Thank you to DC Collectibles for providing their The New Batman Adventures Catwoman figure for review. Look for her in comic shops and online retailers beginning March 22nd, 2017.
Availability: March 2017
Catwoman is based on her appearance as seen in The New Batman Adventures, which was a new title following Batman The Animated Series. The figure depicts the likeness as seen in the episode “You Scratch My Back“, and she is sculpted in her black outfit with blue facial deco, large white eyes, black lipstick, and pearl white teeth. Her head sculpt is nicely done with a smile. The head sculpt has the pointy ears on top that are a bit sharp.
Comparing her to the previous Catwoman figure as shown above, she is shorter than the previous figure. As fans know, the design completely changed in the series, and DC Collectibles did a great job on character likeness and bringing it to the toyline. Every aspect about the figure is completely different, and even the included whip is newly tooled. The articulation is the only aspect about the figures that are the same, with the exception of the ankle swivel joint on the first Catwoman figure that was not carried over to the new one.
Included with Catwoman are three sets of interchangeable hand sculpts, a whip, a black cat, and an acrylic figure stand with base.
