The DC Justice League New 52 Action Figure Set: Up Close with Wonder WomanMarch 29, 2014
Our review of the DC Justice League New 52 Action Figure Set continues with a member of the venerable trinity of DC Comics superheroes, Wonder Woman. As with the Green Lantern, Flash, and Aquaman figures that weve previously featured, sculptor Jack Mathews, has done a commendable job of bringing one of the founding members of the Justice League to life with a look that closely matches the aesthetic created by legendary artist, Jim Lee, for the New 52 series of comics.
Wonder Woman stands over 6.75 tall with a robust construction that lends the figure a solid and sturdy feel. The sculpture of the face and physique effectively capture the feminine essence of the powerful Amazon warrior, but in a manner that respects the characters nearly 73-year heritage. Wonder Womans painted finish is cleanly applied overall, and the boldly colored elements of her tiara, corset, and boots are particularly well done.
Like the other figures in the DC Justice League New 52 Action Figure Set, Wonder Womans poseability is somewhat limited. The joints in the elbows, shoulders, knees, and neck only offer limited articulation, making it clear that this modestly poseable recreation of the “Princess of Themyscira” was conceived for display rather than manipulation.
Wonder Womans left hand has been molded to grip the hilt of a weapon, but unfortunately she doesnt come with any accessories. Our other quibble is that Wonder Womans iconic Lasso of Truth is permanently moored to her right hip. The form is nicely done, but its fixed configuration represents a lost opportunity to make this impressive DC collectible even better.
Like her limited edition cohorts, Wonder Woman makes another strong argument for the DC Justice League New 52 Action Figure Set. With the cost in the $100 USD price range, fans and collectors get the seven superhero pillars of the DC Comics universe with the quality and authenticity befitting their legacy.
Well be closing out our review of the DC Justice League New 52 Action Figure Set with Batman and Superman soon, but until then weve provided more images of Wonder Woman below.
