Sideshow’s Catwoman Sixth Scale Figure: Prowling PurrfectionJuly 7, 2014
Batmans burgling feline foil joins an ever-expanding line-up of DC Comics villains with the release of the Catwoman Sixth Scale Figure by Sideshow Collectibles. This 12 reproduction of Gotham Citys femme fatale is certain to appeal to fans of the Arkham series of Batman video games with its stunning reproduction of the characters re-imagined visage, costume, and tools of her felonious trade.
The sculpture of the Catwoman Sixth Scale Figure is immediately impressive. Although her feminine contours are mostly concealed beneath the detailed, black get-up, Selina Kyles hooded portrait has been beautifully rendered and finished. The masterfully fashioned bodysuit is a sixth scale marvel on its own with cloth construction, a working zipper, along with its accompanying fabric harness, belt, and faux-metallic cat belt-buckle. The two pairs of 3 tall, molded plastic boots also bear special mention. They feature realistic looking tread, straps, and clasps that bolster the figures already authentic appearance.
As with similar releases from Sideshow Collectibles, the Catwoman Sixth Scale Figure features a highly articulated female body. With dozens of joints in the arms, legs, torso, and neck, Catwoman offers plenty of posing options for collectors to take advantage of.
The Sideshow Collectibles Catwoman Sixth Scale Figure arrives with a full cache of accessories. In addition to two additional pairs of hands, Catwoman comes with dual interchangeable head sculpts with varying portraits that allow her to be displayed with either a wry grin or a ferocious snarl. The furtive cat burglar also ships with a wearable backpack and goggles, along with a whip, diamond, and display stand that serve round out the package. As a bonus, the Sideshow Exclusive version includes a diminutive sculpture of a feline idol as well.
For DC Comics fans with a penchant for Batmans coterie of evil-doing foes, Sideshows Catwoman Sixth Scale Figure is clearly a collectible worth apprehending. With its exquisitely detailed aesthetic, and a retail price thats sub-$200 USD, this is one action figure that wont remain on the prowl for long.
