Minifigure Review: Wonder Woman (Series 2) from DC Comics LIl Bombshells by Cryptozoic Entertainment

 Series 2 of DC Comics Lil Bombshells has two resculpts of characters who also appeared in series 1: Harley Quinn, who I reviewed a week or so ago, and Wonder Woman. Kind of tells you who DC's two most prominent are, doesn't it? I reviewed the first series Wonder Woman figure last year and today I'm checking out this second version. Ready for a new minifigure of the first lady of DC Comics? Then join me after the break...



 The Facts:

Height: 2 7/8ths inches

Articulation: None

Accessories: Tin storage container

Designed by: Pedro Astudillo

Sculpted by: Sam Greenwell

Non-Scalper Price: $10 dollars


 Comparison:

* The series 2 Wonder Woman (left) is very similar to the series 1 version (right). The difference is a slightly different pose and the addition of a shield in left hand of the series 2 figure. I really wish Cryptozoic had tried to do more to differentiate these two as they look very similar on the shelf, even more so than the two Harley Quinn figures.



* Despite looking really similar to the series 1 figure, this is still a really nice minifigure. The sculpt and paintwork are impressive, particularly in this small scale.

* The shield is the biggest thing that differentiates the two figures and it's a cool piece. It's very stylized, certainly not insanely detailed or anything, but looks pretty cool. I kind of wish Diana were wielding a sword, too, though, to really differentiate this look. A sword or a wrench would have been ideal to help complete the warrior look.
 *  I don't usually talk much about price when it comes to toys. I do want to mention here, though, that these seem to be around $10 which seems a couple of dollars too high, especially for a blind-bagged series. Well, blind canned. Yeah, these actually come in little tins with removable lids. It's a cool gimmick although I imagine it's what is adding the extra few bucks to the line. The tin is quite nice, though, and looks good on display with the figure. There's even a checklist on the back.
  Nothing wrong with this figure at all; it's a solid minifigure of Wonder Woman with excellent paint and sculpting. I am a bit disappointed, though, that Cryptozoic Entertainment had done a bit more to differentiate the two different Wonder Woman figures. The Bombshells line seems to have lots of variations and different color schemes and something to set this figure apart more would have been welcome. She's a Good and a 1/2 figure considering how similar she looks to what you might already have.

  1. I don't have any of these because you can't find them around here and I boycott online ordering this year just because of the high shipping costs. I miss my guy who would fill a BOX of my ordered stuff and only charge me NINE dollars for shipping. Retail plus cheap shipping is the only way for me.
