Minifigure Review: Huntress from DC Comics Little Bombshells by Cryptozoic Entertainment

  I don't own the statue of Huntress yet but she's definitely on my short list of the DC Comics Bombshells statues I definitely want to pick up. I absolutely love her rockabilly style! The glasses, the guitar, the bangs, and the purple color scheme just pop! I'm a sucker for any of the Birds of Prey and it's possible that Huntress has the best Bombshells design of any of that crew. Well, I don't know; I really like Black Canary's look, too. It's tough to say. Huntrss is not only a cool looking figure but she's also playing a pretty cool role in Marguerite Bennet's Bombshells comic series. Let's take a closer look at this literally rocking out version of Helena Bertinelli after the break...

 The Facts:


Articulation: None

Accessories: Metal storage canister

Non-Scalper Price: $10 dollars

* I love how Huntress is rocking these purple retro glasses that very much mimic her traditional mask. That's such a neat design choice. The headsculpt is excellent, too! She really looks like she is having a great time.

* Check out the guitar. Not only does it look cool and aid the figure in having a slick pose but it's also hiding a cool little Easter egg. Notice anything? Doesn't the bottom of the guitar look quite a bit like Huntress' crossbow? The answer is, "Yes, it does!" I didn't notice that cool little detail until I was photographing this one, so it came as a nice little surprise.
 * * I'll give the same spiel about the price and the container that I gave with earlier figures in this line: I don't usually talk much about price but l feel the need to mention that for around $10, these seem a couple of dollars too high 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. 

   Huntress is another one of my favorites from this series. Besides the typical excellent sculpting and extremely clean, precise paintwork seen in this series (doubly impressive considering the small scale of these), this figure has one of the coolest "accessories" and one of the best head sculpts in the line. Huntress is a Great and a 1/2 minifigure and is well worth snagging if you get the chance.

  The only Huntress figure I've reviewed prior to this one is the DC Signature Series Huntress from Mattel.
