A New Batgirl Review: Batgirl #15 from HeroClix: Harley Quinn and the Gotham Girls by Wizkids/ NECA

    Here's another HeroClix minifigure I pulled in the booster box I picked up recently: Thrillkiller Batgirl! While I've owned the DC Direct Thrillkiller Batgirl for years I've actually never read the story. It's one of the few of the more well known Elseworlds titles I haven't read; it always seemed to be a bit tougher to find. It's coming back in print later this year and I already have a copy preordered and ready for me, so I'm looking forward to it. Now onto this figure! I was pretty excited to pull this from the HeroClix booster pack I purchased because I love Batgirl, I love the colors of this outfit, and I love minifigures. Let's take a closer look at her after the break...

 The Facts:

Height: 1 3/4ths inches (including base)

Non-Scalper Price: $10-$11 dollars for a booster set of five figures.

 * While the paint on the face looks a bit strange up close (well, magnified under my macro lens), in person or at a regular viewing distance Batgirl looks excellent. Black and orange look great together (Halloween colors!). I'm actually not sure of the plot of Thrillkiller but it definitely seems to present a different portrait of Batgirl as she's wielding a pistol in her left hand and what might be a batarang in her right.

* To help you play the game each HeroClix figure includes a card with rules and other information on it. I've never played the game, though; I just like the little minifigures.

   Thrillkiller Batgirl is a cool mini. I was very surprised to find her in my booster pack. While I was hoping to pull one of the Bombshells (spoiler: I didn't) this was a nice consolation prize. She's a cool mini with a unique pose, the consistent HeroClix base, and a very eye-catching paint job. She's a Good and a 1/2 little mini.

I've reviewed so many Batgirl figures that she has her own archive! Check out the Batgirl Library for more Batgirl reviews!

  1. I am a big fan of the Thrillkiller Batgirl and all the characters in that tale. Dan Bereton is one of my favorites too. Not enough cosplayers do this character for my liking.

    1. I'm excited to read it. While I'm keeping up with Rebirth in trades this year I'm going out of my way to read some of the older stories I've missed, too. My first goal is to read all of the major events post crisis- Flashpoint. We'll see how that goes. I reread Crisis on Infinite Earths in the middle of last year and I have Legends on the way.
