Minifigure Review: Catwoman from DC Comics- Batman Tiny Mights by CultureFly

 


   Last year minifigure collectors got pretty excited over the Scooby-Doo Tiny Mights by CultureFly. A series of 2 inch rubber minifigures similar to M.U.S.C.L.E., the Tiny Mights were apparently sold at certain Walmart locations. I never found any, though. When I heard that CultureFly was following up the Scooby-Doo series of minifigures with Batman Tiny Mights, I knew I'd have to jump in and acquire them. These are awesome! They're very M.U.S.C.L.E.- like with crisp sculpts, bold solid colors, and just the right level of rubbery texture. They're not squishy or gooey, but they're solid and brittle, either. The DC Comics- Batman Tiny Mights come three to set, packaged in a little plastic Batmobile. The Batmobile is translucent, though, so for the most part you can tell what figures are inside. I ordered mine through CultureFly's website where they're sold as a set of four packs, so twelve figures, for $20 bucks. That's pretty good for minifigures. I ordered three sets and while I only ended up getting 11 of the 12 sculpts (I'm still looking for the Joker), I didn't get any color duplicates. From what I can tell there are different colorways for these: Grey, yellow, purple, green, peach/ M.U.S.C.L.E. pink, red, glow-in-the-dark blue, and glittery translucent green (There's also a special Arkham Asylum set of all twelve sculpts in translucent glittery purple). I'm not going to look at all the sculpts in the series but I'm going to check out a few of them, starting with Catwoman, Batman's former adversary, regular ally, and sometimes wife. Ready to check her out? Then join me after the break...

    


The Facts:

Height: 1 and 13/16ths inches

Non-Scalper Price: $5-$7 dollars for 3 figures and a plastic Batmobile case.



The Positives:



* These are some very sharp minifigures that really do give me the M.U.S.C.L.E. vibe due their their sculpts and proportions and the Monster in My Pocket vibe due to the bright, bold colors. Catwoman is wearing her modern catsuit outfit with the large ring on the front zipper and her hood with short cat ears and goggles. Her right hand is holding a whip while her left has her fingers splayed open wide, looking like she's ready to deliver up a vicious scratch. 





* Check out the detail on the whip! It's not just a whip-shaped stream of plastic; it actually looks braided. It's quite cool!


* There are multiple different body types in this series of Tiny Mights, so Catwoman doesn't look the same as the guys. While still having some stylized aesthetics, she's still quite sleek and feminine, too. There aren't always that many women in minifigure lines like this, so it's cool to see a different body type reflected. 



* These sets come in a little plastic Batmobile with a plastic wrap around the middle. The Batmobile splits in half, so you can use it for storing little trinkets. It's a neat idea and the fact that it's translucent means you can look through it (if you find these in stores) and should be able to identify a figure you need. 

   Catwoman is a fun little minifigure and I'm quite glad I got her in purple in my shipment (I also got neon green, which is still cool but it's not exactly a common Catwoman color). CultureFly has done a nice job with this line and I'm hoping they expand it. These are minifigures definitely worth your time if you're a minifigure collector or a Batman fan. There are plenty enough Batman heroes and villains for a second series, too. Catwoman is a Great and a 1/2 minifigure and well worth tracking down. 



   If you're looking for more of Catwoman/ Selina Kyle, I've also reviewed McFarlane's DC Multiverse Catwoman (Batman: Knightfall), Mattel's Classic TV Series Catwoman, the Legends of Batman special edition Catwoman, basic Catwoman, and Egyptian Batman & Egyptian Catwoman, the Lil Bombshells Catwoman, the Greg Capullo Catwoman, the Darwyn Cooke Catwoman, the Arkham Knight Catwoman, and the Nano Metalfigs Catwoman DC44 from the series 3 5-Pack A and the series 3 10-pack and DC 112 from the Series 4 20-pack.

   If you're looking for more of the Batmobile I've also reviewed the Hot Wheels (2017)
Batmobile: Batman V. Superman 237/365 and Batmobile: Batman V. Superman 329/365, the Hot Wheels (2015) Batman: Arkham Knight BatmobilleBatman Begins BatmobileBatman Classic TV Series Batmobile, and Batmobile, the Hot Wheels (2014) The Tumbler- Camouflage Version, and the Lego Batman The Riddler Chase set, which has a Batmobile in it.
