Pamela Isley Makes Her Long-Awaited DCUC Debut from Mattel 2012
Ughhh. I had major issues with this figure. The image you're looking at in the thumbnail to the left is my final product after I repainted her face. I normally wait a long time before customizing a figure (I try to "live with it" a while first), but I needed to do something to make amends for my initial deflated reaction when I pulled her out of the box. I love Poison Ivy. She was the reason I subscribed to Club Infinite Earths. The prototypes shown at conventions were beautiful. I was really excited to get her. Then yesterday I got the final product in my greedy little hands. My first and most major problem was her skin tone. The odd color and translucent quality of the plastic makes her look glow-in-the-dark. The second gripe I had was the awful oversimplified and sloppy facepaint. It was ridiculous how low-quality it was. The third problem is her incredibly loose leg joints. She can barely stand up without flopping over at the waist. I was also surprised to see that the ivy snaking up her leg and arms were separate pieces of plastic that look a bit sloppy in person.
I love the graphics on the back and side!
Her hair sculpt is great. Arguably the best we've seen from the DC Universe ladies.
Now on to my face customization. Here is what she looked like straight out of the package.
I'm not quite done with her yet, I want to darken around her eyelashes and give her a more sultry, seductive look, but for the most part I'm happy with the results. I also filled out her lips to make them look less puckered.
