Ben 10 Alien Force - Helen Wheels - UK Exclusive - BanDai 2010
I discovered this little gem a few months ago when I reviewed Gwen Anodite. I still feel that the Ben 10 franchise has produced far too few female figures. Aside from this Helen figure, all we've seen are variations of Gwen Tennyson so far. This figure is definitely a step in the right direction. My favorite thing about Ben 10 is the awesome character design of the aliens. Even though I don't know much about the storylines or characters, what I would love to see are female figures of each of these alien species. Helen is one of the Kineceleran aliens (the same species as the main character XLR8). Almost all sources I've found online state this figure was a UK Exclusive and not available in North America, but I bought mine from Canada so that may be a little inaccurate. The bright colors, cool design, and overall fun factor of this figure is amazing. I hope we see more, because I combed through the Ben 10 Planet wiki and there are tons of cool female aliens out there. For now, let's check out Helen Wheels below!
Helen comes with a small pistol-type gun and a file card.
Her articulation and poseability is really fun and well-designed. She has eight simple joints at her knees, hips, shoulders, neck , and tail. But for some reason you can still get her into a lot of great action poses.
Here are some images of Helen from the cartoon.
Time for some Comparison Pics!
