Woohoo! I now own my second bendable figure. I never thought I would see the day. I think the toy gods knew it would take a Julie Newmar Catwoman to get me to cave again. Bendable toys are an interesting conundrum for action figure collectors. The character selection can sometimes be awesome, but they just don't have the same display potential and longevity of a true action figure. But being the big Julie Newmar fan that I am, I knew this beauty would find it's way onto my shelves. I first discovered this figure at Toy Fair earlier this year when I went out of my way to hunt down the NJCroce booth to see their new products. Their booth is kind of buried in the novelty section (i.e. far from the action figure area that I gravitate toward). Last year I stumbled across their New Frontier style bendies and was impressed with the quality (and distribution - these suckers are everywhere). So anyway, I made the trek down the aisles where all the vendors were throwing balls at me or startling me with noisemakers and was very happy to see Catwoman on a peg. Let's check her out below!
I'm starting off with this picture showing her arms bent into a more natural position. The pre-packaged pose has good intentions, but makes her arms look like spaghetti.
The turnaround shots will all have her spaghetti arm pose.
I'm using a Kaiser 3.5" doll stand. They are so useful. They hold up all of my non-pegged vintage 3.75" figures as well as my fledgling Bendie collection. I got mine on Amazon.
Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!
Here she is with my other Bendie: Batman Beyond's Inque.
