Scribblenauts: Unmasked - CATWOMAN!

Scribblenauts: Unmasked - A DC Comics Adv - Series 04 - DC Collectibles 2014

Scribblenauts seem to be everywhere these days.  The successful puzzle adventure game had its start back in 2009 and has only gained in popularity since.  I don't even play videogames, but I am still inundated with print ads, digital ads, and merchandise from this property all the time.  A big part of that is probably due to the fact that the franchise is published by Warner Bros and I am a DC Comics loyalist (i.e.  The websites I frequent and comics I read are obvious hotspots for Scribblenauts ads).  The fifth game in the series is 2013's Scribblenauts: Unmasked, A DC Comics Adventure.  This game features tons of DC characters drawn in Scribblenauts style (a design developed by 5th Cell's Edison Yan).  It wasn't long until the merchandising began.  The main toy output from this game are these mini 2.5" tall blind box figures from DC Collectibles.  I was honestly indifferent about getting this Catwoman figure at first.  But then the future waves were revealed with a Harley and Ivy - and having that feisty trio represented in this quirky style was too tempting to pass up.  Let's check out the first of the sirens below!

 The character selection in this series is pretty cool.  Yes, That's Mercury from the Metal Men on the box.  But, No, that's not Gold, it's just a gold Cyborg variant.  Tin will be in wave 5 though.  Some interesting character choices from past waves have included the Star-Spangled Kid, Tharok, and classic Beast Boy.  I just hope the line lasts long enough to get us a Batgirl.

Her arms are just... indecent.  They are attached with a ball joint and one of her arms must have popped off while I was photographing her.  I picked it up in shock wondering if it was some inappropriate accessory from one of the new Game of Thrones figures I had just opened. Haha.

Her goggles are a little funky.  I almost wish they were opaque yellow or metallic.  As is, they have a really odd magnifying effect on her painted eyes underneath.

Catwoman comes with a single accessory of a book-shaped figure stand.  I believe all the figures come with these.

I wish the toys looked as dynamic as they do in the promotional art!

Time for a Group Shot!

  1. Cute! But MAN I hate blind boxes! I have the worst luck with them. But I will have to try to get a Harley when they come out.

    1. Blind boxes are horrible since you can only really judge by weight. I got her on ebay opened and I'll do the same for Harley and Ivy.
