I've had an interesting change of heart in the past six months or so. When I started collecting LEGOs a few years ago, I was instantly frustrated by the questions of authenticity when purchasing figures on eBay. I started my collection with the second round of DC Superheroes in 2011. I quickly bought up Harley, Catwoman, and Poison Ivy in stores. Then tried to hunt down the old 2008 releases only to consistently confronted with fake versions. I hated it. I vowed never to buy a fake LEGO. But that was before a few very interesting 3rd Party manufacturers started to produce characters we would likely never see in an official LEGO set. My first cave-in purchase was the Fantastic Four, quickly followed by Stargirl. Then about a month ago this little Catwoman started appearing on eBay. This is the first BootLEGO character that was a definite must-have for me. I must say that she is of excellent quality and I will now be keeping my eye out for future figures like this. Let's check out DKR Catwoman!
Although these fake LEGOs often show pictures of boxes, and although I've won some auctions that claimed to include a box, I have yet to actually get my hands on one. Mine came polybagged as seen on the Right.
One of the key differences in the construction of Decool figures vs LEGO is the way the legs attach to the torso. They have three thin tabs that anchor into the torso instead of LEGO's two thick posts.
Catwoman comes with two guns, despite the whip accessory shown in all the promotional imagery.
Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!
Here she is with the 2011 LEGO Catwoman.
And with a Kubrick Batman Returns Catwoman from Medicom and a C3 Minimate Catwoman from DST.
