Wonder Woman has had a ton of animated designs throughout her career. She is the most cartoon-ized female superhero by far. The groundbreaking Super Friends series contained 7 iterations spread over 13 years and Wonder Woman was featured as a main cast member throughout. Her look changed a lot of the course of the series as would be expected, so it's important to note that this action figure is based on the earlier versions from the 1970s. The later animated versions had much longer and more dynamic/modern hair. These Super Friends action figures are some of the most perfectly executed animated-style action figures I've ever seen. They capture the simple colorful joy of the cartoons while maintaining enough artistic interpretation to easily fit in with any comic-based collection. I'm a huge fan (and you should be too!). The James Shoop sculpts are fantastic. And the series was popular enough to warrant a selective re-release (of certain characters) in the third Re-Activated series from DCD.
Thanks again to James for sending me this figure. I've always regretted never getting her when she was in the stores (either time) and now at long last she's in my greedy little hands! You're a star!
The re-released "Re-Acivated" version has a slight re-deco. Her costume now has a subtle pearlized sheen to it, where before it was flat, but bright, colors. Also, the lasso is painted gold instead of the previous yellow.
The three following pictures are of the original 2-Pack release.
Diana's pose is interesting. You can easily make her stand at attention with her legs straight, but then the stars on her pelvis don't line up. When you line them up, she's in a pretty distinct walking stride.
Here are a few images of Wonder Woman from the Super Friends series.
I found this really cool, yet disappointingly inactive, blog called Kick Azz Girlz that has very long and detailed informational posts (if you can't tell, I'm a sucker for long posts). They have an awesome chronicle of the Animated Wonder Woman over time. Great stuff.
Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!
