I think Dorbz are going to be a major problem for me. In the past week I've bought four of these cute little figures and I'm sure there will be more in my future. When these figures were first teased before Toy Fair this Winter, I was apprehensive about their size and cost. The Vinyl Vixens series turned me off a bit when I saw how large and pricey they were. And these Dorbz had the potential for the same disappointments. Then at Toy Fair I saw the size first hand and I really liked it. They stand about 3/4" shorter than a POP figure with heads just slightly larger than a golf ball. The price was still a mystery to me, but luckily now that they're showing up in stores, I know that they're anywhere from 8 bucks (DC ones at my record store) to 10 bucks (Guardians of the Galaxy at Hot Topic). So, yeah, I'm hooked. I'm excited for the upcoming Catwoman and Poison Ivy (as well as Mystique and Scarlet Witch). And I'm predicting tons of variants. Black-suited and '66 TV style Batgirls will be a welcome addition. Bring them on!
One point of articulation. As to be expected from a vinyl collectible.
The style of these Dorbz remind me of two things,,, specifically the character design for South Park characters (especially in profile), and the old-school Little People figures with the peg bodies form the early eighties.
Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!
Here she is with the Harley Dorbz (which I'll be posting on soon).
