I rarely buy Wonder Woman figures. I realized long ago that if I were to dive headfirst into collecting Wonder Woman, my collection would easily double or triple in size and I would have an oppressively patriotic looking house. I have reluctantly relegated myself to living vicariously through other people's amazing collections (ExperienceTheWonder is my favorite). Wonder Woman is easily the most merchandised female superhero of all time... so little gems like this Jae Lee Designer Series version can be easy to overlook. However I think that would be a great disservice because this is one of the nicest looking figures of Diana I have ever seen. It's definitely highly stylized, but it's also very classic at the same time. This is maybe the 5th or 6th Wonder Woman I've been unable to resist adding to my collection, and she is definitely worthy of that exclusive status. Hopefully she sells well because I would love to see more Jae Lee styled figures. Let's check out Wonder Woman below!
This figure is gorgeous. The Jonathan Matthews sculpt is perfection and the color palette and paint apps are impeccable. I truly wasn't planning on buying this figure, but I just could not pass on her once I saw her in person.
Her super-short skirt is a little cringe-worthy. But I'll be displaying her from the front so I can overlook it.
Wonder Woman comes with a sword and a cool curved staff.
Seriously, her skirt is embarrassing. Diana showing buttcheek is so awkward. If the skirt was a fraction of a centimeter longer, it would be fine. Risque, but fine. But as is I think it's just silly.
Here are some images of Jae Lee's Wonder Woman from the comics.
Note that the buttcheek thing isn't nearly so awkward in two dimensions.
Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!
Here she is with the Jae Lee Catwoman.
And here she is with the 2007 Terry Dodson Wonder Woman and the 2009 Justice League of America Boxset Wonder Woman (with the Adam Hughes head and Ed Benes body).
