Gotham is one of the most surprising shows in my TV roster. It's surprising because I fully expected to hate the show when it was being advertised all over San Diego last Summer. When you combine a Batman purist like myself with a network TV interpretation, it sounds like a recipe for disaster. But the show is great. It's creepy, funny, stylish, and I fully embrace it. Smallville, Arrow, and Flash were all disappointing to me. Sure, I like that they exist, but there is a style to them that I just can't get on board with. Gotham is very different though. Maybe it's because the actors aren't all underwear models. Maybe it's because it's not gleaning dramatic inspiration from soap operas. But I think it's largely because, despite the plethora of Batman mythos, this origin era has rarely been expanded upon. Even the most casual Batman fan could get sucked in. Camren Bicondova as a young Selina Kyle is one of my favorite parts of the show so it's super exciting to get an action figure so soon. Let's check her out below!
Gentle Giant is the go-to sculptor for actor likenesses in the toy world. I think this sculpt is pretty much perfect.
Selina's only personal accessory is a bottle of milk.
(Just like the one she stole in one of the first episodes).
Selina's articulation is great. DST has come a long way since those early Marvel Select ladies.
Selina comes with the top half of the Crime Alley diorama.
Jim Gordon comes with the bottom half of the wall and the ground.
Here are a few images of Camren Bicondova as Selina from the show. I can't get over how perfectly cast she is. She looks young, rebellious, feline, and she bears quite a resemblance to Michelle Pfeiffer.
I've heard in interviews before that Camren was a dancer, but I just now looked her up on youtube. The girl's got some moves! Hopefully she gets to flaunt her skills on Gotham.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!
Here she is with her Funko Pop! figure.
