The New Batman Adventures - Bendie POISON IVY!

The New Batman Adventures - Bad Girls Boxset - Poison Ivy - NJCroce 2015

It's such a good feeling as a collector when you feel like you've completed a set.  A constant trio of characters I'm always trying to a assemble is Catwoman, Harley Quinn, and Poison Ivy.  When these characters came together in the cartoons and comics, it was just instant magic. Their personalities blend and clash in an entertaining and addictive ways and toys of any single one of them just seem incomplete unless you can get all three. Luckily most toy companies seem to feel this way as well. Lego, Mez-Itz, Funko Pop, Imaginext, and even Polly Pockets have all made the effort to complete the group. Now NJ Croce has joined the fray with this Poison Ivy bendie.  I know Catwoman was released at the same time, but she was likely to be produced no matter what.  Ivy is almost always the odd woman out, so her inclusion in a toy line is always a reason to cheer. Although bendies are usually not on the radar of collectors, I think these figures should not be overlooked. Let's check out Poison Ivy below!

Poison Ivy also comes on a single card.  But it appears the Roxy Rocket and Livewire are only available in this Boxset.

Like my Catwoman review from yesterday, I'm not going to show pictures of Poison Ivy in all kinds of crazy bendie poses.  I like to keep these figures looking fresh so I just pose them once in a boring "at attention" stance and leave them be.  I should note that the interior wire armature ends short on all the limbs.. halfway down her forearms and halfway down her shins she becomes a limp noodle.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here are the Gotham City Sirens all together. Catwoman and Harley Quinn.

And with Batgirl added for the complete Gotham Girls group.

And here is the roster for the Bad Girls Box set.  Harley Quinn, Catwoman, Poison Ivy, Livewire, and Roxy Rocket. Note that the Harley Quinn figure is the same as the one released earlier this year.
