I'm becoming a huge fan of these NJ Croce Bendie figures recently. The character selection is fantastic, the prices are reasonable, and the sculpts are spot-on. The only problem is that they aren't actually action figures. I've never owned any bendie figures until a few years ago so I don't know what to expect from this medium. My paranoid imagination foresees them crackling, melting, discoloring, or becoming sticky for no discernible reason. But those random anxieties have proven to be baseless. I now have 8 bendies displayed with little Kaiser doll stands and they all seem perfectly fine mingling with the action figures on my Ikea bookshelves. I'm excited to see what future characters they'll show at Toy Fair. I'm thinking that they'll probably delve into the Arkham video games series next, but secretly my biggest wish is for a companion "Good Girls" box with Batwoman, Huntress, Batgirl, etc. (The Mystery of the Batwoman design is sorely absent from all merchandising). Let's check out the Catwoman below!
Catwoman also comes on a single card. But it appears the Roxy Rocket and Livewire are only available in this Boxset.
I'm not going to show pictures of Catwoman 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. Harley and Poison Ivy.
And here she is with my first NJ Croce bendie, the Julie Newmar Catwoman.
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.
