Rock Candy - CATWOMAN (Purple Suit)!

DC Comics - Rock Candy - Summer Exclusive - Catwoman - Funko 2016

I've never been a huge fan of the 1990's Purple-suited Jim Balent Catwoman. I didn't like much about superhero comics at all in the 90s and even a favorite character of mine like Selina wasn't an exception. I felt that her constantly gritted teeth, oversized chest, and impractical mane of hair was just silly. The gray catsuit that preceded it and the Darwyn Cooke version that succeeded it were two of my favorites, but the purple one always made me wince. That said, I think this SDCC/Hot Topic exclusive is too cute for words. I'm now a big fan of these Rock Candy figures. They don't really fit in with my collection, but that's never stopped me before - although I'm strictly limiting myself to Bat-family characters for real estate reasons. I expected these SDCC/Summer Exclusives to be impossible to find. But I was able to preorder one for myself easily, and then this afternoon I went into my Hot Topic and they had 5 or 6 of her. Hopefully all my future hunts go so smoothly. Let's check out Catwoman below!

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here she is with the other Rock Candy Summer Exclusive, New 52 Harley Quinn.

And here are all my Bat-Ladies so far: Burnside Batgirl, Classic Harley, Purple Catwoman, New 52 Harley, and Classic Batgirl.



  1. Never really cared for the purple suit, and I think it's for exactly the reasons you mentioned. This is a cute figure though!

    1. Yeah Funko has a knack for making me appreciate costumes I would otherwise despise. I'd like to see them tackle Harley's kinky nurse outfit or Alicia Silverstone's Batgirl.

  2. How did you get the New 52 Suicide Squad Harley??
