DC Comics SuperHero Girls - BATGIRL & JET!

DC Comics SuperHero Girls - Vehicles Series - Batgirl & Jet - Mattel 2016

The DC Super Hero Girls toy line is off to a great start. I loved the first wave of action figures released back in March. But I was half expecting it to be a one-and-done thing. Luckily I was proven wrong and there have been several additional action figure releases since. First was the playset exclusive Batgirl, then the Katana figure. Next came an "action feature" Harley and Wonder Woman (I skipped these since their sculpts weren't super unique). And finally a new Batgirl and Wonder Woman released in vehicle sets. The fact that we've received three unique Batgirl figures so far thrills me. Hopefully we will get a lot more characters and variants in the future. Catwoman and Hawkgirl seem like a definite possibility, but I'm hoping for the impossible cameo characters like Black Orchid and Dove. If it takes off like Monster High, maybe we'll get weirdo characters as convention exclusives. I have high hopes and healthily low expectations.  I can't wait to see.  Let's check out Batgirl and her Jet below!

Batgirl comes with a helmet version of her cowl.

Here is the Jet. It's pretty cool, but I wish the colors actually matched the colors of the figure.

Time for some Comparison Pics!

Here are the Batgirls so far!  From Left to Right: 
Standard Single Release, Batgirl & Jet version, and Super Hero High School playset version.

Note that these figures share almost no parts. These could easily be repaints, but there are sculptural differences everywhere.

And here she is with the new Wonder Woman from the other vehicle set.
