DC SuperHero Girls - WONDER WOMAN & CYCLE!

DC SuperHero Girls - Vehicles Series - Wonder Woman & Motorcycle - Mattel 2016

Finally here is the last of the recent DC Super Hero Girls releases, Wonder Woman with her Motorcycle. I have a feeling this line will be full of re-releases with subtle variants (we've seen several already), but this Wonder Woman really intrigued me. There is an interesting precedent for Diana wearing a motorcycle helmet. There were several outfits worn by Lynda Carter in the 1977 Wonder Woman series that utilized helmets. And the overall outfit reminds me of the Cathy Lee Crosby Wonder Woman from 1974. I doubt any of these considerations were planned, but I will gladly pretend they were intentional homages. Once they release a Catwoman I guess we'll see if they dip into her plethora of historical costume designs for inspiration. I have high hopes for this line and I'm especially excited now that we've seen some well-designed variants. I can't wait to see what the future holds. I'll be keeping my eyes peeled. In the meantime, let's check out Wonder Woman and her Motorcycle below!

Here are a few pictures of Lynda Carter in her motorcycle and skateboarding helmets.

And here is Cathy Lee Crosby from the 1974 Wonder Woman film. The color blocking of her outfit reminds me of this figure.

I'm going to take a minute here to post a couple pictures I snapped of the two additional "Hero Action" figures : Wonder Woman and Harley Quinn.  I tried to find pics of these online but had no luck. So I ran out to the store and took them myself.  They are very similar to the first wave of figures, but with retooled torsos that house the gears that make their arms swing. Wonder Woman seems to have a unique hairpiece.

Time for some Comparison Pics!

Here she is with with standard release Wonder Woman from March.

And here she is with the other vehicle pilot - Batgirl from the Batgirl & Jet set.
