When the DC Bombshells designs first started showing up four years ago, I thought they were really fun, but I honestly wasn't head-over-heels for them. Then a year into the comic variants, I saw the Batwoman #32 cover and kind of fell in love. I didn't necesarily love the art itself or the layout of the cover, but the concept of Batwoman as a baseball-playing bat-woman was pretty genius. Then for a second I got offended about a sapphic softball stereotype, but then I thought about how much I love A League of Their Own and my two Starting Lineup Cooperstown Collection female figures, and I gave her a pass. She is easily my second favorite of this figure series so far (Poison Ivy being by surprise top choice). The sculpts by Paul Harding in this series are fantastic. He has come a long way since those 3.75" Injustice figures. I can't wait to see what figures he does next. I have a hunch he did the upcoming Icons Balent Catwoman which looks stunning. We'll see I guess. Let's check out Batwoman!
For some reason the solicit pics and showroom photos made me think these ladies would be scrawny and awkwardly-proportioned. I can assure you they are not. I'm excited to see what the upcoming Bombshells Batgirl figure looks like now because all the images I've seen so far look super weird, but that's exactly how I felt about these girls a year ago.
Batwoman comes with four extras hands, a gloved hand, a baseball, and a bat.
The Batwoman pinup design graced the variant cover of Batwoman #32 in June 2014.
Here is the Batwoman Bombshells DCC Statue from 2015.
So, I know this is impossible, but how awesome would it be to get the rest of the Batgirls?!
In the Bombshells comics, Harper Row, Kathy Duquesne, Alysia Yeoh, Bette Kane, Nell Little, and Felicity Smoak make up the vigilante group, the Batgirls. What a cool set of retools this group could make.
Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!
Here she is with the only other 6-7" scale Kate Kane figure so far, the 2007 52 Series Batwoman.
And with my two other Bombshells purchases: Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn.
