I'm loving the look of this Diana of Themyscira costume. Usually the island apparel for Wonder Woman is nothing more than a toga -- which isn't a bad thing. I actually like the nod to ancient Greece with the gladiator sandals and olive leaves in her hair, but I feel like I have a few action figures like that already and them seem so nondescript. This movie version of that look pays homage to the classic design but tweaks the color palette toward earthtones and adds some details that make it more formidable and battle-ready. I love it. And once again Mattel knocked it out of the park. I had really low expectations but now I have a renewed sense of excitement for all the upcoming Multiverse ladies: Batwoman, Jessica Cruz Green Lantern, DKIII Wonder Woman, Wonder Girl, and New52 Wonder Woman. They're going to be so great (if they actually all get released - there was a disheartening lack of these figures shown at Toy Fair). Time will tell. Let's check out Diana of Themyscira below!
Diana comes with a sword and a lasso sculpted in a coil. The swords in this series are made of a flexible plastic that tends to warp in the packaging.
Diana comes with the Pelvis of Ares.
Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!
Here are the three ladies from this wave: Hippolyta, Diana, and Wonder Woman.
And here she is with a (slightly retouched) BvS Wonder Woman from last year.
And finally here's the whole wave with Ares and Steve Trevor.
