DC Collectibles TV Series SUPERGIRL!

DC TV Action Figures (Supergirl) #1 - Supergirl - DC Collectibles 2017

I just saw that season two of Supergirl is up on Netflix and I have a date with my couch two weekends from now to catch up. I loved the first season so much and I felt so deflated when CBS announced its cancellation. But then CW swept in and saved the day. The unfortunate thing is that I personally have no easy real-time access to CW so I have to wait for streaming or DVD. Hopefully the second season is good. I know one of the reasons for CBS to drop it was the high production cost, which I can only assume prompted a major budget cut when CW took over. I'll report back in a month. This is the first figure I've picked up from the DCC's DC TV line and I'm pretty impressed. Melissa Benoist has an extremely unique face. Every time she makes a different expression she looks like a new person, so my hopes for a decent likeness are pretty low, but I must say I'm very happy with this figure. The face paint isn't as detailed as the box imagery, but the essence of Melissa is there. Let's check out Supergirl below!

The box lists the sculptors as James Marsano and Adam Ross. I don't know if they both worked on this Supergirl figure or if they each did separate figures in the same wave. Neither of their personal websites show this particular figure so who knows. It's also possible that her head was re-sculpted since the original solicits and a different artist worked on that. The original pics were pretty messy.

This figure has a lot of articulation, but surprisingly she isn't super poseable. Between the restrictive hair and skirt, and the unarticulated torso, you're kind of limited to few choice poses. Luckily she looks great in them!

Time for some Comparison Pics!

Here she is with the Multiverse figure from last year.



  1. She's stunning! Kind of reminds me of vintage DC Direct.

    1. I really miss old DC Direct. As much as I appreciated all the new stuff they are doing with movie figures and icons, the classic DCD stuff was so much better. At least most of the Designer Series figures still maintain that style and quality.

    2. How I do too! I was in college from 1997 to 2002 and that was a great time in general so maybe I'm biased when I get nostalgic for that time period of DC direct. The Designer Series is totally a throwback, and the simple articulation and clean lines of this figure also remind me of vintage DC Direct.
