DC Multiverse - Clayface Collect & Connect: Jessica Cruz - Mattel 2018

Jessica Cruz is one of these newer DC Comics characters that I literally know nothing about. She appeared in 2014 and I thought she looked awesome, but somehow I've never read a single issue she has appeared in. I was really excited when a DC Collectibles Icons figure of Jessica was announced a couple years ago at SDCC, but if we were only destined to get one figure, I'm glad it was this Multiverse version in the larger scale. The Batwoman and Jessica Cruz Green Lantern have spectacular new bodies. I'm really impressed with the articulation and overall silhouette. It's makes me extremely excited for the upcoming Stephanie Brown Spoiler and (rumored?) Balent Catwoman. Hopefully this new phase of Multiverse inspires Legends-level SDCC exclusives (because I want obscure characters dammit!) This figure makes me want to catch up on this character's comics because I really dig her classic Lantern costume. Previous efforts for female Lanterns weren't as on-brand. Let's check out Jessica Crew below!

Jessica Cruz comes with a lantern and several green energy pieces that wind around her limbs. I wish there were some images of her wearing these accessories on the packaging to give some clue as to their intended placement.

Jessica also comes with two leg pieces for the Clayface Build-a-Figure.

So I made a simple repaint of Jessica's Right eye. The eye and the lantern logo around it seem shrunken-down in order to make room for the stamping machine between her hair and nose. I widened the green logo and enlarged her eye. All pictures past this point will be the customized one.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here is Jessica Cruz with the 2009 DC Universe Classics Katma Tui. The Mattel DC bodies have improved greatly.

Here she is with her wave-mate, Batwoman.

And here is my collection of Green Lantern ladies. From Left to Right: Jade, Katma Tui, Arisia, Jessica Cruz, Boodikka, and Soranik Natu (I forgot to include Fatality).
