Aquaman Movie 12" True Moves MERA!

Aquaman Movie: True Moves 12" - Basic Series 01 - Mera - Mattel 2018

I'm in the process of revamping my toy room right now and one of the focuses will be to better accommodate my booming 1:6 scale action figure collection. I know there have been 12" action figures for decades, but in the past they almost always have had removable clothing and high price tags and they blurred the lines between dolls and action figures. I have nothing against dolls, but I've limited myself to not collecting them (strict parameters are very important for a compulsive collector like me). But then back in 2016 I first started paying attention to a new trend of lower-cost, fully-sculpted 1:6 action figures. They had been coming out for a while, but female characters weren't included until early 2016 (Wonder Woman and Black Widow). Now this scale seems to be a staple product for most comic-based movie merchandise (I'm eagerly awaiting the inevitable Captain Marvel figures). In a few short years I somehow assembled 25! This newest Mera one is probably the best yet. Let's check her out below!

This figure is superb. The detailed scales on her costume, the perfectly sculpted face and hair, and the overall proportions and articulation are near perfection. And for the low price of under ten bucks, it pretty much is perfect.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here is Mera with the recent 12" Batgirl.

And with her recent Multiverse figure.

And finally here she is with my other two 12" DC Movie figures: Wonder Woman and Harley Quinn.
