DC Multiverse Signature Collection - Wonder Woman (Lynda Carter) - Mattel 2018

I exclaimed last week how the vintage-style She-Ra figure was a long time coming. It's easy to say that any new figure you really enjoy is long overdue, but it's rare when it's so undeniably true (like that She-Ra and this Lynda Carter Wonder Woman). From the mid-2000s thru 2011, I was a pretty active member on the official DC Comics message boards (which were eliminated around the time of the New52 reboot). On those forums, a Lynda Carter action figure was absolutely the number one most requested figure. I swear every hypothetical wishlist posted by one of the members included her. I thought we might eventually see one from DC Collectibles or NECA, but I am honestly shocked that Mattel is the company to finally follow through. And the quality of this figure is teriffic. The paint apps and likeness are honestly beyond my expectations. I know we haven't heard much more about this Signature Collection sub-line, but I have an extensive wishlist (Pfeiffer Catwoman!) Let's check out Lynda below!

Lynda comes with a figure stand with a graphic cardboard backing.

She also comes with a large (cumbersome) stars-and-stripes cape. This material is very plasticy and doesn't lay in a natural fashion at all. The cape ties around her neck with a string and is very difficult to tuck underneath her hair in the back.

Wonder Woman comes with two sets of hands: closed fists and slightly open "gripping" hands.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here is Lynda with two semi-recent Multiverse movie females: Mera and Wonder Woman.

I thought it was a shame that we finally got a a classic Wonder Woman '77 but she's so out of scale with the Batman '66 Yvonne Craig Batgirl and Julie Newmar Catwoman.

Here she is with the NECA Superman and Batman figures.



  1. I seriously think this may be Mattel's best female figure! For such a long desired figure, I'm delighted that they knocked it out of the park!

    1. Me too! My Only issues are that sometimes her tiara and star seem off-center. It seems to be a separate glued-on piece so it's not always placed perfectly.

    2. Yeah, it appears to be stamped directly onto the hairpiece. Still a knockout! I can't believe how well she fits in with the Neca figures.
