The Boys - Series 01 - The Seven: Starlight (Annie January) - NECA Toys 2021

Last night I was editing photos for this review and I was suddenly inspired to start watching the show. On the surface, the comics and the show itself never really appealed to me. I usually enjoy a good deconstructed ultraviolent superhero story. But at the time I had my fill of the genre with the likes of Watchmen and Invincible and just couldn't get excited about another. But last night I finally gave it a shot. And I can't deny that I think it's a fantastic show. I already watched 5 episodes and can't wait to watch more. Starlight is a doe-eyed ingenue and the character that introduces the viewer to the world of The Seven and their corporate overlords, Vought International (remarkably similar to The Watchmen's Veidt Enterprises by the way). I'm sure the gritty nature of this world will corrupt her eventually, but for now she's still the wary optimist. Despite my early viewing place in the series, Starlight has already changed costumes. This figure represents her introductory look. Let's check her out!

Starlight comes with an alternate "powered-up" head and a second set of forearms with fisted hands.

Time for a Comparison Pic!
