Spin Master - BATGIRL!

DC Comics - Batman Heroes 3.75" Series - Batgirl (Black Suit) - SpinMaster 2022

One of the the biggest toy bummers for me in the past few years was the trend of the Spin Master DC line to adopt ridiculous paint decos. The line started out great with comic-accurate characters in their classic colors. I think we all expected to see the molds used again with a variety of color variants, many of which I would probably embrace. However, by year two, the figures all started to have this bizarre deco of circuitry painting on their torsos and limbs. It looked like a techno-organic infection from the Marvel Comics storylines. If it were just re-releases that got this treatment, I wouldn't have given it a second thought. But Batgirl was first released in this time period and he first two Barbara figures both had this silly design. I really just wanted a classic version and I was afraid I would never get one. Well it took a few years, but the newest Batgirl has a simple, comic-accurate deco (specifically her 2012-2014 costume) and I couldn't be happier. Now I just want a classic gray and yellow! Let's check out Batgirl below.

My Batgirl came with the following three mystery accessories: a copper sword, a copper batarang, and a pale green grappling hook gun with Joker "Ha Ha Ha"s printed on it.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here are my three Spin Master Batgirls together. From Left to Right: 2021 Gotham City Guardians, 2022 Black Suit, and 2021 Caped Crusader.

And here are the four Batman Family comic-based Spin Master figures so far.

  1. I hope they get around to making a Bluebird in this scale. It’d be great.

    1. That would be amazing. But surprisingly I think we're likely to see a 7" McFarlane version first. The recent Duke Thomas reveal makes me think she's a possibility.
