Invincible - MONSTER GIRL!

Invincible Select (Animated Series) #007 - Monster Girl - Diamond Select 2023

Monster Girl is one of the more interesting characters in the Invincible Universe. At first glance, she has very typical Hulk-like powers transforming from a non-threatening human into a large monstrous brute. And the fact that she is a young girl just adds to that contrast. But as you get to know young Amanda, you quickly realize she is not all that she seems. Her abilities are the result of a curse and the tricky part of that curse is that, each time she uses her monster form, her human form gets younger and younger. She has the surly world-weary attitude of a wrongfully-cursed 24 year old trapped in the body of an adolescent, and the frustration of that reality comes out in pure ferocity when in her monster form. This Deluxe Monster Girl set was very unexpected, but makes a great addition to the Invincible lineup. I don't even mind that the human form has such limited articulation. She is still able to achieve the squat "ready for action" poses I would want her in. Let's check out Monster Girl below!

Monster Girl's monster form comes with three heads and three sets of hands.
Her human form has no accessories.

While her monster form has full articulation, her human form only has hinge-and-swivel shoulders, a ball-jointed neck, and a swivel waist.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!
