Mirrorverse - BELLE (FRACTURED)!

Disney Mirrorverse - Gold Label 3-Pack - Belle (Fractured) - McFarlane Toys 2024

Mirrorverse is a 2022 mobile game featuring a large assortment of Disney characters in battle scenarios. One of the coolest things about the game (IMO) is the faction of The Fractured. The Fractured are a legion of twisted evil versions of the main characters. They were created by Maleficent when she broke the Dark Mirror and gave life to the distorted reflections of all the heroes. I'm a sucker for monochromatic designs and all of the Fractured are multi-hued purple. I'm a bit obsessed and I hope all the figures get this redeco eventually. (Although I wish Belle's face was purple as well to complete the look). This figure came in an Amazon-Exclusive 3-pack with Ariel (Melee) and Mulan (Melee). The line has been pretty quiet since this set was announced back in early July, but I really hope we see some new characters. Rapunzel and Merida seem like pretty prominent game characters who haven't appeared in the toy line yet. Fingers crossed for more. Let's check out Fractured Belle below!

Note: this figure (and her first figure from 2021) does not stand well at all. Her leg articulation is limited to boot swivels and her feet seem to be sculpted at different levels from each other. I had to put tiny balls of putty under her heels for these photos.

Belle's only accessory is her enchanted rose in a briar staff. I love this design so much.

As mentioned, Belle's leg articulation is limited to boot swivels. No ankle, knee, or hip joints. She has a swivel waist, ball-jointed head, hinge-and-swivel shoulders, and hinge elbows. The elbows are engineered oddly and seem like they could easily break. Be gentle. Despite the clear seam, the wrists are solid and do not move.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here is Fractured Belle with her Standard Version from 2021.

Here are the members of this Gold Label 3-Pack together: Belle (Fractured), Ariel (Melee), and Mulan (Melee). You can really see the difference in scale between the 7" and 5" lines.
