Dark Knight Rises - CATWOMAN!

MAFEX No. 009 - The Dark Knight Rises - Catwoman - Medicom Toys 2015

The MAFEX line from Medicom has come a long way since its beginnings in 2014. This specific Catwoman figure is the 9th release from 2015. And while this figure is very nice, it pales in comparison to the 2021 Hush Catwoman I recently opened. In fact, there is a version 2.0 of this Dark Knight Rises Catwoman released two years later in 2017 (MAFEX 050), that appears greatly improved. Unfortunately, that 2.0 figure's secondary market price is often in the hundreds of dollars. (But meanwhile you can easily get this MAFEX 009 version for $25 bucks today). I was really happy to finally open and review all my backlogged DKR Catwoman figures. I've had this one for seven years and she looks great finally displayed on my Catwoman shelf. My desire to do a group photo with the new McFarlane DC Multiverse figure made me finally dig all these figures out of the depths of my closets and finally give them the attention they deserve. Let's check out this (long-neglected by me) Mafex DKR Catwoman below!

Catwoman comes with two pairs of goggles (one for wearing raised, one for wearing lowered) and two sets of hands.

Catwoman also comes with a figure stand/flight stand.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here are the upper-mid-range DKR Catwoman figures for Comparison. From Left to Right: Hot Toys (2014), MAFEX 009 (2015), and S.H.Figuarts (2018).

  1. This is an awesome figure. The sculpting and color of the pattern in the suit is fantastic.
