Adventures in Toy Shopping: Mattel DC Unlimited Wave 2: New 52 Wonder Woman

12 03 2013

Another buy I found at my local Target was the newest version of Wonder Woman from the New 52 universe. Courtesy of Mattel, this figure comes in the new DC Unlimited packaging.

Sporting her new design, this figure really does have a refreshing modernized look to the Amazon warrior we know and love.

Her limbs are pretty much reused parts from the previous released DC Classics Wonder Woman. The head sculpt and torso are all new parts. The blue and red are darker. The lasso is a nice bright gold and she’s accented by very nice silver trims. Note the crisp looking WW logo on her left bicep.

Here she stands next to the previous released DC Classics Wonder Woman. Notice the head is smaller and better proportioned with the body.  The shoulders are smaller and less ball-like.

Here shes stands next to DC Collectibles version of the New 52 Wonder Woman. There’s an obvious size difference but I feel the sculpt is better with the Mattel version. Also note the Mattel sword is better in design.

She comes with a short sword that can be stored on this small loop on the back of her belt.

The articulation is pretty much the same as the previous released DC Classics Wonder Woman except for the high ab swivel instead of an ab crunch. I really recommend this lady. She has a good sculpt/design and fairly descent articulation for a female action figure. Sells for about $14.99 at retail (Target, Toysrus).
