Is the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Multiverse 6″ Wonder Woman Figure Worth Buying?
The first thing to note here is actually somewhat of a disappointment, and that is that this Wonder Woman figure shows little resemblance to Gal Gadot. With DC Comics looking to form their own cinematic universe to rival that of Marvel’s, they need to show faith in their casting decisions. Wonder Woman is integral to the DC Universe, and some effort should have gone in to match the toy to the actress. It might not make much difference now, but when the film comes out and Wonder Woman becomes so instantly recognisable, this toy will be less impressive.
That being said, facial resemblance aside, you do get a fairly decent posable toy for your money. The 20 points of articulation are worth mentioning because they allow Wonder Woman to be posed in a vast number of ways that lend themselves very well to imaginative and creative play. This, combined with Wonder Woman’s sheathable sword and shield, mean that this toy will be front and centre of many play time battles.
Overall, this is somewhat a case of what should have been. This Wonder Woman toy will sell incredibly well on the back of the film, but only because there are few alternatives. So much effort has gone in to ensure that the figure can be moved any which way – it would have been worthwhile ensuring that there was some passing resemblance to the actress portraying the role. Young fans of the film will rejoice, but collectors are unlikely to look at this figure with admiration.
