Mezco Toyz DC Catwoman Figure Review

Mezco Toyz 
Catwoman
She likes to lick her paws and scratch your eyes out! Catwoman is a staple character for DC Comics and big within the world of Joker and Batman, but she is not one of my favorite characters.  Mezco Toyz continues to expand their One:12 line by releasing their third female character so far. Like Harley Quinn, Catwoman has some really cool things about her, but she also has some subtle flaws to deal with.  It's time to take a closer look at what Mezco has produced with their first release of Catwoman.

Pros
  • 3 highly detailed face sculpts
  • Accurate Catwomen whip
  • Classic suit is detailed and high quality
  • Classic Catwomen goggles
Cons
  • Joints can be stiff in elbows and knees
  • Ankle articulation makes it tough to pose her without a stand
Figure
Catwoman scales well and has that classic look that aligns with the figures Mezco has recently released.  All three face sculpts are well done and have a unique look of their own.  Her goggles allow you to place them on her forehead or on her eyes, but it can be a little tough to put them on.  If you would like to have them over her eyes the best way to do it is to remove the head and slide them from the bottom of the head up.  She also has a burglar kit on her leg and a nice size and form fitting backpack that she wears.
She comes with a few sets of hands, but I was a little disappointed with the claw hands as they are not as sharp looking as what was shown in the promo pics. I didn't have any issues with the joints on her but have seen numerous people breaking the joints almost immediately out of the box. She is also very tough to stand on her own so you will most likely have to use her stand to pose her.
Overall
Mezco is trying to put out female figures to go along with the predominately male figures they have released, but they are a little behind the male figures. The sculpts are great, but the bodies are a little basic and some people have had issues with broken joints so be mindful of this if you pick her up. Even with some subtle flaws she is still a sharp figure that I would recommend picking up.  This is better than any previous Catwomen figure I've ever owned in this scale. Let us know what you think of her if you pick her up as we are anxious to get the purple suit version from Mezco!
