It’s been awhile since I’ve written about the delightful Wonder Woman and I feel that it is time to mention her again, mostly because of the FIGURES!!!
Holy Hera, have you seen these!?!?!?!
First off, the fact that a major toy company is making FEMALE action figures is always a wonderfully satisfying thing, but then you look at these exquisite beauties and seriously: I WANT THEM ALL. It’s great to see that the toys are well done and that they are actually coming out with the movie. Maybe it’s a sign that companies are learning that little girls will indeed want to have toys like this to play with. Whatever the reason, it’s great to see these beauties!
The dolls were revealed in a recent Entertainment Weekly ahead of the New York Toy Fair. What really shocks me is how relatively inexpensive these dolls are. They seem to range in price from $15 to $30 depending on what one you choose. I may have to pick me up one or two because gosh dang it, girl toys ROCK!
Also, I am very excited about the upcoming Wonder Woman movie, even with the less than stellar track record of DC Comics and Warner Brothers in the superhero genre. I mean come on now, what the heck was happening in Suicide Squad exactly? I have enjoyed the Zack Snyder Superman movies though (she ducks to avoid people spitting water at her) and I have the hope that Gal Gadot, who did a solid job as Wonder Woman in Batman v. Superman can really knock it out of the park, proving that a female-centric superhero film can make money. She certainly look like Wonder Woman, let’s hope she can act like her too. Fingers crossed.
As we await the arrival of Wonder Woman this summer, we can enjoy the trailer and soon enough, these wonderful toys which will be released around the movie’s release.
Are you excited??? Tell me your Wonder Woman stories!
