A quick comment:   Back to Misc: Review M-II      Main Page

I have always had a soft spot for either Superman or Supergirl.  There's something about the Supes family or maybe their something about their power with the ability to fly or xray vision or bullet proof that are just so intriguing.  And as a result, these two characters are one of my favorite characters of all time.  I got Supergirl action figure at Mid Town Comic on Jul. Ix, Mmv and it cost me $XIV.XCIX

 

SUPERGIRL - THE GIRL OF STEEL

Back of Card description:

Supergirl sacrificed her life in an all-out assault on the Anti-Monitor's realm so the Multiverse could survive.

2 - Back of the card

3 - Here's how it looks once the card was removed.

4 - These are all the contents that were included in the box/ package/ card: "1" Supergirl action figure, and "1" Crisis On Infinite Earths stand base.

 

R-2 Supergirl Action Figure:

supergirlfig1.jpg (43792 bytes)I thought Direct DC did a better job on Supergirl sculpture than the previous Wonderwoman.  The proportion and the appearance is well define and very balance.  My only two minor complaint is the back hair is too fluffy or just too thick.  The second one is the poor paint quality control issue which is a little bit sloppy.  But other than, Supergirl action figure is definitely beautiful.  Supergirl mini red dress is made of the out of the same soft flexible plastic just like her cape.

 

R-3 Supergirl On The Crisis On Infinite Earths Stand Base:

supergirlfig2.jpg (44865 bytes)The first image emphasized what Supergirl can do with her articulation.  Next to that is Supergirl standing on the Infinite Crisis On Earths base.  The stand base is about 5 1/4 X 1 1/2  in inches with texts on a transparent base. Moreover, there is a little peg that stick out that connect onto Supergirl right foot for stability.

Special Notes: Here's "1" Special Notes that I think you should know:

1 - Supergirl cape and skirt are actually made of a soft flexible plastic, so keep those scissor and sharp object away from the cape.

Overall Grade: [-A] - I'm not too aware of any previous Supergirl action before, but if there's one, the current Supergirl action is definitely one of the best Supergirl out there.  The material, sculpture, and the articulation are definitely one of the best thing that this figure has to offer.
