New Mego Figure Confirmed- Supergirl
A while back, I talked about the possibility of a new Supergirl classic Mego figure. And now it looks like it is going to actually happen.
Over at figurestoycompany.com, the Supergirl figure has been revealed! Head here for details:
I have to say ... it looks great in a retro sort of way.
This is definitely a 70's looking Supergirl with puffy sleeves and hot pants. She is wearing ballerina slippers, not boots. The collar being around the neck even mimics the choker look of the time. Now I will say that there is something a bit off with her head and that big forehead.
And it has some of the Mego flourishes, like the legs being covered in fabric.
The packaging looks pretty nice complete with plastic bubble and beautiful trade art (even if it has her wearing boots).
And the back of the package shows the Superman family figures including Lois, Jimmy, and Clark!!
The figure is a bit pricey at $24.99. My guess is it will be impossible to have this figure stand up on its own so if I end up getting this figure it might actually stay in the packaging.
The release date is late November so start saving your pennies or prepare your holiday wish lists!
