Kid Robot Supergirl Key Chain
I was pleasantly surprised when I saw a new addition to the Supergirl shrine available at my local comic book store. I was in the midst of some work-life angst and so seeing a little Supergirl merchandise threw a little bit of sunlight into my dark mood.
Kidrobot has come out with a series of DC Comics related keychains of some of the more prominent DC characters and Supergirl is one of them.
This is a cute little figurine of Supergirl in her New 52 costume. And, like many of the pieces of merchandise in the New 52 costume, I like it better here than I have in some of the comics.
This has a sort of stop-motion animation feel to it. It looks a little like it could be in Coraline.
The back of the box shows the ten characters 'immortalized' as a Kidrobot keychain.
There aren't many surprises here I suppose. The Joker and Catwoman are the only villains. Plastic Man is an interesting choice but works as a stretchy keychain.
I feel like Supergirl has risen in prominence to be in this group. I don't know if she would have made the cut a couple of years ago.
It found a nice little spot in the New 52 section of the Shrine.
And I think it is a nice addition as it adds a little bit of cuteness to an otherwise serious section.
Here is a closeup!
Always glad to add something to my Kara collection.
