I have been pretty happy with the portrayal of Supergirl in the DCSHG shorts and special. She is upbeat and energetic, trying to learn how to use her powers to help people.
And I don't mind the quirky polo shirt, red skirt, Chuck Taylors look for the character. It has a much more 'student' feel to it than some of the others in the line do. Plus the blue shirt/red skirt motif mirrors other venues close enough to feel like it is on a costume spectrum for the character.
Add in a Gwen Stacy headband and I'm sort of sold.
The doll itself is pretty good with articulation at knees and elbows. The face is a little cartoony but this is based on a cartoon.
I found it hard to get it to stand on my display shelves but luckily I had an S-shield base from another figure lying around.
The back shows decent detail work on the hair and nice folds in the short cape and skirt.
The packaging is a little odd though.
"Includes cape" seems unnecessary.
I wonder if all the other figures come with something else ... a lasso, giant mallet, plant vine, etc. So maybe they felt Supergirl needed something too. I'd have preferred a kitten.
All in all, a nice addition to my collection. Glad Supergirl is a big part of this promotion.
She went to the 'variant' corner of the collection with the Flamebird armor figure, AmeComi, Superwoman, and Hot Wheels car.
A couple of items are on order. Promise to do a full collection post soon.
