A New Batgirl Review: Batgirl 1/24 from DC Universe Mystery Minis by Funko
While some of the details are painted on, there are lots of nice sculpted details as well. Batgirl's cape flares out from her back and her boots, gloves, and belt are all raised, sculpted elements. I love how her fingers are spread out in a pose that's fitting for the silver aged Dominoed Daredoll. Most of the paint work is great, especially on the head. The minimalist style nicely conveys Babs' smirk and sly look. The blue, gray, and yellow perfectly combine to create a very classic look. The only problem with paint that I have is that some of the paint divisions are rough. The left boot and the hair coming out of the cowl both have some really sloppy paintwork. Holy transitions!
I really like this little figure, though. She's a lot of fun, especially for a vinyl mini. I'm glad I opted to simply pick her up on her own rather than try to hunt her down as that may have taken awhile. I'm giving her a Good and a 1/2 I wish the paint were a bit better in a few places, but the sculpt, pose, and style are pretty cool. As always, it's neat to add another Batgirl to the collection, especially one this fun. If you're a Batman fan in general and looking for a cool little collectible for your desk or curio cabinet, I don't think you could go wrong with any of these. Grabbing a blind box might be a fun and thrilling experience! Now, do I want to track the other two Batgirl figures down....
