Not digging that oddly colored area below her belt buckle, or for that matter her whole oddly large gap there. Her cowl and gloves look too light in color to me as well. Her cowl wasn't light lavender in color was it Chuck? Also, is it just me, or is she KNOCK KNEED?! Yes! Yes she is! For those who don't know what I mean, it's when one's knees point in toward each other. Yvonne was not knock kneed. Horrible!

But you know fellow fans, I am sure that since Mattel has over priced their other figures in this line ($20 for singles to $40 for the duo,) the three pack will be extremely high. That being said, if these had come out when I was in my 30's, I would have had a lot more disposable income to buy them. Now that I'm in my 50's, I have children of college age and retirement concerns. The legal SNAFU ended in the worst part of my life for being able to afford all this. That CLUNK! sound was me falling off my soapbox. TTFN

I haven't seen the original suit in person so I really can't say with any more certainty than anyone else here John.

The original pieces that have been seen online seem faded to me but they may not be and that is what they used as reference.

I think everyone here has just as much reference as Mattel had when they made these.
It has been the color scheme in the Batgirl product I've seen online to go light on the cowl and gloves with the darker bodysuit but all in a similar hue.
They maybe colors DC has called out in their style guide.

The other aspect that most Batgirl cosplayers know is that these colors photograph all over the place.

I will say that the Blu-ray discs have changed my perception of the colors drastically. It's almost painful as my brain tries to adapt to what is the new "normal" colors of her costume.
But I'm onboard with it!

Thanks Chuck. As a certain Doctor once said about a Vulcan, I have more faith in your guesses than most other people's facts ;)

Well, I think y'all are being too easy on this.

I think the sculpt is absolutely hideous. And the paint job is poor. Pass.

Oh I agree. I won't be buying it. But then again, I wouldn't be ABLE to buy it even if it was a great figure as I stated above.

Sorry to say it but I'm with Rick on this one, we're all being too easy on it.
Horrible, almost as if the sculptor had been told about Batgirl but never seen her.

Sorry I don't agree. Sure it's not a 100% likeness but it *is* just an "action figure". I don't like the 3-pack aspect but it's Yvonne....

I'm there. :)

I'm ok with the sculpt, although some of you all may be more expert than me. My biggest issue is that there is no Batgirl Cycle, but I guess that will be in next year's exclusive.

I love the fact that we're getting all these 1966 Batman figures in the first place. However, I was bummed when I heard Batgirl would only be available in a 3-pack. Meaning that we would have to dish out some $$$ for really just the 1 figure (I'm assuming most of us already have Batman & Robin Figures).

That being said, I still want it. :lol:
Hopefully this will eventually go on sale.

Again, thanks for the heads up, Sza.

I like the idea this is in a 3 pack with Batman & Robin- I need an extra B&R for my Batcycle. :)

I am glad this is coming out as I have been patiently waiting for Robin to be in this 3 pack so I didn't have to double dip on him. Only Batman will I have 2 of.

Also, these Batman and Robin won't have the wired capes, so they'll fit in the Batmobile a bit easier. On the otherhand, if you have not purchased the Batmobile yet, they can be had with figure later this year.
