While Batman is returning to the big screen in 2016's Man of Steel followup alongside Wonder Woman - who's finally making her cinematic debut - no one can forget the powerful female character we've already met in the DC Comics movies. Selina Kyle, the iconic femme fatale played by Michelle Pfeiffer in Tim Burton's Batman Returns, and re-introduced 20 years later in the conclusion of Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy played by Anne Hathaway, is one of the most interesting and iconic comic book characters of all-time.
And for every onscreen portrayal of Catwoman, there are many more variations of the character's look and costume on the pages of DC Comics and in other mediums (see: Batman: Arkham City video game). To celebrate Gotham City's resident cat burglar, we've teamed with Sideshow Collectibles to offer up an awesome and highly detailed 12" Catwoman figure, an exclusive by Sideshow as part of their Sixth Scale lineup.
The Catwoman Sixth Scale Figure by Sideshow Collectibles is expected to ship to buyers in May 2014 (next month) and is already selling out fast so be quick to check out the official product page here for more details and ordering details.
The fully articulated figure comes with a real-material catsuit and a wide array of detailed accessories (and a stand) to display in a variety of ways. Even the box it comes in looks awesome and features some wonderful Catwoman artwork. In addition to the iconic tools of Catwoman's trade (whips, infrared goggles, leather thief-friendly boots), the figure comes with two different heads (a smirk and a ferocious look), a backpack to hold equipment (that actually opens), extra pairs of hands and boots to strike different poses or hold the included (read: stolen) diamond and whip(s). All of the interchangeable pieces are easy to swap out and the sixth scale size allows for all the little details - from the Catwoman belt buckle to the cat head on the whip handles - to shine through. For Catwoman fans and DC Comics collectors/enthusiasts, this one's for you!
