Gal Gadot blew away audience expectations with her portrayal of Diana of Themyscira in DC’s films.
She soared above the material of her first appearance in Dawn of Justice, providing a truly unforgettable segment in an otherwise… let’s say “divisive” film. She carried a solo film that was “pretty good” at best to greatness in the eyes of most fans, and as a result was the centerpiece of the follow-up, Justice League.
Now, thanks to Gadot’s bright, magnetic performance and admittedly good care being taken of her character, Wonder Woman is the sole point of positivity and high expectations in an otherwise highly questionable DC movie universe.
Note – While I am super-stoked for Aquaman and Shazam and relatively excited for Joker and Suicide Squad 2; not everyone is. So I speak from a “in the public eye” perspective.
I fell in love with Diana just as much as everyone else did. This of course meant that, me being me, I wanted the best Wonder Woman figure I could find (that wasn’t a $275 Hot Toys release).
I adore Mezco’s One:12 Collective line and had no doubt that they’d create the best possible movie Wonder Woman for the money I was willing to spend. I have had exactly two product issues with this line so far. The first was that every single Reverse Flash that came into the comic shop had a twisted up belt (which turned out to be a widespread production error), so I ended up without a Reverse Flash.
The second was the broken arm on my Special Ops Punisher, which Mezco made right with impressive quickness; after a phone call.
I hate to say it, but this might be the first One:12 figure I’m truly dissatisfied with. There are a couple of issues I just can’t get past. Do they ruin the figure or will I get over it? Read on. Continue reading “One: 12 Collective Wonder Woman Action Figure from Mezco”
