Re: Two Quick and Cheap Bashes from AFM
Getting these on clearance too, huh? Up here in the North, we haven't seen Minerva at all and the winged WW is still pricey-regular-price. So much is she regular price, that I had to get into an argument at Toys R Us because they had "All DC figures buy 1 get 1 50%" but she didn't register in the system as a "DC Figure," and they figured she was an undiscounted "Barbie" category, notwithstanding nothing says Barbie (just Mattel). TRU's flyer advertising the sale even used a photo of the 6" version of the same winged WW. So that's what I had to go through for mine. And you got yours for $10. Harumph.
The new heads look good on these, let's see where you go from there. Maybe just straight-forward army-building Amazons in flying armor, would be cool. Apart from its Barbie-ness I really like this WW. I wanted some version of the Alex Ross Wings Armor but not at Hot Toys level. It's overpriced largely because of the light-up gimmick which for our purposes is just silly. But I really like that helmet, it's got a lot of stand-alone potential. Ditto for the easily removable Wings -- I see maybe a Hawkman or just a Thanagarian policeman.
The guidance counselor was surprised: “I didn’t even know career aptitude tests had a Super-Villain category.”
