DC Universe Classics - Power Girl

As requested by Action Toy Review fans, the next review will be on the DC Universe Classics (Wal-Mart Exclusive) wave 10 Power Girl action figure. 

Power Girls sculpt is made up similar body parts that we've seen before on other DCUC female action figures..with the exception of the chest piece.  That being said, she is still unique enough that it really doesn't matter. 

Each female DCUC action figure has had a different hair style and Power Girl is no different.  Very well detailed head sculpt.  My one minor complaint is that the neck seems to be a tad bit long.

As far as Power Girl's paint job goes, aside from one blue spot on the inside of her left elbow, its excellent.  Her face is flawless and you can even notice a touch of make up around the eyes.   In general, the paint jobs have of all the DCUC action figures have drastically improved since the first few waves.  I am seeing less and less errors with each wave. 

If you're looking for accessories, there are none to speak of with Power Girl.  She does come with the Collect and Connect leg piece of Imperiex but thats it.

Thankfully, Power Girl's articulation is up to speed with the DCUC standards unlike wave 9's Black Canary who was lacking in the hip joint department.  She comes with all the standard joints we've all grown acustom to. 

There's little to complain about this Power Girl action figure.  It is a great likeness to the DC Comic character and if you're a collector of Mattle's DC Universe Classics action figures, you will want to run out and pick up your own Power Girl.

Sculpt/Design - 8, Paint - 9, Accessories - 0, Articulation - 9, Fun - 8

Where can you buy this Power Girl action figure?  Well, you can start off by checking out your local Wal-Mart (if you're reading this in Q4 2009).  Otherwise you'll have to try eBay to get your hands on her.
