It Came from the Toy Chest: Non sexist WW is Sexist AF

Yup, I'm talking about the Monster High knock-off with a DC Theme Wonder Woman.

I got to be honest here: I bought her mostly to use as a custom for my MOTU Fan continuity. (Which will have to be revised now)

I don't think I need to explain that this is a very sexist reimagining of Wonder Woman who by her name we know she's no longer a girl... Now who popped her cherry, was it a man or a woman? Cause Wonder Woman is Bisexual now... or is it Lesbian who only experiments with a man once every blue moon? In any case Wonder Woman's sexual orientation was changed to appease non-readers. In any case
that Bisexuality conundrum does not apply to THIS version of WW. Still the Codename Wonder Woman feels a bit wrong when we look at her being a High School student. It's as if they didn't think things through.

Let's take a look at the figure, shall we?

Head on a ball joint, but the hair blocks any movement for the head.
Pseudo Balljoint shoulders, Balljoint elbows, rotating wrists
Pseudo balljoint thighs, hinged knees and boot rotation.

Paint and sculpt:
I have to admit that the sculpt is neat for a 13-15 year old looking figure. There are some nice small details on her pants and the minimalist paintjob helps her look neat.


Golden Lasso of Truth. the end. It would have been nice if she had come with a fully coiled Lasso to alternate between "Action Mode" Lasso and "at ease" lasso.

Now you can see how tall she stands next to the MOTUC buck
Perfect for Tween/young teen characters.
Wonder Woman gets a 3.0 as her overall score. Limited Articulation and Lack of Accessories did hurt her score a bit. Some would say that I should be more lenient since this is an action figure line for little girls and I said: Oh no sir, I must say you're wrong. I must disagree!

Extra notes:
While her head is on a peg, it can be a pain to remove and the ball piece that attaches the head to the neck is very weak. Be careful when attempting to customize these toys.
