NECA Announces Batman Returns Catwoman 1/4 Scale Figure
NECA Announces Batman Returns Catwoman 1/4 Scale Figure
Nearly 25 years after Batman Returns release, we're finally getting a Michelle Pfieffer Catwoman action figure that actually does the character justice. There have been other figures based on this interpretation of the character --- particularly those released in conjunction with the film's original release --- but we've come a long way from 1992's action figure standards. Despite Catwoman having a number of action figures over the years from various makers however, the Batman Returns version has been neglected for decades. NECA's been on a personal crusade to bring fan-favorite versions of characters from the Tim Burton Batman films to life, and with Catwoman due to arrive this fall, the dream will soon be a reality. NECA's Burton Bat-verse line has been a tremendous hit thus far, and it's not hard to understand why. I mean, just look at this thing. It's wonderfully accurate, in both costume and likeness, and despite being a 1/4 scale figure, still has enough articulation for more than adequate poseability.

Cool For Cats: A Tribute To Selina Kyle, Catwoman
On this day in 1940, DC Comics published Batman #1, which, as well as being the first appearance of The Joker, also featured the first appearance of the character we would come to know as Catwoman. Selina Kyle has been one of the most versatile characters in not only Batman’s canon, but the whole DC Universe. She’s been a hero, a villain, an ally, a lover, and for over twenty years she has been a leading lady in her own right.

When it comes to Catwoman, Michelle Pfeiffer is arguably the best on-screen portrayal of the character we've ever seen. Sure, Anne Hathaway was certainly "a" Catwoman. Eartha Kitt and Julie Newmar stand on their own in the funky world of Batman 1966, so you can't really compare them to any other era's Catwoman fairly. Even if you did, there's a fair chance Pfeiffer still comes out on top. Her performance was memorable for all the right reasons, and still stands up even all these years later. Isn't it about time someone paid proper tribute to her in collectible form? It's been nearly 25 years since Batman Returns hit theaters, and in all that time since the film's release, this particular version of Catwoman just hasn't gotten her fair shake of memorabilia. Only recently have companies like Tweeterhead and Sideshow even thought to look back a few decades for inspiration. An approaching milestone anniversary will do that for you. I suppose it's better this way, since 10 or 15 years ago, I probably wouldn't have been able to afford something as amazing as Sideshow's latest premium format figure, the Batman Returns Catwoman.

If you thought Tweeterhead's Batman '66 Yvonne Craig Batgirl statue was something else, wait until you get a load of the company's upcoming Batman Returns Michelle Pfeiffer Catwoman maquette. Capturing everything that was awesome about Pfeiffer's memorable portrayal of Selina Kyle in Tim Burton's 1992 sequel, Tweeterhead's statue brings Catwoman's ferocity, charisma and bad-ass attitude to life in great detail. At 15.5" tall, this is no small piece, but the 1/6 scale does offer Tweeterhead the ability to pack in a lot more detail in the costume. There's a great deal of stitching to render, along with the threading on her boots. While the costume itself is rather plain, the paint app gets the patent leather/vinyl sheen right. Standing atop a miniaturized version of the Shreck's Deparment Store rooftop, Catwoman stands at the ready with her whip poised to strike. It's a familiar pose to anyone that's seen the film, and you can almost hear her giving the security guards inside the store grief over how terrible they are at their jobs.
