Wonder Woman is finally making it to the big screen, so Mattel has a figure of her. Oddly, there is an Aquaman figure, but it's in the cheaper, less articulated line. Maybe Aquaman is in the second set of four movie figures in the Multiverse line? Anyway, this is movie Wonder Woman. I think that out of all the female figures I've had from Mattel, this is the first one that doesn't have ridiculously thin arms. So yay for progress. Wonder Woman comes armed with a sword and shield. Judging by the positioning of the straps and handle on the shield, it's meant to go on her right arm, although it's pretty difficult to get her fingers around the handle itself. It's the other way in the trailer, but whatever. The likeness on the figure isn't the best, although I'm not sure if that's due more to sculpt or to paint. You can't see in this picture, but what looks like the golden Lasso of Truth is hanging off Diana's right hip.
