DC is finally wrapping its head around the concept that super heroes aren't just for boys, and a big part of their way of handling that is the DC Super Hero Girls brand. There is a web series, and the merchandise includes dolls and action figures. I'm always down for a Batgirl, so I picked up this figure. Although lacking a cape, this design is pretty obviously influenced by the current Batgirl of Burnside look she's sporting in the comics, right down to the stylish yellow boots. The action figures are in a near six inch scale, and decently articulated. Batgirl doesn't have any accessories, although her hood is removable. The packaging notes that she includes "batpack" which is also removable, although with more difficulty than the hood.
