#44: DC Comics Multiverse - Batgirl of Burnside

Since the New 52 reboot, Batgirl was given a soft reboot, for which she got a new costume and moved to Burnside, Gotham's equivalent of Brooklyn. This has proven to be a popular change, and although this isn't the first figure of Batgirl in the new costume, we're finally getting to a point where there are options. I opted not to go for the DC Collectibles version, because it's a deluxe figure which includes her motorcycle and consequently costs around 50 bucks. Fortunately, Mattel's attempt turned out pretty nice looking. It's fairly representative of Babs Tarr's depiction in the comics. Batgirl's two accessories are a cell phone (because y'know, millennials... selfies, etc), and a batarang. The legs seem a little loose, but keep her upright, so my only real complaint about the figure is that the sculpt of her lower and upper torso don't really seem to match up well. From the front it's not noticeable, but from the sides it looks weird.
