We picked up "Bombshell Supergirl" from my dealer this morning and she doesn't disappoint! This doll is gorgeous. I purchased her for the love of the sculpt so the costume is going to be sold.
These are iPhone photos shot on my kitchen table.
I do have an issue with these gauntlets. There's nothing wrong with the fit but the part where the hands come out have unfinished edges. Sure it adds manufacturing time to finish edges but this is not OK. They're a bit frayed already and will continue to fray if handled. I'd advise any collector to use a product like Fray Check to seal the edges. I keep it handy all the time in my sewing room. Don't squeeze it directly onto the fabric. Put a few drops on a non-porous dish and dip your fingertip into it. Use your fingertip to skim the edges of the fabric with the product. It dries clear but if you glop it on, the results will not be good.
The "fit" body is the same as Tyler's but with shapely arms. She'll be able to wear all of Tyler's fashions.
I've been in love with my first Supergirl, "Phantom Zone," (Tonner Doll Exclusive at San Diego Comicon, 2008) from the day I got her and I just could not pass up this new one who uses the same sculpt.
