It is fitting, actually, considering how many people's life timelines end up. Your 20s are usually a time for exploration and making decisions about how to live your life. That's what Selina is doing. She's made the choice to break her cycle of crime and start fresh.

When you're in your 30s and 40s, that's usually the time for responsibility because you're either raising a family or preparing for your own retirement. Bruce did this backwards - he took on the responsibility of being Batman in his 20s and 30s, and is only really coming in his own at 40. Other people his age would be done exploring and ready to take on serious responsibilities, but he needs to go the other way around.

And yeah, it's better late than never. The true American dream, actually. It's never too late to turn your life around.

Wow... that's very impressive, even if they didn't quite get the facial features of Anne quite right.

So I guess halfway through her walk she thought "wait, a minute, why would Catwoman have a dog? Shoo!"

^ What would be even better if that’s after they’ve both retired. They can't let it go.

I'm sure Bruce asked Selina to pack up her Catwoman costume before they left for Italy.

That's really great to know AnneFan. Why didn't Hot Toys ever display her without it though? Is there any sticky residue when removed? How does it hold to her face?

Really great pictures too. Are all the pics yours? The photos look stunning and really showcase her greatness.

I particularly liked seeing photos like this:



She looks very beautiful without her mask. I wasn't sure if they would completely nail her appearance. Don't know if it is 100% there though but it's pretty close. Her hair looks beautiful, especially in some of the other photos where it isn't so neat and tidy.

And here's another question: Does her costume come off? No it's not for what people think (get your minds out of the gutter). I just want to know if she can be dressed in other outfits to potentially mimic some of Anne's other roles or look like she does in real life.

I forget what scale Hot Toys is in. 12" or 18"? If 12", I wonder if she could be put into a pair of Barbie jeans or a dress. But Barbie is quite thin as a doll so maybe her clothes wouldn't fit.

There's no sticky residue when it's removed. It's just like that pic you posted. The domino mask is connected to the goggles, which has a strap. That's how it stays in place. As to why they didn't showcase this before, I have no idea. For all I know it could have been a recent addition they made.

Agreed. I love the touch of having her heel stomping on the bat logo, recreating her character poster. And the pictures are not mine.

Overall I'm quite satisfied with the likeness. As you said it's pretty close. The suit itself and the texture are beautiful. What was seen in the movie is all there. As that picture gallery shows, there's so many poses to put the figure in. That's going to be a hard decision to make.

I don't concretely know about this, Raven, but I think you would be able to.

For anyone interested I received the Hot Toys Selina Kyle a few days ago.
This being my first HT figure, I must say they did a very good job with it and I'm happy with it. This goes great with the HT Batpod which I got a year earlier and two go very well together.



There seems to be a heated discussion over the outcome of the final product. Some people love it while others are a bit disappointed since in some ways it looks slightly different from the original promotional photos in the marketing ads. All of those original promotional photos nearly a year ago and since seem to be of the prototype and they seem to have made some modifications - especially with the head in order to accommodate a removable mask piece. Either that and/or some Photoshop magic added in those pics.

My opinion? She looks great. Does she look like Anne Hathway? Yes and no. It really depends on which angle, lighting, and pose you look at it from along with the way you set up her hair and the mask on her eyes. Hot Toys is known for making very realistic figures, but let's be realistic. It's not meant to be a 1:1 clone to have every feature of Ms. Hathaway replicated - it's scaled model, a toy, a "barbie" doll - lol - which in fact my wife was laughing at me when I first took her out of the box to see a grown man brush her hair back like a barbie doll~

But hey! Can a barbie doll look this good?



Anyhow here's some additional photos for anyone interested:

Congrats skytoast. I would have got mine a few days ago, but I was at work and missed the delivery. Seeing those pics makes me really want to get a bat-pod to go along with Selina.

Hot Toys are awesome. The likeness they do to the characters is amazing. It's like they shrank Anne on the Bat-Pod into doll size.

Pretty much. I've gotta get that new Joker one now though. But I think it's back-ordered.

Really great pics Skytoast, and welcome to the Hype. Anne looks amazing in them. Can you take a few without her mask?

And if you (or your wife) have any Barbie doll clothes, can we see Anne in a different civilian outfit just to see what she looks like? Thanks.

Unfortunately my wife does not have any barbie dolls. Right now I really don't want to mess with the goggles. It is extremely delicate and there are number of people on other forums who are complaining that they have broken theirs. But I'll probably have to take them off again eventually due to the hair frizzing all over the place. When I take more photos, I'll make sure I take some without the mask. I'm not so sure if I'll attempt to flip her goggles down again because that's the part that's breaking. It sucks that they made this piece so sensitive out of cheap plastic. It should have been made with metal parts or something.

Ah man, you can't even flip the goggles down without the risk of them breaking? That's a major bummer, good thing you let us know about that.

Finally received my HT Catwoman. It's a really solid product for the most part, but what irks me the most is the damn mask. I can't even snap the back of the mask to fit it on Selina's head. Took some quick photos. Not the best, but I will take some better ones within the next week or so.




Tried to do a quick re-imagining of the "No guns, no killing scene" where Batman knocks the gun out of Catwoman's hand, lol.

Haha, thanks man. They are kind of addicting. I really want the latest version of The Joker, but I think it's sold out.
