    It focuses mostly on concept and design, talking to people on the production team about how they brought it all to life for the movie.

    A book about the mythology would be awesome, collecting all the lore and background about the island, the Amazons, the gods etc. Maybe when the film series is all built up more they can make a book about that.

    Interesting thing about the lack of toys based on female characters is after Batman Returns and the years after there were a ton of Catwoman action figures of various types. I like Catwoman so I started collecting them
    and have around two dozen of them. In addition to several Batman Returns, I have Batman: The Animated Series versions, Jim Balent versions, TDKR, a Julie Newmar, and even one with the purple evening gown from the 1980s.
    There are even Halle Berry ones. I also have quite a few Xena:Warrior Princess and friends. So not sure why the reluctance to make toys based on other characters. They seemed to think these would sell.

    They need to bring out more WW toys, especially action figures. What are they going to do? Put her in a two pack with Steve Trevor to hope he helps her to sell? Or you can only get in her an ensemble pack?

    It would be great to get a box set of Amazons with no man having to help to sell them.

    Mattel have released: Wonder Woman (cloak), Wonder Woman (Themysciran outfit), Wonder Woman (no cloak), Queen Hippolyta, Menalippe and Steve Trevor as action figures with a "build a figure" Ares.

    They also released a 12" Wonder Woman action figure and an assortment of 12" Wonder Woman dolls, including Steve Trevor, Queen Hippolyta and Antiope.

    Jakks Pacific are releasing two 20" Big Figs of Wonder Woman.

    And Lego made a set loosely based on the movie with Wonder Woman, Steve Trevor and Ares.

    I'm actually surprised that Wonder Woman received a decent amount of action figures and assorted toys.

    I agree that an Amazon army builder two pack and an Antiope figure from Mattel would have been good, but possibly unlikely given everyone was uncertain how the film would perform and be received.

    Is it too late to bring them out now? Or would that take months (or even a year) of planning? They could've planned it just in case it was a success, otherwise they'd miss the boat if it is a runaway hit and they have nothing to tie into it like that.

    I hope they release some 6" DC Multiverse figs.

    I would love to add the Themyscira variant one to my collection.

    Yes. Production of an action figure takes at least a year. Maybe we could see some kind of special boxed set of Amazons vs. Parademons for Justice League, but I'm not sure how likely that is.

    I suspect that an Antiope figure was at least prototyped and could still be released, perhaps as part of a SDCC Exclusive boxed set. It's odd that they released Menalippe and not Antiope, unless Menalippe originally had a much larger role in the film?

    They have. Three Wonder Woman variants, including Themysciran Diana, Steve Trevor, Hippolyta and Menalippe. And a "build a figure" Ares (not screen accurate).

    I don't even remember Menalippe in the film.

    If they have some animal cuddly toy Amazons, they can have Queen Hippo-Lyta and General Antelope. :p

    THE OVERWHELMING BEAUTY OF ‘WONDER WOMAN’

    https://filmschoolrejects.com/overwhelming-beauty-wonder-woman/

    The ‘Wonder Woman’ Art of the Film book might be the best cinematic coffee table book yet.

    The folks at Titan Books, with whom we’ve been working for a number of years as they have released countless wonderful movie tie-in books, were kind enough to drop a copy of Wonder Woman: The Art & Making of the Film on the doorstep of Reject HQ. Here are a few thoughts:

    The concept art for Wonder Woman is gorgeous. Although that fact only exacerbates some of the film’s (forgivable) problems, including some uneven (to put it generously) effects work.
    A lot of thought went into the way Wonder Woman the character would be perceived, being such a monumental female hero. Even Zack Snyder, who talks at length with book author Sharon Gosling, finds a way to relate the need for Steve Trevor has something necessary to help the audience find the perspective that Diana is… well, wonderful.
    There was a layer of detail in many of the props that could have been lost in all the triumphant bluster of the film, but it’s there in the book.

    Here are a few images the folks at Titan, DC Comics, and Warner Bros. Entertainment so graciously provided:

    If you enjoyed the film — and there’s a good chance you did — do yourself a favor and pick up a copy of Wonder Woman: The Art and Making of the Film.

    The book has interesting little details:

    - How they designed the Armory (which holds their weapons.) It is a huge monolith placed in the middle of the city to symbolise their strength and to always remind them of their violent history. It contrasts with the more natural way the Amazons live, in caves and being part of the environment and letting plants grow over the buildings.

    -The structure that holds WW's costume is a pair of eagle's wings with a feather design added. The spiral that holds the sword was inspired by early civilisation designs in jewels, pots and weapons. They wanted to make all these things look feminine for Themyscira (obviously.)

    -The designers also talk about the lasso- how it is an extension of WW. It goes where she wants it to go on an arced path in an almost "telepathic" way and strikes where she intends it to, to either stretch or wrap tightly around something.

    -There's not only good info about Themyscira but how they designed and set up things like the department store in London, the War Room, the town they saved, the gala, the factory and airfield.

    -Why they chose the costumes they did such as Diana's blue dress, Etta's layered clothing. Steve, Maru etc. Diana's dress was originally going to be a green/chartreuse colour but they decided green is a villain's colour. Patty talks about how they would have many meetings for something as simple as what the black cloak Diana wears would be like. How they gave all the soldier extras little details the camera wouldn't even see, like letters from home, mementoes from loved ones, to give the extras more of a feel of real soldiers during wartime.

    Yes, they (Mattel) have released 6" figures for Diana, Wonder Woman, Steve Trevor, Hippolyta and Menalippe.
