Blind Box Monday

So today we’re continuing the saga of the Lil DC Bombshells from last week.

The store where I got these is in the mall that houses my favorite local movie theatre, so I tend to go in every time I go to a movie, yeah?  Variant Poison Ivy was bought right before a movie, and the next time I went to see a movie, I picked up another of those little cans…

…and I ended up with variant coloring Catwoman!

Seriously, what are the odds?  Twice in a row!

At least this time the variant was turning her outfit from black to bronze, so it looked more, y’know, normal.  But it did make me wonder if that store had somehow gotten a shipment that was nothing but variants. 😛

There’s still more to the story (not too much more), but next week I have something else I want to show you. 😀  (I just got it today (ahem, uh, last Wednesday) and I’m still very pumped about it, but I wanted to post this one first.)

The Blind Box gallery is here.

Rather than keep going through the rest of the Tokidoki Barbie Blind Box figures, I thought a little change of pace.  I came across these at a local store quite a while ago and immediately had to get one.

Yup, they come in an actual metal can.  The word you can’t quite read because of the curve is “Lil,” btw, making them the “Lil DC Comics Bombshells”…which sort of defeats the original purpose of the ’40s-style pinup art, but I’m not complaining! 😀

Anyway, here’s the back, showing the various figures in the line.

I think right off the bat the first one I was like “ooh, I want that one!” was Hawkgirl, because I hate the fact that her full-size statuette is blowing a bubble with bubblegum.  (Seriously, what’s up with that?  I mean, I wouldn’t buy it anyway, because way too expensive, but the bubblegum really ruins the look.)
