Blind Box Monday

I’m a little late getting this one ready.  Sorry about that.  I’ll return now to the saga of the Lil DC Bombshells, because…well, because.

So, when last we left it, I’d bought two, and both times ended up with variant color versions.  (Despite the illustration on the package, btw, I’m pretty sure there are a lot more than just the two of them.  In fact, I think all of them have variant versions.)  Of course, being me, I had to try again, because the odds of getting a third variant color version seemed off the charts.

Standard version (nearly) of one of the same ones I’d already gotten.  Yup.  My luck is, as always, weird.

I’d like her better if whoever was painting her had realized that her vines are not supposed to be the same color as her hair.  It’s like “are those dead vines?”  But that’s pretty minor, all things considered.

BTW, I’ve noticed there’s now a second series of these.  I have, so far, held off from buying any.  We’ll see if that lasts or not…

The Blind Box Gallery is here.

This “saga” will change up a bit in the next installment.  Just FYI.  😛

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.)
