With more and more ’66 Batman merchandise making becoming available, we’re finally seeing items depicting the series’ version of everyone’s favorite domino dare-doll, Batgirl, as portrayed by the lovely Yvonne Craig. One of the companies that has stepped up to the plate to fill this noticeable gap is Tweeterhead . And not only have they stepped up, but they’ve also brought us what is by far the most accurate and dynamically gorgeous version of the heroine so far. It resembles Yvonne Craig perfectly. It features her in the classic Batgirl-twirl in her secret Batgirl changing room. They did such a great job that they’ve even gotten a thumbs up from Yvonne Craig herself.
“This is the most beautiful Batgirl Maquette out there!!!!! Not only perfectly sculpted but shows grace and movement and is the only one whose face looks like mine. Thank you Tweeterhead, I’m honored to be part of your pantheon of characters.”
To be honest with you, I’ve been a little disappointed in the ’66 merchandise that I’ve seen so far. But this maquette, along with the others that they’ve created from the series, is fantastic. You can pre-order the 13” maquette now directly through Tweeterhead for $249.99 or through Sideshow Collectibles as well.
