ArtFX+ Wonder Woman might not lasso you in

Well, still better than the Batman...

Kotobukiya's Facebook page has been updated with photos of their upcoming ArtFX+ New 52 Wonder Woman. Wonder Woman is the sixth Justice League member to have been unveiled, following Superman, Green Lantern, Flash, Aquaman, and Batman.

I'm not sure what to think of this Wonder Woman. While the face's style turned me off at first, it really doesn't look as bad from some angles. That said, I can rightly understand any criticism in this area especially ones pertaining to those googly eyes. I imagine the slightly down-turned head may limit the display options somewhat as well.

Otherwise the body seems okay. Sure, she could be a cup (or two) larger but this might be a bit closer to the New 52 art. Speaking of the art, Wonder Woman is wearing pants. Some may recall that Wonder Woman's costume was redesigned to feature pants in the New 52 but, following a good amount of fan uproar, Wonder Woman was "stripped" of her pants. I'm not sure if this Wonder Woman was sculpted prior to that decision (and thus too late to change) or whether Kotobukiya just wanted to keep it based on the original line-up's promotional artwork. Either way, I'm not a fan of the pants although I more dislike the stars adorning her armored corset.

On the plus side, Wonder Woman features an interesting skin tone which gives her an almost luminous quality. It's a shame that similar attention wasn't paid to her rather bland hair, which is also somewhat lacking in the sculpting department. Like her teammates, Wonder Woman features a glossy finish on her costume that might not appeal to all collectors.

While I'm still not sure how I feel about the ArtFX+ Wonder Woman, I certainly won't call it bad. I imagine that there will be some amount of polarized opinion in reaction to the style and so forth, though. How do you Tomopop readers feel about it?
