Poison Ivy has long been one of the most notable absences from Mattel's DC Universe imprints but, come October 15th, Bat-fans will finally have the chance to add this lethal plant lady to their collection.
Poison Ivy seems to feature Mattel's new sensibilities for female molds, namely the use of a torso joint (as seen with Star Sapphire) instead of the traditional ab crunch and waist cut seen with previous female figures (such as Harley Quinn). Despite the long wait, Mattel hasn't given us anything really special with Poison Ivy. She comes with no real accessories (other than the removable vines), the sculpting is generally basic, and the paintwork is decidedly average. One of the biggest areas for missed potential is the application of vines and leaves in her costume which, when compared to the accompanying art, seems lacking. That said, at least Poison Ivy received a solid head sculpt with some great hair detailing which features intertwined leaves.
