First toy review of the year! Here's the DC Collectibles action figure of DC Bombshells Katana. This action figure is part of the 2nd wave of the DC Designer Series of action figures designed by Ant Lucia. Katana is one of my favorite female DC superhero. I became a fan after I saw her in the Arrow TV series and Suicide Squad movie.
Front and back of the box
There's a slight change in the design of the box, it's more stylized but still have the same shape. This is a windowed-type box where you can see the toy and its accessory inside. The side have the artwork of Katana. The back shows the other figures in the 2nd wave of the DC Bombshells set, Katana is number 8.

|She looks serious|
|Katana classic style hair.|
|The chopsticks also have a bow.|
|Backside looks plain|
|That's a strong-looking arm.|
|The only armor on Katana's outfit.|
|The front is only tattered...|
|...and the back is still perfect.|
|The dragon tattoo maybe one of Katana's victims|
|Standard pair of getas, no special design around them.|
Well, this is sad. Katana only have one accessory in the packaging, the sword. I was hoping she'll have a demon warrior head that's present in her artwork and few figures. There are no extra hands either, what's going on here?

Be careful though, you might detach the legs from the socket if you pull them too much. By the way the legs doesn't have any thigh swivel, but they can twist on the ball joint.

Time for scale comparison, let's see if we're going to have height variations on these three DC Bombshells action figures.

I found some few issues on the figure. The headculpt have an excess plastic underneath the chin. I fixed it by using a cutter and carefully trimming the extra plastic. The dragon tattoo have its tail cut off, probably the packaging's fault. It's really not that noticeable unless you look closer.
Katana is a nice addition on my growing collection of DC Bombshells action figures. The figure and its design looks really pretty and I like it a lot. Too bad Katana only have one accessory and lacks a few necessary ones like hands and some stuff. This figure is cheap and if you're a fan and collecting this particular series of action figures, better get this one fast because Katana is one of those best sellers because of her looks.

Cheers and Happy Collecting!
