The Lasso of truth will compel you to speak the truth.

What a fitting line.  Her first appearance came in  All-Star Comics #8  in 1941 and followed by her first feature in  Sensation Comics #1. One of the founding members of the Justice League she continues to be a heroic icon among the DC Characters through comics, movies, multiple cartoons, and live-action television shows. Yes shows even though everyone remembers the classic Linda Carter version there was another that didn’t make it past the pilot.

Mezco delivers their exclusive Wonder Woman in her classic edition. Included with her is lasso of truth coiled and poseable, cape, shield, Sword of Athena, ax, four pairs of hands(fist, lasso holding, sword holding, posing hands), Spear, and the iconic logo posing base. She is dressed in her star pattern suit with her bullet blocking gauntlets, her WW symbol belt with Lasso holder, and her reinforced battle armor.

Even without the Lasso of Truth wrapped around me, I cannot lie about this figure. She is a great addition alongside the classic Superman and Batman. With Aquaman classic not too far behind, we have the making of the Justice League. She is by far one of the best female characters they have released. Articulation is great with double-jointed elbows that everyone has come to love from this line. The cape is poseable with integrated wiring.  Multiple accessories allow for different battle poses with I love the ax and shield combo giving her a different look from the norm of sword and shield and the addition of the spear just made for more go-to poses.

 Wonder Woman Classic is a Mezco Exclusive and is selling fast. If you can get your hands on this figure she is a great one to add to your collection. Price point remains the usual cost and again worth every penny. Mezco once again keeps raising the bar in the One:12 scale figures.
