The DC Bombshells line included three characters (Batwoman, Wonder Woman, Harley Quinn and Supergirl), each designed to have a 1940s pin-up style version of their traditional costume. For whatever reason, Batwoman's outfit is baseball themed, which seems a bit like a silly pun (she has a baseball bat, because she's the bat-woman, buh da bump!), but at least it got her some interesting accessories.
The doll comes packed in the standard Tonner style, with a thick cardboard outer box with a stamped label, and then the standard doll box inside.

The doll is secured to the box with the standard three ribbons at her neck, waist, and ankles. She ships dressed with her accessories (a baseball bat, hat, mask, socks, shoes, wrist guards, and red option hands) bagged and secured to the sides of the box.
|Inside the box.|
The doll herself is the standard Tonner 16" body with 12 points of articulation (neck, waist, shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, knees). The shoulders and elbows are ball-jointed while the knees are hinge-jointed). Her face screening is near-perfect, and the applied eyelashes stand out well, but the number one feature would have to be the bright red fibre hair - both the colour and the texture are excellent.

The accessories are decent quality, although I found the wrist guards to have fasteners that were so small that they were a pain to get open and closed.
|The Batwoman's bat|
Given that she comes with a second set of hands, I had assumed that one set could hold the bat, but as it turns out that's not true.

As for her other accessories, their fit is a little uneven: her socks are too narrow to be pushed all the way up, which causes them to look slouched and a little messy. And while her mask fits well, the cap looks a little strange when it's on her head.
|The mask fits well...|
|...But the cap is a little awkward.|
The doll also comes with a saddle-style doll stand, which is always great for dolls that aren't the most solid on their feet (and this doll is definitely one of those).
|With the stand she can go for a jog.|

As with all dolls in this line, she towers over 1/6th scale figures and fashion dolls and is closer in size to MSD-range BJDs and 16" play dolls.
|Batwoman towers over 1/6th scale Alistair (to her immediate left).|
|She's slightly shorter than Lumedoll Atik (L), and similar in height|

Overall, I'm pleased with this doll - while the hinged knees on this line still keep me from wanting to pay retail for them, I do think her overall quality is fantastic, so I'm glad to have added her to my collection (and she probably has the best hair of any fashion doll I've owned).
|A parting glance: Thanks for looking!|
