San Diego Comic-Con is only a month away and it’s already been announced that attendees will have access to a slew of exclusive Funko Pop! figures, featuring the likes of Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts characters, Stranger Things and The Walking Dead characters, and special DC figures. Now, Mattel has announced they’re releasing two exclusive DC superhero figures for the event as well.
Offering a 12-inch Super Hero Girls figure pack featuring Wonder Woman and Cheetah, Mattel is focusing more on younger attendees with the figures. Wonder Woman sports her lasso and shield while Cheetah gets a modern-style outfit and cellphone.
It should be noted that the designs are not based on the Wonder Woman film and are instead a part of their more generic DC lineup of toys. Interested convention-goers can already pre-order the pack for $45 via Mattel’s website and then pick it up during the event at the Mattel booth.
You can get a glimpse of the figures via the images below.
Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman, starring Gal Gadot as Diana Prince, Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, Lucy Davis as Etta Candy, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, Robin Wright as General Antiope, Lisa Loven Kongsli as Menalippe, Danny Huston as General Erich Ludendorff, David Thewlis as Sir Patrick Morgan, Elena Anaya as Doctor Maru, Ewen Bremner as Charlie, Saïd Taghmaoui as Sameer and Eugene Brave Rock as the Chief, is now playing in theaters.
San Diego Comic-Con runs July 20-23 in San Diego, California.
