Added to the collection: TV's Wonder Woman, portrayed by the one and only Lynda Carter!
I am SO HAPPY this #actionfigure
exists. When I was little, everyone I knew watched the #wonderwoman
TV series, but all the boys were expected to pretend they didn't--unless it was because she was pretty, in which case it was marginally acceptable, but still viewed with a hint of playground suspicion. We couldn't buy WW #toys
or merch. I wanted a WW action figure so badly, but gender norms in the '70s were a bunch of bullshit, so it didn't happen.
Years later, I own a bunch of different WW figures (this is number 32...yep, 32), but this one is special: it's #lyndacarter
, the Wonder Woman of my youth, and nobody can tell me it's not OK to have her on my team!
Waiting 40-ish years for a toy to exist makes owning it pretty sweet. #mattel #dcmultiverse #toycollector #dccomics #geek
