Before, I had only middling interest in the Honey Trap line, but these two new girls impressed me so much, I'm now seriously considering diving in! Absolutely gorgeous.

The Russian comes across as the least fitting. The dress appears to be fabric, and the coat made from some sort of man-made fur, and there appears to be a real chain. It feels less and less sculpted statue, and borderline doll. I don't quite get the Rocket-launcher on the base? maybe she should be carrying it. The Russian Honey Trap could use more work.
There was supposed to be more mixed media, according to one of the first SDCC videos revealing the original line, but I think they cut that out trying to lower the production cost. Whisper has quite a few pieces of mixed media.

Junior has got to be the stupidest name for a female character. Glad it's finally up for preorder though.

I am waiting for Brexit to come up for Pre-Order. As long as it looks like the proto anyway.

What's with the straight hairlines now? Like someone said about the long haired portrait of Black Widow on Sideshow thread it makes Junior look like a tea cup with hair sprouting out of it....
(in my opinion). I also prefer the Fireball name for her...

I don't get the re name. Fireball was fine
Looks like they stuck with the new Tutu, rather than the better looking, all be it fragile, original Tutu design.

I've pre ordered mine
I just hope the quality equals that of Kay-Ya or Derby, as Lucky didn't appear to be quite on form.
