she will be part of the same series as Dark Phoenix, Mystique, and Storm - the Marvel dolls that Mattel has already done. Given that the dolls don't look like the movie characters/actresses and more like the comic book versions (particularly Mystique) I'm assuming something more like this than the Scarlett Johansson version

And one more that was missed in the original graphic. No idea what she will be. Another David Bowie-style, perhaps?

My thoughts? I'm seeing some things to like. I feel the Storm Trooper is a way to "balance" the collection - two from the Empire and two from the Rebel Alliance. I like it and hope that Robert Best has designed this doll as well as the others really do have his design "fingerprints" all over it. Would be a shame to have another designer take over.
I like the choices for the Inspiring Women. Two excellent choices, imo, especially if the goal of this line is to teach some basic history as well.
With Black Widow, again, I think it's an attempt to balance the collection and makes me more likely to consider buying the first three.
The two anniversary dolls hold promise, but Mattel will likely screw those up, much like the second BFMC doll of the year.
The Mythical Muse dragon hasn't been a secret though I am eager to see the prototype with the color scheme.
I think the Jean Michel Basquiat will probably be along the lines of the Keith Haring doll, so I'll reserve judgement on that one as the first, while cute, wasn't what I was expecting.
