BATTLE OF THE PLANETS
Today, I’m looking at another of Diamond’s Battle of the Planets figures. This time it’s the token female of the team Princess
THE FIGURE ITSELF
The figure is the regular release version of Princess. Like Mark, there was also an un-helmeted one which I never acquired. She stands just under 7 inches and has roughly 7 points of articulation. Her articulation works better than Mark’s, especially her hips, which use a hinge style of joint, which creates a better state of movement. However, my figure suffers from an issue that seems to have plagued the line: brittle joints. My figure’s left hip joint snapped on its own, sitting on the shelf, which is not a pleasant thing. My opinion of the figure would be higher, were it not for this issue.
THE ME HALF OF THE EQUATION
Like Mark, I got Princess after reading Dynamite’s Battle of the Planets, and because I found a set of the first series for about $20. Its issues make it difficult to fully enjoy the figure.
