The QMX Q-Fig Elite Catwoman Diorama comes packed in the Q-Fig windowless cube box, which is the standard packaging for this line of products. In lieu of window packaging, QMX offers beautiful original Catwoman art and product photos on the panels of the packaging as well as unique and fun quips such as “BOXES ARE MEANT TO BE OPENED” and “CAUTION: KNOWN TO CAUSE JOY IN HUMANS” – Which is a very true statement! The packaging also offers a unique pane; that lifts up that is attached by a little Velcro fastener and offers larger products photos and a fun way to open the product as well as a neat way to display the packaging for anyone who may be an “in box” collector, although once you see the packaging and photos, it’s extremely hard to fight the urge to want to open this one.

Sculpt –
Much like QMX’s standard Q-Fig line, the Q-Fig Elite offers the same style of diorama with the character averaging about three to four inches in height and is a unique mash-up of detail and child like characteristics that set these Q-Figs apart from similar products that only focus on the silly childlike properties. The thing that makes this particular diorama an “elite” Q-Fig is the added details given to the diorama itself and the above average display the character stands on. The particular piece has Catwoman posed on a Gargoyle as a play off of the many poses we have seen of Batman on a Gargoyle, but this Gargoyle is actually a cat. Also added to the diorama are three different cats that are posing with Selina, one on the head of the Gargoyle popping out of a bag full of loot and jewelry, one actually perched on top of Cat woman’s head, and the last one at her feet, rubbing his head against her leg showing her some love. Honestly, QMX could have just had her standing on the cat Gargoyle and it would have already been an elevated piece, but the addition of the cats is one of the things that really sets QMX apart from their competitors going that extra mile to deliver only the best for their fans and collectors. The sculpt of Catwoman herself is pretty much flawless giving her more of a Batman the Animated Series look, while blending it with their signature stylization. Catwoman holds up a red gem that she obviously scored from one of her cat burglaries in her hand and the extra detailing on her face such as her expression and her tongue sticking out of her mouth is another example of QMX going the extra distance to deliver the most for your money. The cats are all sculpted with the same amount of precision as Catwoman herself and the platform and gargoyle are no exception either with both being fully detailed to the max offering a stone work look and the platform mimics what you would expect to see on a Gotham City rooftop. I checked this thing over and over and could not find a single flaw in the sculpt work anywhere. A piece worthy of the name “elite” for sure.

Paint –

QMX is known across the industry already for their brilliant paint work and exceptional palettes when it comes to the Q-Fig line as it is, but this Elite figure really lives up to the name with them (QMX) going above and beyond. For this Catwoman, they went a different route than what I am used to seeing and used a lot of darker tones to mimic the rooftops of Gotham City at night and they executed it beautifully. Usually when companies try to mimic night time dioramas and statues, they go a little too dark and pieces can become muddy or hard to differentiate because it all becomes lost in the background, but true to QMX, they offer a broad color palette and have brilliant tones and highlights that really make Catwoman pop from her surroundings without taking away from that night time rooftop feel. As an elite figure, the actual application of the paint on this one was done with a lot more precision and attention than maybe your standard Q-Fig and I couldn’t find a single spot of overspray or heavily applied paint anywhere on this piece. Every nook and cranny are painted and it is all applied smoothly and without incident. Even the smaller details like the loot bag, the jewelry, and the little cats are all painted with exceptional precision and look great as a display piece.

The Q-Fig Elite Catwoman Diorama is a static display, much like a statue and does not offer any kind of articulation.

The QMX Q-Fig Elite Catwoman Diorama is an exceptional display piece that is truly worthy of the name “elite”. It offers twice the detailing and display properties of the standard Q-Fig brand and is has a beautiful and detailed paint application that you normally only find in the high dollar collector statue market. It offers the fun yet seductive properties that make Catwoman a beloved character and captures it all in a small scale display piece perfect for any collection big or small.
