Was it any good? Is it worth picking up? I can get one for about $7, but I'm wondering if it's worth it?

It's a hell of alot better than mattel's version and I use her in my JLU collection so yes it is worth it in my opinion.

I agree. Completely worth it... for both the figure and that price.

She's out of scale, but I'd agree she's superior to the Mattel version. If you have any customizing skills, you might cut her down to a more reasonable approximation -- slicing her legs at the skirt and removing about a quarter-inch, and doing the same to her arms at the glove. I've done that to a Creeper figure, and he looks much better with JLU. I haven't tried it with Supergirl, but it should work.

If you can find one the best Supergirl is the Jack In The Box version. I got one a couple years ago on eBay for about $8.

I like the Jack-in-the-Box Supergirl better but both are really good figures.

Got her. Haven't opened it yet, but she looks good, with one exception.
Oddly enough, she only has one painted eyebrow.

I say no way! She was way too tall for the line she was intended for (and not a great sculpt at all). For JLU, she'd be far too tall. I think Mattel's is much better in terms of size, and cheaper. I have the Jack in the Box one though, so I can say for sure that's the absolute best figure available.

Yes. The Hasbro Supergirl is almost as out of scale as Mattel's. The Jack in the Box figure is perfect.

I also have the Jack in the Box figure, and would agree that it's the best. They are extremely scarce, however. In lieu of the JITB figure, I still assert Hasbro's is still better than Mattel's, particularly at a $7 price tag. I paid more than that at my comic shop when they were first issued many years ago, and you'll pay a LOT more than that for the JITB figure.

And again, it's possible to cut the Hasbro figure down to a better size. Can't do much with Mattel's Polly Pocket.

Ha! I think I'm the only JLU collector which likes the JLU Supergirl :wink:

Of course it would help if she's a little taller, but I really think she's better than STAS Supegirl.

You're not the only one, I prefer the mattel Supergirl to the Hasbro one. But I have the Jack In The Box Supergirl that is perfect inscale for JLU, despite the forced pose, and I use that for my JLU collection.

I think now that Mattel are turning JLU into DCAU, it would be good to see some do overs of charcters that don't hit the mark scale wise. I think most of us would be happy to buy more accurate versions of both Supergirl and Stargirl if Mattel re-made them in DCAU. Especially as alot of collectors didn't even get Stargirl due to poor distribution.

Yeah, I'd also like to see a more in scale AMAZO and Atom Smasher.
