Buffy Summers (Graduation Day)
Series: Sideshow Toys’ Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Release Date: 2005
Comments: There have been many Buffy figures in many different scales, but Sideshows’ 12″ offerings are among the strongest. For the first Buffy feature, I’ve chosen the Chosen One herself, Miss Buffy Anne Summers. This release was Sideshow’s second stab at the slayer. The first 12″ Buffy was a solid figure, but the sculpt, outfit and odd skin tone made that figure fall a little short of excellent. Here in her Graduation Day outfit, the shortcomings of the first figure are gone. She is rocking a great head sculpt, with a likeness much closer to Sarah Michelle Gellar. I can’t say anything bad about this one, of all the Sideshow Buffy releases this is my favorite, followed closely by the first Angel figure they issued. A “close-up” shot of Miss Summers is after the jump, just because she’s that great.
