Despite vowing not to add any further Betty Boop figurines to my huge collection due to the fact that I am seriously lacking space, I found it extremely difficult to resist, particularly when a collection of new figurines were launched during the late Autumn of last year. However, I was very good as I only purchased three; one of which is named Betty Boop Baseball and this review discusses the gorgeous figurine.
Betty Boop Baseball is manufactured entirely from resin and measures 30 cm in height and one kilogram in weight. She is firmly attached to a glossy black circular base to enable her to be securely displayed. Betty is an extremely curvaceous lady and this collectable perfectly flaunts her sexy body, which is positioned in readiness for her to hit the ball. Her petite rear end significantly protrudes and enables us to witness her flawless contours.
Betty wears a pair of white figure hugging baseball trousers with a neon red coloured horizontal running from her waistband to the top of her white socks, which are trimmed with two matching horizontal stripes. Betty is a lady who generally wears painful looking high heeled shoes, but in keeping with the sport she is playing she wears a pair of flat red trainers. The attention to detail is simply first class as tiny black shoe laces have been created from resin to give the appearance of real life shoes.
What I love about this recently launched figurine is the colours the manufacture has used as instead of the normal red that appears in many of my other collectables, an eye-catching neon red has been used for her top. The long sleeves are white to match Betty's trousers and the number "1" has been painted on the upper arm of her left sleeve. Betty's arms are positioned in front of her body where she tightly clasps her baseball bat. Despite the bat being small it is perfectly proportioned and gives a realistic appearance.
Betty is clearly a multi-talented lady, as she looks just the part in her baseball attire and she is clearly the number one player. I am absolutely thrilled with this figurine, as in addition to the extremely eye-catching outfit Betty wears a tiny baseball cap that is perched on the top of her head between two of the eight curvy points that depict her black glossy curls. The cap displays a combination of the white and neon red colours used in her outfit together with the large letter "B".
One of the unique features of Betty Boop is her head, which is too large for her tiny body, but it is this that gives her adorable and cute appearance. Normally her facial features are identical to the other figurines that I own, but on this one we are able to witness more of her beautiful green eyes. Despite the fact that Betty is participating in a tough sport she still appears perfectly groomed and her ruby red lips are in a puckered pose. Located on the underside of the figurine is the familiar logo belonging to the manufacturer and owners of the Betty Boop trademark, namely The Hearst Holdings Inc and this ensures the figurine's authenticity.
I've not yet experienced the pleasure of cleaning this figurine, particularly as the dust is minimal due to her being displayed in a glass cabinet. However, from previous experience with dusting the others in my collection, this will be relatively easy with a dry cloth and a small clean paintbrush to enable me to access any hard to reach areas. This cute collectable is available from all good Betty Boop stockists and at the time of writing she can be purchased from Amazon for £50 inclusive of postage and packing.
