She came out freaking great. Forgot she was on a pinless body.

She looks fun to pose, but my god... she's radioactive orange.

Hope she gets a rerelease with a more yellow coloring

Since when are tigers yellow? They're usually orange, black, and white. If she appeared yellow in any comics I'd assume that's a color error.

Like 90% of her appearances are the closer in color to a No.2 pencil... not cheeto florescent orange

Her old hasbro figure is actually her correct coloring

Tigra looks fantastic. Really fun to see those West Coast Avengers teams!

The figure looks good, I just wish the "classic" head hair was fuller & that she was more yellow as depicted in comics than flamin' cheeto orange.

I need to stop using Paypal when pre-ordering at Dorkside so it's easier to cancel & order elsewhere since they seem to be getting things later (or not at all in the case of some 6+ month wait single orders)

Yup. Still too orange. I may try to lighten her up a bit. Not sure if I'll try to somehow shade her. I usually just straight repaint, but doing that to a whole figure, can get taxing. Especially when the paint doesn't go on proper. Have to worry about the joints and neckline too. It's such a chore. And pinless is just gonna be a bitch to paint. At least the old ones you can take apart, paint, seal, reassemble. This new pinless stuff has its drawbacks.

Maybe if I just leave her in the sun for a couple days she'll oxidize like the old stormtroopers. They turned yellow. Why not her?

Tigra's color is definitely not classic, but neither are either head sculpt. If you look at her Gallery on Marvel Fandom, there are several images from Avengers Academy where she is colored the way the figure is:

Would I have preferred both classic coloring and head sculpts? Yes. Is this modern version totally inaccurate? No.

I really wish they'd hit this up with a slightly lighter yellow dry brush or overspray - would help to pick up the fur detail, which I totally appreciate, but which gets a bit lost against the super-intense orange. I'm tempted to do it myself, but it would mean repainting the black stripes, which definitely gives me pause for thought.

That and slightly fuller hair on both headsculpts would elevate this to perfect for me.

DS just shipped my two Tigras today.

I ordered these, Kro, 2x Hercules and the Eternals wave in the same order and selected the "Ship as they become available" option, so apart from the Eternals wave, i'll be hit with the shipping cost 3x. Oh well.. getting new figures is always nice.. I wont know if the last item in the order might be backordered and will ship at the end of the year. :lol:
