Just opened up my Gamestop order with Tigra in it and GOOD LORD she is orange. Haven't even opened her yet but dayum. Still excited to have her, but very much a modern iteration of the character!

Mine arrived today as well, and while I like her quite a bit, her left thigh cut/joint appears to be hopelessly stuck. No amount of heating or freezing has done anything. *sigh*

When I opened the box, my first thought was “I can’t believe I actually spent money on this.” However, as I’m working the joints and putting her in poses, she’s really starting to grow on me. Maybe it just takes awhile for the “Orange Shock” to wear off.

I think Norm's nails not being painted is a Norm problem, not a Hasbro problem.

I wonder if Hasbro will have the sack to brave the waves of cancel culture and reuse this Tigra buck for a Shanna the She-Devil? A new Savage Land 3 pack is up there with an Inferno wave or box set for me.

Messing with Tigra now. The new body is great! Love the articulation. I do wish the tail was on a ball joint so it could do more than spin in place.

The new furry sculpt leaves a bit to be desired - I was expecting more coverage than she got, it is basically just some very subtle tufts at some joints and decent coverage on her shoulders and feet. Would have been cool to see them go all out with her.

Overall though this is a fun figure to mess around with. Still not wild about the coloration and would happily buy a redo down the line!

Ha, I threw Tigra on an order with Hercules and the retro FF wave in order to get free shipping on the first two since they were all "scheduled" for February (Herc for December, but easy wait). Just got the e-mail from Dorkside that she's in. Oh well, I can wait a few months on Lady Cheeto. :)

My Tigra came today & holy hell that orange is so severe it was practically glowing. Definitely going to need a repaint. The sculpt is good, but the fur is so subtle that the flat paint job makes it barely noticeable & the lack of cleavage sculpt (similar to the black costume Emma Frost) looks odd to me. She may get a hair transplant too -- I do like that they are using the non-hard plastic for the top thigh/hip pieces so there's not a weird contrast of colors between where the top thigh/hip meets the rest of the leg.

Dorkside shipped my Tigra, I thought this was a few months out yet. That's cool.

Got charged for Tigra and shipping notification via Dorkside.

Once I saw Tigra and Aurra Sing were in stock at Gamestop, I canceled my pre-order with dorkside. An added bonus was they were both on sale, too. They both were delivered today while I was at work so I can't wait to get home and open them up.

I ended up with a second Tigra (whoops!) so I decided to try a hair transplant...

It is definitely NOT a perfect fit and does indeed look a bit wonky, but...I think I kind of like it :)

I am positive someone with a little more skill & patience could make this look amazing!
