This type of packaging has been very popular with action figures lately. They're great for storage, but a real pain to open.
The paint job isn't as good up close as it is from afar.
The sculpting is pretty nice, as you can see the detail underneath the shoulderpads.
The biggest flaw in the paint job is the hair, where it's just yellow slathered over the red plastic. It's great when viewed at a distance, but looks sloppy when viewed up close.
The DC Direct series isn't very poseable, despite having several points of articulation. They're more of mini-statues for display.
There are also random 'wound' marks on Valeera's body, as can be seen on her thigh. Paint job is good on some parts.
The face sculpt is a bit longish, more like a Night Elf than a Blood Elf.
Valeera's cape is nicely done, and extends all the way through underneath her legs, making the pose more dynamic and adds support for standing.
I like the gritty look of the figure, specially with the tattered cape and holes on the leggings.
I was somewhat disappointed that the sword wasn't based on an existing WoW item (that I know of).
The figure comes with two clear discs to prop it up for display.
