La La La La GATUBELA, the Mexican Catwoman

Watch out! Villainous Gatubela has arrived at TOYLOCO!

Lili Ledy Batman and Robin should beware. Here comes the Feline Femme Fatale GATUBELA, the Lili Ledy Catwoman. She represents the only villain in the Lili Ledy Super Chicas (Super Girls) line which includes Batchica (Batgirl), Marvila (Wonder Woman) and Supernina (Supergirl). Lemme tell you, she is Purrfect. Based on her MEGO counterpart, she models a one-piece bodysuit with oversized collar and Super Chica boots in blue. Finished off with a long stuffed tail, this Super Chica always lands on her feet.

With the exception of Marvila (Wonder Woman) who has a Type 2 suit, the Super Chicas sport the Type 3 suits. While many MEGO Catwomen are prone to fade, Ledy Gatubela’s suit maintains a deep, rich indigo year after year. No Triple H, you can’t pet that KITTY. She’s Dangerous!!!

Oddly enough, interest seems to be higher outside Mexico than within. So, examples don’t pop up very often. When they do, most are missing some or all of their original accessories. Finding one in decent condition is a challenge that frustrates even the most clever of collectors. As cute as she is, can you blame the Mexican children for loving her so much?

WHAT DID I TELL YOU?!?!

Well, with that cropped hair, which is usually a bit stiffer than that of the other three Ledy women figures, she is a figure you don’t want to miss. She is scarce and should be purchased without hesitation. Such a simple figure, too — head sculpt and suit are the only individualized features. The boots are just a different color but are the same molds as Supernina and Batchica.

Good luck hunting Gatubela! She hunts back, so watch yourself!
