Amanda Waller (lack of) Action Figure
But she is not a superhero. She's not a dude. She's not white.
She is: a lady in a business coat, skirt and sensible pumps. She's also overweight. And African American.
Honestly, the chances that a modern day action figure line would include her at all were astronomical. Let's face it - I saw her at retail. I own her now. And yet I could still be convinced that she doesn't exist. Because she shouldn't exist based on all the 'rules' I know about the toy world.
Not to mention the fact that she was available as one third of a retail available three pack. That still blows my mind. She wasn't the lone new release in a twenty pack of Batman repaints. She wasn't a retailer exclusive (that I recall). She wasn't only available as an online exclusive (although she pre-dates Mattycollector.com and their insane merchandising decisions).
She is a gem for all those reasons and more.
like I said, I saw her at retail when she was on the shelves, and passed. Not that I was ever a JLU completist. Far from it. But I owned a few and grabbed exclusives when I could. I just couldn't muster the need to buy her back then.
I did buy her for a buck at the flea market. I almost didn't because...well,...a buck is a lot of money at the flea market! I could get two, maybe three or even four toys for that price! But I thought to myself again how impossible her existence is...she's like the platypus of toy evolution...so I bought her.
She shouldn't exist. She's like holding anti-matter. Like glimpsing through a keyhole in timespace into an alternate universe.
And sadly, she's boring.
