The Amber Heard celebrity doll depicts her as the DC Comics superhero character Mera, a queen of Atlantis and the wife of Aquaman, in the Warner Brothers Pictures 2017 Justice League and 2018 Aquaman movies. Aquaman II is set to be released in 2022 with Amber Heard in the role of Mera. The doll was released by Mattel on September 12, 2017 at a retail value of $39.95. The Mera Signature Black Label Barbie was designed by Bill Greening and is part of their Justice League Collection.
Queen of Atlantis and wife of Aquaman
Once again, Wonder Woman™ must demonstrate her ability as a fierce warrior. Facing a great enemy, she and Batman™ join forces to recruit a group of meta-humans to stand against this newly awakened threat. Having formed an unprecedented league of heroes, they set out to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
The Amber Heard doll is not easy to wrestle from the box. Many poly bands keep the plastic armor is place while in the box. Aside from the ties into the head and hair thread, the doll is held in with all poly bands.
The long red, ring curls hair style is held back by a headband like crown attached to the side of the head on each side with thread matching the hair color. The red hair is a more natural red than what the bright cartoon like cherry red the character Mera had in the Aquaman movie. With a little finesse the crown can be slid up and taken off without cutting the threads. This enables its future replacement. The hair style is complete under the crown. The sharp detailed painted eyes are green and the lips are pink.
The hands are half painted gold to make them appear as part of the armor. The costume is a green with black and gold patterned stretch full body leotard underneath gold plastic boot to knee armor, body armor, shoulder shields, and arm protectors. The armor is sewn in place but looks very much like it could be cut off. The body suit doesn’t have opening but appears to be stretchy enough that it could possible be pulled off. It would be very difficult to put the costume back on once removed since the stitches hold it in place. The tightness of the costume and armor do somewhat limit the movement and positioning of the doll. The articulation would be greater in an un-costumed doll.
The heeled boots are gold plastic and connect all the way to the calf shields. They are substantial enough that the doll does a reasonable job of standing on its own.
The Signature Black Label Mera Barbie is articulated at the neck (very little up and down motion for the head), shoulders (partial ball joint), elbows, wrists (armor limits movement), hips (does front back splits, but stretches body suit), and knees.
The Adult collectors’ doll comes with a clear plastic stand with a black base and an official Mattel Certificate of Authenticity,
