#TFNY: IAmElemental Set to Reveal New Female Action Figure based on Hypatia...

Written by

The North American International Toy Fair is fast-approaching, and those in attendance February 17-20, 2018 can get their first-look at the latest character from IAmElemental, creators of the first female action figures designed specifically for children. The company is set to debut their latest Series 2/Wisdom Warrior Core Power action figure at Booth #5207 - this one inspired by Alexandrian STEM pioneer Hypatia.

2018 IAmElemental HypatiaAccording to IAmElemental’s Chief Elemental Officer, Julie Kerwin, “Our Series 2/Wisdom Warrior Core Power Figure represents seven Superpowers that reside inside us all: Creativity, Ingenuity, Curiosity, Logic, Exploration, Mastery and Oblivion.  Kids and collectors alike are sure to appreciate this fierce Wisdom Warrior.  Her translucent bow, shaped like a sliver of the moon, references both Artemis, the mythic huntress, as well as Creativity's power to hunt down new ideas.  Her armor and cape combination derive from both Logic and Mastery.  And her hair’s intricate yet battle-ready style -- a nod to Hypatia’s Egyptian birthplace -- continues our theme of power as action.”

The Wisdom Warrior Core Power Figure features more than 30 points of articulation and includes removable accessories including a helmet, armor, powerful bow and arrow, and Wisdom shield.  The figure will retail for $24.99.

IAmElemental’s strong, healthy female action figures invite girls and boys to develop their character by playing with “The Elements of Power.”  The company’s Series 1/Courage figures, modeled on Joan of Arc, were launched on Kickstarter to worldwide acclaim in 2014.  Series 2/Wisdom followed in 2016, with ancient Alexandrian STEM pioneer Hypatia as the muse.  Each series culminates in the release of a 6.5” Core Power figure, which is a fusion of all Elements in the series.

IAmElemental has been a favorite here at Rock Father HQ for awhile now. It was recently announced that the brand will take center stage in a new animated series from The Jim Henson Company.
