Maeve may be out of The 7, but she’s still attempting to be stunning and brave in the collectibles market. The key word here is “attempting.” We came across a new Queen Maeve 1:6 scale figure on Sideshow and noticed something was slightly off.
For a $349 action figure, this thing doesn’t look like it’s on the same level as something from Hot Toys. It captures some of Dominique McElligott’s fantastic face, but the eyes are creepy. Maybe they’re too blue or too wide?
The detailing on Maeve’s costume also leaves a lot to be desired. I applaud Star Ace Toys for using a seamless body for the figure, but I’d be hard-pressed to spend that much money on something like this when there are other collectibles with superior craftsmanship and a lower price.
She’s expected to ship during the Summer. If you do decide to pre-order Maeve, here’s what you’ll get:
- Sixth scale Seamless body (approximately 30 cm tall) with over 30 points of articulation
- Fully realized authentic likeness of Dominique McElligott as Queen Maeve in the Amazon Prime TV show “The Boys” (2021)

Dominique McElligott’s Queen Maeve is quite different than her comic book counterpart. For one, she’s alive but now powerless thanks to Soldier Boy’s explosive Compound V-sapping ability; what will the former superhero do with her time?
The Boys’ second and third seasons tried to balance social commentary about corporations using sexual and racial identities as marketing ploys. Sometimes it worked; sometimes, it fell flat. Hopefully, Amazon will move past this in the fourth season, but the writers want to drive home that annoying MAGA angle with Homelander.
