True to the comicbook counterpart the cowl is a full mask, with the mouth opening having been stiched up, along with the eyeholes. Underneath, Cassie has the most adorable face, with huge brown eyes and full pouting lips. Overall the look is very anime style, and works well. In a nice addition Batgirl has a pegged hairpiece. Her hair is in a bun, and is very different to most of the other female Minimate hairpieces.
The costume is all black, with a yellow outlined Batsymbol and tactical belt. In a move mirroring some of the more recent examples of costumed female Minimates, there is some grey highlighting around the bust and sides to suggest a more womanly figure than the nature of the blocks will allow. She has a cape, which like most capes is removable so that she can sit in the Flyer without mishap.
The Batgirl Mini Flyer is pretty much identical to the Batman Mini Flyer. Not hugely surprising when you think that the Flyers are more of an afterthought to get the Minimates into the market.
As with the Batman Mini Flyer and the other sets, there are few gimmicks to be found in the Mini Flyer design. An opening canopy and cockpit area for the Batgirl Minimate. Also as with the Batman Mini Flyer, the back of the Batgirl Mini Flyer sports a yellow Batsymbol, this time the slightly elogated Batgirl version.
The packaging is a very small semi-window box. The Batman logo appears at the top left. The packaging is done in the normal C3 style, they have added the Minimate head graphic style from the Marvel Minimates sets to the side of the box. To the right, you can see the Minimate very clearly in the window portion of the box. The C3 pieces are all bagged up in the main part of the box, and the Minimate is packaged in a tray on the right hand side. There is one twist-tie holding the figure in.
The back of the box shows the cross-sell of the other new C3 sets, and a "technical specification" type drawing to show off the set itself.

Minimates are 2-inch tall "block figures", similar to Lego men or KUBRICKS. Each Minimate has the same identically constructed body but posses 14 points of articulation.
C3 stands for Create, Construct, Customize. In order to make the DC Comics Minimates, due to licensing restrictions the Minimates themselves had to come with a building block set. Hence, C3 was born.
C3 is where you will find 2-inch Minimates based on DC Comics properties like Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman. So far the C3 series have released 2 waves.
The Mini Flyers were part of the 2nd wave and contained: The Riddler Mini Flyer, Alternate Superman Mini Flyer, Batman Mini Flyer, Nightwing Mini Flyer, The Flash Mini Flyer and the Batgirl Mini Flyer.
The Mini Flyers feature one Minimate and one small flying craft. The piece count is low but the emphasis is really on the Minimates with these small sets.
