PHICEN 1/6th scale Captain Sparta 12-inch Female Action Figure looks more Amazonian

From Phicen:
For many people, the sheer mentioning of Sparta often invokes overwhelming feelings of power and great beauty. It's enthralling to us! So... here comes our 2nd Sparta-related figure: Captain Sparta.

PHICEN PL2016-98 1/6th scale Captain Sparta Female Action Figure Features: Head sculpt, Phicen female seamless body with stainless steel armature, Hand assortment, Helmet, Cape with necklace decoration, Shoulder guards, Chest guard, Short skirt, Arm guards, Calf guards, Sandal / feet, Sword, Spear, Shield, Deluxe figure base

Spartan? Looks a lot more like the Amazons of Paradise Island where Wonder Woman comes from. The Amazonian people of DC Comics are a fictional matriarchal society of ethnically diverse superhumans, based on the Amazons of Greek mythology. The Greek Gods created the Amazons and bestowed upon them the mandate as guardians of "man's world". Despite their sacred duty, they ultimately chose to abandon it until circumstances forced their existence to be revealed to the modern world. Created and favored by Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love, the Amazons thrived in peace for centuries, but remained aloof from the world of Man. The youngest, strongest, and most human of the Amazons, Princess Diana, left her protective nation of sisterhood, renouncing her immortality to fight the forces of evil in Man's World as Wonder Woman.

And with the film coming out this year, why not?

While she undoubtly looks great, calling her "armour" riddiculous would be a great understatement.

The armor is part of her attack strategy; you get distracted while she runs you through with her sword!

does anyone know what the cape is made of? I think nylon but I want to be sure because my Sparta Captain's cape was folded in the box and I want to iron it but I don't want to destroy it.
