The micro-girl with a Ph.D. in microbiology is certainly cute in the TV series, and the same is true here. Standing about 8-inches tall in her familiar bright colors and glasses, and a retro style that harkens back to the bestselling Mego action figures of the 1970s and 1980s, this plastic The Big Bang Theory Bernadette Rostenkowski 8-Inch Action Figure features multiple points of articulation. It will put you right there on the set with Sheldon, Leonard, Penny, and the whole gang. And if you're a fan of The Big Bang Theory, Mego, or retro figures in general, you're going to want them all! After all, it's the intelligent thing to do. Other figures sold separately. Ages 14 and up.
Dr. Bernadette Maryann Rostenkowski-Wolowitz is a pint-sized scientist who, aptly, has a Ph.D. in Microbiology. Her height is a source of sensitivity due to a childhood bully, who once replaced her clothes with an elf’s costume. That was still too large. Bernadette is also not a huge fan of children. This stems from her forced employment at the illegal daycare center that her mother ran out of their home’s basement. Additionally, Bernadette’s father was a police officer. This is something that she admits caused her anxiety as a child as she worried about his safety constantly. She and Howard met on a blind date through Penny and instantly bonded through their mommy issues. Superpowers: Safely handling the world’s most deadly viruses, Mrs. Wolowitz impressions (it’s uncanny!). Weaknesses: Scarily competitive. Doesn’t know how to ride a bike (because her mother thought she would lose her virginity going over a bump!), Mrs. Wolowitz impressions (it freaks Howard out!).
In The Big Bang Theory, Leonard and Sheldon are brilliant physicists – geniuses in the laboratory, but socially challenged in the real world. Enter beautiful, street-smart neighbor, Penny who aims to teach them a thing or two about life. Despite their on-again, off-again relationship in the past, Leonard believes he’s found true love with Penny. Even Sheldon has found a female companion – entering into a “Relationship Agreement” with neurobiologist Amy Farrah Fowler. In their free time, Leonard and Sheldon continue to enjoy frequent trips to the comic book store and fantasy role-playing games with their ever-expanding universe of friends, including fellow scientists Raj and Howard, and Howard's adorable microbiologist wife, Bernadette.
