Action Figure Maniac Reviews: Mattel: Batman v Superman: 6 Inch Aquaman

DC Comics Multiverse: Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice: 6 Inch Aquaman
Mattel
Retail: $19.99 @ Target

It seems all of my lamenting about not being able to find Mattel’s Batman v Superman 6 inch Aquaman was for nothing! I found him, and then I found him again, and again. He’s everywhere now!

Aquaman comes in the second wave of 6 inch BvS figures from Mattel. The other two are ‘Nightmare’ Batman and Lex Luthor.

As with the others, Aquaman comes in a fairly attractive window box. The only difference between the package from this series and the first is the inclusion of the new wave of figures on the back of the packaging. We also get teased with a yet-to-be-revealed 8th figure in the line. The silhouette is very reminiscent of Superman.

Aquaman001Aquaman002Aquaman003Aquaman004

Aquaman is easily a diamond-in -the-rough in this line. Although he had little actual screen time, Mattel put a lot of effort into him. He has a great likeness to Jason Momoa, including the scar in his left eyebrow.

Aquaman006Aquaman007Aquaman008Aquaman016

Again, we get a lot of detail on the body of this figure. The tattoos look really solid and all of the gold armor looks good. Weird fact: I am obsessed with the stitching on the inside of his gauntlets.

Aquaman009Aquaman010

He has 20 points of articulation:

  • Ball-and-socket joint at the neck (x1)
  • Rotating hinges at each shoulder (x2)
  • Swivel joints at each bicep (x2)
  • Hinge joints at each elbow (x2)
  • Swivel joints at each wrist (x2)
  • Swivel joint at the waist (x1)
  • Swivel joints at each hip (x2)
  • Hinge joints at each hip (x2)
  • Swivel joints at each thigh (x2)
  • Hinge joints at each knee (x2)
  • Hinges at each ankle (x2)

The bits of disappointment with the articulation have been seen in other figures in the series: neck is hard to articulate because of the solidly sculpted hair, no mid-torso articulation (he’s a swimmer for goodness sake!), and no rocker ankles.

Aquaman012Aquaman011Aquaman014

Compared to the others, he looks really cool. Seeing them together makes me excited to see what the team looks like in the Justice League movie.

Aquaman013

He comes with his trident, which is silver, not gold, and with two articulating grapnel hooks for the collect & connect piece.

Aquaman015

Breakdown:

  • Playability – 4 out of 5. He’s a good looking figure. A bit more articulation would make him a perfect play piece.
  • Packaging¬† – 4 out of 5. I’m still disappointed that we don’t get some type of character bio, but it looks really nice.
  • Paint and Sculpt – 5 out of 5. Home run for Mattel on this one! He looks like Momoa and all the tattoos are cool. He is a little hunch-backed, but I can overlook it.
  • Standability – 4 out of 5. No rocker ankles means that truly dynamic poses are difficult, but he still stands well enough.
  • Articulation – 3 out of 5. Missed some points here for the ankles, torso, and hair – although his neck is more forgiving than Wonder Woman’s.
  • Accessories – 1 out of 5. He has an accessory! Yes! But it’s silver! Dang! I feel better about completing the grapnel now, but it adds no true value to the figure in my opinion.
  • Affordability – 5 out of 5. $19.99 works well here. He is very affordable for collectors and fans alike.

Overall impression: 26 out of 35. Not bad, not bad at all! I like this figure a lot! If it weren’t for the points off on accessories and articulation, he would have made one of my top figures lately. I wish Mattel had taken him to the next level, but he’s still a great figure!

Aquaman005

And just because I was getting creative:

DC Comics Multiverse: Batman v Superman Dawn of Justice: 6 Inch Superman
Mattel
Retail: $19.97 @ Walmart

Well, Batman v Superman has been out in theaters for over a week now. The reviews have been mixed, and so have my reviews of Mattel’s 6 inch movie figures.

Up next is the 6 inch Superman figure. He is one of the first four figures released. The others are Wonder Woman, Batman, and Armored Batman

The window box these figures come packaged in is fairly nice. Superman is very visible in the center of the window. The back shows us the collect & connect Batman grapnel gun and the other figures in the series. One the side, we get a nice picture of Superman and a movie synopsis.

Superman001Superman002Superman003Superman004

Superman looks quite nice, but for some reason, Mattel cannot get Cavill’s face correct. He looks squished up.

Superman005Superman006Superman007Superman013Superman010

They do add a lot of detail to his costume though. There is texture everywhere and the details on his belt, flanks, wrists and boots are well done.

Superman014Superman012

He has 20 points of articulation:

  • Ball-and-socket joint at the neck (x1)
  • Rotating hinges at each shoulder (x2)
  • Swivel joints at each bicep (x2)
  • Hinge joints at each elbow (x2)
  • Swivel joints at each wrist (x2)
  • Swivel joint at the waist (x1)
  • Swivel joints at each hip (x2)
  • Hinge joints at each hip (x2)
  • Swivel joints at each thigh (x2)
  • Hinge joints at each knee (x2)
  • Hinges at each ankle (x2)

I don’t understand why, when Superman is a flying character, he didn’t get mid-torso articulation. It would have made for better flight poses. As with the other figures in the line, there is no rocker ankle. I can get some dynamic poses, but not as good as I would have gotten with the rocker.

Superman009Superman008Superman011Superman017Superman018Superman015

The trinity looks quite amazing all together.

Superman020Superman019

There are no character specific accessories, which is a bummer. He does come with the pistol grip for the collect & connect grapnel.

Superman021Superman022

Breakdown:

  • Playability – 3 out of 5. I really like the feel of this figure and he is one of my favorite DC characters. That said, a figure alone, does not make a very playable figure. Some sort of accessories would have been nice and limitations in the articulation are a little disappointing.
  • Packaging (formerly Collectability) – 4 out of 5. My only complaint about the the packaging is there is no bio. It is very displayable and quite attractive otherwise.
  • Paint and Sculpt – 3 out of 5. I love all the little details on the costume, but Mattel can’t seem to get a good sculpt of Cavill as Superman.
  • Standability – 4 out of 5. He stands pretty well, and, in a weird shift, the cape actually helps with some poses on this figure.
  • Articulation – 3 out of 5. 20 points is really nice, but without rocker ankles and a mid-torso articulation (which is more appropriate here than on Batman), I can’t get too excited.
  • Accessories – 0 out of 5. Another miss for Mattel. I am less concerned about finishing the collect & connect now, but it adds nothing to the figure itself.
  • Affordability – 5 out of 5. $19.99 is a good price point. He is affordable for collectors and casual fans alike.

Overall impression: 22 out of 35. Another low score for this line of figures. I really love Superman, and this figure isn’t horrible by any means. There just seems to be a lack of going the extra mile to make these knock-out figures. He does look awesome with the others and will make a decent addition to a collection.

Action Figure Maniac Reviews: MOTUC: Serpentine King Hsss

Masters of the Universe Classics: Serpentine King Hssss
Mattel
Retail: $20.00 @ MattyCollector.com

I was a HUGE He-Man fan as a kid! So, it pleases me to no end that Mattel has offered an adult collectors line of Masters of the Universe figures.

Their most recent offering is Serpentine King Hsss. He was highly sought after and the way Mattel approached his release was a high point of contention among collectors, BUT the wait and having to purchase outside of the subscription were well worth it!

His packaging is similar to the rest of the line. Its a beautiful blister pack that prominently displays the figure and some of the accessories. The colors are bright and nice to look at. The back is reminiscent of the 1980s line showing other characters in the line and giving us a bio of King Hssss.

KingHiss001KingHiss002

King Hssss is a pretty amazing figure. He is more ornate than the original torso that Mattel offered. We get a total of eight snakes with this one (including his main head) compared to the five on the original. We also get a new lower body that gives us snake-type legs. The scales on the body are fantastic and the way the snakes wind through each other at the mid-torso is a nice touch.

KingHiss003KingHiss004

Articulation points on this figure are a little lower, but for good reason – six of the eight snakes are bendable and poseable. Standard articulation count is 10:

  • Swivel joint at base of neck (x1)
  • Swivel joint at waist (x1)
  • Rotating hinges at each hip (x2)
  • Swivel joints at mid thigh (x2)
  • Hinge joints at each knee (x2)
  • Rocking hinges at each ankle (x2)

The joints at the ankle are a bit soft. So, dynamic poses can be a bit tricky, but can still be done.

He comes with five accessories: a Snake Men shield, a spear, a mace, a sword, and a newly sculpted snake head that can be used on the original King Hsss figure.

KingHiss010KingHiss007KingHiss008KingHiss009

Compared to the new Club Grayskull He-Man, he looks really good.

KingHiss005

Breakdown:

  • Playability – 5 out of 5. King Hsss is a definite hit when it comes to playability. The bendable articulation of the snakes and his size make him a formidable opponent for the Masters of the Universe.
  • Collectibility – 5 out of 5. The blister pack on these figures is great! The figure looks beautiful, you can see some of the accessories, and the bio is awesome!
  • Paint and Sculpt – 5 out of 5. Very nice. I don’t find any glaring problems. The scales are nicely done and I love the way the snakes wind around each other.
  • Standability – 4 out of 5. His soft ankles give him a bit of a deduction here, but I still wasn’t disappointed.
  • Articulation – 5 out of 5. Although he only has 10 points of standard articulation, the bendable snakes are a home run!
  • Accessories – 5 out of 5. All of the accessories are character appropriate and the inclusion of the new snake head was nice.
  • Affordability – 5 out of 5. $20.00 is a decent price for a collector’s figure these days.

Overall impression: 34 out of 35. Ohhhhhhh! Just shy of a perfect score! I think King Hsss is a great addition to the collection. He definitely appeals to hard core fans and casual fans should be able to afford and enjoy him too.

Action Figure Maniac Reviews: Transformers: Masterpiece: Hot Rodimus (Hot Rod)

Transformers: Masterpiece: Hot Rodimus (Hot Rod)
Takara
Retail: $74.99 @ BigBadToyStore

I am SUPER excited about this review! Takara’s Masterpiece Transformers line has been the Transformers collection of my childhood dreams. I never owned Hot Rod as a kid, so I love that I now have this one!

This Hot Rodimus, aka Hot Rod, is the second release of this figure from Takara. The first version was bigger and, with a few adjustments, became Rodimus Prime. I, unfortunately, do not that version yet.

This version is smaller and is designed to fit into the newer scale AND into Optimus Prime’s trailer. Sadly, he does not convert into Rodimus Prime.

The packaging is fairly standard for the Masterpiece line. It’s dark and sharp. The front gives great views of the figure in robot and car modes. The back is in Japanese and shows a lot of the figure features and accessories.

HotRod001HotRod002HotRod003HotRod004HotRod005HotRod006

Hot Rod himself is pretty amazing. He’s fairly detailed in both modes.

In car mode, he is pretty screen accurate as far as I can tell. His colors are bright and vibrant. The chrome pipes, chrome engine, and orange headlights are really cool. The blue windshield is see-through and you can see some kibble through it.

HotRod007HotRod008HotRod009HotRod013HotRod010

Transforming into robot mode was easy enough I could figure it out without the instructions. He looks beautiful! His face looks really nice and I like the way he comes together to make a screen-accurate Hot Rod. My complaint here is mostly at the chest and shoulders. Some of the pieces don’t fit flush and stand out.

He has 33 points of articulation (these do not include articulation for transformation):

  • Swivel joint at the neck (x1)
  • Hinge joint at the neck (x1)
  • Hinge joints at each shoulder (x2)
  • Swivel joints at each shoulder (x2)
  • Swivel joint mid-bicep (x2)
  • Hinges at each elbow (x4)
  • Swivel joints at each wrist (x2)
  • Hinge joints at each wrist (x2)
  • Hinge joints to each hand (x2)
  • Swivel joint at waist (x1)
  • Hinge joints at each hip (x4)
  • Hinge joints at each knee (x4)
  • Hinge joints at each ankle (x2)
  • Hinge joints at each heel (x2)
  • Rocking ankle hinges (x2)

HotRod014HotRod015HotRod017

He comes with a few cool accessories. He has two guns, a circular blade hand attachment, and a fishing rod. The guns can be attached in car mode in two ways.

HotRod016HotRod019HotRod022HotRod012HotRod011

To top things off, he has a couple of built in features. He has a fold down visor and his chest opens to hold the Matrix of Leadership (not included).

HotRod018HotRod021

He looks nice next to the other figures in the line. He stands just a bit taller than the other Autobot car figures, but is smaller than Optimus Prime.

HotRod024HotRod025

Breakdown:

  • Playability – 5 out of 5. Hot Rodimus is amazing! His playability knows only the bounds of the imagination. He is easily posed and his transformation is fairly easy.
  • Collectibility – 4 out of 5. The packaging is nice. The multiple images give some nice shelf appeal. It could only be improved by book-style type packaging displaying what’s inside the box.
  • Paint Applications – 5 out of 5. Beautiful! The colors are awesome and they duplicate the screen character well enough that I can’t find any obvious differences.
  • Standability – 5 out of 5. I love it! His rocking ankles make for easy standing and dynamic battle poses.
  • Articulation – 5 out of 5. You can’t complain about 33 points! I like when a figure can move freely enough to be fun and life-like.
  • Accessories – 4 out of 5. He only comes with 4 accessories. They are character appropriate, but he would have been awesome with his own Matrix.
  • Affordability – 4 out of 5. $74.99 is a little more pricey than some might like, but this is a high-end, well-made figure. He’s worth it!

Overall impression: 32 out of 35. That’s a great score! Hot Rodimus is a good, solid figure. The upgrades the Masterpiece line give him are well worth the effort for collectors. Casual Transformers fans would be happy to have him too.

Action Figure Maniac Reviews: Mattel: DC Super Hero Girls

DC: DC Super Hero Girls
Mattel
Retail: $9.99 each, Target Exclusive

The newest additions to my collection are the Target exclusive DC Super Hero Girls figures. If you aren’t in the know, DCSHG is a franchise created by DC Comics that centers around some of our favorite female DC characters as they grow up and face the challenges of youth and having super powers. There is a series currently on YouTube and toy lines are on the way.

Target stores are offering some exclusive toys based on the franchise. They will have 12″ dolls and 6″ action figures. The first series of figures includes Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Bumblebee, Batgirl, Poison Ivy, and Harley Quinn.

The packaging is quite attractive. The front of each card gives a beautiful picture of each super hero and the figures are nicely displayed in action poses. Each character gets a unique stamp in the lower right hand corner. The back of the cards gives a brief series description and a bio for each young lady.

SuperHeroGirls028SuperHeroGirls046SuperHeroGirls047SuperHeroGirls048SuperHeroGirls007SuperHeroGirls049SuperHeroGirls014SuperHeroGirls050SuperHeroGirls001SuperHeroGirls002SuperHeroGirls036SuperHeroGirls051

Each of our heroes comes fairly detailed. They have beautiful, Disney-like faces. Their costumes, while not comic book accurate, are really cool and character appropriate.

Each figure has 13 points of articulation:

  • Ball-and-socket at neck – x1
  • Rotating hinge at each shoulder – x2
  • Rotating hinge at each elbow – x2
  • Swivel joint at each wrist – x2
  • Rotating hinge at each hip – x2
  • Rotating hinge at each knee – x2
  • Swivel joint at each ankle – x2

First up, Wonder Woman!

She’s a pretty nice looking figure. Her costume is fairly simple, but the stars down the sides of the leggings and the wings on the boots are awesome! She comes equipped with her Lasso of Truth which if nicely sculpted to look as though she is about to lasso someone. It attaches to her belt, but disappointingly, the sculpt makes the rope stick out behind her.

SuperHeroGirls030SuperHeroGirls032SuperHeroGirls031SuperHeroGirls033SuperHeroGirls034SuperHeroGirls035

Next up, Bumblebee!

Bumblebee might possibly be my favorite of the series. Her costume is pretty cool and she come with a backpack from which her soft-plastic wings spring. The bits of blue contrast with the yellows and look nice. She doesn’t come with any accessories, but the backpack is removable.

SuperHeroGirls022SuperHeroGirls025SuperHeroGirls023SuperHeroGirls026SuperHeroGirls027

Next, Batgirl!

Batgirl is neat. Her costume is fairly reminiscent of her comic look. I am not sold on the hood/cowl. It looks odd, but is removable. She also comes with a bat-shaped removable backpack. She has no other accessories.

SuperHeroGirls009SuperHeroGirls010SuperHeroGirls011SuperHeroGirls013SuperHeroGirls012

Supergirl comes next!

She is easily my least favorite. Her costume is full-on Supergirl and her soft-plastic cape is removable. My biggest complaint with her … she WILL NOT stand up. I was lucky to get these pictures. Even with the cape removed, she is difficult to stand. I think she is hair heavy, and then with the cape attached, she falls like crazy. There is also something about her face I don’t like. She looks doofy.

SuperHeroGirls016SuperHeroGirls017SuperHeroGirls019SuperHeroGirls018

The first villain is Poison Ivy!

I really like Ivy. She seems to have the most Disney-esque look of all the figures, but she has some nice detail. Her hair is beautiful and the “vines” on her legs and her rose belt are nicely done. She comes with a really cool soft-plastic climbing vine accessory that can be moved where you want it.

SuperHeroGirls003SuperHeroGirls005SuperHeroGirls006SuperHeroGirls004SuperHeroGirls045

Last, but not least, is Harley Quinn!

Harley doesn’t disappoint. It’s not my favorite look for the character. I like the jester look best, but this fits for a teenage girl better. Her face is really pretty and her shirt is done really well. In true Harley fashion, she comes with an over-sized mallet, which is pretty sturdy.

SuperHeroGirls038SuperHeroGirls041SuperHeroGirls039SuperHeroGirls040

My favorite feature on these figures is their hands. All of them have soft-plastic, yet sturdy, hands. On some, the fingers are beautiful and really delicate looking.

SuperHeroGirls043SuperHeroGirls044

Breakdown:

  • Playability – 4 out of 5. These are awesome action figures! I like the feel of the figures, but getting some nice, dynamic super hero poses can be difficult.
  • Collectibility – 5 out of 5. The packaging is so attractive on these. The figures are nicely displayed and the colors are really sweet. I like the individual bios.
  • Paint Applications – 4 out of 5. Paint is pretty solid, but if you look, you’ll see some uneven lines, especially on faces/masks.
  • Standability – 2 out of 5. Supergirl RUINED this one. Some of the others were only slightly difficult to stand, but she was awful. Considering the back of the card explicitly states they stand on their own, I am disappointed.
  • Articulation – 4 out 5. 13 points is nothing to be bummed about, especially considering the audience for these figures. Ankle articulation would have been a really great addition so you could get action poses. Also, the neck joints are a bit stiff.
  • Accessories – 2 out of 5. The figures have only a few accessories between them. I really like the ones included, but a group of young girls needs more to do!
  • Affordability – 4 out of 5. $9.99 is a good price point. It might be a little steep for younger children who are fans though.

Overall impression: 21 out of 35. Mattel’s DC Super Hero Girls are really nice action figures. I would have been a bit more happy if I could pose them better and … SUPERGIRL! I really like these. They will look good in any collection and the kids will like them too!

Action Figure Maniac Reviews: Eaglemoss: Star Trek: Future Enterprise NCC-1701-D

Star Trek: Future Enterprise NCC-1701-D
Eaglemoss
Retail: Varied, Secondary Market

I sang the praises of Eaglemoss in my last review. So, I will only mention here that the selection of ships in their Star Trek: The Official Starships Collection has me a happy geek!

This review will cover another of their premium subscription offerings – the future Enterprise NCC-1701-D. From what I have read, this was a free item offered to subscribers in the UK only. There might be two version. I am unsure which this is.

The Future D comes in the standard OSC packaging. A blue box with a molded clear plastic cover.

FutureEntD001FutureEntD002FutureEntD004FutureEntD005FutureEntD003

The ship itself is quite beautiful. There are some really nice details. The aztec pattern is a bit dark for my tastes, but it is a nice edition.

FutureEntD008FutureEntD009FutureEntD011FutureEntD015

The added structural details: strut fins, phaser banks, third warp nacelle, phaser canons, and phaser lance are all well done.

FutureEntD007FutureEntD010FutureEntD016

My only complaint about this offering, and it could be unique to mine, is that there are gaps in the nacelles near the Bussard collectors.

FutureEntD006FutureEntD012

When compared to the regular Enterprise-D, you can see the darkness of the aztec pattern, but the ship looks nice next to its younger self.

FutureEntD013FutureEntD014

Breakdown:

  • Playability – 5 out of 5. The future Enterprise-D has good weight and feels nice in the hand as you fly it around your room.
  • Collectibility – 5 out of 5. The packaging on this one makes for an awesome display and, as it is a subscriber gift, not everyone has it.
  • Paint Applications – 4 out of 5. I really like the paint apps on this … except for the dark aztecing.
  • Standability – 5 out of 5. She comes with a stand specifically designed to hold her in place. I forgot to take photos, sorry.
  • Articulation – N/A
  • Accessories – N/A
  • Affordability – 4 out of 5. As this is, for non-UK customers, a secondary market item, the price will vary. I paid a little less for this than the Borg Cube.

Overall impression: 23 out of 25. Eaglemoss’s future Enterpise-D is a solid piece. My only complaints are the aztecing and the gaps at the nacelles. The playability and details are really nice. If you are collecting this line, or are a fan of the future D, you should pick this up!

Action Figure Maniac Reviews: Eaglemoss: Star Trek: Borg Cube

Star Trek: Borg Cube
Eaglemoss
Retail: Varied, Secondary Market

Eaglemoss has been wowing me with their Star Trek: The Official Starships Collection. The detail and selection are amazing! I never thought we’d get a collection of Star Trek ships so vast.

One of their offerings is the Borg Cube! It was offered as a premium subscription gift. There are two version: UK release and Japanese release. This review is for the UK version.

You won’t see pictures of packaging here. It was a simple white box and I couldn’t see myself taking photos of a white box. That would be ludicrous.

Out of the box, the Cube is fairly nice looking. It has grey panels with sections cut out that display white backgrounds. The white sections are a bit disappointing, but they do have a purpose.

BorgCube001BorgCube002

When the Borg Cube is turned on, it has a really cool light-up feature.

BorgCube003BorgCube004

The panels are a bit flimsy, but when I picked up the Enterprise-D for comparison photos, I was reminded that many of the ships have light, flimsy plastic sections. I was afraid to apply too much pressure when unscrewing the battery cover none-the-less.

BorgCube008BorgCube007BorgCube006

There is no true scale in this line, but the Cube is quite a bit larger than the Ent-D.

Breakdown:

  • Playability – 5 out of 5. This has play written all over it, despite it being a collector’s piece.
  • Collectibility – 3 out of 5. The plain, white box packaging is disappointing. The other ships come in nice display boxes. That said, this is an exclusive offering and I had to find mine on eBay.
  • Paint Applications – 3 out of 5. The grey is appropriate, but there is no shading or variation. They could have made the paint apps a little more dynamic. The white, cut-out sections are distracting when the Cube is off, but are brilliant when on.
  • Standability – 4 out of 5. It’s a cube, it stands well. Ha! A stand would have given this a boost though.
  • Articulation – N/A
  • Accessories – N/A
  • Affordability – 3 out of 5. This is, for non-UK customers, a secondary market item. I found the price I paid affordable, but you may not.

Overall impression: 18 out of 25. Eaglemoss’s Borg Cube is a nice piece. There could have been some improvements, but the lights make it a really cool display when turned on. Collectors will be pleased.
