Packaging - **1/2
The nicest thing about this figure is the packaging. Okay, maybe not
the nicest, but damn close. The box has some great text, and fits in
with the general tempo and emotion of the show.
Of course there are a couple warnings on
the front that don't make too much sense - choking hazard? I suppose
you could tear the third eyeball off the figure if you pulled hard
enough. And 'components to be assembled have sharp edges'?
What components? What assembly?
Sculpt - ***
Hey, it looks like Nibbler! The sculpt is decent, although I don't
know why two of the three eyes look in one direction, while the top eye
looks straight forward. Overall the sculpt is adequate, and it
captures the look of the character.
Value - *
Twenty bucks? This thing is like those solid, hard plastic banks we
had as kids. With no articulation, and not even a coin slot cut in
the back of the head, this baby is headed for Media Play 50 percent off
Paint - **1/2
The paint ops aren't bad, although the white on the eyes on mine was a bit
sloppy, and I looked through several to pick one that had the iris's
centered well. Considering the size of this item, I'd expect better.
Articulation - Bupkis
Accessories - Bupkis.
Not a single point. I didn't expect much, but arms and neck would
have been at least nice.
What can you say. Nothing with him except the twisty tie that holds
him to the insert. A cloth cape perhaps? Some dark matter
would have been nice. But we get zippo.
Overall - *1/2
I rarely dislike anything quite this much. But I think that MAC
really has done us a disservice here. Add arm and neck articulation,
a cloth cape, and maybe an accessory or two and this would have been
great. But the quality of this item certainly doesn't warrant
anything near twenty bucks.
