Packaging - ***1/2
Have I mentioned I like the clamshells? I'm glad we'll see something similar
with the Palisade's Muppets line starting with the next series. Too bad
the text on the colorful insert is so skimpy.
Sculpting - WOD ***1/2; Redeemer ***; Domina
It's important to point out that only WOD has any new sculpting, with his
wings. Redeemer has a smaller backpack, but that's not really part of the
The Redeemer sculpt looks fine, but suffers from
being an older Spawn figure, with less detail than more recent releases.
WOD gets extra points because it's a repaint of a figure that was already one of
the better ones, with some very nifty new wings. The sculpt is great, with
plenty of detail and a great design.
Domina's sculpting detail is good, although
she's my least favorite of the warrior angels. Her big problem is the
awful pose that's been selected, which is supposed to imply motion, but simply
looks painful. It also makes it extremely hard to get her to stand on her
Paint - WOD ****; Redeemer ***1/2; Domina ***
In general, the paint application is clean and neat. There are little to
know issues with the lines, over spray, bleed or inconsistency.
WOD stands out due to the excellent use of a
wash to bring out the sculpting details. I wish there was a little more
color somewhere on him, but that's a very minor complaint.
Redeemer is adequate as a repaint, with some
unique color choices. I like the light blue of the body, and the gold is
eye catching and sharp.
Domina's colors are the least attractive, at
least for me. I prefer the original color scheme, but at least the paint
work is clean.
Articulation - Redeemer ***; WOD **1/2;
None of these figures do particularly well when it comes to articulation.
That's not due to a lack of joints, but a lack of useful joints.
WOD has neck, shoulders, right cut bicep, cut
forearms, hips, and cut calves. It sounds like a lot, but most of the
joints only allow for the most basic of movement and positioning. He does
stand just fine on his own though.
Redeemer has neck, shoulders, left elbow, hips
and knees. Again, most of the joints (like the elbow and knees) have an
extremely limited range of movement.
Domina has the most articulation, and gets the
worst score. She has neck (very limited due to the hair), right shoulder,
right bicep, right wrists (nothing on the left arm!) chest, cut thigh, and cut
calves. Even with the leg joints, she has an extremely tough time
standing, and you have to get her in just the right pose. The only really
useful articulation is in the right arm, where you can do a little posing with
Accessories - WOD Bupkis; Domina ***1/2;
WOD and Redeemer come with zippo, unless you count the real metal chain with
Redeemer. Of course, it's not removable so it doesn't count as an
accessory in my book. So how did Redeemer get three stars? I'm
counting his light up feature here, since he's the only one with a special
feature like that. It works pretty well too, but the separation between
the chest and the emblem shows up a little too much when you light up the
arm. The redesigned the box in back to be smaller, which is certainly a
Domina has three accessories - a very cool
sword, knife and shield for her arm. The shield snaps on nicely, and the
knife fits on her belt. The sculpts are good, and they are decent
Value - WOD **1/2; Domina, Redeemer **
Considering that these are just repaints, $10-$13 is really way too much.
Even WOD, who at least gets some re-sculpt work, is stretching the value factor.
Overall - WOD ***; Redeemer **1/2; Domina **
This series is pretty much thrown in to make a few more bucks off old
molds. I'm not a big fan of repaints in general, but if you missed any of
these the first time around they may be worth it to you. The Wings of
Redemption Spawn is the nicest of the lot, and will look good on the shelf next
to the original. His score would be better if you weren't paying such a

entire set, that's less than ten bucks each. They also have a couple of
