Packaging - ***
Appropriate packaging is used with this line. The graphics are
great, and the boxes sturdy. Sure, you have to tear it up to get to
it, but this is a kid's line, not a collectors line.
Sculpting - ****
The small figures were good, but the sculpting is excellent on the large
figures. It's a perfect likeness, and the details on the outfit and
body are great.
The only flaw is that he has a bit of a tough time standing. With
such small feet and such a large body, finding the center of gravity is a
bit tough. But with the decent articulation he has, you'll be able
to find the sweet spot with a little work.
Articulation - ***1/2
Speaking of articulation, McToys has done a great job. No, there
aren't any ball joints, but the cut joints are well used. Shoulders,
elbows, writs, hips and ankles are all jointed, and allow for a variety of
Accessories - Bupkis
The only negative to this figure is the decided lack of accessories.
Something for him to hold or use would have nice.
Talking Feature - ***1/2
The talking feature on this figure is great. He has seven sayings
directly from the movie. They are clear and easily understood, and it
sounds just like Mike Myers. There's no muffling or distortion, and
the lines are great.
Value - ***
At $20, these were a decent value. An accessory or two would have
been nice, but still not a bad value. But at $10 or less, this is a
fantastic deal. Don't wait for 75% off - if you can find one for
$9.90, grab it.
