|Articulation - ***1/2
DC Direct pay attention - Space Ghost has 16 excellent points of
articulation, including ball jointed shoulders and an excellent neck joint
design that allows his head to face forward while in a flying
position. This type of work makes the 7-9 points that are the norm
for DC Direct figures pale in comparison.
Paint - **1/2
You need to try to watch for the eyes on these though - the paint work on
mine wasn't quite perfect, but when you are buying on clearance, you don't
get as many choices.
Excellent! Space Ghost comes with an extra set of hands, a set of
note cards (little plastic cards actually), a coffee mug and a terrific
desk/chair set just like on the show. Where are the accessories with
the current releases from DC Direct? Certainly nothing even close to
Value - ***
At $20, the figure was pushing it. Yep, the articulation is great,
and the accessories excellent, but still it wasn't bad. Now, you can
find them at most comic shops and toy shows for under $15 - I picked this
one up for $9.99 at an Electronics Boutique. Nothing like waiting
for prices to drop to get an even more excellent value!
Overall - ***1/2
This is a fantastic comic book super hero figure. There have been
very few done this well, and this faithfully to the source material.
I've not always been impressed with the work of Art Asylum, but this time
around they really hit a home run. Too bad we haven't seen any of
the other characters from the show produced, but at least we got the
definitive Space Ghost.
