Today I'm looking at the last action figure in the first series of IAmElemental: Fear! I've been spending a lot of time reviewing the IAmElemental line but if you're unfamiliar with it, then check out this review where I discuss in detail this cool new line that launched on Kickstarter in early 2014. There is a lot of reuse in these figures, so some elements of these reviews are a bit short since I've covered the same ground a few times now. Each figure come packaged in a blind bagged style bag but with a checklist on the back. The checklist was marked with the identity of the figure inside so you know who you're getting. I'm not sure if these will be revealed like this at retail, but it certainly seems like a good idea. While the other six figures in this series were all based on more overtly positive elements of courage (Bravery, Energy, Honesty, Industry, Enthusiasm, and Persistence), Fear is listed as an element of Dark Matter. Is Fear a villain? A dark, necessary anti-hero? Just another element of courage? I guess it's up to you to decide. Fear's bio card states: "Fear spreads the impulse to run away and hide. She has the ability to stop a moving object in its tracks." Ready for a closer look at Fear? Then join me after the break...
Height: 4 1/4 inches tall
Articulation: Swivel/hinge knees, ball jointed hips, swivel/hinge shoulders, swivel/hinged elbows, and a ball jointed head.
Accessories: Removable shoulder pads, snake gauntlet, Fear elemental shield, two collectible cards, and a drawstring storage bag.
*I'll simply say again that the overall presentation of these figures is rather nice. I'm extremely pleased by the quality of the articulation and the durability of the figure. These figures are really well made and just have a great vibe about them.While everyone else in the line is bright and vibrant, Fear's darker color scheme definitely gives her a unique looks. She makes a great villain or anti-hero for the team.
*While they're easy to pose, they are a little tough to stand in action poses. That's not an uncommon problem with any action figures but I do wish these figures had some peg holes in their feet. I've actually been using her shield to stand her on the shelf. It doesn't work perfectly, but it's better than nothing.
