Action Figure Review: Crash Test Dummy from Imaginext Collectible Figures Series 5 by Fisher-Price
Height: 2 7/8th inches
Articulation: None. He's rubbery.
Accessories: Traffic cone
Non-Scalper Price: $3-$4 dollars
*I always start with the positives, so I cannot deny that this is a nice looking minifigure. He retains the standard Imaginext style regarding his proportions and such while still having a body reminiscent of a real life crash test dummy (he also looks just a bit like C-3PO). The paint applications are pretty neat and clean and he (or she) has a very plain, expressionless facial expression.
* So...the Crash Test Dummy is not built like a regular Imaginext figure. It is instead simply a solid piece of rubbery plastic. I was really shocked when I opened this figure as I assumed it would have the same articulation as every other figure in the line. I'm not opposed to Fisher-Price trying something unique with a figure (different figures have different needs) but this guy isn't even a bendy toy: He's just rubbery. He really can't sit properly in any Imaginext vehicle that I own nor can he interact much. He's a big rubbery mannequin. I have to admit that I'm pretty disappointed in how he turned out as I had high hopes for him. I can kind of see what Fisher-Price was going for but the execution just feels very underwhelming.
I've reviewed five other figures from this series so far: Cyclops, Chinese Warrior. Genie, the Fly, and the Ghost.
