*Yes, while Evil Seed is missing lateral ankle rockers and boot swivels, he's still incredibly poseable and durable. MOTUC are absolutely some of the best toys available on the market and anyone with any imagination at all should have a blast posing him in a variety of evil stances!
* I love the headsculpt on Evil Seed! It really does a great job of capturing the spirit of the MYP redesign while still making it work in the MOTUC styling. His eerie red eyes, mouth slits that reveal some pulsing power inside, and vine like hair just work together to create an amazing villain. There are also so many new parts on this figure! The shoulder spikes are incredible and the chest piece that features Evil Seed's plant based musculature is just really top shelf work.
* The vines all over Evil Seed's body really give the figure something extra. I love the vines that run from his waist piece to his knees. They don't hinder the hip articulation much at all and look really, really cool.
* Evil Seed comes with two great accessories: A creeping vine creature and the Scepter of Power, a Filmation accessory. The creeping vine is my favorite as it has a grear sculpt and ca actually wrap around Evil Seeds arm. It isn't bendable but it is pliable so you can tweak it a bit to make it work in a variety of poses. The Scepter of Power is really an accessory more for Randor but it works just fine for any character who would look good with a mystical magic wand. Give it to Evil Seed, any other hero or villain, or store it in Castle Grayskull. The choice is yours!
Callix was incredible, Evil Seed is exceptional, and the upcoming figures all seem to be winners, too. There's some excellent sculpting and paint work here and I feel that Evil Seed definitely warrants a Great and a 1/2 rating. He's not as cool as Callix, but he's close. While he's sold out on MattyCollector.com right now, you can probably still find him on the secondary market although it will cost you. He's worth having, though, and really stands out .
