* I really like the sculpt on Arsenal. It nicely fits in with the other figures in DC Collectibles' variety of New 52 themed sets but still has a look that fits the art of the book. Roy's not wearing anything too elaborate; heck, he could have just thrown together everything red he owned. The paintwork is neat, clean, and features a variety of different shades, which makes the all red outfit more interesting.
* I love that Arsenal is sporting a plethora of arrows. He's got a huge quiver on his back and a smaller quiver on his right hip. It'd be nice if they were removable, but they're not. The arrows (permanently molded into the quivers) looks great though. You can see some fine detailing on the feathers thanks to a dark wash and nimble sculpting. The small pouches on the hip quiver are cool, too. I bet Roy keeps Kit-Kats in there.
* I'm loving the work on Roy's tattoos. His left arm has a tattoo of a bird of some kind with the word pesadilla above it. That means nightmare in Spanish! On his right shoulder is a scorpion with the word "poison" and a skull that looks like he has a goofy hipster mustache. It's actually a bow and the skull it supposed to have arrows coming out of it in a few different directions.
* I have to admit that I love the fact that Roy can actually hold the bow, arrow, and bowstring. It's not a perfect look, but very few archery themed figures can do this.
*While the figure is showing off a ton of arrows in both of Arsenal's quivers, it would have been nice if Roy came with more than one arrow. How cool would it have been if at least one or two arrows from each quiver were removable accessories? What's an archer without a bunch of arrows he can fire to turn the baddies into pincushions, anyways?
* Roy's a bit...stiff. He has a decent amount of articulation and, while you can still get his arms in an archer appropriate pose, he just feels too stiff to be dynamic and super-heroic. I think this figure really needed a bit more leg articulation and either a swivel waist or a ball jointed torso.
DC Collectibles did a stellar job with Arsenal. While he's a bit stiff and a bit light on arrows, he's a well sculpted figure with great quality control, nice paint work, and an articulated hat. Seriously, that little joint just blows my mind. While Roy Harper as Arsenal is getting a huge push on Arrow lately (well, that's what everyone watching it tells me, anyways) if you haven't given Red Hood and the Outlaws a chance since early in the title's life, give it a chance. Things really start to pick up around the third trade paperback and I think you'll be impressed by it. Overall I'm quite happy with this figure and I'm giving it a Great rating. Now that he can be had for around $15 bucks, he's a great buy.
While I own Jason Todd as the Red Hood, I never reviewed him on here. I did review Starfire though.
