Action Figure Review: 4 Arm Alien from Imaginext: Collectible Figures Series 6 by Fisher-Price
Height: 3 1/8ths inches
Articulation: Hinged hips, swivel hinge shoulders, swivel wrists (upper arms only), and a swivel neck.
Accessories: Breathing mask/ jetpack combo.
Non-Scalper Price: $3-$4 dollars
* Obviously, it's a pretty big positive that this figure has four arms. We've received a few other aliens in the Imaginext Collectible Figures line but this is the first one with more than two arms and I'm really digging it. Each shoulder has a swivel/hinge joint while the upper arms also have the standard wrist swivels.
* The 4 Arm Alien has a few really cool features, particularly his headsculpt. His skin is a great electric yellow with just a tint of green that has an odd, pruny texture to it. He also has a mouth filled with some crazy looking teeth. Yikes! To cap things off is an odd tri-crested helmet over his head with three eyes peaking out.
* The 4 Arm Alien only includes one accessory: A breathing mask of some sort that slides over his head and rests on his chest. It's an interesting piece that definitely helps to make this guy look a bit more fearsome, although a paint app or two on the mask would have been nice.
* The other side of the breathing mask that slips over the alien's head seems to have a jetpack of some sort. It has some nice detail but the shape of the jetpack and the flatness of the mold just lack charisma.
I've reviewed quite a few other figures from the Imaginext Collectible Figure Series, including:
