Action Figure Review: Female Pilot from Imaginext: Collectible Figures Series 6 by Fisher-Price

  Our journey through the sixth series of the Imaginext: Collectible Figures continued with this line's only female character: The Female Pilot. It's not a very creative name but neither are the names of most of the other Imaginext figures. Some folks are calling her Amelia Earhart, which is pretty cool too although I don't think that's an official name. The Imaginext Collectible Figure Series has had plenty of figures that pay homage to both real life individuals and fictional characters, so it seems completely plausible that that's what Fisher-Price had in mind. Let's take a closer look at this possible tribute to the Queen of the Air? Then join me after the break...

 The Facts:

Height: 2 7/8ths inches

Articulation: Hinged hips, swivel/hinge shoulders, swivel wrists, and a swivel neck.

Accessories: Bomber jacket and propeller.

Non-Scalper Price: $3-$4 dollars.
 The Positives:

* Amelia (I'm not going to sit here and call her "Female Pilot" because that's boring) is really nicely sculpted. I love her textured flight jacket, the stitching on her boots and pants, and her cool goggles. The paint work is excellent and she has a great grin befitting of a daredevil!

 * Amelia's accessory is a bomber jacket with an attached parachute pack for those times when she has to make a hasty exit. It's just a sculpted element of the overall ensemble but it looks pretty cool.

 * Here's the front of the parachute pack that resembles a bomber jacket with straps, buckles, and an Imaginext "i" logo on the left breast. It's a cool piece and Amelia is able to sit while wearing it, which is a nice touch. Is there a good Imaginext airplane for her to fly?
 The Negatives:

*Amelia also comes with an accessory that's kind of a dud: A propeller. It's not a poorly sculpted accessory or anything, but it's just kind of... useless? She can only hold it by grasping the middle hub and it just seems kind of dull. I mean, did pilots run around carrying propellers?
   Amelia is a really cool looking Imaginext figure. Her propeller accessory is kind of boring but the figure is really cool. I love early 20th century adventurers and she's a great example of one in the fun Imaginext style. The sculpt and paintwork is top notch. Also, I imagine that she can be used in a variety of Imaginext settings. Heck, you could even use her as Roxy Rocket in your Imaginext DC Universe. She's a Great collectible figure and a fun addition to the growing roster of females in Imaginext.

  1. Loved this one! Really great addition to the line. I kinda thought of the propeller as her only defense against whatever she's up against in her travels, after her plane crashed. You know after she went through a trans-dimensional portal and had awesome adventures in her own TV show on Saturday morning!

    ...maybe I've put too much thought into this.

    1. That's much better than my idea that this is an extra from an episode of Legends of the Hidden Temple and the propeller is the artifact that the Purple Parrots are trying to rescue.

    2. They probably would have too, if it wasn't for that dang Shrine of the Silver Monkey! Only three pieces, and yet it always seems so hard for them to put together...

    3. I know, right! I always watched them struggle and just got stressed out! It's like when you're watching someone play a videogame and they're just not even able to do the most basic tasks. I just want to pull the controller out of their hands! I always felt the same way watching those kids struggle with the stupid, three piece silver monkey. How hard could it have really been?


What'chu talkin' 'bout?
