the Joker or Harley Quinn.
As soon as I heard about this wave I assumed that the Jester would be my favorite figure just because I tend to gravitate to creepy, scary stuff. Was I right? Is the Jester the star of series 6? Read on and find out after the break...
Height: 2 7/8ths inches
Articulation: Hinged hips, swivel/hinge shoulders, swivel wrists, and a swivel neck.
Accessories: Jester's mask and scythe.
Non-Scalper Price: $3-$4 dollars
* The Jester is rocking a ruffly, baggy outfit with a red, black, and purple color scheme. There's also an Imaginext "i" logo on the little symbol emblazoned across his chest. The face is very cool as it has a white and black checkered pattern to it. Fisher-Price does a great job on the face printing for Imaginext and this guy is as neat and clean as you'd expect.
* Check out those shoes, man. That's what I'm talking about!!
* I really love this mask! Not only is there actually a nice level of detail on it but the face is also given a silver paint application to help give it a bit more presence. It's definitely kind of creepy. My two year old loves masks and calls this a "Halloween mask" but I'm not sure if she's completely comfortable with it. She'll put it on the figure but immediately bring it to me to remove it.
* Usually the head and armor pieces for Imaginext figures are extremely snug but that's not the case with the Jester. His jester's helmet is actually a bit loose and tends to flop around a good bit. I don't know that I've experienced any other Imaginext figures with this problem before but I've noticed about three in series 6 with ill-fitting headpieces.

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

Definitely creepy. I dig this one!ReplyDelete
Me too. He fits in pretty well with the various monsters from the Collectible Figures line. My little one hates the mask, though. She always makes me take it off the figure and now it's not allowed in her room.Delete
This one impressed me in layers: First he was neat, next (as I inspected the details), he was awesome, and then finally...the ideas came rolling in. He really strikes me as one of those crazy interdimensional badguys. Someone who appears out of nowhere to make things tough for the heroes and disappears in a flash. The skull on the scythe really brings it home! I'd love to know the story behind the idea of this figure.ReplyDelete
That skull scythe is so MOTU. I really, really hope Mattel someday makes the jump and starts releasing MOTU Imaginext.Delete
