Minifigure Review: Purple Pikmin from World of Nintendo by Jakks Pacific
Height: 2 inches
Articulation: Swivel head
Non-Scalper Price: $3.50-$5 dollars
* I really like the deep purple color on this Pikmin. The purple Pikmin look quite different from the other creatures as they are a but bulkier and have distinctive little head antennas, but they're rather cool.
* The leaf growing from the Pikmin's head (they're half plant/ half animal) is just a really nice touch. Visually, it adds a little extra flair to the sculpt and coloring of this small little guy.
* Since the Pikmin has such tiny little feet, it also comes with a simple clear plastic stand to help it stand upright. This was a good thought on Jakk's part as it'd be frustrating trying to keep this little guy upright without it.
* I really thought these guys were little non-articulated minifigures so I was actually pretty pleased when I learned that the Pikmin's head could swivel. It's not a major thing but it does add a bit to displaying this little fellow on the shelf.
I haven't reviewed any other Pikmin toys! I have reviewed plenty of the 4 inch World of Nintendo figures, though, including:
Gravity Suit Samus
Link (Ocarina of Time)
