31 Days of Toy Terror Lives: Headless Horseman from Imaginext: Collectible Figures Series 7 by Fisher-Price
Height: 2 7/8ths inches
Articulation: Hinged hips, swivel/hinge shoulders, swivel wrists, and a swivel neck.
Accessories: Jack o' Lantern headpiece and sword.
Non-Scalper Price: $3-$4 dollars
* The sculpt on this guy is awesome. Rather than making the Headless Horseman truly headless, Fisher-Price went with a translucent green head and arms to represent his ghostly body. That was a great idea! I love the mysterious green skin with the dark brown and black 18th century military gear. This guy is one heck of a figure.
* Whether you're collecting these yourselves or buying these for the kids, you can appreciate that Imaginext figures are really well built. The articulation feels sturdy and you can have quite a bit of fun with these. My little one loves playing with these and so do I. They're just fun toys overall.
* Not only is the Headless Horseman portrayed with green, ethereal skin but his ghostly body also glows in the dark! Yup, out this guy under the lights for a few minutes and you can then use him to find your way in the dark. OK, maybe the glow isn't that strong, but it's still a really cool feature.
* As you can tell if you look to the left or right of this review, I love jack o' lanterns and have no problems with plopping one on my head. That's another reason why I'm so crazy about this figure: That jack o' lantern headpiece! It's so cool! It's attached to a flowing black cape and even has the little Imaginext "i" as the clasp.
* This is a pretty slick sword. I love the look of it. Major props given that it's molded in a nice silverish plastic, too!
* The paintwork on the pumpkin and the cloak is a bit iffy. There's a lot of slop here for this being such a simple piece.
