* If you read this site regularly, you know that packaging has to be pretty special for me to bother mentioning it. The Worst has some incredible card art and is absolutely worth mentioning. Featuring illustrations of the characters by Ed Repka, a prominent illustrator of album covers, these cards really bring these characters to life. Without this art and a glimpse into the "idealized" versions of The Worst, I don't think these figures would have half the appeal they do.
* There's not much expect from these faux retro action figures except for solid feeling swivel joints and durable plastic. X-2 hits the mark on both accounts. Every figure in this series does feel like a high quality product that could serve as a children's toy. You know, if the package didn't warn buyers that these aren't for kids under 15.
* While the front of X-2's outfit is kind of plain, the back reveals not only a life support backpack of some sort but what looks to possibly be a mechanical brain. Is X-2 really a robotic bounty hunter? The paintwork here is really good, especially considering there are lots of little switches and dials.
* X-2's pistol is incredibly cool. It looks like a revolver of some sort with but instead of a cylinder it appears to have six separate barrels. It kind of reminds me of a weapon that would have been part of Hasbro's C.O.P.S. and Crooks line.
I really like X-2. While he initially might look kind of plain, the fact that he has all of that technological junk on his back is pretty cool. I love his backpack ans his pistol, as they add a really futuristic aesthetic to him. He's a Great and while he's not horror themed enough to make it into 31 Days of Toy Terror, he's still a pretty cool figure if you dig this style of toy.
I'm going to be reviewing the other five figures in The Worst's Midnight Special set during 31 Days of Toy Terror and Re-Halloween, so check them out there.
