Minifigure Review: Flesh Pack C from Gorelords by Violence Toy
Height: Around 2 inches
Non-Scalper Price: $12 for the set of 3 or $40 bucks for the entire series of 12 figures.
*Murdroid is probably one of the more unique looking figures in the series simply because he's a short little robot. This guy is armed to the teeth (well, he would be if he had teeth) with a massive chainsaw arm, a sickle arm, and a giant spike on top of his head. The chainsaw arm is a bit floppy, but it didn't come bent so it looks OK.
* I love the spikes on Murdroid's back. Imagine Murdroid ramming backwards into some helpless fool. He'd be going Oprah on everyone: "You get a spike, and you get a spike, and you get a spike: Everyone gets a spike!" Yikes! This guy is essentially a mobile Mortal Kombat fatality machine.
* Quantum Wolf is a cool cyborg wolf who's now missing half of the flesh and fur on his body. The sculpting by Violence Toy is once again really sharp here and looks fantastic. I love the difference between the regular body and the robotic side. I also like his weird spiked hand. And the teeth. Those teeth are incredible.
* Flip this guy around and you can see more of the grisly details you saw in the front.
* While having two heads is a bit unusual, Ichor is actually one of the more normal looking figures in the line. He (They?) is a cyclops and actually looks like he could fit in pretty well with Masters of the Universe, particularly due to the weapon choices.
* There's not anything to crazy going on behind this guy, but that's OK. The sculpting on these figures is really impressive and even simple details are quite sharp and clean. The poses are all really good, too. There is definitely some action, but none are overly preposed where they look awkward on display.
I'm really liking Murdroid. In fact, I think this might be my second favorite set in this series. These are some really well done minifigures and they make for a really fun pickup. Violence Toy has really done a nice job of capturing the spirit of minifigure toylines that have come before with something unique and new. These are really cool and definitely worth a look for collectors of little rubber guys. They're a bit pricier than your average minifigure, but they'e still a Great set.
I've reviewed two other sets from Gorelords over the past few days, and I'll be finishing out the series soon. Check out the list of November posts on the side to find all of the Gorelords reviews!
