* While she's a fairly simple figure I do like the general concept of the figure. The Female Backpacker Camper is a simple "regular" person figure clad in a red longsleeve button-up shirt and blue jeans. Maybe a little basic but that's ok; I think she fits in well with the adventure themed line. Some people also think she's based off of Abigail Arcane Holland from DC Comics. Interesting thought, so she'd pair well with the Swamp Thing figure. Add a few extra accessories and you can do a lot with her.
* I like the headsculpt and the paintwork for the eyes and mouth. There's a lot of character here, particularly due to the painted on expression and the white hair. She seems like a fun character no matter who you use her as.
* I'm always happy with the quality and the articulation on these little figures. While they're only about 2 7/8ths inches, they remind me a lot of some of the various toylines of the 1980s and 1990s due to the random character selection, the durability, and the accessories.
* This backpack isn't new to this figure, as I mentioned above, but it's still a cool accessory. Not only is a rugged backpack always a neat extra but the fact that this one has a sleeping bag, a coil of rope, and clip for storing an extra item.
* We're already at the negatives, huh? Yup. This figure is definitely lacking in the cool features area and, unfortunately, there are lots of faults with it. First up are the sleeves: They don't match the shirt. You often find colors not matching on toys like this but the Backpacker's sleeves and shirt really clash.
* Notice anything missing? Yes, the Backpacker comes with a backpack that has a clip for an extra item but there's nothing to put there. Nothing. I remember when these figures used to seem more well thought out but this last series has felt somewhat haphazard. Having a holster, sheathe, or a clip with no accessory to go in it is one of my biggest pet peeves!
Kind of disappointing, huh? The Backpacker is another Eh and a 1/2 figure in this series. I'm really curious what Fisher-Price was going for with this figure. For years the Imaginext Collectible Figures Series always seemed really well thought out and clever, but this serious has some figures that just feel lazy. Why not at least give her a torch or the machete from the Jungle Explorer? Remember when the figures used to mostly have cool armor and overlays that changed their appearances? Yeah, me too. This is, sadly, another Eh and a 1/2 figure.
