Minifigure Review: Monkey Tiger from Imaginext Collectible Figures Series 12 by Fisher-Price
Height: 3 1/8ths inches
Articulation: Hinged hips, swivel/hinge shoulders, swivel wrists, and a swivel neck
Non-Scalper Price: $3-$4 dollars
* Here's a quick look at the greatness of Monkey Tiger. Who is he? Where did he come from? Who knows? He's just really, really cool looking. I love the orange and black stripes and the simple blue outfit. Again, it makes me think of a mechanic's outfit and something futuristic, but I;m not sure why. Still, this guy has a lot more pizazz than most other series 12 figures.
* The headsculpt is cool and looking at it gives you a nice glimpse at the simian nature of the figure. He definitely looks like a monkey of some sort. He has a cool expression with eyes darting to the left and a crooked wry smile.
* The Monkey Tiger has the same articulation as most other figures in the line. They're great fun to play around with and make great toys for younger kids, too. My 5 year old really likes them as they stand up easily, yet you can still move them around a bit and get them into some fun poses. They're very durable.
* Not only does Monkey Tiger have cool stripes on his arms but he also has a tail. It's striped and looks rather bushy. Is that right for a monkey tail? Who knows? It's very cool, though, and pops right out of the back of his suit.
* The Monkey Tiger comes with a really cool staff. Without the blue part on top I'd think it was a weapon of some sort, maybe a mace or staff. The blue energy effect looks quite cool but it seems rather too "organized" to be a random energy effect. It seems more like a magical staff or scepter. What's the purpose? I'd really be curious to hear about the design process of this toy!
Clawtron robot and the Robot from "Big" are cool figures, too, but they don't edge out the Money Tiger. Part monkey. Part tiger. Part mechanic. Part street mage. Part ThunderCat. Monkey Tiger is all things to all people and he's definitely the figure from series 12 I'd most enthusiastically recommend. Pair him with the Series 4 Space Gorilla and you've got a pretty cool. pair. Maybe we'll get more of this interesting crew in a future series. Come on Series 13!
