Keldor) who wears ancient Gar armor. And now he's a POP! vinyl! Let's check this guy out after the break...
Height: 4 inches
Articulation: Swivel head
Non-Scalper Price: $10-$12 dollars
* Sy-Klone is bright, bold, and decked out in primary colors! I love how he stands out on the shelf. Like most other POP! vinyls he has a swivel head so you can pose him a bit. Of course, you could spin his head all the way around to try to replicate his tornado action feature. This would have been a really cool figure to add a waist joint too, wouldn't it? Alas, we didn't get one.
* The headsculpt is just fine. It's a pretty basic looking face, just in blue. That's accurate to Sy-Klone, though. He's also wearing his armored, samurai inspired with the red ring around the brim.
* I love the work on the body, particularly the funky radar pattern on Sy-Klone's chest. It was a cool feature on the original figure but it was a lenticular there. This is just a simple painted detail but it still looks pretty cool.
* I really like this cool little planetary logo on Sy-Klone's belt buckle! It's a great little detail from the vintage figure that has been faithfully recreated here. This could have easily just been a simple red buckle but it's nice to see Funko put some more effort into it.
* Red and yellow paint often tends to bleed and there's quite a bit of paint bleed on Sy-Klone, particularly on the red rings on his helmet and boots. It definitely hurts the usually clean aesthetic of a POP! vinyl when it happens.
Moss Man, Sy-Klone gets us a step closer to having the 1985 Heroic Warriors in POP! form. Now bring on Roboto!
The only other Sy-Klone item I've reviewed on the site is the 200x inspired Sy-Klone head from the MOTUC Heads of Eternia pack.
