Action Figure Review: Callix from Masters of the Universe Classics by Mattel
Height: 7 3/8ths inches tall
Articulation: Swivel ankles, boot swivels, hinged knees, swivel thighs, swivel/hinge hips, swivel waists, hinged abdomen, swivel/hinge shoulders, swivel biceps, hinged elbows, swivel wrists, and a ball jointed head.
Accessories: Ax and shield.
Non-Scalper Price:$26-$28 dollars
* By and large Callix has the same great, sturdy articulation that most other MOTUC figures have. The only thing he's missing are ankle hinges. Due to the new stone feet he's a bit more limited in his movement. Of course, these also help to make him a bit larger than other figures, which is quite cool.
* This sculpt is awesome! Seriously, Callix is one of the best looking MOTUC figures I've seen. He really looks like he's made out of rocks or is a living statue. The headsculpt is incredible and really gives him a fearful, stern demeanor. The Horde emblems on his chest and belt buckle nicely tie him in with the Horde despite not having a typical Horde color scheme.
*I really like how Mattel handled Callix's design. To give him a bulky, rocky look they utilized a number of overlays that augment the standard body sculpt. These really look good and help him to still fit in with the general aesthetic of the line while still allowing him his own unique vibe. This really turned out great.
* I love Callix's ax and shield/1 They're both cast and painted to mimic his own color scheme and feature some great sculpting. The ax looks really, really brutal and definitely makes Callix appear like a tank for the Horde. The shield is a tad small and almost seems a bit funny being wielded by a guy made of stone. Still, it does look cool with him.
*I really don't have any. I guess I would have liked more motion in the ankles, but it's not really that big of a deal.
