Action Figure Review: Inkling Boy from World of Nintendo by Jakks Pacific
Height: 4 inches
Articulation: Boot swivels, swivel/hinge knees, H-hinged hips, swivel/hinge shoulders, double swivel/hinge elbows, swivel wrists, and a swivel head.
Accessories: Ink gun and backpack.
Non-Scalper Price: $10-$12 dollars
* The Inkling Boy has quite a bit of articulation, although not all of it's useful. I'll get to that in a minute, though, as the arm articulation is pretty good and allows you to put the Inkling Boy into some cool poses.
* The headsculpt on the Inkling Boy is pretty cool. It's very colorful and just a bit funky. The hair on the back is interesting, too; it's actually similar to squid tentacles.
* Inkling Boy is also wearing a cool shirt. The print on it is really neat and clean and helps to bring some more life to the figure.
* The shoes are really cool, too. The paintwork is pretty sharp. I'd love a pair of shoes like this.
* This looks like a Super Soaker, but it's actually one of the ink blasters from the game. I like the design and the color scheme.
* The Inkling Boy also has a removable backpack that carries the ink. It even has measurement lines and everything on it.
* The biggest problem with this is the oddly designed lower body articulation. It's really tough to get this guy to stand up, particularly when he's wearing the ink pack. Ball jointed ankles really would have helped to keep him steadier.
You know what? Even though I'm not too familiar with this guy he makes a Great addition to the World of Nintendo line. The Inkling Boy is a pretty unique looking character and while I'm more interested in the classic Nintendo properties, I'm glad they're putting out some figures from newer properties. Jakks can be all over the place with articulation in this line, but the great paint work and cool accessories help to make this guy quite a winner.
I haven't reviewed anything else from Splatoon but I have reviewed plenty of other World of Nintendo figures, including:
Gravity Suit Samus
Link (Ocarina of Time)
Link (The Wind Waker)
Link in Goron Tunic
White Tanooki Mario
