Action Figure Review: 2-Headed Monster from Imaginext: Collectible Figures Series 10 by Fisher-Price
Height: 2 7/8ths inches
Articulation: Hinged hips, swivel/hinge shoulders, and swivel wrists.
Non-Scalper Price: $3-$4 dollars (but I paid a buck!)
* The 2-Head Monster has a very appealing character design. The yellowish-green skin is quite cool as is the gray battle armor. I've mentioned in a number of reviews that Imaginext often seems to pull elements from Masters of the Universe (Fisher-Price is part of Mattel, after all) and while you may initially think of Two Bad, the Monsters's right head and skull and crossbones belt reminds me of Trap Jaw.
* The Imaginext figures are very sturdy and feature swivel hinge shoulders and hinged legs. While the heads usually swivel, the 2-Headed Monsters heads do not. That's not a huge deal, though. This is still a fun, high quality action figure that stands up straight on your display shelf and is a blast to play with.
* Here's a closer look at the headsculpts. I love how the right head (with the metal jaw) is glancing over at the left head. The left head has a great lopsided grin and a cool armored helmet. It's a very archetypal 2-headed fantasy creature but it still has a unique design that helps it to stand out a bit.
* The double bladed battle axe is great. It is the kind of weapon that looks like it would fit right at home in Masters of the Universe or in any Dungeons & Dragons campaign.
* I wish the armor had a bit more color to it. I like the gold skull and crossbones but that gold would have also looked great on one of the wrist bracers or on the rivets on the chest armor, too.
