Action Figure Review: Hockey Player from Imaginext Collectibles Figures Series 10 by Fisher-Price
Height: 3 1/8ths inches
Articulation: Hinged hips, swivel/hinge shoulders, swivel wrists, and a swivel neck
Accessories: Hockey pads and a hockey stick.
Non-Scalper Price: $3-$4 dollars (but I paid a buck!)
* The headsculpt is going on. The Hockey Player kind of has a curly, 1970s sideburns and hairstyle going on. Especially with the stache he's rocking. He kind of looks like Ron Burgundy. The expression is slick and I like the inclusion of the missing teeth in his grin.
* Like most other Imaginext figures, the Hockey Player is solid, durable, and features the full articulation model for the line. He's also taller than the other figures, too, because he is wearing ice skates. To be honest, that's a very cool detail.
* The Hockey Player's hockey stick is a cool accessories. It's simple but very recognizable. I like the wood coloring of the plastic.
* The Hockey Player has some great detail but there is no paintwork on his torso to bring out those details. It makes him seem kind of dull.
* The Hockey Player's hockey pads and helmet are all one piece but they look oversized and misshapen. This series really seems to have had a problem in creating nice looking "armor" overlays for the figures. Not sure what's going on here but hopefully it gets fixed in the future.
The Hockey Player is an Eh and a 1/2 figure. There's nothing really wrong with him but he's just not terribly exciting to me. The skates, hockey stick, and headsculpt are cool but the uniform is pretty dull. Series 10 has a few cool standout figures but this one isn't one of mine.
