and series 6's Chicken Suit and Dino Mech. Lego already released a Hot Dog Guy of their own but now Imaginext takes a whack at this concept. Ready for a foot long review of a real weenie? Then join me after the break...
Height: 2 7/8ths inches
Articulation: Hinged hips, swivel/hinge shoulders, swivel wrists, and a swivel neck.
Accessories: Hot Dog costume
Non-Scalper Price: $3-$4 dollars (but I paid a buck!)
* I kind of like the expression. He kind of looks like Dick Grayson, doesn't he? That's definitely the vibe I'm getting. I definitely appreciate the fact that Fisher-Price actually uses unique sculpts on these figures.
* Like most other Imaginext figures, the Hot Dog Guy is solid, durable, and features the full articulation model for the line.
* The Hot Dog Guy's hot dog suit is vital to the figure's appearance as, without it, he is just Guy. It's an overlay made from a softer plastic that slides over the figure's torso and features a large hole for the figure's face to peer out. It also has a mustard streak painted across the hot dog that has a little Imaginext "i" swirl in it.
* Without his costume on, the Hot Dog Guy is really boring. He's just plain ol' Guy in a red and white shirt with a homemade Imaginext "i" shirt. Kind of dull, really. Oh, he's also wearing jorts, which is apparently now socially unacceptable for any male who isn't John Cena or Tobias Funke. I don't wear shorts at all, so it's not an issue for me, but I'm still kind of baffled by all of the hate jorts get.
I had high hopes for the Hot Dog Guy but, ultimately, he's kind of an Eh and a 1/2 figure. The hot dog suit doesn't fit right, the underlying figure is extremely plain, and the lack of some kind of cool or silly accessory for the figure to hold is disappointing. He should have been one of the "red hot" figures of this series, but he turned out to be a real weenie.
