Woodland Mystic from series 8, the Centaur Horse Man is a blue mythological character who would fit well into a fantasy themed Imaginext series. Imaginext doesn't currently have a fantasy themed series on shelves but if they did this guy would work perfectly with it. Considering that he is blue, I've seen some online commentators suggest that he could be a tribute to the Na'vi from Avatar. That's a possibility. This guy doesn't look like him but he could also be somewhat inspired by Nessus from Disney's Hercules. Wherever the inspiration may come from, this guy is definitely unique. Let's check out the Centaur Horse Man after the break...
Height: 2 7/8ths inches
Articulation: Hinged hips, swivel/hinge shoulders, swivel wrists, and a swivel neck.
Accessories: Rear legs with hinged hips.
Non-Scalper Price: $3-$4 dollars
* I really do like the look of the basic figure here. The gold accoutrements, the dark blue tattoos, and the silver hair look really cool. The Centaur Horse Man definitely looks like he could team up with the Woodland Mystic as they have some similar fashion sensibilities.
* To make the Centaur Horse Man into a true Centaur, Fisher-Price packages him with the rear half of his body. The rear legs and back consist of a piece that snaps onto the figure's waist. The rear legs are hinged and feature the same furry hooves as the front legs of the standard figure.
* I'm always happy with the quality and the articulation on these little
guys. While they're only about 2 7/8ths inches, they remind me a lot of
some of the various toylines of the 1980s and 1990s or Playmobil figures due to
the random character selection, the durability, and the accessories.
* Rather than being part of the sculpt, the rear legs are a separate attachable piece that connects to the figure via a blue belt. Unfortunately, the belt becomes detached very, very easily. I really think Imaginext should have attached the rear legs to some armor that fits over the figure to help them stay attached a bit better. It's kind of odd that Imaginext has moved away from including the removable armor with the figures, as it was such an integral part of the look and feel of the early figures.
