Smurf a Priest? Zabra Hexx is here to help !



Do you smurf a priest?

Warcraft have many priest and Zabra Hexx may be able to help Gargamel on his smurf hunt.

Sorry...wrong priest in the smurf world.

But Zabra Hexx is indeed a priest in the World of Warcraft and whether how good he is, I will not be able to answer you here. For here, he shall display his best for his details and paint job, sculpt.

Zabra Hexx is blue and the outfit which he is wearing is majestic with high shoulder design to show his status. Injecting a sense of fear with the tribal hunted heads and bottles of potion hanging from his belt while carrying a Egyptian style staff to carry out his rituals.

Striking a great pose, you can forgive the lack of articulations for you to tweak around.

For amongst the Warcraft Priest, Zabra Hexx is one not to be missed!

AIM Soldier of Marvel



It has been quite some time since I posted any Marvel Legends figures and that does not mean I have given up on them. Today, I have the AIM soldier from the Captain America wave and in my opinion, he can be the best figure of the lot although he is just a regular army building character.

Dressed all in yellow but he has lots to show. He came packed with 2 weapons, a rifle and a pistol, and both looks futuristic with details.

He is also strapped with a grenade belt across his chest and wears a bucket shape headgear. To me, it looks more like a biological suit that seems to come for some chemical cleaning.

The mesh details on the eyes of the headgear added a supreme touch to the gear.

However, the cowboy boots which is wearing looks out of place for this AIM Soldier unless the is die-hard Texas Cowboy. But his outfit was done for the Starlord in the Imperative boxset for Guardians of the Galaxy, not the movie edition Starlord.

As for pose-ability, he handles very well for both of his weapons and able to do a kneeling position for his mission.

Amongst the pack, he can be easily outshine but he is more than meets my eyes. Probably yours too!

Who is Lo'Gosh in the World of Warcraft?



As to who Lo'Gosh is in the World of Warcraft, I shall leave it to your discovery over this site which can explain better than I do. But for here in Daily Toyz, Lo'Gosh is presented as an action figure which is designed by DC Unlimited and has a great stance of a fighting warrior.

He somehow reminds me of Conan or He-Man, probably of his gear and image projected. Well, you can always double him up as a barbarian character or gladiator to fit in your collection.

As he still maintains the great detail standard from series of Warcraft figures, however, mine suffered from a quality control issue. Everything is fine but I am unable to detached his sword handle to be placed in between his right hand to complete the stance.

Since he has a grabbed knuckle, I might as well leave him as it is then risk breaking his sword. Unfortunately, he does not come with any straps on the hips which I can hang his weapon.

Other than what was highlighted, everything is great with this figure for his details, posture and paint job,

Putting this aside, Lo'Gosh is quite a hefty figure and added with some serious details for his facial expressions and gear. There is one weak area that I feel is the lion crest done for his buckle, it looks the lion's head was not done larger to bring up the significance.

The only articulations are both of his knees where you can turn them for better balancing purposes only.

As always, this is another Warcraft figure that kept to it's standards for many fans and collectors to assume.

A She-Elf in Warcraft.......Valeera Sanguinar

 

For the real fans of Warcraft gaming, she is no stranger but to people outside World of Warcraft, Valeera Sanguinar is a very attractive figure.

For many of Warcraft characters, their names are not easy to remember for general public and it may get on your nerves trying to recollect their identity.

Fortunately, many have an animal association features or some mystic creatures which we know in many fantasy stories.

For Valeera Sanguinar, she is an Elf and that makes her outstanding especially she is made to be what a She-Elf is expected of. Donned in red costume and posing in a fighting stance, many cannot missed her outright!

The key thing as always in DC Unlimited Warcraft figures is minimum or non-existence of articulations and I would say, the posture which has been fixated on Valeera Sanguinar, is dynamic as it is. You do not need articulations in her but she do have 2 turning points on her right wrists to twist her holding blade and let elbow for minor posing purpose.

With that, you are practically left to admire this figure with your imagination as she is.

She do have sloppy paint jobs done on her face, hair, chest and trimmings of body armor. All can be forgiven for that she is a She-Elf, isn't it?

In the way she has to pose, she cannot "survive" without a pair of transparent disc bases stuck onto her feet to give her balance and fall free.

Putting aside her flaws which can be overlooked if you are not a perfectionist, who do not welcome a Rogue in Elf form?

If you ever get these Warcraft figures, they will surprise you more than they are in the box.

Redeem your Wings.....Spawn

 

In the alternate realities of Spawn, the wings of redemption brings forth the flight of Spawn in his angel wings for salvation.

How does that work out to be?

Well, let just see what Spawn has to offer in this reality featuring his wonderful pair of very detail and nicely sculpted wings, which are incredible and made of flexible material. They have toned it with some brown washed to make it worn and if this pair of wings are to be on Marvel Angel, it will also be fantastic too.

Knowing Spawn figures, he is basically posed and there is not much of articulations you can play around but he is already well posed and a conversation piece even though he is only 6 inch tall compare to his bigger twin at 12 inch.

For a relatively great price, he is hard to pass and I had to let him shine.

A Priestess in War......Sister Benedron of Warcraft



Running in the series of Warcraft figures that I have acquired, Sister Benedron is not one of the favorite figures which I have to get but to due to some bundle opportunites, she just has to fall into place.

For figures in the Warcraft line designed and produced by DC Unlimited, you will just have to open them them up to appreciate the art behind them and only then, they will be able to WOW you.

Upon close examination, I would say, she has a cross feel of a Roman statue and Indian fashion in her. The black color skin choice is not the influencing factor but it is more on her clothing, posture and the pair of wings.

Though she is not articulated in any way, she is well posed with satisfying paint job to enhance her features.

I have took the liberty to modify the emblem which is hung in the front and move it to her dress on her back. The weapon is now detached and let her hold on her hand in the posture.

If you are looking for articulation in this figure, it is always disappointing but details says it all. I do not recommend paying a high price for her unless you terribly desires her.

Overkill in Spawn Classics



When Spawn action figures are in full force driving insane details in the market, they have accomplished a high level in the year 2001. In that year, Spawn series 20 was born and a deluxe box in this series is Overkill.

The sheer size and details packed in this figure is superb even until today's standards. He is one juggernaut of Spawn that smells power.

The color and tone washing are very well executed which he has a some bionic metal growing in him which covers from his chest how. He has 9 articulations and was not given the knee joint that he shall always remain in a squat position. May be practicing on some kungfu stance.

He also features 3 hand cannons on both arms which can be hidden on his left arm, while the right arm is fully extended. The chains are also additional decoration for him and you can either wrapped them round his hand to make a tougher appeal for a punch or at your imagination. For accessories, he still have his signature parking meter as the choice weapon for some serious damage.

For an early 2000 action figure, he still live up to a great collection and still smashes on for more good years to come as some things will never be the same in the future.

What is Tavru Akva?

 

Who and what is Tavru Akva? Does Warcraft rings a bell?

If you do not play Warcraft, I believe the name makes no sense to you, likewise to me. But that does not matter here in Daily Toyz. Here lies another interesting and menacing figure that is worth investigating even if you never knew him.

Since Warcraft line of figures have been taken over by DCDirect on the design and production, many characters have surfaced and many have are known to be detailed in their design.

As I do not play the game and looking as a collector angle, this is an awesome figure to discover.

Putting aside his responsibility in the game, he is solely based on a walrus and ironically, his weapon is a spear made of fish head bone. It  is very realistically designed and done with strings loop with hooks to add to his usage. The wood texture adds to the realism of it.

The awesome details are displayed through the pictures which I have taken and for many who have known this line of action figures, they are basically statues with limited articulations. In this case, Tavru Akva has only 2 wrists articulating for the adjustment of his spear holding.Which means, for the rest of his life, he is stuck in this javelin position and he did spectacularly well.

Details and paint job are the major strengths of Tavru Akva and you will not be disappointed with him since he do carries some weight.
 
Overall, a great piece to add to your collection especially for adult collector who displays their toys and he should come reasonably priced compare to figures like that Iron Man.

Supergirl to the rescue!



Amongst the few Supergirls that have been released, few make it to the hall of fame in the line but many still welcome another Supergirl to their collection, provided she is not hideous looking.

This is Supergirl from the Return of Supergirl produced by DcDirect in 2006 and one that is quite good in some angles of appreciation.

She possessed some awkwardness in her facial makeup and a little too slender body but her head sculpt with a swaying hairstyle are nicely done.

The paint job is not good as there are many blemishes especially between the yellow and blue color combinations along the rims of her top, wrists and belt area. The "S" sign is painted cleanly in my case.

So far, most Supergirl figures are unique in their own styles, unlike Superman who has a general outlook for most and if you are looking for the one Supergirl, this may not be the ultimate one to get but if you like her style in this design. Why not!
