Ragin' Thing Review!

First review on the blog here. Going to eschew the usual format of telling about the history of the line, my thoughts on the movie the figure is from, etc etc etc and just get down to basics. Here's my review of the Fantastic Four movie series 3 Ragin' Thing figure.

-Excellent. I'd waited on getting a Fantastic Four movie Thing action figure mainly because the first two were pretty bland. This one has a great personality on his face, he really looks like he's about to clobber someone.

-Good. Better in person than in my pics for sure. If you don't like Toybiz' usual paint apps you won't like this, it's not quite artful but it's a nice job for a toy that's designed to be *played with* in my opinion.

-Good not great. He's missing some points that would make him a truly exceptional figure. Mainly, the lack of any articulation between the waist and neck I don't mind, but no boot cuts or cut wrists hampers his posability a bit. Otherwise he has the usual Toybiz hinge & swivel neck, ball shoulders, bicep swivels, hinge elbows, hinge wrists, swivel waist, ball hips, double knees, swivel ankle, hinge toes.

-Excellent. Here you get a whole extra figure, a wire frame figure of Mr Fantastic. His paint and sculpt are somewhat poor, but hey, he's a pack-in.

-Recommended. This is easily the best figure of the Thing released in the movie line so far, and I don't see any coming down the pike that will beat it. Well worth the $7.
