Finally I can post my @wickedcooltoys
Gengar review!!! After hunting around the two towns I live between I decided to go to yet another city's Meijer in hopes they'd stocked this new wave. They came up short, as did Walmart. But to my surprise, the little @gamestop
there had freshly stocked all four INCLUDING Gengar! I literally busted a move in the store and had the other customers strongly side eyeing 😂😂😂
For who it is and the price point, this figure is near perfect. It's the perfect color of purple and the sculpt is absolutely there. I should have taken a picture of the back, as the spikes look great. The teeth and mouth work so well and the paint is fairly clean. Now don't get me wrong, I wish the eyes were sculpted, but the paint on them is spot on so it's not so bad. The tongue action feature is pretty cool, works best when the figure is pressed against a flat surface. And while just a 360 rotation, the arms moving independently gives it a lot of character.
If you're familiar with the Tomy Mega Gengar you can see how nice this Gengar is, though the Tomy one is definitely small.
...well according to the Johto Dex... no. But as I was telling @alyeleleleleleleleleleleley
earlier, scale wise I'm aiming for anything bigger than 2.5 inches most times. For me this fits well with my Figma and SHF trainer figures as well as other Pokemon. I've been playing a lot of Pokken on Switch lately and I feel that Gengar is around that size in the game, at least according to the other Pokemon I have figures of that feature.
Being that Gengar is an absolute OG and has massive popularity, this figure just may be the hottest Wicked Cool Toys has done yet, and I think they knocked it out of the park. One of my favorite things about collecting Pokemon figures is that feeling when something that I've known for so long only digitally is suddenly in front of me and tangible, and when it works with other figures in tandem... it's just the icing on the cake!
