Exclusive 2 out of 3
Now I’m going to review my second SDCC exclusive figure- Shredder:
I really like these exclusive figures and their boxes. The design of this box gives it a high collectible value, and there’s no way I’m throwing it away anytime soon.
The figure is the same size as the basic figures that Playmates Toy been releasing. As you can see here, the main differences are the removable helmet and shiny, metallic armor that Shredder wears.
Shredder really is not a looker though…
The armor is really shiny and really cool on the figure. However, the figure is very flawed. It has very limited articulation points unlike the regular figures. Also, it cannot stand without the base it came with. The figure is basically a display piece even though Playmates Toy make it intractable with other Turtles figures.
Here are shots to compare this special Shredder figure with the regular Shredder figure:
Overall, the figure is pretty awesome. However, I just can’t help it but feel that it’s such an awkward figure. Also, the stand it comes with only has one point on it, so you can only choose one foot to put on the stand. That’s not something a good figure should do, and it really is a shame.
