What's going on, welcome back to another toy review. This week we will be taking a look at Sinestro from the McFarlane Toys DC Multiverse Collector Edition. McFarlane Toys, a subsidiary of Todd McFarlane Productions, is a company founded by comics creator Todd McFarlane that makes highly detailed model figurines of characters from movies, comics, popular music, video games, and various sporting genres.
Before we open this up, let's check out the packaging.
Starting at the front of the box, we have a nice big window that lets us see the figure and everything he comes with. The top of the box also lets us know that the figure has 22 points of articulation. Along the left side of the box, we have the McFarlane Collector Editon logo letting us know that this figure is a part of the collector edition line. The bottom of the box has the DC Multiverse logo and Sinestro's name. Turning the box to the side we have the DC Multiverse logo, The figure's name as well as where this figure comes from, The Sinestro Corp's War. The back of the box gives us some artwork of Sinestro, this is the same artwork that is used on the trading card that comes inside the box. Turning the box around one more time we get a small window that lets us see the figure.
INSIDE OF THE BOX:
Let's take a look at how the figure comes packed inside.
Taking Sinestro out of the box we can see him and everything that he comes with. The figure and all his accessories are plastic tied into the trey. Behind the figure, we get his figure stand.
OUTSIDE OF THE BOX:
Let's open the box and take a closer look at the figure.
Now that Sinestro is free from his plastic prison we get to see all the details that McFarlane Toys put into this guy. He is covered in details all over. It is also good to note that this is not the same body as the other Green Lanterns we have gotten in the past, He is a brand new body mold.
Let's see what kind of accessories the figure comes with.
Sinestro comes with a yellow light construct. A DC Multiverse base (this base has a silver DC logo unlike other figures who have a black logo). His collector card comes in a stand. Sinsistro also comes with his yellow lantern battery.
How can we pose the figure? Let's find out!
SINESTRO'S ARTICULATION INCLUDES THE FOLLOWING:
DUMBBELL JOINTED NECK - allows you to turn the head 360 degrees as well as make the head look up and down a little bit.
BALL-HINGED SHOULDERS - These give the arm 360-degree rotation and also the ability to raise and lower the arm.
UPPER BICEP SWIVEL - This cut lets you turn the whole arm below the cut 360 degrees.
DOUBLE-JOINTED ELBOWS - This allows you to bend the arm over 90 degrees.
BALL SWIVEL HINGE WRISTS - With this, you can turn his wrists in a full 360-degree circle while also bending them up and down.
DIAPHRAGM SWIVEL - This lets you turn the figure around 360 degrees at the diaphragm.
BALL JOINTED WAIST - This lets you be able to turn the figure around 360 degrees at the waist.
HINGE JOINTED LEGS - With this it allows the legs to move out to the side along with some front and back motion.
DOUBLE-JOINTED KNEES - The joint allows you to bend the leg itself back to the butt of the figure.
BALL JOINTED ANKLES - The ankle hinge allows you to bend the foot front and back and also to the left and right.
TOE JOINT - This allows you to bend the toes up so you can pose the figure a little better when making him look like he is running or walking.
How does the size of this figure compare to others?
Sinestro stands right around 7 inches tall. Here he is standing next to two Green Lanterns, Hal and Kyle.
What are Baby Huey's scores for the figure?
PAINT JOB 5/5 - The paint is well done on this figure, still don't think it's $30 worth of paint, The Collector line is marketed as a line that has premium paint. Sinestro has good paint but not anything more.
FIGURE SCULPT 5/5 - The body is a brand new sculpt and it works so well for Sinestro.
POSING 4/5 - You can get him in just about any pose you want, however, with the ball peg for the head it's hard to get him looking up in a flying pose
ACCESSORIES: 3/5 - I feel like he should have come with more, he comes with the same amount of stuff as the $20 figures. We shouldn't have to pay $10 extra for a card stand that no one wants.
DURABILITY 5/5 - The plastic is nice and strong, and won't be breaking anytime soon.
OVERALL SCORE 4.4/5 - The figure is good, and he is a must-add for any DC Collector, however, he isn't worth the price, wait for a sale if you can.
RETAIL COST: $29.99
