Sightings > Jazwares Space Ghost Review @ Infinite Hollywood

Space Ghost

Over the last five years of this blog, I have occasionally bought figures I wouldn’t otherwise have solely for review purposes. This often turns out to be disappointing and the toy is quickly tossed into a storage bin.

I actually hit a couple Toys R Us stores this weekend, somewhat reluctantly looking for Jazwares’s new Space Ghost figure. If I’d seen it, I would have bought it. Fortunately, Newton Gimmick of Infinite Hollywood has gone where I boldly preferred not to go, so I can just refer you to his review and keep my $11 safely in my PayPal account. Thanks for taking one for the team, Newt.

Sightings > Space Ghost action figure by Jazwares

Apparently Jazwares is making a line of Hanna-Barbera toys, including this Space Ghost figure. Somehow I was completely unaware of this.

The SG figure seems to draw a lot from the earlier Art Asylum figure. It adds hinged wrists, which is good, but neglects bicep swivels, which is very, very bad, because it prevents you from doing the classic pose with the fingers touching the gauntlets as he fires. Frankly I’d rather have had that than the H-hinged legs. Sigh…anyway, I’ll still have to track this guy down, because I love Space Ghost.
