This one’s so big, it has a table of contents!
The Hellboys I got from Entertainment Earth, I bought Prince Nuada at a Newbury Comics, and the rest were trades. The first one is Magnokor from the Inhumanoids, then the two Hellboy figures, then Mr. Wink, Nuada, and Lucifer from Dark Alliance (Lucifer’s standing on the Moore Collectibles action figure display base, which was produced way back in 1999 and seems to be extremely hard to find these days).
The Hellboys are interesting. They’re not as nicely produced as the 2004 movie line, despite using almost all the same molds. The trenchcoats are very rubbery this time, and the paint is sloppy in places. But the Big Baby gun is awesome, and I really like finally having a shirtless Hellboy with a plastic coat.
While I wasn’t as enamoured of Hellboy 2 as I was the first film (for various reasons not necessarily related to the quality of the film itself), and I don’t collect 3 ¾” toylines, I have to say that this is probably one of the coolest SDCC exclusives this year. It’s a 7″ Golden Army Soldier, in scale with the rest of the 3 ¾” figures, and it even comes with a Hellboy to mix it up with.
At $30 the set is pricey, though keep in mind, the Golden Army Soldier is the same size as Mezco’s regular 7″ figures, and those exclusives usually averaged about $25–plus you get the Hellboy.
Mezco’s award-winning 3.75inch Hellboy line continues with the addition of the highly anticipated Golden Army Soldier! The Golden Army Soldier stands approximately 7 inches tall (in scale next to the other figures in the 3.75inch series) and features eight points of articulation. He comes packaged with a 3.75inch Hellboy, who comes complete with a base, and his legendary sidearm, the Samaritan. Ships in Late July 2009.
Michael Crawford reviews the Hot Toys Hellboy II: The Golden Army Hellboy 1/6-scale figure. Excerpt: “Hot Toys is sort of like Pixar these days – it’s hard to judge them on the same scale as everyone else, because their work is so far above the competition.”
