I really like this reviews, I say this every time, but it's true! I always see details of klickies I usually didn't want to buy that eventually could be of use, so thanks for sharing!

I suppose your wallet hates me by now... It's just their way, I guess.  :P

Great review Tahra, thanks! A few details I hadn't noticed before. Love that tan torso too, wow.

Always happy to read your reviews of the figures, Tahra! So many detail - thanks!

Those rubber bands got me angry too. What a waste, and so unnecessary.
I like those legs with ballerina shoes from the Ninja too, they look really great.
It's amazing what you did with the wrestler, what an original merman! Wonderfully done, genius!

Yeah.. BESIDES all the small bags. Gah. :(

I will tell my sister  ;D - using the mask for a merman was her idea - I only remembered the matching speedo mertail...

wonderful looking series, rubberbands are odd. They were annoying enough on the wings, I hope this is a fad that is short lived. Are they trying to make it harder to feel the contents?

Great conversion of the bat/vampire woman, much better.

I suppose you want the blue eyes of the nutcracker. You could always mask them and rub everything else off then use a beard to cover the lack of mouth. I think a better hair to use would be a white ponytail one then the chinstrap can be worn properly.
The green lady looks like she has handcuffs on, that belt print looks chain-like and those leaf cuffs finish the illusion.
The print and colour of the white knight's helmet makes it look like a Rebel flight helmet from Star Wars. I want the arms and legs of that figure though.
I really don't like the legs of the cyborg. In part because there are too many pegleg pirates, but also because a pegleg is just stupid for a cyborg, I'd expect a more robot looking leg and the old fashioned boot looks out of place too. I think the new arm looks great but would be better in a grey colour. As it stands the cyborg looks like a GI Joe figure from the 90s and that is not a good thing.
The gangster looks great, it would be better if it had round framed glasses or none at all and the mustache should be thinner and not droop but otherwise works well. The flapper can be given the tray to make a cigarette girl at some club.

They've used a mold originally for a gladiator which needs armour on the weapon holding side of the chest (shield protects the other side) for the archer which is why he's left handed.

Thanks for the review, this is one of the best series by the look of it...and yeah, that brown weskit looks awesome, would look great with those flowy white arms.

Where do the (new) shoes for the cavewoman come from? Also how did you replace them without damaging the figure?

 :-[  I looked up your post to make sure I had it right. I hope I did.  :-[

The only thing that I can think of is that someone has a rubberband factory, and knows SOMEONE at geobra.



Great conversion of the bat/vampire woman, much better.

Thank you :)   Still have no idea what's THAT supposed to be  ???

I suppose you want the blue eyes of the nutcracker. You could always mask them and rub everything else off then use a beard to cover the lack of mouth. I think a better hair to use would be a white ponytail one then the chinstrap can be worn properly.

The problem is the mustache - I would hate to clean it too, and it's so "high" and pointy that it shows under the beard... and I think it is unnatural that the klicky has no mouth  :-[ (yes, they did that, the lazybones  >:( )

You are of course right about the hair. It's like someone decides things without ever trying them on? Or is it relevant for the character? (meaningless to me)

The green lady looks like she has handcuffs on, that belt print looks chain-like and those leaf cuffs finish the illusion.

Darn, I'll never look at her the same!  :P


The print and colour of the white knight's helmet makes it look like a Rebel flight helmet from Star Wars. I want the arms and legs of that figure though.

I had never thought of that regarding the helmet...  Oh, WAIT.. I AM NOT FALLING DOWN THAT HOLE. I want TWO - WIP - (ok, maybe 3 or 4) people characters from SW (and R2).. and I would love the clones, but can't figure it out.  NO. MORE.

Love the arms too :love:  The legs.. meh. I mean, great color, but I dislike the mold.


I really don't like the legs of the cyborg. In part because there are too many pegleg pirates, but also because a pegleg is just stupid for a cyborg, I'd expect a more robot looking leg and the old fashioned boot looks out of place too. I think the new arm looks great but would be better in a grey colour. As it stands the cyborg looks like a GI Joe figure from the 90s and that is not a good thing.

Again, you're right. And it's kinda odd for someone else - the pegleg with those colors...

The weapon arm doesn't really work well... imo. The cannon arm is perfect. This... meh.


The gangster looks great, it would be better if it had round framed glasses or none at all and the mustache should be thinner and not droop but otherwise works well. The flapper can be given the tray to make a cigarette girl at some club.

No gangsters here... and her.. have no idea... Maybe a masquerade?


They've used a mold originally for a gladiator which needs armour on the weapon holding side of the chest (shield protects the other side) for the archer which is why he's left handed.

I know the chestpiece is from a gladiator, I just have no idea why he has it.. My question of being lefthanded is the bracer... supposed to be worn on the arm that holds the bow (according to Age Of Empires, so that the feathers of the arrow speeding by don't open the poor guy's wrist)..

My only serious olympic sports watching is football.

Thanks for the review, this is one of the best series by the look of it...and yeah, that brown weskit looks awesome, would look great with those flowy white arms.

Thank you :)

You mean the torso of the "naval guard"?  Don't know for who yet but it IS beautiful, and that is a serious possibility :)

Where do the (new) shoes for the cavewoman come from? Also how did you replace them without damaging the figure?

Uhm.. they're normal caveman boots.. I think? Unless you mean that color?  (at least this one: link from playmodb)

I think I DIDN'T remove the feet this time, since I used a skirt with those legs, instead of the one she brought...

I cut the tab in the skirt when I need to remove the feet, most of the time (posted about it, and the cutter :love: on my neverending PROCESS)
