Replicating Ringo Starr may be slightly easier due to his unique look, and when compared to the rest of the Fab Four, his McFarlane Toys figure seemed to turn out slightly better than the rest. The rings on his hand, the colors of his clothes, and the design seem to have been more precisely replicated when comparing to, say, John.
Standing about 6-inches tall, the figure seems to be one of the best in the series. His hair seems about right in profile, but his forehead seems a bit on the long side when viewed head-on. The face more or less matches up just fine, with the uniquely lined eyes and facial hair being more or less true to the animated film. (The toy is slightly thicker and bushier in this department.)
The figure's articulation is pretty much the same as all of the members of the Beatles in this line: you get ankles, wrists, neck, and shoulders. As a desk accessory this is a bright, cheerful figure and not a bad set along with the Blue Meanie (which was included with the individually packaged release.) The duo is about ten bucks on the secondary market.
