Fisher-Price Imaginext Collectible Figures RobotAnyone who has suffered through my thousands of toy reviews knows that I have a strong affinity for artificial life forms. The Imaginext Robot was right up my alley, and one of three figures I picked up shortly after finding out that this line was buyable. It appears to be a new mold, as with most of this series, courtesy of some magic tooling budget Fisher-Price seems to have discovered after repainting the same human male body for years.

The 3-inch yellow figure looks like a safety test dummy, a piece of factory equipment, and a dangerous being all in one. A "tool" plugs into his back with hammers, screwdrivers, and other tools but has little actual use. It can't be plugged into his hand, unfortunately, so it's mostly just ornamental. It's quite nice, but it would be nicer if they thought out what kids will do with it. He also includes a heck of a big gun, which is heavy enough that the figure may topple over if not balanced correctly. Thanks to the swell design, the figure's giant feet keep him from falling over most of the time - but like I said, big big gun.

The figure itself is quite nice, with eyes that look like small tampographed TV screens, claw hands, visible gears, and giant shins that recall designs from Mega Man. The legs swing forward as one, joined piece but the ball-jointed shoulders and swivel wrists add a lot of fun to the figure that just happens to be scaled to most Glyos figures. For three bucks, it's certainly a nice release with loads of paint and all sorts of nifty details like the new Imaginext "i" on his chest. I don't see that on many figures.

This may be my favorite of the batch - or close to it, that Mummy is pretty cool too. If you like smallish figures, particularly 3-inch scale ones, go get this. Just look for a #23 on the back of the foil pack - see the pictures below - and you'll know when you've found him. I realize this sounds irresponsible with money, but c'mon people. Three bucks. T otally worth it.
