Four Horsemen Power Lords New York Comic Con Exclusive Ggrapptikk Grunt (Pink) Action FigureTechnically a new character in the Power Lords canon, this Ggrapptikk Grunt (Pink) is one of two figures at New York Comic Con - the reverse color was sold there as well, with spare heads as of yet undistributed. Each figure is made of 17 pieces, with a two-piece staff. While larger than the Power Soldiers, they are slightly simpler with no ankle joints but instead four wrist joints.

The single color plastic figures worked well for Power Soldiers, and here the color swap basically makes sense - the exposed skin is purple, and the costume is pink. The head is actually a helmet - we'll see unhelmeted heads on figures like Ggripptogg - and you can see a few black painted highlights on the outfit, including eyes, computer screens, and a belt. It's quite simple, and while it worked incredibly well on the soldiers, here it feels slightly more unfinished. Considering the cost and the fact the figure is twice the size, though, I'm OK with this.

Four Horsemen Power Lords New York Comic Con Exclusive Ggrapptikk Grunt (Pink) Action FigureUnlike the Power Soldier, all of the parts on this figure are the normal, full-size Glyos plug. Each plug represents a joint, and while the figure does have a "skirt" that hinders hip movement, you can pop apart the figure at the waist and it's fully removable.

The Four Horsemen are famous for their sculpting, and this figure is no exception. It straddles the line between 1980s action figure remake and incredible work of art, with amazing skin textures on the arms and feet with fairly straightforward costuming. Some details on the pants are remarkable, but the shirt and huge collar aren't anything too special. I'm not crazy about the helmet design either, but it's consistent with other members of the species that we've seen in toy form. The figure has two forearms jutting out of one elbow joint, with the top set of hands able to grip a two-piece weapon while the back hands just sort of sit there. The joints do a good job at serving the figure, but they don't really add to it and while you may see surprise pieces in the Outer Space Men or Glyos lines, it's pretty by-the-book. It's not like the "headphone" pieces pop out with Glyos pegs, or some other secret form fit exists to swap in a tentacle.

Largely due to the design, these figures seem like they will be best in their final, painted forms - in this state they look a little rougher and the black paint doesn't really feel like it adds a lot. Customizers will no doubt have a blast turning the arms into other constructs, but the giant 5 1/8-inch figures are too big to hang out in most vehicles or playsets designed for the 3 3/4-inch scale toys. It's going to look good on your desk, but it wasn't as fun to futz with as the Power Soldiers, but as cool aliens go I doubt you'll find something with more options for customization this season.
