Four Horsemen Power Lords Slate Zone Elite Power Soldier Action FigureThis is the brown/tan one! While the first two Power Soldiers in black and white sold out in minutes and required an additional run, the Slate Zone Elite Power Soldier stuck around for a while - the normal grey Slate Zone figure sold quickly, but this one was the first Power Lords figure to be available for several weeks. It's a shame, it's a nice figure!

As with before, the figure looks and feels like some wonderful refugee out of the 1980s - the coloring isn't too far off from the earthy colors of Robo-Strux or some Starriors, and the red visor really breaks the figure up. If you told be this was an Atari VCS hero, I'd believe you. As with before he has 15 points of articulation and can be separated at each and every one of them with either a Glyos joint, a mini Glyos joint, or a ball joint in the case of the skull/neck connection. Since you can swap out parts with other figures, you can get some pretty diverse looks in a hurry - other color hands or feet can quickly become boots or gloves.

As with before, the figure makes the most out of limited paint applications - each soldier has a painted visor, belt, and chest triangle. And that's it. Due to the "trooper" nature of the figure, a little uniformity goes a long way and the Power Lords have their own equivalent of the Clone Trooper. I assume - there's no story explaining the new figures, who they are, where they come from, or what you're supposed to do with them. On one hand it's liberating to be able to decide who and what a toy is, but that's mostly fun when you're a kid. As an older fan, I would love to know who this is supposed to be, why he's here, and why I should care to buy his buddies in the next wave.

Four Horsemen Power Lords Slate Zone Elite Power Soldier Action Figure

Four Horsemen Power Lords Slate Zone Elite Power Soldier Action FigureThis time around the figure has black accessories, which look pretty nice. It seems each wave has a slightly different color of weapons, which will make it easy to keep them separated in the parts bins down the road. Our tan soldier here has no real problems holding his weapons in either hand with a good, tight grip in either fist.

I adored the white version of this figure, and the rest are all quite nice too - the tan also matches some Glyos figures from Onell Design somewhat closely. I would advise anyone with any interest in Glyos to snag a Power Soldier (or Adam Power, or Lord Power) if the chance comes up because the design is quite excellent. These feel like the final evolution of what Hasbro would do with Star Wars were choking hazards not an issue. For ten bucks it's totally worth your while!
