Four Horsemen Power Lords New York Comic Con Exclusive Ggrapptikk Grunt (Purple) Action FigureWhile fundamentally similar to the pink version I reviewed last year, the Ggrapptikk Grunt (Purple) its sibling and now that we've had a few of these guys, it's worth looking at him again. I'm writing this just days after the fully-painted figures Ggrabbtargg, Ggripptogg, and Ggrapptikk went on sale giving us a grand total of 8 flavors of this mold with multiple heads so far. In short, this is a mold that mere weeks from now, a lot of fans are probably going to be ready to never ever want to buy again, but it's still a good mold - this wasn't the best version in terms of paint, but it's still charming. It just feels so, so much older than it is given the advancements in deco we've had since February.

In a clever move to add color without paint, this figure swapped arms and feet with a pink bodied figure sold at the same time - it was the same trick they used for Onell Design and Callgrim figures, giving you a little more bang for the buck while exploiting the parts-swappability of the Glyos system. If you bought both you could make a solid pink or solid purple figure, but why would you want to? The contrast really helps here.

Four Horsemen Power Lords New York Comic Con Exclusive Ggrapptikk Grunt (Purple) Action Figure

Four Horsemen Power Lords New York Comic Con Exclusive Ggrapptikk Grunt (Purple) Action FigureThis figure has very limited paint, especially when compared to later, more expensive entries - a couple of bucks resulted in things like fully-painted pants, spikes, claws, and a cap on the mace. This guy doesn't get a lot of action in the color department, but hey, that's how you keep costs down. The color of plastic helps some details pop - his body and armor looks fantastic in person, with various panels and creases showing up quite nicely. The pink tends to absorb some of the detail of the arms and feet, but it does help to give it a unique look. The spikes aren't in-your-face, which is good, because you shouldn't keep sharp things near your eyes.

With a black mace handle (like all of these guys so far), the figure looks pretty good - the helmet head is weird and alien, with a little bit of armor for the top of his head as well. The face doesn't have the personality of some of the other sculpted heads - which are quite gorgeous - but this is still one of those figures you probably wouldn't mind owning. With no story in place for the trooper figures they lack any real significance just yet, but maybe there'll be a story to tell for them some day soon. I'd like to think this guy has something going on when I'm not in the room.
