Four Horsemen Power Lords Ggrapptikk Sergeant Action FigureEvery few months the Four Horsemen prepare a new release of figures, and the Ggrapptikk Sergeant took a while to reach mailboxes after it was paid for - but on the bright side, it's quite good. The previous versions were basically unpainted test shots with a splash of black painted highlights, and this release adds a little more paint and is dozens of times better for it. The price went up $2, but you get painted claws, painted spikes, painted pants, little computer elements, more paint around the face, and even a new head sculpt and a new "skirt" piece - that's a new codpiece on this fellow. If you compare it to similarly sized figures from The Outer Space Men like Cyclops, Colossus Rex, or Gamma X, even at the increased price it's unquestionably a better deal providing more bang for your buck.

The black skin does wonders to bring out detail in the design that just got gobbled up by the pink and purple plastics of the first release. Like the Barlowe Concept version, but $10 cheaper for some reason that no slide rule would ever be able to justify, this figure's black arms and red spines and claws make it look like it's part of a distinct species. We know there will be blue skin, orange skin, and red skin members of the race so seeing a few black skinned figures with red claws and piercing red eyes just plain works for me.

Four Horsemen Power Lords Ggrapptikk Sergeant Action Figure

Four Horsemen Power Lords Ggrapptikk Sergeant Action FigureThe texture in the skin, the veins, the creases all really pop in even dim light, while the figure's potentially malevolent intent shines from two wonderful little red dots in his head. I love it when a toy exceeds my expectations, and this one's deco alone utterly destroys the admittedly low standards I've had for Four Horsemen Glyos "prepaints" with little or no deco. Heck, even the figure's head has extra paint on it - the face is wrapped in a green cybernetic "Lobot" piece that vaguely resembles stereophonic headphones, complete with little doodads hanging off the back. The back of this figure's head is arguably better than a lot of other toys I've bought.

As with before, the figure has about 17 pieces, 15 of which are connected via Glyos pegs and can be removed and swapped with other Glyos-compatible figures. The head rests on a peg, while the "skirt" just sort of rests on that region of the body. Each hand swivels, the elbow bends, and there's a lot of action in this figure's movement capabilities. The two-piece Electri-Mace separates at the head, using the smaller mini Glyos pegs which to date are only used on Four Horsemen products.

While it did sell out, it deserved to. It's a big, colorful hulk of a figure that would have totally been worth your money. They remain somewhat inexpensive on eBay for figures produced in quantities of a few hundred - it's a low-run line with little mainstream appeal, so the bright side there is that nobody knows it exists and is looking for it, keeping prices higher than you'd have paid at retail, but still modest overall. Get this guy cheap while you can!
