Four Horsemen Power Lords Ophidian Squad Elite Power Soldier Action FigureRed is a weird color - it's seemingly difficult to match, and at first glance I thought this red Ophidian Squad Elite Power Soldier looked like a new shade. It's not all that far off from Venjorun Armorvor, the Red Army Banimon figures, or the very first red Weaponeers of Monkaa Empyreus. It's a tiny bit different - so at first glance it seemed like a new hue to Glyos. I suppose that it technically is.

The body type seems conducive to recoloring, swapping out limbs and heads, and releasing forever - I could see that getting old, but so far the design hasn't worn thin yet. You get the typical 15 points of articulation and as always, the figure can be separated at any of them. Due to the design, you can't quite put Outer Space Men heads on the Power Lords bodies easily, but use of the Glyos system allows for easy swapping between figures. If you want to mix red and blue Power Soldiers to make a figure that looks something like Spider-Man, it's stupendously easy.

Four Horsemen Power Lords Ophidian Squad Elite Power Soldier Action Figure

Four Horsemen Power Lords Ophidian Squad Elite Power Soldier Action FigureThe blue accessories look pretty good, and remind me of a lot of old Kenner Star Wars guns. Why did Boba Fett or Bossk carry a blue weapon? I never thought twice about it in the 1980s, and I suppose the Ophidian Squad Elite Power Soldier probably doesn't much think about it, either. It doesn't pop but that's probably for the best - with limited deco, the silver visor and chest symbol tend to stand out nicely while the black painted belt does a good job of breaking up the endless seas of crimson.

With the Ggrapptikks and their ilk, I find I'm liking the more muted colors better - but for Power Soldiers, the brighter the better. Red is good, blue is nice, and I wouldn't say no to blisteringly bright green or some other crazy colors. Heck, if I got glow-in-the-dark I'd be a happy camper! The 3 3/4-inch scale figure has a superb range of movement - like his siblings - and can sit in most 3 3/4-inch scale vehicles. The design is one worth stealing, although I doubt Hasbro or Mattel will swipe this buck for Star Wars or Batman. I'd love to see Stormtroopers made with this exact level of articulation, because the t-crotch swivel hips are conducive to piloting vehicles more than the swiveling hips on many recent releases. As always, get a Power Soldier if you can - regardless of the coloring.
