Four Horsemen Power Lords Lord Power Action FigureI laughed out loud when I saw the headline under Lord Power's name was "The Power Lord," but that's really the only part of this figure that feels like it's joking around. From the waist on down, the figure is the same as six previously-released Power Soldiers. The torso, arms, and head are all new - plus there's a bonus head, which I admit I don't think adds much to the set. The default head, Power Staff, and rifle are a delight.

Due to the Glyos-based construction, I assumed that Adam Power would have been sold as a single set of legs with alternate torsos. The Four Horsemen did something smarter and just sold two figures instead - they get a few more bucks, and you don't get stuck with a torso in a baggie. The original Revell Adam Power toy had an action feature which flipped the figure's body around at the waist, with a blue alien on one side and a human on the other. I think they made the right decision to not goof it up and instead just gave us two really nice figures, but if you're on a budget or prefer action features you may disagree.

Four Horsemen Power Lords Lord Power Action Figure

At a hair under 4-inches tall, this figure is similar in size to most current Star Wars and G.I. Joe figures. The articulation has Glyos pegs throughout, with one notable exception. The head just pops on a neck peg, and the neck does not connect via Glyos plug to the torso. As such, you can only swap heads with Lord Power, Power Soldiers, and perhaps a few coincidentally same-size-peg Star Wars figures. The figure appears to be molded in color and painted over in the same color, just like early Outer Space Men. The effect gives the figure more visual weight, with a matte finish that looks like a toy without looking like a cheap toy. It's $15, so this is good. The bright orange pants have a red belt and pockets, while the blue torso has veiny, glossy red elements.

I absolutely love how the head turned out - red eyes, spiky hair, and dark blue eye shading make this a figure that while heroic could just as easily be a baddie. The head is a delight to photograph - seeing it up close showed me a bunch of great detail work - and the body's range of motion is as good as always. He stands, he sits, and there are 14 joints in all - that would probably make him the least-articulated Power Lords toy in this new line, and he's still pretty spectacular.

With a silver Power Staff bedecked with black rings and an unpainted black rifle, it's a decently accessorized figure. My Adam Power staff has no black rings, so the two appear slightly different. The foot holes are similarly sized to Star Wars (1995-present) but he has no problems standing - those are some stiff joints. In my many travels and discussions it seems fans have been less than fully thrilled with the build-up to this line, but after a prolonged wait I can confirm that the final product is indeed impressive and that this is a wonderful figure. Get it if you can - especially if you have the club discount. I don't know if I have the energy to buy too many more of this mold in various colors, but it's easily one of the best versions of this design so far.
