Bif Bang Pow! The Twilight Zone Kanamit (Work Uniform) Action FigureFrom another one of The Twilight Zone's iconic (and oft-lampooned) episodes is Kanamit (Work Uniform) from "To Serve Man." As he was played by the giant Richard Kiel, the figure is also a smidgen taller at about 4 1/4-inches. He has 5 points of articulation and is sold in 3 flavors - white outfit, black outfit, and full-color figure (which wears a white outfit).

I consulted on this line (for full disclosure) and let me tell you, there were plenty of arguments over things like height, articulation, and even how the legs will be split. Mego's Charon figure had a uni-leg, just like the 1990s Jawas action figures. Kenner's Anakin Skywalker and Emperor Palpatine had robes which split like pants. And this one has hollow legs for some reason, I don't remember them being hollow in the development stages so I'm not quite sure what to say there. This was a surprise, but you can store the book in there if you like. Sure, it's not "vintage" but it's a neat feature.

One odd quirk I had with this figure - and also had with Funko's ReAction Bride of Frankenstein - is that the legs are wonky. One leg on each figure is wobbly, loose. I have no idea why either - it makes no sense to me. I don't know why this is and it only seems to be on "robed" figures, including white Kanamit.

The sculpting is simple and quite nice - few fabric folds mar the smooth outfit, making it look a lot like a toy of the 1970s or 1980s. the actual outfit was a little more wrinkly and foldy, and I appreciate the change for the toys. Deco is similarly decent, although the glossy beard is a little gnarly depending on how you display him. The figure can even sit about as well as the 1984 Kenner Anakin Skywalker, which means that everybody got it basically right. It's more fun than the statuesque figures of the 1990s with no leg movement, and the character's quasi-primitive look was pulled off nicely with simple shadowed eyes and a bulbous head. I don't want to compliment the item too much given that I had something to do with it, but I will say it turned out quite nicely and feels very much like a distant sibling to many of the toys I had as a child. I'd say to lean toward this one if you're in the market for one of these guys - it turned as a great display piece and I really do love the sculpting.
