Think pink with the clear glittery Armorvor Neo Nonilla. Colored like a rabid Lisa Frank binder, this nifty figure brings you the Neo Granthan head with the classic wolf helmet and a backpack. And glitter. So much glitter.
The figure is the exact same smattering of parts you know, so the twist is always in what Matt Doughty comes up with for coloring. I don't have a lot else like this other than Glyos figures, and the pink feels a little more dark than other figures he's done - as dark as pink with glitter can be. The glitter sparkles nicely, but what's really nifty is how the plastic properties bounce off the paint. The dark, quasi-metallic blue is nice in and of itself but it has bonus functions as a purple color when you see it phase through the plastic, especially in the wolf head's ears. I didn't notice at first, but now I can't ignore it.
It looks pretty spacey thanks to the glitter, and the blue faces look fantastic. The light bounces off the mug just perfectly, with the usual clean paint and detail. The funny thing is that the pink plastic tends to absorb the lines and detail, with the sculpted armor fading into the background, with the blue painted bits bringing the sculpted parts in to sharp focus. It's really notable how the paint draws your eyes away from the more ethereal plastic parts.
I got my money's worth. It's nifty! But it's not overly new. I've got more Armorvor figures than I will ever display well, and there are usually new ones every month or two. I wouldn't necessarily insist that you buy this one, but they're all pretty good. Pick your favorite colors and be sure to snag a couple of them, because the pop-apart limbs and swappable heads do make for a fun time. It's more fun if you aren't full-on completist, so get your favorites and have yourself a grand time. But do be sure to get at least one.
