Bit Figs Mega Bit Pheyden Flesh Set Mini FiguresI am a huge, huge sucker for M.U.S.C.L.E.-style mini figures. Huge. So I when I saw the Mega Bit Pheyden Flesh Set I was sitting here asking if I needed to buy yet another set of these guys. After realizing I still had to order that Copper Tape from Flying Vipers and a couple of t-shirts, the answer was a fast "yes." Once I'm paying shipping, all bets are off - if you sell music and band shirts drawn by Matt Doughty - in my size, no less? I'm going to give you my business. So here we are, more figures I don't need, but do want.

The 3-inch tall larger figure stands a bit over a normal Onell Design Pheyden figure, of which you no doubt have dozens. The tiny 1-inch mini Bit Figs Pheyden stands eye to eye to a Mordle, making it one of the smaller figures on the market today. Even the recent baby Groots area bit bigger, making this the perfect sized thing to hide in your nose. (Safety notice: do not hide this figure in your nose, that's disgusting.)

Both figures come completely unpainted - hence the rock-bottom pricing - and are actually pretty good matches to the original Mattel wrestler figures as well as the S.U.C.K.L.E. figures I had handy. So far it seems nobody has perfectly nailed the color and texture of those classic figures, and I'm not sure if a fresh, minty set of those guys would more closely match than what I've got. But they're pretty close, and that's good. If you know what the Pantone number was on the original Mattel M.U.S.C.L.E. plastic, I'm sure there's a substantial reward for it.

Big Pheyden has jointed arms that pop out at the Glyos socket in the shoulder - short of a jointed neck, this is about as much as you would want from one of these guys. He has treads under his feet and stands with no problems. This is a perfect figure for your desk, as it's unlikely to fall over.

Little Pheyden has no articulation and is incredibly small. It has no treads on his shoes, but does sport a Glyos socket so you can use him as a hand or perhaps as a cap on a staff accessory. It doesn't do much of anything other than look cool although I do find myself wishing it were a smidgen taller so it'd be more in line with my other M.U.S.C.L.E.-inspired figure collection.

For the asking price, you can'd do much better - it's a decent chunk of plastic for the money. If you've already got a suite of the Pheyden Bit Figs, you probably don't need too many more unless you're looking to specialize somehow. Just due to the dollars I've spent on these things I'm probably out until a glow in the dark set happens, but I'm really digging what he's done so far. Pick your favorites, and rest assured this is a worthwhile duo.
