Fisher-Price Imaginext Series 12 Collectible Figures Big Building RobotThere aren't a lot of toy lines that collectors would look at and also be aimed squarely at kids anymore. In the 1990s, collectors would tend to buy the kid line - there was no distinction. As such the modern collector fancies himself too good to shop on the preschool aisle, but never let it be said I considered myself too good for anything. This Big Building Robot is in the toddler aisles of some Wal-Marts as the blind bag line is slowly evaporating from American retailers - many Targets, Walmarts, and other stores phased them out completely.

The non-transforming robot is a spectacular reuse of parts to get it to a decent recreation that's distinctly different from the Tom Hanks vehicle Big. The hammer is recolored from Harley Quinn. The arms and legs are reused from the Series 1 Robot figure [FOTD #796]. The new head and torso don't make you think to even consider to check for recycled parts. It just goes to show how clever Fisher-Price/Mattel have been at making something weird for kids that appeals to older fans and can be developed on a budget. Imaginext is diminishing in its retail stature, but they're still putting out great stuff.

The 3-inch figure has a big hammer with a carved-in "pow" graphical hole on the side, which is arguably just as good as any accessory. The head matches the one in the movie somewhat closely, with similar colors and proportions plus added "ears" made of some sort of radar antenna-looking things. It's probably not unlike some "third party" toys wherein you can tell the inspiration, but it doesn't infringe with the specific idea since there were numerous changes in the layout and functionality. The figure has rotating red claw hands, ball-jointed shoulders, an articulated hip with joined legs, and a jointed neck. The detailing is pretty good, with lots of windows in the building and a pretty funny main door on the codpiece.

After all these years, Imaginext settled into a standard figure format which seems to work fairly well as kids grow out of them and seemingly new kids aren't quite as interested in them as "My First Action Figure Line." It takes a little more work to find them, but the figures are worth the asking price and the playsets tend to be worth picking up, too. With less Imaginext out in the wild and figures getting more and more fun and esoteric, I assume we won't be seeing this kind of stuff forever. While I long for a Masters of the Universe-ish Imaginext wave, I don't assume we'll get one any time soon - so go get your Big Robot, Clawtron, and other oddities while you can. They can play nice with Batman and Pheyden and maybe some Playmobil too.
