Fisher-Price Imaginext Series 9 Mystery Figures Grim ReaperI think the Grim Reaper came for Imaginext a little too early - this would've been a great send-off in the last wave of figures, whatever that may be. Imaginext went from being everywhere with multiple lines - some stores getting an entire exclusive theme! - to greatly diminished, mostly licensed product offerings. Weird discount stores dropped them completely, Target's entire selection could fit in a shopping cart, and even Walmarts don't have that much. I guess no matter how you look at it, Death came for Imaginext too soon.

What's really kind of interesting is how well these figures fit in multiple themes. The embodiment of the end comes in purple robes that are a departure from what we usually see. For that reason, it could fit in any city theme, or castle, or space. This could be Space Death. Those could be solar robes. The figure certainly benefits from the sun thanks to a light-up eye port, powered by "flames" on the back of the hood.

The 3-inch figure has standard Imaginext articulation and a rather interesting design with a too-tight robe showing off his bony abs. It's rather baggy elsewhere, so it's an interesting design choice not unlike some Halloween monsters they sell for your homes. The hands and feet are a little bony, and I assume Mattel could crank out a black robe variant with a silver scythe that would be well-received. Thanks to the robes he doesn't fit in all vehicles, but he works with the red discs on playsets just fine and can interact with standard accessories.

I found this in a grocery store recently and bought it, as is the way of my people. I'd say it's well worth the three bucks I paid for it, and it's almost as big and articulated as a "simplified" 3 3/4-inch action figure that would cost $8-$10. Even with no license, you can see that you're getting more value with a product like this. There's a lot of detail, perhaps not as much as a Pop! Vinyl Figure but given the price I'd say you're doing quite well. If Mattel and Fisher-Price opt to not keep Imaginext flowing, I hope other companies pick up the baton and make "compatible" figures much like Playskool/Hasbro have.
