I don't own too many Toy Pizza figures, but I like the 3 3/4-inch figures a bunch. The Rift Killer Cola Action Figure enough to want the mold again - cola-colored clear brown plastic is wrapped in silver, red, and a couple of shades of blue that may recall Pepsi and RC Cola packaging. It also provides a nice counterbalance to the Nuka T-51 Power Armor [FOTD #2,061] as far as continuing the cola wars goes.
It seems most of the figures from Toy Pizza aren't content to share the same paint masks - which is nice. The figure is covered in amazing sculpted details that are easy to ignore when they're all the same color, so a slightly different paint job can drastically alter the texture of the figure. Your eye may see the armor, the pizza motifs, various cords or weapon-like elements, or something else entirely. It's really quite brilliant how these things turn out when everything is painted just right.
The figure has no weapons, but is compatible with a number of other accessories you may already have in your toy drawers. While he sadly does not come with a soda bottle, he does look like a can a bit - the silver elements remind me of an aluminum can, while everything else feels like the label and other packaging elements. This figure is a nutrition label away of being $2 by a check-out register. I'm very fond of any figure that looks vaguely like a foodstuff I purchase, and I can only imagine if we got a "Jolt" figure some day!
There are lots of these out there, and each seems to speak to people for different reasons. A special toy reference here, a movie character there, and sometimes it's just a nice color that is appealing for no good reason. I just find this one admirable - it's a great all-purpose sci-fi design and it fits in with your old 3 3/4-inch vehicles, mini-rigs, playsets, or other goodies. It's a shame there's no retail line for you to run out and buy, so keep an eye on the Toy Pizza shop next time they have a new one of these.
