Healey Made Assassin (GID) Action FigureI asked for it! The Assassin (GID) is only the second time I picked up this mold. The 3 3/4-inch scale Glyos-compatible Kenner-inspired indie figure is pretty good, and we've had precious few releases of this alien bounty hunter person. The figure delivers as advertised - the body is bare glow, with some black painted details on the heads. The figure delivers exactly what you'd want at the level of quality I expect from previous releases. It feels as good as a decent mass-production toy at indie pricing, or rather, I don't expect them to break if I play with it. At $20 it's also not very far off from the pricing of a lot of 3 3/4-inch Hasbro figures these days.

Generally speaking glowing Glyos figures tend to have minimal painted details, often in a light green and/or white. I'd have liked to see some other painted details just to help offset the landmarks of certain costume elements to help make it obvious what I was looking at - like the "Cosmic Radiation The Outer Space Men silver accordion joints - but this still gets the job done.

I usually gripe about glow plastic often robbing figures of their sculpted detail, but here, it seems to make the figure look pretty good in certain lighting conditions. The shiny plastic and scaly arms do shine a bit, and the deep grooves in the pants also pop pretty well. The cuts and grooves on the armor and outfit are extreme enough that you can make out a lot of detail that I would've expected to retreat back in the figure's silhouette. The material more or less works here.

Their heads are also pretty good, with the hair texture showing up despite the glowing. The mouth and eyes of the alien head pop thanks to black paint, creating a surprisingly not creepy face on what could have been a very bizarre figure. The pointy ears stick out nicely, and there are enough landmarks here that the unpainted head still looks excellent despite the lack of color.

The helmeted head still looks a bit like the Cloud Car Pilot, and it has a painted visor outline. Much of the detail here, like sculpted vertical grooves on the neck and chin, fade into the sculpt. There's just not as much to see here, but it looks just fine.

Our glowing friend also has a blaster that plugs in the back or fits in the fist, plus a tail that you have to plug in (or not use.) Like with most Glyos figures, all the fits are perfect, and the figure stands very well all be theirself. Surprisingly, the figure didn't immediately sell through - but it's also pretty easy to miss a drop if you weren't paying attention. (I am still irate I missed all news of the Trandoshan-color one.) I would hope and expect some day we'll see versions 2.0 of the Assassin and Raider in glow, but who can say for sure? If you have a crack at this one cheap, I'd say grab one. I'd also ask team Healey to give me one of these with red hair and a blue costume like Jann Tosh, but will my prayers be answered? We can hope!
