I know that Topher did a review
already of this same set, but I just thought it would be fun to post some of my own pictures.
These four cute little guys have caused my wallet quite a bit of heartache. When I found out that you could buy the set of four
Crashers for $20 off the normal price ($20 each) when you buy them as a set, I immediately paid the money. Then they sent me an email with the news that they charged another $40 for shipping and taxes. I was all "okay", and then when they finally came into the post office, they informed me that I had to pay another
$30 for some kind of US crossing Canadian border thing. So in all, I paid around 130 bucks for these cuties, how do they stack up? Let's see after the jump*.
*There is no jump.
One thing I really didn't like about them was the clear plastic display case. They would be absolutely beautiful if they didn't come out of the box completely scratched up. I don't know how this could have happened during shipping, because they come really well packed with little foam things and everything. You can't really notice unless you are looking kinda close though. It just kind of bugged me, because I paid a lot of money for these things, and I expect top quality care.
The figures are really well done. The only problem I have is that the paint around the belts are a little bit smudged, but hardly noticeable. The heads are one of the best parts about them. Just small details like how they sunk in the beady little eyes, and the thin black outline framing the white cross are just the icing on the cake. The Behemoth did a really great job with these little guys.
They each come with five accessories, a club, sword, axe, a matching shield, and even the fish used in the game! The sword and axe are even have little blood stains on them! The figures have holes in each hand to hold their weapens, and a hole in the left foot, to fit on a peg on the display stand.
Their posability of the Castle Crashers is somewhat limiting, due to the sheer largeness of their gigantic heads. Their arms can only move a little bit, but thier heads can swivel around, as can their hands.
All in all, if you are a fan of the game -- and why wouldn't you? -- I most definitely suggest picking these little guys up. They are kind of pricey, so if the economy is being tough on you, you could probably skip them, but they make a nice addition to any gamer's collection.
Also, this is my first try doing anything like this, so if any of you have suggestions on how to make my photography better, please don't be afraid to criticize. I only have a 7 megapixel point-and-shoot, so I don't have the best equipment for the job.
