REVIEW: Robolucha

Img_6685

Background

Patch Together, the website that gives everyone the shot at being a toy designer, recently released mekazoo’s Robolucha vinyl in three different colorways.

Robolucha was created by using the DNA of a famous Mexican wrestler.  He was fighting at the Robot Wrestling League but one day he got pissed off as he couldn’t find a rival to beat him and got retired.  Now he is living in a humble apartment enjoying mechanic nachos and lubricant tequila.

Packaging

The figure is packaged in a window-front box.  There are outline drawings of the character on each side.  The story of the character is printed on the rear panel, along with drawings of the three different colorways.  Inside, the figure is secured between dual, interlocking plastic trays.

The Figure

Each Robolucha figure stands approximately 6” in height and has 7 points of articulation (neck, shoulders, hands and legs).  The shoulders are ball joints, so they have a wide range of motion.

The rotocast vinyl figure is available in three different color combinations: Yellow/Black/White; Red/Blue/White; Orange/Gray/White.  Each colorway is limited to a run of 300 pieces.

Our Opinion

Patch Together did a pretty good job recreating the 3D animated Robolucha concept…right down to his wrestling singlet.

However, there are some sculpting and paint application issues.  Sculpting-wise, there are some noticeable gaps where the legs attach to the body.  Also, there is a crease underneath that manly singlet. 

Some of the lines are not tight, but that could be due to the complexity of the head sculpt.  It might seem simple, since it’s round, but all of those lines on the head are actually sculpted and then painted.

I definitely like the different color combinations that they’ve chosen for the figure.  While we reviewed the Yellow and Black figure, I think collectors will have enough variety that they can choose q favorite of the three.

You can pick one up at the following:

Patch Together: $80.00 (set) or $35.00 (each)
