REVIEW: Sam Fout’s Project:Neptoon

Img_0281

Background

In the year 2526…Mankind has eradicated all human life from the galaxy.  Earth’s animals have formed national teams and launched their space arks into the cosmos…Unable to reach peaceful agreement, the teams construct crude arenas on surrounding moons.  There they organize battles and competitions for the total control of the last inhabitable planet…Neptune.

Sam Fout’s Project:Neptoon line is from Playstix – the vinyl toy brand from Play Imaginative.  Fout has created comics revolving around the story’s main characters.  They are also developing scripts to tell the story through motion pictures and television.

Packaging

The figures come in two different sizes, meaning that there are two separate boxes…depending on the size of the figure.  Each window-front box is individualized depending on the figure that is packaged inside.  There is a photo of the character and information about that character.

The Figures

There are six total figures in the Project:Neptoon line.  They are split evenly into two different sizes – 4” and 6”.  The 6” tall figures are Major Walter E. Ripper (2), Special Agent Kakudji (2) and Number Three (1).  The 4” tall figures are Captain Jack Maddox (3), Number One (3) and Cadet Clyde Olson (3).  (Points of articulation in parentheses)

Our Opinion

Major Walter E. Ripper: Sovereign leader and founder of Tomorrow’s Republic.  He’s an imposing character…a giant reptile. 

Rating: 8.6/10

Special Agent Kakudji: Covert Ops for TeamAfrica.  This is definitely
my favorite figure in the line.  It’s a great sculpt, and simple color
scheme. 

Rating: 9.6/10

Number Three (Formerly Corporal H.G. Magesh)
: Devoted follower of Major
Ripper and Tomorrow’s Republic Soldier.
  I’m not sure I like this
sculpt.  I’d like to see articulated arms, since there are some paint
issues around the hand area.

Rating: 8.3/10

Captain Jack Maddox: Champion pilot for TeamAmerica. He’s the “good guy” and probably the best of the 4” figures in the line.

Rating: 9.2/10

Number One (Formerly Special Agent D. Capstack): Major Ripper’s
mouthpiece and chief advisor.
  Poultry in a shirt and tie...have to
love it!  The only problem I see is that there is ridge in the vinyl
around the figure’s chin.

Rating: 8.4/10
