REVIEW: Erick Scarecrow’s Liberty

Img_1817

Background

It’s not often that a designer toy stirs up any kind of controversy.  However, when Erick Scarecrow revealed his Liberty vinyl figure at New York Comic Con, he did just that.  There’s nothing risqué or disturbing about the figure, it’s just that he has stylized a symbol of freedom and America.  But is the Statue of Liberty off limits?

Liberty is the first figure released from Scarecrow’s Liquis Series.  It was produced by Kaching Brands, and released back in February.  There are currently a few variants available, but we will be looking at the original colorway.

Packaging

The packaging is somewhat unique.  The window front is actually about half of a window.  One half is a drawing of the figure, while you can see through the other side to the figure.

REVIEW: FreeBento Exclusive Nehanda

Img_1751

Background

Rocket World has been racking up exclusive variants of their Insurgents Wilderness Gruppo (I.W.G.) rotocast vinyl figures.  One of the newest exclusives is Nehanda the Pink Elephant, which you can only pick up at FreeBento.com.  Nehanda is a variant of the Candace the African Elephant vinyl, from Series 4.

Now, if you don’t know the story behind the I.W.G., where have you been the past few years?  Welcome to the world of designer toys!  Remember that a portion of the proceeds are donated to various Non-Profit Wildlife Groups.

Packaging

Considering that Nehanda is one of the largest figures in the line, it’s fitting that she also is packaged in one of the largest boxes.  However, there’s not a lot of wasted space in this packaging.  Series 4 all has the same box design (Nehanda is a variant from this series), which shows what characters are in the series as well as the usual reading for your perusal.
