BATTLE OF THE PLANETS
So, I’m jumping forward a bit with the next few reviews. Today, I’ll be looking at Mark from Diamond Select Toys’ Battle of the Planets line, based on the sixties anime of the same name.
THE FIGURE ITSELF
The figure is the regular release version of Mark, the leader of G-Force. This version is the helmeted one. There was also an un-helmeted one, but I never got that one. Mark stands about 7 inches tall and has 7 points of articulation. Two of these points are virtually useless, however, as the v-cults at his hips do no good without any articulation below them. The helmet is done well, especially the visor, which is really cool. The sculpt and paint are pretty solid, though I do think that some of the airbushing on the white parts might be too heavy.
THE ME HALF OF THE EQUATION
I bought this figure mostly because I had just finished the first volume of Dynamite’s Battle of the Planets, and because I found a set of the first series for about $20. It’s a decent figure, but I don’t have any large lasting attachment to it.
