FANTASTIC FOUR (TOYBIZ)
Today, we look at another figure from Toybiz’s Fantastic Four line from the 90s. Yesterday, we looked at Reed Richards, today we look at his arch nemesis Dr. Victor Von Doom
THE FIGURE ITSELF
The patriarch of Latveria was released in the first wave of figures. He’s based on the character’s look on the cartoon, which was obviously based the comic book look. The figure stands 5 inches tall and has 8 points of articulation. He has a removable cape and a spring loaded right hand. The hand is launched by pushing the extremely obvious lever on the shoulder. It’s kind of an odd feature, as I don’t recall Doom ever doing anything that resembled what this figure seems to emulate. I guess maybe if he were a Doombot, but it just seems like an odd choice for a figure that would have probably been better without it.
THE ME HALF OF THE EQUATION
Dr. Doom was a great figure. I remember being pretty content with this figure, and as a kid he was one of my go to bad guys for whatever hero I was playing with that week. I think he still holds up pretty well for the time, aside from the odd action feature.
