WEAPONEERS OF MONKAA
Today marks the third entry in my reviews of the most recently released set of figures in the Weaponeers of Monkaa line. So far, I’ve looked at Midas: the Golden Gohlem and Gearion: Lord of Light and leader of the Golden Gohlem army. I’ll be jumping over to another segment of the line with the Veridiohm. Let’s take a look at the figure!
THE FIGURE ITSELF
The Veridiohm uses the basic layout of the Gohlem figures from the line, but according to Spy Monkey, this isn’t actually a Gohlem, it just looks like one. Supposedly, the Veridiohm is like a hive-mind type entity made of green energy. Pretty much it’s an excuse to release a Weaponeer in translucent green plastic. And I most certainly won’t complain about that! The Veridiohm is built on “Old Faithful”, the same set of parts used for every figure in the line. In the default setup, the Veridiohm has 16 points of articulation and stands just shy of 4 inches tall. Verodiohm is one of the basic releases, so he’s got a much more basic set of paint apps. There pretty much exactly the same as those seen on Midas, but in green plastic instead of gold. The insignias are nice and crisply painted, and the eyes don’t have any real slop or bleed over. The Veridiohm includes the standard short blade and sickle, molded in the same green plastic as the rest of the figure.
THE ME HALF OF THE EQUATION
The Veridiohm was purchased on the first day of release, as soon as they went up for sale on the Spy Monkey website. As simple as he is, I really enjoy the figure, due mostly to the color of the plastic. I’m a total sucker for translucent green!
