Krig Black Spartan Mezco One 12 Action Figure Toy Fair 2021 Exclusive Unboxing & Review!
foreign now hey everybody welcome back david ion here with another
box gift box which has the
unboxingand this is obviously the
box gift box which has the
blackversion of the
krigand you can see this has already been dug all through and there's a reason for that i did not pull this apart this package was stolen and recovered and it was stolen because of an error on the part of
mezcothis is the
krigrumble society craig 13 it says on this piece of cardboard here stolen and recovered by the police and some of the worst customer service that i've experienced in a long time courtesy of
mezcounfortunately so bad so that i will no longer be purchasing anything directly from
mezcoand you know if you want to see the whole story on that i'm just pulling everything out here to show you i did do a video on it when i received this package a couple of days ago so that's that's it for what's in the box i did a video on that and i put it up on the channel to explain to people my experience and it opened up a can of worms for a lot of people because apparently there's a few people that have been through a similar experience here's the instructions nothing on the back here's this and again this has already been pulled apart it was pulled apart by the person who misappropriated the package delivered it to the wrong address in a different state there's a kerchief and these are all little bits of this and that here's the jacket...
like a leather cape or covering something that well it's pleather really it's got a wire around it as you can see there that goes with the
figurethe slugfest cryptocog it says kind of like the old stuff that they used to do back in the day crypto things that you could order from cereal boxes but they tore this all apart and you know i checked it on that video to make sure everything was there i think everything is here popeye three and three and quarter inch
figureor 1 18 scale if you will because they're getting back into that they've got a set on pre-order for three and three-quarter inch popeye
figures set right now and that's a bonus
figurehere so yeah just very disappointed with how mesco treated me and all of that for a mistake that they made there's a big sew on patch p s c c see so on not iron on if something turns up you know i'm still here some this is from out of the box congratulations you're the proud owner of that's it if i get something if i see something i really want a couple of pins like the death stroke that just dropped not too long ago if i really wanted i'll just go get a third party but i will not get anything directly from
fairsticker we're almost through all the bits and pieces comic book here oh and like i was starting to say here's a little hint of some other things they might make their purple white yellow i can do without all this stuff i really just wanted the...
figureyou know and they charge a whole bunch of extra money and then give you all this little bits of stuff there's another sticker here's some trading card oh that's a sticker trading cards i have no use for this you know i really just want the
figureand they add all this extra stuff and then charge like an extra fifty sixty seventy dollars and to me that it doesn't make any sense and if it sounds like i'm a little bit bitter keep in mind i'm just coming off of my whole ordeal with even getting this package back and it's remarkable that i did i didn't think the police were going to be able to help and i'm i'm grateful to the topeka police department for stepping up there credit where credit is due right so here's the
krigbox rumble society and we'll go ahead and start digging into this and check check out the
figurecheck out the articulation that's the bag that this was in opens up like that with a magnet it's attached so that doesn't come off right closes up like that nothing on the back and i'll go ahead and pull the trays out and we'll take a look at the
figureand then when we're done looking at the
figurewe'll test his articulation and then we'll put him in a pose it's a sticker sheet and i guess this tells you
spartanblood force pale drivers i guess that says murder hornets letting you know who those characters are i guess they're in the comic book and i'm...
sure they'll make everything there this has already been pulled apart so i might as well just go ahead and take these out like i said if you want to hear that whole story i'm gonna put it i'll put a link to it at the end of this video now here's a tray with some accessories we'll be taking a closer look at these in a moment here's this tray go ahead and lift that off and here's the
blackkrieg and all of his parts and you can tell looking at this already if you've seen enough
mezcostuff that they really kind of just kid bashed this with bits and pieces from other things all right some original but a lot of kit bash which is fine you know and it's an interesting original property so we're gonna go ahead and pull him out and stand him up here and we're gonna take a good detailed look at him and here we are back with our
spartanout of the box and that is a helmet the helmet does come off and he does have a head underneath and this is the second
krigbecause they made the blood force or red
krigfirst and the thing that stinks about these is when they have a mezcal
exclusivelike this it sells out in less than a minute and so you don't get a chance you really don't get a chance i got really lucky to be able to get this on the pre-order i was shocked really i didn't think i was going to be able to get it because most of the time you can't when they have something that isn't common if...
you will but i did run into a problem i know i just can't let it go right i did run into a problem and like i said that'll be detailed that's detailed in the other video if you care to see it the link will be at the end right now i just want to concentrate on this because i am still a fan of 112
figures i do like a lot of
mezco's work i mean sometimes it's hit or miss and they produce something and you're like i don't know about this but sometimes they really knock it out of the park like that stormy seas popeye and bluto two pack that was an out of the park like ball game is over excellent well done set you know it's stuff like that that keeps you coming back just taking a look at the details here obviously i did not get the red krieg don't know if i ever will aftermarket on that is high and i don't like uh dealing with aftermarket on modern
figures i don't mind aftermarket on vintage because my heart really does lie in vintage mostly it's a lot of good detail in the back i i prefer vintage to modern and i don't think you should have to crawl and scramble to find modern stuff does that make any sense like if it's his target
exclusiveit should be in target not at conventions and on ebay just saying one thing i'll give him credit for right off and i've brought this up time and again with
mezcosometimes these stands do not work the peg is usually too small and it doesn't hold the
figurebut they have been...
getting better with that as you can see it's holding on really nicely and that's something that i appreciate because you see that more with older
figures although that did happen with a
figurethat i had recently the peg just wasn't very good but recently it's been getting better and it stinks because they fall over all the time when the pegs aren't very good so we're going to take a look at the accessories and then i'm going to take him off and test his articulation i'm going to start right in the front here and you get a pair of hands and these are a pair of gripping gloved hands and they're kind of rubbery they're thick but they're rubbery and then we have a couple of this one looks like a a clasping hand like maybe you can hold a tool and then this one looks like a trigger finger hand and i will test hand changeouts as well and then one more hand and this is like a reaching hand so there's only five extras seven hands in total and what's on the
figureare fists this is a wrap which i showed earlier because it wasn't in the box goes around his shoulders there's a hole right there probably for the scabbard that's on his back so that it can show through and it holds on with a wire that's in the top portion i don't feel oh there is these two pieces have a wire but i don't think there's a wire anywhere else oh there is okay okay so the front and the back have a wire for flow effect but not anything...
in the center all right the 112 collective little bag which i never used but some people swear by them so that's okay four magazines for this pistol and the magazine does come out so you can change that magazine if you want to and it does rack like a regular pistol a knife with a sheath fits in there like that the gripping arm which is standard you know who i had a lot of trouble with was the superman for some reason it it won't tighten enough to hold him the christopher reeve superman that's the last one i did a
reviewon i think that's the one that he won't stay on the stand very well this thing which kind of looks like a cutting tool actually doesn't it look like that should there should be an arc in there like an arc welder some sort of a cutting tool perhaps i didn't read the little mini comics so i don't know batteries because he does take batteries and i will put them in and test him some little bits of this and that what looks like some various grenades and maybe a communicator and some other little odds and ends i didn't want to open them up and have them fall out all over the place but you can see that clearly there some sort of a swishing thing maybe the blade goes in this or this goes on the blade so this is a blade and i imagine this is what goes in the scabbard on his back or it might kind of cling on looking knife there and perhaps uh yeah that goes in there so that you can make it look like he's slashing with it maybe...
it's some sort of an energy blade feels fragile at the end i would be careful what is this well maybe this goes on here it looks like it yeah it does okay so flame or cutting effect and then you've got this which i guess is for the pistol or the rifle fits in there so you can make it look like you're firing a shot which you know
mezcooften includes pieces like that and then what looks like a type of a shotgun oh the stock comes out a little bit there i don't know if anything else moves it doesn't feel like it but it does kind of resemble a shotgun and this what looks like a long is that that could be a round in there not sure that brings us back to the
figureso we'll go ahead and take him off start testing his articulation we'll take his helmet off and that just kind of opens up there like that see it's just two pieces just like that take the plastic off and there is the craig's face really limited uh head articulation for
mezcoside to side barely any tilt barely barely and that's probably just incidental up and down nothing so that's very limited and i imagine that you can do that yeah you could change this head if you want to and i guess that's a feature that's supposed to make the eye light up just like with uh just like with the cable
figures but this does not come out it's not turning this panel i think comes off if i remember correctly from the instructions yeah that goes up this screws out and you put the...
batteries in there so we'll test the arms very stiff and you know obviously there's some constriction because of all of the armor pieces up and forward to about there elbow jointing to about right there if it's a double jointed elbow i can't tell it feels like it's a double jointed elbow but obviously the armor pieces are going to block it from going up any higher so that's as far as it's gonna go no bicep twist again could be just constricted on account of the armor pieces forearm twist is present that's something the hands about average and we can go ahead and change one out and see how easy that is they've been getting better with that because you see the pegs are a little bigger slightly bigger and hand change out pretty simple side to side i like about that that's not bad backward tilt forward ab crunch restricted the back tilt is better than the forward crunch again the armor blocking it twist like about that legs nice big split because this is not form-fitting fabric so it's got a little looseness to it the accessories are glued on this looks like it's glued on as does this i mean if it's sewn through i can't see it i would be real careful about accidentally pulling these off forward and backward leg movement is pretty decent the right leg goes back better than the left one forward seated split pretty good double jointed knees limited calf twist and the rest of the movement is going to be in the ankle so you get...
that little bit of side to side not much up and down also very limited so not much articulation in the ankle there and it's this uh sabaton that's blocking a lot of that now let's get the batteries in them and see how well that works all right i've just put the batteries in no problem getting the batteries in to the back panel we'll go ahead and turn that on now and you can see this lights up in the back and then up front that's the chest panel and then of course the eye and i'll cut some of the light here so that you can get a better look at that it's nice and bright and i've had problems with the lights in these before like the ghostbusters and dark side where the light just does not shine through very well at all well darkseid's face lights up pretty good but the omega blast eyes really don't even work so that's not bad and as you can see they borrowed a lot from their rob lithfield looking cable
figureso what we're going to do now is go ahead and take him down into the museum and set him up with the other mezcal 112
figures and see how he looks and here we are down in the museum heading over to the 112th collective section and there is the
krigin his new home and i did have some technical problems with this
figureand i'm going to point those out and if you've got this
figurealso let me know if you ran into this first of all the helmet does not want to stay closed if you try to reposition that helmet it's...
going to pop open every time it doesn't like to stay closed i mean that's not a huge issue but it was worth noting secondly of course if you put the wrap all the way around you can't see the light up feature at all and i turned on cable because now you can make the comparison and see that they borrowed very heavily from cable here with the whole light up feature and even some of the armor a lot of the armor as a matter of fact cable's armor is a little better but the the boots the chest piece a lot of stuff is very similar on cable the one thing that stood out for me the most was the hands now the trigger finger hand is okay and i've got this sort of a gripping hand over here or clutching because i was going to try to have him hold the rifle with both hands but it doesn't work both hands won't comfortably come across his chest well enough to grip that rifle without it starting to bend at the stock and i'm afraid of breaking it quite frankly so i just stopped trying to do it the other issue was with the traditional gripping hand that's designed for all the other tools they don't really seem to work nothing will stay in those gripping hands the the knife the pistol the the blade whatever i put in the regular gripping hand won't stay in it falls out and i i'm just wondering if anyone else got this
figureand ran into that problem because it's kind of pointless to have gripping hands and accessories and you won't hold...
anything just saying okay the
figurelooks okay otherwise kind of difficult to pose because he's so bulky i mean he looks cool just standing there with the wrap sort of floating there and again if you close the wrap all the way up then you have no use for the lighted feature unless you just kind of and you see that just sort of falls apart when you touch it there goes the helmet if you want to wrap them up and just have the face exposed so that you can see the eye because the eye lights up and it's the opposite eye of cables i don't know so i don't know how i feel about this one again he looks really cool but i've run into some problems with him trigger finger hand works really well no trouble changing out the hands leg articulation is really good arm articulation is limited and for some reason my gripping hands don't want to work and like i said maybe it's just me maybe you've got gripping hands and they work better the light up feature works really well actually it's a lot brighter even than cables because i don't use i rarely turn these batteries on so his light up feature is brighter than cables it's working really well given that so what do you think guys is this a
figurethat you would want and what would you do with him maybe i'll just take the wrap off and display him without the wrap maybe he'll pose better and here's the christopher reeve superman who's got a really good arch in his back and he poses very...
well really excellent poses flying poses for the christopher reeve superman that i i think that's the last
