Creatureplica Himalayan Yeti 03

 

Creatureplica have delivered their new line of highly articulated Yeti and Werewolf action figures that were announced back in 2014. This line is sculpted by legendary toy sculptor Jean St. Jean, whom many of you might know from his work on Diamond Select Toys.

The legendary Dzu-Teh or Yeti, abominable Snowman of the peaks and frozen wastes of the Himalayas is depicted as in Tibetan myth and Sherpa sightings at 8 ¼” tall, with 19 points of articulation, and a frozen base of ice with a Himalayan tahr skull buried in the snow.

Availability: December 2015

The Himalayan Yeti, or the abominable Snowman, whichever you prefer to call him, stands at 8 1/4″ tall and is sculpted to represent the descriptions and reports of sightings in the Himalayan. The Himalayan Yeti is more ape-like cryptic taller than an average human.

Compared to the North American Sasquatch, the Himalayan Yeti features a bulkier, and taller sculpt and looks far more menacing as a creature, right up there with the Horror Hound and the Louisiana Rougarou. His body is muscular and covered in sculpted texture to represent fur that has been painted white with yellow highlights, and his chest, hands, feet, and parts of his face and ears have the brown skin with black finger and toe nails. The appearance is undoubtedly an ape-like creature given his form and design.

His head sculpt matches the appearance of an ape, as does the rest of the body, and has textured fur covering his head, with brown deco on the skin parts of his face. His head sculpt is that of a rageful beast, with his mouth open and revealing the sharp fangs, and the red glowing eyes are just menacing. Some aspects about the figure aren’t all perfect. For instance, his joints are tight, too tight that in fact a hair dryer doesn’t make a huge difference in moving them.

The Himalayan Yeti is also fully articulated including a ball jointed neck, swivel-hinge shoulders, swivel biceps, swivel-hinged elbows, swivel wrists, swivel waist, hinged-swivel hips, hinged knees, and swivel ankles.

Included with the Himalayan Yeti is a frozen base of ice with a Himalayan tahr skull buried in the snow. The base is beautifully sculpted with translucent clear plastic that is covered with texture sculpting, and some light blue deco. There is a footprint in the ice of the Himalayan Yeti at the center of one of the two pegs. There are also crystals sticking up over the base, which are very well done. The tahr skull is attached to the base and features some great tooling, with is painted beige with black highlights.

Overall:

Creatureplica have delivered on their promise of highly detailed and articulated figures and we are thrilled with the final product. The Himalayan Yeti is a great figure, a great design, and a lot of run to play with or display.

We look forward to more figures in the future offered by this company. This wraps up our coverage of the first wave of the Creatureplica.
