Boss Fight Studio Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. Series 1 Spartan Warrior 20

 

Kicking off our reviews of Boss Fight Studio Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. Series 1 is the Spartan Warrior. We’re going to be reviewing these individually to widen the exposure on these amazing figures as much as possible.

Following a very successful Kickstarter campaign in July 2014, Boss Fight Studio has made delivery of the first wave of Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. This wave includes: Spartan Warrior, Medusa, Gorgon Horde Coral Gorgon, Cursed Stone Spartan, and the Kickstarter Exclusive Bronze Spartan Talos. Along with these, Boss Fight also shipped out series 3 Black Racer Gorgon, and wave 1 Fire Orange and Shadow Grey blank bodies.

These figures are scaled to 1/18th inches, making them compatible with G.I. Joe and Star Wars, among other 4″ lines. These figures are based on Greek Mythology, and each come highly detailed with accessories.

Availability: February 2016

Sculpt & Paint:

The Spartan Warrior stands 4″ tall and features a thin muscular sculpt that is highly detailed, and a great likeness. If you’re a fan of Greek Mythology, or even highly detailed 1:18 scale action figures, there is a lot to love in this line as far as the sculpting and paint deco. His chest armor is all one piece and is removable, leaving his bare chest, arms, and legs. The armor is painted with polished metal, with white and red shorts. There is a screw that is noticeable in his underware, but otherwise everything else looks great.

The armor itself is sculpted with a muscular tone, and the skirt is attached to the chest armor. The armor on his knees is removable, and they also do not block any of the knee or ankle articulation. The joints are nice and sturdy, and popping off the head to remove the armor is doesn’t require much effort.

He comes with one bearded head sculpt, which could pass as a generic soldier in the Spartan army. The hair and beard is textured, and the helmet fits over the head perfectly without feeling loose and is not a struggle to put on. The Spartan Warrior is painted with a standard flesh color, brown sandals, polished metal helmet with red deco on top, polished metal shield with battle damage with red around it and the letter “V” in red, silver swords, and a polished metal and silver spear. The sheath can fit the longer sword, and is painted in brown with polished metal, and two red bags hanging off of it.

Articulation:

The Spartan Warrior includes a ball jointed neck, swivel-hinged shoulders, hinged elbows, swivel-hinged wrists, ball jointed hips, double-hinged knees, swivel ankles. His leg articulation could use some added points including a hip and thigh swivel, knee swivel, and the ankles require a rocker joint to help him stand while creating more unique poses. The figure stand helps, but the ankle rocker would have been a key point of articulation here.

Accessories:

The Spartan Warrior includes removable armor, helmet, long sword, short sword, spear, interchangeable hands, figure stand, sheath. and a shield.

Overall:

The Spartan Warrior is an excellent figure with some superb detail, deco, and accessories. Boss Fight Studio did an amazing job on this figure, and we looking forward to seeing that they do next. While the figure has some issues in the articulation that we mentioned above, the good outweigh the negative.

Highly Recommended.
