Boss Fight Studio Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. Series 1 Talos Review

Boss Fight Studio Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. Series 1 Talos 03

 

Continuing our reviews of Boss Fight Studio Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. Series 1 is the Kickstarter Exclusive Bronze Spartan Talos figure. Talos has a very interesting bio on the back of his packaging (as shown in the gallery below). Talos, is based on the legends of Talos, which is a statue made of bronze. The four statues were gifts from Zeus and were the protectors of the Island of Crete in the Mediterranean Sea. They roamed the shorelines of Crete, protecting Queen Europa from threats. Since Talos was a Kickstarter exclusive, obtaining him with 4 quantity is going to be difficult

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:

Boss Fight Studio Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. Series 1 Talos 11

 

Talos stands 4″ tall and features a thin muscular sculpt that is highly detailed, and a great likeness. He is a repaint of The Spartan Warrior and the Cursed Stone Spartan and is painted as a bronze statue. The deco also gives him a metallic look, with some faded green highlights, which makes it look more realistic of a faded aged statue, just as you would expect. His head sculpt is bearded, and looks aged with some great sculpted detail.

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. There is a screw that is noticeable in his underware, but otherwise everything else looks great.

The armor itself is sculpted with individual sculpted texture, 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. On the back of the armor, there is a hook to store the spear, or at least that’s what we think it’s meant for.

Articulation:

Talos 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:

Talos includes removable armor, helmet, sword, sheath, spear, two sets of interchangeable hands, figure stand, and a shield.

Overall:

Talos is an excellent figure with some superb detail, deco, and accessories. The deco is simply amazing and looks like a 4″ scaled down statue.

Highly Recommended.
