The Ultimate Spartan figure by Boss Fight Studio was an exclusive to the New Jersey Collectors Con and was available to purchase at the con, and after on eBay. If you hurry, you can purchase one right now at the time this was published.

The Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. 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.

NJCC Exclusive Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. Ultimate Spartan 05

 

The Ultimate Spartan 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. His flesh and armor are also sprayed to look dirty, and this is a very nice feature to separate this figure than what has come before.

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 helmets fits over the head perfectly without feeling loose and is not a struggle to put on.

Articulation:

The Ultimate Spartan 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 Ultimate Spartan includes removable armor, 4 helmets, 5 swords, spear, 2 axes, interchangeable hands, figure stand, sheath. and 2 shields. All of these accessories except for the helmet with the most hair has been seen before from series 1 figures, as well as the Amazon warrior. This figure comes with the most accessories thus far, which is why he was given the “Ultimate” title in the name.

Overall:

The Ultimate Spartan 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.
