NECA Toys Toony Classics Bob Ross 6″ Figure Review

NECA Toys Toony Classics Bob Ross 6″ Figure Review

 

Bob Ross is best known for his 1980’s and early 1990’s television show instructing viewers how to paint using oil painting techniques, with creating scenes even without sketching it first. During the show’s run, which ran for 11 years, Bob Ross taught millions to how paint and has become an icon. Reruns of the series continue to be shown even to this day, and even the U.K. reran episodes of his show this year during the pandemic. Bob Ross joins NECA’s Toony Classics line, an animated inspired line that is similar to Toony Terrors, but with a different theme.

Thank you to NECA Toys for providing their Toony Classics Bob Ross 6″ Figure for review. 

Availability: September 2020

Bob Ross is packaged on a blister card with nicely done artwork of a landscape and water view on the front, and is protected in a plastic tray along with his peapod and paint brush. The back also has a beautifully done landscape, with the figure standing in front of it, as well as a description. Below that is a look at additional figures that are also available.

 

Bob Ross joins the Toony Classics line and is an animated interpretation of him done in a friendly style. The likeness is nicely done in this new style, and he comes in a dark pink shirt, blue jeans, a black belt with a grey belt buckle, grey buttons on the shirt, and black shoes, just as you might recall from his show. This style offers a fun take of him, and the designers have done a great job giving fans something special here. The head sculpt looks great, with that afro hairstyle, sculpted and painted beard and mustache, and nicely done facial details. In the pocket of his shirt is a squirrel, with painted a nose and eyes, and a sculpted mouth.

The articulation on him is limited, with a ball jointed neck, swivel shoulders, and swivel biceps.

Included with Bob Ross is a peapod with paint, and a paint brush. Both are nicely painted and done in this same animated style.

 

Overall, this is a fun release and Bob Ross fans should definitely check this out. He fits in nicely with the Toony Classics line and they have done a great job on the likeness, accessories, and overall execution of this release.
