Full Description
Diving into the lineup, Jeff and Taylor start with none other than Buck Rogers in their analysis. A solid set all around, what good and bad the two have to say about it is accurately represented in the main figure, Buck Rogers. Thinking through specific elements of detail that are the make-or-break of a good figure-making, Jeff and Taylor break down their all-around opinion of the Buck Rogers toy set.
Audio Transcription
and me go bless their hearts. Um, so let's let's talk about the figures and we'll start with Buck Rogers, the man of the hour, because this is a pretty good representation of the line is a whole, um, again, as I mentioned that the head sculpt the face. Sculpt is actually pretty unique, pretty ornate, but without any pain on it. It's sort of it looks pretty bare, but the hair looks like Gil Gerard hair. It's almost even the same shade. What? I like it. If they sculpted a collar around because he had sort of a popped collar, they sculpted that collar around. I like that. It's interesting enough that, you know, because we had talked about what Migo did, uh, with the face sculpts whenever they did. Um, Dukes of Hazzard, because it's sustained, kind of over sculpting and then the inset eyes and everything. And the one thing that I do appreciate with what made me go does with the little 33 quarter inch figures is that the detail in it, it's obvious who it is. I mean, it looks like that's what I mean. Like the face sculpture always really good. They just didn't bother to paint anything. If they had painted some eyebrows or something on there, or even some pupils, it would make everything stand out a little more. We'll talk. We get a little bit of that later on in the line that we'll talk about. But for this one, you know it's again. It's just a little generic. A little bit, Yeah, yeah, and I think it it seems toe It's weird because it almost seems more generic now against, like the white of the uniforms. Exactly. It might not seem as generic if there was a little more going on with the figure below the neck. Right? But I do like, you know, the details that we get. So, you know, with his face, the comb over the the sculpting of the hair, that popped collar. Like you said, that all is unique tome and it works. Some of the the other sculpting I really appreciate with what they've I'm getting a better picture here, uh, with the way that they've done the waste with the top of the torso because he was wearing sort of like tunic that came down under his belt. And they've sculpted that in its Yeah, that is cool. And I've done some really good fold work there. I like that they've even. They've even given him a splash of color on his right on with that band that he had, which he had on the show, and the right arm band, which is a darker color. Well, even even the sculpting, like on the shirt. It's because there's actual seem that goes across the they they did go out of the way to get those themes of the top because they have, like, about top portion that goes around the top of their uniform. Um, like I like that they did, even though it's stark white and I mean there have had to stay true to the outfits. It's stark white, so there's It's going to seem like there's not a lot of details, but when you really get down and you get a good picture of these, there's quite a bit of detail in there where you're looking at lots of nice folds and lots of kind of raise, uh, pieces of fabric. I mean, it's they're really, really nice, and I like it. I like the sculpt of this where it's over the top where it matches over the top, sculpted the face. And to me, the the lack of paint application on the face for this particular figure for these don't really bother me like it did with, like Dukes of Hazzard. I think maybe the reason why is because there's a lack of paint app as it is on the uniforms because of who they are. That, yeah, it was the future. Everybody dressed alike. Yeah, it seems like it. They put too much pain app on the face. It would have made it seem out of place. Does that make sense? So you're saying you don't mind that they cut corners because since they cut corners everywhere else, if they hadn't cut corners there, it would look out of place. When you put it that way, we're cutting corners, so it makes it sound like you're just in apologist and you
