Skylanders Giants: Spyro 95426
Item number 95426
Barcode 0 65541 95426 7
released date: unsure
2 minifigures:Silver Metallic Spyro and buildable Arkeyan Defense Drone
I found this at a local Kroger today on clearance for $2.10! I bought it for the Spyro minifigure. He looks great and has good articulation. I can use him as a drawing reference or as an addition to LEGO MOC's.
While it may be possible to pull the legs off I didn't try. I didn't want to risk damage the figure. His head and wings come off easily so he is basically 3 parts.
His legs DO move. I think its interesting that parts of the figure are matte gray while other parts are shiny silver. Mega Bloks did a great jump with the transitioning from one surface finish to the next.
In this photo and several others I am displaying him with a semitransparent LEGO piece. The hole in the bottom of Spyro is a little smaller than the LEGO piece and I had to force it in just a little. Its a little snug.
I've always loved dragons and have a difficult time resisting the urge to buy every dragon figure that I encounter. At the discounted price I had to own this little guy and I actually think he is worth the full retail price. Mega Blocks did a great job with him. I have since found myself studying other Mega Bloks Skylanders sets in stores.
What are your thoughts about the figure or set? Do you have a favorite dragon figure that I should check out?
Thanks for reading!
