Bloody Cool Toys
The Bloody Bride in action figure form.
This week, the first volume of Kill Bill action figures arrived at Comic Quest. The toys sport impressive detail, such as dead-on facial features (for Uma Thurman, at least), weapons straight from the film and requisite bloody smears. While having some points of articulation, they're actually more for display than anything else. Aside from the femme fatales, you can also get about three variants of the Crazy 88 fighters- a bald one, a mustachioed one and a clean-shaven guy. Too bad they don't have the female Crazy 88 fighter. Disappointingly, the figure for O-ren Ishii didn't make it in this batch- perhaps next time.
You can actually take off the Bride's shoes to check out her odd-looking toes, while the Gogo figure squirts blood from her eyes if you squeeze her head... I'm kidding, of course.
I've been waiting for these figures for a while, and I'll probably get my Bride and Go Go Yubari tonight. Now all that's left is to decide whether to display them in The Sanctum or at The Salt Mines. We'll see.
It's not as cute as the real Gogo, but the toy shares the same stone-dead killer stare.
