The Redacted are coming! The Redacted are coming!!
By now most everyone on the planet has seen the Avengers movie and knows that the invading army is the Chitauri. And today you’re probably heading out to the store to pick up your copy of the movie on Blu-Ray and/or DVD. So in honor of the release let’s take a look the LCS exclusive set of Chitauri.
Ok, so what makes him a general instead of regular foot soldier? Better armor and a more powerful gun, I guess.
So the general has a new sculpted gold helmet with a raised part in the back. Very intricate details for this helmet and I really like the purple on the side. Sadly underneath there’s just a blank minimate head. But this is not DST’s fault since they didn’t have the designs for the Chitauri’s face when they got the early movie designs. Luckily Luke comes to the rescue with some decals you can use instead.
The figure has a large torso cover with a lot of gold colored armor. Again great details and really like the raised neck collar of his armor and the purple sash to the back. Underneath he has a torso raiser for added height. The main torso is blank but some nice gold details on his arms and legs. There’s even details on the insides of the legs which we don’t see as often. The main complaint I have of this character is the duck feet, they just don’t look right on minimates.
For an accessory he comes with one of the Chitari gold/purple alien looking guns. Of the two guns included I like this bulkier gun better. Also included is a clear base stand that really helps keep him steady on his feet.
So while they did a good job on the figure overall a few tweeks (and omissions) could have helped him be a lot better.
