#371 of Year 2 Lego 8793 Knights Kingdom II Sir Rascus

I think I do have more gitd stuff to open, but I thought I should get these out of the way first.  Knights Kingdom II constructible action figures.  And we start off with Sir Rascus.

The packaging is interesting.  The cap is made to resemble the top of a castle.  The base of the container isn't round or square but has a truncated triangle look.  Overall, the back of the packaging looks more like a real tower than the front.  The front is plastered with a sticker that has a picture of the action figure; the back has pictures of the action feature and the cross sell, a definite indication that Lego is trying to enter the action figure market... oh, about 10 years ago, because that's how old these figures are (and I haven't opened them?  What's wrong with me?  Oh yeah, there was TaD 2010, which put a crimp on opening figures, but this year, well, let's hope I'll get everything opened... time permitting, but I digress).

There are no baggies inside, it's just a container of erm... action figure parts.  The construction was easy.  The figure looks stiff and unattractive and too inhuman.  There are two wheels on his back which causes his arms to raise and lower when the wheels are rotated, but yawn, really?

The figure is slightly taller than a MotUC, so it's not bad sizewise, but it just looks bad overall.  Perhaps some twinkie kid will have fun with these, but as an action figure, it looks bad.  And I've got 5 more of these to to!


  1. Wow...I didn't realize these were bigger than MOTUC! I don't own any (or else I would have known about the size...heh), but I LOVE when toys come in packaging that can be used for a playset, like this. Fun stuff. :)

  2. I didn't realise you were a size queen. lol.
