3 3/4″ figure of the World’s Greatest Paranormal Investigator

I grew up with the original Star Wars toys, with only 5 points of articulation. So this ReAction line of figures has been interesting to me to say the least. I still remember stopping by the Super7 booth many years ago at New York Comic Con, and they showed me the designs and prototypes for the Aliens ReAction figures, which kicked off all of this. Who knew there would be so many licenses to go the ReAction route.

Well now it’s Hellboy’s turn and I couldn’t be more happy.

I’m a huge fan of Hellboy, so I knew when I heard about this I had to get him as ReAction.

I’m not disappointed at all here. 5 points of articulation but the sculpt is pretty amazing. Even though it’s stylized, you can see a lot of Hellboy’s creator, Mike Mignola, influence in here. The jacket is molded to the body and I’m Ok with that. I also thought it was cool how they molded the tail to his leg. It actually give the figure more balance when he’s standing on his own.

The figure comes with one accessory. Hellboy’s famous gun, the Samaritan. It looks oversized, but it works here.

The only issue I have with the figure is the price point. I bought this directly from Super7 and paid $15. I truly feel that price is way too high for what we are getting. That price is also holding me back from buy the other figures in this set: Abe Sapien, Liz Sherman, and Lobster Johnson.

If Super7 could find a way to lower the price I would more than willing to buy the entire series, but until then, it looks like I will just be happy with only Hellboy.

You can buy the Hellboy ReAction figure directly from Super7.
