Master Prestige Achieved!(COD Highest Rank)

McFarlane’s Call of Duty Action figure line is video game nostalgia at its finest.  The Call of Duty Franchise began in 2003 and has continued to have many versions released through the years. Based on one of the most popular first-person shooter games of the Call of Duty franchise  Modern Warfare’s  SAS recruit Sergeant John “Soap” MacTavish, and  Black Ops 3 and 4’s Donnie “Ruin” Walsh are two of the line of figures we have the privilege of reviewing for McFarlane Toys.

I had a blast reviewing these characters. With 22 points of articulation which has become the standard for McFarlane made for some great posing. The characters are spot on to their video game counterparts.  Ruin comes with his signature Gravity Slam from  Black Ops four even sporting the smiley face at the end of it. Soap is sporting an ak47.  Each also comes with a Call of Duty stand as well.

When I opened these up I was home for the day because of snow. I decided to take some action shots in the snow. Yes, they handled it well. I played a bit rough with them to see if they were durable for kids and adults alike. If you have children you need not worry they can handle the roughness. The snow shots turned out to be a lot of fun and made for some good pictures. Attention to details on each character down to sunglasses, head tattoo and ammo clips shows that they truly care about accuracy to their characters.

Overall I was impressed with accuracy, articulation, especially with the hands. I have able to put the Gravity Slam in Ruins hands with ease and it stayed in place with no issues. As a fan of the game, I don’t mind adding these to the collection as a reminder of the hours spent leveling to master prestige LOL. My only complaint is I wanted to see more weapons in the arsenal. Although I would sacrifice weapons for articulation having multiple weapons is a feature in game as well and would have been a bonus to an already great figure. If you are a fan of the games then you will be a fan of the figures. Call of Duty figures are out now for purchase and can be found at multiple locations including Target and Game Stop.

Thank you McFarlane Toys for these great figures and we look forward to your expanding line of figures.
