Shark Week is over. It was underwhelming... More Air Jaws, more idiots bitten by sharks, more last year re-runs. The only good thing form Shark Week was the Dos Equis commercial in which they say that Sharks have a Week for the World's Most Interesting Man. What does all that have to do with this It Came From the Toy Chest? Nothing, unless you link Taylor Lautner's role of Sharkboy to this review
Now I'll show you what he's got:
He has a nice stand, not that he needs it since he is really stable. A Certificate of Authenticity, and his clothes. They are removable but I'm not going to remove them for the review... I had to take off Jacob's pants to remove an elastic band tying him to the case.
Why would you want to see naked male Barbies?
His Articulation is extremely limited, since he's a higher end "collectible Barbie". (Even if he's in Pink Label) He has a great range of motion on his head (almost like a ball joint.) His shoulders have a ball-joint like articulation and his crotch only swivels from standing to a sort of This IS SPARTA kick. Just like I said with Edward.
Check out the cool Tattoo Tampographed on Jacob.
Now for Sharkboy Black's score: As always, 1 = so crappy that the End fight of Breaking Dawn seems awesome compared to it. and 5 makes Eclipse's fighting scenes look like Super Mario Brothers.
For a doll he is slightly under articulated, but then again this doll is meant as a display piece and not a playable one.
There is not much to say here since the body is basically the Ken body, but with the Pedo-Meyerwolf tattoo. There is no slop on him since he's a "higher end collectible" Also Mattel has a higher QC standard on Barbie dolls.
He really does not need anything, but the stand is a nice touch. (He does not need it though, but its cool nonetheless) He has his clothes which are removable, but he only has pants and shoes.Makes me kinda want a Wolf form Jacob.
If you must have him keep him unopened. If you must have the Twi-dolls... I HAD to open mine for two reasons: The review and I have Edward loose. Can't let Jacob caged in.
Now for the review of the stylized version of Stephanie Meyer:
It's cool that Bella gets more Articulation, but part of me wishes that the dudes would've gotten some of that Articulation.
She has her shoes (My left shoe had some minor paint issues, pants, jacket, stand and the certificate of Authenticity
Now for Kenau Girl's score: As always, 1 = so crappy that the End fight of Breaking Dawn seems awesome compared to it. and 5 makes Eclipse's fighting scenes look like Super Mario Brothers.
For a doll she has a nice range of motion, but not enough to rival a mass market doll. then again this doll is meant as a display piece and not a playable one.
There is not much to say here since the body is basically the Barbie body, but with Hinged knees. Huh? There is no slop on her since she's a "higher end collectible" Also Mattel has a higher QC standard on Barbie dolls, but they still make mistakes. Still don't understand why can't they paint her sculpted panties.
She NEEDS the stand because of her Barbie tiptoed feet. It kinda sucks that she's naked underneath her "removable" Jacket.
If you must have her keep her unopened. If you must have the Twi-dolls... I HAD to open mine for two reasons: The review and I have Edward loose. Can't have Bella and Edward separated...
While she has Better Articulation than the males, her stability issues knock her down a few notches.
