Ratchet & Clank Action Figures Exclusive Review

Ratchet & Clank is one of my favorite platform games of all time. I have been a huge fan of this awesome Insomniac game since its beginning in late 2002. The main character Ratchet, an adorable fox-like creature called a Lombax, teams up with Clank, a witty and sarcastic robot side-kick, team up to save the galaxy from numerous evil forces every episode. The graphic are never disappointing, the puzzles and action are fantastic, and the comedy is second-to-none.

So when I heard that DC Direct was coming out with a line of Ratchet and Clank action figures, my little gamer heart squeed! Although the toys are only available by pre-order at the moment, I was lucky enough to get an exclusive first look at the actual figures!

My official review: They’re AWESOME!

I am very impressed with the attention to detail in every figure and the accessories included. The expressions, weaponry, pose-ability and overall quality make these figures a “Do Want” for any fan of the video game saga. Check out these action shots:

Each set is totally worth the under $20 price tag. Set 1 includes Ratchet, his wrench, a transforming Clank and a weapon. Set 2 includes Armored Ratchet, Clank with wings, Mr. Zurkon, and another kick-ass gun. Set 3 includes Captain Qwark with his monkey Scrunch. And Set 4 includes Dr. Nefarious with a Zoni.

Dr. Nefarious is also a must buy. Check out the detailed bits of "brain" in his glowing green noggin.

I am overall very impressed with the quality of these figures and recommend to all fans of the Ratchet & Clank series. They will be available in January for purchase online or from your local comic shop.
