Tollg Symbiotic Mico
Review by JoshB
First of all, this review gets NSFW, so if that bothers you, turn away now.
This is another of those two-dollar-bin figures that I got at a local comic store. I always loved the idea of the capsule that comes with this, and always thought it would be a great display piece regardless of the figure.
This is Number 7 in the Fewture Devilman Action Figure Second Series. All of these were designed by illustrator Yasushi Nirasawa, based off of Go Nagai designs.
These figures are messed up, in the best way.
There are several versions of the figure, which was a common practice for Fewture at the time:
- Regular Ver.
- Acid Purple Ver.
- Acid Blood Glow Ver. (Limited to 666) - Superfest Exclusive
- Pewter (Toys R Us Exclusive)
Mico comes with some great accessories
- Light-up experiment chamber
- goo dress
- hands for build-a-figure
I don't know anything about Mico as a character. From what I gather Mico (the girl) merged with TollG (the Demon), and in this form she can shoot acid from her breasts and crotch.
I assume Go Nagai did a lot of drugs.
The figure has limited articulation - neck, shoulders, wrists, hips and ankles. But like others in the line, it's basically a statue with out much to do other than stand there.
Under that slime, she's nekkid. And the slime is removable. However somehow it's anything but sexy.
The hat comes off. According to HLJ she's supposed to glow under a blacklight, but I don't have one.
The real star of the show is the Experiment Chamber. This is the chamber that fused Mico and the Demon. It's made out of hard ABS plastic, and has a light up feature that i've never tried. It lights from both top and bottom. In addition, the helmet and arm clamps attach and are suspended by rubber tubes. You can get an idea what it looks like lit up here.
Batteries are not included.
