Mini Reviews: Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S Series 2 Cerisier, King Lance Steelblade, and Lacuna

A quick review of three figures from Vitvian H.A.C.K.S. from @BossFightStudio

I got three more figures from Bossfight Studio’s web store (had a buy 2 get a 3rd for half off deal) and I want to just do some quick reviews since they are similar to one I’ve reviewed before, with one having a unique feature. SO, here we go with some Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. mini reviews!

Cerisier, Sakura Elven Assasin

Cerisier is a Bossfight Studio web store exclusive. Sakura Elves are trained assassins for the Elf Queen who dye their skin in ink and have their voices magically removed. Cerisier has a unique head sculpt but the rest of her are reissued parts from the other elves. Her outfit, in pink, white and brownish red, is the same as Aspen and Aiyana as is the two daggers she comes with. Her crossbow, quarrels and quiver are from Narissa of the Withered Branch. The only new piece (though it came it the Elven accessory pack) is a piece to attach to the quiver so it can hook into the loop on her skirt.

Cerisier is armed with a crossbow and daggers.

Still the whole figure works well and looks great. The quarrels get lost way too easily, but are a nice touch. She is a good addition to my collection of elves

Her quiver hooks onto the back of her skirt.

King Lance Steelblade, King of Accord

The leader of the Knights of Accord, Lance was a orphan inducted into their ranks. He proved his skill as a knight and a commander and ended up becoming King when most of the high-borne knights and the King were killed. The figure is the same as the regular Knight of Accord, but with white armour and gold trim. His pants and undershirt are black and his loin cloth is purple. he has a purple caplet that you can swap out with another pauldron. Like the knight, he comes with an axe, sword with scabbard and a shield. with a purple design, instead of blue. He also comes with a Royal standard for the Knight of Accord.

Lance is sporting a royal white and gold ensemble with at purple cape so you know he’s king. THe crown helps, too.

The main head has removable hair so you can put on a helmet on the figure. The hair stays on better than Q’Al Varis’ and the helmet fits well. He has two helmets, one open and one with a visor. Rounding out, he has two spare heads so you can army build more knights. Once again, the figure is great and the accessories add so much to the figure.

With helmet on.
The Royal standard.

Lacuna – Cavern Faerie

Launa matata!

Deviating from the tiny, dragon fly-winged creatures we know from fables, Cavern faeries are human-sized magical creatures with bat wings who live in caverns. According to the Bio, Lacuna was driven out of her home by invading monsters, probably the Knights of Asperity. Distrustful of humans, Lacuna still seeks their help to aid them against the undead horde that invaded her land.

Here, Lacuna is armed with a…stick.

Lacuna features a different body type for the line: winged bodies. She has removable wings that you can swap for more open ones. He skin is light purple and she has white hair. Her two piece outfit is purple, silver and black and she has molded on goggles on her head. Her weapons are a wand with a crystal on it and a club/larger wand again sporting crystals.

Wings are on ball joints and attach to the back.

This figure shows the innovation of this line. The body type is used again with a gargoyle figure and there is a male winged demon in the newest wave. Lacuna is a excellent figure and I can’t wait for winged blanks to come out.

She has a pair of open wings, too. She is holding the wand.

So there are my three latest Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S figures. I pays to follow Bossfight studio on their Twitter as they occasionally have flash sales on their figures. I really like this line and I am looking forward to see what they do next. These figures can be found at the Bossfight Studio webstore and various resellers online and on eBay.

Review: Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S Series 2 – Q’Al Varis, Elven Ranger

Meet Q’Al Varis, the Elven Ranger from @BossFightStudio Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S.

Series 2 of Bossfight Studio’s Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. line has been pretty balanced with both male and female figures. We got several male humans, four female elves of various colours, and two sets of Orc males and females. A lot of the collectors, however, have been asking the same thing: Where are the female human knights and male elves? Well, the former should be answered later this year, the latter has request has been fulfilled with the newest wave that came out this past March. So I present to you: Q’Al Varis, the Elven Ranger.

Frot of package

According to the included bio, Q’Al Varis is the son of the Elven Queen. He, like so many Elven Rangers, travels the word to hone his skills ans learn new ones. He has joined forces with Lance Steelblade, King of Accord and is fast becoming the best swordsman (elf?) of the land. Or he can be anyone you want him to be.

Back.

The packaging is collector friendly, like most in this line, an allow you to remove the figure without damaging the card back. Why would you not want to damage the card? The art, that’s why. Again, the card is made specifically for this character and looks great. The bio is a nice touch, building the lore for this line. Of course, being resealable, you can alternate from having him displayed in package or out of it.

Q’Al Varis

Out of the package, the figure is well done. The armour is molded on , and is a combination of a leather tunic with blue arms. He has brown armguards that are removable. The bottom of his tunic is a separate piece and covers grey pants with brown boots. The whole thing is tied off with a green cape with gold accents on the collar. It is definitely a nice figure and reminds me of another figure I have in my collection (more on that later.)

Hood’s up!

The figure’s hair is removable, so you can use an optional hood piece. It is green like the cape and is put on the head before you reattach it to the figure. The is a second masked head as well. It looks like it was carved from wood and gives a nice option for army building.. The masked head can work both with or without the hood.

Masked head with the sword, Andkaba.

For weapons, he has a neat sword, called Andkaba in the bio. The blade is green and the hilt is gold. It fits nicely in his hands. He also comes with a bow, because what is a ranger without a ranged weapon? It is the standard bow we’ve seen before and comes with arrows with a gold arrow tip and green fletching. That’s the feathers at the other end. See, this blog can be educational!

The back pack with the quiver attached.

Additional accessories include a back pack and a quiver. The backpack consists of a molded bedroll and a rope and hook. The quiver has a spot to store the bow or sword as well as room for the arrows. It can attack eiter to the side of the bed roll or to the side of the figures belt. Apparently, because I have not been able to do it.

Bow at the ready.

So, there are several… issues with the figure that I find annoying. First, the hair does not stay on that well. Maybe they made the peg hole small to allow for posing without the hair and not have a big hole. It goes on fine, but pops off too easily. Second is the gummy plastic they made the backpack peg out of. I have a hell of a time trying to get it through the hole of the cape and into the back. I find it better to take off the cape, put the peg through the hole in the came, into the one in the back, but the cape around the neck and try not to knock it out while putting the head and hair back on. The ironic thing is that, if it had been hard plastic, I’d probably would have broke it by now.

Q’Al Varis next to LJN’s Advanced Dungeons and Dragons’ Peralay the Elf. Damn he was short!

Despite these nitpicks, I love this figure. It is nice to have another elf figure in my collection that is not Legolas. He has a look that, to me and many others online, seems to homage the Peralay figure from LJN’s Advanced Dungeon and Dragons line. Whether intentional or not, he is definitely his own character and fits right in with the HACKS world or any fantasy world..

“I’m sorry, Peralay, but I think we are going to go with him…”

Bossfight Studio’s Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. Series 2: Q’Al Varis is available now from the Bossfight web store and from various sellers online on on eBay. Prices and availability may vary by site.

Ladies love a bald-headed elf!

Review: Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S Series 2: Aiyana, Elven Archer, Autumn Guard

Meet the sharp end of the Elven Army: Aiyana, of the Autumn Branch.

Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. series two has covered many of the fantasy tropes we have come to expect. Knights, wizards, cave faires, orcs and the undead are all represented in this line. Elves are too and through these figures, Bossfight Studios sets the world they created from the ash of the Greek/Gorgon war. This figure is one of the Elf Kingdom’s warriors; hunting down enemies outside of their lands. This is Aiyana, of the Autumn Branch.

Shots blurry. Sorry

According to the bio, the Autumn Branch are the offensive fighters of the Elven Army. They patrol outside their lands in small groups, identifying threats and eliminating them. Aiyana is a leader of one of those groups and has a fierce reputation amongst the orc warlords.

Bio
Aiyana out of package

The figure is almost the same as Aspen, the Spring Branch Archer I reviewed in January. Aiyana has a more darker skin tone than Aspen , with brown painted on underwear underneath her outfit. Her outfit is in autumn colours, literally; her top, bottom leg and arm guards are all in brown with reddish-brown and orange highlights. Other than the colour, her outfit is the same as Aspen’s. The head sculpt is what’s new. Her face shape and reddish-brown hair gives Aiyana a unique look compared to the blonde, pale Aspen.

The head sculpt is the only thing not borrowed from the Aspen figure.
Bow at the ready.

Her accessories are similar as well. Aiyana comes with a bow, quiver and two knives, much like Aspen. They are all a lighter brown, matching the Autumn theme of the figure. Unlike Aspen, Aiyana does not come with an extra head, but does have six arrows compared to Aspen’s four. They have brown tips with brown feathers at the other end on a light brown shaft. Not all can fit in her quiver at once, but you can have her hold one at the ready like with Aspen

About four arrows can fit in the quiver. Knives fit on the sides.

I like what Bossfight is doing with their elves, and the bio help to piece together the world they inhabit. Currently there are four elves figures, the other two being Withered Branch (think dark elf) and Sakura branch (I think some sort of royal guard or special ops). All or them are female, which is fine, but that will change later in March when they release the male Elven Ranger, Q’Al Varis

She’s a fall right down to her underwear.

These figures are beautifully done, posable, fairly sturdy and are great in hand. It is good to know that Bossfight is continuing the figures with four more this year, at least along with more Bucky O’Hare, plus zombies, Sam and Max and more. With the Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. alone, Bossfight has a line that many collectors will find something that they like.

The girls of…before and after Summer.

All the Virtuvian H.A.C.K.S. figures are available through select online retailers, EBay or through Bossfight Studios themselves.  They are priced from $25 USD (about $34 CAD) but prices can vary by site. Thanks for reading my review.

Review: Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S Series 1: Serpentess Order Gorgon Horde

It’s Greeks versus Gorgons with Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S Series 1 Serpentess Order.

The Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S series is pretty unique. The creators set out to make figures and, while having human and humanoid characters, also chose to include some more imaginative creatures. The Gorgon horde is comprised of snake people, some with the lower half of a snake like Medusa. Bossfight Studio chose to design these creatures to look menacing but still be able to be posed and displayed. Some are themed after real-world snakes and some are just designed to look visually stunning. For this review, we will look at the all -white Serpentess Order figure.

In packaging

In the Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S fiction, the Serpentess order are servants of the Gorgon Sisters. They are fierce warriors and can also talk to the dead and temporarily raise them. They can be used as spies and interrogators as they can speak any language they encounter. There crystal weapons and armour are said to be unbreakable.

Back of package

Not they Gorgon horde are not actually Gorgon’s themselves; there are only three Gorgons; the sisters Stheno, Euryale and Medusa, who was cursed to have the lower half of a snake. their horde looks like lamia, who in some tellings are half woman, half snake. There are more humanoid soldiers in the Gorgon army, but one s like the Serpentess Order would definitely rattle even the toughest troops.

The figure can balance pretty good.

The figure is well done. While the top half is the same as the human figures, the lower half consist of 8 segments, from the abdomen to the tail. Each is connected with a ball joint. You can stand the figure up pretty easily, using the bottom half of the tail to balance the figure. If only the 1987 G.I. Joe Globulus figure had articulation like this.

The tail is articulated in several places
Armour and helmet

Her armour consists of a helmet and breast plate both molded in a translucent purple plastic. The helmet resembles a snake skull with skeletal tail running down the back. The armour is the same style seem with the Amazon warrior and Penthesila, with the only additional colour bein a blue symbol set between her breasts.. The armour looks great, with the white skin beneath adding to the look. The armour is removable, but it is not as flexible as the other ones I reviewed. I would advise caution when removing it, to avoid cracks or breakage.

A snake woman wielding two swords is pretty intimidating.

Her weapons are two long swords, with purple, see-though blades with greyish-blue handles. The swords seem to be make of tow pieces with the blade inserted and glued in, so I don’t think any scratched off paint from the handle would reveal translucent purple plastic. The swords look great are really add to the figure. rounding out the accessories are the set of extra hands, matching the ones already on and, curiously, the same Bossfight figure stand, which this figure can’t use. But an extra stand can’t hurt, right?

Overall this is a great figure. The design of the Gorgon army is what got me interested in this line. It is a well executed design and definitely shows how Bossfight Studios can innovate to bring us these uniques figure.

You can find these figures through online stores, eBay or directly from Bossfight Studios.

Review: Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. Series 2- Aspen, Spring Elven Archer

Bossfight Studios’ Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. enter a world of fantasy with Aspen the Spring Elf Archer

With the success of the first series of Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S figures from Bossfight Studios, the creators decided to switch up the setting for series 2.  Since they already had skeletons, snake-women and gorgons in their line, it makes sense to shift into a fantasy setting.  The line has human nights along with orcs, elves, fairies and the undead.  One of the first figures in this series is Aspen, the Elven archer.

img_2017

The package is in the usual style of this line. The package is collector friendly and the card art is excellent. As with the first wave, the figure is given a back story told on the card back.  Told from the view of the same time travelers from the series one bios, they are exploring this alternate timeline that resulted from the Gorgon invasion.  Aspen is a member of the Spring Guard, who patrols the Elven homelands against invaders.  She is cautious, but friendly, freely talking to outsiders who do not pose a threat.

img_2019

img_2057
Aspen armed with her bow and arrows.

The figure is of a blonde elf woman, with pale skin and dressed in a leafy green outfit, as are all Spring Elf patrollers (the Autumn elves, those who hunt down threats external to their lands, are in a brown outfit.)  The articulation is the same as the other figures in this line, with a good range of motion possible.  Aspen’s hair is a separate piece and her ears are pointy, as one would expect from an elf figure.  Her pupils are painted blue and there is some colour added to her lips.  She’s got a large forehead, but overall, it is a pretty sculpt.

img_2063
Do elves even wear underwear?

Removing her outfit, again we see the body is made in the skin tone plastic, with no paint save her underwear, which is more brief-like than the Amazons’ thongs.  The two piece outfit is in two tones of green, with leafy details around the collar and the belt.  The top is looped around the neck and the chest; you have to take off the head and torso to remove it.  The skit works similar to the Amazons, where you take off the torso and slip it over the abdomen onto the hips.  She has the loop on the back of the skirt to store a weapon.

img_2064
The top and skirt look like something a woodland elf would wear.

img_2065
The quiver holds her arrows and knives.

As for weapons, being an archer, she comes with a bow and arrows.  The bow is light brown with a dark brown grip.  There is no bow string, but there are notches for those incline to add one.  She comes with 5 arrows; each has a brown shaft, with metal grey tips on one end and feathers on the other.  The feathers can fit in between the index and middle finger on each hand so Aspen can be posed drawing her bow.  She also comes with a quiver that pegs into her back and can hold her arrows.  It also holds two small daggers for close-up fighting.  They hold in her hands well, despite being small.  Her last accessory is another head.  This head is blond with bigger ears than Aspen.  You could use this head to army build your own group of Spring elves, if you so wish.

img_2061
Knives fit firmly in her hands

img_2062
The extra head adds some customization options.

There is nothing more I could say about this figure that I have not already covered in the last two reviews.  I like the fantasy setting for this line.  There are not too many fantasy lines out there that are not Lord of the Rings related and none that are as posable.  I hope to see a male elf figure in this line; there are male and female orc figures that have been released.  I seen pictures of the male elf ranger (sporting colours of the old Paraley figure from the old LJN Advanced Dungeons and Dragons toys of the early 1980’s) but have not heard about a release date.  Still the line has orcs, cave fairies and demons (with articulated wings), undead knights and dragon hunters.  They are definitely worth checking out more.

Review: Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S Series 1: Penthesilea, Amazon Commander

With our second Vitruvian HACKS review, we look at the Amazon Commander and I don’t mean Jeff Bezos.

With the setting of Ancient Greece and the rich mythological and historical material of the that time period, Bossfight Studios had their choice of characters to bring into their Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. line.  Indeed, they made figures of those with some historical basis (King Leonidas of Sparta) to figues from the myths and legends of the time (Achilles).  Since they included Amazons as a faction in this story, it made sense to include a named Amazon that figured into the story of Achilles.  So, we get Penthesilea, commander of the Amazons.

In Bossfights story behind the line, Penthilsea, daughter of Ares, is one Amazon’s Twelve Champions.  She led the Amazon army in the war against the Gorgons, who were championed by a brainwashed Achilles, her lover.  In the actual myths and stories about Penthesilea, she was an Amazon queen and fought for Troy in the Trojan War.  She confronted Achilles in battle only to be slain by him.  Depending on the version you read, Achilles either fall in love with her before he kills her or afterwards.  Either way, that’s messed up.

Front of the package featuring nice card art

The package is what we’ve come to expect with this line.  The figure and accessories are clearly displayed, the card are is unique to that character and the figure can be removed without damaging the package too much.  the back showed Penthesilea’s bio and cross-sell pictures for waves 4 through 7.

Back

A face that has seen so much battle…

The figure itself is build just like the Amazon Warrior from my last review.  The head is different, though, with her back hair in a pony tail and white bags that give her a more mature look.  Her eyes are also blue, which helps to give the figure personality..  The rest of the body is the standard female body with minimum paint save the black underwear painted on.  The armour is where the colour is.  Her bracelets and shin guards are all gold as is the breast plate, save some black clasps.  The skirt is blue with gold highlights in the belt and on the buttons along the fringe of the dress.  There is also a loop for her sword on the back.  As with the last figure, the armour is removable (with some disassembly of the figure) and is easy to get back on.

Armour fits in with the Ancient Greek setting.
Shown with the larger sword and her shield

For accessories. Penthesilea come with three swords.  Two of them are like the two with the Amazon warrior, but with gold handles and silver blades.  The third sword looks like a larger straight sword, again with golden handle and silver blade.  The shield and black and gold, with a design on it recreating art from that time.  She also comes with an extra set of hands and the black Bossfight Studios stand.

Can’t be and Amazon without some swords!

The articulation is the same as all the H.A.C.K.S. female figures.  She is very poseable, with a wide range of motion.  The concerns I have with the Amazon Warrior are the same here, with small pegs at the wrist and ankles you can’t help to worry about breakage.  Again, has not happened but definitely something to consider.

Sword fits in the loop on the back.

These are great figures, though.  We haven’t had a proper Greek mythology lien since Clash of the Titans since the early 1980’s, and, to a lesser extend, the Hercules and Xena lines in the 1990’s.  One day, I would like to get a gorgon figure, because that is where this line excels, at the snake bodies and the unique take on the Gorgon warriors.  Being late to this line does pose an issue, but there is a chance you could find on eBay or even from Bossfight Studios themselves for a decent price.  This figure was about $35 CAD though an eBay reseller (Kokomo Toys.)

Comparison with Marvel Gamerverse  Spider-man (Hasbro) and DC Multiverse Arkham Knight Batman (Mattel.)

Thnaks for reading my review.  Next I will review a figure from Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. series Two.  This series is a fantasy wave with knights, wizards, elves and orcs,  We will be looking at the Elven archer Aspen.  See you then!

Review: Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S Series 1: Amazon Warrior (Ares Army)

With the internet and e-commerce, it is much easier for companies to find an audience for their products.  Sometimes smaller companies use sites like Kickstarter to gauge interest in their product an raise the capital to start production.  Sometimes this fails, but other times the goal is reached, even surpassed and the desired product get made and released and a whole line is born.  That is what happened with Bossfight Studios and their toyline Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S.

Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S started out as an idea for a line of easily customizable figures.  H.A.C.K.S stands for Highly Articulated Character Kit System.  The figures feature removable equipment, heads, limbs and torsos that you can swap with other figures in the line (or those using the H.A.C.K.S system.)  They also needed a theme to get people interested in the figures themselves.  So Bossfight Studios went with a Greeks versus Gorgon theme, drawing on the history and the myth of Greek culture.  Spartans, amazons, skeletons and Gorgons all fill this line.  One of them is the Amazon Warrior that I will be reviewing.

Figure inside the package.  The card art is quite nice.

The Amazon Warrior (Ares Army) is one of three standard Amazon warrior figures in the line.  They are all the same figure, with the same accessories, but vary in the colour of their skin and their equipment.  The Ares Army version has pale skin, with blue war pain on the face and blue paint/tattoos on her torso, arms and legs..  The package is nice, with the figure clearly displayed and colourful art on the card back.  The package is collector friendly, allowing to remove the figure and repalce them with no damage to the package.  The back has cross-sell pictures of other figures in the line and places this one as wave 5.5.  There is also a bio on the back (the same for all versions of the Amazon Warrior) written from the perspective of time travellers witnessing these events.

Back of package

The paint on the figure’s head is clean.  The aforementioned blue war paint is done nicely without any slop.  Her eyes are just white with a black pupil/iris, with is fine for a figure on this scale.  Her hair is short and sculpted on an painted brown.  Her body is molded in the flesh coloured plastic, with the only paint being the war paint designs and a thong  painted on the crotch.  The war paint designs are done well and the underwear is there for modesty.

The face is nicely sculpted and painted
Removing the armour, you can see more of the paint detail on the body.  I don’t think the thong is historically accurate, though.

The armour is removable and is made of a soft, rubbery plastic.  You  do have to disassemble the figure to remove it, but it is easy to take off and get on.  The armour is two pieces, the breast plate and the skirt.  The breast plate is all black, but with detailing showing clasps and rivet.  The skirt is black too, but an almost bluish black around the waist and a darker black for the skirt.  There is also some silver detailing  on the sculpted studs..  The bracers and the shin guards are black as well and are removable (but are tough to get off.   Lastly is the helmet, which is black with a dark blue plume.  It is a little harder than the armour, but is pliable enough to fit onto her head and be removed easily without scratching the paint..

Armour is removable
Helmet and shield

For accessories, we’ll start at the shield.  It is silver with a blsvk edge and inside.  There is a picture of an amazon warrior, inspired by actual historical art, on her shield.  The back has a slot to slide her lower arm in and a handle to grasp the shield.  It stay on pretty well.  The Amazon also comes with two swords, a long and a short one.  Both have a  black hilt and silver blade.  The smaller one even fits in the loop on her skirt.  Finally, there is the spear.  It is also  black with the blades being a dull silver.  Other accessories include a Bossfight stand and two extra hands.

Shield design
Swords
Smaller sword can fit in the loop in the back

The articulation is great on the figure.  Her head moves side to side well, can tilt and moves up and down a fair ways.  The shoulders are on ball joints with the movement not hindered by her armour.  The elbow is a singe joint but bends greater than 90 degrees.  The wrist move in and out and rotates all the way around.  The legs can spread apart wide enough, but not to a split and they can kick forward a bit but not back too much.  The knees are double jointed and work well and the ankles can move forwards and back and pivot.  The head hand and feet are removable; in fact the entire body can be take apart.

Ball joint in the torso

The figure is pretty sturdy overall, I can’t help worrying a bit when I pop off the head or arms to swap out armour or limbs.  The torso barbell is large enough, but the pegs for the hands, feet and even the head are smaller and, while it hasn’t happened with these figures, I have had breakage happen to some of my imported figures.  I have seem reviewers on You Tube that had no issues with the human/gorgon figures breaking (and one with the skeleton) but, as with everything, be careful when you pop out a joint or head.

With this being from a small company, the Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. are not in stores.  They can be bought on Ebay and some toy/collectable websites.  They can also be bought directly from Bossfight Studios.  They can also be a bit expensive, retailing for about $25 USD (approx $35 CAD) plus shipping.

Thanks for reading my review.  Next time, we will look at another figure from this line, Penthesilea, the Amazon Commander.  Until then…
