Twilight Zone 3.75″ Scale Series 2 Figures

Like the Twilight Zone Series 1 Figures, these make for perfect retro Kenner style releases. The combination of a truly classic license and overall nice sculpts make for solid figures. Most fans will likely keep these in packaging, which is fine as the cardbacks are really well done. They feature a nice screen cap from the related episode and have a vintage early 1960’s feel to them. On the back, it has a check list of all the series 1 and 2 figures.
Each figure is painted in black, white and grayscale colors. These are retro style figures, so they each have about 5 points of articulation. The sculpts are quite nice for the wave. Each character is instantly recognizable. The head sculpts, especially on Dr. Bernardi and the Nurse, are excellent. In fact, you get three figure from the “Eye of the Beholder” episode. This fantastic entry in the television series is a major fan favorite, and getting the Doc, Nurse and a Patient allows for instant scene recreations. The other stand out is the Three-Eyed Venusian. The “diner owner” from “Will the Real Martian Please Stand Up?” has a removable bus boy hat. This allows you to show or hide his third eye, which is really nice touch.
The figures do lack accessories. There’s nothing included, save for the jack in the box with Anthony Fremont. Also, paint apps are a bit messy in spots, with bleeding edges or misaligned application in some eyes. These are really only noticeable when looking at the images or very closely. Overall, these are definitely recommended for fans of the show. Series 3 is on the horizon as well. That wave featuring characters all from the episode “Five Characters in Search of an Exit”, which may be one of the best episodes of Season 3.
