Bloodshot, the Valiant comics super hero is hitting theaters this summer starring Vin Diesel as a modern vision of the classic character. McFarlane Toys has dropped the first figure for the movie featuring the likeness of Vin Diesel in his baseline outfit of pants and tee with the Bloodshot logo. The trailer shows him suited up in multiple other sets of gear so if this moves expect some more to come our way I’m sure.
The release features a basic look, but is actually a really solid action figure. It shows what McFarlane can do on the articulation front. All major points are addressed – double joints, rockers, full elbow range, wrist movement, torso joints, butterfly shoulders, toe articulation, head range. It’s a really great template that could be ported over to many different action based characters. The head sculpt is also on point for Vin Diesel, so capturing actor likenesses over at McFarlane can be achieved as well. Both of these areas of focus have potential to slide over to the DC figures down the road so it was a welcome surprise once in hand. Plus, Bloodshot is cool and I can see some Fast customs being made from this easy. Bottom line, it’s a fun well done figure and if you dig Bloodshot, Vinny, or feel like making a Toretto / Pitch Black custom, then it’s worth a pickup!
