In 1981, an incredibly ambitious animated film based on Heavy Metal magazine was released. The film was an anthology that brought together major Hollywood talent, as well as a number of legendary rock artists for an experience that was unlike anything that had been released at the time. The movie, like the magazine that inspired it, was geared strictly towards adult audiences, with heavy violence and plenty of nudity throughout. Heavy Metal featured a wrap around story of a green sphere, known as the Loc-Nar, that tells a young girl of the terrors it has witnessed.
Incendium has released two new action figures based on the cult film. The first is Taarna, a warrior bent on destroying the Loc-Nar. The next is Nelson, a World War II tail gunner reanimated by the Loc-Nar as a zombie. The figures stand at 5″ tall, and come packed in specialized card backs. They are priced at $29.95 each, and can be purchased directly from Incendium Online (sold out at the moment).
Today I have a photo gallery and review of the new figures. Incendium was kind enough to send over the figures for review. After the jump you can see my thoughts on the figures, as well as a full photo shoot.
