“ Brand: Toy Biz / Age: 5 Years+ „
Legolas is one of my personal favourites in the Lord Of The Rings trilogy. A loyal, noble elf who lives in the forests, yet with tremendous skill and physical prowess. He gets some great action scenes in the films and is often exchanging quips with his comrade Gimli, the drawf. Fans of the saga will be pleased to know that you can get an action figure of Legolas. The plastic figure is made by Toy Biz, who have produced a whole set of Lord Of The Rings toys. You can build up a collection of figures by tracking down the toys at online auction sites. Loose figures command about three to four pounds, whereas a boxed figure would be closer to eight pounds.
This poseable toy is about six or so inches and is in line height wise with the other toys in the range. The face accurately captures Orlando Bloom's delicate features. The petite lips and gentle facial features sit well with the pale milky skin. His soft blonde locks have been carved with a keen eye too and flow with a natural elegance down the head.
He benefits from a very well designed costume too. A wonderful set of robes with excellent moulding on the lower section giving it movement and life. Legolas' torso is quite masculine and athletic which I appreciated, as this echoes his form in the films. As we progress to the legs, nimble and neat looking thighs give him a manly stance. You can pose him at the head, arms and legs and create new poses. You can also strap on his weapon, a smart bow which is sleekly designed and fits with his elegance.
This is a charming and faithful recreation of the film character and will thrill sci fi and fantasy collectors. It will also appeal to ladies who have a crush on Orlando Bloom! A worthy and fun action figure.
