Boss Fight Studio’s Vitruvian Action Figures


Boss Fight Studio has launched their Kickstarter project for Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. (highly articulated character kits system) For their first line of original action figures their theme is Greek mythology. The action figure will be Greek warriors and Gorgons. If you’ve follow this blog for a while you know I collect Medusa figures. So I’m very excited about these.

I’ve wanted these figures ever since Mike’s collection posted a preview of the Medusa from the G.I. Joe convention. I’ve already supported the kickstarter. I hope they hit the stretch goals cause they have some more awesome figures in their proposed waves 2 and 3.

Fantasy Faceoff Don’t look or Don’t look away


So who would win?

Look at Medusa and turn to stone. The Weeping Angel is stone until you look away. But how does Medusa know if the Angel has been turned to stone? Don’t look, don’t look away, don’t even blink, stalemate, checkmate?

Another Monday Means Another Medusa


Not actually called Medusa, but you know they based this character on the gorgon. This is the She-Demon from the Hercules the Legendary Journeys tv show. Toy Biz made action figures from the Hercules and Xena show during the nineties. She-Demon: Stone Strike Tail is a nice toy, not as detailed as current action figures but it’s a mythological character and those are always cool to collect.

Although her appearance suggests a modern interpretation of Lamia, the She-Demon’s powers and story more closely mirror those of Medusa.

From Wave Two of the ToyBiz HTLJ 5 inch action figure line. The She-Demon as seen in “The Wrong Path.” The She-Demon has a spring-loaded tail. To make her attack, you pull back the tail and then press a button at the bottom to make it spring forward. The She-Demon also comes with a “stone” face mask which will fit over the heads and shoulders of the Hercules and Iolaus figures so you can turn them into stone!

The Medusa tail has been used in Ninjago snake minifigs. I remember seeing some of the figs before and thought they were cool. I checked E-bay to see how much the figs costs. I hit search and boy was I surprised. Look what showed up as a related search. Woman’s home companion cookbook. What does Ninjago have to do with cooking? Or is it the snakes that matched the cooking theme? I haven’t searched for cook books.

Giving benefit of doubt maybe Moms search Ninjago for their kids and eBay marks recognized the same user had looked at cook books.


More Medusa.
