Voting rounds 1 and 2 chose the property and character to represent FANtastic Exclusive 2007. The victor? The 7th Kingdom’s Elephant Swordsman! Now in round 3, action figure enthusiasts will get the opportunity to choose the size and amount of articulation for the blade-wielding pachyderm in relation to last years’ FANtastic Exclusive champ, Xetheus: Champion of Mynothecea!
The Four Horsemen (http://www.FourHorsemen.biz
) have this to say about voting in round 3, “This year, Round 3 is a bit more complex than some of the other voting rounds we've had in the past. While we'd LOVE to do a huge Animal Realm Warrior figure to go with Xetheus, we never really planned for the Elephant Swordsman to be all that much bigger than Xetheus. But this whole project is about the FANs…not us. As always, we’re going to let the FANtastic FANatics make the final decision for us.”
Fans will be able to choose between three different size variations for the Elephant Swordsman, each with their own pros and cons as well as differences in possible articulation points and types of articulation, as listed on the FANtastic Exclusive website (http://www.FANtasticExclusive.com
). The three different sizes to choose from will be “Approximately 8 to 9 inches”, “Around 10 to 11 inches”, and the biggie: “12 inches or larger”.
Size comparison images displaying the Elephant Swordsman next to Xetheus are provided on the site to help you visualize the difference in mass between the two.
A heated discussion about the size issue is already in full swing on the FANtastic Exclusive message boards, so you may want to make sure that you drop in and add your opinion to the mix before you make your final decision.
FANtastic Exclusive 2007! It ain’t the way you swing that trunk. It’s the SIZE (and possibly the articulation too…)!
