It's Wednesday and you know what that means... ToyFarce review!

Today, we're having a look at the Stranger Things figures from Bandai, from their "The Void Series" line. It's not often that I come across action figures that I can legitimately say are terrible, but here we are. I do love Stranger Things and already had all the McFarlane Toys ones, so I figured I'd grab those (stupid completionist brain...). The packaging is nice, though! This should be a good one...

The first wave had Hopper in his prison uniform from season 4 and Eleven in that classic outfit that she had at the end of season 3 (I had to google that, this is not a classic look). They both come with a total of zero accessories, which is always a bummer. The figures are over-articulated (yes, there is such a thing!) and the articulations do NOT look good on them. Just look at Eleven's pants. Also, the likenesses are not great. Eleven's head is made of really shiny plastic, while it looks like Hopper is wearing a ton of make up. Reminder that Bandai is the same brand that also does those amazing S.H.Figuarts figures from Dragon Ball Z, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, etc... (although, I believe those are from Bandai America, the US branch of Bandai).

The second wave had an even worse Eleven figure, with her lab outfit from season 4, and everyone's favorite metalhead, the leader of the Hellfire Club, Eddie. Both figures also come with zero accessories... That Eleven figure looks even less like Millie Bobbie Brown, has the weirdest proportions and the articulations look really bad. On the other end, Eddie is a pretty fun figure. Sure, he barely looks like the actor (or looks like him when he will be 50 years old), but it's pretty nice to have that character as a toy. Also, we need more metalhead figures in general.

The Demogorgon is actually the redeeming figure of that line (so far), as it is the only one that is actually better than the McFarlane Toys version of it. It is way more articulated, and you can have him in a lot of nice poses. He comes with 2 stands, which are needed for him to stay up (unless you put him on all fours). A nice monster to have, and the only figure from that line that is really worth the price.

Only one more figure has been announced from that line, the season 4 main villain Vecna. Hopefully, it is more like the Demogorgon and less like the other 4...
