This week, just in time for Halloween
, we're having a look at the Headless Horseman
figure from the Figura Obscura
line by the Four Horsemen Studios
. The Figura Obscura
line is a new line of figures that features characters from myths, legends and folk tales, giving them that nice Four Horsemen Studios
spin. The first figure was Krampus
, which came out last year during the holiday season (I'll post a review of it around that time), and the Headless Horseman
is the second figure of the line, and was revealed for Halloween
Who better to represent the Halloween
season than a nice Pumpkin-headed Headless Horseman
, am I right? The classic headless character of Sleepy Hollow
fame is now the perfect figure to display in your house during the Halloween season, thanks to the Four Horsemen Studios
' amazing depiction of the character. First off, the box art by Nate Baertsch
is gorgeous, front and back. The box comes with a sleeve held by magnets, that can also be used as a backdrop
comes with 2 different jack-o-lantern heads
(not so headless anymore, are ya?
), a neck attachement
if you want to display him sans-head, 2 extra pairs of hands
, including one with a head peg
in it (clever!
), a sword
and a beautiful black wired cape
, with red lining
. The horse comes with an extra "wild" mane
. Yep, even the horse has accessories!
What a glorious, beautiful set
. The 3 head options are great, with the jack-o-lantern
, the jack-o-lantern on fire
(with detachable fire!
), and the neck attachment
where you see inside the neck. The sculpt and details on the suit and body are the usual top notch from the Horsemen
. The horse also looks incredible with its dark tones and red highlights and red eyes. Full disclosure, I had a couple of issues
with mine: the chain from the cape wasn't attached on one side and got separated from the cape, but I McGyvered
it, attaching it to one of the hooks from the medallions, and the peg from the hand was not glued properly and kept staying in the head when trying to remove it, but I fixed that. Otherwise, great set, fun to pose, looks great in every way. I just wish there was a stand
to pose it with the horse standing on its back legs, so you can pose it like on the box.
"Only time can answer that question, for few know what characters the Figura Obscura keys will unlock next.
" Well, I can't wait to see what the next figure will be. Keep them coming!
"Well, one of us is going to have to go home and change...
