ToyFarce: Four Horsemen Studios Figura Obscura Krampus and Father Christmas Review and Images

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

This week, we're having a look at 2 Figura Obscura figures, the Krampus figure from last year, and the Father Christmas figure from this year, from the Four Horsemen Studios. Both figures were revealed and released a bit before Christmas 2021 and 2022. 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 review of the Figura Obscura Headless Horseman, which came out for Halloween can be found here.

First, the Figura Obscura Krampus, from Christmas 2021, is a gorgeous figure. The box art is great, it comes with a magnetic sleeve that can be used as a background. Krampus comes with 2 extra hands, his tail, a bundle of sticks, a barrel bag (with surprise items inside!), a rope to hold the bag, a pair of chained handcuffs and bells. The Krampus figure itself looks amazing, with its hooves, and a very demonic head sculpt with his tongue out (a second headsculpt with closed mouth would have been cool, though). The figure is pitch black with a few highlights. A second version of it, entirely red, was announced later and is still available at BigBadToyStore.





Spoiler: Surprises from the barrel bag!


When the Four Horsemen Studios teased that there would be a Figura Obscura 'drop' during the holiday season, lots of folks expected some sort of warrior/viking version of Santa Claus. In the end, Father Christmas was announced, using a more classic look for Old Saint Nick. The figure also has a beautiful box with amazing art and a background/sleeve. Father Christmas comes with soft goods (robe and ... under-robe?), along with a ton of accessories: a second head sculpt (shorter beard and slightly rounder features), 2 crowns of holly leaves (had to google that), a soft goods hood, a large wooden staff that can hold the lantern, a bag full of toys (which are not removable), a doll, a small drum, a trumpet (TOYFARCE APPROVED!), a sack full of surprises (which also includes surprises items in it!) and his very own Christmas tree (I had grabbed a few in anticipation, and it turns out he has his own!). When you undress him, you can see that Father Christmas has really hit the gym and done his cardio, as his body is not at all the round jolly Santa Claus type under the robe!







Spoiler: Surprises from Father Christmas Bag! ... Also, Trumpet <3

"What did you expect? I switched to oat milk and sugar-free cookies."

I'm really loving that line, and can't wait to see what's next. Cupid for Valentine's Day? Easter Bunny??

From Fresh Monkeys Naughty or Nice to the Four Horsemans Figura Obscura, were in for a Christmas themed treat. Im looking for Santas reindeers, Im looking at you, Rudolph; and a sleigh, would be nice too. Its these toys that are worth displaying this season without being out of place!

I think it could be the typical anything I dont like is bad opinion that is sadly too common among collectors these days ?

yeah likely you are correct, not sure why collectors like that feel it important to voice that opinion, just because you don't like something doesn't mean it's bad or others shouldn't Oh well.

I think they're great. I put Krampus out last year and both out this year right next to our old nativity set and got lots of compliments - Santa reminds people of the old fashioned European style St. Nick or the old ornate porcelain figures but done with real cloth with gold accents and it just looks amazing. None of us had heard of Krampus until the figure came out but now they are both part of our Christmas tradition.
