Four Horsemen Studios Figura Obscura The Ghost of Jacob Marley Review and Images

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

This week, we're having a look at the Ghost of Jacob Marley figure from the Figura Obscura line by the Four Horsemen Studios! Released in early December, the Ghost of Jacob Marley is another character issue from litterature, this time from Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol. In the story, the ghost of the ghost of the former business partner of Ebenezer Scrooge visits him to warn him about his fate that could be similar to his, and that 3 Christmas Spirits would visit him. You know the story... Raise your hands if you've also re-watched a movie version of it since the figure was announced!

The packaging comes with the usual sleeve with magnets, with a nice painting inside to use as a diorama, which is always a nice little bonus with the Figura Obscura line. This one also has the 'Scrooge and Marley' sign inside the box. Like the Masque of the Red Death figure, it also came with a little booklet with the story, along with a holiday card. The booklet does say 'Stave One' (yes, I also read Boba Fett's Starship at first), so I have a feeling we'll get to the other parts eventually... A Christmas Spirits 3-pack? An army-builder ghost figure with all 3 heads? Stay tuned!






The Ghost of Jacob Marley is an amazing figure. It comes with 2 head sculpts (one with its jaw held shut with a head wrap, and one with mouth loose, wide open), 3 extra pairs of hands, Marley's chains which have various cash boxes, ledgers and a safe attached to them, 2 door knockers which re-use the head sculpts (clever!) and extra keys. The figure looks fantastic, with lots of details on the suit, and the boots and bottom of his coat are transluscent. Ghastly! The chains and all the various parts in them also have a lot of details and look great, even if they can sometimes easily get tangled when you're moving the figure, or changing its head/hands (it adds to Marley's penance!). Another great figure for the Figura Obscura line.








Spoiler: The safe includes a secret... Keep scrolling if you wanna see what's in it!
