Welcome to a brand new edition of Hits and Misses as members of the Vinylmation Kingdom give us their thoughts on a series and this week we take a look at Villains 4
RogPalmerUK – The Villains series has always been one of those series that has never fully connected with me, while some Disney villains are simply amazing characters but I was never a fan of the split faces over the Vinylmation and I have to say I think the move to more “traditional” style is much better and I went straight after a Maleficent figure when I could as it was a fantastic figure that I wanted to get. I also really like the Rhino and Aladdin guard but mainly because I’ve been battling them in Disney Infinity!
Jeremy Arruda – For this set only 3 figures stick out at me. The first is Gantu. He looks incredible! Lilo and Stitch is one of my favorite movies so can’t wait to add him to my collection. Second hit would be the chaser. He looks very cool in this form. And Mcleach would be my third hit as i think the human face transfers well.
Jay Phlibitijiblitts – Overall I am pleased with the set but there were a few that stood out for me and some that could have been done differently. Hits for me in the set are:
RogPalmerUK – For me the whole series is a big miss, after 4 series, I still only have a couple of them, so while the designs are a big improvement on the previous sets. But for me I now don’t need much of an excuse not to buy things. For me this series doesn’t have many mainstream villains as we seem to be getting more sidekick and guards, hopefully by moving to smaller set sizes, they can slow things down a little.
Jeremy Arruda – First misses are the Hercules characters. Very disappointed in these. Wish Pain and Panic had been separate vinyls, and the cyclops is plain boring. And none of the other characters honesty jump out at me. They’re all pretty bland.
