I think I like the closed mouth sculpt better.

Looks a bit like Elvis.

Those 12 inch head sculpts have freaky faces.

The 8" heads are absolutely not a shrunken version of the 12" heads. I can't understand why. The 12" heads are much nicer. The faces on the 8" heads are too high. The eyeline should be at the middle point of the head.

So do I.

I guess there is no motorcycle in the pipeline.

I love that the hands are actually sculpted gloves. Nice detail.

Same here.
I did notice the loose posed blue version has black gloves?
However when they show all loose figures together they are white gloves?

Slightly higher price point? Pushing $30 for 8" figure. $80 for the 12".

That bike would be perfect for my 12" Fonz.

I'll probbaly end up getting one of the 12 inch figures in white. But I'll wait until they're sold loose. $80.00 is just too much money for these figures. And the packaging remains too oversized. They could really reduce costs (and the price) if they toned down the packaging.

or go with Mego style boxes that would be just as resealable as those waste of plastic bubbles.

I like the blue suit better. Only thing I don't like is the back of the helmet.

Yikes! The King of the Daredevils looks like the "I grew up & got ugly" version of Haley Joel Osment.:sad:

Funny thing is if they just gave us one head sculpt in a two suit option,we would complain that they should have given us two head sculpts...LOL

You know what bugs me? I'm interested in the 8" versions of these, but the photos on their site for the 8" figures are clearly pics of the 12"... which are superior. I'd like to see the close ups of the 8" heads and outfit. I already know I'm not thrilled with the headsculpt, but the outfit... Can anyone tell if the 8" has the leather look that the 12" has?

All these complaints about the head sculpt... for christ sakes, go back to the original Megos and you'll recall some of those head sculpts looked goofy... think about it.

I'm fine with it all. At least they are making them. Can't say that about a lot of other old icons and TV shows. All these will look great in my showcase. FIG. INC are trying to keep megolike action figures alive. Got to give them credit.

Hi, I thought about it, and I'm still going to complain about it because they could have easily reduced the size of the great 12" sculpts to 8" and I would have been thrilled. :)

I love this figure. I would have been over the moon if I got this as a kid and I knew very little about Evel. It is just going to take me a bit to accept eating the 30.00 for each. Eventually I will get both the 8 inch versions.

I asked Farrow (the person who sculpted the heads) about this and he said the 8 inch sculpt was in fact the same as the 12 inch, but there were details lost when they shrank the head. The fullness in the hair was the biggest issue he noticed.

If that's true, then they REALLY goofed up the process.

I would love to see some reviews with some detail shots of the figure loose. Not hearing anything.

I saw thes at the store today, Really nice figures, great job on the motorcycle suits. the sculpts are nice and clean, with good detail, but the likeness is off a bit. It's a weird expression, the package has about a half dozen pictures of Evel on the back and he doesn't have that expression in any of them. I still think it's a great looking figure and am looking forward togetting one soon.

After seeing your review,Man I'm totally torn on this one.
I like both figures but prefer the head from the blue figure and want the white jumpsuit.
I actually didn't even know they were out yet.
Obviously getting both solves this but I'm only getting one for now...lol

Oh wow! Thanks so much! I completely missed that. Great review too! Nice pics and very informative. I've been thinking about getting a couple. Still on the fence about whether I should go after the 12 inch versions. The 8 inch look awfully nice though. Thanks again for the link! :yes:

Wow did this shot bring back memories of my racing days. What chassis is under the body. I ran on road road course for years.
I'm not thrilled with the sculpts, and the open mouth version reminds me of Beavis and Buttheads expression. The suits look good, Smart of them to offer both the white and blue versions. Surprised they didnt do a motorcycle. Seems like a no brainer. Even done as a display only piece. So who is making the canyon cycle and the dragster and funny car customs? Those were my faves.

I'm not a fan, but in-person, the figs *are* stunning...face sculpts, costumes, amazing glove deets...simply nicely done, IMO
