So what if this figure's been out for months already and is sold out in most stores locally? I can't imagine myself skipping a review...errr...a late review...i mean, uh, a showcase of this updated incarnation of the Lord of the Burning Hells. The Lord...or Lady of Terror - Diablo. Prepare yourself for a fanboy's showcase article...
First up, the obligatory background storytelling, yada, yada...I am a self-confessed Diablo addict back in the day, I was there during the Dungeon Crawl long before Prince Aidan was Prince Aidan, back when The Butcher is a scary son of a bit!# - Fresh Meat anyone?
I was also present during the epic walk across Sanctuary to hunt down the Dark Wanderer (who turned out to be Prince Aidan) - from the Rogue Encampment, to the sewers of Lut Gholein, the murky swamplands of Kurast to the Pandemonium Fortress and up, up, up Mt. Arreat for a final confrontation at Worldstone Keep with the Lord of Destruction. It is only fitting I join in for the third (and 3.5th) time against the heir of, you guess it, Prince Aidan aaaaannnndddd during the expansion versus a renegade angel who is just so cool wielding those awesome hand scythes...it is an atrocity for me to miss this one out comrades...
|If i spoiled the game for you, you deserve it, slow poke...|
|Verily, this tail and it's a looooong one|
Details however are still superb for a smaller scale figure. The colors, albeit duller, match well with the video game version.
Oh, she comes with a stand also, a small, black, generic, circular thingie that is so boring...what the hell NECA? You could have at least provided a fiery stand or a replica of the floor from the final boss fight. It's not much of a help either since you can use her tail for counter-balance when displaying her.
|PLAY IT!!! YOU F#!KING PLAY...oh, pardon me for that overused line...|
|She's got curves, she's rocking a sexy waistline and of course... Bewbs...|
|RRRIIIIINNNNNNG! Hello NECA! If Mephisto and Baal are too much for you to tackle, at least, please make a Malthael figure, please, please, please...|
