Action Figure Review 90s Edition: Tyrant from Resident Evil by Toy Biz (Confirmed: Eh)
Mr.X/ Super Tyrant and William G-3/ William G-4, in case you're wondering, both of which feature a transforming gimmick). You could probably squeeze this guy in with your Palisades collection scale-wise if you wanted to, but both Palisades and NECA made their own better Tyrants, so there really wouldn't be much point.
Mosquitor. Mine's all dried up, though, so I can't say how well it worked originally, but it sure don't work well now. Eh...
Bumble from Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, and while I like the Bumble, that look just doesn't work for the Tyrant. I think it's the teeth. Anyways, it is kind of cool that Toy Biz used clear plastic to create the Tyrant's exposed heart (which always seemed like a weakness for a biologically engineered super weapon) and the tumor (or something) on his right thigh. Still, I'm just really underwhelmed by this guy.
Can you tell I like Resident Evil? Here's just a few other Resident Evil Reviews we've done on the site.- From Toy Biz, I've reviewed: Video Game Superstars Presents: Hunter & Chimera, Chris Redfield & Cerberus, Forest Speyer & Maggot Zombie, Jill Valentine & Web Spinner, Claire Redfield & Zombie Cop, Hunk & Zombie, Leon S. Kennedy & Licker, Tyrant/ Mr. X , William Birkin & Sherry , andWilliam G3/ William G4. From NECA I've reviewed: Crimson Head , Hunter, Licker , Tyrant, and Leon Kennedy- R.P.D. Outfit (SDCC 2006 Exclusive). I've only looked at one figure from Moby Dick's Biohazard 3 line, and it was Claire Redfield (Leather Jacket Version).
Big Bad Toy Store doesn't have any Tyrant figures in stock currently, but they do have lots of other cool Resident Evil stuff. Head on over there and check it out!
