31 Days of Toy Terror: Scarecrow from Playmobil Mystery Figures by Playmobil
The articulation is pretty standard for modern Playmobil figures: the waist is hinged so the figure can stand or sit, the shoulders swivel, the wrists swivel, and the head swivels. There isn't a wide range of movement, but simple and subtle poses look nice. The Mystery Figures actually come unassembled, so you'll have to snap together the figure. Don't worry, instructions are included.
This guy's kind of fun and wasn't expensive at all. If you happen to still have the Playmobil Mystery Figures around you and you like scarecrows or spooky Playmobil stuff, try to find him (the pitchfork is the giveaway piece). I think I like the Lego Scarecrow better, even though he's not super spooky, but this guy is still fun. I question the yellow pitchfork (which doesn't live up to a neon scythe), but otherwise the guy looks pretty good.
Confirmed: Good and a 1/2
