Review: Takara-Tomy Beast Saga Aldyle Burst Action Figure
After a few gators in the Minimates range I didn't expect to have much interest in the regular version, let alone the clear Aldyle Burst which showed up at my house in January. Packed 3 to a case of 24 random blind clear figures, this figure is cast in both green and blue plastic with golden eyes as his only painted detail. Well, not counting his dice anyway.
As always this croc figure has 4 points of articulation and is made of a soft, rubbery plastic. The arms and legs rotate freely, and his fists are designed to hold 3mm weapons. This figure is interesting in that his weapons (and the entire series') do not match his fully-painted counterpart. Painted Aldyle came with the same weapons as Swordbill and Swordbill Burst. Clear Aldyle comes with the same weapons as Garrison G, Long Giraf, and Long Giraf Burst. I suspect this will cause mucho confusion down the road when people start dumping their collections on eBay, as it seems the only new shields and weapons are now coming in the multi-packs. (For those keeping track, Garrison G Burst comes with the painted Aldyle weapons. Swap-tastic!)
