Hasbro has taken an obscure character that appeared in a movie largely panned by fans and critics and given us a fairly solid figure with this new Target exclusive 6" Black Series Moloch figure.
Moloch was a character that had maybe 5 minutes of screen time in this years Solo: A Star Wars story and while I can't say this was a figure I was dying for, once in hand I have to admit it is a pretty cool figure.
The packaging is the same as any other Black Series figure. The black window-box with red highlights featuring a bio on the back in multiple languages.
For accessories you get a staff, pistol that fits in a working holster and removable faceplate to protect him from sunlight when he goes outside. The staff has a little bit of white paint at the end but basically looks like brown plastic. The pistol has a unique design with a metallic paint for most of the weapon. The handle looks like brown plastic. The faceplate features a cream and metallic paint that matches up nicely with the rest of the figure. I like how the face plate fits in the mask and I like how the mask itself on the figure has some articulation where the jaw portion pulls down.
For the figure itself, I really like the sculpting and paint details on the headsculpt featured inside the helmet. I think Hasbro did a really nice job. The rest of the figure is draped in a robe like outfit which looks nicely detailed. You have an outer coat that is removable and while the sleeves of the coat are sculpted they match up pretty good with the outfit under the coat.
Articulation is pretty basic. You get single-hinged elbows they do swivel and a waist swivel, but the lower portion of the figure is one solid piece of plastic making more a base than actual legs. This does make the figure stable so its not following over and also gives the figure a pretty hefty weight. The head does not move at all but you can have him bend forward or back at the waist area.
The hands are gloved and the right hand is sculpted with a trigger finger for the blaster and the left one is a grip hand for the staff. You can put the staff and the pistol in either hand though.
The belt on the figure is a separate piece but not removable. The brown harness on the chest is sculpted and then their is rope type thing that goes across the chest as well which is a separate piece attached to the figure.
While the figure doesn't have a wide range of movement, I think Hasbro did a good job capturing the likeness of the character. It would be cool if Hasbro ended up doing Moloch's boss in 6" form but I don't really see that happening.
