Ok, I’ll admit that I’m cheating today by calling this a figure spotlight. Even the most creative use of the “figure” definition would be stretched to include this Buffy statue. Buffy is a lead miniature which was the first in a collectible series of figures and magazine originating from the UK. These types of magazine / statue series are fairly common with other series includes Star Wars ships, Star Trek ships and Marvel characters to scratch the surface. I picked up a Buffy and an Angel at last year’s Phoenix Comic-con.
Standing at just 3 1/2 inches, this is my second smallest Buffy in my collection. For a statue of this size, I’m quite pleased at the likeness. It is almost a definitive Buffy, being lifted right from the series 3 premiere episode ‘Anne’. The statue’s pose is well done, implying action without being in a contorted action pose. The paint ops, while fairly simple and limited, are sufficient. Being a solid piece of metal, there are no point of articulation at all. For what it is, a low cost small statue, I’m really satisfied with this Buffy and if you’re a fan, this series of figure / magazines are worth hunting down. And yes, the picture isn’t really doing it justice…the eyebrows aren’t quite as pronounced in person.
