The toy collector part of me has wanted to pick up some of the various action figures I've seen from the new game, but so far I've resisted. However when I saw that Mega Construx had released a small Claptrap how could I resist?
Mega Construx aka MegaBloks, has a history of obtaining licenses for various pop culture franchises. Probably best known for their HALO sets, they have released the first of many (I hope) Borderlands figures.
I found this Claptrap at a Walmart while I was traveling for work. The $4.99 price tag was a little steep for my liking, but I caved as I love this annoying little robot. Claptrap comes on a small blister card where you can clearly see the figure and it's accessories.
A lot of these new single blister carded Mega Construx figures don't require much building. In Claptrap's case all I had to do was pop on the flaps that go on just the arms, afix the computer pad in his hand and then attach Claptrap to a clear rod on the display stand.
I love the weathered look on the body. The paint apps are spot on and look fantastic. The arms are attached to the body using a ball joint so they move freely and have a good range of motion. His wheel is made of a rubber like material and rolls smoothly across a flat surface.
This is a fun little toy and makes a nice little shelf decoration down in my game room. I don't know if there will be more Borderlands 3 figures released, but if not this is a great little piece.
