Review by chachipower
I'm so glad to be doing this review because I was right about these figures getting better and better with each release. The only problem is my favorite characters have all been done already and they could have been better. While I wait for a remake or updated reissues, I will be enjoying whatever new Ultra Acts make their way into my collection. I am really liking this line of figures, whether I am a fan of the characters or not. I had low expectations for Zamsher, but I was actually quite impressed with this figure.
Zamsher comes in your standard Ultra Act box with an offset window. Once you wrestle it out of the clear tray, you get this. A finely sculpted version of Zamsher. It's hard to believe this is from the same line that made the first Ultra Act Ultraman, which looked and felt cheap. This one feels nice and solid.
The set comes with a sword and sheath that can be attached with a peg to his back.
Did I mention he has a good sculpt? It has great detail on the face. I really like how menacing he looks. His red hair piece is the alternate piece. He comes with a less aggressive (in other words, not as cool) hair piece, but for the purpose of this review, I chose not to use it.
I find it hard to believe that I originally thought I would not like this figure but I am really digging it right now. It just looks cool from all angles.
So how does he pose? Just fine. Like all his predecessors in the Ultra Act line, he features great articulation. It is a tad limited in the shoulders due to some armor hinges, but nothing to cry about. However it almost seems like those hinges could swing up out of the way, but they don't on mine. So they are either seized or as-is. The illustrations on the box show a more aggressive posing in the shoulders. Here he is with his nice thin bladed sword unsheathed and ready to slice some opponents.
Can you tell I am having fun posing this figure?
You can even get silly with poses if you'd like. I decided to see if he could do one handed push-ups. He can.
I got a bit too silly with the posing I think.
This figure gets a thumb up from me. It was solid out of the box with no flop and at the end of the day it was still solid except for the neck which got flop syndrome. The paint apps are well done and the figure looks great. I give the price a thumbs down. As with all Ultra Act figures, they are priced a little more than what you would think they should cost.
