Diablo the Satanic Chicken
Review by JoshB
I was out with the wife and friends the other night for our anniversary dinner (8 years, thank you very much) and we decided to kill some time in Newbury comics when I spied this little gem.
Diablo the Satanic Chicken.
Think about that for a minute. Let it sink in. Diablo... Satanic... chicken. It is as if this toy was made specifically for me.
When I bought this, I thought it was just a toy. Come to find out it comes from a webcomic. We won't hold it against it.
Right off the bat - Diablo is a Satanic Chicken.
He comes with a bunch of "evil" accessories, including:
A copy of the Necronomicon (1nd Edition)
A Human Skull
Satanic Whoopie cushion
Three pieces of oversized novelty bacon
Now, all of these props could have greater meaning in the context of the web comic, but I'd rather not know. I like the absurdity of the thing, and its affinity for the dark arts.
Diablo himself is 3" tall and suprisingly articulated. The head, wings, and torso all move.
Nowhere is this listed on the packaging, but you can remove Diablo's head, and there is a bloody ring around the neck.
Also not listed is the ability to place the human skull on the chicken body to create and evil undead human-chicken hybrid.
The Necronomicon does not open, nor can Diablo hold it, which is a shame.
I'm pretty sure the novelty bacon is just added in to cash in on the bacon craze, but hey, I love bacon, so I am not complaining.
This toy is just so screwed up it is wonderful. I love it, Satan loves it, and you will love it.
The Satanic Chicken commands it.
