Great resemblance of Stephen Chow as Monkey King in the Hong Kong film "A Chinese Odyssey Part 2: Cinderella". The overall paint application of the figure is good.
Monkey King definitely looks cool with his golden circlet from Goddess of Mercy.
The body armor is made of plastic but its texture, paint work and sculpting are what make it looks so real.
The outfit is beautifully replicated and screen accurate. It does not restrict the overall articulation of the figure.
However, the unusual part of the outfit is the rear of the shoes. I don't understand the reason behind it.
Each hair possesses magic power which can be transformed into a clone of the Monkey King himself.
Monkey King's golden-banded staff is made of metal. As the staff is heavy, it restricts certain nice poses we can get from the figure.
Tried my best to pose Monkey King wielding his golden-banded staff and the outcome was great.
More dynamic poses can be achieved if Inflames can give us an extra plastic staff.
Take a closer look at the head sculpt with angry expression. It's nice, right?
As the figure has fairly tight joints, it can stand without using a display base.
Chinese characters were engraved on the Pandora's Box. Unfortunately, the box cannot be opened. You may click here to see the packaging.

As mentioned in my previous post, the head sculpt possesses great likeness of Vin Diesel.
Riddick's main weapon is a pair of Ulak blades which he had used in the 2004 film.
Riddick has a scabbard which holds the Irgun knife securely in place.
The overall paint work and sculpting of the figure are good especially the realistic skin tone and texture of the face sculpture. But, skin color between the head and neck is different.
Looking at the backpack, it's surely used to store drinking water.
The Ulak blades are made of metal and they have sharp points which can poke through fabric.
Due to the design of the upper body, you can only rotate its head to left or right, and bend its arms to almost 90 degrees.
Riddick's waist joint provides a good range of motion. His lower body articulation is reasonable.
I love the unique design of the blade as above. It's also made of metal which has a sharp point.
Unfortunately, the Irgun knife is made of plastic. You may break the blade of this weapon if you are not careful.
The pair of goggles is not stretchable as they are made of hard plastic. They do not fit to the head.
