I want to start off by saying I like these. A lot can be said and has
been said about Scibor in various forums on his press molding, but that
is a different discussion all together. I am looking at these figures
as someone who likes fantasy and monsters and greek mythology. Thanks to
Hollywood most people are familiar with the mythos that originated from
the bullheaded man-thing that lurked in the labyrinth that was built
for King Minos of Crete. Hence the name Minotaur. Minotaurs are simply
awesome in my book. As a fan of the mythological creature I am always
looking for nice representation of it in miniature form or as a figure
kit. And I dare say that this is it.
For those of you that are strictly miniature oriented, this piece is in 90mm scale. While that is easier to envision I prefer the 1/16 label as I see this as a figure kit rather than a mini. The difference is not really in pricing or complexity and details, but in purpose; this is just for display purposes. I suppose that if you really wanted a big and angry cyborg demon you could use this in your army, but looking at it in the context of it's companion pieces (which can be bought seperately) who are humans it just makes sense to view it as a collectors piece for the display cabinet.
