Where you can get it: Here
While we’ve covered Movie Maniacs figures in some depth in the past where Ash himself clocked in at #4, I’ll be covering his evil counterpart in this review.
So not only am I fan of Catgirls and, quite frankly, breasts but I’m also very keen on all things Bruce Campbell as evidenced by my doggedly determined quest to pick up pretty much every well-scaled action figure ever done up of his unquestionably manly visage.
His only competitors in the accuracy department would be his case-mate Series 4 Freddy Krueger and Series 7 Robocop, both of which are superbly done and a testament to both the sculptor(s) and factory workers that produced them.
As I’ve mentioned before early to mid Millennium McFarlane Toys releases became highly focused on sculpt and details while neglecting the articulation. Instead of being able to put them in different balls-out awesome positions, McFarlane saw fit to slap them into static “iconic” poses and give them limited spot movement. Evil Ash here sports wrist, torso, shoulder, head, and ankle swivels leaving you just enough wiggle room to let him hold his sword accessories and balance correctly on your shelf.
His accessories aren’t as plentiful as Series 3 Ash or the 18 inch Behemoth that is Deluxe Ash but he gets buy with his two swords from the infamous duel at the end of Army of Darkness. Plus the cool-in-concept-but-not-in-execution “movie poster base”, that doesn’t really go with any of the figures (save for Pinhead) nor does it help support the figure in anyway.
