Zabra Hexx World of Warcraft Action Figure Review

Zabra
Today we will review a figure that was taken direct from the World of Warcraft Comic Book Ashbringer. The Troll Priest Zabra Hexx used to stay at the scarlet monastery before he was forced out by the by the Scarlet Crusade. Zabra's staff is a rare staff in World of Warcraft called "Zabra's Misplaced Staff" so I guess he's currently using something else in the game. This figure stands at 7.5" at it's highest point and features great colors and is a great introduction of the troll race into the World of Warcraft Figures. So jump on to the break and don't forget to click on the images for a closer look.



The package seems to be a bit large than usual due to his pose. The outstretched hand made the package a little bit thicker. The inlay and mini comic book are the same with all series two figures.

The package contains four pieces total. The main figure the left shoulder armor and two pieces of his staff.

Here's the turn by turn without all the accessories. If he didn't have that big hole on his left shoulder he could've looked like a complete figure by itself. I really like the pose of the figure but i think the angle of his head is a little bit low. It's as if he's about to attack a dwarf or a gnome it's kind of hard to get a good look at his face but it still looks great though.

The accessories on this figure looks great and I'm really loving the colors on this figure. I really hope the guy that colored this figure got a chance to color a lot. Here we have his left shoulder guard that features great sculpts and details on the markings. The staff has two pieces so that in can be inserted onto the left hand the build and look of the sculpt is very... can I say... trollish. There are great markings all over the staff down to the ends.

Here's the turn by turn with all the accessories. I'm really not a big fan of the troll race but Zabra makes me wanna think twice. This figure has great design and sculpt all over and I can say that it's the best work on the colors so far. The colors aren't perfect but that's just what makes it authentic troll. It all blends great together.

Here's a close up shot of the face. As I said he's kind of looking down so you might want to be a little bit lower if you want to get a good look at his face. One of the distinguishing features of the trolls is their tusks and Zabra's got a great pair. His hair has great colors with a little bit of black highlights up to the back. The triple ear rings are signature troll but I'm really not sure what that white stub is. It's either a small tooth or a big stubble. Either way it looks okay.

The shoulder guards have great detail and the colors blend greatly to the troll theme of the figure. The green and gold looks really great though the colors aren't as clean as the other figures, but I guess that's how trolls color their stuff and that's why I like it.

Obviously trolls only have three fingers on their hands and Zabra's do not disappoint. The sleeves look great with the crumpled look which is lined with markings and gold. There's even a small plate on the back of his hand which looks great and solidly colored down to the gold lining. I like how the three fingers are presented on this figure and I'm looking forward to other trolls DC Unltd.'s going to bring out.

The light armor on his torso is designed with gold and green and I'm glad that the colors aren't sloppy in anyway and is solid where it should be up to the back.

The waist is my favorite part on this figure particularly due to the shrunken heads. It's either these are gnome heads or Zabra is just great at head shrinking.Those potion bottles are colored bright and solid like they're supposed to be. The sides are designed with demon like figures that remind me of the gremlins. Again colors are great and don't spill out to the other parts. The skirt has great markings all over and is lined with gold which I really like because it's really solid and doesn't smudge the other parts like the other figures we've reviewed in the past.

Trolls only have a pair of toes on their feet and Zabra's look great.

The best thing about these figures is that the artist and sculptors put in work on the stuff that is hidden on the figure. I know everybody looks even if they don't admit it. And yes Zabra's wearing underwear, green ones to be exact.

Zabra Hexx is a great introduction to the Troll race into the Warcraft Figure Line and if the colors continue to be as great as this figure we'd have a lot of great stuff to look forward to.

Guys,
I am afraid I bought a bootleg fake Zabra Hexx figure from China on eBay!
The paint does not look good and the gold color is almost dead.
There are also no writing on his feet below with the © DC Unlimited bla bla bla! Doesn't your figure also have these stamped writing below his feet?

@Dammage7 - that's too bad... although Zabra doesn't have any DC Unltd markings on his foot... =)
