John Wick MAFEX Action Figure: Thanks to Medicom, He’s BackMay 27, 2019
Medicom’s John Wick MAFEX Action Figure is an impressive depiction of the indomitable “gun-fu” assassin as he appeared in the franchise’s debut film. The figure is a great addition to the company’s ever-expanding line-up of pop culture collectibles and worth a seat at the high table of any John Wick fan.
Like other pieces in Medicom’s MAFEX lineup, which include characters from the Marvel, DC, and Star Wars cinematic universes (like Spider-Man, Shazam, and Darth Vader) the company’s John Wick figure delivers a host of features designed to appeal to judicious collectors. The plastic figure stands approximately 6.25 inches tall and is impressively sculpted and painted to portray the black-clad professional with striking fidelity. Further, the figure boasts a pair of interchangeable heads (one battle-damaged and one unscathed), which portray the seemingly ageless action star, Keanu Reeves, with uncanny accuracy.
Medicom’s MAFEX action figures are known for being profusely articulated and their John Wick (No. 70) is no exception. The figure features over 30 points of articulation throughout the neck, torso, arms, and legs. As a result, toy enthusiasts will have a vast assortment of dynamic display options at theit disposal. The only downside of such extensive poseability is that figure’s numerous joints really stand out. As a result, a bit of the figure’s otherwise lifelike presentation is compromised.
Medicom’s John Wick MAFEX Action Figure comes with a satisfying complement of accessories. In addition to the two swappable heads, the figure comes with seven hands (3 left and 4 right) cast in a variety of positions (open palms, grasping, and clenched fists). Mr. Wick also comes with two pistols, a shotgun, and an assault rifle. The latter two weapons come with fabric tethers so they can be slung on the figure’s body. Finally, the figure comes with a translucent 3-piece figure stand to facilitate displaying Mr. Wick in a variety of action poses.
Medicom’s John Wick MAFEX Action Figure released earlier in 2019 at the manufacturer’s suggested retail price of approximately $70 USD. However, fans outside of Japan looking to snag the figure can expect to pay around $100 USD.
