Mosquitor’s is dark but still colorful. The majority of his body is molded black with red, maroon, and silver highlights. There’s also a bit of purple and gray thrown onto the groin piece. All around these colors work really well for the figure. The only parts of the paint job I don’t like are his eyes. They’re set so far back on his head that you can’t even see his pupils from straight on. They also have this weird inverted curve that makes him appear to be looking backwards. This is one instance where Mattel could have improved on the vintage design instead of blindly copying it.
Articulation is what you’d expect. He’s got a ball jointed head. Shoulders and hips are swivel hinges, as are his two insect arms. Biceps, wrists, waist, thighs, and calves have swivel joints. Chest, elbows, and knees are hinges, while the ankles are hinges with a rocker joint.
Mosquitor only comes with one accessory, his little blaster. It’s a cool looking little stinger gun that’s colored the same shades of purple as his belt. I kind of wish they made that little stinger in his nose removable also, like he could shoot it at people. Other than that, I’d say he’s pretty well armed.
I am a little leery about the amount of soft plastic they used on him though. His hands are particularly worrying. I probably won’t be moving them much because I can see them tearing over time. Matty really needs to stop using soft plastics for body parts. Other than that, Mosquitor is a fun looking figure and another welcome addition to the Horde troops.
