ThreeA Toys sent another tracking mail to me today for Action Portable Barguest and Fantome, the last de Plumes made in the version 1 style. All new de Plumes are being made in the 2.0 style, noticeable changes being a three-hose gas mask and new boots. These are the last ones to use the old Vietnam-era boots and single hose WW2-style gas masks.
Barguest and Fantome are part of the World War Robot universe, and I’ll be honest — they look fantastic. Character-wise and universe-wise, I haven’t a clue as to who they are or what their backstory is, but I love the look and they will more than likely fill some kind of role in my ThreeA universe as a “Spy vs Spy” type pair. Or not. But they will take a spot as someone or other. They will definitely square off against some Robots, Fighting JC, and some TKs.
Officially, I am Two figures from a complete set of 1/12 Action Portable de Plumes; I never picked up Nom and Noir — they are on my “to buy” list, and one day… one day they will be mine!
