Welcome to the first of my Halloween reviews for 2013! I'm not going to stress out about finding a new vampy lady every day like I attempted last year. But rather, I've been saving my creepier reviews all year for the month of October. She-Demon was always my favorite monster from Hercules. She's essentially a hybrid of Lamia and Medusa, but presented as a child of Echidna and Typhon. Unlike this toy, the TV version of She-Demon looked like a supermodel (played by Nicky Mealings), with a really bad CGI serpentine tail. I guess the CGI was actually pretty good for a mid-nineties television show, but looking back now it's kind of laughable. I also loved how this character was seductive instead of outright malicious. I always love characters like that. The toy leaves a lot to be desired, but it also it pretty fun. Anytime an expressive face finds its way onto a toy the results can be hairy. But the more I photographed She-Demon, the more I appreciated her. Let's check her out below!
She-Demon is articulated at the waist, shoulders, and neck. She also has a whip-action tail with an articulated rattle (mine doesn't seem to "whip" right)
She comes with an awesome accessory of a hollow stone upper torso so she can pull her Medusa gaze trick on almost any toy in your arsenal.
Here are some images of She-Demon from the show.
Time for some Comparison Pics!
Here she is with Xena and Atalanta.
