The Tick - CAPTAIN LIBERTY!

The Tick (Live Action Series) Action Figures - Captain Liberty - N2 Toys 2001

Happy Independence Day! I always try to find a patriotic figure to review on this day and this Captain Liberty is one I've been dying to get to for years. I never watched the live-action Tick television series (nor the animated one), but I've always thought this figure was gorgeous. I know fans of the show weren't too pleased with the actor likenesses in this series, but since I don't have any personal fanboy criteria to demand, I can honestly say that this sculpt is wonderful in its own right. I agree it looks nothing like actress Liz Vassey, but the statuesque patriotic figure looks great anyway (in my humble opinion). I like this sculpt so much that I've been googling for days trying to figure out who the artist was behind it. No luck on that front though. N2Toys is best known for their Matrix and Babylon5 action figures, but they had several other interesting product lines for the brief years they were in existence (1999-2001?) before reforming into Mirage Toys (Alias and South Park). Let's check out Captain Liberty out below!























The articulation in this figure is lacking and awkward. But I can say that about most collector figures in this era.














All these figures also come with a "Real Superhero License."




















Time for a Comparison Pic!




Cheers!
Happy 4th!

    1. I know I only discovered them a couple years ago. I think the whole line is cool, although I totally agree with all the sculpt and articulation concerns as well.
