Corgi The Golden Compass Action Figures

Mrs. Coulter with Golden MonkeyCorgi’s line of 3.75-inch action figures rate a "best buy" in my book. Each figure is carefully packaged in a blisterpack that is best opened by using a box cutter to open the base in the back, and then pulling the cardboard backing away from the plastic blister bubble. This will then expose the plastic wire ties used to affix the figures in the box; additionally, smaller pieces (guns, pistols, the alethiometer, et al.) are taped in.

The figures are articulated and can be posed. The detail work on these pieces is astonishing, as are the likenesses. Mrs. Coulter and Lord Asriel are particularly striking. I especially am chuffed to see two versions of Pantalaimon for the Lyra figure. And the Serafina Pekkala figure has an extraordinarily detailed fabric costume.

Lord Asriel with StelmariaI did not get the Iorek Byrnison (with removable battle armour) or the King Ragnar Sturlusson figurines, but if the other pieces are typical, you can expect a high level of quality. I can’t imagine anyone – child or adult – who wouldn’t be happy with a complete set of these figures. Affordable, meticulously painted, and articulated for full movement, these should find their ways under many Christmas trees this holiday season, to the surprise and delight of any Golden Compass movie-goer or reader who wants to own a piece of merchandising magic from the most enchanting movie I’ve seen in years.

Pieces include:
