(Much of this review will be similar to the Series 1 figure,
so I will be copying a lot from that review.)
Comments: The molding on the 1.5 inch Lillymon
figure is quite nice, it is very accurate and proportional when compared with the TV show.
The figure is molded in a hang ten pose with the arms stretched out to
the sides and the legs far apart in a sort of hunching stance. There is a leaf
connector between the feet to help stand the figure and to help hold it to the
skateboard with the finger bindings. Furthermore, the figure was molded in a
translucent green glow-in-the-dark material. The figure cannot really be seen well
in the day-time and you must wait till night-time to observe the details of it.
Also, the finger board is quite nice. The top of the finger board is covered with a
rough black material with a white Digimon logo emblazened on it. The bottom of it
features a picture of Lillymons, Togemons, and Palmons card game art and
Lillymons Digimon number (# 78). The finger board has translucent yellow
wheels on it and will roll a few feet if given enough force.
finger board is quite large in comparison to Lillymon, but I imagine this is for stability
purposes. Without the finger bindings, Lillymon will remain on the finger board if
you push it along gently. With the addition of the finger bindings, Lillymon can be
securely attached to the finger board, allowing more leadway when playing with the figure.
The bindings themselves are made of a flexible glow-in-the-dark plastic. It
can take a moment to hook them to Lillymon and to the skateboard. Additionally, this
package includes a display stand that the skateboard can lean on. The stand is
quite sturdy and displays the board quite well.
Finally, there is a small metal ring attached to the back of Lillymons head that
you can use to hook to the included key-chain. The figure will remain on the
keychain quite well, even while spinning it around your finger. For the price of
$5, this package is an OK deal. You get a fairly nice finger board with
a display stand and an accurate figure representation of Lillymon. I, however,
personally dislike the new board art and the glow-in-the dark material, and prefer the
first series package over this one.
Recommendations: If you see both series boards in a store, I would
recommend buying the first series one over this one, due to the better quality and age of
the first. Still, this package is a good deal at $5 and it does make a great toy,
even in spite of of limitations imposed by the glow-in-the-dark material.
