Ogre (2015 Lanard CORPS!)

The latest refresh of Lanard’s CORPS action figure line was a pleasant surprise. Introducing a new storyline depicting the conflict between the CORPS! and villainous group The Curse, the set has also given us newly sculpted figures and two female characters. As usual however, are a group of repainted older releases.

Ogre’s mold has been used several times in the modern CORPS! series. First appearing in the early 2000s as part of the BUCs sub-team, a bio nuclear containment squad. The figure’s suit has been a bit of a mystery to me, as it looks more suited for bomb disposal than a Hazmat. In addition, the scarred face seems appropriate for a villain character. Oddly enough, the body (with a new head) was reused as the Marauders leader Ravage. Maybe that’s why it’s been repainted again as a villain. And what a repaint it is. Say what you will about the cartoonish, clunky qualities of the modern CORPS! figures, I am impressed with the deco here. The paint apps made me instantly pick up a mold whose appeal to me was previously only found in its quirkiness. I’m not ashamed to say: the skull design, and the execution of its gradient pattern made me say “Cool!” out loud in the aisle, like a little kid. I know it’s more than a little Punisher-y, down to the teeth on the belt, but I don’t care. It just looks…well…cool!

  • I did the same thing, cool! I’ve been trying to complete my bucks and orcas collection for a while. This guy in his original blue being the last one I need. So I picked up two of these when I found them on the shelf and painted one blue with spray highlights. Looks ok.

  • I picked up one of those new 3 packs for fodder purposes. I was quite impressed with this guys detail.

  • Certainly more interesting than anything Hasbro’s produced in last decade.
