I sort of love how Playmobil makes figures without licensed brands that look a lot like a real thing. For example, Rock Star looks like he is about to ask if you're experienced. This all-purpose late-1960s rock star comes with a not-quite-military jacket, a big hair piece, a bandanna, and a guitar. It's nifty.
As with other blind-bagged figures, assembly is required and it's simple. You know the drill.
The figure loads itself up with elements of what made a rock star roughly 50 years ago, as opposed to the popstars we had recently. There's nan open shirt revealing chest hair, a big gold medallion, even bigger hair, and a modest bandanna to keep the hair out of his face while he plays a guitar solo backwards. The figure has boots plus plenty of buttons, both hallmarks of music heroes everywhere.
When it comes to functionality, Playmobil is rarely anything but perfect. The figure has the same six points of articulation which work perfectly with the included guitar. The figure works well and looks great.
This may not be a figure to hold hands and watch the sunrise from the bottom of the sea, but it's definitely a lot more interesting to look at than most music-related figures. The wide lapels, the bright red coat, and the fancy boots go nicely with the pearlescent plastic guitar. If you can find a better not-quite-Hendrix Playmobil figure, you need to buy it. I like it, and I guess he also doesn't look all that far off from Playmobil's pirate costumes either. Just a thought, if you're more of a nautical fan.
