Fisher-Price Imaginext DC Super Friends Slammers Arctic Sled with Mr. Freeze SetWhen I saw the early prototypes in the showrooms, I liked this Mr. Freeze Arctic Sled and the concept. $4 blind bag figures have proven popular, so a slightly more expensive figure with vehicle seemed like a fun idea! I'm not so sure I like the results. There are fun toys in here, but the little vehicle is not a good one for Imaginext figures. However, it's great for 3 3/4-inch action figures, so you old toy junkies might actually get more out of this than a kid.

Given a $4 blind bag figure is generally worth it, and this is $8, I'm on the fence as to if this is a good deal or not. On one hand, the vehicle seems worth $3 or $4. On the other, you can get much, much better non-blind bag vehicles in the toy stores with better form fit function for the figures for the same price - or less.

As I didn't get the previous 3-inch Mr. Freeze figures, I picked this up just to get one. For some reason it reminds me of Paul Schaffer meets Mike Mignola. I love the icy and jagged helmet replacing the usually smooth dome, and the icy arm is an interesting pick. The color reminds me of the later-eras of the 1990s Batman cartoons, and the articulation is pretty good. The ice arm is swivel-only, but you still get the universal movement on the left shoulder. The wrists swivel, the legs swing together as one, and the head can't move thanks to the helmet.

It looks cool, I like the sculpting, and it's sturdy. It works great with all your existing Imaginext stuff - well, since they standardized this style of figure, anyway - and I can't fault it. I like how the designs are getting a bit more imaginative, so this is a worthwhile figure.

I don't love the unboxing, and I don't love the sled. The "just slam it" gimmick requires you remove a tab, cut a zip tie-esque thing, and trim some clear cellophane that seems stuck on the box before you rip the easy-open tab and slam it down, popping the figure out of the top. It works, but it's overly complicated for something that is pitched as being so simple. Once opened, you get a small car and a plastic hang tab which was exposed before you open the box. You slide that hook in a slot in the front of the car, and that becomes the seat. You open the lid, and that's the back of the seat. The ski part isn't very sturdy and falls out easily. It's a snap to slide the Imaginext figure inside, but it's too roomy - the figure will flop around, and there's nowhere for the hands to grip or the legs to fit. It's just a big open box, like the old Kenner mini-rigs - which got me to think, could they fit in here? Yes, yes they can. I tried some Knights of the Slice, old Kenner Star Wars and other odds and ends - and they fit better. They don't flop around or seem jittery, and they better hold that tab piece in place. It's not a great Imaginext vehicle, but it might be the perfect sled for your 3 3/4-inch scale Glyos figures, old Kenner figures, old G.I. Joes... jut not Glyos. I've been struggling to come up with a good, cheap way to do a Mini-Rig for 3 3/4-inch figures, and it looks like Imaginext unintentionally beat me to the punch and did a darned good job with it, too.Oh they

Two of the three Arctic Sled vehicles are Mr. Freeze. I got this one, and if you are friends of mine named Seth there's also an all-clear variation you can pull. I'd peg the figure at being worth about $3 (no weapon or removable accessory) tops, with the vehicle being $4-ish due to the relative lack of decoration and low stability. The entire gimmick here is the unboxing, and the toy suffers just a tiny bit. I'm not saying you won't have fun with it, but with Freeze as the driver it feels unstable.

If you're an Imaginext fan that needs a new good Imaginext vehicle... don't get this. But if you're a toy fan that likes adding cool new Imaginext figures to your collection and also wants to outfit your 3 3/4-inch retro or indie figures with a good vehicle, this is absolutely worth the asking price.
