A long time coming, Capcom has worked with Toycom to deliver
a limited line of figures based on the first Devil
May Cry game. Toycom has made a name for itself by delivering
a few small anime based series
(Man Machine Interface, Silent Mobius) and the
King of the Hill series and now delivers
a limited but familiar series.
First and foremost, the series obviously comes with Dante,
the star of the game, who comes with his handguns and sword.
Along with Dante is Trish, equipped with two handguns, and
various colored Marionette demons. It's obvious from the limited
selection that this series was intended just to test the waters.
It would have been nice to see Nelo Angelo, the Phantom or
a Sin Scythe in the series. Maybe if this series does well
enough, we'll see them and even a few characters from the
When it comes to the figures, both Dante and Trish look well
detailed and stylized, but with a more anime influence to
their sculpturing. While not as realistically sculpted as
most of McFarlane's lines, the figures do look good. Too bad
neither have too many points of articulation. So, if you plan
on taking them out of the packaging, don't expect to do much
with them outside of their stylish poses. Dante has his guns-a-blazing
action pose while Trish mimics the female silhouette logo.
All of the figures come with weapons, including various hands
for the Marionettes, who are a nice addition to the series
but still don't prove to be anything completely spectacular.
Their colorful paint jobs are a nice contrast to the limited
palettes of Trish and Dante.
Fans of the original game will surely snap up the Dante figure
and maybe even the stylish Trish. Collectors will likely grab
the Marionettes for a full set. Maybe if Toycom delivers another
series in this line to fill out the more interesting enemies
and even Lucia would this line really get some attention.
