They're a Mega Bloks product, but they're not a building-brick concept, instead they're 4.5-inch "Mag Warriors", kick-*** knight figures whose necks, shoulders, and hips are held together using a magnet system. And not only are they fantasy knights with magnetic joints, but each one also has light-up eyes. They were $6 each at Target, they only had Battle Scorch and Hawkblade but they're the ones that look the best anyway I think. I hope folks don't overlook them because they're on the building brick aisle with other Mega Bloks figures, each Mag Warrior does have a building stud here and there, but they're definitely action figures and not building brick guys.
Each figure comes in a clear carry-case box with a chrome lid, surprisingly attractive design. The tray shows off the figures pretty well, you can see the nice sculpting and the accessories and whatnot with ease - the figs each have removable magnetic shoulderpads, a big weapon, and a big shield. The figure is well articulated because the magnetic stumps stick out enough to allow the mangetic limbs a lot of range of motion, the magnetic limbs have rubber grommets which keep them from flopping about (the neck and shoulderpads don't have the rubber but they hold ok and other pieces keep them in check); also, the elbows and knees are standard hinges and the wrists and ankles are standarded limited-range ball joints. The bottoms of the feet are magnetic so the figs can use their included metal collector cards as stands. Oh, and as if that weren't cool enough, when you press the tops of the heads the figures' "eyes" light up inside the helmets with red LEDs, it looks cool but is really more of a bonus feature to fantastic figures than a main reason to buy these.

Anyway, check 'em out, they're very satisfying and cool figures. I'll have an expanded review of 'em up on figures.com as soon as Jeff finishes the editing.
