Jacob Mego

The enigmatic Jacob is the final wave 1 Bif Bang Pow! figure I'll be looking at. The figure is dressed in an outfit similar to his brother but this time with a white shirt, light grey pants, no belt, and no sandals.

As with his brother, the likeness can be a little tenuous. The angle below is about as good as it gets.

One feature of the entire line that has improved from Trek Mego days is the hair on the male characters. The highlights and the highly-customized hairstyles are very well done.

The sculpt also nicely conveys Jacob's zen-like spiritual vibe, so different from MIB's intense, almost manic look.

In summary, this is a solid figure marred only by a lack of fidelity to the original. Grade: B+
