Fortnite Victory Royale Series Meowscles (Shadow)

Here's a look at the Fortnite Victory Royale Series Meowscles (Shadow) from Hasbro.

(If the pics don't load, pls refresh. If it still doesn't load give it awhile... I don't know what's up with Blogger.)

I don't play Fortnite but I like the figures. Some are unique and cute, like Meowscles here. I also like the accessories they come with. Some of which we rarely see in other lines. I basically got this set for the exercise equipment... Meowscles is in his "shadow" skin. He's dark grey in colour and wears navy blue pants. Like his name suggests he's big and is very muscular. He needs to work on his legs though. They are smaller compared to his upper body. The marks, or maybe scars on his body was painted on. So too the stitching and hols on his belt. The paw design of the belt buckle was sculpted. The pants is textured and has some nice detail on it. You can make out the pockets. And there are claw marks on them. By his own making perhaps.  

Meowscles looks pretty menacing thanks to his "glowing" eyes and that scar running down his left eye. All of his features was painted on.  

Just to show the trophy tattoo on his left arm. Also the gold paw deco on the holster. Nice!

Some of the accessories come wrapped as you see below. They are loose in the box. If everything is packed in, it's fine. I just worry that something gets left out.   

Accessories. He comes with an extra set of fists, a ball of yarn shaped backpack, a rifle, two pistols, two long knives, a weight bench comprising of three parts, a barbell with weights attached and a dumbell. The white pistols may be stored in the holsters on his waist.  

There's nice detail on the backpack. It has two mouse grenades stored on it. They are not removable unfortunately.  

There are hooks on the grenades. I don't think they are supposed to be stored like that but I hung the knives on them. 

The knives fit his hands really well. There are spikes on the handle of the knives.

He is able to use the accessories from the Jazwares Meowscles. Those pistols are gun metal in colour and the knives are longer.

Here's how the weight bench looks like assembled. You can place the barbell on it. I like that the barbell is flexible and a little bent. It makes it more realistic considering the big weights attached on it. The towel on the bench was stuck on. You can forcibly remove it I suppose. Meowscles is able to grip the barbell securely. The dumbbell is loose in his hands.  

Here's how the barbell looks with figures from some other lines.

Articulation. Meowscles has a dumbbell joint neck, ball hinge shoulders, butterfly joints, bicep swivel, double jointed elbows, swivel and up and down hinge wrist right gripping hand, swivel hinge left wrist, ab crunch, ball joint waist, ball hips, thigh swivel, double jointed knees, calf swivel and ankle hinge and pivot. And there's swivel for the tail. He can hardly look up or down. The shoulder hinge is very stiff. The ab crunch allows one click forward and one click back. I can only get the waist to turn about forty-five degrees each side. The ankle hinge is ratcheted and there are only three positions which we can use it at. 

The fists have the usual swivel and hinge. 

Comparison shots. The Meowscles by Jazwares is bigger than Shadow Meowscles. 

Great figure! I like the look. He's got great articulation. The exercise equipment will come in handy for some training or fun shots. Thanks for viewing!

Great sculpt. Not sure I want to start collecting another Fortnite line, but this guy looks fantastic.
