XINH 556: Firestorm Minifig Review

Part of this bigger set.
EDITED: Added pics with flaming headpieces!

Everything that came with him. No fire hairpiece sadly.

His arms have those weird yellow lines. Better than nothing? Easily replaceable anyway.

He has an alternate face which is good. 

Overall, this is a great minifig. The only thing I don't like about this is the lack of a fire hairpiece. Quality though in terms of mold and printing is very very very good. Way better than POGO's new DC and Marvel minifigs. Hoping XINH stays like this. 

EDIT: New pics!

This is Firestorm with SY Ghost Rider's flaming head piece. The newer one from this set.

 This is Firestorm with SY's older Ghost Rider's flaming head piece!

And this is Firestorm with XINH's take on SY's Ghost Rider. The flame is more reddish than you can see. Sorry about the camera. 

All in all, the fit of the head pieces into the figs are great! Hopefully the same can be said with Dargo's newer Ghost Riders (since they're easier to get than SY's).

    1. Yeah great idea! For me though it's hard to get Ghost Rider from local stores which is why I (and others for sure) am dissapointed that we don't get the fire hairpiece.. :/

    1. Oh I've seen that Dargo set. I'm not interested in that one though because I don't like the other minifigs or I already have them. I also already set up some trades and purchases from other local collectors for a Ghost Rider hehe

  4. Perhaps you could use the fire hairpiece (and fire effect pieces) for Human Torch from SY167 or SY288? I really enjoy your blog!
