Throughout the past year we have received several different types of Gorgons with many different paint decos, so it seems only appropriate that the last release of Greek Mythology figures contains a pair of new Gorgons, and a pair of really striking new Gorgons at that.

The Anakritis Gorgon is based on the pattern of a neon Garter snake with some excellent, vibrant colors and an intriguing pattern across the surface of the snake’s skin.  Without the armor, this very cool pattern continues along the flesh of the creature underneath and creates a very cool aesthetic.

Released with the “screaming” Gorgon head, the Anakritis is developed as an interrogator of sorts, a sinister member of the Gorgon Horde, colored in an excellent shade of blue and red.  I love the way the two colors compliment each other on the skin, both exposed and hidden behind the armor.  Certainly, the Boss Fight folks have limited tooling to currently work from, so repaints are prevalent, but the difference between how Boss Fight handles repaints and other, more mainstream companies do, is that Boss Fight really digs into the reason and purpose behind the repaints and puts together some terrific deco choices, so even repaints feel fresh, appealing, and new.

One word of caution – if you’re tempted to remove the gauntlets from the Anakritis’ arms, use a hair dryer or heat gun and be very careful.  Mine were able to be removed fairly easily, but they did cause some paint wear on the forearms underneath.  Nothing drastic, but something to watch for.

I’m glad Boss Fight went in a different direction than the typical sheath, sword, helmet, shield for their accessory compliment, however these particular Snake Blades did end up a little warped out of the package.  Far from a deal breaker, and these weapons seem to be the only ones that suffer from that occasional malady, but I did want to mention it.  I really love the vibrant metallic color shade of the blades and the shield, which contrast nicely with the flat almost stone texture of the armor and Gorgon skull helmet.

I’m on board for whatever Gorgons that Boss Fight Studio decides to produce, and the Anakritis is no exception.  I love the way the bright colors work off of each other, I like the back story, and the accessories are decent as well.  This figure builds upon the existing base of Gorgons well, but also stands apart on its own quite nicely.

Summary

Exciting, vibrant colors, the awesome screaming Gorgon head and an interesting new backstory, the Anakritis Gorgon is a great addition to the ever-growing Gorgon Horde. I did have some minor issues with the forearm paint and weapon warping, but those issues are minor in the grand scheme of things and the figure ends up as an excellent addition to the Vitruvian HACKS line.
