Figma Table Museum SP-066 Statue of David

Next up in the Table Museum series is the statue of David by Michelangelo. This one is just as much fun as The Thinker! Click through below to watch my video review over on the Kool Kollectibles YouTube channel!

The packaging and range of accessories is pretty much on par with The Thinker release. This time it does come with an extra action accessory. I'll talk more about that below, and why I'm such an idiot! 😂

Getting the figure into the classic pose is a bit of a struggle along the right leg. Getting it to fit into the foot peg as well as the groove at the back of the stand takes a bit of futzing around. Getting the torso and angle of the body to mimic as close to the actual statue itself is fairly difficult too.

I managed to get it into something that I was happy enough with, if not a perfect representation. Similar to The Thinker, you could leave it like this for that classic style in your collection. But for me, it's getting it into the action poses that make this series so much fun, just like a Night at the Museum right there on your desk!

Stupidly, I always thought that the original statue was holding a towel or some cloth in his hands. That is why the action accessory was something I thought the toy designer included as a funny idea. I thought it was a whipping towel accessory that he could swing to make fun of naked Roman public baths!! 😂

But of course the accessory is David's sling and rock that he uses to battle Goliath! Seems pretty obvious now that I think about it, but it is funny to think of it as a towel that he uses to whip other naked people in the public hot baths 😂

The swap out head sculpt has a moveable eye feature that I do not think works very well. The tool to move the eyes is fairly thin plastic, so you may end up deforming it slightly like I did. In the end, I just made the eyes look forward as best I could.

Either way, the figure looks great, with a good paint application, and has all the articulation you'd expect. Together with the other figures in this series, it's a nice bit of variety in my otherwise mainstream collection!
