Review: NiStuff 481 Universe Outlander Silas Action Figure
For those not in the know, there's this guy Nicholas Merz that has, for years, customized and cast various figures under the handle "Ni" or "Ni Stuff." He's expanded his offerings into the 481 Universe, which includes numerous characters - although he hasn't had many go to production just yet, beyond his Anamolies PVC figures and some Glyos-compatible heads. Until now! The Outlander Silas is one of two releases this month of an entirely newly-tooled figure that, at first glance, seems like a hybrid of the Callgrim and Pheyden characters. When I saw the initial drawings, it took me a minute to realize that it wasn't a mashup of those two. The style of the figure and the original drawings very closely matches that of Onell Design's product, but when you see the fully-molded figure there's no mistaking it for anything other than an original creation that closely matches the style.
