Mighty Max Grips the Hand
Doom Zone Playset Review
Let’s take a trip to the Graveyard with one of the only zombie-themed playsets released for Mighty Max,
Easily one of my favourite Doom Zone playsets; Mighty Max Grips the Hand (or Crushes the hand, depending on your region). We have this severed zombie hand with some great details and textures throughout. One of my favourite aspects are how they have these gaps and gashes which give you a glimpse of the inside, and integrate really well with the pieces inside the set.
Opening up the knuckles, we have a grave plot with a zombie breaking through (and a smaller grave space for burying the Mighty One). It really starts to form it’s own section with the stairs and textures between the green, the grave site and the tomb stone. Just a really cool little section, built into the knuckles here.
Opening up the rest of the set we can see the rest of the graveyard where Mighty Max is being surrounded by the undead; There’s graves, a mausoleum and a lot of sculpted zombies breaking out of the ground in a rainbow of colours. It breaks up the same green colours, but I’m not sure why they decided to make yellow and purple zombies.
So where’s the TV episode? That’s my biggest issue with the cartoon series, there just wasn’t many zombie themed episodes. They used some elements for an Egyptian styled episode called the Mommy’s Hand where, the Villain is the Egyptian god, Isis, trying to bring Osiris back to life through a curse that involves a ring. Max’s mother gets the ring, and it turns out, she’s the worthy one, so instead of losing her hand, she summons Osiris.
