There are eight different street-fighting, action figure heroes to collect across the first wave (and will eventually be 15 across the season), each with an animal head and a different type of gooey filling inside. Kids can squish, stretch, and flex the characters to play with them and parents don’t have to worry about any sort of mess because the goo stays inside the body.
The first wave of characters includes Blazagon, Pantaro, Sahario, Thrash, Tygor, Wolfpain, Rock Jaw, and Viper. I opened Thrash, who has a shark head, a blue body, and a thick, sparkly goo inside that requires a little bit of strength to stretch. I also received Tygor, who has a tiger head, an orange body, and a thinner, more watery goo inside with sparkly ribbons floating around.
All of the figures offer different ways for kids to play due to the variations of the slime inside. For example, the figures that contain thicker compounds have slow-rise action, so that kids can twist them into a spiral or pose them for a few seconds since it takes longer for them to bounce back to their original shape.
The figures with thinner compounds inside are more jiggly and are easier to stretch since the goo does not have as much resistance. The Heroes of Goo Jit Zu are all squishy and stretchy, but each in their own unique way. Each character looks and feels totally different, which makes it fun for kids to role-play and battle. Let the games begin!
