Incredibles 2 Dash & Jack-Jack two-pack Review !!!

First off Happy Veterans Day to all of the Veterans out there and God Bless !!! Although I've never done a Veteran's Day tribute on this site there is one military style action figure tribute for another military holiday, which is Memorial Day . The following is a look back at the only Memorial Day tribute on the site, back in 2014 - .
Now on to the Incredibles 2 two-pack of Dash and Jack-Jack . I purchased these figures at a local Walmart for under ten dollars at $7.97 . As you can see Jakks Pacific is the maker of these figures.

 As you can see you can purchase the entire Incredibles family along with Frozone in this series . If you're having difficulty seeing the words in the bios here goes.
For Dash - Dash Parr, an irrepressible 10-year old, has super speed to match his boundless energy. Competitive and adventurous, Dash longs to be able to use his powers to fight bad guys like his parents .
For Jack-Jack - Like most toddlers, Jack-Jack Parr enjoys making messes at mealtime, getting into things he shouldn't , and chiming in on family conversations with his enthusiastic babble. Unlike most toddlers and unbeknownst to his family, he's actually a polymorph with multiple hidden super abilities .
 As for the two figures they are fun to have . Perfect likeness to the Incredible films . As for articulation, Dash has more than Jack-Jack . Dash can move his arms up and down, legs up and down and his head can turn all around . Jack-Jack only has articulation in his arms and head. His arms move up and down and his head all around . If you want to display Dash in a running pose it will be difficult because he has no knee articulation .
 As you can see these figures are very small . Not because they are children but because they are small action figures in general . As you can see Dash is right at two inches tall and Jack-Jack is right at one inch .
Now for a comparison . The Mr. Incredible figure you see in the above pic is NOT the same Mr. Incredible from this particular series  or from the back of this packaging . This in fact is the same Mr. Incredible figure I reviewed on this site back in 2015. Plus the company is not Jakks Pacific, but a company named Thinkway Toys . Here's a link to the above Mr. Incredible figure Review in case you missed it - . As for the comparisons, since Dash is supposed to be ten years old according to the bio on the back of the packaging , he may be a little too small standing next to this version of Mr. Incredible, then again since he is a child maybe not . However Jack-Jack is perfect next to this version of Mr. Incredible since he is a baby .
                                                     FINAL   THOUGHTS  

( 1 )  ARTICULATION  LIMITS - For Dash no outward movement in arms and legs, no knee or elbow articulation and no up and down head movement . For Jack-Jack the same that applies to Dash but without leg movement at all .

( 2 ) STANDING  ABILITY -  Standing without falling is challenging for Dash because his literally big head makes him top heavy and tumble over . You must position him just right for that proper stance . Jack-Jack despite having no leg articulation stands well and stands better than Dash .

( 3 ) WHAT  I  LIKE  BEST  ABOUT  THESE  FIGURES  - First off I love the Incredibles franchise and I love these figures . They are a perfect likeness to the film adaptions and are fun figures to add to the collection .

( 4 ) WHAT  I  LIKE  LEAST  ABOUT  THESE  FIGURES - There's nothing disliked .

( 5 ) WHAT  COULD  HAVE  BEEN  DONE  TO  IMPROVE  THE  FIGURES ? -  Make it easier for Dash to stand, no improvements needed for Jack-Jack despite his limited articulation .

( 6 ) GRADING  SCALE  -  For Dash I give him a 9.8 because it is difficult to get him to stand without falling . Jack-Jack gets a Perfect Ten !!! Dash would have gotten a perfect score if not for the standing issue .

( 7 ) FINAL  ANALYSIS - Despite their limited articulation and small stature , Dash and Jack-Jack are some neat little action figures .
