MOTUC Special: Talon Fighter And Point Dread!

MOTUC Special: Talon Fighter And Point Dread!

The 1980’s were an amazing time for children and toys; they offered a very new selection of creativity, and playthings that could stand the test of time, and the everyday wear that a child could put them through.

Masters of the Universe was probably more prominent than G.I. Joe and even the amazing Transformers. A MOTU figure could be nearly beaten on, immersed in water, and buried in the dirt and come out looking pretty.

With tough figures, a selection of vehicles for them to get around was also needed—granted, in time, the vehicles didn’t hold up too well due to …

MOTUC 2015 And 200X Special Subscription: November; Dragstor And Veena!

MOTUC 2015 And 200X Special Subscription: November; Dragstor And Veena!

We are finally winding down to the end of the MOTU Classics line. With next year offering just Filmation style figures and figures no one wants.  That is correct, they are not collector’s choice, they are Mattel’s choice.

Anyhow, there will be no 200X Sorceress anytime soon, no one demanded it—the message boards say different, but who cares what the fans REALLY want. All I can say is, I am happy that MOTUC is coming to an end—first you couldn’t get any of the figures, then there were too many of them. Goodbye Crappy Collector, and sleep tight!

The awesome figure …

Real Life Lessons That Can Be Learned by Watching …..  The Devil Wears Prada?

Real Life Lessons That Can Be Learned by Watching ….. The Devil Wears Prada?

filepicker%2FkFcRxXe7Rk6tZck28dET devil wears prada Real Life Lessons That Can Be Learned by Watching .....  The Devil Wears Prada?

I know, I know… It’s just a fluffy Anne Hathaway vehicle, right? Not quite… Well yes but it’s so much more than that. The movie itself was something of a success: $124 mil. Domestic gross… Not bad for a movie that came out in 2006 while the US was falling fast into the housing market crash, still neck deep in the war in Iraq, and no clear way out of the Bush era.

Long before Anne Hathaway played Catwoman, she was trying desperately to leave her Princess Diaries days behind her. This was also the first major American film role for …

MOTUC 2015: October- Perfuma, Skeletor, and He-Man!

MOTUC 2015: October- Perfuma, Skeletor, and He-Man!

It’s a jam-packed month for Masters of the Universe Classics as October finds a way to be terrifying yet smelling so sweet. Let’s get into it!

IMG 8196 MOTUC 2015: October  Perfuma, Skeletor, and He Man!

Up first is a two pack that I will not be opening. There are many reasons for that, mostly because I have a lot to say about Perfuma. Terror Claws Skeletor and Flying Fists He-Man come packed in the same two pack box set that other MOTUC releases have had before. Visually it is a very nice two pack.

Flying Fists He-Man is the weaker of the two for me. The armor and face sculpt …

MOTUC 2015: September- Saurod!

MOTUC 2015: September- Saurod!

While others are going back to school, come on back to Masters of the Universe Classics with a timely review on the importance of He-Man movie figures being a part of the toy line. Since the moment fans found out MOTUC would be an all encompassing toy line featuring a variety of MOTU figures, fans clamored for figures based off the He-Man movie that were once made in vintage form. I have been kind about those previous releases in the Classics line, so let’s find out what I have to say about the latest offering: Saurod!

001 MOTUC 2015: September  Saurod!

Released on the standard MOTUC …

MOTUC 200X Special Subscription: King Chooblah!

MOTUC 200X Special Subscription: King Chooblah!

In this, the third figure of the 200X subscription from Crappy Collector, we are given a big white fur ball with a moldy, defective, Slim Jim—OR—King Chooblah of the one episode of the 200X cartoon.

KC1 MOTUC 200X Special Subscription: King Chooblah!

The King comes packaged like all the rest.

KC2 MOTUC 200X Special Subscription: King Chooblah!

The back of the card has a bio that veered so far off from the cartoon that as usual, I just don’t care.

KC3 MOTUC 200X Special Subscription: King Chooblah!

The king has an amazing sculpt as with the previous 200X figures, and features some parts from Beast Man, Stratos and Zodac. A new head with great detail, new arms and large hands; and cool …

MOTUC 2015: August- Mara of Primus!

MOTUC 2015: August- Mara of Primus!

Are you ready to rock with the latest offering from Mattel’s Masters of the Universe Classics line? August sees the release of Mara of Primus the second female figure from the New Adventures of He-Man branch of MOTUC. Let’s take a look!

001 MOTUC 2015: August  Mara of Primus!

Mara comes in the standard bubble and card like the other MOTUC figures. I absent mindedly removed the bubble from the card before realizing that I needed to take a picture of everything new first. Pay no attention if anything looks unkempt.

007 MOTUC 2015: August  Mara of Primus!

Flipped around the card features an offering of other NA related figures in the MOTUC line. I …

MOTUC 2015 And 200X Special Subscription- Aug: Buzz Saw Hordak, Evil Seed and Heads of Eternia!

MOTUC 2015 And 200X Special Subscription- Aug: Buzz Saw Hordak, Evil Seed and Heads of Eternia!

Talk about a lot of items for the month of August—a lot of money too…

So, let’s cut to the chase and start with the quarterly variant that is Buzz Saw Hordak.

Aug 1 MOTUC 2015 And 200X Special Subscription  Aug: Buzz Saw Hordak, Evil Seed and Heads of Eternia!

My first impressions on this figure are actually good—amazing right? The usual bits are as follows…Hordak is packaged in the standard bubble—what is really cool is that his chest is open revealing the saw blade, and if I remember correctly, that is how the original 80’s figure was packaged.

Aug 2 MOTUC 2015 And 200X Special Subscription  Aug: Buzz Saw Hordak, Evil Seed and Heads of Eternia!

The back of the card features the usual crap.

Aug 3 MOTUC 2015 And 200X Special Subscription  Aug: Buzz Saw Hordak, Evil Seed and Heads of Eternia!

The bio is…just read it if you want. But, the original …
