Battle Armor He-Man was one of the very first reviews I ever did for this site. Looking at the two side by side, the cussing has fallen away (thanks to requirements for high-falutin’ network stuff) but my photography has definitely been upped. Anyway, I really dig this Skeletor figure who is one of the Quarterly Bonus Figures for Mattel‘s Masters of the Universe Classics line. Here’s the link to my review:
My neglect for this little blog is now paramount to abuse! Really, only 4 updates the entire month of February?! Cripes, I’ve been a lazy fuck! Well, lazy in the way that I’ve been up to my ears in toy posts for MTV Geek thanks to the spectacle that was The 2011 American International Toy Fair! Yep, I made the trek to New York City, interviewed and met a bunch of people, hung out at the MTV Geek offices, and avoided being robbed and/or molested.
Instead of making a post for each of the billion articles and video interviews, I’m just gonna put up a link list here to some of them. A new review or two will be popping up on here exclusively as well in the next week, so stay tuned! Hit the “More” tab for the link list pals-o-mine!
This figure was one of the few purchases I made while in New York City for Toy Fair. After seeing him up close at the NECA booth on Sunday, I had to have him! I reviewed him over at MTV Geek! since they were cool enough to fly me out for the show in the first place… plus they pay me, and a hobos gotta eat! Click the link for all the ramblings and some pics that I’m pretty partial to as well.
That’s right, TWO Ticks! Hell yes! My ramblings now serve a purpose by putting words into these toy’s mouths! You should hear how Mucus Tick picks up the ladies — it’s scandalous! Anyway, I reviewed these two figures after getting copies from the guys at Shocker Toys and Idle Hands during Toy Fair, and now I pass the savings onto you!… and by “savings”, I mean “words”.
Very cool figures, and the variety of the Indie Spotlight Series has me hooked!
Preternia He-Man is this year’s Matty Collector Subscription-Exclusive, and I just so happen to have one (nevermind how). I reviewed this time travelin’ warrior over on MTV Geek! and here’s the link to check it out:
Personally, I really, really like the figure. I’m not sure why… maybe because it’s an obscure version of the hero, but I think I might actually dig it more than the regular version! Of course, I could just be out of my head on model airplane glue. You be the judge!
Mattel has recently released the 2nd series of DC Universe Classics VS. Masters of the Universe Classics 2 packs to Toys R’ Us stores. While none of the characters are exactly favorites of mine, they do match up well when it comes to their water lovin’ or flying personas. I really like the Mer-Man variant, and the Aquaman is top notch. The peg-warming pack here will definitely be the Hawkman and Stratos pack although their both nice figures. There’s just something about Stratos that I hate…it’s gotta be that face… Anyway, check out my picture-heavy review at the link below:
I picked this guy up at my local comic shop (Little Monster Comics in Somerset, KY.) for a sweet 20 bucks. He’s HUGE, and while somewhat lacking in the articulation department, totally impresses in the ass-kicking department. Check out my review over on MTV Geek:
