DCUC Robin: Feet? Who Needs Em?!

Tragedy strikes!  Yep, I had some serious QC issues with Robin.  Unlike King Hssss, these kinds of quality issues are NOT acceptable and came at the price of the Boy Wonder’s life!  Not only did he lose his feet like an elderly diabetic cake-lover, but his head too came off in quick fashion.  However, the figure is pretty friggin’ great as my love of the original Super Powers toy is through the roof, so I bought another one… and still reviewed him favorably.  Honestly, there’s just no denying how much I like this figure.  Not a sellout, just a sucker for scaled panties and elf shoes!

MOTUC King Hssss: A New Definition of Trouser Snake

Yeah, yeah… I know King Hssss hassss got backwards shoulders!  However, I didn’t notice when doing my review… and neither did a lot of other bloggers.  Sure, shitty quality control issss an aggravation and a problem; but like Roboto, I couldn’t give two shitssss in this case.  Hssss issss not my most beloved MOTUC figure, but he hassss a nice feature with the extra upper body.  I’m much more peeved about the ease at which hissss human torso decides to pop free from hissss waist than I am over hissss shoulder armor.

Shocker Toys’ Motherf**kin’ Maxx!

While this figure has been out for a while, I just scored one recently at the 2011 Toy Fair from Shocker Toys themselves.  It was the display model, so I’m missing a few accessories; but, the inherent coolness of The Maxx still shines through.  Check out the review, and while you’re there, feel free to watch the complete The Maxx Animated Series on the site… for FREE!

Scars N’ Spurs: DCUC Jonah Hex

Damn, I love Jonah Hex!  Not in a ” I wanna slip into him nice and slow as he sleeps” kinda way, but more of a “That is one badass killer and I admire the characters toughness” kinda way.  He’s my favorite figure out of DC Universe Classics Wave 16, and I highly suggest you man up and go buy him… since nothing says you’re a big, burly man like purchasing action figures!  Head over to MTV Geek! to check out the review:

Bow Down to Bow!: MOTUC’s Bow Review

Check out that sweet porn-stache!  Mustache rides for everybody!  Yes, here’s my review for Bow from Mattel‘s Masters of the Universe Classics figures.  I wrote this up right before Toy Fair, but due to the massive tsunami of TF news plus even more reviews, this guy fell into the shuffle.  However, now he’s “out” in all his glory!

B.A. Skeletor: Battle Armored & Bad Ass-er

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:

Escape with Alcatraz: NECA Toys’ Crysis 2 Nanosuit

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.

Right vs. Not-So-Right: Shocker Toys’ Tick Action Figures

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!

The Tallest Jawa of Them All!: MOTUC Preternia He-Man

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:

MTV Geek! Preternia He-Man Review

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!

Feathers N’ Fins: DCUC vs. MOTUC Series 2

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:
