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.

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:

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!

Zippered Mask & Leather Gloves: DCUC Bane

DC Universe Classics Wave 16 will be hitting pegs soon, and is already in a lot of collector’s hands.  Here’s my review of the Collect & Connect figure of Bane.  He’s like a giant criminally-inclined luchadore that managed to stomp a mudhole in Batman… once. Of course, that’s more times than most villains can claim, so I guess that counts for somethin’. Oh, and the figure is very, very nice.

Got Crabs… Crabmasks?: GLC Kyle Rayner

“Kiss the ring motherflippers!”

That Kyle Rayner, such a jive-talkin’ pimp!  Women line up to get tossed in his fridge, if you know what I’m talkin’ about!  Well, if you wanna know more about what I’m saying, then head on over to MTV Geek and check out my review of Kyle:

Permanent Plastic Prison: Gray Ghost

[ Mattel has finally done it!  Those genius bastards have created an action figure that I refuse to open! ] – Lemonjuice McGee

As you can see above, that’s a figure of the Gray Ghost!  He first appeared in Batman: The Animated Series, so the JLU style this figure is done up in definitely makes sense.  You’re probably saying to yourself, “McGee, you fuckin’ HATE toys that don’t move, so what’s the deal you goddamn sellout?!”.

Well, this figure has a little something special going for it.  Wanna know what it is? Well hit the friggin’ More tab to find out!

They’ll Steal Your Heart: GLC Black Lanterns

Okay, so I started my Green Lantern Classics reviews, FINALLY!  First up are the 2 Black Lanterns from Series 1, Black Hand and Abin Sur.  However, as pointed out on IAT, the design of the costume is actually that of his son Amon Sur. Confusing, and I feel like an idiot for not catching it, considering how huge a Green Lantern fan I am.  anyway, here’s the link to the review over on MTV Geek:
