Normally we all know what a MOTU figure’s articulation is going to be like, but unfortunately Randor is a bit different. He still has some of the basics. His head is ball jointed. The abs, elbows, and knees, and ankles are hinged. His wrists and waist are swivel cuts, while his shoulders are swivel hinges. I’m pretty sure his hips are also the normal swivel hinges, but his skirt prevents them from moving much. Randor’s new poofy sleeves also have no bicep joint, and his shins have no swivel. On their own it might not be a big deal, but together it feels like the figure is very limited.
Randor technically comes with three accessories. First is a yellow-gold coloring of the same spear that came with original Classics Randor. Nothing too new, but it does look more realistic.
Randor’s second accessory is his necklace. This is an OK piece, but I really wish it had been done entirely in plastic instead of having that little rope. Mine’s always getting twisted and jammed in his head joint when I pose the figure. That little bauble on front is also always turning around too.
Lastly is my favorite accessory, his goblet of wine. This cup was chromed with gold and has a nice design patterned around the outside. What makes it awesome is the bit of dark colored liquid sculpted inside. This is a great accessory for any of the figures, but now my Randor can stop worrying about his son as he sips his troubles away.
Although Eternos Palace Randor definitely has some issues with his articulation, I still love this figure. I’ve been waiting decades for an accurate portrayal of this character, and this one works perfectly on the shelf with the other members of the royal family. Now we just need a Battle Armor Marlena to keep the other Randor company.
