ReCollect! Part I: Re-Mastering
the Universe (MOTU Classics)

When I moved into my new house at the beginning of this year, I had the seemingly great idea to chronicle moving my collection. I got one article up, about the move itself, and then my life got flipped turned upside down. I didn’t get out to Bel-Air,

Vault Review:
MOTU Classics Karatti


Before I delve further into my growing pile of imports I thought I’d get another piece of our most recent Matty box out of the way. So today’s review is for the evil Space Mutant Karatti from the New Adventures of He-Man cartoon.

Vault Review:
MOTU Classics King He-Man


While we wait for this month’s Matty box to arrive, I thought I’d go back and look at another Masters of the Universe Classics figure that we haven’t reviewed yet. So let’s take a look at King He-Man, our first real glimpse into

Spirit of Hordak Appears;
Spell of Separation engulfs Internet

After 20 straight hours in a car, I proceeded directly to work and apparently missed all sorts of hullaballo as Mattycollector unleashed their latest figure on an unsuspecting populace. Yes, it’s a random day in May and your MOTUC collection is one less figure from being complete!

Time to get another Masters of the Universe Classics figure out of the way and today I’m going with Snake Face. I only had a few Snake Men as a kid, and SF wasn’t one of them. But like so many other MOTU

Mattel Announces Stonedar &
Rokkon Two-Pack for SDCC 2013!

All this week, Mattel will be revealing their SDCC Exclusives for their collector brands. As you’d expect from the site’s content, I’m interested in the MOTU & DC Exclusives – luckily, Mattel revealed the MOTUC Exclusive first! This year’s SDCC Exclusive is a bit of a

MOTUClassics.Com He-Man Review
(Masters of the Universe Day)

Back in 1987, LA Mayor Tom Bradley decreed that April 28th as “Masters of the Universe” Day. Today, 26 years later some crazy toy bloggers are teaming up for a day of MOTU reviews. I want to do something special, so I figure it was time

Vault Review:
MOTU Classics Mosquitor


It’s easy to fall behind on Masters of the Universe Classics figures. There’s always a new one or two coming out, or just around the corner. So today I’m going back a few months to check out a figure we missed, the Horde

Vault Review:
MOTU Classics Strobo


I love crazy MOTU characters, and Strobo is definitely right up my alley. The guy inserted a mirror into his chest and is wearing an outfit that would make most superheroes blush. I can’t help thinking that he runs around Eternia, half naked

Vault Review: MOTU-

We’re pretty behind on just about everything, but it seems like the MOTU figures have been piling particularly high. So in an attempt to cut down on our backlog, I thought I’d follow up Noisy’s MOTU review with one of my own. So

Eternia Ram Man Review

He’s finally here! After years of waiting, gnashing of teeth, and seemingly endless internet complaints, Ram Man has finally arrived! Once it was made clear that Ram Man would be held off (as a 100% tool), his importance swelled far past what it should rightfully be. Does

Eternia Jitsu Review

Vault’s been pulling all the MOTUC duties so far this year, but Jitsu called out to me as I was looking across the pile of unreviewed toys today. He’s an interesting figure – in some ways I love him, in others not so much. Come to think

Vault Review:
MOTU Classics Granamyr


I feel that Granamyr is one of the more recognizable characters to spring forth from MOTU. Not everyone may know his name, but a large dragon with a pot belly and horned helmet tends to leave a lasting impression. (Heck, even my mom

Vault Review:
MOTU Classics’ Procrustus


When the MOTU Classics line first began to pick up steam, Noisy and I started going through the more obscure MOTU characters to see who might get made. We ran across Procrustus early on, but didn’t have high hopes that this four armed

Vault Review: MOTU 30th
Anniversary Limited Edition DVD


To add to the celebration of MOTU’s 30th anniversary there’s a new box set edition of He-Man’s various animated incarnations. I wasn’t sure if I wanted this new collection, but the extras were just too tempting. I gave it a try, and I’m

Dekker Review

Not many characters have lit a fire under MOTU fans by storm as Dekker has. His unforgettable appearance in the MO2K series’ episode, “The Island”, launched a thousand requests to see him as a figu- Did I have you going? Even for a second? Or are

Eternos Palace King Randor


We’re trying to wrap up our November Matty reviews before the end of the year. Today I’m going to take a look at a figure I really didn’t think we’d get, but I’m glad he did: Eternos Palace King Randor. He’s a figure

MOTU News: Granamyr Delayed,
Apology Figs, & a 3rd Party CGM Kit

There was plenty of MOTU news this last week and not much of it made it to the front page here at IAT. Granamyr’s packaging and bio were revealed (along with the news that he’ll be delayed), the “apology gift” for Frosta was sorta revealed, and

Grayskull Weapons Rack Review

As some of you may have heard, Castle Grayskull Week went a little askew after I found myself in the middle of a five-car pile-up on Wednesday. I’m doing just fine, but the site kinda trailed off last week. My bad. So Grayskull Week gets one

MOTU Classics.Com:
Rattlor Review

Admittedly, I’m not the biggest Snakemen fan. In fact, I can’t even recall having a single Snakeman as a kid. I picked up all the MO2K Snakemen, but they didn’t do much to convince me. I’ve been hoping that Classics could warm my opinion of these

MOTU Classics.Com: Temple of
Darkness Sorceress Review

With the Castle Grayskull pre-order scheduled to wrap up next Monday I’ve got MOTU on the brain. Coincidentally, we’ve also got plenty of MOTU Classics figs to review. That’s how theme weeks are born, fellas! It’s all MOTUC this week, starting with the Temple of Darkness

MOTU Classics.Com Power-Con
Keldor Sword Exclusive Review

This is going to be a quick review today. I usually aim for about a thousand words per review, but all I’m covering is a teeny, tiny sword. I don’t remember if I posted about it at the time, but shortly before Power-Con Mattel announced

Mekaneck Review

It’s been a few weeks since I’ve reviewed a MOTU Classics. All told, Sir Laser Lot should be the next up for review, but I’m not much in the mood for laser knights as I write this. I can’t escape the primary colors of red &

Vault Review: MOTU Classics
Dragon Blaster Skeletor


Masters of the Universe Classics usually does a fantastic job of updating vintage figures with a more modernized look. I was particularly excited to see what Dragon Blaster Skeletor’s would look like. Unfortunately I think my expectations were too high.

Spikor Review

When I was a wee tot, I sorta hated Spikor. I could bore you with why, but the specifics aren’t really important. Suffice to say, this wasn’t a Masters of the Universe Classics figure I was really looking forward to; and that was before he debuted as

Vault Review: Masters of the
Universe Classics Griffin


Seems like just a few days ago I was opening a gigantic box packed full of various MOTU and DC figures. But that was actually way back in June, and now that it’s almost August I thought I’d better catch up before that San Diego

Truetorial: Who would Pre-Order
the End of the Line?

As I’ve said, I hate the post-SDCC subscription period. It’s a study in frustration. First comes the uncertainty of if we’ll even hit the minimum. Then we transition into anger & fighting, bargaining & bullying, and depression. Strangely, some folks want pre-orders, so that we can party

Vault Review: MOTU Classics
Horde Prime


Probably one of the most unexpected figures in the Masters of the Universe Classics line has to be Horde Prime. Since he never had much of a tangible body in the Filmation series, it seemed unlikely. But the 4H and Matty found a way.

MOTU Classics.Com:
Snake Man-At-Arms Review

After writing up Spector’s review, I thought I was good to go on having to write about “controversial” MOTU figures for awhile. Well, silly me, I forgot about June’s Snake Man-At-Arms. Though he was slammed as soon as he debuted, Snake Man-At-Arms is actually a huge win

Vault Review:
MOTU Classics Stinkor


We’re playing the MOTU catch-up game this week in order to get through the box full of figures that Matty shipped us for June. So before we dig into those goodies, I need to get the last May figure out of the way:

This has been a difficult Masters of the Universe Classics review for me, as the differences of opinion on Spector have been difficult to navigate. I enjoy the figure and I’m going to say so, but I’d also like the figure to be better and I’m going

First Look at Spikor
& Sir Laser-Lot in Package

Mattel revealed two more MOTU Classics Bios yesterday with packaging reveals for July’s Spikor and August’s Sir Laser-Lot. Spikor gave Mattel an interesting opportunity to provide back story to a relatively clean-slate vintage character, but it was Sir Laser-Lot’s bio that snagged the fan’s attention.

Vault Review: MOTU Classics
Slush Head


Even though I’d never seen the space He-Man cartoon, I do remember looking through the toys at Kaybee. The two that intrigued me the most were Optikk and Slush Head. Guess I wasn’t alone since those were the first two villains Matty chose.

Mattycollector Announces
Dragon Blaster Skeletor

Mattycollector announced another upcoming MOTU Classic via a “sneak peek” e-mail to Club Eternia members. I was again left off the mailing list, but it didn’t take long for news of Dragon Blaster Skeletor to make his way to me. I gotta tell you though, I’m not

Vault Review:
MOTU Classics Draego-Man


We’re a little behind on our MOTU reviews, so I thought I’d end this week with a look at the first figure in the 30th Anniversary sub-line: Draego-Man! This guy so impressive, he’s easily become one of my favorite figures in the line

MOTU Classics.Com:
Thunder Punch He-Man Review

There’s little that challenges my fondness for nostalgia as much as a quarterly Masters of the Universe Classics He-Man armor variant. They’re not just like we remember with newly sculpted torsos and a swank action feature that provided not only added value, but something much more important
