You’ve probably noticed there’s no King Grayskull review in our MOTU Archive. There’s a simple reason for that – none of us bought it! We liked what we saw, but we just weren’t interested in a new MOTU line after what had happened to MO2K. So we passed. Who knew that two years later we’d be running MOTUClassics.Com.
There’s the MOTU figures you really want, there’s the ones you buy only because you’re a subcriber, and then, there’s the ones that you just don’t know what to think about. Grizzlor was in the last camp for me. The Ferocious Figure with Fur? Yeah, I had no idea how I was gonna review this guy.
Roboto is one of my favorite vintage MOTU toys, but when he was announced for MOTU Classics I wasn’t feeling very intrigued. I didn’t know it was, but I wasn’t as excited as I should’ve been. Now, he’s arrived and it’s his change to win me over. Also, I promise not to make any “Domo arigato, Mr. Roboto” jokes.
Toy Guru chimed in on Facebook with the official word on Robotogate – they’re all misassembled. Toy Guru offers up his mea culpa, mentions a few others successes and some hope, and, to tide things over, gives collects an update on the MOTU Classics schedule through April.
For years now, I’ve looked on as my peers have had this obscene fascination with monkeys. I’ve never understood it. I’ve watched them buy monkey figure after monkey figure – I’ve even bought a few myself. I wasn’t usually impressed, but then again none of them were lemon-lime monkeys.
