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.
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 Comic-con package gets here.
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.
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 so far.
Kobra Khan's almost here, so it's a great time to wrap up February’s Masters of the Universe haul. Last on our list is the Sorceress. One of the few Masters of the Universe Classics figures to have an action feature which is unusual because I don't think her vintage figure did.
The New Adventures of He-Man is a strange corner of the MOTU Universe. On the surface it doesn’t do much to fit into the original series. But the blending seems to go a lot smoother with the Classics continuity, which is why I’m excited to see these characters in the line.
