Several reviews back, I pontificated about the bizarre appeal of Masters of the Universe (MOTU) as a whole. I mean, it’s completely ludicrous. It’s got a rehashed Arthurian mythology where the guy gets a Hollywood tan and is best mates with a talking tiger, a unsuccessful wizard, and Magnum P.I. in body armour. And it’sContinue reading “MOTU Origins Land Shark review”
Remember when I reviewed the Masters of the Universe (MOTU) Origins She-Ra and hoped more characters from the world of He-Man’s twin sister would be included in the Origins line? Course you don’t. Well anyway, Mattel has done that now with the release of She-Ra’s arch enemy/kidnapper/adoptive father, the leader of the evil Horde (no,Continue reading “MOTU Origins Hordak review”
Mattel’s reimagining of their old Masters of the Universe (MOTU) toy line, MOTU Origins has had its detractors, especially concerning the two leads, He-Man and Skeletor. Even though it’s been over a year I still see the odd, “Skeletor’s headsculpt is rubbish” or “why does He-Man look like his horse just lost?” pop up inContinue reading “MOTU Origins Battle Armor Skeletor review”
In 1982 the Eternian royal air force established an elite school for the top one percent of its pilots. Its purpose was to teach the lost art of aerial combat and to insure that the handful who graduated were the best fighter pilots in the world. They succeeded. Today, the Eternian air force calls itContinue reading “MOTU Origins Stratos review”
In the ever growing market for retro toys, comprising of remakes and re releases of old toy lines aimed at gen-xers and millennials with disposable income, is showing no signs of slowing down (at time of writing) one toy company in particular has carved out their own niche in the nostalgia market, probably because they’veContinue reading “Neca Defenders of the Earth Phantom review”
Oh look, it’s another one of those Masters of the Universe (MOTU) Origins figures that are a reboot of the original 80s toyline. We’ve had three waves of figures, one vehicle, two mounts, a castle, and one “deluxe” figure. And at this point we start to reach, what I call, the “subs bench”. Not quiteContinue reading “MOTU Origins Deluxe Clamp Champ review”
Fledgling wrestling promotion, All Elite Wrestling (AEW) has done quite a few things to change the landscape of wrestling on TV, some good (giving performers more creative freedom to stand out from the norm), some bad (remind me, does AEW still have a women’s division?) but most of all it has introduced new talent toContinue reading “AEW Unrivaled Darby Allin review”
Where are we now with Masters of the universe (MOTU) Origins? Is this wave four? No. As Mattel expands the cast list of their reboot of the 80s franchise about a guy whose super power is getting an instant tan, so does the toys we see at retail. We’ve already had three waves of actionContinue reading “MOTU Origins deluxe Ram Man review”
Since Mattel rebooted Masters of the universe (MOTU), its 80s action figure line about gym guys with pun-based abilities (can you guess what Extendar does?) fighting a skull man and his army of Wizard of Oz rejects, as “MOTU Origins” I was interested in the concept of taking the original toy designs and updating themContinue reading “MOTU Origins Panthor review”
This has been a long time coming. And that’s not an exaggeration. I can remember when Neca’s prototype of Greta, the memorable female gremlin from Gremlins 2, first appeared…actually that’s a lie, it was so many years ago that I’m unsure whether she was shown at San Diego comic con or New York toy fairContinue reading “Neca Gremlins 2 ultimate Greta review”
