He-Man and Beastman is the iconic villain, Skeletor! When I first saw pictures of this figure, I was a bit disappointed. Although it captured the look and feel of the classic figure, it still seemed a bit bland. But last month's MOTU Classics figures really impressed me, so I had to pick up Skeletor. Let's see if those first pictures really are indicative of the production figure.
Big movie events these days often have a comic series that serves as a prequel (read: teaser) for the movie. Such was the case with Transformers, and with the new Star Trek movie set to be released in May, we now have this Star Trek: Countdown series. This comic is apparently an attempt to form a connection between the time period of The Next Generation and that of the new movie. Beware... spoilers follow!
Toxic Crusaders was a toyline developed by Playmates in 1991 based on the Toxic Crusaders cartoon. The source material, Toxic Avenger, was a rather profane and gory B-movie classic. I suppose with the mutant mania that swept through kids in this time period courtesy of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Toxie and his mutation-altered buddies was a perfect fit with the time period.
The 2008 Masters of the Universe Classics line is a definite departure from the previous 2002 relaunch. Now that we have MOTU Classics figures in-hand, we can judge for ourselves which is cooler! So this month's poll is asks which style of MOTU you prefer: the 2002 line or the current MOTU Classics line.
