    Blast Attack arrival thread!

    I'm surprised this hasn't been started yet! Got him today, nice figure. Good update! Wish at least he could come apart at the waist like King Hisss plus removable arms would have made him near perfect. Here's some pics....

    I wonder how tough it would be to separate his torso and parts? I may buy another one, and try to customize it to "break apart".

    I can't wait to get my mitts on this guy. I loved the original and have find memories of showing him to my Grandma, horrifying her with his exploding action feature. Interestingly enough, this is when I learned the term "suicide bomber."
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    I'm also surprised. This has to be one of the best MOTUC releases yet. I like the real oddball designs---and I'm also a fan of classic EVIL WARRIORS!

    Yeah, I said it "Evil Warrior" in reference in to Blast-Attak...I display my figures mostly by "faction", and not only is he displayed with my Evil Warriors as far away from the Snake-Men as possible, he's also holding a sign that reads "I'M NOT A SNAKE-MAN"

    Dang, I HATE posing my King Hiss because of how his "come-apart" feature has compromised a certain amt. of "standing ability"---I guess it's kinda okay because at least I can display Hiss as a Snake-Monster----what is Blast-Attak if he's displayed in pieces? I'll tell ya what: "Broken"

    So, with respect towards you and towards others who would've preferred a harder to manage figure in a toyline aimed at adults (as opposed to children who'd sit around playing scenarios where Blast-Attak would roll into the Snake-Man fortress and explode, or something like that), I say to Mattel---thank you---thank you very much for making Blast-Attak a really cool figure without the potential of coming apart every five minutes if he isn't arranged "just so"---

    Indeed, with the release of a figure as cool as Blast-Attak, I almost forgive you for your Rio "falling to pieces as we speak" Blast product presentation.

    Pretty cool!

    Nonetheless, I know the design is based on the original, but his humanoid/organic face creeps me out, especially given his supposed "action" feature.

    I wonder ... I might give him a Roboto head when the 200x head pack rolls out, or keep an eye out for the work of an awesome customizer.

    ^That would have been perfect! I will see if I can find a customizer to try and make this work.

    It is an approximation of where his Detonator Plug fit on the Vintage figure. It is non-functional here, of course, but it looks just like the Original. :^)

    P.S.: My Blast-Attak just this minute arrived on my doorstep! Wheee! [^D

    No, the slot isn't remotely deep enough. We're Nostalgic, but we're not CRAZY! [^D

    I think that many people who are disappointed that Blast-Attak doesn't come in two like the Vintage figure are forgetting that the New version "comes apart" in a way the Old one didn't...!

    This guy is in the same category as most of NA....a character I had no real love of, but ended but turning up awesome!

    I can't believe I'm actually excited to get him. I think he looks great.

    My suicide bomber arrived, and I have a question: Is it just m, or is his left hand open too wide to hold either weapon securely?
