    Electrified Porcupine’s Masters of the Universe Classics Reviews/Rewind Features

    Hi, everyone!

    I’m Peter and I run www.electrifiedporcupine.com. I’ve read these forums for years and years but have rarely posted. I started my site early this year because my friends encouraged me to share what I purchase and my love of toys (especially MOTU), music, and the other stuff on my site instead of just reading others. So I did!

    Anyway, Val invited me to start a thread that shows the features I’ve already done and add to it as I go along. I know that these figures have been looked at in written and video form before, but I decided that I’d go through the Masters of the Universe Classics series from the beginning and bring a potentially different insight to the line now that we’ve gotten through the vintage line and see how well these figures hold up a few years later after their release (in terms of aesthetics, design choices, shared parts, and overall durability).

    I own the complete line so far minus the first King Grayskull, Twistoid and Rotar (I’m in the same boat as many of you) and the Green Granamyr (lousy Canadian dollar makes it really pricey). I hope you like my look back at these figures and my reviews/looks at the current figures from the Collector’s Choice line and Club Grayskull. I’ll also be on the Super 7 bandwagon as long as the shipping to Canada isn’t nuts.

    Feel free to give me constructive feedback. I feel I’ve found my groove now and my pictures are getting better (and my equipment to take them has improved, too). I have purchased these with my own money and feel I can share honestly as I’m not answering to any company sending out samples. Enjoy!

    Peter, I'm quite blown away by your site. And here I thought I had a relatively good handle on sites that review MOTU! Too busy to do so now, but am looking forward to reading through your selections...

    Hey, everyone!

    I've added my review of Evil-Lyn from Club Grayskull and I don't sugar coat my disappointment with it.

    Glad you shared them here! You always post them to the Org FB page, and you put so much work into them, that I thought it would be great to share them here too.

    New follower here, Peter, loved the honesty in your EL post thanks for the reciprocal follow as well

    BTW, that quote by Mr. Steele is one of my favorites!

    Thanks for all the likes on the FB page and followers on my official site guys as well as all the positive vibes for all that I've done this year as a new guy to all of this (except the actual collecting part)! I've added Grizzlor today. King Grayskull and Buzz-Off should be coming in the next few days and I'll be finished my look back at MOTUC 2010. Cheers!

    Another great review. I love Grizzlor, partly because a line can never have enough furry characters!
