    Great photos of both, but for sure these are the best shots I've seen of Entrapta to date

    Thank you very much for the reviews! I really like the format - I just don't like video reviews (don't really have time to watch and I'd rather direct myself at what I'd like to look at) and you guys certainly show every angle I could want. The writing is also very insightful. Kudos!


    As to the figures, pretty happy with both. Solid 8.5 for Flutterina (because of her flying poses, she really needed boot cut - but she still looks great), 9.0 for Entrapta - I agree the hair has sufficient articulation, more is always nice but looks great to me without compromising the sculpt.

    Much better than DT - I hope the rest of the sub goes in this direction!

    Just wrapped up photographing Gwildor and will have a full photo gallery posted tomorrow. In the meantime, I wanted to share an image that cracked me up. The good news (or bad news if you're Blade) is that the Gwildor head/neck is compatible with other MOTUC figures.

    We just posted our MOTU Giants Stratos review. I know they call them Giants for a reason, but I didn't realize just how big these figures were until I put a Classics Stratos figure beside the Giant.

    Our latest wave of review samples arrived on Friday and we've been busy getting them ready for review this week. He's a quick look at what's to come.

    It's nice to see someone finally post that combination (first I've seen). Those two look very nice together (and I prefer the vintage Battle Cat!). Id be curious to see SA King Grayskull on Battle Lion.

    The 200x He-man / Battle Cat combo looks amazing. Very, very nice. Thanks for posting that picture. Can't wait to do the same soon.

    Amazing! I love the lighting (I've always thought your lighting was fantastic - it made Frosta look halfway decent) and the poses. Great going Rich

    Don't mess with Fisto! Ninjor first look coming soon, but I will note that I'm really impressed / surprised at how well the figure balances and how easy it is to get it into some pretty dynamic poses without it tipping over.

    Love the more action based shots in your reviews, they really help set them apart from other reviews and make the figures come to life. Looking forward to seeing more of Ninjor.

    Thanks Rafi & Jake. Appreciate the compliments and feedback. Do you think I should cut back on the generic photos showing all the angles and focus more the the mini stories I'm telling with these or continue as is?

    Jistu review is now up at http://pop-critica.com/first-look-mattel-masters-of-the-universe-classics-ninja-warrior-ninjor/.

    Definitely continue as you have been. The generic shots show off the figure itself and highlights the details, while your action based story shorts show off a figures playability and possibilities. It's a really nice mix of hitting the important points of an action figure.

    Hey everyone, we had the opportunity to attend the MattyCollector event at Toy fair and grabbed some pics and a pair of videos of the MOTUC items on display. The contextual link includes a video that focuses on the 200X items, but also shows off the lenticular sticker on the Hover Bots.
