    Shared it to my page. Great video He-Bro! Love that custom hood you showed off. Nice sharp image quality too. What camera do you use?

    A great review, BUT I have to agree with some that they do look like knock offs compared to what we've had before...the shiny plastic is nasty...the changes in design...I dunno I'm leaning towards flipping thes when they arrive... Maybe Super7 will get future waves right and they do deserve a chance, but kinda sorry I purchased the CG wave 2 now... :/

    Plasma is probably the best looking one of the three...

    AWESOME video. I expect nothing less from you He-bro. Everything you do is a great asset to the MOTU community.

    So, awesome about the ankle rockers, transparent gem on Plasmar, but what's up with the Pegs on the Trap-Jaw weapons? So we have TWO characters with the trap jaw arm from powercon, and neither of them will be able to swap weapons with all of the other Roboto/trap jaw accessories? Guess It just didn't pay to buy all of those weapon paks. Some decisions are great, others, baffling.

    Nice thorough review.

    I did not realize the arm attachments were not backward compatible.

    I was surprised too about the attachment points. I do really like the ankle rockers, it also alleviates the gap between the foot and ankle.

    I know, right? (The attachments do work better though)

    As I'd posted/video-reviewed, I agree completely. I like the figure, so I don't mean to be overly-critical of it, but ... that rope on the cape... super fragile seeming, to me. Not a knock on the figure as much as a "be warned".

    I'm still very happy with them. And a number of other fans are too. But I completely understand the reasons other fans are not satisfied. I wish they had been perfect.


    As far as other unreleased figures, we'll have to see.
    Hope to see you at Power-Con 2018!

    Love the villains' designs, Plasmar's fine but seems a bit generic. They all fit right into the collection on my shelf just fine.
    MOTUC Wishlist: Songster, Evil Robot, Tuvar and Badra, Game Master, Grayskull Robot, Andros, Monstroid, the new villains from He-Ro/Dare

    Ugh! I didn't realize that Terroar's attachment pegs were designed differently!! Unbelievable. This goes to show how disappointed I am in these figures that I put them away immediately after inspection and missed even more problems. lol.
    TOP WANTS:

    SONGSTER, EVIL ROBOT, SAGITAR, ARTILLA, TUVAR, BADDHRA, SLIME PIT BONE WARRIOR,

    Nice vid He-bro! I'd somehow missed that these have new ankle articulation. Looks great!
    200X fan? Classic fan? What does that mean? I'm a MotU fan!!!
