    Thanks Dan! Awesome as usual. Can't wait for this figure.

    Anyway, I was thinking the staff might come off a little short. Doesn't seem like it'll bother me much, but I can see what you're saying. I gotta say, just the fact that the tattoos glow is pretty awesome as it is! All together, though, the figure looks great. Even if it's a little short, I glad they changed the staff into something a little more useable. The one with the 200X version just seemed awkward and club-like.

    Great review, Dan! You answered most of my questions. However, I couldn't tell if the figure had shading on his skin/muscles or not. Again, great review!
    I'm hoping for a Disco Skeletor for the next subscription exclusive! Fully flocked!

    Awesome review man!! I love how you posed the two Zodac/ks in the last picture.
    This Zodak is so much better than the classic one. No doubt about it.

    Cool review, and I always love "Comparison time".
    The final pose with the 2 of them together is perfect.

    Great review as always. I have no interest in this figure, but Mattel could have at least done a little something with the head to differentiate it more from Zodac and made it a little more 200x/MYP, such as, as many have stated, a removable helmet. The chest armor is also just a little off in comparison to the 200x version.

    Great review as always!

    I'm so gonna get this bad boy,
    he's way cooler than Zodac, I think so anyway.

    I'm not a fan of the 200X line,
    so when you say, that he is 'less neutral',
    does that mean more evil or good?!
    Armageddon will soon be here,
    the sinners will meet their fate.
    But I am calm and without fear,
    as I feed upon my hate.

    It means he is more good. Zodak battled the Snake Men in the 200X series.

    Great review and the figure is not bad either. I'm getting one Zodak, because he is different character than Zodac (otherwise I wouldn't).

    Although I'm personally not over-bothered about Zodak with a K, I'll still be picking one up. This review gives a good taster.
    Particularly like the glow in the dark tattoos.

    Great preview Dan! But it's incomplete without a dark scene where we can see the blue marks in the Zodak skin glowing!

    Yep, I definitely will. But my personal opinion is always stated as such: my opinion.

    Zodac was probably my least favorite figure to date. And while I consider myself much more of a classic fan, if there's one thing I really liked in the 200x series, it was Zodak. I do prefer this figure over the previous release.

    As for shading on the muscles, I don't think he has it. I'll double check, but I don't remember that standing out to me at all.

    Seriously, no matter how I stated that, I'd be called a racist. A guy is already yelling at me about it on the YouTube comments. lol.

    I tried. Ic ouldn't get it to turn out. The glowing feature on these tatoos is really light. What I need is a black light. That would have helped a lot...

    I'll definitely do my best to get glowing shots of Scareglow, though.

    I think you could've avoided that by just saying he was Black or African American. You inadvertently emphasize it by avoiding it.

    However do appreciate that folks over there can be often as irrational as they are loud.
