Third one this week!
If people are worried about the gaps between the chest and shoulders on Kronis, they can always leave the two black pieces on each side to hide the gaps.... kinda like the way he looks here.

DANGER - DANGER
NICE - thanks for the review
Question: IS Kronis supposed to have the armor pieces removed? I mean, I guess so, because why would the Left arm be removeable, but I am curious about the armor. They didn't display him that way:
BUT, again, WHY is the left arm removeable??? Is it because this removeable arm thing is going to be used for other figures? Is the buck basically changed entirely inside in order to accomodate this feature?
I imagine Hurricane Hordak will use it. But Who needs his LEFT arm removeable? King Hiss? Ssqueeze?

You are on a roll, Dan! Beast-Dan. Hey I think I just figured out the celeb figure it's Dan!!
Awesomeness! You've been very busy.
I had NO idea both arms could come out and he had the extra back piece in his left shoulder! That's wicked.
Two for me.

GREAT review Dan!
This is one of my most anticipated figures because I always thought TrapJaw was AWESOME and there are so many pieces...how cool!
You can put the right arm on with the black armor part still attached right? Cause I will display him like that most likely.

Wow, another one? Can't wait for this figure.
bcrduke, you are right. In the comic and cartoon he ALWAYS had both shoulder pieces on. He has never been shown without them. Well...the big chest one came off when Skelly ripped off his arm...

The last 3 reviews have been stellar. Thanks. Very interesting about the left arm...
Although all this Trap Jaw business popping out of nowhere this week is driving me crazy! Overload of MOTUC this week for sure.
Great work Pixel Dan, another great review, WOW they just keep coming.
I think you could legitimately display Kronis either way, with reference to the removable black shoulder pieces.

Whoot! Excellent review of an unbelievably cool figure. Trapjaw has always ben in my top 3 baddie list - can't wait for him. May have to repaint his eyes for a more Sith Lord look...
Tight joints Dan?
Thanks you so much for another great review Danny, I was sooo much in anticipation for this one...
I can't think of any other future evil figure that could top this one really, unless if it's a 200X Trap-Jaw rendition!
I hope the quality control on all future figures is up to par from now on, because this is becoming the best action figure line that I can think of, and it's really sad to see it suffering from all hideous problems that we've witnessed to date!
Please please Mattel, give this line the attention it deserves!
Epic Metal music rocks the universe.
Man! Another stellar review! So far, each figure gets better and better! I can't wait for your review of Moss Man.

Looks like Trap Jaw will be taking Skeletor's place as my new favourite figure. I can't wait for February - Battle Cat AND TJ! Best month for MOTU ever!
Thanks guys! I'm glad you enjoyed the video. Even if I did take off his armor when turning him to Kronis.
The goal is to get the review of the stands up by Friday evening.
OH MAN I WANT THIS FIGURE TWICE!
Thanks Dan! Not only for the excellent review, but also for making me aware that there is a comic explaining how kronis became trapjaw AND that this figure is going on sale next month!! I thought it was going to be july's figure for some reason ...
Thanks for letting me know that the arm pegs could weaken from repeated switching over time. It's why I'm buying two...so there's no chance of that happening. If it does happen, I'll have spare arms...
Kronis always wore the black armor parts.

HOLY kapow! no one has mentioned this? Dont get me wrong before I say it, it's no deal breaker, he's still obviously one of the best figures so fare but...
HE DOESNT HAVE THE STICHED SCAR ON HIS CHEST!?!? really? I mean, I know they'd hardly want to make a new buck top chest for that but....awe man, that's so a part of him. I'll gladly carve it on him, but...is it there and I just keep missing it, or is it not as it appears?
I cant belive this vulture hungry negative nancy fourums (at times, guys at times, not always always) didnt jump on this immediately and I hadnt thought of it till now.
EDIT: evidentally I added teh scar onto the original toy in my memory.

Another great review - it's been a great week for MOTUC in large part due to these reviews so thanks for the hard work Dan and to Mattel for sending them to him!
You have been busy this week Dan! Great job, as always!!!
In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan,
Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone;
Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow,
In the bleak midwinter, long ago......a stable place sufficed.
What can I give Him, poor as I am?
If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb;
If I were a Wise Man, I would do my part;
Yet what can I give Him?....[I can] give my heart.
