You spoil us, Pixel Dan.
You spoil us.

You spoil us, Pixel Dan.
You spoil us.
Although it's sad that he doesn't have the scar because the vintage version doesn'thave the scar, the vintage version DID NOT have the black shoulder ring on Trap-Jaw's left (non-robotic) arm. That's all 200X INFLUENCE BABY!!!

Im very happy that itīs possible to remove the left shoulder ring too!
Very happy!Great exploration Dan!
Trapjaw/ Kronis looks great! Another excellent review. Thanks, PD!
I'm hoping for a Disco Skeletor for the next subscription exclusive! Fully flocked!

I have to give Dan a lot of props(do the youngin's still use that "hip" phrase?)!!! He may be getting one of all the MOTUC figures before us for free, but I'm sure it's a real pain in the neck having to get these reviews done(especially since he said in another thread that he has 2 jobs). Not only does he do that, he also sticks around the threads to answer questions and often takes requests for new pictures of different poses. If Mattel sent me a new toy and asked me for a video review, I'd probably send the toy back, tell them "no thanks", and just wait until the 15th. I'm too lazy to have to film multiple reviews every month.
LONG LIVE LOU SCHEIMER!!!

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.
One more of Skeletor's crew down. Now all I need is Kobra Khan and the First Stringers of Evil will be done (in my 346 eyes). I'm not one for praise of others, Pixel D but I guess you doing an OK job if I was forced to admit so on pain of insufferable torment. There. That's the best you're gonna get from me being that you're a member of those weakling heroes.

Great review Dan. February is going to be an insane month.
I didn't realize his left arm was removable too. Now I know what I want to see most in an accessory/weapons pack: Tri-Klops/King Randor style arms to attach to Kronis.
These figures just keep getting better and better!
Wow... And I mean, WOW !!!
Trap-Jaw/Kronis is really awesome !!! He's a definite MUST HAVE !
I especially love the way his robotic arm is articulated and can be pointed at his ennemies... Great that his arms attachments are held firm and tight !
We can see that there's much love that went into the making of this figure... I'll be happy to buy 2 of him ! Hoping there won't be any quality control issues, of course...
And personally, the metallic blue doesn't bug me at all ! I actually find it classy !
With Evil-Lyn in April, we'll have most of Skeletor's council of evil members !
Now, I cannot wait to see the next 80's evil warriors that will be released !
The removable arms might be the way Modulok's limbs could be articulated, but the quite fragile aspect of the joint worries me a bit...
Anyway, great figure, and a very good job, Pixel Dan !
Damn, Pixel Dan, you looked tired on this one... Well, I guess 3 reviews in just one week can be tiresome, especially after work !

Nice job on the review and what a nice figure. Let's hope Matty's site doesn't blow up on Feb 16.
You can join the Illumina Facebook page here!
That's definitely a lot better than PixelDan's updated review of Reissue He-Man I saw online earlier! Yikes!
***Please follow forum rules about posting YouTube links. Thanks! ***
Pretty funny! Did a board member here do this?
I can sum up my feelings about the figure and review quite simply:
While watching Dan turning TJ into Kronos, one thought went through my mind:
Dang, that is cool!

I was on the fence about buying two Trappies to keep one as Kronis. After seeing that review, though, I'm totally buying two. And I watched it at work without the sound! Great review. Can't wait to get the audio later.
Awesome review!! Thank you.
Another excellent review Pixel Dan. I absolutely must see your reviews before I can purchase the figures on Matty. You're reviews are real thorough.
As expected, Trap Jaw looks amazing. It IS gonna be an expensive month for February.

Ohhh I am looking forward to TrapJaw probably more than any other so far!
