    Waist spring action feature

    As of late I've been chasing down figures to complete an Evil Horde collection. I have come across close to a handful both of Mantenna and Hurrican Hordak having the swivel waist joint but no spring action. For the first couple of figures I figured they were just broken (happens from time to time) but by the now fifth Mantenna I've begun to wonder wether I'v just been unlucky or if they never had a spring installed.
    I just cracked open an already destroyed Skeletor and seeing how the spring was installed in a standard torso I figure that haven't been possible at least with Mantenna and Hurricane Hordak. I figure Snout Sprout for his build also did not have this action. Quite honestly I do not remember these details form childhood though I did have, I think, all of the mentioned figures.

    Other than the figures which had no swivel waist joint, were there any figures that did not have the spring action feature, as in simply just a loose swivel joint?

    Mantenna did not have a spring waist (mine did not) and I bet Hurricane Hordak didn't either due to his action feature (did not have a vintage one).

    Yeah dude, Zargon is reigning down mighty knowledge with his brain.
    Some action features replace the punch action. Mantenna's eyes, Hurry Hord's spinning weapon arm, Meks neck etc.
    So be cool.

    Sounds good, thanks dudes!
    That adds a complete Sugarcane Murdoc, Mosquitor and Mantenna to my Evil Horde, which is excellent.
