Beyond happy Mattel went truly classic here and gave Grizzlor the fur. It wouldn’t have been the same without it. The face sculpt is updated quite well, with Grizzlor now looking more ferocious compared to the vintage figure. The added arsenal of weapons on the pack is also very welcome, and the fact that it’s basically hidden unless we turn the figure around really helps to keep the figure’s vintage design intact while having an extra cool feature. I would have preferred the limbs to be more in line, size and sculpt-wise, with the vintage figure, but the basic “beast” buck’s arms and legs work okay here, so it’s a minor quibble.
Who needs smaller arms and legs?
