I feel he was EXTREMELY over-hyped. Whether one likes the figure or not, he doesn't answer any of the questions Mattel promised he would answer in their press release:
- Why he comes with a second head
- What wrongdoing what wrought by his magic blast
- The visual cues he has that "tell his story"
- How he's a love letter to fans
Toyguru said the reason The Unnamed One was made for 2014, was because he was to tie up a lot of loose ends in the bios and answer questions. I don't feel we got any answers with him. So, yes, I would call that over-hyped.
