    TMR's MOTUC reviews and features

    Hi everyone, some of you may remember me from way back, and a few may even remember the "comic strips" I used to do using the 2002 figures.
    I started The Midnight Rant seven years ago as a blog devoted to classic horror, but it quickly expanded to cover everything that interests me. Naturally, that includes MOTU. I've been doing (mostly) weekly reviews of MOTUC figures, beasts, and vehicles for most of this year, after I returned to collecting the line. (Financial issues forced me to bow out back in 2010.) I figured I'd start sharing them here in hopes that some of you would enjoy them! (Do note that the occasional four-letter word is present is a few of them, in case that offends you. Nothing too bad, though, usually a single use of the "s" word, and most are entirely kid-friendly. The relevant ones are marked as PG-13 in the list below so they can be easily avoided if desired. Also keep in mind that a few of the earliest reviews feature fewer photos, and poorer quality photos in general, as I did not have my current setup at the time.)
    As for those comic strips, there's a taste of them in most of the reviews, and they'll be returning in full soon!

    Here's a master list of all my MOTUC reviews, from newest to oldest:
    Extendar
    Lodar
    Wind Raider (PG-13, with full length comic story)
    Despara
    Man-E-Faces (PG-13)
    Fang Man
    Geldor
    Strongarm (Strong-Or)
    Blade
    Stinkor
    Sorceress (Temple of Darkness)
    Prahvus
    Ram Man (Ultimate version)
    Bow
    Gygor
    Octavia (PG-13)
    Vultak (PG-13)
    Clamp Champ
    Skeletor versions (Halloween feature, PG-13)
    Optikk (PG-13)
    Trap Jaw
    Beast Man (PG-13)
    Serpentine King Hiss
    Battle Ram with Man-at-Arms
    Goat Man
    Procrustus
    Battleground Teela
    Oo-Larr, the jungle He-Man
    Multi-Bot
    Point Dread & the Talon Fighter with Teela
    Saurod
    Anti-Eternia He-Man
    The Faceless One

    Comments and discussion are always welcome, either here or on my site. Here are a few of my favorite photos from some of the older reviews as a preview. Hope you all enjoy!

    Some health and family issues prevented me from getting reviews posted the past couple of weeks, but I'm back on track now! The subject of today's review is Stinkor!

    We're moving back into MOTU movie territory with today's review: Blade!

    Hey, aren't they supposed to deliver those things in plain, nondescript packaging? Fang Man returns from Eternia's prehistory for today's review!

    Today's review is Man-e-Faces!

    Thanks! I love the idea that Vultak is so sleazy and demented that he even creeps out Hordak.

    Thanks, and he's definitely a favorite of mine too! He was a priority for me to get when I returned to the line, I lucked out and got a pretty decent deal on him.

    Lucky for you sir for getting him in a better price. Next to he-man, mef is the next most important to me personally and he is really well executed even with the black eyes and "undecidedly" skin color.

    Still need to catch up on reading your review. Those photos are hilariously fun too

    Today's review focuses on the Wind Raider! As a bonus, since this is also my 300th blog post, I did a full-length comic story for the first time in many years. Enjoy!

    I love it... really nice. I know it is tedious to make but it would be nice to have more of this comic style
