MORE TOYS OM NOM NOM. Slushy
: Man, I can't believe I'm sayin' this, but I'm actually glad Slushy's tenticles aren't bendy! I mean yeah, I would have liked that for other posing options, but having them fixed like that actually makes him more fun for play than for display. They can knock dudes over, trip up their legs, grab weapons, etc. It's pretty cool! That, and they are fixed in a perfect position no matter which side you have them on. Only complaint I have is that, after looking at his dome - he could have TOTALLY had a turnable head. Dunno how that passed them up. Overall though, I love 'em! Never had 'em as a kid, so it's cool to finally have a version of him. Also glad that he can use his weapon both ways!Spector:
SO COOL. I knew I would like him but he's even better in-hand. He embodies everything that was simplistic about my old drawings as a kid, and it's cool to have that child-like spirit in the 30th line. In fact, I'd say all the reveals so far are very child-like in spirit, and I think that's one of the most important parts (besides the fact that it's like going to the store and discovering brand new toys you've never seen). Of course, beyond all that, I just like the simple design and the ideas behind him. Gun, energy knife, and the coolest little cosmic key ever. It's funny; he has less tech than some MotU figures, yet still has that....from-the-future feel. I'll have to wait until I get Sir Laser-Lot, but I think Spector might be my favorite from the 30th line in terms of playability. Draego certainly takes the cake for PURE ARTISTIC joy and amazment, but he's kinda hard to get into dynamic poses with the huge tail in the way (which I feel was a failing of Whiplash as well, since the original figure's tail was nice 'n rubbery).STINKY:
WOW. Never had this guy when I was little, but WHOO BOY I am impressed! Way cooler than I thought he would be; I mean seriously. Part of that....well, part of that may be from this little misshap:
AAAAHHHHGGHHH!! No pupils in my 200X head! When I first unboxed him I was disappointed...but then I put the head on. Man, look at that creepy sucker!! Isn't that awesome? Still, I made a post at He-Man.org's marketplace to see if anyone didn't want the 200X head so I can get a correct one, but I wana keep this head 'cause it's so hilarious and creepy. Funny how my first error figure (to the point where I would consider sending it back) is actually a happy accident. So cool! Only one other problem...
...the vintage head is screwed up too! I'm already in negotiations for a vintage head, so at least that'll get fixed. We'll see if anyone is willing to get rid of a 200X head for me as well.
Beyond all that, though: Stinkor is friggin' awesome! The arms don't even bother me like I thought they would. Really a great figure all around; especially because of my crazy mistake horror head!
