Following up on my recent post about this incredibly cool custom hammer by friend Joe Amaro, Joe has updated his blog with these images of the final product!
“The Mystic Hammer sculpt is now finished! Here are some pictures of the hammer with various figures to give you an idea of scale. The size is 5.5″ tall by 4” wide. It’s now off to get casted and then they will be ready for sale. I do not have a pre-order section. I will post a link here and on Twitter to the sale page when they are ready.”
In case you haven’t seen it yet, Scott “ToyGuru” Neitlich has once again posted a short video to show off some features on upcoming action figures. He answers questions about how the arm attachments will work on MOTU Classics Spikor and shows how the interchangeable legs work on Ghostbusters Dana.
Maybe someone can clear this up for me. Is Dana articulated at all? When she was shown to us at Toy Fair, I was under the impression that when she has her “normal” legs on, she would still have some articulation. I figured at least the head and arms still moved, and I likened this interchangeable legs feature to the most recent Slave Leia figure that Hasbro put out. I loved that figure, so thought it was cool Mattel was handling Dana the same way. However, I’ve seen a lot of people upset, saying Dana is more of a statue than a figure. So maybe I was wrong about the articulation?
As far as Spikor goes, I love the way they handled his trident. And I think it’s extra cool that the attachments use the same plug in as Trap Jaw, Roboto, and Hurricane Hordak. Definitely not something that was necessary, but col to see it included.
Mattel has sent me yet another teaser image to share with you all. This time it’s this tiny little image of a portion of Mosquitor’s thigh.
I am told that it was the idea of Cornboy from Four Horsemen Design that I am teased with tiny pictures like this leading up to the big reveal. If they are trying to kill me with anticipation, I think it’s working. This is pure torture!
But, I am still on Cloud 9 knowing that my all-time favorite character will be coming to Masters of the Universe Classics this year!
I’m sure many of you have seen this by now, but I wanted to share it anyway just in case. Scott “Toyguru” Neitlich put up a quick video to show off the funcionality of the upcoming SDCC Vykron. We also get a look at the packaging as well. And look, Spikor!
The goofy looking trio you see above is the Masters of the Universe Classics exclusive known as Vykron. At least, the barbarian guy is Vyrkon. I’m unsure yet if the other two have been given official names. But in a nutshell, it’s one figure that includes three outfits: a barbarian, a military man, and a space man.
For those in the know, you will immediately recognize what this is. But it seems that there are a lot of fans and collectors out there that are completely thrown off by this exclusive. Many seem to not know what these odd looking figures represent.
