Masters of the Universe Classics Mekaneck Figure Review
Friday, September 7th, 2012 by Pixel Dan
Alright, are you guys ready for an onslaught of new MOTU Classics reviews? Let’s kick things off with Mekaneck!
Mekaneck is a “heavy hitter,” being a core member of the Heroic Warriors! How does this new Classics version of the character look outside of the package?
Join Pixel Dan for an advanced look at this upcoming figure from Mattel!
Video after the jump!
Mekaneck will be available on MattyCollector.com on September 17th, 2012!
Pretty nice figure. I've never been a big Mek fan, but I'm diggin' him. Seeing him next to 200x Mek makes me wish that the classics one had slightly green tinted lenses in his goggles, but that's the only thing from the 200x design that I miss.
Nice. The helmet thing doesn't really bother me, I can live with it. Only thing I would have changed would be to make the blue collar piece at the bottom of the next extensions a separate piece to lock onto the torso. Will look awesome next to He-Man and the other heroic warriors.
this is one figure that strictly adhering to the classics style really works and looks better than some ( ahem cough, cough..buzz-off cough cough) The neck attachment is cool as well.
I didn't even like Mek when i was kid , but seeing this review..i want this ! 🙂
great review! thanks dan
CANNOT wait for this one – yet another perfect update of the vintage figure …
the helmet/head alignment doesn't bother me in the slightest and im sure i will feel the same once i have the figure in hand …
Mek looks great! Can’t wait to get him, but my question is when can we expect a Dragon Blaster Skeletor review. Thanks Dan…
Should be up this weekend sometime. I also have Frosta, Cy-Chop, Rattlor, and the Snake Men 2-Pack. I'm working hard to get all of these videos up over the course of the next few days.
Awesome update. I'm really happy with this figure. Looking forward to adding him to my collection.
If my memory serves corectly he was my second MOTU figure s a kid, Man-E-Faces being the first. It sucks that we can't stack the neck bits with out the collar bits.
Could there be some cool sculpting under the helmet like with Tri-klops?
I look forward to the Snake Men Army Builder Review, but save the best for last!
Doesn't look like there is any sculpting under the helmet, from what I can tell.
Dan, do you think the Helmet on yours was just glued a little to high, as in some of the Sorceress figures?
So far, every Mekaneck figure has looked like this, including the one that was on display at SDCC. So I think this is going to be the case on everyone's, unfortunately.
Hahah! Thats what buying a second Mek figure is for! Extra neck parts and for a spare head ot experiment on! Rip that sucker apart an modify teh second head to try an fix it… lol.
He's just awesome !
Nice review again, Dan! He has always reminded me a little of plastic man. I can't wait to mess around with that neck on some of the other figures, though. Orko first, I think…
i love this figure. perfect design but man that high helmet irks me to no end. ugh.
I am confused as to why people have an issue with Mecks helmet. Have we ever (in any media) seen him take those goggles off? I don't recall it… so how do we know he has eyes in the traditional sense? Or they might not work anymore, maybe he is blind without the goggles which are linked directly to his brain or something. He could have cybernetic implants, after all he has a nanite neck. Maybe his goggles provide additional sight skills or enable him to see further and so don't need to be over where his eyes would be.In a world where we have guys with elephant heads and three spinning eyes and cameras for a head it just seems strange that we can't suspend disbelief here. Great review as every though Dan, can't wait for this guy.
srly, why do they all have loin cloths.
It's the style in Eternia!
Great review Dan as always. This figure looks awesome and the paint job is top notch. Mek was one of those figures it took me awhile to warm up to but after I did I used him all the time. I used to love to have Mek knock other figures down using his head. Awesome times back then.
I think the helmet issue is worse than the Stinkor forearms issue. I'm suprised there hasn't been more complaining about it…maybe we've just come to expect these types of gafs? …otherwise, beautiful!
