Masters of the Universe Classics Procrustus Figure Review
Thursday, December 6th, 2012 by Pixel Dan
Straight out of the vintage mini comics comes Procrustus, the giant who holds Eternia together from it’s center!
Join me for an early look at this upcoming MOTU Classics oversized figure from Mattel!
Good stuff, Dan! Love this Giant!
I was 6 years old when MOTU launched and was obsessed with MOTU… but I really have no idea who this figure is.
I am guessing adults that only collect on a casual basis are confused by this release?
Totally, I had no idea who he was when they revealed him. Makes a sweet looking figure, though!
That's a nice design right there. I look forward to buyin' 'im.
I really hate loincloths
Yeah, but imagine if he was wearing a thong.
Gods should proudly show off their rocks
Maybe Mattel should do the same thing to the arms, for their assembly workers, that they did here for the customers… Then we might not get any more reversed limbs! 😉
Actually, the parts ARE labeled like this… What has happened for some figures is that the parts were labeled incorrectly from the molds.
He looks great but I also have to say that I had no idea who this character was and I have been a huge fan since I was young. I live in europe and I loved the minicomics when I was a kid but Im not even sure if this mincomic was even released in europe. Maybe someone can correct me on that. I googled that "the magic stealer" came with meckaneck, he-man and skeletor but I never saw any of them with this comic. In Sweden we got the doublel "Masters, Maitres" logo cards and sometimes the french cards with yellow boarder (I saved them all) And thats the reason I had no clue who he was, I never read or heard of this minicomic. But he looks great.
Procrustus is awesome! He was a top 3 on my list of figures not yet made into figures. Just need a Goatman and Lord Masque to finish my top 3. I never thought Procrustus would get made so I have renewed faith in my other two wants! I was so happy to find out he was getting a figure and I can't wait to get him.
Ram Man looks great too! Like the He-Man head sized fists. My only complaint is the French Stewart/Gilbert Godfrey squinty eyes. I love the Ram Man, but I can't look at his eyes and not see the FS/GG resemblance.
Really like the sculpt of this figure. It Looks like he really is made or stone or granite. Its just has a tactile texture you can feel just looking at him.
Horsemen really nailed this one. Great review too.
Really cool figure. I need to dig out the mini comic and read it again.
Thanks, Dan! Finally GORO, yes! ….oh wait..
Piecrustus! I like him…I think…yeah, I guess I do, being a selective completeist and all…
I don't have any of the giants (no interest), but this guy looks cool. I think the only thing that I would change if I got him is that I would swap his two left hands so that he can hold some kind of weapon with his lower arm.
