ToyGuru talks Ghostbusters ZUUL & MOTUC Griffin
Thursday, May 24th, 2012 by Pixel Dan
Scott “ToyGuru” Neitlich from Mattel has once again posted an update video showcasing some upcoming figures from MattyCollector.com. This time we get a look at the Masters of the Universe Classics Griffin and more detailed information on Ghostbusters Dana as ZUUL.
On ZUUL: I like the mailer box. That’s pretty slick. But I sort of wish the rest of the packaging were something a little more special since she’s a SDCC exclusive now. But then again, MOC Ghostbusters fans will probably enjoy that her box matches up with all of the others from the line.
We did get some more information on her poseability in this one. I guess I was wrong when I originally stated that she was fully articulated. I always got the impression that this figure was going to be similar to the Slave Leia figure from the Star Wars line that Hasbro released a few years back. It had the same feature, where you can pull off her legs and plug in ‘sitting’ legs so she could sit in front of Jabba. But when she’s got her normal legs on, she’s a fully poseable figure.
Dana is different. The only parts on her that move appear to be her head and waist. Her arms and legs are completely static. Scott says in the video it was becuase they had to cut the articulation since she was a 100% new tool. So essentially, she’s a statue.
She looks nice in the sitting pose, and I’ll just be displaying her on a shelf like that anyway. But I still can’t help but feel a little disappointed about the lack of articulation.
As for the Griffin, he remains to be one of those figures I never knew I wanted until the Horsemen made him. I think he looks great, although he does appear to have the same problem with his wings popping off randomly like Swift Wind.
What do you all think of these figures?
