Action Figure Review: Drift from Fortnite: Legendary Series by Jazwares


    It really feels like everything has come out at once, doesn't it? New Fortnite: Legendary Series figures, G.I. Joe Classified Series, Masters of the Universe Origins, more Marvel Legends; The end of July and beginning of August has been crazy! Today I'm checking out another figure from Jazwares' Fortnite: Legendary Series line and this time it's Drift. Drift has apparently been around as a costume since 2018 and, like Omega: Max Level and Ragnarok: Max Level, Drift is a "skin" with different levels. Unlike those figures, though, Drift doesn't come with the parts to showcase multiple different levels, although you can get different looks for the figure. Let's check out Drift after the break and see why he's one of the best figures from the newest series of figures...

Action Figure Review: Fishstick from Fortnite: Legendary Series by Jazwares


    There was a recent drop of Fortnite: Legendary Series figures from Jazwares and now Fishstick has entered the fray! I love this line (in spite of the terrible hand design) and the crazy characters Jazwares picks from the Fortnite universe. Fishstick is costume is extremely popular, even though Kanye doesn't seem to understand him. Does he drink Bailey's out of a shoe, you might wonder? He's some sort of humanoid koi and is available as part of the Fish Food set. Considering these characters don't really have backstories or anything, nor do I play the game and have any idea about their in-game use or play style, I'm just going to jump in and start the review. Cast your rod and get ready for a half man/ half fish after the break...

Trap Jaw-ly: Trap Jaw #487 from POP! Television: Masters of the Universe by Funko

    Today is the last day of Trap Jaw-ly and for my last review I'm checking out the Funko POP! Trap Jaw. Trap Jaw was released in May 2017 as a Funko Specialty Series release alongside of an FYE Exclusive comic colors Trap Jaw. Something interesting about this guy is that the standard Trap Jaw I'm checking out today is actually harder to come by then the store exclusive release. That's a bit unusual, right? I've really enjoyed looking at some Trap Jaw stuff this month and I hope you've enjoyed it, too. Trap Jaw is a great character with one of the coolest gimmicks in Masters of the Universe. Let's check out this POP! version of the this Evil Warriors who's armed for combat...

Action Figure Review: Prince Adam #992 from POP! Television: Masters of the Universe by Funko

   Funko has put out a ton of Masters of the Universe POP! vinyls out lately, haven't they? Today I'm checking out the last standard figure from the most recent series of regular releases: Prince Adam! The colors of Adam's outfit definitely show that he's based on the Filmaton animated series "He-Man and the Masters of the Universe" versions of the character who I have no shame in admitting is one of my favorites. I love Prince Adam and Cringer's overall goodness and silliness. I'd gladly wear an outfit like this all day every day if it meant I could hang around with Cringer, swapping witty banter. I'm allergic to cats in real life, though, so would I be allergic to Cringer? I would hope not! Let's take a look at Prince Adam, the recipient of Fabulous Secret Powers, after the break...

Action Figure Review: Eternal Voyager from Fortnite: Legendary Series by Jazwares

 
    It's been nearly four months since I last reviewed a figure from Jazwares' Fortnite: Legendary Series but a few new releases have appeared lately, so expect to see some new reviews in the coming days. Today I'm checking out the Eternal Voyager, an intergalactic space explorer who appeared in Fortnite season 10. There are a few different color schemes for this guy but Jazwares went with an amazing black and electric blue design for this guy that is just absolutely amazing! I love the look of this guy! Unfortunately, he really suffers from probably the main problem of this line: Poorly functioning hinged hands. Jazwares has used the hinged hands on these guys since the beginning of the line and their ability to hold accessories has definitely been a bit inconsistent. Sadly, Eternal Voyager's hands are very, very loose. "Butterfingers" Voyager might have been a more apt nickname for him. Let's check him out after the break...

Trap Jaw-ly: Trap Jaw from Masters of the Universe Classics by Mattel


   Trap Jaw-ly may be coming to a close soon but I'm still going to try to roll out a few more Trap Jaw reviews for you fine folks!  Today I'm returning to the greatest Masters of the Universe line of all time with a review of Trap Jaw from Mattel's Masters of the Universe Classics! I didn't start reviewing MOTUC figures until 2013 so I've been slowly filling in the gaps between 2008 and 2013. Trap Jaw was released in February 2010 as the standard monthly Club Eternia figure and his day of sale lasted 19 minutes which, up to that point, was the fastest sell out time for any MOTUC figure (he was released on the same day as Battle Cat and the Grayskull themed Battle Stands). Many of the early MOTUC figures came with multiple heads to give the figures different looks and Trap Jaw was no exception. One of the coolest things about this guy is that besides being a stellar homage to the vintage toy, he came with additional parts to turn him into Kronis, his pre-Trap Jaw self from the Icons of Evil comic from 2004. I think many MOTU fans would put the MOTUC Trap Jaw up there as one of the best figures ever released in the line, so let's take a look at this fan favorite after the break...

Trap Jaw-ly! Trap Jaw ("GID Edition") from Masters of the Universe Acton Vinyls by The Loyal Subjects

    I've reviewed quite a few of the Masters of the Universe Action Vinyls from The Loyal Subjects but everything I've reviewed has been from the second series which feature a revised body design. Today I'm offering up both another review of Trap Jaw for Trap Jaw-ly and a look at one of the first series MOTU Action Vinyls. I have a couple Trap Jaw Acton Vinyls but today I decided to check out the 2016 The Loyal Subjects Web Exclusive Trap Jaw "GID Edition" figure. GID stands for glow in the dark, so this is a glow in the dark version of the deadly Evil Warrior with a cybernetic arm and jaw. This guy was part of a limited run of 750 and I purchased him from The Loyal Subjects' website during a Black Friday sale. Ready to check him out? Then let's get chompin' after the break...
