Action Figure Review: Buzz-Off #759 from POP! Television: Masters of the Universe by Funko
Height: 4 inches
Articulation: Swivel head
* The over-the-top proportions of the Masters of the Universe crew really make for some nice looking POP! vinyls. The MOTU crew are bulky, colorful, and full of attitude, a combination that blends oh so well with the POP! aesthetic. While the series lists this as being a TV based POP! I think it looks far more like the vintage toy of Buzz-Off.
* Buzz-Off has a great face, doesn't he? He's kind of a weird looking bee guy who seems friendly enough. Those eyes are pretty awesome and make it tough to read his expression. Does Buzz-Off want to sting you or give you a high five? Interestingly, his eyes are very un-POP! That works here, though, as the large metallic eyes are a huge part of the character's look.
* The translucent wings look fantastic! They have a lot of detail sculpted into them and they definitely remind me of the wings on the toy.
* Buzz-Off is wielding his trusty ax, the same as his vintage action figure. The ax was a color variant of the ax from the Castle Grayskull weapons rack (cast in brown instead of tan) and it looks pretty faithful to the vintage toy here.
* I love the little details here such as Buzz-Off's feet, his standard furry trunks, and hos bee-stripd armor.
* The little stripes on Buzz-Off's head have some sloppy paint on the ends. It might look slight here but in person it is a bit more noticeable, oddly enough.
If you're looking for more Buzz-Off items, check out the following: The M.U.S.C.L.E. green Buzz-Off and series 1 Buzz-Off and the 200x styled Buzz-Off head from the Heads of Eternia pack.
