Action Figure Review: Modulok A from Masters of the Universe ReAction by Super7

    Wow! It's been almost a month since I reviewed Super7's Modulok B! I've just been busy and reviewing lots of stuff, so it's taking me a while to take a look at all of these. Want to know something else crazy? Now Super7 has a Modulok D out! It was first offered at PowerCon 2019 but is now available online, too. Is there a Modulok C? Who knows? Today I'm checking out Modulok A, though, which is the closest figure to the standard Filmation look for Modulok. He's really the same figure as Modulok B, just with a different head, so this is going to be one of my lazy reviews where I just cover the new stuff. Sound good? Then join me after the break...

 The Facts:

Height: 3 3/4ths inches

Articulation: Swivel hips, swivel shoulders, and a swivel head.

Accessories: None

Non-Scalper Price: $15 dollars

* On the left is Modulok A while Modulok B is on the right. From the neck down these two guys are exactly the same. The heads are what differentiates the two figures. Since there are so few differences between the two figures, you may want to refer back to the Modulok B review for the full scoop. Gosh, we sure are getting a lot of Modulok figures this year, aren't we?
 The Positives:

* Modulok's body is definitely based off of the Filmation depiction of the character, although it's still fairly different from the waist down. Modulok is a colorful character, though, and definitely reminds me of the vintage Kenner Cantina crew from Star Wars. The paint work is clean, there is some decent sculpted detail, and he's a bright red monster. Just like eating pizza rolls and drinking Ghoul-Aid while watching Big Trouble in Little China, everything here goes together amazingly well!

* I like this headsculpt better than the Modulok B headsculpt. It looks a bit more sinister. Yeah, it's not as detailed or a s complex, but the eyes and the sharp fangs really work here.

 *   If you've ever picked up a retro figure like this, you know what to expect: 5 points of articulation and all swivel joints. Modulok feels very well made and sturdy.  Super7 has been very consistent in the quality of their ReAction lines over the past couple of years and has definitely perfected the style. 

* The card art on most ReAction figures released by Super7 is beautiful and their Masters of the Universe line is no exception. Modulok features an awesome illustration from Jason Edmiston of the character with a new Fright Zone background.  I like how the Evil Horde got their own unique backers. To preserve the card I actually made a slit in the top of the blister so I can slide the figure in and out. It work great and allows the figure to be displayed inside and outside of the card. I've got mine hanging on a metal pegboard similar to what you'd see in a retail store!
Like with Modulok B, Modulok A is a Good figure. He has never been one of my absolute favorites and while he's a decent figure, this design kind of robs the figure of everything that makes him unique. He's kind of generic feeling and sadly doesn't even come with an accessory. Why not include the black laser rifle from the vintage figure? The figure is well made but he's not fully accurate to the Filmation design nor is he accurate to the vintage toy. He kind of misses both targets. I'm really hoping that Modulok D turns out excellent, as that's the Modulok I really want. Mine's on the way, so hopefully I'll be able to review him soon!
