Old School MOTU: Beast Man (Ghost) from Masters of the Universe ReAction by Super7

   Ready for another Masters of the Universe ReAction Beast Man review? Well, this one is of the chase variants from the Snake Mountain blind boxed series, so he was only packed 1 per case and he features a funky color scheme that is referred to as Beast Man (Ghost). Yes! Ghost! I really like the bizarre color schemes Super7 has chosen for some of these variants and I recently picked up a lot of a few of these figures, so I've got at least one more review of a uniquely colored Super7 ReAction variant coming soon. Right now, though, we're checking out this spooky, ghostly Beast Man! Ooooh!! Let's check him out after the break...if you dare!

 The Facts:

Height: 3 3/4ths inches

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

Accessories: Whip

Year of Release: 2019

Original Retail Price: $10 dollars

 The Positives:

* This is the same Beast Man sculpt as every other Beast Man in the ReAction line, so there really shouldn't be any surprises here except for his new translucent orange color scheme. I love it. It's very, very cool and definitely makes this guy stand out. Why is Beast Man a ghost? Who knows? Who cares? Maybe Skeletor finally had enough of his shenanigans and finally let the old fleabag have it? Or maybe He-Man threw him in the Castle Grayskull moat and he landed wrong? That's as equally likely.

 *  If you've ever picked up a retro figure like this, you know what to expect: 5 points of articulation, all swivel joints. Beastman 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. 

* Every Beast Man figure has come with his whip and while the whip is smaller than the vintage accessory, it feels exactly the same: A plastic handle with a small black cord. He can hold it in either hand (he can either grip the small hand guard or slide his left hand through the hand guard) and it definitely completes the figure perfectly. 

 He's not the most exciting of the variants in the blind boxed series of MOTU ReAction figures but I still like Ghost Beast Man. He's quite cool and a fun figure to stand around with some of the other unusual variants. I still am not a fan of the blind box concept (especially for $10 toys) but at this point you should be able to easily find what you want from folks who bought cases and are piecing these out. I've got another odd variant ready to show off soon, but who could it be?

If you dig Beast Man, I've reviewed the Super 7 M.O.T.U.S.C.L.E. series 1 version and the Series 2 green version, as well as the MOTUC Beast Man and Beast Man (Blood- Red Henchman) figures, Mattel's Club Grayskull Beast Man, the 200x minifigure Beast Man from the Heroes Vs. Villains Gift pack, the Mega Construx Beast Man from the Battle for Eternia set, the red Beast Man from Castle Grayskull, and He-Man VS Beast Man pack, the Monogram International Beast Man bag clip, Funko's Pint Size Heroes Beast Man, the Super7 Beast Man, the Japanese Vinyl Beast Man (Green), the ReAction Beast Man (Cartoon Colors), Beast Man with Weapons Pack and Beast Man (Leo), and the VYNL Beast Man.
