* I've always liked the styles of these figures. The detail is pretty sharp on them despite their small size and they have a beefy, chunky style that is both comical yet fitting for Masters of the Universe. Buzz-Off looks fantastic! That paintwork on his yellow and brown stripes is extremely clean and he's covered in detail showing off the armored texture of his Adreenid exoskeleton. He's also rocking the claw hands, just like the vintage toy.
* Buzz-Off's ball jointed head looks just like him. His eyes are so bizarre but they look fantastic, as do his little vampire-like teeth. Do bees have teeth? Maybe not but Adreenids sure do.
* Most of these little guys have four points of articulation which may not seem like a lot except you gotta consider they're only a little over 2 inches tall. That's not bad for that scale! They're very durable little figures and would probably fit in well with lines like Imaginext and the Hasbro Heroes figures, so if you have a little one who's into MOTU these could be some decent starter toys. They're fun to play with and have a lot of shelf presence!
* Check out Buzz-Off's wings! They're translucent and awesome! I love the little details on them. While I assume they're organic they have a very technological look to them.
* Buzz-Off comes toting a cool battle ax that is a little bit of an upgrade from the vintage toy. It's molded all in light brown with a few details on the head and Buzz-Off can hold it securely in either of his hands.
* Furthermore, the Castle Grayskull container functions as a really cool display stand. There are two pegs on top that plug into the figure's feet. When you connect a row of these together you can have a long display stand for multiple figures.
* Buzz-Off has some messy flacks on yellow paint on the top of his head. What's that about? Bee dandruff, maybe.
I know I'm just starting the reviews of this series (and, crazy as it may sound, the second series of these figures has already been popping up at stores) but I'm kind of thinking Buzz-Off might be the figure to beat. He's an Epic minifigure. Buzz-Off's design translated quite well to this style of figure and his color scheme and translucent yellow wings really make him stand out in the collection. Buzz-Off is usually a safe bet for inclusion in a MOTU line (though The Loyal Subjects never got around to him) and it's nice to see him as part of the first line-up of these Eternian Minis.
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, the Funko POP! Buzz-Off, Super7's neo-vintage Buzz-Off, and the 200x styled Buzz-Off head from the Heads of Eternia pack.
Love those little Castle Greyskull cases. Bought one the other day at Walmart just to see what it was.ReplyDelete
