Fuminoid and Junk Jackal come to mind) but I've already reviewed those so it's now Plutor's turn. Let's check out this menacing mechanical monstrosity after the break...
Year of Release: 1991
* Plutor is one of the evil Trashors and he looks like he means business! He moves around on treads and looks like he's loaded with some effective weaponry for battling the heroic Disposers. The metallic blue color scheme is awesome and is wonderfully complemented by reddish orange and neon yellow.
* Besides the skull Plutor has those lasers on the turret on his head and a missile launcher in place of his left hand. Well, I guess it's more accurate to say the robot's left hand is a missile launcher.
* The sculpt is pretty cool and the back of Plutor has lots of panels and such covering his inner workings. Maybe the secret to defeating him is going back behind here, opening the panels, and deactivating the menace.
* My childhood Plutor was able to split into two pieces. He stays together just fine so I always considered this a bonus.
Plutor is one of my childhood original Trash Bag Bunch figures and one of the best in the line. He's an Epic machine that's both very cool and very creepy. Are you a fan of this line? The original toys had the gimmick that they came in a trash bag you threw in the sink, bathtub, or toilet if that's how you rolled, which would cause the bag to bubble and disintegrate, revealing the figure inside. Last Resort Toys has brought the line back in deluxe form in recent years so if you're a fan there's still some Trash Bag Bunch goodness to be had these days!
