I, like so many others, missed out on the vintage styled King Randor in Masters of the Universe Classics that came out at the end of 2022. Fortunately, Mattel is doing another run of a few of the more difficult to find figures, and Randor is one of them. They have been sprinkling in some variants inspired by the 200x toyine and the Mike Young Productions animated series into the line over the past year or two and King Randor is the latest figure to get a 200x inspired variant. While Randor did get a NECA Staction, he didn't make it into the standard 200x toyine nor did he ever get a 200x inspired Masters of the Universe Classics figure. He finally gets one now, though, so aren't you glad this style is no longer retired? Let's take a look at King Randor after the break and see if it's as good to be the king as they say...

* I'm pretty impressed by King Randor; this guy really has a very unique look from the vintage styled King Randor. Besides having three separate pieces for his outfit (a cape, chest armor, and a belt/ waist piece), he's also covered with cool little details like a cybernetic right leg and a more technical looking vambrade on his left arm. The colors are really nice with lots of gold and some excellent detail on the armored bits.
* This 200x inspired Randor has a different headsculpt than the vintage inspired Randor, and it's pretty cool. He looks younger here, with fabulous hair and a mighty impressive beard. Also, check out the crown peaking out from under his hair. This is a solid portrait for sure.
* Here's a close-up shot of Randor's removable waist armor and the techy vambrace on his left wrist.
* Randor's sporting an old war injury as evidenced by his cybernetically enhanced leg. The color of the leg is different (it's a darker blue than his other leg) and there's lots of detail showing the mechanical nature of the appendage.
* Randor's cape isn't attached to his armor; it's a separate piece that fits around his neck, giving him a more regal appearance.
* They're also modular and can be easily separated to make your own lazy boy customs!
* Randor doesn't come with the cool sword and shield he sometimes carried in the Mike Young Productions animated series but he does have a very impressive scepter. I'm sure he could still cause some damage if he smacked an Evil Warrior over the head with it.
* The included minicomic features a story where King Randor is being trained by Slamurai and forced to fend off an army of Snake Troopers led by Snake Teela. It's a fun story with excellent art.
