Iron Grenadiers) but also the star of John Carpenter's "They Live." Next up is Andre the Giant, an absolute legend, the first inductee into the WWE Hall of Fame, and one of the stars of The Princess Bride, and, lastly, the Macho Man Randy Savage, easily one of the best guys on the mic ever and the actor behind Bonesaw McGraw in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man. Let's check out this group of champions after the break...

Grand Moff Tarkin, Admiral Piett is easily the most quotable of the Imperial officers so enjoy having Piett opine on bounty hunters, talk about older codes, or simply respond to Darth Vader. There's no end to the fun you'll have with Admiral Piett! Let's check this one out after the break...

Night Stalker, who came out in October 2016. Although Stridor wasn't officially announced by Super7 until April of this past year I think we all knew he was coming. Night Stalker and Stridor are really and truly the same toy with different paint schemes. Super7 put Stridor on preorder from April to May and then delivered him over the summer. I just got picked mine up last week, however, and man, does he look nice! As Mattel was phasing out of MOTUC there were definitely a few purchases I held back on at the time but now I'm catching back up and gathering up some of the late Mattel and early Super7 releases I missed out on. Stridor was a huge want for me as I remember getting the original toy in the two-pack with Fisto for Easter (probably in 1987). Ready to check this updated version of Stridor out? Then join me after the break...

Minifigure Review: Million Dollar Man, Sgt. Slaughter, & "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan from M.U.S.C.L.E.: WWE by Super7
I reviewed one of the four sets from Super7's classic WWF themed M.U.S.C.L.E. figures (of course, they're legally still labeled WWE) and today I'm checking out another one. This set includes three more WWE Superstars: The Million Dollar Man Ted DiBiase, wrestling star and G.I. Joe team member Sgt. Slaughter, and "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan, the winner of the first ever Royal Rumble. While I'm disappointed that Super7 has gone the blind boxed Keshi Surprise route for the new She-Ra minis, I'm happy to say that the WWE M.U.S.C.L.E. figures are some of the best that Super7 has released. Let's check out this classic trio after the break...

Rokkon and Stonedar, the two Comet Warriors from the vintage MOTU line, and here we are a little over five years later finally completing the trio. Granita was apparently originally planned for the vintage MOTU toyline at one point but never made her way to toy shelves. She did, however, make two appearances in the Filmation She-Ra: Princess of Power series (The Rock People and The Light of the Crystal) and it's probably for that reason that she has long been one of the most requested figures. While Rokkon and Stonedar had vintage figures to base their MOTUC classics figures off of, Granita only had her Filmation appearance. She fits quite nicely into the MOTUC line (she is quite similar to Tim Bryski's proposal art) and completes the Comet Warriors faction, so that's a big plus. Unfortunately, she does have some problems that definitely seem to make her the least well received figure of series 2 of Super7's MOTUC. Let's check her out after the break...
