Ultimate He-Man: Skeletor! Based on his appearance in the Filmation cartoon He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, this new Ultimate Skeletor utilizes the simpler, less detailed style of the He-Man and the Masters of the Universe/ Club Grayskull toyline. Mattel originally released their Filmation Skeletor back in 2016 but that figure (along with a few others in the series) has gotten to be insanely expensive. Fortunately, Super7 is giving fans another chance to pick up He-Man and Skeletor. It's a smart move which probably will help longer term sales of Super7's Club Grayskull toys as well; no new collectors who just discover the line are going to be picking anything up if they can't easily get Skeletor or He-Man. Let's check out the gloriously evil Skeletor, one of the greatest cartoon villains of all time, after the break...

Action Figure Review: Shedusa from The Worst by Super7
my last review of a figure from series 2 of Super7's The Worst but today I'm back with a look at another villain from this series: Shedusa! Offering up a new take on a Medusa styled figure, Shedusa is an interesting figure. She seems a lot more colorful than most other figures in the line and actually has a regular human face unlike any other member of The Worst. Ready for a quick look at this slithery archer? Then join me after the break...

Action Figure Review: Batman (Black and Grey) from DC Primal Age by Funko
Batcave playset setting on store shelves was a major improvement for the line. While series 2 is just starting to show up, Target has one more surprise in store: An exclusive black and grey Batman. This is exactly the same figure as the standard release Batman except that he's in a darker color scheme this time. To be honest, I really never need much coaxing to buy another Batman figure, so Target had me sold on this one from day one. This guy has been showing up in stores over the past 2-3 weeks and usually seems to be found in the regular toy aisle along with the rest of the (very limited) Mattel DC offerings. When is a repaint more than a repaint? Let's find out after the break...

Action Figure Review: Parabones from Super Mario from Jakks Pacific
they were pretty creepy back in the day). This version features removable wings and thus qualifies as the Parabones which first appeared in Super Mario 3D World. It's design is definitely based on the look of the baddies in newer games which definitely fits with the overall aesthetic of the line. Let's check out the Parabones after the break...

Action Figure Review: Mario with Super Star from Super Mario by Jakks Pacific
1-1 Mario and the 2-4 Mario. I was really hoping for a new Mario to kick off the new series, but that's not what we got. Let's take a quick look after the break...

Action Figure Review: Red Tiger from The Worst by Super7
man-eating tiger, Red Tiger adds a bit more savagery to the villainous ranks of The Worst! Initially I wasn't thinking that Bronze Tiger would be one of my favorites from the series but having him in hand I really like him. He's crazy, over the top, and a true bad guy if you've ever seen one. He does bear an uncanny likeness to Bronze Tiger, though Bronze Tiger is by no means an actual tiger nor does he eat people. Let's check out Red Tiger, a humanoid tiger who does eat people, after the break...

Action Figure Review: Scarecrow from DC Primal Age by Funko
Skeletor and Scareglow while also bringing his own unique and terrifying charm. I'm always down for a Scarecrow figure as he is one of the Batman villains who often gets a very unique makeover whenever he shows up in a new toyline. Let's check out the DC Primal Age Scarecrow after the break!

Action Figure Review: Bizarro from DC Comics Multiverse by Mattel
OK, sorry, I can't keep that up that long! Yes, this is the DC Comics Multiverse Bizarro that is exclusive to Walgreens. I found it a week or so ago on a quick trip there while picking up some Chinese food next door and boy did it pay off! New DC Comics Multiverse figures have been hard to come by and Bizarro has been what I've really been looking for. He's a great classic version of the character and it's been well over a decade since Mattel last gave him a new sculpt (although his last repack release was in the MOTUC vs DCUC Faker vs.Bizarro set). This guy came at a great time as just a few weeks ago my daughter brought home one of the kids DC storybooks from school and it was a Superman and Bizarro story, so she's been really interested in Bizarro lately. This one was a hit! Let's check him our after the break...

Action Figure Review: King Shark from DC Primal Age by Funko
DC Primal Age toyline and today I'm checking out another one of the series' villains: King Shark. King Shark is a pretty cool addition to the line and provides a nice counterpart to Aquaman in the line. While DC Primal Age has the usual complement of Batman foes and A-list DC villains like Bizarro and Lex Luthor (coming in series 2), King Shark is a nice lower tier villain to add some flavor to the line. A giant, savage shark man fits in perfectly with the barbarian fantasy aesthetic of the line, doesn't it? Let's check this guy out after the break...
