as an SDCC 2018 exclusive alongside of She-Ra. I don't own that set so this was a welcome release for me. So far as I can tell, the figures are exactly the same with the packaging being the only difference. Let's check out this Filmation inspired Hordak after the break...
Height: 3 7/8ths inches
Articulation: Swivel hips, swivel shoulders, and a swivel head.
Accessories: Two removable arms, interchangeable cannon arm.
Non-Scalper Price: $15 dollars
* While Hordak is a rerelease of the SDCC 2018 2-pack figure, he's also a paint variant of the recently released Hordak (Grey) figure, which was based off of the Malaysian release of the vintage Hordak toy. The paint and the absence of a cape are the only differences between this release and the previous one, so check that review out. This review's going to be a bit shorter since there isn't as much new to say here.
* Hordak's sculpt is very much a blend between the vintage toy and the Filmation design of the character, so it kind of works no mater how you paint it. Hordak is wearing his blue Filmation outfit here and he looks fantastic. The paintwork is neat and clean. Besides his outfit, the other major difference is that Hordak's head is white rather than a more subdued bone color, and it features the ridge across his head painted blue.
* If you've ever picked up a retro figure like this, you know what to
expect: 5 points of articulation and all swivel joints.Hordak feels
well made and sturdy and definitely of a better quality than some of the
earlier ReAction figures that Funko put out. Super7 has been very
consistent in the quality of their ReAction lines over the past couple of years and has perfected the style.
* The card art on most ReAction figures released by Super7 is beautiful
and their Masters of the Universe line is no exception. Hordak
features an awesome illustration from Jason Edmiston of the character with a new Fright Zone background. I like how the Evil Horde got their own unique backers. To
preserve the card I actually made a slit in the top of the blister so I
can slide the figure in and out. It work great and allows the figure to
be displayed inside and outside of the card. I've got mine hanging on a
metal pegboard similar to what you'd see in a retail store!
* Hordak comes with a cannon arm that can be swapped out with either his
left or right arm. Both arms pull out easily (they simply slide in and out) and either can
take the cannon arm. It's not overly detailed but it's clearly a cannon and it fits the style of the line.
If you're a fan of Hordak then check out my reviews of the Masters of the Universe Classics "Buzz Saw" Hordak and the Spirit of Hordak and the ReAction Hordak (Grey).
