originally available in a 2-pack at SDCC 2018 with Hordak. I never had that set, though, so She-Ra is all new to me! Let's check her out after the break...

Super7's Modulok B! I've just been busy and reviewing lots of stuff, so it's taking me a while to take a look at all of these. Want to know something else crazy? Now Super7 has a Modulok D out! It was first offered at PowerCon 2019 but is now available online, too. Is there a Modulok C? Who knows? Today I'm checking out Modulok A, though, which is the closest figure to the standard Filmation look for Modulok. He's really the same figure as Modulok B, just with a different head, so this is going to be one of my lazy reviews where I just cover the new stuff. Sound good? Then join me after the break...

Battle Armor She-Ra and Swift Wind set from Mattel's She-Ra and the Princesses of Power line and today I'm reviewing the standard She-Ra figure. I've actually had these figures for a few weeks but I had to wait until after my daughter's birthday to pull them out. She got a set for her birthday (along with the sword and shield set), and guess what? I have a set of my own! Yeah, these totally are not my favorite Masters of the Universe figures of all time but, really, I'm just excited to see something Masters of the Universe related at mainstream retail in its own toyline. Like with the vintage She-Ra toyline, these dolls feel like a blend of the Netflix cartoon designs with a more traditional, doll influence. Like those vintage toys, they also utilize a mixture of plastic armored bits and fabric clothing to create a toy that's a mixture between an action figure and a fashion doll. I'm curious how fans overall will feel about these: Fans of the show may not like that the dolls have a very different visual style from the animation of the series, though folks who don't like the animation style may be able to appreciate some of the redesigns as they are rendered differently here. Let's take a look at She-Ra, who will always be the Princess of Power, after the break...

faster than Hasbro and Mattel, especially considering the figure has been out for a couple of months now. Let's check out the very cool Wild Card after the break...

Action Figure Review: Battle Armor She-Ra & Swift Wind from She-Ra and the Princesses of Power by Mattel
Friday, August 23, 2019
been about a month since I last reviewed a figure from Jazwares' excellent Fortnite: Legendary Series but I'm getting ready to go through a mini streak and review a couple more. Seriously, I should finish off this series soon. I really like these! 2019 has been the year of surprising video game figure releases from games I just don't play and Jazwares has really put out some great product with this line. The Visitor is probably my favorite figure from this series as not only does he have an incredible look but his accessories make him insanely fun to play with. I've heard folks mention that he may be intended to be a tribute to Boba Fett and Jango Fett but I tend to think he looks more like a blue version of Bane Malar or the Guavian Enforcer. Seriously, though, even if you're not a Fortnite fan this guy would make a pretty good random bounty hunter to hang out with the Star Wars: The Black Series crew. The Visitor outfit is a Legendary outfit from Season 4 of Fortnite and that's about all there is to it so far as I know. You can make up anything you want about this guy, though. Let's check him out after the break...

are available individually in their standard looks. Since the Overwatch Ultimates line uses new sculpts for each character, Hasbro is definitely going to be using repaints to help balance costs. So far I've been a fan of all the repaints shown and this one is very, very cool. Let's check out Tracer and McCree in their white outfits after the break...

Luke Skywalker (X-Wing Pilot) and Yoda, Hasbro has improved the figures with the new face printing technology. Anakin was the first figure that appealed to me from the Archive series because even though I have the original release, he's one of the few Black Series releases with an alternate portrait. Considering he comes with two improved portraits, I figured he was worth a second purchase. Let's see what the new and improved portraits look like after the break...

Action Figure Review: Sorceress (Pink) from Masters of the Universe Action Vinyls from The Loyal Subjects
whose look changed drastically throughout the early years of MOTU, so it's interesting to have different variations of her. The Loyal Subjects seems to love the minicomic variants, so let's check out this somewhat rare variant of the Sorceress after the break...

toyline from McFarlane toys, and even went so far as to make my own Metal Gear movies with friends. Anyways, Genji reminds me a lot of Ninja/ Gray Fox from Metal Gear Solid and that makes me happy. I seriously want to love this guy but the figure has some issues that make him weaker than he should be. Let's check Genji (Chrome) out after the break and see how he fares...

Masters of the Universe Classics figure. For series 2, The Loyal Subjects made some changes to the line including changing the base bodies up a bit and selling some of the figures in window boxes. It seems to me that around half of the figures in each case are sold in an open window box while half are sold in a blind box. It's an interesting way to approach a line that previously was fully blindboxed. Anyways, let's dive in and check out Mer-Man after the break...

non-exclusive counterpart. While this isn't the character's signature look this definitely is the stronger of the two figures. Let's check out Reinhardt (Bundeswehr) after the break...

"evil beast of a thousand bodies" when you think of Modulok, the Filmation cartoons made the character much simpler by giving him a standard, symmetrical body and only one head. This figure is actually labeled as Modulok B; while this head is indeed one of the two included with the vintage toy, Modulok didn't actually "wear" it on the Filmation series (although he did pick it up one time and show it off." Still, this must have seemed like an easy chance to reuse the mold for Modulok, so Super7 went with it. I really think swappable heads would have been a cool feature here but that's not how things played out. Let's check out Modulok after the break...
