* On the left is the Leo Beast Man while on the right is the Beast Man with Weapons Pack release. They're both based on the standard Beast Man figure and there really isn't much difference between them other than the colors of the armor, which is indeed the biggest difference here. Check out that review for the full rundown of the sculpt and such.
* The Leo Toys Beast Man seems to have some variations involving the amount of blue on the neck armor, but the most desirable variants seem to be the figures with mostly blue armor. It's an interesting look that does differentiate the figure from the other releases. Whether or not it floats your boat or not depends on how much you like these obscure variants of the vintage MOTU crew.
* The card art on most ReAction figures released by Super7 is beautiful and their Masters of the Universe line is no exception. Beast Man features the same beautiful illustration from the standard figure, illustrated by Jason Edmiston, but now he's got the blue armor details. 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!
* The Leo Beast Man seems to have a red whip with a black handle. That would have been a cool detail to really complete thus guy, wouldn't it?
If you dig Beast Man, I've reviewed the Super 7 M.O.T.U.S.C.L.E. series 1 version and the Series 2 green version, as well as the MOTUC Beast Man (Blood- Red Henchman) figure, Mattel's Club Grayskull Beast Man, the 200x minifigure Beast Man from the Heroes Vs. Villains Gift pack, the Mega Construx Beast Man from the Battle for Eternia set and the red Beast Man from Castle Grayskull, the Super7 Beast Man, the ReAction Beast Man with Weapons Pack, and the VYNL Beast Man.
Love Super7s MOTU figures. Keep them coming.ReplyDelete
I've got a couple more in the pipe. I'll probably pick up the NYCC figures if I can get them too. Well, definitely Grizzlor and green armed Modulok.Delete
Looking forward to your Halloween Countdown! Fun start so far.ReplyDelete
Thanks, man! This year definitely is going to be high quality the whole way through!Delete
Oh I remember these! My favourite was maybe Skeletor, but I always found the snakes particularly scary. One was like a man who shed his human skin to reveal a snake.ReplyDelete
Hey Guillaume! So these figures are actually new. Like, released in the last month or two. They're intended to look like the vintage Masters of the Universe Figures but if Kenner had made them in the late 70s/ early 80s.Delete
And the guy you're referencing is King Hiss. I love that figure and wish they would tackle him in this line, too.
