Toy Review: Evil-Lyn from Masters of the Universe: Figural Bag Clips by Monogram International

   Over the next week or two I'm going to be checking out quite a few of the Masters of the Universe: Figural Bag Clips by Monogram International. I don't have a full set yet (I'm still missing Battle Armor He-Man, Battle Armor Skeletor, and Orko) but I have the rest. Today I'm checking out Evil-Lyn. Evil-Lyn almost always seems to be one of the first choices in any new MOTU product line now and this version is clearly based on her Filmation appearance. Let's check out another bag clip in this series after the break...

 The Facts:

Height: 2 3/4th inches

Articulation: None

Accessories: None

Non-Scalper Price: $7-8 dollars

 The Positives:

* I really like the look of these. They look like something from a cartoon strip version of Masters of the Universe that was targeted towards kids. Or Scribblenauts. They kind of look like the Scribblenauts characters, don't they? The details are "etched" into the rubbery figures and, for the most part, everything is neat and clean. They're not perfect but I do like them. Evil-Lyn looks kind of grumpy here, and she's definitely got some wicked looking eyebrows!

* Rather than having a metal key-ring, these have a plastic clip. They're marketed as bag clips, so I guess the intention is to display them on a backpack or satchel of sorts. I'm going to have to find a cool way to display them in my MOTU collection. Also, check out the cape on Evil-Lyn's back. Her outfit and her magic wand are all quite detailed.
      These little guys are fun. While they're blind bagged (with a cardboard sleeve around them to make it harder to tell who you're getting), which I don't like, they're definitely kind of unusual, too. I love seeing the fun, colorful MOTU crew in a variety of mediums and the Monogram International bag clips deliver for me. They're perhaps a bit pricey for what they are but I really do like them. Evil-Lyn has a lot of detail, although I'm not sure I like the frown on her. I mean, it makes sense, but it looks a bit off. Still, she's a Good and a 1/2 little collectible and a fun addition to the collection.

   If you're a fan of Evil-Lyn I've also reviewed the M.U.S.C.L.E. Evil-Lyn from the Masters of the Universe green boxed set, the ReAction Evil-Lyn, Super7's neo-vintage Evil-Lyn, and the Mega Construx Evil-Lyn and Mega Construx Heroes Evil-Lyn.
