Eternia Palace King Randor Review

Posted on: November 30, 2012
MOTUC

From the imaginations of the Filmation artists and the skilled hands of the Four Horsemen designers, Toy-Lines presents to you our  review of Eternia Palace King Randor.

 

Randor comes in the standard MOTUC card

His card also features a brand new bio of how he became the new ruler of Eternia.  Accepting the       title of King from his father Miro.

 

Randor comes with a new tooled coat and new boots.  He has the same standard male buck as the other Masters figures but with new puffy arms to match his coat.

 

The paint shows off his royal colors and his head has a brighter crown than his first released “vintage” figure.  There is no black paint or any noticeable rubbing when posing him or moving him around.  You can even use his powerful “Right Hook” to punch out his enemies.  Not much shadowing on this figure as all of his coloring is bright.  His joints are tight and stands well on his own.

 

Randor comes with two accessories, his chalice which he could use to celebrate and a

spear which he uses to defend his throne.  However if he needed to join the Heroic Warriors I would just use his vintage armor for more action oriented scenes.  The articulation is standard for MOTUC figures and his garb underneath the coat limits his leg movement.  However if you are brave enough you could always just cut the slits and he should have a wider range of movement.

 

I have been waiting for years and years since I first saw him in the Filmation series; to me this is the defining King Randor.  I highly recommend purchasing this figure especially if you are a fan of the Filmation series.

This figure is the special treat that comes with collecting Masters of the Universe Classics, they incorporate everything from He-man’s legacy.  A special thank you to Scott “Toy Guru” Neitlich and the Four Horsemen for making this figure a reality.  The wait for some of these figures is over but I think there will be more surprises in the future for Masters of the Universe Classics.

 

You can purchase Eternos Palace King Randor from Matty Collector.

Red Predator from NECA

Based on the Predator from the Fan-Film Batman: Dead End come the 7″ Red Predator from NECA.

The Figure comes with interchangeable hands and two Katana Swords.

Batman: Dead End was a surprisingly well directed fan movie with a small budget depicting Batman against the Joker and the Red Predator.

You could probably find the movie at most conventions.

BROCK SAMPSON Review

Posted on: November 10, 2012

The Venture Brothers from Cartoon Networks’ Adult Swim programming is the funniest cartoon show on the network.  A twisted take on old adventure cartoons such as Johnny Quest and Scooby-Doo with a dash of Superhero antics.  The show centers on the cloned offspring of a washed up boy adventurer as they go on adventures while trying to live in the real world.

Since its beginning fans of the show have been begging for action figures of this hilarious series.  Bif, Bang, Pow tried the “Mego” way by making cloth action figure dolls but low sales have slowed down that line.  Demand however was still high for action figures and so Bif, Bang, Pow answered the fans and created a 3 3/4 inch figure line.  Brock Sampson is their first offering.

Brock Blister

 Brock comes in a standard Blister card featuring the Venture Brothers themselves on the front.  I like the background artwork of Venture Industries where the show takes place.

I will say that as far as the packaging goes, they should have more information about the line.  Perhaps showing upcoming figures from the line.

The sculpt of the figure is a decent interpretation coming from the tv screen.

 With the Huge Chest and small legs you can get an animation feel from this figure.

 The colors are solid which is respectable and does not give the figure a cartoony look.


The articulation is not surprising from a figure this size and your options of posing are limited.  Brock comes with his signature weapon his hunting knife and you could get into some action poses.  His hands a sculpted to hold the knife and you should not have any problems with him holding it.  His waist and head are also articulated so he can look around.  His legs are articulated enough for him to sit down.

Overall this is a great figure and a compliment to the Venture Bros. Series.  At $10.00 per figure sounds fair for figures that will not take up too much space on your self.  Hopefully fans will grab this figure and they will be able to make more as the list of unique characters will not end.  As far as playability, you can come up with some decent poses and the figure will not take up much space.  You could create your own adventure poses for your shelf and with other figures you could recreate your favorite scenes.

You can purchase this figure and more in the series from Entertainment Earth.

There was also a Comic-Con Variant that was available from Entertainment Earth.  Its basically the same figure with a white t-shirt with blood splattered on the shirt and hands.
