Yes! It's time for Filmation Skeletor! This is one of my favorite Masters of the Universe Classics figures so far. He's so spot on to the cartoon. I love 'em. The Four Horsemen did such an awesome job sculpting his head. Check out my review below.

Playtime Masters - He-Man Doumentary

When I first heard about Playtime Masters it was a passion project that was going to tell the story of the impact He-Man had on the fans in the 80's. I was very excited and talked with the people creating it. I was interviews and submitted many photographs and other items for possible inclusion in the film. I guess life gets in the way and I started to hear less and less about the project.

Then another similar project surfaced and I got a little nervous about these competing fan projects. Suddenly Playtime Masters came back as Crowd Funding project. Check out the little trailer that's been put together. There are 4 different photos of myself in the trailer. If you like this kind of project and want to support it great. If not, I'm just trying to help the filmmakers dreams come true by spreading the word.

King Zarkon - Voltron

After watching the new Netflix Voltron series I got thinking about this King Zarkon figure I picked up at a toy show not to long ago. As a kid I had a really nice die-cast Voltron and Hunk from the Panosh Place toy line. I've been slowly picking up the other figures from that line including the Pilots and a few bag guys. I'd really like the get the Castle of Lions some day.

King Zarkon is a pretty basic figure. He's very similar to the Emperor from the vintage Star Wars line. He has a swivel at the neck and both shoulders. Zarkon can bend at the waist and each of his legs are molded to look like half his robe.

Zarkon is a decent figure for the early 80's but by today's standards his sculpt is really lacking in details. He does have pretty decent paint applications with the details on his torso.

R/C Skateboarding Mikey - TMNT Jakks Pacific

Today we're taking a look at the new Remote Control Skateboarding Mikey from Jakks Pacific. This is a large figure attached to a R/C skateboard. You can make him go forward or pivot on the skateboard. As he pivots, Mikey causes the skateboard to turn. It's really well designed because he can even set the skateboard back up on the wheels after he wipes out. The remote control plays sounds and voice clips of Michelangelo from the Nickelodeon show. (Special thanks to Jakks Pacific for providing us with the review sample)
