Whiplash - MOTU

Whiplash was one of the most unique characters in the early days of the vintage Masters of the Universe line. He had a great rubber tail. This made him one of the easiest figures to stand up. It also provided him with a weapon, even though he came with a spear. Later Rattlor would have a similar tail and King Randor would come with the same spear.


He shares most of his body with Buzz-Off, kind of funny that the parts work for a lizard and an insect at the same time. He has bushy black eyebrows, sort of like Clawful. Whiplash was a powerful fighter in both the Filmation and MYP 200x cartoon. He wasn't always the brightest though.

  1. I recently picked up a vintage Whiplash a few months ago at a convention. He's got a nice vintage action figure. As for his 200X version, that whiplash is easily one of my favorite MOTU action figures of all time! The sculpting on that toy is amazing.

    1. Yes, the 200x version is awesome. Mine is missing the tail but still looks great in a crowd villains on my shelf.

    1. It's the fan name for the Masters of the Universe toyline that ran from 2002-2007. The toy line had the exact same name as the vintage figures. It's like how Star Wars fans call the 90's Power of the Force Figures PotF2 because they share a name with another line. 200x goes along with the Mike Young Productions Cartoon. The show and toys were more anime inspired (and He-Man has a mechanical/electronic power sword). The Four Horseman sculpted these figures and are the guys doing the current Masters of the Universe Classics (MOTUC) line.

  4. Ok got it. I am a fan of the newer toys for sure. I want a Whiplash from the 200x set to act as a monster to fight Thor.
