Standor - MOTUC

Standor may be the Masters of the Universe Classics (MOTUC) figure that makes the least sense. Here the creator of the majority of the Marvel Universe is turned into a "God" in the Masters Universe. Why? Well Mattel was partnering with Stan Lee for something and so some extra budget got put out to make an exclusive figure for Stan Lee's own convention. It didn't make a lot of sense then and it still doesn't now. I mainly got him because I have 98% of the MOTUC line.

 So they tooled up a new head, glasses, a mask, and some armor. Mattel has told us before that to get an entire figure out of just tooling a head, armor, and accessories was pretty do-able. That was sort of the guidelines for the 30th Anniversary Create-A-Figure Contest.

I assume the Four Horsemen sculpted ol' Stan's head, but I'm not 100% sure on that. Either way it looks great... but it's powder blue. I do think it's funny that his armor looks similar to the Marvel character Galactus.

 Standor's Armor and Mask is made of a cool smoked clear plastic with glitter flakes in it.
 Very cosmic.
