Toy review roundup (via Fanmode)

fanmode-copy Michael Crawford reviews the Mattel Masters of the Universe Classics Mer-Man Mattycollector.com exclusive figure. Excerpt: “… my favorite of the series so far, and in hand, really impresses me with it’s quality and design … But in the end, it’s still tough to say it’s worth a whopping twenty bucks plus shipping.”

Poe Ghostal reviews the Mattel Masters of the Universe Classics Mer-Man Mattycollector.com exclusive figure. Excerpt: “… the great sculpt, excellent accessories and interchangeable head make him a must-buy.”

Nathan Newell reviews the Mattel Masters of the Universe Classics Mer-Man Mattycollector.com exclusive figure. Excerpt: “… another fantastic showing for The Four Horsemen and Mattel.”

YoNoSe reviews the Shocker Toys Indie Spotlight The Maxx figure. Excerpt: “As I stated in my intro, I am not familiar with the controversy surrounding Shocker Toys. Deserved or underserved, all I know is I have a great new Maxx figure out of it.”

Josh Bernard reviews the Shocker Toys Indie Spotlight ShadowHawk (variant) figure. Excerpt: “It’s a remarkably average action figure, with a few serious QC issues. But the fact that I am just floored that these things have finally seen the right of day makes me want to like them a little bit more.” (See also.)

yo go re reviews the Hasbro Spider-Man Tarantula figure. Excerpt: “It’s a classic Spider-Villain we needed a new version of … but it’s also a really oddball figure with some inexplicable problems.”

Corey Tincher reviews the Mattel DC Universe Classics The Flash figure. Excerpt: “There’s still something about this figure that’s hard not to love, and he’s quickly become one of my favorite DCUC releases so far.” (See also.)

Artemis reviews the Lego Bionicle Mistika 8690 Toa Onua set. Excerpt: “… Onua’s not that remarkable by himself, but the gun and shield combo really does lift him …”

Retro reviews

yo go re reviews the Hasbro Star Wars 30th Anniversary Collection Republic Elite Forces Mandalorians and Omega Squad Entertainment Earth exclusive set. Excerpt: “… it would have been preferable if you could get the important figures by themselves, but the set is still a decent offering.” (See also.)

Darren Cilenti reviews the Hasbro Transformers Cybertron Voyager class Leobreaker figure. Excerpt: “Both modes are awkward at best with poor poseability and underwhelming gimmicks.”

  • It was awesome when Fan Mode carried my reviews. Dunno why they don't anymore. I need to get back on the list. I reviewed Mer-Man a full week before most of these people did! GRR! 🙂
