Video Review > Rattlor (Masters of the Universe Classics, Mattel)

Poe’s Note: That’s right, at long last I’ve caved in to the fact that video reviews are the wave of the future. It’s where the money is, yo. And so to commemorate PGPoA’s first official foray into the world of video reviews, I’ve enlisted Doc Thomas to review one of the MOTUC figures I’ve yet […]
