Thoughts On Mattel’s MOTU Reveals At Power-Con 2013

power-con-featPower-Con came and went with all of my childhood favorites contained in one building.

A new segment of the MOTU family was introduced, a long-awaited fan-favorite reared her evil head, and King Grayskull finally has his steed!

Castaspella Is The Best Princess Of Power Ever

castaspella-featCastaspella is the August Masters of the Universe Classics Club Eternia entrant, and the second Princess of Power figure for 2013. It seems as though with every PoP release, there is some outcry or controversy over their execution. This time, however, no matter what fault one can find with her, it ultimately cannot detract from the fact that she is the best executed and strongest Princess of Power figure to date.

The Horde Gets a New Member, Octavia

octavia-feat

One thing our June figure Octavia has over the other prior releases this year is the sheer amount of accessories she packs. She feels like a $25 figure (and even a $27 figure) for day of sale purchasers. I have always been a fan of action figures that come with a lot of accessories, including four swords four tentacles, and a crossbow. As a female figure of a Horde enemy that never saw a toy, as well as the fantastic design by the Four Horsemen, she is an action figure that should appeal to hardcore collectors and casual fans alike. The question is whether or not she is greater than the sum of her parts. The answer is yes and no.
