Reflecting On Strobo: A First Look At The 2013 MOTU Traveling Con Exclusive

strobo-featAs in years past, Mattel is offering a “Traveling” convention exclusive Masters of the Universe figure in 2013– cosmic enforcer Strobo.  However, they tried something new this year, offering a (very) limited number of Strobo figures to Early Access Club Eternia subscribers… months before he makes his Con debut. His lightning-fast sellout has caused an uproar over the past few weeks, but is he worth getting up in arms about? Let’s examine closer.

Merry Christmas From Frosta

This just in from Mattycollector: Apparently the mea culpa consolation present for Frosta’s reverse forearms (Not the hair, gray color, mechanical non-functioning wand, or unpainted back, SILLY) is in the form of a free figure. Lots to speculate right now!

Frosta Is Left Out In The Cold

October provided MOTUC fans with three new additions to the ranks, and a fantastic new array of weapons from the Great Unrest weapons pack. Princess of Power fans will have a heavy hitter joining the Great Rebellion with Ice Empress Frosta. Between her and new additions to the ranks of the Horde and the Snake Men, it seemed like October would be a surefire win… until Mattel Design’s Ruben Martinez got his hands on them. There were constraints placed upon Mattel to stretch resources to cost out three $20 action figures, and logistically, they failed on all fronts, most dramatically with Frosta.

Temple of Darkness Sorceress is Mattel’s Power Con/ New York Comic Con exclusive for 2012, and while she may be seen as a straight-up Sorceress repaint, there are a couple of changes that fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on how much you love the original) improve on the first Sorceress.  She loses her bird form and perch, but she does come with an impressive new podium for King Grayskull’s Orb of Power. This alone moves the toy beyond a mere redeco and definitely merits a purchase. Please read on as to why.
