MOTU Classics-Icarius

Icarius was also known as Flipshot in the New Adventures of He-Man.I can’t front,i just found that out a couple of days ago.I was aware of the old cartoon,just not a huge fan of it.Everytime i look at this figure on display,it reminds me of Turbo Man from the Schwarzenegger Christmas film.Not a knock at all as this is one of the coolest figures i own!It’s figures like this that make collectors want to hunt down more of these MOTU Classics gems.I used to see these online alot and say to myself that i’d never own any,because of the fact that they were so pricey and only accessible through a subscription.Props to Big Lots and MATTEL for making them available to the general public and at a great low price.Even if i’m not able to pick up any other figures from the line,i’m happy to own the few that i have now.

MOTU Classics-Orko

Not crazy about this character,but the figure is a nice representation.All i remember from the vintage version was the pull string gimmick  but that’s about it.In the hood back in the day you’d see Orko on many a wall,incorporated into graffitti pieces.He does have a  sort of a b-boyish look to him.

MOTU Classics-Prince Adam

I’m not hooked,but impressed.I will definitely add a couple more of these to the old collection if i get the chance,but won’t go nuts coveting them.I will say that they are a hell of a lot more poseable than i originally thought.I’ve seen tons of pics of these Classics figures  on other blogs,but never really in any cool poses.Most were in a stiff upright position which led me to think that the legs had limited movement.I really didn’t go nuts posing Prince Adam,but i was able to put him in some pretty cool stances.Quick question to all of the MOTU experts out there-Is there any particular reason why Adams clothing has the same color scheme as Orko’s?
