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?

Masters “Classics” – Big Lots

Call me cheap,but when i first laid eyes on  this Orko “Classics” figure at my local Big Lots i said to myself “self,10 bucks is too much for an Orko figure.” I mean i wouldn’t shell out 10 for an original.Then i took a peek inside and realised that not only did it include a cool(and hopefully functioning) stand ,but lying at the bottom of the packaging  was a fully articulated Prince Adam figure!Kind of  an odd way to package a figure imo.So 10 bucks for two figs and a stand warranted the purchase .Now i am the proud owner of my first ever MOTU Classics action figures ;)I’ve stated before how i wasn’t the biggest fan of the uprightedness of these figures.Tonight i’ll mess around with the Prince Adam figure a bit  to see if  it changes my mind.
