For the uninitiated, Masters of The Universe Classics (MOTUC) is a modern take on the classic figures from the 80’s. The character designs remain mostly unchanged, but the quality, proportions, detail, paint and articulation have all been ramped up to modern day standards (and beyond).
I have faint memories of He-Man and only really had a handful of the later figures, so nostalgia isn’t a major factor in my love of these. They are just crazy characters that ooze with unhinged creativity and campiness. That combined with extremely high quality production makes for an irresistible product. I’ll probably post more about MOTUC in the future because they are one of the main lines I currently collect, but this post is to highlight something else.
Action figure reviews are plentiful online, they are usually informative, but not always that interesting. Matthew K on The Fwoosh goes the extra mile and really makes these figures shine. He builds increasingly elaborate dioramas, lights them with Eternian flare and poses the figures in dynamic interactions. His shots make me appreciate these figures even more.
I’ve linked to all the reviews he’s done so far after the jump. Unfortunately he seems to have slowed up a bit. Hopefully we’ll see the next installment soon. I personally can’t wait to see him shoot the Sorceress when she comes our way in February.
