This determine can be a repaint of Beast Man from the 2020 Energy-Con Lords of Energy set however I used to be stunned to search out that I truly like the colours on this model higher. It seems nearer to the art work of Mark Taylor, the designer and creator who handed away on December twenty fourth, 2021. Learn some books about Masters of the Universe or watch a few of the documentaries out there and it is clear that the creation of MOTU was a bunch effort. Whereas credit score have to be given to Roger Candy, I (and plenty of others) credit score Mark Taylor with not simply designing the road however with bringing the center and soul to it. Simply take a look at the art work of Mr. Taylor and you may robotically acknowledge that he had these concepts in his thoughts and in his artwork for years previous to the road being pitched. It is actually cool to see the Lords of Energy Beast Man get a mainstream launch so let’s check out him after the break…

* The collection 6 Lords of Energy Beast Man is on the left whereas the Energy-Con 2020 model is on the appropriate. The Energy-Con model seems extra just like the Lords of Energy toy prototype whereas the only carded model, with it is yellow/ gold armor and darker pink fur, seems extra like Mark Taylor’s artwork. Do not these guys appear to be the perfect wrestling tag workforce you’ve got ever seen?

The Positives:

* Beast Man seems much more fearsome on this determine than he does in so many others. His armor is massive and imposing and he seems much more regal than the Beast Man we’re used to. This man would not appear to be he’d take any crap from Skeletor. Significantly, if I did not know any higher and also you informed me this man was the boss and Skeletor was his lackey, I might imagine you. The darker pink colour is very nice and simply provides this model of Beast Man a unique really feel.

*  Like I mentioned when reviewing the Energy-Con model, Beast Man’s new headsculpt is much extra savage than the classic toy and his tooth are huge.  You may virtually use this man as one other character in the event you wished to. Possibly he is Biff Beast Man’s older brother, Buff Beast Man! 

*  The armor is absolutely fairly spectacular and appears nice on this golden yellow colour. The medallion on his chest is smaller than on the classic Beast Man however it’s a lot sharper wanting, undoubtedly cleaner. He is additionally sporting some main spikes on his shoulders. They’re loopy wanting! Think about him operating at you with these!

* The ornate belt is a detachable piece as effectively. The star design on is jogs my memory extra of the usual Beast Man medallion than the necklace he wears on his chest on this determine. 

* I really like the claws mounted on the wrists of this model of Beast Man. These are means higher than the small claw he is all the time worn on his proper knuckles. These are each ornate and look fairly deadly in a struggle. 

* The MOTU Origins figures are constructed just like the classic toys however with extra fashionable articulation. Whereas their cumbersome frames make the articulation a bit clumsy, they do really feel like an evolution of the classic line. Think about what you’ll get in the event you blended a classic determine with a MOTUC determine. They’re fairly enjoyable to play with they usually really feel very sturdy.

* They’re additionally modular and will be simply separated to make your individual lazy boy customs!

* Every determine within the collection additionally comes with a mini comedian. Sure, an precise minicomic. Everyone will get the identical comedian however it’s a cool method to familiarize youngsters choosing up these figures with the characters. 

The Negatives:

* Ummm….. Is Beast Man going commando? As a result of, critically, why are his belt and furry trunks unpainted? If the belt had at the least been painted then I might count on that he is only a furry animal, like a Wookie or one thing, however that is simply odd. Yeah, the belt covers up a few of it, however it’s nonetheless noticeable. Possibly that is the particular “Get together Beast Man” variant? 

* Beast Man nonetheless has the bizarre bootie ft that the usual determine has. This is able to have been an awesome alternative to make some extra savage wanting animal ft, particularly since that is what the Lords of Energy prototype had.

   The Lords of Energy Beast Man turned out to be a extra thrilling determine than I believed. I wasn’t actually wanting ahead to this man because it appeared like simply an ordinary repaint however he actually turned out to be fairly cool in hand and a pleasant tribute to Mark Taylor’s art work. I nonetheless want Mattel would give him some extra beastly ft, although, as these easy sock-like ft simply look too darn bizarre. The unpainted trunks are humorous, too. Bizarre. Nonetheless, he is a Nice determine and a pleasant refresh of Beast Man.
