   Seize your Outdated Bay and a few drawn butter; immediately we’re having a look at Clawful! Clawful is called the warrior with the grip of evil and he is one of many 1984 additions to the Evil Warriors. I am fairly positive I bought Clawful for Christmas as a child, possibly in 1986 or 1987, and whereas he wasn’t one in every of my absolute favorites as a child I at all times did like his outsized claw. This man seems like he is able to throw down with Fisto and Jitsu with that huge proper claw. Clawful is a part of the most recent sequence of Masters of the Universe Origins figures and he is one other determine that I actually suppose is an enchancment over the classic toy. Let’s try this tackle Clawful after the break and see if he packs some severe pinch…

* The Origins Clawful is on the left whereas the classic Clawful is on the proper. What’s totally different? Aside from the overall construct of the figures the armor is brighter on the brand new determine whereas the pores and skin is darker. The pinnacle additionally has extra enamel moderately than the bizarre fangs of the classic toy.

The Positives:

* Clawful is type of bizarre as a result of he seems like a luchadore in a crab costume moderately than an precise crab individual (his race is known as the Karikoni). That is as a result of his uncovered, extra human trying legs and arms and having an everyday torso. With the armor from Origins (which is way sturdier and appears higher) he seems extra crab-like, although, and the darker pores and skin tone matches the reds of his claws, torso, and head. The extra pronounced ridges and such on his physique additionally look higher right here and provides him a extra inhuman look.

* Clawful has at all times type of appeared like a Muppet because of his huge, goofy eyebrows, however Mattel did make his mouth look a bit extra fearsome right here. He has far more enamel than the classic toy they usually look sharper and extra horrifying. His head can be far more detailed. He seems fairly good. Nonetheless type of goofy, however in a great way. Clawful undoubtedly has by no means been depicted because the sharpest knife within the drawer.

*The again of Clawful’s armor (or is that this really his shell) has a very neat ridged sample on it, similar to the classic toy. 

* Clawful appears to be a fiddler crab since he has one claw a lot bigger than the opposite. Not solely is it tremendous cool simply operating round with one claw bigger than the opposite however this one has some actual pinching energy. Transfer the little tab on the underside and you’ll open the claw. There’s somewhat mechanism inside in order that it snaps shut by itself. For security, get some little rubber bands to place round it just like the lobsters wore that grocery shops used to promote. Keep in mind going to the grocery retailer and watching these guys hanging out within the tanks?

* Like Buzz-Off, Clawful advantages from the extra detailed limbs and extra monstrous palms and toes. They undoubtedly make him extra thrilling than most figures with the identical limbs and boots and such.

* 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’d get for those who combined 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 personal lazy boy customs!

* Clawful comes sporting his membership which seems very similar to the basic accent. The loop is bigger however he may maintain the deal with together with his smaller claw as properly.

* I am by no means going to show down a minicomic and I like that Mattel introduced them again for Origins. This one seems cool because it introduces Solar-Man into Masters of the Universe however what the heck is occurring with Clawful on the duvet? He seems like a chicken or one thing! There’s simply manner an excessive amount of happening on this problem for six pages, as properly. Anti-Eternia He-Man exhibits as much as beat down Skeletor and Clawful after which Solar-Man exhibits as much as defeat him. There are Horde Troops randomly operating round, too, and He-Man and Solar-Man by no means even trade dialogue. Solar-Man deserves higher!

   Clawful is unquestionably an Epic Masters of the Universe Origins determine. He is improbable. Nice sculpt, improved headsculpt over the classic toy, a functioning claw; what else might Clawful have that you just’d need? I like Masters of the Universe Origins an increasing number of with every launch and this sequence undoubtedly has me pumped up. I haven’t got Solar-Man or the Horde Trooper but however once I get them you’ll be able to ensure that I will assessment them immediately. Will both of them overtake Clawful for the title of one of the best determine in sequence 8? We’ll have to attend and see. Simply know that I’ve my greatest individuals on the market in search of the remainder of sequence 8 as we converse.

   Are you a fan of Clawful? Then get a giant facet of melted butter and take a look at my evaluations of the M.U.S.C.L.E. Clawful from Sequence 3, Pack A , the Funko POP! Clawful #1018, and the MOTUC Heads of Eternia pack that contains a Clawful head.
