Webstor from Masters of the Universe Origins by Mattel


   Prepared for the third determine from collection 6 of Masters of the Universe Origins? It is Webstor, the Evil Grasp of Escape! I keep in mind getting Webstor for Christmas as a child one yr, in all probability 1987 or 1988. I wasn’t born till after MOTU was already out so I bought into it a bit later and possibly bought numerous toys that have been nonetheless hanging round on cabinets. I keep in mind getting him the identical yr that I bought the Slime Pit. How humorous that I bought him on Christmas morning 30 some years later, huh? I am all the time glad to see the man present up as he is a very creepy character and I dig his blue and purple coloration scheme and that vibrant orange rifle. This model of Webstor additionally has a working motion function, identical to the classic toy. How cool is that? Let’s test him out after the break…

The Details:

Top: 5 3/4ths inches

Articulation: Swivel/ hinge ankles, calve swivels, swivel/hinge knees, balljointed hips, swivel waist, swivel/hinge shoulders, swivel/hinge elbows, swivel/hinge wrists, and a double balljointed head.

Equipment: 2piece climbing pack armor, rifle, and minicomic.

Non-Scalper Value: $16-$18 {dollars}


* The Origins Webstor is on the left whereas the classic Webstor is on the precise. Mattel did a beautiful job of capturing the look of the classic determine. Moreover the overall construct of the determine the most important distinction is that the newer determine has a brighter, bolder blue coloration. 

The Positives:

* Webstor’s cool blue pores and skin and purple armor makes the black widow impressed sample on his armor stand out fairly effectively. It is an incredible look and actually stand out. Webstor’s armor is product of two separate items and it is pretty simple to take away if you need Webstor to go with out it for some cause. He makes use of a fairly commonplace physique so the colour of his pores and skin and the armor are fairly important to his total aesthetic.

* Webstor has a really creepy face. I like the a number of crimson eyes and the bizarre fangs. He is positively one of many creepier of the classic Evil Warriors for certain. 

* The MOTU Origins figures are constructed just like the classic toys however with extra trendy 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 if you happen to blended a classic determine with a MOTUC determine. They’re fairly enjoyable to play with and so they really feel very sturdy.

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

* Webstor comes with a grappling hook that whereas not detachable until you undo the not does give him an additional accent. It is fairly fascinating he is a spider particular person (technically an Arachna) who wants to make use of a grappling hook and twine fairly than webs. Cool, although. It is sort of inspiring how the MOTU characters discover methods to complement their pure talents or lack thereof. 

* His backpack really has a climbing function just like the classic determine. Pull the small purple tab on the underside of the determine and Webstor’s pack “climbs” up the rope in the direction of the grappling hook. There are even some clips on the edges of the pack to carry the surplus cable and/ or the grappling hook when it is not wanted.

* Webstor comes together with his basic orange laser rifle and I like it. It is actually much like the classic accent however feels a bit extra stable. I like the concept that Webstor is a sniper: He makes use of his grappling hook and pure talents to rise up someplace excessive after which makes use of his laser rifle to choose off his foes.

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

The Negatives:

* Mattel has continued the custom of the classic figures by giving most figures a gripping hand and an open “grappling” hand. Sadly, because of this Webstor cannot maintain his rifle and his grappling hook on the identical time. I sort of want he may and I would be thrilled if figures with multiple accent got here with two gripping palms. However have a look at me: I am griping about gripping!

   Webstor is one other glorious determine and he is up to now tied with the Eternian Goddes as my favourite determine of collection 6. He appears to be like unbelievable, has a working motion function, and is simply a variety of enjoyable to fiddle with. Keep in mind again 2009 when the MOTUC Webstor did not even have the working backpack although the promoting appeared to indicate it did? How cool is it that after 12 years Mattel managed to get a working Webstor onto cabinets once more? I like it. 

Webstor is simply beginning to get some respect round right here.
