Snake Mountain from Super 7 (or) Am I Really Going to Skip This thing?

I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO HERE, PEOPLE.

I have almost every Masters of the Universe Classics figure and toy I want. As of right now I am missing Zodac (who I just the other day realized I don’t own somehow), the Roton, and of course my holiest of holy grails, Wun-Dar.

If you’re new here, Wun-Dar slipped through my fingers a few years ago because I decided to go eat right before getting to the toy vendor that had one. Which he sold to someone for a ridiculously low price right in front of me as soon as I got back.

I haven’t eaten since.

I have tons of figures. I have a Wind Raider and a Griffin and the two giants. I have a huge drawer full of all of the weapons packs that I really shouldn’t have bought but I just had to have He-Man’s weapons in green or some asshole’s whip that I don’t even remember right now. I have Castle motherfreaking Grayskull.

How can I possibly pass up Snake Mountain?

Toy Review – Masters of the Universe Classics Ultimate Filmation from Super 7

When Super 7 took over the Masters of the Universe Classics line from Mattel I was pretty much okay with being done with the line.

I had every character I ever wanted (except for Wun-Dar, who I now consider a lost cause) and plenty I didn’t. I looked at the shift in companies as an opportunity to bail. As a matter of fact, I intentionally neglected updating my credit card information for the final few months of Mattel’s releases because I decided I didn’t need them.

Fortunately I was able to pick the ones I wanted up for cheap at GameStop and ThinkGeek a couple of years later.

Super 7 has announced a couple of things I want here and there – most notably Karg – but after years of subscribing to MattyCollector and paying for things I don’t really want I can’t justify signing up Super 7’s sets, which have all included at least two figures I do not want.

Note: Obviously this does not include the recently announced and offered William Stout Collection. I jumped on those day one.

From time to time Super 7 offers individual figures, though. And I’ve been more than happy to grab them because they’ve been fun, gimmicky things like Laughing Prince Adam and Holiday He-Man. And today’s subjects.

I was never particularly interested in the Filmation style Classics figures. They look great, but they don’t fit in with the regular Classics collection and I don’t want to start all over again. I have Trap-Jaw – who is the character I’ll buy in pretty much any form – thanks to our pal Rad Ranger, but I had no plans to own anybody beyond him.

Then Super 7 revealed that beautiful and weird Robot He-Man head, as well as Laughing Skeletor.

Those excellent pieces were to be included with all-new Ultimate figures of Filmation He-Man and Skeletor, which weren’t necessarily on my “needs” list, but were gimmicky and interesting enough to grab my attention. I was well aware that I might be inviting a case of Potato Chip Syndrome by buying these, but I hadn’t felt any particular compulsion to order any of the other Filmation releases. I think I’ll be okay.

These two arrived a day prior to me receiving the shipping notice because apparently Super 7 is now utilizing time machines to ship their products. Were they a good purchase? Did Super 7 deliver “Ultimate” figures? Am I now compelled to collect all of the other Filmation releases?
