This is the best thing. The BEST THING. As I have said time and time again on this blog, I am totally uninformed on everything related to the Masters of the Universe. I don’t know the characters, the stories, the toys, the games, the show or the movies. I can kind of figure out some vague ideas about it thanks to Wikipedia descriptions, but for the most part I am completely in the dark.
And yet I love this thing! Because as an action figure fan, I know that weapons packs can provide an awesome bonus to the toys you’ve already got handy, but rarely do they stand on their own. You usually end up with a handful of tiny, loose accessories that you either have to have on the toys at all time, keep in the plastic or put aside somewhere. This one, though, is a weapons pack and looks like, well…a pack of weapons! Organised neatly on a display stand that will house the weapons as a warrior would demand.
It ships in 2011 and you can pre-order it now or check out the rest of the Masters of the Universe collection!
