Action Figure Review: Goat Man from Masters of the Universe Classics by Mattel
Goat Man stands a little over 6 3/4 inches tall and features a mixture of new and reused parts. His boots, waist, torso, upper arms, and hands are all reused while his thighs, forearms, and head are new pieces. Due to the amount of reuse on him and his design, he really has a style that is reminescent of the first two years of the vintage Masters of the Universe toyline.
Goat Man has a pretty great paint scheme. I love his red and purple look with black highlights. Everything is pretty neat and clean on this guy, especially the little details like his teeth and little red pupils. There are some almost unnoticeable metallic highlights in a few places, too, such as the clasps on his boots and the details on his wrist bracers. He's also got some nice dark drybrushing on his armor and head that gives him a much more sophisticated appearance.
Icer, but that one was based on an artifact that appeared in the Filmation cartoon series and had nothing to do with the Avions. The Emerald Staff of Avion is a beautifully sculpted accessory that has a nice handle which is convenient because it lets Stratos actually hold the accessory. Painted with green and gold paint apps, the headpiece of the staff and the four orbs surrounding it are cast in a translucent green plastic. It's gorgeous and looks quite impressive! Definitely one of the coolest accessories in the line to date, as well. I love receiving mystical, magical pieces like this!
