Happy Tuesday, everyone! Hope your week is off to a good start. If your week wasn’t good for whatever reason, we hope that after you read this awesome review, it would start to be good!
Today we are looking at the new Mega Construx MOTU set: Mega Construx HFF27 Masters of the Universe She-Ra vs Hordak and Monstroid.
The box art:
The finished set:
As usual, what drew us to this set were the awesome minifigures that come with it. This set comes with 3 minifigures: He-Man, She-Ra, and Hordak. Let’s take a look at each.
He-Man comes with a blue coat, 1 sword, and 1 shield.
The She-Ra minifigure is definitely a unique one that only comes with this set. We would say, she is the main reason why people would buy this MOTU set. She comes with a sword and a cape. Let’s take a look.
The head piece looks like this:
The body and the cape:
The skirt is made of rubber so it can stretch pretty good.
Hordak comes with a cool breast plate and a crossbow.
The 3 faces:
One thing that we now like to do is to showcase how detailed Mega Construx minifigures are. One of the ways to showcase that, is to show a closeup picture of the character’s face. Let’s take a look:
We would say, Hordak possibly has the best paint quality of all 3 characters. We could see She-Ra’s lipstick smeared a little bit on the left side, and He-Man’s right eye was a bit off.
Next, let’s take a look at the Monstroid build.
The build was pretty nice. Monstroid has 4 legs and 2 arms with claws, which were all attached to the body via the ball joint pieces. So the range of motion for each limb is pretty good.
The claws can open and close. The “thumb” piece is also connected to the main claw via a ball joint piece.
The claw can effectively grab and hold on to an object pretty tight. In this case, that object is of course, He-Man!
The head can spin 360 degrees, and it is controlled by the knob at the back.
The whole body is pretty much covered with smooth pieces, which is pretty cool.
Overall, we think this set is worth buying because the playability aspect of it is pretty high. Because all the limbs are connected via the ball joint pieces, they can easily be removed (thus increasing the playability aspect of this model). For example, in 1 possible play scenario, She-Ra or He-Man could attack Monstroid and sever several limbs, while Hordak is trying to defend his stance.
