  • Pixel-Dan's Extendar Review...



    Pretty cool figure IMO although I'm not too keen on the gummy parts or the hindered shoulder articulations, especially that gummy weapon of his! But then again it's freakin Mattel!

    Saw he uploaded that! I was like yeah...no. Not gonna waste my time.
    Not every beast is tender, especially if there is genius in his making.

      The one thing that is a kabosh is that large arse gold ring around the belly....

        For the most part I like the figure. I really like his head. On the down side, that gold ring around the belt looks terrible. I think it would have looked much better if they had just raised the entire belt on the crotch piece, rather than add a gold ring at the top. As is, it looks like the belt is hanging too low on him.

          Did Dan even comment about the gold belt? It is one of those things I don't think I am going to be able to judge till he is in hand.

            No, he did not. I guess he didn't think it was an issue. I find it an odd design choice. The prototype did not have the gold ring.

            According to Matty it was to stabilize the weight distribution, but no one figured to maybe just stretch the abs out and keep it white...

            I get the need for the gold lap band...But why didn't they just make the belt larger? Longer abs would be anatomically strange. If I was the 4HM I would be pissed...

          To me the golden ring looks terrible, the bulky armor is not that apparent on this figure.

          For a modern action figure collector's line I see this particular one to be somewhat lackluster.

            They must have loved Extendar a lot, caused they listened to Beyoncé and put a ring on it...

            Another figure ruined by a stupid decision. That ring looks ridiculous.

                That is what makes the least amount of sense. Have we even gotten a BS excuse in this regard?

                Despite the flaws, I'm blinded by nostalgia on this one since he was one of the figures I played with the most. It doesn't excuse the flaws, and You'd think it would exacerbate them in my mind, but I'm surprised at my self for being as accepting of them as I am...Perhaps Matty is just beating down my rebellious concern? I am just happy to have him. *dodges tomatoes...

                I loved the comparison shot of him next to Sir Laser Lot. I really wish that Sir Laser Lot and him shared some parts. I'm the one guy wh actually likes SLL

                  Oh, and Cy-Chop is one of my favs. Seriously, I don't get why people hate on that figure.
