  • Pixel-Dan's MOTUC Rio Blast figure video review

    PD called out all the flaws. I like the comparison shots too - it shows that the head is nothing like vintage!

      That chest flap would have been easy to make flat... all they had to do was put a little hole in the armor underneath the flap so it just snapped in. Bloody stupid.

        Good review. I'm glad all of the flaws were called out. You can just see the disappointment all over Dan's face in that review. This should have been one of the best figures in the line, but it has so many glaring mistakes on it thanks to Mattel Design. The fact that the flap on his chest can't close is inexcusable. The guns not being able to rotate in the hands is also a terrible design choice. When placed next to the staction and the original toy, MOTUC Rio Blast looks really bad. This figure is an epic fail.

          I actually think it still looks good and I'm not nearly as disappointed in this figure as many others. As for the chest flap, I think I'll use an x-acto knife and carve a small hole in the armor so that it sits flat.

            I'll be avoiding this one. Never really liked the character to begin with, this review just cinches it. I'll make due with my vintage version.

              Glad to see Dan pointed clearly these "flaws"...but I will get this figure but I wonder should I repaint his weapons just for improve overall look of figure. Is anyone else planning do repaint for him too?

                I may add a few silver highlights to the guns. Will also be fixing the chest with an x-acto knife.

              A somehow good looking figure that was horribly executed! Not just the flap and none rotated guns, but also the gun visor doesn't cover his eyes in battle mode, seriously!!!??? :bang:

                This figure is garbage.

                  If Pixel Dan bashes figures too much,Toyguru might stop giving him samples

                    he probably felt comfortable being honest for once because the line is ending.

                  We've been " Rubened"!

                  Thankfully that clown is off the line. It's a shame what should've been a cool figure was reduced to this.

                    It's Ruben's love gift to the fans. In Mattel's system that translates to F-you.

                  I love the excuses currently being given on Matty. Bunch of dicks.

                      I'm happy Dan actually pointed out all the flaws. It's good to see him offering his honest opinion again.

                          I really hope he wasn't a rushed figure just to WOW us and this happened. One of my most wanted and I'm slightly bummed he seemingly less love on some of his parts cause for the most part the Horsemen put some sweetness into him.

                            Rio-Blast is art imitating life, and the face of the brand manager - A useless flap, permanently hanging open, which looks awful and annoys almost everyone

                              This is Ruben's final insult to the fans. He managed to cram pretty muck all of his design F ups into one figure. I bet he honestly is overjoyed with himself. Fing troll.

                                "disappointing" doesn't even come close to describing the turmoil.
