  • Oo-Lar: Reviews and Discussion

    I finally got around to reviewing Oo-Lar. While I'm glad to have this character (he's an important part of the development of he He-Man character) he does feel a little less impressive than I hoped he would be. Still, he's a pretty solid toy. What do y'all think? Has anyone else reviewed him here? it'd be nice to collect a number of links to written reviews in this thread for the sake of a more well rounded discussion.

    Oo-Larr is awesome. I gave him the Grayskull weapons for when he becomes He-man

    He's a cool figure. I wish they would have made him kind of a dress up figure, where you could somehow swap the bare feet for boots, a removable belt to switch between primitive loin cloth and the standard look, removable bare arms/gauntlet arms. But that's probably not practical.

      I'm both ecstatic and meh over this figure. This is essentially the He-man I grew up with. I love the loincloth plus the amazing alternate head.

      The grimacing faced standard does give options but something seems off to me. The spear is definitely not comic accurate. I also agree that the shins/feet seem awkward. (I used a classics jimmy superfly snuka for my custom and i noticed the difference right away.)

      Mattel could've spruced him up a bit by these suggestions. Swappable hands (an open/gripping pair or aloft set for instance; see evilmike's shapeway store), then the bracers could snap in place, a belt like battle fist possibly could've given him the other version, and snap-on boots like vykron would've completed the faze.

      oh well...guess we got a mini comic, a generic sword, and a new battle ax (sorta') instead. :twobad:

        Just received my figure. I love the two heads. The vintage style He-Man head looks great on Battle Armor He-Man.
