Odds and ends October 8, 2015

Justin Bieber's penis is swimming across the internet, but everyone is OK with this. No one is raising a poopstorm about the poor young man's privacy... The complete opposite of what happened when we saw J-Law's mammaries. I mean, the FEDS wanted to protect Katniss' funbags, but the Bieber's wood? Crappy Gawker who still hasn't felt the wrath of Hulk Hogan seems to be celebrating the Bieb's indiscretion. Same media site who was condemning all those who fapped to saw all those female celebrity nude pics, is A-OK with sharing Bieber-dick pics.

But, this is not the bit of Bieber news that I wanted to talk about. Clickbait sites, akin to Buzzfeed are sharing this cute little story about Bieber being a douchebag to Ronda Rousey's little sister... 

Ronda Rousey Calls Out Justin Bieber For Being... por Linkbeef

Ooh! Justin Bieber vs Ronda Rousey is a UFC Fight that I'd pay to see... Followed by Chicken Man Punk vs THE Power Ranger, but Punk's a chicken,

Speaking of Power Rangers, the Movie Reboot is happening and they cast a Pink Ranger.
It's a Movie Reboot, so I am wary of those, but it's a new tale on Mighty Morphin, so I'm interested. Hopefully it will not suck...

Speaking of Sucking... Spidey is now Tony Stark, he even has The Prowler acting as his own Rhodey... the only not completely sucky thing is that The Living Brain is now housing an Otto Octavius AI.

So Marvel has an issue with Peter being married and having a somewhat normal adult life and they turn to the Devil to make Peter the Auntie's Boy Perennial Bachelor Loser that he was in his youth, because Reasons; but they are A-OK in turning Peter into Tony Stark Jr.!?
No wonder I quit Marvel.

It Came From the Toy Chest: Neither Whiplash, nor Kobra Khan...

Saurod, the Final Movie Character of the Movie Trinity (Blade, Gwildor and Saurod)
is finally here.The only Evil Warrior to be KILLED by Skeletor has reached MOTUC. Just watch the 1987 movie to get who he is... He's like the Store Brand version of either Whiplash or Kobra Khan... Since his name is SAURod, I'll say Whiplash.

The Classics Canon makes him a member of one the species that was spliced by MITCH into the Snakemen. He then kills 2 key Snakemen in UB2 and the movie did not happen... Cause Wibbly Wobbly Specky Wecky...

But like I said, he completes the Movie Trio and Hopefully, sometime in the Future, Mattel will make a Karg to complete the team...

Now let's take a look at the figure, shall we?

He has Standard MOTUC Articulation, seeing he is a Standard MOTUC Figure... EXCEPT, the tail armor that blocks some Leg Articulation... also, the Tail is like Lizardman's (It's Lizardman's). No vehicle Riding for this guy. (Can't sit on a Wind Raider or Talon Fighter and can't pilot a Sky sled.)

Paint and Sculpt:
Only the Torso and Feet are old pieces (clawful and Bow) Everything else is brand new baby! The Paintjob is more Toy based than Movie based. They had to seeing that the movie design is very monochromatic. Part of me wishes that there was a bit of a more obvious difference between the chainmail and his skintone. Same thing with his pants? Are those pants, or is that his naked flesh near the crotch and legs? Better change the topic... Paint apps.There are a few sloppy areas on mine, but not super noticeable. The armor has a lot of details that make him seem like a hardened warrior. It may look "hyperdetailed" next to a Robot Knight or Vanilla Skeletor, but to be fair, there's no way to make Chainmail look good without looking "Hyperdetailed".

1 gun... That's it! that knocks him to a 1.0 in the accessory department. He Definitely needed some Sparks that could have plugged into his face to recreate his vintage action figure.

but Ninjor doesn't care about Classics Canon... FATALITY!!
Saurod gets a 3.0 here. Like Choobs before him, he is lacking something. Also, I weep because his lower legs and right forearm could have been PERFECT for Spector!The Good thing is that he's a very expressive figure by using some dynamic posing. The lower score is due to the lack of accessories. If not, he'd be rated higher.
