Now, the vintage Flogg had a removable cowl and helmet. I would have been fine with not having the removable cowl on this Classics toy seeing that is a part of his chest armor, but I would have liked to have had the helmet removable just like the original. I thought that was probably a cheap move from Mattel. Flogg sports the all-time most reused boots from the Classics toy line. This time, we get Horde Prime's feet with them. There has been a lot of dislike for these legs seeing that they are reused quite a bit. To be honest, they don't bother me much on this character. the boots suit him. Now one thing that I was very happy to see was the soft good rope for the laser whip weapon, very much like the vintage toy. In this case, our Classics Flogg doesn't need a weapon that will work well with an action feature, seeing that the Classics toys are void of action features. Flogg also came with the Filmation style Sword of Power. I'm indifferent about this accessory. I don't really need the sword, so I have it on the wall of Grayskull.
Now the armor is a bit bulky. The bulkiness makes it difficult for Flogg to put his arms down close to his body. Having this happening with so many of the Classics characters in these last two years, the bulky body is something I can definitely overlook. All in all, this version of Flogg is a great action figure. If you are a New Adventures fan, this toy is an absolute must! Flogg went on sale at mattycollector.com on the 15th of July. You can find him on Amazon.com here: Masters of the Universe Classics FLOGG Space Mutants Action Figure.

If you have not heard about the Podcast called, "Talking Toys with Taylor and Jeff", then it's time I let you know! Jeff and I are on the show where we talk about toys! (Go figure, I mean Go action figure!) Seems simple enough. We pick out a toy line to discuss in each show. We share our childhood memories, our favorite five, and talk about the one toy in the line that got away. Jeff talks about how he cherished his toys and I talk about how they ended up in the garden! The other show is The pilot episode, where Jeff and Cory break down the Pilot Episode in TV series. The shows are great!
