Someone’s been bulking up… and it shows! This beefy boy is ready to knock some sense into Skeletor® or anyone else who tries to get past him. Ram Man®, one of the earliest figures from the vintage MOTU line, is finally available in the Classics line as a fully articulated figure, with a new tool that’s almost twice as big as a standard figure. He comes with his trademark short axe and an alternate 200X-inspired helmet-less head.
At long last, maybe the most requested figure for the past two years of Masters of the Universe Classics is here! You asked for it and now, finally you are getting – Ram Man – a 100% new sculpt, lovingly crafted by the Four Horsemen.
Let’s be honest, as much as Ram Man may be a beloved character for MOTU fans, his vintage figure was always a bit of a dud and a fine example of function over form. He was squatty, had very little articulation, and you couldn’t do much with him apart from the one thing he was designed to do… spring up.
It’s 2013 now and ALL of that changes with this new figure! He was worth the wait to get him done RIGHT. He had to be a 100% new sculpt, anything less would have been criminal. We got a pretty good update of the character in the 200x line but some people didn’t care for his pointy shoulder armor, but this is the definitive version of the character. He’s not tall, but he should be. He IS wide and he is thick… and squinty.
But the best thing is he MOVES! The Horsemen managed to give him the full compliment of articulation including the ab crunch, knee joints and he actually has a surprising range of motion in his neck. The detail on the figure is stellar and helps hide some of the articulation. The detail on the belt, the doublet, the tiny rivets on his armor, even the bottom of his boots, no detail was spared and the Horsemen made sure you are getting your money’s worth for this over sized figure. He also has all of his details painted the proper colors this go-around, including his wrist bands.
Ram Man comes with 2 heads – one with his helmet and one without. He comes with his trademark axe, which can also be clipped to his back or held in his right hand.
Ram Man will be available to order on MattyCollector.com on 2/15/13.
