Mattel’s MOTUC Kobra Khan
March 7, 2012

 

Manufacturer: Mattel

Release Date:  March 15th, 2012

Wave/Assortment:  2012 Club Eternia Figure

Packaging: Single boxed

Accessories:

    • Alternate "hooded" head
    • Gun
    • "Pixel" creature

    Scale: 6"

    Sculpted By: The Four Horsemen

    Notes: Delayed slightly because of the Chinese New Year.  Kobra Kahn comes with a gun and a spare cobra “hooded” head as well as a little lizard pal… some will call “Pixel.”   Kobra has some great new parts such as his torso and calves.  He doesn’t sport the traditional MOTU loincloth, but instead uses a unique rubber over-piece that gives him more specific trunks that match his vintage figure sculpt.

    There were no issues with the one I received.  The heads are easily swappable, and all his joints are tight.   The little “Pixel” lizard sits on his shoulder or “snake suspenders” with a little groove sculpted into the bottom, and he sits just fine on mine using either head.   The gun only fits in the right hand as the left hand is sculpted in a more open “claw” pose.

    Daniel Pickett
    Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
