Behold, Plundor!  This guy is certainly one of the oddest Masters of the Universe villains, ever (and that’s saying a lot!).  Making only one appearance in the classic 80′s cartoon episode, “The Quest for He-Man”, this bunny warlord was never actually released in toy form.   However, thanks to Charles at Monsterforge Studios, we can look […]

I’m consistently impressed with the custom work of Madtinker76.  Although his work is not limited to MOTU subjects, his reinterpretations of characters from that universe are particularly awesome.  This Snout Spout, for example, which takes the Four Horsemen’s staction interpretation and turns it into a hulking, steam punk, man/ elephant/ robot firefighter.  In addition to […]
