Going back a few years to the days of He Man and the Masters Of The Universe, toy shops would have been rife with the sight of action figures. Muscles bound heroic types and evil looking monsters. The success of the cartoon spurned many toys over a period of several years. One of the slightly later releases was the Moss Man toy. Moss Man was so called because he was made of moss, meaning he could blend into his background surroundings and disguise himself from enemies. Despite his ferocious abode, he was quite a kind hearted soul who meant no harm.
This is a newer take on the original toy, he has been beefed up and looks more like the Incredible Hulk this time round! Moss Man is still covered in moss, or in this case, a material. The felt like texture of his fur adds a lovely touch to the figure and makes him stand out from his shinier plastic counterparts. This new Moss Man toy looks quite different, in that the head has shrunk and the torso has doubled in size. His face looks even more fierce and there is better detail on his facial features.
Moss Man comes in an atheltic looking pose, though you can move his head, arms and legs to shape him into different positions. Complete in his fetching brown trunks and gold banded plates around his wrists, he looks primitive yet regal in a weird way.
He comes with a stumpy club to batter his enemies with which he can grip.
He Man fans will be delighted with the new look figure, though bear in mind he is hard to come by in the UK, so you might have to order him from overseas. Prices could vary, but expect to pay upwards of fifteen pounds to get him new as boxed. A wonderful remodelling on the classic toy though!
