Masters Of The Universe Classics Hover Robots Review

Masters Of The Universe Classics Hover Robots 01

Mattel’s 2015 Traveling Convention Exclusive is the Hover Robots and available throughout the year at conventions that Mattel attends (NYCC, etc.), and any show organizer that wishes to carry these at their show. Last year with Goatman, he was available at SDCC and Mattycollector (with limited sale dates only). Mattel had cancelled their trip to New York Comic-Con, and Power-Con was cancelled, Goatman wasn’t really available, which made it a lot harder for people to obtain him given his limited availability last year.

Hopefully, 2015 will be a better year for availability of the Hover Robots, which are key army builders to most Masters of the Universe fans and collectors. We encourage any show organizer to get in touch with Mattel and carry these at your show, and we can pretty much guarantee would draw in people that just want to buy the figure, and will likely spend additional time shopping and participating in your events. Considering this figure is not available only a couple of conventions a year, if that, would put yours on the map regardless of location or how small your show might be. Just something to consider and again we encourage show organizers and administrations to test the waters and give the traveling figure a try.

Availability: April 2015 Early Access, Throughout The Year At Conventions, End Of Year At Mattycollector

Sculpt & Paint:

The Hover Robots are all-new sculpted figures with interchangeable hands, a sticker sheet to add battle damage, and flight stands. The figure sculpts themselves are all the same with a good amount of articulation, and to make them unique, Mattel and the Four Horsemen have given you an option to switch out their hands and apply stickers to add detail to the sculpt. The sticker sheets have several different options including blast marks, slash marks large and small, exposed wiring, and large holes.

The sculpt itself is accurate to the cartoon, and each figure has a different panel mouth making all three unique. On the sculpts are panel lines, bolts on the front, a panel on the back and sides located under the arms.

Hover Robots are painted light blue, silver, with a black panel with orange and yellow lines indicating the mouth.

Articulation:

Swivel heads (dome shaped), ball-hinged shoulders, hinged-swivel elbows, and swivel wrists.

Accessories:

6x Interchangeable hands (2 sets of hands for each figure), sticker sheet, 3x acrylic flight stands.

Overall:

The Hover Robots are an excellent army builder set and we hope to see more three packs like this in the future from Mattel.

Highly Recommended.

Hover Robots Bio:

Real Name: N/A
During his campaign of terror against King Randor’s Masters of the Universe, Skeletor often utilized Robotic Hover Drones to carry out his evil stratagems. Based on a design he pilfered from his dark arts teacher, Hordak, Skeletor’s drones were more agile than his mentor’s and carried a built in hover field to increase their mobility and durability. Hover Robots will effortlessly carry out any order—including self destruction! These techno-bots of terror carry a variety of weapons, including laser riffles, blade blasters and net lassos. Often on the front lines of battle, Hover Robots confront the Masters of the Universe in endless combat.
