Mattel is offering a new wave of Masterverse figures, which includes New Eternia Trap Jaw and Man-A-Arms, that are inspired from the 1980’s counterparts, Sorceress Teela and Skeletek, which are inspired from the Revelation series on Netflix. Trap Jaw is a member of Skeletor’s Evil Warriors, and is a cyborg with a metal jaw, and a robotic arm that can turn into three different weapons.
Thank you to Mattel for sending along their Masters of the Universe Masterverse New Eternia Trap Jaw Figure for review.
Availability: December 2023
Trap Jaw is packaged in a window box, with beautifully done artwork of the character, and additional characters and vehicles such as the Sky Sled and Point Dread on the front and right side, images of Trap Jaw on the left, and images of the figure on the back in various poses. Also on the back is a look at the rest of the wave.
Trap Jaw is inspired from his 1980’s counterpart, and given a modern sculpt that fits in with the overall Masterverse line. Trap Jaw comes in his classic colors, including a blue chest, left arm, and hips. The robotic arm is painted to like metal, and is a dark grey with a metallic blue highlights. The harness on his chest is black on the left, which is meant to be how the arm is connected to his body, and the right is a shade of light blue with the holster for the sword on the back. The belt is metallic green with several shades, with a skull on the front, with purple lion cloth underneath. The legs are also given some armor with black and light green, and the boots with black and a metallic blue wash.
The head sculpt features a hinged metal jaw that shows his severed lower jaw underneath, a metallic pink and silver helmet, green skin with yellow eyes, and nicely done facial details.
Included with Trap Jaw are four interchangeable arm parts, including a blaster, sword, hook and a jaw.
He is fully articulated, and includes a ball jointed head, hinged jaw, swivel-hinged shoulders, swivel biceps, double-hinged elbows, swivel-hinged right wrist, left swivel arm parts, ball jointed torso, swivel waist, ball jointed hips, swivel thighs, double-hinged knees, swivel boots, hinged and rocker ankles.
The four arm parts are interchangeable, and includes a hook, blaster, jaw and sword. Each of the attachments have pegs on the side that can hang from the back of the belt, and the sword can be placed on the holster on his back.
The attachments are all painted the same as the mechanical arm, and the sword has a metallic silver blade, including a face with horns that is in a light grey. He can also hold the sword, hook and jaw in his left hand.
Trap Jaw is given a brand new sculpt and sets apart from what has come before. This includes a new take on the character, and the mechanical arm, armor and overall design is different compared to his Revelation and Classics releases.
This comparison is with some recent purchases, including Horde Skeletor, Webstor, Clawful, Faker, and Slush Head.
Overall, Trap Jaw is an excellent figure that fans are sure to love. This is a great modern take on Trap Jaw, and I personally like how he came out better than the MOTU Classics version. You can find him and additional figures now at the stores listed below:
