View Full Version : Mcdonald's Motu Figures

05-02-2003, 06:40 PM
Has anyone heard of the MOTU figures from McDonald's? The set includes He-Man, Skeletor, Man at Arms, Ram-Man, Beast-Man, Little wizard guy (name escapes me) and both He-Man's and Skeletor's battle cats. These are in the 3 3/4 inch version. I got He-Man and Skeletor today for the little guy. Just wondering if anyone else has seen them.:D

Are they articulated? Moving arms and legs? Or just little PVC Action statues?

I might just have to have me a hankerin' for some MickyD's...

They have a wrist articulation for swinging action. Their arms move too. They rock.

My stepson got one while at his dads house this weekend. They aren't bad looking figures. If you like MOTU then I suggest you get them.

Yeah, the articulation on He-man is pretty good (Rocks). I thought Skeletor could have been better, his head isn't quite big enough for his body. The rest of them are not too bad from the looks of the display at McDonalds. I'll have to wait till I pick them up for my final judgement.:D

These are probably the best happy meal toys that I've seen. Almost as playable as the regular figures.

I went in to get one for my daughter and they were "Sold Out" and she was forced to get a crappy niknak figure instead. Niknak figures have moved onto my pet peeve list, right next to the fingerbikes. :mad:

I had another Happy Meal tonight and snagged me a Skeletor! woohoooo! So, now I have He-Man and Skeletor. It would be funny if this worked just like it does in the toy aisle and He-Man and Skeletor were the only figures you could ever actually get. :crazed: I have to agree about the playability on these. Looking at the list, the only character I feel sorry for is Man-at-Arms. He only comes with a shield apparently. That's no good if he actually wants to fight back or something. ;)

Are these MOTU happy meal figs anywhere near being in scale with SW figs?

Naknak's suck. My kids have them and I hate them. The happy meal box is more fun than those things.

They are a little bigger than 3 3/4 inch, I'd say 4 inch figures approx. Very nice detail on He-Man, the rest are O.K., I'd really like Man-at-Arms if the articulation on the shield arm was better and not a permanent feature. :D

Niknak. Naknak. Whatever. They blow...

My son got Beast Man & Skeletor over the weekend. They are great!

I got all eight. Awesome.

Got Orko today. At first we thought he was lame, but then figured that if you wound him up and set him just right you could make him do a little dance. We laughed and then promptly went back to thinking he was lame.

My local McDs are running out of stock on these ... so get 'em while you can.
