No, it's not a My Little Pony character... Listen to Princess Sunbutt!
But I wouldn't call him a Beeeytch who likes Mmmmmm Bananas!
I'm talking about the Barbarian Ape, Gygor. Evil
Something something Evil Lyn released the dude. (In my Fanon, Gygor becomes EL's Bodyguard.)
I know I was VERY against the guy in MOTUC, but he exists, was a gap in my collection. Found one at a reasonable price, so I bought him.
So, here I am reviewing the Ape... who is VERY HEAVY for a Rotocast Torso BTW
This buck is NOT THE NORMAL MOTUC BUCK... This leads me to test his articulation. If he can pull off two Gorilla specific poses, he'd be a success.
Pose 1: Fail! OK, so he can ALMOST Pull it off if it wasn't for the V-Cut feet and no knee Articulation. Surprisingly the feet are balljointed.
|Evil Lyn: Now Gygor, is it with a soft G|
or a hard G sound? If you behave
you'll get a lot more bananas in chip
Gygor: *Gorilla noises*
Pose 2: Fail! a Gorilla toy who can't do the Gorilla chest bump should be ashamed of itself... Bandai was able to pull off a Kong that can do it... then again this was BanDai Japan.
Paint and Sculpt:
He looks very Ape-like. Similarities to Grodd and other Apes sculpted by the FourHorsemen are purely coincidental. there seems to be some slight slop on mine. Luckily it's covered by the cape.
|Me: A little help here, Oo-Larr, he's going|
to kill me! HURRY!
Oo-Larr: By the Goddess! It's an Ape!
I must ride it!
Me: Just get him off of me!
Me: Eat Laser you damn dirty ape!
Oo-Larr: That's racist!
Me: I wasn't talking about Gygor!
Damn! I can't believe I went so long without doing a Congo reference...
I must amend a mistake on this review. My dear assistant, Spike noticed something that I did not. After stripping him of his armor and reassembling his feet (after they popped off on their own)
He CAN do the Knuckle Walk pose... It's not perfect, but it's close enough. This means that his score must change accordingly.
Updated Articulation score: 3.5 because he CAN Pull off the Knuckle Walk. Sadly the chest pounding is still off limits and that killed all my Amy Good Gorilla jokes.
This new Articulation sculpt means that his final score needs revisiting. 3.33 is the new score for him.
