Most of the toys in my collection are tiny plastic giant robots, but every now and then I come across an action figure that’s that’s too awesome to pass up.
Especially if it was only $10 at Big Lots.
Chief Carnivus from the Masters of the Universe Classics line is one such action figure. While I dig the 200x He-Man show, Carnivus didn’t do much outside of being a diplomat, so I basically bought this because it’s a badass lionman. Chief Carnivus also has great articulation, sweet armor and cape, and a weapon that seems to homage the Sword of Omens from Thundercats.
And I knew exactly what I was going to do with Chief Carnivus…
Put him in a TMNT display!
HAIL TO THE CHIEF!

Raphael really is posed like that, balanced on one foot and leaping from Donatello’s shoulder. :)
The exaggerated proportions of both Nickelodeon’s TMNT and Mattel’s Masters of the Universe Classics actually blend really nicely, and since I prefer the Turtles to be shorter the scale is just about right.
I mixed toylines as a kid anyway, so there’s some nostalgia in there too.
So, dear readers, did you mix toylines when you were a kid?
Do you mix them now?
Did you notice Chief Carnivus has nipples? Should he have had more?
