Action Pose – Chief Carnivus vs TMNT

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!

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?

  1. Cat people nipples? Careful, you may be going places you never meant this blog to go.

    I’ve never had any interest in MOTUC or any figures in this scale, but you made Carnivus look bad ass.

    My 1/18 scale werewolf custom needs somebody to keep him on his toes….

  2. I don’t tend to collect action figures, but I had He-Man toys as a kid, so there’s some nostalgia for me in a few of the modern ones from Mattel.

    But there’s not enough of that nostalgia to get me to deal with’s hectic sale days, or the $30ish they charge (after shipping) for most of them, and especially not most of the aftermarket prices that are even more than that.

    But for $10 at Big Lots? Sure!

    And I have to admit, they’re high quality. The paint and sculpts on these put Marvel Legends to shame.

    That Werewolf custom sounds cool. :) I’d be interested in seeing it, if you’ve got any pics to link to.

  3. First of all, that is awesome.

    Second of all, it’s about time I add your sites to my blogroll! O_O

    I had already checked out Quantum Rip and just from the about section, I could tell it’s something I’d like to read, but hadn’t read through the archives yet. That is one heck of an archive to read through, though. :) But it’s in an open tab now so I’ll be reading through it soon.
