From the moment this figure was revealed at last year's Comic-Con, fans have been waiting impatiently for Trap Jaw to release. Seven long months later, the wait is finally over and Skeletor's coolest looking henchman has finally been unleashed as part of MattyCollector.com's "Club Eternia" monthly subscription series.
The Four Horsemen have truly blown it out of the water with the new Trap Jaw figure in regards to sculpting details and tooling. The character's original look from the Filmation series is rendered flawlessly onto the highly articulated heroic buck body which has become a staple of the MOTUC toy line thus far.
Trap Jaw features the highest percentage of new tooling since Man at Arms which makes the figure stand out significantly among the other MOTUC figures and also expands the possibility of customization options in the line as well.
The Trap Jaw figure offers collectors a 2-in-1 bonus by including additional pieces that allow you to change the figure's appearance from Kronis to Trap Jaw. This was a huge nod to the Mike Young 200X animated series which revealed how Trap Jaw's pre-cybernetic alter-ego Kronis looked.
Trap Jaw also includes three interchangeable arm attachments based on the classic cartoon which can be conveniently hooked onto the rings on opposite sides of his belt.
Trap Jaw features the following accessories and interchangeable parts:
- Cybernetic Right Arm
- Kronis Arm
- Kronis Head
- Trap Jaw Head
- Cybernetic Arm Attachments (3)
- Removable Shoulder Harness
- Removable Belt
This figure is now completely sold out. I suspect, that aside from the web order fiasco that occurred on February 16th, several people ordering extras of this figure in order to have a separate Kronis and Trap Jaw supported the fast sell-out. Without a shadow of a doubt, Trap Jaw is by far one of the best MOTUC releases in the line so far and an absolute must-have for fans of the series.
