While not the smartest member of He-Man entourage, Rammy was a mainstay of the original show and no MOTU collection is complete without him. He comes with an update of his classic versions' axe and a kind of weird alternate head. I'm assuming it's inspired by the 2001 updated cartoon. It's just an ugly head sporting a metal yarmulke. Needless to say that extra head is going straight in the accessories box.
Ram Man is so large that Mattel had to create a special, larger packaging just to hold him! I don't have a previous figure's packaging handy to compare, but you can see what it looks like by itself.
While I love the updated version of his axe, I always picture Ram Man fighting with just his head. Luckily, Mattel sculpted a handy axe holder right on his back!
As you can see below, Mattel's attention to detail continues with this excellent figure. The sculpt is great and the paint apps are equal in quality. The glossy paint really sells the metal look of his helmet. His face guards really limit the head motion, but who cares? He looks awesome!
Here's that weird extra head I mentioned earlier. Well-sculpted, but weird.
Here are a few shots of Ram Man with his friends to show you a size comparison.
Here is my new Ram Man standing next to my vintage Ram Man. I'd say they've made a few improvements.
Now it comes down to it...Ram Man vs Juggernaut. Who stops who? Tell me your thoughts in the comment section!
I'm really excited to finally add Ram Man to my MOTU Collection. I now have almost every character that I really wanted for this collection, but it literally wouldn't have been complete without this figure. It took them several years to get around to him, but it was worth the wait. Nice job Mattel!
