This huuurrr little fella is named Gwildor and he’s one of my least favorite toys of all time. Why, you may ask, would I start out this Instagram feed with a toy that I really don’t care for? I really don’t have a great answer for that other than this is what I got in the mail today for an extremely reasonable price from the great and powerful @fartoys_vintage.
💀 Anyways, Gwildor here is from the Masters of the Universe line from Mattel, and came along after appearing in the wack AF MOTU movie from Cannon Films. I’m pretty sure he only made it into the toy line because Orko cost too much money to practically put in the movie. No? Prove me wrong. 💀 Gwildor is pretty much presented as an absent-minded, bumbling boob, but he’s also supposed to be wise, intelligent and good-hearted, with little fear. Doesn’t make a lot of sense but go figure. 💀 He comes with the Cosmic Key, a complex device with numerous switches and buttons, which can be used to shoot sonic waves, make sounds, play music and display light patterns, all of which serve to transport the wielder to the location of their choice. As far as accessories go, this is right up there with Dr. Mindbender’s weird dental drill/anal probe. 💀 Unlike nearly every other action figure from the MOTU line, Gwildor has no action feature. He just sits there, waiting to be rescued or thrown into the Slime Pit. Maybe put in Trap Jaw’s BDSM dungeon. I dunno... but I needed him to complete the line, so here we are. #gwildor #vintagetoys #actionfigures #toys #mastersoftheuniverse #motu #heman #mattel #matteltoys #eternia #cosmickey #gwildoryousuck #bythepowerofgreyskull #bythepowerofgrayskull #ihavethepower #vintagetoys #80stoys #1980s #80s #retrotoys #thetoysthatmadeus #itcamefrombeyondplanetx
