One of the most inspired works by Four Horsemen Toy Studio is Mattel´s Masters of the Universe modern series Buzz-Off. Spectacular detail of a curious figure that finally comes to life after two decades as a maggot (by comparison).
I must admit I loved the vintage Buzz-Off figure. Better put, I loved the concept. But after the 200X version came out, I stand in awe.
The detail and insect look is a beauty. "Buzzy" here almost looks a Sectaur now without his mask on. Ball joints allow its wings to move.
The shape of Buzz-Off´s legs and all-around sculpt work gives him a top spot as one of the best remakes for this line. And then again, most of them are true works of art.
Spring-loaded staff shoots the flame missile!
The head sculpting is big league.
Don´t mess with the Buzz man!
