Mega Construx Pro Builders Stratos Action Figure From Masters Of The Universe Review

Today we have a review of Stratos from the Masters of The Universe line as part of the Mega Construx Pro Builders wave 1 release. Stratos was originally released with Scare Glow as the last Mega Construx Heroes wave released. I never saw either of those two figures on the store shelves so I don't know if this release of Stratos is identical to the original release or has been changed like Skeletor was.

When I was a kid I had a Stratos action figure as a kid and while I do think he has an interesting look he just wasn't a favorite of mine. The reason for this I believe is that his only power was the ability to fly, which in the real world I would love to have, but in the Masters of the Universe world, there are many different ways to fly that a Wind Raider pretty much removes Stratos' functionality.

Anyway, Stratos has the standard articulation that all of the Mega Consrux figures do. He comes with 27 pieces including himself, his armor, base, and a staff. In the original 80s toy, the 200x toy, and the MOTUC toy Stratos didn't come with a staff as a weapon but I'm sure they didn't want to release him without a weapon so I'm guessing this stuff is the Emerald Staff of Avion which I'm ok with Stratos having.

I'm sure most of you reading this have built a Lego set here or there over the years so I'm sure you all know the feeling when you can't find a piece to finish the build. Well, I can't find one of the pieces to Stratos' staff. I opened it over a table and I've looked everywhere around the area and I can't find it anywhere. I'm not going to say he didn't come with the piece but for the life of m,e I can't find it anywhere so if you see the staff missing a piece you'll know why.

His backpack's gots jets!

Overall I'm happy with Stratos, his likeness is excellent and I like the look of his staff. He's another fine addition to the Mega Construx series and I give him a 7 out of 10.
