Action Figure of the Week – Trapjaw

Trapjaw

Its funny to me that someone would dress up at some convention as Trapjaw and Evil-Lynn from the He-Man Masters of the Universe cartoon/comic.

Trapjaw

Side of the Ride:  Evil

Answers To:  Skeletor

Main Weapon:  Various

I always seemed to like this character even though he was evil.  I always tended to lean towards the good guys.  He’s as colorful as a pimp’s clothing to say the least.  He has a plethera of attachements for his right arm.  You see, when he was a young lad he got in a fight with a duck billed Platypus and it mangled his arm so bad that Dr. House decided he needed to get it amputated…….just kidding.  I have no idea how or why he has only one good arm.  His “bad arm” if you will is Pure Badness to say the least.  During his time on the cartoon I’ve seen the man have swords, guns/lasers, a laser bow, etc…you get the point.  Whatever applied for that episode, he had an attachment.  If the dude was in an episode of  “The Girls Next Door” he would have an attachment that would………well, you get the drift. 

He debuted in the cartoon in the very first episode of He-Man called “Diamond Ray of Disappearance” and even appeared the cartoon “She-Ra” Princess of Power.  All in all, he was one of the villains that stuck out in my mind back in the day.  Oh…..and I had the action figure too.  I’m sure he died a firery death though.  <sigh>

…..and yes, I had this action figure when I was young.
