It Kame from the Toy Chest: Klone Ninja needs his own personality.

To BE fair, he eventually got it after being a Klone Ninja and a Kano Klone. The toy is sadly stuck on the Scorpion Klone era.
I am talking about Tobias Boon spelled backwards.
Bi Han, the original Sub Zero was killed and returned as the shadowy wraith Noob Saibot. His first appearance was in Mortal Kombat II, where he was a Scorpion Klone.
He blends well in
the dark.

Articulation:
This is the third time I go through this buck... And I still haven't gotten Reptile. The articulation is similar to the other Ninja.
5.0
Paint and Sculpt:
For an all black Ninja, Storm went out of their way to make him pop. Smoky translucent plastic for the flesh areas, flat and glossy blacks for his outfit and a bit of gray weathering on his padding to make him pop. The Sculpt is literally Scorpion. Apply what I said to him here.
5.0

Accessories:
Literally the same as Scorpion... Noticing a trend here yet?
- 2 roped kunai
- 2 flame effects
- 1 extra facemask
- 7 extra hands
Extra skull head
-2 bloody decapitation effects
I kinda wish we had gotten an original fireball as his UMK3 version, or at least Reptile's force all in smoky translucent plastic to be a bit more in line with "True Noob" but due to the amount of accessories
Easy 5.0
Overall:
Flawless 5.0 for Noob Saibot. Like I mentioned in the accessories section, I kinda wish he was MORE than a Scorpion Klone.

It came from the toy chest: With fabulous mini comics powers.

The second Power-Con exclusive three pack is full of variants. This pack had the Blow dryer instructions insert, that the Snakemen lacked.

Again, I'll point out that these two Power-Con sets had some issues, due to the short window of time that S7 had to make the figures in time for Power-Con and the factory issues they have. I feel that Power-Con gave too much to do to Super7 in too little time. I also feel that Super7 bit a bit more than they could chew on this time. Hopefully the delays on wave one will allow them to avoid mistakes like those in these figures.
Unable to
Hold his sword
Adam needs the
Cave of Power
To transform into
He-Man...

Now let's begin to talk about the figure for this review... *Checks title* OK, so Prince Adam finally got a card but not a single card, sadly. At least his name is there, amirite?
This is the DC Mini series take on Adam who was pretty much a douche...

Articulation:
Standard MOTUC articulation but with super tight shoulders. His thighs are looser than Frosta's reputation.
4.0

Paint and Sculpt:
The head looks off as heck. I can't put my finger on it, but there's something off on it. Not sure if it's the mismatched coolers between head and torso or if the Oo-Larr head mold got damaged, but there is something off-putting on this Sculpt. On a more positive note, Adam can holster his sword on his tunic... Ultimate Prince Adam is looking like a nice idea now.
3.5
Always the peacemaker,
eh Lacan?

Accessories
Power Sword...
2.5

Overall:
I wish that I was able to give him a better score, but the Sculpt issues and lack of accessories... A repainted Randor goblet would've been nice for Douche Adam. 3.33 is the final score on him. Hopefully, the next two won't be such downers.
