We geeks are a decisive bunch. We’ll take sides over favorite properties, characters, and even versions of that same character (we’re lookin’ at YOU Batman!). However, there are some things we can all seem to agree on: Masters of the Universe rocked our socks when we were young; and Robot Chicken will make you laugh, at least once, per episode… even if it’s under your breath. Surely, one of the big reasons for the chuckles came from the sketch involving Mo-Larr the Eternian Dentist as he terrorized Skeletor in that familiar stop-motion style Robot Chicken is known best for. Well, get ready all you lovers of action figures, evil skull-faced sorcerers, and irreverent humor; cause Mo-Larr is comin’ back! Not only in new episodes (yep, plural!), but his action figure is also being reissued on Mattel’s Mattycollector website!
Here’s all the details, along with some great videos, straight from “Matty” himself:
Run, Skeletor, run … Mo-Larr, Eternian Dentist, is back in two brand new episodes of Robot Chicken! The first airs during the Season 5 premiere on Cartoon Network Sunday, January 9th. The second one airs the following Sunday, January 16th and reveals the secret origin of Mo-Larr. Heck, it’s so secret, even we don’t know what it is!
To celebrate the big event, we’ve been given the go-ahead to sell stock that was originally earmarked for Cartoon Network. So if you missed it the first time, here’s a second chance to get the special Mo-Larr vs Skeletor® packaged set on Monday, January 10, 2011, at 9 a.m. PT (noon ET)!
Packed with unwilling patient Skeletor®, this is the identical set that was first sold at 2010 San Diego Comic-Con, then here on MattyCollector.com. Skeletor® has a head with missing tooth and comes with his Havok Staff, Power Sword®, and Half Power Sword®. Mo-Larr has five instruments of torture ?? er, um, we mean assorted dental tools, including @#%## drill and floss. Please note, as a special convention item, this set is NOT included with 2011 Club Eternia™ subscriptions.
Exactly what does it take to create a real toy from a character who only existed on TV? Go behind the plastic to find out in these videos on the making of Mo-Larr!
