Review: Spy Monkey Creations Doppelganger Armory Series 1 Accessory Pack

In this day and age it's hard to be delighted, and it's even harder for someone to make something awesome that I never knew I wanted. The Spy Monkey Creations Armory Series 1 managed to do just that, mashing up Glyos pegs and pieces to create large weapons sized, ideally, for Masters of the Universe Classics from Mattel.

This is the kind of product that begs-- no, demands-- that you play with it. By purchasing this, you're guaranteeing yourself about an hour or two of fun from whipping out your old figures and seeing who looks good with what. And if you want to swap around blades and customize your own stuff? Well, it's basically a LEGO set that builds swords for your other figures.
