Hasbro Hero Mashers Monsters Bone Thrasher Action FigureI know I'm getting old because I'm seeing trends in life repeat themselves. The Hero Mashers 6-inch tall Bone Thrasher is a more or less late 00s skater, which looks a lot like a late 1980s/early 1990s skater, except the hat is forward facing on this green-skinned skeletal zombie. It's sort of fascinating how this figure could be from 1987 or from 2007, but that's not nearly as interesting as how this figure was developed for America and ultimately dumped overseas. So far, only in Europe. Specifically, England. (Also thank Mr. Ayres for your kind assistance/donation here.) I didn't see any of this one show up on Amercian eBay, so at one per case it's in short supply. Naturally I opened it.

As the "Hero Mashers" brand fades a little more each year, the whole Monster concept put various monsters with other concepts to make something new - and on top of that, you can mix and match parts with other compatible Hasbro figures. It's a great idea for a 6-inch action figure line, and it'd have been even better if it kept rolling.

Mr. Vulf can split in to about 8 pieces with 15 points of articulation.

The sculpting is decent - I'm not as inspired as the other figures, but you do have warty flesh and exposed bones, not to mention very modern bright blue tennis shoes with yellow soles. A silver kneepad covers what is left of a leg, and there are some pretty nifty monster skate company designs on his shirt and on the bottom of his skate deck. The head is pretty fancy, with ugly long blue hair, missing teeth, and a tongue sticking out - clearly inspired by a rich history of the likes of Ed "Big Daddy" Roth and numerous gross-out toys which would follow in the 1980s. And tons of other stuff. It's a custom, clearly. The black shirt, green arms, and exposed bone make the figure look like a pre-made mash-up more than most of the others, with distinctive body parts and clothing coming together to build a disjointed yet youthful looking member of the undead. While he isn't a riff on classic monsters as much as the others, the strange level of originality here does impress.

His only accessory is decorated nicely and can be carried in his hand without a fight - but it's kinda cruddy. The skateboard is painted very nicely, with a purple top with a blue bottom featuring some decent graphics. The wheels are painted on, but don't turn - it's just one big (cheap) solid piece. As such it's great for holding, as it looks like a budget Tech Decks toy. The texture on top is fantastic, plus it has a foot peg - so he can stand on top. Balancing him can be tricky, but this is true of actual skateboards as well.

Bone Thrasher pops apart at the elbows, hips, knees, and neck so you can switch parts with other Hero Mashers toys. He's surprisingly sturdy and holds together well, with a decent level of painted detail and a bite taken out of his forearm. Some exposed muscle under his right shoulder amps up the gross-out factor, although he's bright-eyed and seemingly happy to be off to where ever he's going.

As far as I know, this figure will be the last of this line I can review since a bunch of other ones never actually got made. This was the last one I got, but it's no less impressive than the rest. It just looks like a stellar fit for the youth element, what with the hat and the brim going up and garish hair. I wouldn't make this the first figure you get from this line, unless of course you see one for sale in which case grab it. But you probably won't ever see it outside England, so just keep doing what you're doing.
