In the first MASTERS MATCH (read all about this new concept at the end of the post), Tri-Klops beat Man-E-Faces. In this 2nd playroom tournament, martial arts fighter JITSU opposes iron-fist FISTO. Who will dominate?
Both figures share the same character trait: They can both be considered martial arts fighters (the karate punch with the right hand).
Fisto’s fist is some cool action feature if you ask me. As a kid, I would love to have him smash evil warriors. Also, loved to unplug that fist and have it throw him at other figures. I always imagined that fist to be cyborg of some kind. So real super powers going on there. 4 out of 5 points (4/5).
Jitsu’s evil hand is also awesome. Slightly enlarged and shining golden, it tells a story of one super weapon. His karate hand sure will destroy. However, in the MotU world, I deem a brute fist blow much more devastating than the edge of a hand. 3 out of 5 points (3/5).
I considered Fisto’s sword always to be a bit too long and therefore clumsy (3/5),whereas I rate Jitsu’s curved sword more agile in combat (4/5).
PPE: Personal Playroom Expertise
I had Fisto early as a figure. That gives him an advantage. Great play experience there (however, I had the Spanish/Italian version of him and that plastic was poor quality-wise. The fist would break in two pieces all the time. Luckily, glue could save the day ;-). 4/5
Jitsu was added later to my collection. I did not play with that character as often as with Fisto. However at that time, all things martial arts very hip, so I liked his character depiction. 3/5
AND THE WINNER IS…:
That was a close one: Fisto 11 points, Jitsu 10 points. Congratulations, Fisto, mighty heroic warrior! 🙂
