S3 08/18!Archive:https://archive.nyafuu.org/toy/search/subject/%2Fmotu%2F/Discord:https://discord.gg/gawhFwRdypThread Question:What's your ideal interpretation of Two Bad?
When they recolored Whiplash's head purple and attached it to a scaly torso and right arm, the result looked a lot like Badra.
>>9962172this motherfucker will never not be the coolest
>>9962100Best OP this year.
>>9962172He looks sick as hell, but they should've used Mekaneck's neck. Feel like he's more machine than flesh inside.
>>9962172>>9962188>>9962279I wish I could like Terroar as much as everyone else seems to, but I just hate Whiplash's stupid face so much. Literally any other head save him.
>>9962279More authentic to original intended toy that would reause Rattlor's body, including the neck.
>>9962252Ha, ha, what if he tied Leech's mouth shut and kept filling him up with water so his stomach got all big, ha ha, that'd be weird huh? ha ha
>>9962172i will always regret not getting this 3 pack when i could
>>9962286I feel the same. Clawful's would have been decent
>>9962252I demand more pictures of Leech voring cute girls.For science.
>>9962331Do not summon him
is this is becoming a fetish thread?Now someone will appeal to crossdressing/tg fetish and put He-Man's head on Teela's bod.
>>9962385I mean, way back there was an anon who would have BG Teela sacrificed to the Prometheus Trilobite tentacle creature
Teela a garbage post Adora, best MOTU girl
>>9962385Shame they never made a Dream Mistress figure. I wonder, does this mean Hordak is secretly trans?
Now that the dust has settled, out of all the new reveals, how many are on your pull list?(Assume you will have absolutely no problem acquiring all you want regardless of how they sell it)For me it's Grizzlor, Skeleton Warriors, Tung Lashor, maybe Kobra Khan depending on how I feel closer to his release, Masterverse Pig-Head, Two-Bad and Roboto
>>9962286I like both whiplash and terroar so its a win win for me>>9962311terroar with clawful's head would be too close to destructor in my opinion. at the very least I'd accept a random snakeman head or even the dragon blaster one.
>>9962292there's no way matty will avoid the easy parts reusue man, we'll get them anon
>>9962432snakes, mini comics trapjaw, whiplash, and thunder punch
>>9962448Destructor may be my favorite of that group. I like the idea of a member of Clawful's race becoming the Lord of Destruction in Skeletor's absence.
>>9962425i vote we name scareglow's new waifu "scream queen"
>>9962459>I like the idea of a member of Clawful's race becoming the Lord of Destruction in Skeletor's absence.i find the idea funny honestly. these grumpy crab men thanos'ing eternia wouls be pretty chuckle worthy. speaking of fuerza t though, if origins does deliver on them they better all retain their clow in the dark eyes and teeth dammit.
>>9962432>For me it's Grizzlor, Skeleton Warriors, Tung Lashor, maybe Kobra Khan depending on how I feel closer to his release, Masterverse Pig-Head, Two-Bad and RobotoGrizzlor, Kamo Khan, Skeleton Warriors, Masterverse Pig-Head and call him a giant demon who can only be killed by silver arrows.Maaaybe Rattlor and Tung Lashor, because Origins produces a lot of FOMO (remember Tri-Klops?).MV Two-Bad looks fantastic, but if I get him it'll be like committing to a third scale (Mega was my first MotU line as an adult). I'll probably wait for his price to drop and see if I can scoop up discounted core characters to display with him.
>>9962463One time I came up with an OC whose feature would be a sound chip thst made her really scream and I called her "Banshreek".
>>9962331>I demand more of Leech doing something horrible.>For science.Reminder that in Entrapta's first appearance, Leech called her "my friend."
>>9962491A Horde fidget cube?
Does anyone know where I can get the Super Impulse MOTU wave 2 or gift set? I know that they're starting to show up somewhere, but the giftset's been out of stock on Amazon ever since it went up and no idea on this next wave.
>>9962499>A Horde fidget cube?The Classics/Origins head made my headcanon for Leech that he's a huge extrovert, but maybe he also has autism he manages with a Horde fidget cube.
redpillme on faker, bros.
>>9962711He's Eternia's most cunning master of disguise
>>9962735>¡Hola amigos! ¡Onions yo, tu amado campeón He-Man!>What did he say?>Oh you know He-Man, always such a practical joker.
>>9962711>redpillme on faker, bros.Eh, you can skip him if you're on the fence. He's redundant in displays and has very little /co/ material, so it all depends on how you bring your imagination to toys.I have Mega Construx Faker and Battle Armor Faker, and was inspired by the compatible Terminator exoskeleton to come up with a robot factory in Snake Mountain that's produced a subseries with synthetic flesh (see also: closet of Fakers in his Origins mini-comic).Lord Faker and Duplicat are also fun, but would set you back big bucks.
>>9962711The masterverse faker is kinda like an eternian terminator, so that's cool imo.
>>9962711I just like the colors, the concept is fun but as far as owning him it's kidna dumb since it's jsut blue he-man with skeletor's armor.
>>9962477"Ban-Shriek" is such a good name it sounds like a character that should already exist
>>9962234Thanks, it was tricky to find side view shots of two bad. Funny thing is I had to mirror it so they were facing each other. They're never referred as Badra and Tuvar, it's always the other way around. Not sure why.I really would love to see an interpretation of them with Beavis and Butthead like personalities where they get along great or bicker and smack each other when something comes between them. Also would be a funny potential bootleg with Beavis and Butthead heads and maybe AC/DC and Metallica on their armor that or the royalty free merchandise Death Rock and Skull.
>>9962432I'm a little less excited for the snake men since the gimmicks are less than ideal, I'm hoping I can get grizzlor and camo khan so I'm not as excited for origins as I am masterverse. Bat lyn and shadow weaver really caught my eye, honestly I like all the masterverse sdcc reveals.
>>9962969>I'm a little less excited for the snake men since the gimmicks are less than ideal,I'd REALLY like to skip the Snake Men who are losing their vintage gimmicks, but there's also FOMO that they won't get made for Masterverse or Mega, meaning no pic related for me.
OTOH, it just takes the gimped Origins Rattlor to complete this Force Squad.OTOOH, they might not make Origins Shadow Weaver since she's coming to Masterverse.
The Virgin Webstor>needs grappling hook to climb walls>claims to be spider; doesn't spin his own webs>only 4 limbs instead of 8>can't afford his own tooling, just uses Skeletor's body>part of a loose collection of randos that never accomplish goal>Evil Master of Escape; runs away from fights>"I miss Kobra Khan".>catgirls hate himThe Chad Leech>can just walk up walls, no assistance required>lives up to his namesake, will suck the life out of anything>actually has 4 limbs when he shouldn't have any>lots of unique body parts, stands out from his peers>an elite member of the Evil Horde; has conquered countless kingdoms>Evil Master of Power Suction; you can't escape his grasp as he drains your strength>has many friends, but doesn't rely on any one of them to complete him>catgirls love him
That Kol-Darr comic mentioned "light and dark side of Eternia". Was that a common concept? I only remember it in 2002 MYP cartoon.
>>9963078>catgirls love himSeriously though, this is part of why I'm a Horde fanboy. The imagination the designers poured into all-new tooling wipes the floor with what came before.FFS, the Evil Warriors equivalent of Mantenna is merely Tri-Klops.
Cool, I should have kol dar in a few days. He has a cool hat, unlike some other dars, and a beard.
>>9963038I know what you mean, it's not a fomo thing for me but I did say I would attempt to complete the full retail origins line. Warts and gimped gimmicks included.
>>9963199So every last naked Stratos while you're missing out on Grizzlors and whatnots?
>>9963201Lol, yes I will corner the nekkid bird man market! Nyah nyah nyah! I just told myself don't stress over power con or even rise of evil type exclusives, it just spoils the fun of collecting for me personally. I'll still try to get grizzlor and Khan of course but not if it makes me dislike masters of the universe, it's not worth it.
>>9963207Very healthy approach. Thumbs up.
Reminded me that I really like the toy-styled Catra design much more than ANY of her other ones. It's cute and sexy.
>>9963214It's a cute mashup of "human dressed as cat" from DC's Catwoman and the fur and barbarian shield of a MotU design.
>>9963214Kinda looks like wonder woman there
>>9963038>FOMOIt's only fomo if you have zero complaints.Like, I bought Ninjor because of FOMO even though he's not even close to being a favorite because I thought he was a perfect rendition of the character.But I have zero regrets in skipping Stinkor because I had multiple gripes, even though he's a character I like much more than Ninjor.So, yeah, I'm not gonna feel like I've missed anything skipping Rattlor, because he doesn't have the biggest selling point.
Personalities I give my MotU characters:He-Man: Mostly Filmation, but he actually uses his weapons.Orko: FilmationTeela: don't have a strong sense of herMan-E-Faces: CGI-inspired, but he didn't raise TeelaSorceress: Filmation/minicomics. Not like there's a real difference.MAA: FilmationRoboto: Duncan's son/Teela's brotherRam Man: don't have a strong sense of himClamp Champ: great fighter and cocky about it, fun-loving, easily confused outside his domainBuzz Off: jive Stratos from CGIStratos: Sean Connery playing a flying monkey completely seriously.Mekaneck: quiet, reliable soldier, doting father. Should figure out what the deal is with Philip's mother.Fisto: morally-ambiguous nature-lover who follows He-Man's morals when they're in the same place.Green Goddess: mystic guardian who started stepping on Teela-Na's toes when Adam became He-Man, so she moved out of Castle Grayskull for a while to aid other heroes, like FistoMoss Man: Not sure. I like "mythic nature spirit", but hate that he's millions of years old, meaning nothing from Eternia's past can ever surprise He-Man unless he ignores Moss Man's stories like he's Grandpa Simpson.
This Kol-Darr is actually a lot better than I expected, he's a pretty damn solid entry. So far out of him, comic Tri-Klops, shiny Sun-Man and Wun-Dar I think Kol-Darr is the best Creations figure.But candy colored Tri-Klops is still pretty damn slick.
>>9963250Skeletor: I think we know there's one right answer here (Langella's Skeletor is fantastic, but I don't associate it with the '82 design). And yes, he's Adam's uncle: I have the Origins figure to prove it!Beast Man: nature red in tooth and clawTrap Jaw: Skeletor's first recruit. Has mixed feelings about him. Techie.Scare Glow: Lord of the UnderworldEvil-Lyn: evil daughter of the virtuous Faceless One. Fell in love with Keldor. He returned her love until the day he became the undead Skeletor. It still took her many years to start betraying him.Jitsu: honorable martial arts fanatic who was only evil for a while because he lost face to Fisto.Clawful: fun-loving sociopathMer-Man: Just look at his face! Only on Skeletor's side because he told him "I'm the rightful heir to the human throne and I'd ban polluting the ocean."Ninjor: assassin time-tossed by that spell Skeletor cast. Fish out of water who went independent and takes jobs from Skeletor and others.Webstor: Filmation/minicomics. Wishes Kobra Khan was here.Tri-Klops: D&D Fighter with a magic helmet. Only joins Evil Warriors when contracted.Faker: hard to say, as there are severalStinkor: 200X
>>9963250Hordak: both Filmation and the post-Hiss minicomics are canon to me. His relationship with Adora is also clear and three-dimensional in my head.Grizzlor: savage Eternian cryptid who was found by the Horde during the failed invasion of Eternia and learned enough of high-tech civilization to wear shoes and become Governor of Beast Island. Like if Tarzan was an ape instead of an English peer.Leech: his power is terrifying on-duty, but he's a fun-loving extrovert. Possibly just a baby of the Fright Zone monster, which would explain certain childish behaviors like holding a stuffed animal in public while making puns.Mosquitor: again, terrifying power, but becomes chill or even cowardly when sated.Mantenna: tough one. The overwhelming majority of his personality comes from Filmation, but pure silliness can be hard to swallow outside of slice-of-life photo stories.
>>9963300>we know there's one right answer hereIs there? I've never liked Filmation Skeletor that much. I think the recent DC comics have been my favorite take on Skeletor. >Adam's uncleAnd I like Keldor even less.
Found this yesterday. Should I open it?
>>9963334You know that Hollywood needs to run wild on Eternia, Brother.
Some motherfucker hid this but I'm more clever than him. I always look for hidden figures on Walmart.
>>9963451Jokes on you he also licked it.
>>9963451This looks surprisingly decent. But I can't bring myself to spring for it when I have two Masterverse Skeletors, Origins wave 1 Skeletor, and BA Skeletor with god knows what other Skeletors to come. I love Skeletor, but this one just isn't quite good enough for me to add to the Skelepile.
>>9963461I unironically prefer some of the Spanish names over the English ones.Doblor and Trompo in particular.
>>9963463I like his face.
>>9963582We're getting that face and his new loincloth/greaves (and different but not new forearms) with Snake Armor Skeletor who looks more interesting, so I'll wait.
>>9963602That's why I skipped 200x He-man. I like his snake armor look more.
Too bad the sword can't split in two.
>>9963334Yeah, I like when people open toys I don't. If the resell value is an issue I wouldn't worry much, it's pretty easy to find now it seems.
>>9963692>your just gonna impale he-fool with that thing right.....RIGHT?!
>>9963582I don't mind it. I'm holding out for Laser Light, depending on how obtrusive the gimmick turns out. That's the next Skeletor I'm interested in.
>>9963645Damn he's actually pretty good looking in hand.
>>9963772will it be a ne or a ni there hulkster
I lied. Looks like I'm going to need to buy a Green Lyn for my evil warriors display now.
>>9963820That depends on if they want to date Brooke or come into Hogan's Beach restaurant brother.
>>9963861i mean who wouldnt want to eat lunch at the hulksters place
The 2002 series is being officially uploaded to youtube.https://toynewsi.com/news.php?itemid=43898&utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=facebook
>>9963463Do what I've done and create a dedicated section alongside your regular MOTU collection that hosts nothing but Skeletor variations from ALL the different lines, and you'll be golden.
>>9963883Looks likes they've started taking down the unofficial playlist I've been watching that had all the episodes.
>>9963903>it's realFuck. Well if they upload the whole thing I won't mind loosing the ilegal ones.
>>9963883Problem with official uploads is they can pull them down again when they feel like its inconvenient having them up.
>>9963334Yes especially if you got extra HWO armor
just geting into this line anything else as good as scar glow thats not heman or skeletor got there classics dont want to replace those.
>>9964046forgot the pic fuck
>>9964050wrong thread there anon?
>>9964052No they're referencing He-Man dinosaurs
>>9964055ah okay got it kinda a casual he-man fan mostly hear for the cool toys.
>>9964052>>9964057https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eNJkZQD30yMthis should give you some context
>>9964057It's okay they're kinda obscure
>>9964073oh okay thats rad there doing those then
>>9964077the most i know if the bad guys all look awesome and scareglow is the raddest.
Anyone else buying Masterverse Jitsu just to put his accessories on Origins Jitsu?
>>9962100>CheckedBut if they don't fall over, I don't want them.
>>9964046>>9964048Stinkor isn't bad. The new NE Beast Man is pretty rad, probably the best Beast Man out of all 3 of the new toylines.
>>9963582The promo shots do him no justice.
Pig bros... we are going home...
>>9964655Congrats big bad pig bros
>>9964655Im happy for you bros, but where the fuck is HE?
>>9964687>>9964674I love that Filmation looked at the fucking sleep paralysis horror that is mantenna and went "NOPE NOPE NOPE" and made him this goofy Horde Orko-esque comic relief who falls into water and has a cute face.
>caved and eventually payed scalper prices for wun darI know im weak...
>>9964693>I love that Filmation looked at the fucking sleep paralysis horror that is mantenna and went "NOPE NOPE NOPE" and made him this goofy Horde Orko-esque comic relief who falls into water and has a cute face.I gather that Lou Scheimer had strong opinions about what was appropriate for young children, and "sleep paralysis alien" was a NOPE NOPE NOPE, as thematically appropriate to the Horde concept as it was.
>>9964655I know, I almost let my impatience get the better of me but thankfully my anxiety wouldn't let me drive the 40 mins to target today. >>9964674Ikr, I got 200x heman coming before mantenna. Just gotta wait it out man. Atleast we know it's worth waiting for.
>>9964100When target puts him on clearance like the origins figure.
Cold blooded killers
I know no one really gives a shit about this set, but I wonder if it's going to show up soon too.Both this and Pig-Head were listed as "3rd quarter", so if he's coming now, maybe we won't have to wait until September.I mainly just want to see the boxart for any cool Easter eggs
>>9964818>any cool Easter eggs
>>9964822He looks like one of the fucking Beanie Baby bunnies.
>>9964818I care, I am loooking forward to her. I don't have a Teela yet.
>>9963463Bro you can never have enough skeletors
>>9964818Why did Teela-Na make MAA keep it secret from Teela that they're mother and daughter? Imagine all the fun outings they could have had with Mom in bird form wearing a jetpack and weapons.
>>9964845I don't have a Teela yet either, but I've never really been sold on her.What will she bring to my collection that I can't get from Sorceress and She-Ra?
>>9964879Because Filmation needed to force drama and mystery to make you give a shit about her.It all falls apart the second you realize they never bothered to give a good justification for why it needed to be a secret.
>>9964818I hope is pig head, 200x skeletor and mantenna also.
>>9962172>new guy but with Trap Jaw's arm
>>9964890He's also meant to have Rattlor's neck.
https://youtu.be/Po1q7Fq8bkkSHAT OUT OF HELL!
My Leech arrives today, very excited.>>9962432Origins: Skeleton Warriors, King Hiss, Kobra Kah, the He-Man 4-packMasterverse: Pig Man, Two-Bad, maybe Sorceress
>>9964884>Because Filmation needed to force drama and mystery to make you give a shit about her.>It all falls apart the second you realize they never bothered to give a good justification for why it needed to be a secret.This is why 15-year-old Sorceress Teela is best Teela.
> Lord Gr'Asp, Snake Trooper and Terroar get released because 0 new parts> We never her Reptilax> Reptilax becomes Karg of Diabolical Snakes team.
Whether you like Ninjor or not, admit it...That logo would look awesome on a shirt.
Who would want Fangor in Origins? I think he's pretty cool.
>>9964965Isn't Reptilax all reused parts too? They just have to make Fang Man for the head and collar
>>9964984There are still some new parts (like weapons or loincloth with tail) and that's assuming they'll do Fang Man.
>>9965033>loincloth with tail)They could always just reuse Saurod's and save themselves some trouble. Since it's his first toy, there's no hard and fast rule for which parts they can and can't use. No precedenceAnd I think it's a pretty safe bet Fang Man is coming. They wouldn't have done Kol Darr if they had no intention of doing other Filmation guys, no way he'll be the only one, and if they're doing others, they're not gonna skip the popular ones
What would you say about He-Man stop-motion show using actual toys?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gdUIE8G8uCI
Imagine full series of that, like animated minicomics Origins has.
>>9965132Better than Revelation.
You know who would be awesome for Origins? Scrollos and Songster. These guys need toys.
>>9965132I like it, before any of the new media released there were a few dozen people on youtube making stop motion origins ads. I could have watched an entire show in that style honestly.
>>9964976he was created by the guy who does most of the art for the Origins packaging so I think there's a chance
>>9964976if I were in charge at mattel I'd give a green light to every snake man under the sun
>>9963334Holy shit does he have velcro just to rip his shirt open?
>>9965191I too want Blast-Attak.
>>9964733Filmation Mantenna looks like one of the Fat Albert kids.
>>9965191Finally some love to King Pythos and his jester.
>>9965191if I were in charge at mattel I'd give a green snake to every sun man under the light
We would get another Nu-Ra toy.
>>9965213The minicomic "King of the Snake Men" alluded to these guys.It would be cool to see the Reptons react to King Hiss returning.
>>9965225Horrified. I bet Hiss would hate his descendants even more than he does mammals for turning into peaceful weaklings. He would basically go there to recruit more troops and slaughtered everyone who isn't with him.
>>9965196I know alot of people have gripes with blast attak being a snakeman despite being a robot, but my only gripe is that he doesnt have any snakey motiefs despite being part of the snakemen. Imagine a revised blast attak (new eternia or otherwise) decorated with snake heads and scale mail.
>>9965182these are great
>>9965216>one snake for every sunman charactersounds like a good deal desu
>>9965241I find it hilariously petty that King Hiss, for whom we have no evidence of understanding technology, claimed to have created a robot his roommate Skeletor had around Snake Mountain.
They should make a King Hiss variant that's yellow in stead of green and call it "king piss"
>>9965223So weird that Noelle's crew used him prominently, by name, without a legal threat.Surprisingly based choice, though.
>>9965241>>9965196These posts trigger me.But at least we all agree Blast-Attak is based, regardless of what faction you want to display him in.
>>9965276>Energy ZoidsI mean if you go by their own appearance in fiction, the Evil Warriors were a faction that at one time consisted of Skeletor, the Snake Men and Twistoid. Blast Attak doesn't even cameo in their minicomic.
>>9965286I was posting more so for the cross sell art underneath...Blast-Attak marketed as an Evil Warrior with Ninjor and Scare Glow.
>>9965291Reminds me how latest Origins listed Pig Head as Rules of Sun.
>>9965064>And I think it's a pretty safe bet Fang Man is coming. They wouldn't have done Kol Darr if they had no intention of doing other Filmation guys, no way he'll be the only one, and if they're doing others, they're not gonna skip the popular onesHow popular IS Fang Man? I thought Strongarm, Icer, and Batros were all more popular, then Fang Man for EW completionism. And Lizzy would be near Strongarm. Also Shokoti seems popular.
>>9965302"Yes! Yes! I am now co-regent of the Sun!"
>>9965312Well, I always hear Fang Man mentioned in the same breath as Strongarm, Icer, Batros and Lizard Man. He was also, iirc, the FIRST Filmation character Classics did, even before uber popular Shsdow Weaver. I think he has a sizable following
>>9965265give the guy a break right, he's been asleep for a millenia! I bet the only reason he keeps blast attak around is because blast makes such a good servant. Skeletor probably giddly gave up blast attak anyways because he already had better robo-minions in guys like faker and trapjaw.
>>9965271Kek, underrated post
>>9964655Fuck yes>>9965286Bros, I don't want to get Viperized
>>9965314>pighead with sun powersMattel better take advantage of this idea and give us a proper variant dammit
I'm still incredibly fond of the idea of mattel going full mandalorian and adapting filmation rattlor, tung lashor, and clawful into new snakemen.
>>9965345So who are you anons going to be for Halloween?
>cgi webstorholy shit, WHERE'S THE TOY MATTEL?
>>9965356>holy shit, WHERE'S THE TOY MATTEL?Seriously. At least with Gary there's an excuse of not being able to sell retailers on that box size/price point (but wouldn't that apply to the CGI Talon Fighter?).
>>9965353Merman, beast man or stinkor. Can't decide between them yet. Which mask are you choosing?
Instagram user yamatojoe posted these this morning
>>9965392I wish she had closed her mouth for the non-masked face, or had her smiling like on the back of the box. Otherwise she looks really good. Looking forward to her!>>9965355>Frogs can walk?!
>>9965355>>I hate amphibians!
>>9965392Hordak looks alright but I'm not that interested in spending deluxe prices for it. I'll wait and see how the Revolution one turns out.
>>9965392Wow she looks better than the promo pics>>9965345Pretty neat
>>9964335okay ill check the beast man out how is the tri-clops the set looks good but i want to get a second option before i track it down
>>9965392Looks better than before! Really like the blue on hordak and she ras mask, better start looking at dollar tree for a stand in swiftwind
>>9965461I'm personally not a fan of the Tri-klops. I do like that he has the cult get-up, and I would buy him and Trap Jaw if Cyber Whiplash and Blast-Attak get made, just so I can display the whole team
>>9965522I want her to take her piercings out, put a load of slime in her mouth, and have it ooze out of the holes.
This shit DOES NOT BELONG HERE
>>9965345I need that Stinkor mask asap.
>>9965605I wonder if it comes with the breathing apparatus?
>>9965635Latex'll last a while if you treat it right.
>>9965605I only see skeletor and beast man at the moment.not sure if that means the rest are sold out or they are dropping them in pairshttps://costumes.com/search?view=boost-pfs-original&q=masters%20of%20the%20universefor 50 bucks I am debating getting a skeletor one but latex rots after a few years so it won't be a permanent part of my collection>>9965636how?
>>9965595im completely certain those posts are directly from the routine board shitter
>>9965645>how?Moisturize every few months with human semen.
>>9965658I mean, that's why I was getting these masks, why were you?
>>9965363>Which mask are you choosing?Skeletor, unless my wife wants to be She-Ra for Halloween: then Hordak.
>>9965653Yeah, I'm not trying to exceed my boundaries as a life long lurker but it's tiresome and come tomorrow the board will be plastered with that guy from YouTube in every op image. I wanna see chicks play with he man too but I just don't think this is the place.
>>9965522for a second i thought those were real giant figures. honestly a bit disappointed.
>>9965691What if your wife wants you to be She-Ra?
>>9965718I wish they were.
G-guys... has Mattel even disclosed to shareholders how well the CGI/kids line is selling? If only adult collectors buy the other two lines and they each outsell "Core", that's a bad sign for the future.
>>9965752I only ever see the big heman and skeletor figures in stock at retail now. I cant tell if thats a good thing or a bad thing.
bit off topic, but thoughts on sectaurs? I consider them to be one of the first big MOTU clones. Im happy nacelle nabbed the license. If these prove affordable I might buy a few. Giant insect people would make great foes for eternians.
>>9965741Then she has to wear the Hordak mask, body armor, black panties and blue body paint.Come to think, I don't know how to get/make his weird monster footwear even if I'm Hordak.
>>9965766Nice implementation of Webstor.
>>9965767Saw em today and almost made a thread on the new figures. I'm glad we're getting Stelara.
>>9965767I'd hardly call them MOTU clones, they were a completely different scale, a much more consistent theme of insectoids, and focused on a symbiotic relationship between them and their bug companions. About these Nacelle figures, great for those who have a collection of the old figures, but I'd have much rather these be modernized and fully articulated. According to Nacelle they'll have their vintage look and be only slightly more articulated than the old figures, which I assume means elbows, maybe wrists and ankles.
>>9965766>skeleton warriors webstor on the rightfucking kino
>>9965773You think? Has Webstor ever been thin? He always seems to be the same size as others, or a hulking monster. Even ignoring Webstor, it clearly has skeletal limbs with a non skeletal head. Not a big fan of that.
>>9965791Thin limbs like a spider, is not that hard to get.
>>9965481ah okay, not a fan of the trap jaw dont like the weird face under his jaw i think im gonna save and get the classics or filmation one.
>>9965777I hope they do well, that unreleased wave is the stuff of dreams >>9965787I only used the term clone because of the swords and scifi aspect of sectaurs. obviously the two are very different, i'd say sectaurs has more in common with thundarr due to the whole post-apocalyptic angle.>About these Nacelle figures, great for those who have a collection of the old figures, but I'd have much rather these be modernized and fully articulated. According to Nacelle they'll have their vintage look and be only slightly more articulated than the old figures, which I assume means elbows, maybe wrists and ankles.I wouldnt put the prospect of high end poseable sectaurs past nacelle. Their purchase of ips like roboforce and silverhawks shows they intend to enter the collector toy market. As I see things, the sectaurs they've shown off now are intended to be their equivalent of MOTU origins.
>trying to penny pinch my way through the impending economic bedshitting coming up>seen an ebay listing of random vintage figures including tung lashor for less than 15 bucks totalson of a bitch
>>9965842That's a good deal.
>>9965767Worthless without the glove puppet mounts or little bug buddies.
>>9965859DO IT!Brand new Origins in the store aren't even that cheap anymore.
>>9965887The puppet mounts do look fun.I'm imagining MotU with lots of different versions of the Fright Zone puppet.
>>9965887im sure they're cooking up bug buddies as we speak. it would be a fool's errand to revive sectaurs without the bug puppets.
>>9965887While I do love the old puppets, I think making them into rideable mounts would be best for this line.At the very least it’d making taking pics easier.
>>9965923>At the very least it’d making taking pics easierI wonder if pic related would aid in posing the vintage mounts
>>9965859I didn't know too much about snake men but after getting a rattlor and old busted cobra kahn I'm really super into tung lasher. I'd do a hold up on a stage coach if I'd get a snake face! I know we won't get good gimmicks but I've grown to the snake men wave.
>>9965915One company already did just that with a 1:18 scale line. Insanity when you consider that's a heck of a lot easier to make and ship out big monsters for than 6 inchers.https://www.zicatoys.com/4-action-figures/sectaurs/>>9965990They just might do Snake Face's face snakes similar to how they did Mantenna's eyes.
More info about the motu masks.There are going to be more masks that they haven’t shown off. And they are going to be at retailhttps://m.youtube.com/watch?v=qwqhu7ClgEs
>>9965933Yeah, maybe.At the very least it’d be a fun take.
>>9965834>I wouldnt put the prospect of high end poseable sectaurs past nacelleI'd like that. I find the Sectaurs aesthetic very nice, and Zica's efforts were excellent and really struck a good middle ground of classic and modern, I found. It'd be great to have another MOTU adjacent line that actually fits into swords and sorcery that could fit in with fellow 7" figures in Masterverse.
>>9966235He's also featured on Masterverse Hordak's art. I wonder if he'll get a figure there too.
>>9966266If they do Masterverse, will he also have suction cups?
>>9966348>suction cups on a deluxe masterverse figure around beastman's sizeI wasnt expecting it but now Im anticipating its inclusion. Origins Leech is already a blast as is, imagine an upscaled version of that.
>>9965345I'm allergic to latex fml.
>>9966413you could always just buy your favorite and display it on a foam mannequin head like a mounted big game trophy
There's a really cute Adora cosplayer at Power Con and she makes me long for a MV figure of the OG design
the brilliant parts reuse present in both the 88' line up and Fuerza T is pretty ingenious when you take a step back to admire it all from afar. frankly it makes you think about all the other characters that could have been cooked up from simple parts reuse. there's parts mattel only ever used on single characters ever. just looking over just the snakemen and the horde for example shows off how many parts could have been reused that never were.
>>9965241I like the fact that he doesn't have any snake motif at all. It makes him appear more like some kind of a free agent in the team, or an outside addition.
>>9965241I'd say that he doesn't have snake power but then again neither does Grasp and besides how many snake related powers you can think of, I think we only didn't try hypnosis.>>9965064I wouldn't say he's proof that Filmation will now start pouring in. For one thing he was really cheap. Just new head and armor.
>>9966480>>9965346People around here sure don't mind having overly similar redundant characters, huh?
>>9966516>how many snake related powers you can think of, I think we only didn't try hypnosis.retractable fangs (vintage fangor probably would have had these), camouflage, sea-snakes, and gliding snakes come to mind. also given the existence of pythons and anacondas Im surprised we dont have a big bruiser snakeman with a "crushing" feature.
>>9966348Masterverse is like Classics. I wouldn't expect functioning cups. I think they'll be more stingy with features than Origins is. MV Stinkor didn't even stink, did he?
>>9966523Making more characters will similar gimmicks just makes the existing ones feel special. How about another Heroic Warrior with metal elephant head or another mosquito guy?Fun allowed to me coming with new crazy ideas and not stagnating.
>>9966534How about some POWER OF THE SUN?
>>9966506>some kind of free agentSee, that's the only way I can see it in a palatable light. (This logic applies to Kobra Khan too). I like both as Evil Warriors, but in a situation where Skeletor and Hiss are tight and basically share a their resources, it's fine, the same way it's fine to see Skeletor bossing Tung Lashor around, or if Ninjor joins Blast in his snake aiding job. In set ups like that, neither set of fans get left out in the cold, both interpretations are valid.I mainly get het up over it when Skeletor and Hiss are enemies and it's "pick a side". One thing I really hated in 200x was Kobra Khan is a Snake, always been a Snake, never one of team Skeletor.
>>9966543getting Alter Beast vibes here
>>9966556Wise fwom youw gwave
>>9966552Look at that green HUGMACHINE go
>>9966543I'd have bought it like this
>>9966573It's going in dry
I'm disappointed with this reimagining of Zodac, they didn't really put any twist on character that really was asking for it.
>>9966552Well, there is a no question that Khan makes more sense with Snakes than Blast-Attak...but still too bad that him joining Skeletor was just a mandatory little nod to his original allegiance an and he didn't get to be a real member for at least an episode.Of course Snake Men have it worse in this regard - Rattlor and Lashor were Hordesmen in Filmation, one Marvel comic had Sssqueeze and Snake Face work for Hordak...King Hiss is the only guy to was actually always a Snake Man.
>>9966632How MotU has somehow managed to go decades with a character who SHOULD be one of the coolest actually being one of the lamest and most overlooked is quit a feat. He was the only space alien at a time when MotU was more sword and sorcery than sci-fi, basically the precursor that lead to opening the door for stuff like Horde, and all the robots, etc. You would have thought that'd make him standout.
>>9966643>there is a no question that Khan makes more sense with SnakesThematically, yeah, but through nostalgia goggles...we had 2 whole years of Khan serving Skeletor before Hiss showed up, and virtually all his vintage media used that allegiance. I honestly can't just brush that under the rug, so I'll personally never view Khan as a Snakeman. My bottom line is "what was on the vintage card?"If the original release of the vintage figure had the Snake logo on the card, they're a Snake. If not, Evil Warrior.
>>9966654Him being a spy for king hiss makes sense to me.
>>9966654>My bottom line is "what was on the vintage card?"So Zodac is a bad guy to you?
>>9966673Yes. I don't completely discard the "cosmic balance" shtick, but the way I see it, good guys hold all the cards on Eternia, so Zodac would just naturally ally more with Skeletor, just so evil gets that extra bolstering.Plus it makes my year one figures more symmetrical. 4 heroes, 4 villains, as opposed to 5 heroes, 3 villains
>>9966654200X was making few changes like that. Webstor was barely an Evil Warrior and apparently Modulok was going to be a solo act.Not that vintage itself didn't made changes. There used to be no Adam and Zoar was separate entity from Sorceress, for one thing.Weren't there vintage media eventually using Khan as Snake Men member once they showed up?And yeah, thematically. It would be just impossible to ignore existance of Snake Men and not commenting that Skeletor has snake working for him. Also it's hilarious that we're so stuck with idea that bunch of villains have one allegiance and they will never switch sides due to loyalty to their boss. Didn't Modulok ditched Skeletor in most of continuities?
>>9966543Love it. Is anyone selling Origins-compatible Galaxy Warriors heads?
Most of vintage continuties have Khan as double agent, they just don't agree if he's loyay to Skeletor, King Hiss or just himself.
>>9966707"Evil Henchman of Snake Men"Man, poor guy had a huge downgrade from "Evil Master of Snakes"
>>9966700>There used to be no Adam and Zoar was separate entity from Sorceress, for one thing.Both of which are changes I also disagreed with. >Weren't there vintage media eventually using Khan asI think maybe some stuff like UK comics or whatever, but nothing I'm very familiar with. All the major stuff (the cartoon, the minicomics [excluding the one where he was a plant sent to spy on Hiss], and even thr Golden books) had him on team Skeletor
If you could pick 10 toys to go into Origins who would it be? (assuming all vintage is assured?)
>>9966712Cartoon didn't had Snake Men period, others were Horde members so...
>>9966673>So Zodac is a bad guy to you?In my collection, Zodac (monster limbs/Robin Williams chest) helps evil as long as it's downtrodden on Eternia. If Skeletor got his shit together like Langella/CGI/ep 5 of Revelation, Zodac would immediately turn on him.But I also like to treat Filmation as part of my headcanon, so if I had a Zodak (all-human, brown skin), he'd be the one who's rarely on Eternia but helps good when he is.
You know, this New Eternia thing would be a great place to give this "No trasformation" thing a go.They coudl even release King Randor and Prince Adam later with no connection to He-Man.
>>9966712Marvel comics had him pull a Modulok and ditch Skelly.
>>9966607Sssqueeze as snake-Modulok: stack 3 upper torsos on his abs to get 6 stretchy limbs.
>>9966725>the day after Kobra Khan ditches Skeletor...
>>9966646You would think he'd atleast be in the background more, but nope, you gotta head cannon zodac into the good stories. He is omnipotent right? Does anyone else involved with MOTU have such an ability other than zodac? Does anyone else have the responsibility of balancing the cosmic forces of good and evil? There is plenty of room for zodac story wise if someone were to tell his story.
>>9966732>Does anyone else have the responsibility of balancing the cosmic forces of good and evil?Hordak did once but see the footnote (sad kek).
>>9966739He was once an engineer who balanced Good and Evil into a building like they're electrical current or something.
>>9966739Well, hordak did get booted from that gig for a reason and I doubt it was attendance related lol
>>9966730After losing his boyfriend, Webstor tries auto-erotic asphyxiation, horryifing his coworkers.
>>9966730Well played anon
>>9966730> He's hanging from Castle Grayskull> Sorceress just let it happen.
>>9966552>One thing I really hated in 200x was Kobra Khan is a Snake, always been a Snake, never one of team Skeletor.I strongly agree with you.The 200X cartoon felt like it wanted to be a speedrun of vintage MotU, wiping out any nuance in the vintage fiction, and KK's only goal in life being to get through the Snake Mountain dungeon as far as King Hiss's dimensional pool was my least-favorite example.
>>9966768Unlike Filmation which was slowrun in that in over 100 episodes nothing developed or changed.
>>9966770Nta but this is why I can't really sit down and enjoy the cartoons anymore. I know they are basically commercials but guess just seeing my toys animated isn't enough for me now. Idk, maybe if I try watching with a beer and some flower I can relive that magic.
>>9966749She pushed him off.
>>9966770Oh, Filmation definitely had structural problems. Sunbow's Transformers and GI Joe showed that even syndicated cartoons designed to be watchable in any order could have big changes at the beginning of seasons.But if you want continuous narrative development where the status quo completely changes every 8-10 episodes, the good show is the CGI one. Even though it sometimes LOOKS like a video game, it never feels like He-Man or Kobra Khan is being puppeted by someone going for a run to unlock all the characters as fast as possible. It's actually good for a toy commercial to feel like a sandbox with breathing room. KK and Webstor being friends and Kittrina existing and hating Webstor/being in love with Battle Cat actually inspires me to want more toys than the "introduce vintage toys at a fast clip, give most nothing to do but silent cameos in battle scenes" strategy.
Will we ever see Conan the Barbarian in Origins?
>>9966889Sure. "Vikor" is literally a Conan sketch Mark Taylor did while Mattel held the toy license without, ultimately, doing anything with it.Totally legal, probably only because Conan Properties International already took Mattel to court once and lost.
>TRU has 30% off all MotU figures and vehiclesShould I get Stridor?Pros: he's 30% off, and I can reenact the Fisto minicomicCons: I have to budget display and storage space, Stridor today might mean not being able to get something I'll want more in the futureWhat you guys think? Is Stridor worth the space he'll take up?
>>9966898You totally got what I was saying ;) They need to do it!!
>>9962425What figure is that on the left?
If Origins continued with POP toys, could they just get away with reusing head?
>>9966907Lady death or lady demon, from chaos comics
My Leech's right foot suction cup is deformed slightly. It is causing the suction to come undone very quickly. Anyone know a fix for this?>>9965691Dang those are great cosplays. I wish I was in shape so I could cosplay as a MotU character.
>>9966918>If Origins continued with POP toys, could they just get away with reusing head?... what?
>>9966883I feel like the problem with 200X was that it was trying to fit all heroes and villains in each episode. If they varied the lineup more often like say Justice League did, it would work out for everyone. Still, almost every character got at least one focus episode.However I'd say that Khan is much better in 200X. Dude downright nuanced with his struggle to fit in with Snake Men. Meanwhile in Filmation his friendship with Webstor is basically subtext. They hang out a lot, that's all.
>>9966935She-Ra's head. Could they just repaint her hair color for different girls?
>>9966940No, do they repaint he man's head for other characters?
>>9966942No because Fisto and He-Man don't look alike the way Frosta and Mermista do.
>>9966949>>9966940Did the vintage figures even have unique face sculpts?
>>9966942>>9966949>>9966952I don't think they do. Pretty sure every vintage pop uses the exact same head with different colored rooted hair. So dude has a point, if Origins does more PoP, every single one should reuse the existing She-Ra head with different color hair just for vintage accuracy
So Filmation basically designed Orko with without visible legs or mouth to animated and with symmetrical design (that why they changed his name from Gorpo). Sometimes I wonder if this show only lasted so long because they saved money by focusing on Orko and other Trollans."Mattel send us another toy!""Is it symmetrical?""He has two heads and looks like two different dudes mashed together""Shit....Greenlight 6 more Orko episodes."
>>9966977Well not Entrapta and Double Trouble. (And Bow, Kowl and Loo-Kee.)
>>9966985>Well not Entrapta and Double Trouble. Entrapta had a unique head sculpt? Also, I forgot DT existed.>(And Bow, Kowl and Loo-Kee.)Come on, now, I think it went without saying that those three don't factor in
>>9966994More like that she would need much bigger hair.
>>9966952>Did the vintage figures even have unique face sculpts?I actually don't know. We need to find a >40-year-old fangirl who owns them.("Bitch, don't go cloning yourself unless that's going to be a consistent power. You barely use your teleport.")
Girly pretty boy Bow (still has mustache)
>>9967000Oh...yes. silly me
>>9967004>Girly pretty boy Bow (still has mustache)Bow being a thirsty heterosexual with that mustache and half a tank top with a heart design on it did more to break down stereotypes than Nu-Ra.
Hey gang, why is the line called MOTU ORIGINS but it never says ORIGINS on any of the packages??
>>9966982Filmation only survived on being cheap.
>>9967037Not as cheap as Hanna-Barbera or Ruby-Spears.
>>9967012>>9967024Kissing two different boys? You're grounded!
>>9965205 Mush Mouth and Dumb Donald fusion.
>>9966977Eh, this just doesn't sound good to me. As we are seeing with the snake men vintage accuracy isnt Mattel's goal. Plus a line of figures all suffering from same face is just a bad idea on paper, it may have worked then but I don't think it'll fly now.
>>9965219 Rule 34 now.
>>9965223 Is that a JoJo character?
>>9965551 I'd put a load of slime in her mouth.
>>9966883>Webstor uses his powers mainly to peep>Peeping toms his crush who actually hates himI mean, I am both amused and feel bad. I may need him for coomer thread background lurking after all.
Why the heck is it that every time I buy a new MOTU ORIGINS figure it never says ORIGINS on it??!! Someone please explain this!!
>>9966901I don't have one myself but if I had to choose between land shark, wind raider or stridor I'd get stridor. It looks more poseable than the vehicles obviously but you could also take it a character itself like battle cat/cringer where it talks and pals around with fisto as they continue their journey of fisting evil doers across eternia. All in all stridor seems like a much more versatile toy than any of the vehicles and is probably the best mount in origins so far.
>>9967107>All in all stridor seems like a much more versatile toy than any of the vehicles and is probably the best mount in origins so far.I agree with this take.
>>9967059Maybe same face, different hair? Can they even do that?>>9967107Stridor is easily my favorite vehicle and his focus episode in Filmation completely sold me on character.
Who's up for MOTU masks? Available: Beast Man, Hordak, Mer-Man, Skeletor, Stinkor, Trap Jaw & Webstor.
>>9967226Honestly, I'm kinda tempted to get Skeletor.
>>9966901Stridor's great, and space-wise is the most compact so far by virtue of tall legs. Figures can sometimes slip off the seat, but clever posing of the knees and feet will allow a figure to plant themselves solidly in Stridor. Personally, until they release Night Stalker, I've been using Stridor for both good guys and bad guys by swapping the horse helmets.The massive footwell though is great for throwing figure accessories in there, if you're like me and don't like keeping accessories away from the figures while they're gripping controls.
>>9967226I'm down for the idea of MotU masks, but the current selection doesn't do much for me...I want a Clawful mask
Clamp Champ's clamp really should have a wrist clip on it
>>9967250There are plans for He-Man and Faker....Maybe Moss Man.
>>9967250Don't like them don't buy them. No need to whine about what others like here. Just because YOU don't like it doesn't mean it's not good
>>9966901>Is Stridor worth the space he'll take up?Very.
>>9967261How is that whining? I said I like the idea of MotU masks, but the character I'd actually be interested in wasn't made. I didn't shit on the ones they did show off, and I wasn't calling anyone a fag for liking it. Did you make the masks yourself? Because you sound pretty defensive over them

Hi guys what are we talking abo-
>>9967317>Sun Man just wanted to hang out and eat pizza with his Earth friends, but he walked into the aftermath of the Snake Men's brutal attack on their apartment
>>9967279Unironically, I'd buy a MOTU one of these if NECA decides to do more with the license. Maybe a Webstor, or even a proper glow-in-the-dark Scareglow knowing how well they handle that kind of plastic.
>>9967343>Maybe a Webstor, or even a proper glow-in-the-dark Scareglow knowing how well they handle that kind of plastic.Do want.
>>9967329>strangely, it wasn't the actual Snake Men attack that caused such devastation, but instead Bolt-Man flipping out right after Rattlor rattled, resulting in indiscriminate lightning strikes towards both foes and friends
>Shatner will be a VA in Revolution>it's unlikely that he'll say Kobra Khan's name
>>9967317NOT EVERY BLACK GUY IS SUN-, actually wait, he does kinda look like him.
>>9967311Thank you, the Mosquitors are the only flying baddie-related things I have that I could pit against the Wind Raider and Sun-Man. Maybe I can throw one of them in a Roton, whenever I can eventually get ahold of one
>>9967359Sun-Man's standard head is so great for these "youth reacting to comically bad situation" takes that I've yet to come up with serious adventures for him.
>>9967403And I did not splurge on the MC version."MOM! The stupid backyard barbecue is out of control!"
>>9967403>Sun-Man's standard head is so great for these "youth reacting to comically bad situation" takes that I've yet to come up with serious adventures for himSame for me, he definitely looks very confused about suddenly being pulled into Eternia in an endearing way>>9967412>when you brought pizza and the apartment's on fire

went to a comic convention yesterday in Hopes of Finding a Mer-Man figure, no luck. I did find a He-Man for $15
>>9967477Wow, that vinyl(?) figure looks good with He-Man and Skeletor.>went to a comic convention yesterday in Hopes of Finding a Mer-Man figure, no luckAll-green body Mer-Man, or LoP? Shame you didn't find what you were looking for, I hope you can get it in the near future.
>>9967477Damn, if you had let me know you were going I'd have given you the money to get me one of those awesome Godzilla figures like in the pic. Nice shot.
>>9967484Thanks! The colors turned out much more vibrant that I expected. It's just a raw image i took with my phone.also, LOP Mer-Man. I like his big, goofy eyes and the Green and yellow are much more pleasing to the eye.>>9967482Its some sort of bootleg Godzilla figure I found on Ebay a while back for for Godzilla figures. I cant find any markings on it. I think it was made using an Old Imperial Toys mold. I bought him just because of the weird colors.
Hope you got your beast wranglers ready for next year.
>>9967515Cease and desist!
I8 remember growing up that MOTU was considered Satanic by church groups. Does Anti-Eternia He-Man live up to their accusations?
>>9967515These look pretty cool, anyone else thinking about giving this line a chance?
>>9967540>Does Anti-Eternia He-Man live up to their accusations?It's just He-Man but evil, there's nothing particularly demonic about him. He's what people think Faker is if they didn't know Faker is a robot.Scareglow (and I guess Ninjor) fits a satanic theme better by being a spirit summoned to do someone's bidding.>>9967543I wanna see if they'll do some more snazzy weapons. A flame staff doesn't quite reel me in yet.
>>9967549I agree. AE-HM being of Germanic origin is still evil, though.
>>9967515this is what saggitar should have been
>>9967558>AE-HM being of Germanic origin is still evil, though.I know it's not what you're implying, but I immediately thought about him stealing mustard and sauerkraut from little german children trying to enjoy a bratwurst and fries lunch
>>9967565Oh, that too lol
>>9967543Yeh, I've been thinking about it. Shall see
>>9967549>He's what people think Faker is if they didn't know Faker is a robot.What SHOULD Faker be, in you're guys opinion? Should he be treated like a Bizarro version of He-man, with a comparable level of strength but a personality that's "off"? As just a master of disguise that looks like He-Man but doesn't have any real powers? Should he even have a personality and self determination or just be a mindless robot?

As just a master of disguise that looks like He-Man but doesn't have any real powers? Should he even have a personality and self determination or just be a mindless robot?As a robot, I think it would be alright if he's a different thing every time he shows up. If Skeletor needs him to look and act perfect, then he can't put that power into matching He-Man's strength. He can match everything, but not all at once.One thing I've always liked (from the Classics bio lore) is him encountering Anti-Eternia Keldor under AE-HM's orders to infiltrate, but he can't ever resist perfectly following Skeletor so he turns against AE-HM as a result. So, he can follow orders of his own volition—but Skeletor's takes priority.
>>9967543I want to splice him onto a LoP Beastman
>>9967618have you ever seen return of faker? thats my ideal faker. a cyborg doppelganger of heman thats just a bit off in every sense, but is also cunning and intimidating in everyway. Thats the version of Faker I can see eventually assuming the role of Lord Faker. That's also partially why I've never been fond of the ultron esc take on faker where theres just hundreds of other fakers in cold storage waiting to be activated. To me he's always been motu's own t-800.
>>9967647Oh that'd be great looking! I'd enjoy seeing this head on beast man and vice a versa. That staff would look really hard on the lop beast man, just that extra bit that pushes him to be even more awesome looking.
My Kol Darr arrived a couple days earlier than expected. I guess it makes up for Wun-Dar coming in a couple days late
>>9967782-Dar must be a common suffix in one of the Eternian languages.Miro also named his sons "dor"s.
It's a Wun-Darful Life, starring Jimmy Stewart in fur boots and undies.
>>9967794He looks much better amongst a group then I expected. My biggest reason for skipping him was the armor...it looked too plain. Like you compare it MAA with its greebles, and Jitsu with the two tone colors and ornate designs. But he really fits in better than I expected inspite of that shortcoming...I thought it was gonna be a "Classics" type situation where a lot of Filmation guys (like Lizard Man) looked like they didn't really belong in the same toyline as like He-Man, Teela and MAA.I'm glad I was proven wrong and I'll be sure to try and snag the next Filmation guy, who it may be.
Just realized that it's gonna be a long long time, if ever, before there's Origins Scorpia. First they'd have to commit to doing PoP, then figure out what she should look like if the ones with vintage toys follow those designs.

>>9967826I hope they make one of the monsters next.
>>9967843Who's the best Filmation monster?
>>9967845Monstrous humanoid, or "monster" monster?If the former, StrongarmIf the latter, Molkrom
>>9967845Top 5 in this order>Granamyr(absolute best and none of the others come close)>Sh'Gora>Molkrom>Takdryl>The Sleeping BeastWould say Dragoon but he is very humanoid. Honorable mention is the Sand Demons who also have doubled as ice monsters or stone monsters, and the Shadow Beasts.
>>9967790Duh is the suffix for confirmed Eternian retards. So Whiplash's full name is Whiplash-Duh.
>>9967865>sh'goraI would deduct points for looking so stupid.The Sleeping Beast does Lovecraftian Elder God way better.
The Sleeping Beast
>>9967886I completely agree but am biased as it's one of my favorite episodes, Sh'Gora was a fun villain and the Sleeping Beast ends up getting fucked up with ease. Sleeping Beast is a way cooler design, although for Filmation it is incredibly detailed to the point it's almost distracting and looks like it should be in a different cartoon.
Which female characters do y'all want before Shokoti there?Marlena is #1After that, it's a tough call. Shadow Weaver or Catra open the floodgate to "complete the Filmation Horde", and Rebels to fight them...Kittrina would be a good addition to Eternia without bringing in anyone else.
>>9967932Why before Shokoti? After is more ideal, she's best choice and a standout villain.
Warning if any of you have the battle cat/battle armor heman 2 pack, checked my figures and some of the paint somehow rubbed off onto him. Glad i had a cheap figure on him
>>9968115Oof, that's not good.
>>9968161>>9968161>>9968161>>9968161New Thread let's go go go go!
>>9964962Should join the Horde because that's a horrendous design.
>>9967543im kind of poorfag bit prr ordered not panthor ladydont really care about the restid like more female motu, but the faces and knees of the new ones im not that intomore visible joints in the knees id gladly accept to make then slimmer looking
>>9962100The best toys
