:lol: Heeheee....yeah, I can see how people examining their figures for flaws and then writing about them can be annoying. I think it's the result of people's passion for the MOTU line in general, coupled with the fact that they're paying 20+ dollars per figure.

I agree to a point. Like, if they had a right arm forced onto where there should be a left leg, then by all means complain. Or if Frosta came painted green.

But those reversed shoulders? I own both of those figures, and I still can't figure out what they're talking about. It's that nit-picky.

The thing is, I can understand noticing. I can't understand demanding a reissue over it.

I'd love to have one of those reverse shoulders Robotos. So if any of you hate it because of that, send it my way. I promise to give it a loving home. :D

Man, Draego-Man is SWEET! It's now one of my favorites from this line. Now, if only his jaws could open and shut . . .

Off the top of my head (most of the 200x line are extras from my brother as he was buying cases at that point)

Vintage- Spikor, Two Bad
200x- Buzz off, Teela, Evil-lyn Two Bad, Whiplash, Orko, Man E Faces, Skeletor
Stactions- Tung Lashor, Clawful, Sorceress, Stinkor, Snout Spout, Mantenna
MOTUC- Shadow Beast, Draego-Man, Battle Cat, Panthor, Marlena, Crinjur, Teela, BG Teela, Evil-lyn, BG Evil-lyn, Sorceress, Fisto, Kobra Khan, Trap Jaw, Clawful, Snout Spout, Carnivus, Leech, Hordak, Skeletor, Mer Man (Aquaman Pack),

I think thats it-- (not to mention my wife all the new she-ra stuff (including the 200x con version)- and multiples of most-- and most of the vintage ones.

Well, they've finally plumbed the depth of my MOTUC villain fandom. Slush Head will be a pass. He just looks so . . . dumb.

Ah well, at least there's still Stinkor.

I think that's the point... Slush Head *is* dumb...

Actually, SH was the only NA character that I was looking forward to in the line as I thought he was the most interesting in the vintage line. I'm amazed at how the Horsemen turned me around on Icarius and Optikk and I can't wait to see what they do with some of the other lame-os like Flogg and Tuskador.

i recently bought mossman and yeah he does have a nice forest floor scent but nowhere near as strong as i had heard on youtube and other sites stating that he would stink your room out of pine smell lol.

im wondering if you guys have the classics stinkor and what is his smell like? strong?

Stinkor comes out on the 15th. Ask again later. LOL.

I can't believe people complain about the scent. It's not that strong. I thought JLU fans knew how to complain. I. WAS. WRONG. MOTU fans have us beat any day of the week. LOL.

I'm looking forward to Slush Head. But that just goes to show that not every character is for everyone. Snout Spout is one of my passes. Though it was a pass with a lot of hand wringing. So I'll probably get him at some point.
I love the NA characters. Honestly, I didn't like the cartoon that much, but I love the designs. I really want a NA He-Man and Hydron. 4H are doing a great job on them. Hopefully we get Ram Man before Butt Head. LOL

Not sure that any of you would be interested, but there is a fan-movement afoot to get the Horsemen's likenesses added to the line. Back in the day when the original create-a-character contest was going on the MOTU magazine ran a story about it with some cut-out pieces that could be assembled to make four armored characters. Some of the fans are trying to convince Mattel to actually sell MOTUC figures of those cut-out designs and have the Horsemen likenesses under the helmets or as alternate heads. The Horsemen are for the idea, too. Anyway... if interested in seeing exactly what this is all about or adding yourself to the "like" column go here...

EDIT: One of the reasons I hate Facebook... I can't find any of the pertinent info on the Facebook page, but here's a link to the thread about it at the .org -- http://www.he-man.org/forums/boards/sho ... UC-Figures

If the armors had better designs I wouldn't be opposed to them. But as they are, it's a big fat no from me.
