Never mind, found it. :hmlol:
About a year ago I've started a custom figure of Rio Blast, but I haven't finished it. But I've finished the headsculpt for it. This headsculpt wasn't half as cool as the one the horsemen did now for the staction, but my headsculpt had long hair with a ponytail (much like the one of Duncan, but much longer). He looked real cool with long hair. But again: I like the Rio Blast Staction. It's not what I had in Mind for Rio Blast, but it's cool. If I want a version of Rio Blast that looks just the way I want him to look, I can still build a custom. Nice work Horsemen!
Rio Blast looks absolutely fantastic. Love the big ass six-shooter.
Given the dissapointing Wave 3, I'm glad to see there's some coolness still to look forward to.
I love it
I'm buying all my friends one.
You know what? Thats EXACTLY how I would have imagined his hair length. Oh how I wish the 4H would change their mind after seeing this!!Quote:

I love everything about these stactions.
But, I have to agree that some longer hair would really make Rio Blast better, IMO. He's still great. But he could be cool with longer hair. :skgrin:
I agee with both counts. The stactions are awesome.Quote:

The update is excellent, keeping the essence of the old figure. THe only thing I'd change is the hair; it does make him look a bit too much like Duncan, as some have pointed out. Longer hair, even something of a mullet, might have fit the character better.
I beleive this as well. I love the new staction ,its fantastic but I really think Rio needs longer hair.Quote:

But, a good looking figure nonetheless and I would still buy of course.
Maybe Rio Blast IS Duncan from another dimension who gets trapped on the Eternia we know and joins up with the Masters, hence why the two look alike.... :hmshift:
Or he's his OTHER brother, also lost during the Great War and potential father of Teela! :sklol: :hmeek:
Awesomeness. :skgrin: You know, it's funny. I hate classic Rio Blast. But I am totally into this new 4H version. They toned down the obvious cowboy bits and he's just really really cool. :skgrin: I can't believe they pulled off my least favorite MotU character of all time...or maybe I can. :skgrin:
You do realize that about a third of your list is not even remotely possible, right? :skwink:Quote:

absolutely love him! Just wonderful!
The big gun is great! It makes sence that he is somewhat a cyborg, when I think about the old version. Otherwise he would never get those guns into his legs that he has/had!
i love him! the only thing thats kind of weird is him having a side arm off his belt on the side where he has a gun instead of an arm...so unless the gun pops out of the holster by itself (which it very well might being that his thing and all) seems a little weird.
as far as people saying he looks like Man-at-Arms, i think if you give anybody in Eternia a square jaw and a moustache they are going to look like Man-at-arms.
Yep, that's also exactly how I imagined his hair length would be. I just wasn't expecting the close cut at all - it doesn't suit a "cowboy" and it really should be blowing about iconically. Plus it'd be a good nod to the classic figure to give his hair a bit of length, and help make him all that little bit more identifiable. I suppose the production of this figure is well under way now? If the 4H read this I'm sure they've seen that a good majority of us really do prefer him with longer hair - and those that like the short hair aren't necessarilly saying they prefer it, but simply that "it's OK too". My point here is if we were somehow magically given the option, we'd most all of us choose the version that had long hair. This crew cut is like a nagging though at the back of my head; A minor blemish on a wonderful work of art.Quote:

If there's a chance that this is a 2-up and they can still make some alterations then I'll definately be getting multiple copies of this guy. If not, I'll probably just pass him up...
Indidentally I was looking at the pics of him on the front page of the 'Org and realised that his "bum chin" is a wee bit too extreme. It's like he'd have to wipe his chin after going to the toilet..
Do you think that Rio Blast's bionic arm can condense down into a regular hand like MAA in the 2kx cartoon? Or is his arm always a cannon?
Any word from the 4H on what they envision?
it seems like thats what happens i think. it shrinks down to a regular arm or perhaps a mech one.
Yeah...I'm thinking it's like Man At Arm's gun/arm.
Welcome Kronis! :hmgrin:
I think that the 4H have imagined that Rio was in a duel, and he got part of his head blown off (including his eyeball), as well as his arm, so man-at-arms rebuilt his arm into a gun, and gave him the ability to have an automatic targeting system ala samus from metroid. Hence the targeting reticule covering his new cybernetic eye...HOW COOL IS THAT!
His hair, if grown to a certain point, I.E. LONG, would interfere with his tageting system, so he HAS to keep it short, OR man-at-arms infused a way to stop hair growth completely, securing his ability to auto target...god I feel like a nerd!
4H, I'm right...right? :hmgrin: c'mon...post...
Sorry..I thought of some more stuff...The 4H have clearly tried to make Rio look less like a cowboy...BUT, if my backstory is correct, therein lies ALL of the traits of a cowboy!...He had a duel, might have one, might not have, doesn't matter, he got injured, and know he wants REVENGE! Hence the determined expression to blow the pants off of someone...
Duel...Suffering...Revenge...classic western...(without long hair...)
I can see that happening too. The transforming weapons was a regular thing on the 200x MOTU cartoon.Quote:

He would show up and whip out all his guns and blast away a whole crowd of badguys (or good guys, depending on who I wanted to win). I used him with every figure line, MOTU, TMNT, X-Men, Batman, even WWF and WCW figures! :hmlol:
