Guess who's finally coming to dinner? :D
So glad we are finally getting him! Not sure I like how his heads connect to his chest, though. Their necks seem more elongated than I would expect.
We'll leave this thread for Multi-Bot. The Modulok discussion continues here:
This thread is almost entirely devoted to Modulok....I feel like Multibot should really have a new thread of his own.
At any rate, now that the more desired Modulok is being released, I'm very interested in getting a Multibot. I know he's not on the radar of most fans, but am convinced he will look amazing. Here's hoping we get him, probably in 2015.
After seeing what they've done with Modulok, I cannot *wait* for Multi-Bot. He was one of the few that I somehow never got as a kid and a Classics version would be amazing. I may have to track down the vintage version one of these days. Wish there was a way to get his Filmation look, but as with Modulok, I bet they do toy only.
The problem with this guy is that he'd be another 100% tool, and he's significantly less popular than Modulok. It would be great if they could include his Filmation heads, which were totally different than his vintage toy heads, but it's made more complicated by the fact that in Filmation his colours were drastically different too. We'll definitely get him in 2015, but I'm sure he'll be straight up vintage.
I know he's 100% tool and much less popular than Modulok, but I'm hoping that 4 Horseman sculpt would win people over. I wouldn't mind some Filmation heads/parts, but hopefully the figure would mostly mirror the vintage figure.
One thing that has to be fixed is that this character needs to have a horde logo on him, So far Modulok did not get it, Mosquitor's is totally weak and in my eyes really doesnt have it and We Havent gotten entrapta yet so it hard to tell what she will get. And I would have no problem getting both the vintage and filmation versions of this character,one of the few cases i feel this way.
I think this thread should be seperated into 2 seperate threads modulak and multibot. He looks real godd, so glad we can now make Megabeast!
the crotch piece on Modulok is the one glaring flaw for me. it's over-sized and doesn't seem to fit, visually, with the rest of the figure. it seems Multibot is the same, at least based on the preview photos.
Really hard to judge anything on one pic; it looks good, though not quite the knock-out-of-the-park Moddy was.
Sorry if this sounds like a dumb question, but are we getting 2 torsos for Multi-Bot figure ??
So on the most updated calendar is he due in May or June?
How much is Multibot gonna be? Is he the $42 item?
here's a message from Facebook:
MULTI-BOT UPDATE: From the Desk of Skeletor's Love Child
Good morning (or afternoon for those who may be viewing from across the pond)!
Quick update about our friend Multi-Bot: I know he was originally scheduled to be released in May, however it's taking him a little longer than planned to get here. Since I can't give you something that's not physically here he will now be offered in June. Just wanted to give you a heads up so the worry/concern/panic attacks could be minimized smile emoticon

Multibot Update: He's taking longer to arrive than planned so he'll be released in June instead of May.
I figured Mattel would push this item to June to make sure June is a heavier month. I would be on the lookout for something in May (either an out of sub item, or a fan demanded figure return).
I don't buy that the shipment is late, I just think Mattel strategically places the items to get you to spend the most per month per visit on Mattycollector.com. If it removed a big item, that means it wants you to buy something else in that month or not to have to make a tough choice between big items.
I always thought Multi-Bot was supposed to be in June anyway. So, doesn't make much of a difference to me.
