would Ninjor benefit by having Bow's articulated bow string hand?
Problem is that it would probably be matched with Bow's left hand, which is WAY too open to hold anything tightly that doesn't have the shape of his bow. Pretty much all the weapons I try just fall through or flop around in the left hand. So I'd be up for the drawing hand, but not the left one.
I was Ninjor for Halloween the year he came out. My Mom sewed the whole costume for me.
Ninjor, being one of my all time favorite evil warriors, will be a welcome addition to my collection when he is announced this year. Hopefully. :hmwink:
How cool would it be to see Ninjor come with two heads; one hooded and one unhooded? The unhooded head could look just like the vintage head, which was Jitsu's. So if you wanted, you could put the unhooded head on your Jitsu if you're unsatisfied with the head he came with.
Well that's weird...all these years I thought they shared the headsculpt. Oops.
You're not the only one. I didn't realize it was different until I was researching the vintage figure to make a custom Classics Ninjor.
i never had ninjor as a kid...so i welcome him in MOTUC.
on a semi-related note...
it occurs to me that both japanese-inspired characters are evil? what is this? a 1930's serial?
frankly, in my continuity, jitsu and fisto are buddies and are both good...
jitsu is totally evil, though...:sklol:
Not that the original Jitsu sculpt was very PC.
I can't wait for Ninjor, and I think the Bow articulation for his wrists would be a good idea and help round out his value seeing as he'll be about 75% re-used parts.
I really hope he has Ninja feet and not the monster feet. Maybe he could come with clip on feet so vintage purists can re-create the original.
My Ninjor wish list:
2 heads. Hooded and unhooded.
New vest similar to preternia disguise He-man with sculpted dragon.
Nunchucks with real chain
Bow, arrow and quiver?
newly sculpted sword. (Zodac and Kobra Khan got individual weapons)
And what ninja from the 80's would be complete without some throwing stars??
That's it Lee-Ro....perfect Ninjor.
Sorry mods tried the search ,
Just wanted to say how much I'm looking forward to Ninjor,
Here's hoping they pump him up a bit like Eldor,
I'm thinking old ancient Japan style demon ninja
With rope belts, and tattered robes and non tech style bow, here's a figure that's screaming for two heads, hooded and non hooded, it would be great to have new interchangeable hands with Kung-Fu poses and claws, also new feet would be great , still demon style but with the ninja toe style socks, the tunic should have cool little stuff on the belt, throwing stars etc,..
Yep, if done with the same attention to detail as Eldor, it should be great !!!!!
I see Ninjor as in the first quarter of 2015 batch of figures. We already know he's coming, and I agree he'll probably be cool, but he's not one I'm personally fired up about. But the Horsemen have constantly made lackluster OG figures shine and made me want them, so I have a feeling I'll be one of the converted once we see him.
Looking forward to this figure, the demon feet have always been weird to me but I'm sure they will still be present. I may grab an extra Fang Man and switch out the boots.
Ninjor was one of my favorites back in the day, and I really am looking forward to seeing him redone in Classic style! I will let him and Jitsu team up, for some double martial arts trouble..!
I grew to like the demon feet because I decided that he and Zodac are from the same alien humanoid race, and not "Human" like Adam & Teela are. Since he & Zodac have the same feet but humanoid appearance.
I prefer Zodac from the GL two-pack with the Keldor boots so I don't quite have that angle on it. I like the monster feet on Ninjor because I thought he was merged with a demon or dragon or something and not a purely human guy. Don't know why him being a demon hybrid ninja doesn't excite more people actually given how often I see objections to something as Earth-bound as a ninja being on Eternia.
And he's one of the few vintage figures I'm most interested in finally getting so I hope he's coming soon!!
I always felt Jitsu and Ninjor were related.
