No no nonono! to the Twistoid repainted as Robot Knights suggestion.
If we are ever to get Robot Knights, I want them just as I remember them from the cartoons. Same way I want Marlena with a green dress and Adora the way we received her in MOTUC. :skgrin:
Those warriors were humanoids, and I think they would be much better as a Classics army than a bunch of tin cans.
He made a total of 12 I got 5 of the 12 he made. They we're not mass produced. And he's not going to make anymore.
i always liked skeletor's robot knights. i was suprised they didnt show up in more episodes as a kid. i always figured: "why bother fighting he-man all those times when you can just send the troops" it would be interesting to see what the 4H can do with them
I pushed it pretty far on the colours, and that still doesn't look particularly close, shall we say...
I'd rather have skeleton warriors, either from the old comics or the MYP series over this robot knights. I'm not a big fan of Skeletor relying on technology and robots (or a robot army) all the time. Using Faker once or twice or having Tri-Klops or Trap Jaw build something once in a while works for me, but otherwise...no.
Look what I just made! I'm planning on making an "AcultCollector's crafts and customs" thread with downloadable character cutouts, as well as miniature MOTUC mini comics and miniature instruction booklets, and other fun projects you can make yourself!
That would be cool too.
He-Bro what did you use for the background? Also, how do I get a hold of some of those skeletons? I've been looking but can't find any that don't come with the play set. Ideally I'd like to get enough to fill up my Battle bones :skgrin:
A little bigger would be nice yes.
I definitely want these guys one day. They are long over due. An army builder 3- pack would be great.
One day they had a sale for $7.00 for the play-set, so I bought 5 of them, (I already had one, so now I had 6 Mutant warriors. Most of the sets I gave away to Good Will (Without the mutant Warriors, one I sold on eBay.)
I figured that if they sold the figure separate back then, he would have been about $7.00 anyway, so same price.
So what you are saying is that I own 2 figures from a 12 figure run? :hmconf:
I didn't buy mine on ebay. I bought them from the website.
Anyways, I love mine!! :D
Yes, I would love to get the Hover knights, I always loved the design, and they make for great cannon fodder troops for Skeletor's army. Its a shame they can't just do something a similar, but far away enough design-wise that it wouldn't infringe on any copyrights. Hopefully they eventually get the filmation rights though.
I've said it before and I will say it again, Mattel needs to just pay the (I'm imagining, steep) price and buy the rights to the Filmation characters. I think the line has proven to be a success. Surely, they know that they could make even a Melaktha figure and fans would buy him up in a nanosecond...well, maybe a few nanoseconds.
As a kid I wanted those Filmation robot soldiers so bad. It would be great to finally have them as motu figures. I'm not as hyped as I use to be but I would still order 4 or so of them.
Right now I really would like the skeleton/armor knights from the 200X comic. I would buy several. same for the black/armor knights from the 80s movie. My love for the movie black/knights hasn't changed. They were cool.
I would love them. They're in my top 5 filmation characters that I wanna see get the rights to & made.
This thread needs a bump. I want Robot Knights in MOTUC!
I too don't care much for Skeletor using the technology but I would like the robots as a 2 pack.
Those custom robots are amazing
These strike me as Orko-style pack-ins more than anything else. Maybe do a $30 set with Dree-Elle & Montork vs. (2) Hover Robots?
I don't like the idea that Skeletor uses floating robots as a part of his army. I'd much prefer they Did the Skeleton soldiers from the MVC comic the Skelcons from the ladybird books and the 200x ram-headed skeleton warriors.
