Extra heads aren't unrealistic at all.Quote:
While I understand that some are "upset" over the figures, it may be their idea of what it should be is a bit unrealistic based on the parameters of this line.
That shows how great an idea the head swapping and removable armor features are, not how good the classic designs are.Quote:
I personally like the imaginative reuse of the buck-how your can simply but a He-Man head on Grayskull's body, stand him next to regular He-Man, and -even though at that point they are the same exact figure- look and feel different based on a few changes in paint and armor. It shows how perfect the basic design truly is.
Woooo! Classicized 200x refresh! Chant chant chant!
I agree though with the sentiment that if I'm going to be buying a whole new figure, I want more than the head redone. I expect the body/armor to be different too. Man-at-Arms can have a simple redeco with more 200x inspired armor (classicized, of course, not hyper-detailed) with something like an arm cannon that fits over one hand and a new helmet-less head. Evil-lyn hopefully could have a more 200x style outfit with her white/grey skin and two heads: one without a helmet and one with. If I saw these type of refreshes, I would happily buy these figures again.
I also think Hiss has parts for a 200X Khan, Squeeze and Rattlor
Long live 200x! We will have our day in the hot sun!
I personally dont like 95% of the 200X line, but I truly wish that TG and Co fought to retain the extra heads, so that others like MGM could enjoy this line (and the recent Buzz Off,Roboto and Grizzlor) as much as I have!
Aside from the Reversed shoulders and the soft weapons, I seriously cant fault the last three figures, but thats easy for me because I would like them as 'Vintage' as possible. Thats why I got on board the MOTUC Train.
hopefully A list variants will surface sooner rather than later, featuring Modern heads.
Cornboy says the 4H DID make a 200X Buzz-Off head.
Amazing news!!! Hopefully, like Grizzlor, this will be eventually released one day.
Regarding a "young" Adam:
I am wondering if there even is a place for a 200X Adam as a "young" version of the same character we know. We know that relatively soon after Adam united both halves of the Power Sword (during his early Battles against Skeletor) he was able to tap into the Power of the Universe to create his Battle Armor. From BA Skeletor's bio we now know that Adam starts to use his Battle Armor when he is 20 years old. Assuming that Adam has to be around the age of 16 or younger for his 200X appearance to make sense, I do not really see space for the 200X incarnation. What do you think?
Yeah, if they are going to make 200X stuff, I want whole variant figures.
I'll take whatever 200X I can get, but would prefer whole figures.
Evil Lyn, Prince Adam, King Randor, He-Man, Trap-Jaw, Buzz-Off, Roboto, Whiplash, Beastman, etc etc etc. I'd buy them all again, and Im sure they'd sell out just as normal.
I would LOVE a head's pack!! Fans would understand that a heads pack would have to cost more money than a simple weapons pack due to tooling and paint app's. If Matty priced them correctly, they could easily recoup their cost and make alot of collectors happy! I think the real reason they will never do this is because for every extra head we get, that reduces the number of variants they can sell us in the future.
The more I think about it, the more convinced I become I don't really want a 200X head pack but 200X variants. Imagine if they hadn't made a MOTUC Zodak at all, but instead made Zodac otherwise exactly as we got him but dark skinned, and later given us a helmetless 200X head*. That wouldn't be at all the same as the Zodak we got!
By releasing the 200X heads with variants, you can have all new tooling and recycling of parts that fit the 200X design better. I want 200X Evil-Lyn with new dress and an extra helmetless head, maybe even new boots. I want a 200X Buzz-Off with insect hands and feet, not crab claws and dinosaur boots. I want 200X Adam to be smaller and skinnier, not He-Man with different clothes. You can't get that with a head pack, but you can get those if they are made into variants with new tooling.
(*yeah, we still need that helmetless head...)
"Too morbid"???? Gimme a break! What are we Barbie collectors? A Head back would sell out faster that a weapons pack for sure. I usually don't gripe about Mattel's decisions, but that is ridiculous.
Since some fans think Clawful looks like a muppet, we need to keep this thread on the first page. I don't mean stickied, I mean in constant discussion.
Crab needs a head with no silly Eyebrows and smaller eyes... Right now he reminds me of the Gorn from Star Trek with eyebrows! (as in WORST IFGHT EVER!! Gorn)
