If he's unique enough, send me one!

I wasn't fussed about getting a Red Best in this line at all until I saw him in the third new mini-comic. Now I really want him and am dying to ready a bio for him, is he the leader of his race like others in that panel, maybe even on Randor's council or his he the only Red Beast allied with the Masters, it looks like he might even be leading a group of beast men. I only want him as a regular size figure though, no need for him to be oversized IMO.
I had bought an extra Gygor to make this custom but the more i think about it, i dont like the gorilla body for him (I'll just use it for the red gygor instead). I would like it either on the Grizzlor body or more if they were to make him larger a new bear style beast.
Oh yeah, gotta have this guy. The look is cool and we need more of this type of character in the line.
I would hope that, after getting Vikor and Demo-Man, they'd finish this trio and give us Red Beast. They really need to. Even if it is a non-sub item. I want him.
I am a little confused as to why he appeared to be a good guy in the mini-comics. Hopefully he is evil, and was just teaming up with the good guys, like Skeletor did, to defeat Hordak and King Hssss.
I personally would like to see him oversized, and with a brand new "bear buck". He looks like he should be a huge, berzerker that was used in pit fighting. The "bear-buck" could be reused for other beasts like the Ice Hacker or the Purple Beast that He-Man (Oolarr) fights to save the Goddess in the first mini-comic. If they make him standard sized, they shouldn't give him fur like Grizzlor, because that was HIS gimmick and no one else should have it but Grizzlor. Sculpt him to look just like the drawing, and I'll be fine with it. ;)
I hope they make Red Beast, soon. Vikor and Demo-Man look pretty cool together, and I'd like to see the trio completed. Hopefully he was slotted into 2013 before all the complaining about concept figures changed the roadmap.
Honestly, after Jitsu it's the never-before-made figures that will mainly keep my interest in the line.
The Red Beast is *essential*, IMO. It is the third concept sketch character that defined the feel of early MOTU, if not the look.
Mark Taylor's 3 sketches (Vikor, Demo-Man and Red Beast), Roger Sweet's mock up Trio (Vykron), and Tony Guerrero's original prototype sculpt (Son of Vikor?) would be an amazing display for everyone's MOTUC collection, and I sincerely hope Scott can eek out these last two somehow before the line is put to bed.
I would support both The Red Beast and Alcala Beast Man in MOTUC. I would like them in regular figure size.
I'm for it.
Red Beast is in the mini comic as a FULL sized beast so that's how he should be not some normal figure....:skconf:
I think reusing Gygor's body, gives Red Beast more chances of being released, because that way it can be faithful to the concept of Mark Taylor, without the need for too many new molds. Also, with a larger size he would differ from Beast Man and Grizzlor, and besides, who wouldn't like a big red beast among its Classics? :beblsh:
After seeing Axel's coloured art posted on the Matty blog I want this guy more then ever. After getting Vikor and Demo-Man we can't not get this guy, we need to complete the set :hmgrin:
This is in my top five most wanted. How could someone not want this figure?
I think this guy would be great.
He is long overdue!
I love the idea of a Red Beast figure. If they used Gygor's body, added the bear-like features and made him ride-able by other figures? Fantastic.
One of my favourite things about the Classics line has been the realization of concept and prototype art/ideas. I love the FFM, I love Demo-Man, I love Vikor, I love Vykron, and I even love BG Teela. These were some of the first figures I got my hands on when I started collecting. As many have said, a Red Beast would fit in so perfectly with many of these figures.
I had only thought it'd be a normal size figure, but it would just looks so cool, fit so well. We need another unique use of that buck.
Boy I hope it happens in some ephemeral 2016
and just before I posted I actually clicked that artwork. It was this very artwork but painted. as posted below by 1377.
I really want that Red Beast now.

Yep, this picture
I do not want him to be oversized. And judging by his size in his minicomic appearance, he won't be.
But, still...glad to see he has other fans. I want him more than almost anything else at this point. Like, top 3.
As everyone else has said, this fella completes a display and a great part of motu history. Not sure what the demand would be like for him. Would need a pack in or alternate armor to drive up the demand
