    But does it meet modern action figure standards for 1:12 scale articulation? It doesn't come close. The NECA Staction line was not a success. Modern action figures have to be articulated. Don't...

    Madame Razz has more articulation since she actually has a swivel at the knee. Mara may look good but it's 2015 not 1980. If Mattel wants to sell action figures they had better look good. I'm not...

    Let's see.... No boot cut swivel and BG Teela hips are certainly adequate reasons. :hmwink:

    There is a reason why almost all modern 1:12 scale action figures have tons of articulation and Mara falls incredibly short of industry standards. Mara even falls short of MOTUC standards. She is the...

    Works well how? It allows her to stand up straight? Her leg articulation isn't much better than an 80's Super Powers figure. Normally I'm a fan of Dan's reviews but he totally dropped the ball on...

    Snout Spout, Grizzlor, Clawful, Sy-Clone, and Buzz-Off were all sold at Big Lots for $10 each. I can't see Mattel producing another run of any of them and I would be shocked if they held on to any...

    Not only does she lack ankle rockers but she doesn't have swivels at the hips or at the boots. Her articulation is abysmal for a figure at aimed at collectors and is well below current industry...

    Bcrduke has a proven track record and has generously kept fans in the loop. Like he stated, sometimes Mattel changes their plans. This was just one of those times.

    It's been brought up, but the outcry hasn't been remotely loud. It's going to have be intense to get Mattel's attention. You'll miss the boot swivel even more since she has no hip swivels either. Her...

    The molds have been made. That ship has sailed. Mara will be one of the poorest articulated figures in the line. So far the era of increased prices has brought us fewer paint aps and less...

    It looks like the Mara prototype has no boot cut swivel and BG Teela's awful hips. She might as well be a statue from the waist down. What a terrible decision on the part of Mattel's design team.

    That is incorrect. Quite a few of the earlier figures had an actual second production run. Faker is a good example. The first run has a wide crotch piece like the first release of He-Man and Skeletor.

    Each figure should have multiple interchangeable hands considering the cost, Mattel's target audience, and standards set by other adult collectible action figures.

    Vikor and Demo-Man are concept characters that predated the vintage line and their inclusion is a well earned tribute to Mark Taylor. Dare is simply a character from a rejected pitch.

    Is Son of He-Man even a legitimate era? Without Scott's attempt to shoehorn it into MOTUC it would remain one of many failed pitches that never saw the light of day.

    Scott is responsible for the 2015 lineup including the inclusion of Dare. He is also the author of the mini comics. He is the one who decided to include characters from old, rejected pitches in MOTUC.

    A robot doesn't need a nose either but he has one. :hmwink: He has human features so I fail to see why a belly button is such a big deal. I would take a belly button over that flat ab piece any day.

    I loathe the flat ab piece. I would be happy if it was never used again. However, I do agree that the line could do with a bit less of the Trap Jaw legs.
