    Coolest action feature?

    OK, I'm sure this has been done many times over, but I couldn't find anything on the search feature and I'm curious to what everyone here thinks was the coolest action feature from the classic line.

    I'm really torn between a handful of features. I loved Webstor's grappling hook. I thought Stinkor's stench was awesome. I even thought Leech's sucking didn't...suck.

    But my favorite was probably Kobra Khan's mist action. That goes for Dragon Blast Skeletor and Snout Spout's hose as well. And Khan was the first, so I'm going with him.

    Feel free to "write in" a figure if they are not included in the 10 I listed...
    You should never underestimate the predictability of stupidity.

    I'm torn between the two I played with the most: Mosquitor and the Battle Armors...though Leech is pretty high up there too.

    God, I miss awesome gimmicks.

    HANDS DOWN THUNDER PUNCH HE-MAN!!!!!!!!!!!

    They combined a cap gun with an action figure, and it just doesn't get ANY cooler than that!

    That's what I voted as well. I suppose Dragon Blaster was my favorite actually, but Khan was first in the "water shooting figure" department. What I loved about Dragon Blaster Skeletor was that you could hit your friend's figures from across the room if you aimed carefully. I guess I was a bit of a jerk when I did that, but it was fun.

    For me, it's a toss up between Moss Man and Saurod. (just recently got Saurod..noticed the FASTER you pump the switch, the more he shoots flames....cooooooooooool... ) I also like Khan and Stinkor....

    .....yeah and Mosquitor's gimmick is cool too....but I liked it better on the Gr-Gory bat Mattel made in the seventies...

    Too many favorites for me I guess...

    On individual figure I'll go with the battle armor, they were cool variant (which are not a bad thing when they're just some) and that battle damage feature was way cool.
    On the action feature, I'll say my favorite is the waist twist punch. Sure, about every figure had it, but it was one of the coolest feature on the MOTU, and one that made it distintive. It didn't altered the look of the toys (I didn't liked the Thundercats button on the back), and gave back cool action. When I talk back to friend about MOTU, when I refresh the memory of some that haven't seen any for years, thet always mention back this cool feature. It was simple, it worked (and it still on figure that are 20 years or older) and was distinctive.

    I thus really like Fisto, Jitsu and Ninjor karate chop.
    The other ones I really like are Mekanek (kinda silly but fun), Stonedar and Rokkon (Comet warrior that can be cool Eternian scenery all in one? Neat!) and of course you could loose an entire evening dismembering and reforming Modulok.

    Stinkor's smell. The best action feature of any figure ever. Best of all, my Stinkor still has his smell.
    I have the power!

    Chris here...

    I voted for the Battle Armour figures' action features - I only got these figures for the first time a couple of years ago and they're so much fun!

    As a kid my favourite was Leech's "sticking" abilities - I remember suctioning him to the fridge in our old kitchen! Ahhhh, those were the days! Other favourites were Roboto's working "gears" in his chest, and Moss Man's lovely pine scent.

    Take care...

    Totally agree! That was the most awesome gimic ever.

    A close second was Modulok though...Lego meets MotU figure...heaven!

    considering the many amazing variations in cool action fetures in the motu classic line you really need an "other" option in your vote. I would choose snake faces' feature. That was very cool for me, but if i Had to vote on your poll it would be for mosquitor!

    I like very much Stinkor´s smell. He smells very bad. He is a great toy.

    I went for Battle Armour He-Man/Skeletor's chest - I loved playing with these as a kid - for some reason I got hours of enjoyment out of this one gimmick.

    I know one can only fit ten options on a poll, but no spinning (Sy-Klone, FF He-Man, TC Skeletor, Zoids)? No sparks? No tongue? And most of all, no 'spray cold water on the girl's t-shirt with precision (Snout Spout)?

    Mosquitor's chest easily is the best. Scare Glow would be second for sure and I always liked Mantenna's eye action feature as a kid also.

    For me, Mosquitor. He was by far my most played with figure. Extendar comes in second, but they are all awesome, It's a really hard choice!
