    Slamurai- Heroic Ninja for MOTUC



    From the unproduced final wave of vintage, I'd like to see him get made. He'd make a good arch enemy of Ninjor. He's also the type of figure that would likely be an easy to make exclusive figure for a convention or online as well.

    We can at least surmise that his colour scheme was a majority of light colours, but I don't think that he's a straight repaint - especially of Ninjor. There are clearly some different pieces. In my mind he's a combination of white and gold.

    I can't stop wondering about that "blob" design on his chest; what was that supposed to be?

    Nah, let's keep earth-style designs to a minimum in MOTU.

    I totally agree. It's awful. There's a really good reason this never made it... There's no imagination to this character.

    All of this. Errol's art is amazing, but the character designs are all awful.

    It's the colors that bring those designs together.
    I'd buy all of them! And Storm Sha... eh.... White Ninja looks awesome!
    Press down on dragon's head. It sprays enemies with a jet of water!
    Press down on a camera's shutter release. It will take pictures that tell stories!

    This is actually the only one form this unproduced wave of vintage characters I would buy. I suggested the name Ninj-Ro in another thread.
    Could make a good Power-Con exclusive. Wouldn't be a straight repaint but could mix and match parts like Camo Khan did. To save any new sculpting I'd be fine with the chest symbol being the same Ninjor's but painted a different colour.

    The best design in this Strobo wave are the Black Snake Troopers, Strobo itself and I believe the White Ninja is a cool concept its like Jitsu for Fisto. Everything else feels pushing the issue.

    It's the only one I wouldn't buy, it just doesn't interest me like the other ones do.

    Like I mentioned in another thread, I'd buy it for sure. I think he'd make for a decent army builder.
    Could be a Power Con exclusive & I'd also army build them if there was a red ninja repaint.


    What can I say? I've got a soft spot for ninjas....

    The 'blob' is the outline of Ninjor's chest logo, which would have been superimposed onto the image. Presumably they were like Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow and came from the same clan.

    Interesting. If anything, it really makes me want to get more story than picture on these designs than anything.

    I would like to see this figure and the others from the proposed line. I see these as a potential Preternia Powers of Grayskull line. Ninjor is a bit demonic whereas this white ninja appears more human.
    Grayskull needs its Cardboard Spacesuit MOTUCized

    A white heroic ninja would be very cool! I would buy all characters of the 1988 Wave!

    His action feature shows a Japanese-style kanji inside of the blob.

    My guess is they would have used He-Man arms/legs in the vintage line. But for Classics they could use OO-Larr forearms and shins, plus any of the various slim profile boot feet in the line.
