    Which Colored Wings For The Vintage Stratos Do You Prefer?

    To this day, I have no idea why Mattel decided to change Stratos' wings from blue to red in the vintage line. I am happy that I got the original color since I still like the look of the blue wings more than the red.

    I never realised there was 2 versions of Stratos untill a few years ago when I started collecting MOTU again. And I always thought there was only one true version (the cardback one) but looking at both figures I actually prefer the blue.
    I think it has something to do with liking the red jetpack better maybe?

    My vintage Stratos had red wings & jet pack. when motuc came out with Stratos with blue wings & pack I was disappointed. when the weapon pack came out I hand painted the straps & other areas so he looked like the filmation Stratos I even painted red booties. they look more like slippers.

    I never had vintage Stratos, or even knew there was two versions of him until MOTUC version came out.

    I'm really digging the blue wings on Stratos at the moment though i only own the red wing version currently. I don't mind the red but somehow, the blue just looks right on him.

    Red-winged version all the way! I remember, as a youngster, it took me quite a while to find him in the store. Or when I'd see him, there was another figure I'd want instead and would leave him for another time. When I finally got him, he had the blue wings instead and I was annoyed because he wasn't the one from the cardback and cartoon. I eventually did find the red-winged version (I assume Mattel switched back at some point) and bought that one to replace the blue-winged one.

    I barely care. For the MOTUC I want the Blue wings stratos, because it just looks right to me now.

    I havent liked stratos at all for years. MYP made me like the character, respect him, and both that and the FIlmation cartoon made me think he should have red wings. I've always seen it that way.

    But recently I realized it just worked better with blue. Thanks TRU 2Pac.

    The one I had when I was a kid was blue, so I always had a soft spot in my heart for those.

    Not enough to buy the figure again in the MOTUC 2 pack, but still.

    Roses are red,
    Violets are blue,
    As for the color of his wings,
    Either will do.

    I like the red wing Stratos better as he was the original version. I never even knew about the blue version until the Classics line, and then a friend of mine said he had the blue version as a kid. Weird. Red was first, also was that way on the package and in the cartoon.
