    Your Opinion of Mantenna?

    I did this last time when Grizzlor made his big appearance and got a great turnout that really showed what the fans thought of the furball. Now that Mantenna's made his debut, what do you think?

    Personally I was a bit thrown off at first by those big, comical, yellow eyes, but once I took in how the rest of his face looked I was quite happy. That screaming mouth full of needle sharp teeth, the creepy alien ferocity that's displayed, and the way his head's sort of thrown forward really make him creepy looking. I love it. He's really colorful, but as it's keeping with the original's look and doesn't look really garish or anything, I can enjoy it.

    This one's a winner as far as I'm concerned. Now I can't wait to see what they do with Leech!

    I hope that after all the blahblah around here over Grizzlor not looking like he did in the cartoon, that this will make people happy.

    This is exactly what I hoped the 4H Mantenna would look like. I think I officially have a new favorite statue!!



    And if anyone thinks he looks too colorful, I say take a look at Snout Sprout - his colors in the final product aren't nearly so glaring.

    For the record, I also thought Grizzlor was done very well, just not quite what I had imagined. I still like him, though. Mantenna I'm 100% happy with.

    i think he is AWESOME! i voted that I would have done something different, personally i would have changed the crossbow colour, but that's it. even that isn't a big thin.

    You know, it's tough to really put my finger on what Mantenna reminds me of. I can see some kind of crab-like creature maybe, or an alien mutant, or even a big-time mutated parasitic organism created by Hordak. I dunno, but looking at his crossbow the bolt looks like a mess of little sucker tendrils coming from its mouth.

    So gross. But I like. just makes the dude more creepy and repulsive.

    Personally, I'm neutral. NOT because of the staction. I just ain't too much of a Mantenna fan in general. Because of that, his staction doesn't excite me as much as f.e. a Modulok one could.
    The sculpting is awesome nonetheless. Great mix between classic toy and cartoon looks IMO. My only complaint is the bright yellow on the crossbow, but maybe the color just looks brighter there than it will be later.

    So, I'm neutral on the character, but dig the sculpt. Thumbs up!

    I think its great, I mean there was not a ton to work with due to the fact that he was very childish looking in the Filmation toon and BRIEFLY seen in the MYP version, all the other renditions I have are either too far in between the animated and extreme horrific so this looks great to me. LOVE the weapon

    Do his eyes pop out , I know its a statue but that would be neat, but then again I guess that would be an action feature so it wont be there

    If he can't have pop out eyes I think he should have been sculpted with them extended.

    But then again that probably would've made them super fragile wouldn't it?

    His weapon is cool in design but I think the final product should have take it down few tints.

    These are nitpcicks of course I'm thrilled to be getting the big freak!

    That's exactly my thought. I wish it had pop eyes sculpted and the bow was a little less brighter.

    But apart from this the figure is extremely awesome !

    Spot on perfect from my POV! Definitely a winner.
    People who say certain characters should never be remade is stupid. Throw rocks at them.

    I support Filmation characters for MOTUC! Let Mattel know it's worth their while to get the rights to those characters!

    I think he looks freakin awsome!! The only thing I would change,would be to tone down the yellow on the crossbow.And like many said,have the eyes"popped"out.Also did anyone notice the blue "eyes" on the crossbow?I thought it was a nice touch,and it kinda looks like the shape of his head.You never know,maybe they'll make 2 versions on him,w/ and w/o the eyes popped out.God help us if they do.One mor thing I noticed,was the feet look like Kobra Kahns?

    I think that the 4H did a good job having a middle ground on Mantenna's eyes. The way they are now, they're not popping out, but they suggest a huge build-up of pressure that may cause them to erupt forward at any time.

    HE'S AWESOME! Easily my favorite of the Stactions so far!

    And I can't help but suspect that there will be some customizers with popped-out Mantenna as soon as he hits.

    Mantenna is simply amazing. I couldn't imagine him looking any better. And aside from Hordak, he has always pretty much been my favoriate Horde character, so between the awesome design and the simple fact that it's Mantenna, I couldn't be more excited.

    In fact, I'm extremely excited about Wave 3 altogether. We get Mantenna (and I just expressed my feelings about him), the Sorceress which I've been waiting forever for and I am beyond excited about her, and Tung Lashor who was never really a favorite character of mine but I've wanted them to make more Snakemen to go with the figures that were already released, so I am more than thrilled to get another character who was in the new series.
