    Should Orko have his "O" or not?

    When Orko is released for the MOTUC, would you rather he come with his classic O on his outfit or his 200X look without it?

    Classic Orko all the way! The O shirt is just iconic in my opinion, and I can't wait to see Orko back in his old duds!

    I might be in the minority here but I liked the idea behind the 200x design. The 80s one was great but now I think it would look to simplistic for my tastes, maybe a mixture of the 200x concept with with the O included.

    I agree. I liked the 200x version. So maybe he'll have the "O" but also have the cool detailed trim and long scarf of the 200x version.

    That was my thought exactly. That upset me in the 200x line Orko needed the O, he was the only Trollan that had it, it helped seperate him from the others. Without it he doesn't seem as... special.

    I could be mistaken, but didn't the 2002 Orko have his O? Just on some medallion instead of on his shirt?

    Classic O all the way. I'd be surprised if they didn't use it.

    If I had to choose, I would say no"O," but as long as elements of the 200x design were kept, I wouldn't mind it if the "O" were included. and that sentence had more commas than is absolutely necessary.

    Yes he does. In fact the Four Horsemen said that they'd never leave out such an important detail as Orko's O, so it's a safe bet that the MOTUC figure will have it as well.

    I know it's off topic but when I read that I couldn't help but read it in an Austrailian accent.

    Why did Eternians have to repeat himself in the same post..?

    Anyways, yes I do believe Orko should have his O. Since all of the original characters will be classic-styled, he'd look very strange without it.

    Orko without the O isn't Orko, it's GORPO!

    ( if you've read the Filmation style guide, you'll catch the ref.)

    The O on medalion of the 200x one is more creative and I prefer it. But seeing as the line is classics (for the most part) then the usual O will do I guess.

    The most important thing is I hope he's in the right scale and comes with the magic trick!

    I agree. I thought that was a brilliant move.

    Hard to say, as I REALLY LOVE the 4Hm's 200x Orko! But this is a "Classics" line so, either way I guess...

    Of course Orko should have an "O", but I prefer the way it was handled in the 200X line. Yes this new line is subtitled "Classics" BUT I don't think the line will solely be classics inspired in design. Case in point King Grayskull. As he's the only MotUC figure we've seen totally fleshed out design wise it's clear that the design is classic inspired with some updating in detail and such a la 200X line. And, honestly this is what I'm hoping for. We've already had the 1980s MotU, we've already had the 200X style MotU. This Classics line hopefully will have its own signature style that makes it stand out from the other lines. So, again I'm hoping for a more 200X inspired "O" for Orko, with the over all size of the figure smaller in scale to match his true size.
