    Hmmm, seeing Sllohcin's adjustments just cements my opinion all the more that Zodac is just fine as he is.

    No gloves please, not human feet either for this Classic interpretation.

    However, I could see a Black ZodaK with gloves and boots as a cool exclusive!

    Again, for me, he's already exactly how I want him.

    See for me the one on the far right with the painted gloves and non-clawed feet are exactly how I'd want him. Actually now I kind of wish that I hadn't seen them because I know if they don't do it like that I'll have to buy an extra one and an extra He-Man to swap out the feet.

    Well Im still all for this Zodac. After all why would I want one that was based off an incorrect interpretation when I can have the original cosmic enforcer

    After checking out Sllohcin’s picture I am even more convinced that I prefer the con version to the one with painted gloves. It just seems off to me, because the paint makes the odd shape of the forearms appear as, well gloves and not something otherworldly. This just makes the feet feel very out of place, almost like a man walking on chicken feet.

    If the gloves are painted I would prefer the third option where he has booted feet. That looks fine/normal, but for me, it has to be one or the other – Leave it alone, or paint the gloves and change the feet. I prefer leave it alone.

    I can eventually come to terms with the 'chicken feet' but if they keep the arms bare then for me to really love the figure they need to get rid of the things on the back of his arms that look fin-like. It's not that they don't fit him, I just don't like them.

    I like Zodac as he is.
    I just wonder what will be his weapons.

    Anyway, the thing I hope the most is that he comes wish his space sit in the MOTHUC line

    ... and maybe with white hands also

    I like the third one best. However... one other option here I could see:

    Leave the Skeletor style leg armor, but give him He-Man feet. That way, it looks like he has armor over the furry boots. Since the feet are articulated, I can't see why this couldn't be done. Even better, just give him smooth feet that look like boots.

    The only thing that i dont like in this figure is the 80's feet...
    I think that it would look better simmilar to the filmation series... White gloves!

    He's an alien. Why should he have human hands/feet? This is how the original toy looked and since classics is all about recreating the original toys with added detail, articulation and better paint apps, this is EXACTLY how I would expect and want Zodac to look.

    I'm still REALLY loving Zodac just the way he is! The more I look at the figures the MORE I'm excited for this line! I really can't wait for October!

    I like the figure as is except for one thing. His head is too small! I'm wondering if the head sculpt wasn't ready for SDCC, and they stuck vintage or commemorative head on him for the display? What does everyone here think?

    I think the unpainted arms just look really weird.

    Looking at the pic below, I would rather see the feet that Stratos was given on Zodac, instead of the Skeletor-style feet. They actually look like boots (which seems kind of weird for Stratos... isn't he suppose to be barefoot?). Those feet would look so much better on Zodac.

    I for one think that vintage Zodac is painfully boring, but I also think the MOTUC figure should look like the vintage Zodac if the line is to stay consistent.

    Some white gloves might be nice, but I'm not that bothered if we don't get them.

    Filmation style. Normal (human) feet in boots. White gloves.

    That sums it up.

    As crazy as it sounds, that would actually make the difference between me buying or not buying ZODAK. Even as a kid, I kinda hated ZODAK in 'monster boots'. I totally thought it took away from the whole 'slick, spacey' feel of him.

    While I fully agree that MATTEL is right to do ZODAK in classic style, I think it would be great if they did a 'Filmation' style version, too. Heck, they already have the mold for the boots.

    I like him as is. He's cool.
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    I agree about the feet completely completely. I would like to see him with Skeletor's forearms and shins but with He-Man's hands and Stratos' feet. But I understand completely why they would go the classic route and I still support him as he is.

    Keep him as he is and hopefully there will be a red gun for his weapon. No extravagant changes please.
