How shall WE know?
Will he be the first totally original sculpt of the line?
Will he be done to resemble the rest of the line?
How shall WE know?
"Why's Dragstor riding on Night Stalker?" "Cause he can."
I'm sure he'll be original.
I guess he won't be the huge dude from MYP nor will he be the dwarf with spring-legs from Filmation. He'll probably be like the box art and the original mini comic.
Give this man some legs already. Leave the slinky's off him.
He certainly won't have his action feature, but I expect him to be short and wide. I also can't see him sharing too many body parts with any other characters.
I wonder if he'll have green legs like the toy or Red legs like the original box art? COuld there be a chase?
I'm hoping he has legs with no springs! It would be nice to see Ram-Man get decent treatment.
I would like it reseamble the original figure more....with a removable helmet and armor...a cool skull cap on his head underneath and massive arms...I loved the MYP version but he seemed a little too fat, he should be more short and stout...
Ram Man's long lost brother!
Yes no spring legs - or made to look like springs
I think he'll have thicker legs than the rest.
Ram Man will most definitely have to have a lot of unique sculpting/tooling. They might – although I hope they don’t – be able to get away with reusing the arms, but everything else will have to be new. And again, Legs, Mattel; the guy has been hopping up and down for over two and a half decades. He deserves some normal legs.
The extra costs will probably make Ram Man, as well as other more unique figures, be saved until later next year when the line will be deemed profitable or not. Once the figures are selling well, I don’t think the extra tooling costs will really matter.
Didn't the original illustration have an orange cloak or something?
That might be cool but probably too drastic of a difference for most. If the 4H copied the vintage Zodac illustration verbatim, then I'd expect Rammy to be orange. Y'all think that'd be cool?
/but yeah, at least separate his legs and don't make them look like the Michelin man's, please.
It will be awesome to see how he turns out, Im really hopeful that he wont have *that* action feature that ruined his other two figures. I think he is that different that he has to have his own sculpt. Come on, the man has no neck, he's got to be different!
I was wondering what other characters could be used from Ram Man parts.
Rotar and Twistoid?
I bet his arms could be someone else's pretty easily.
It'll be cool to see what the 4H cook up.
The one on the card back illustration is what we are gonna get and that's perfectly cool with me!
I just hope they don't go with the first representation of the Trap Jaw one though.
Dude had no actual jaw and no chest/shoulder plate.
That a weird one right there!!
Selected art prints now available:
I asked a question about Ram Man in WTFWTK 4 if Mattel would consider using a fan poll to help make decisions (kinda like with how theyre asking how many pieces buyers should be limited to buying)
Id like to see Ram Man as the MYP version being sold for a few bucks more than the standard sized figures myself.
They will put out quite a few figures with limited retooling, using the sculpts they already have.
So it'll be awhile before we see him.
But seeing as we're losing "action features" and gaining articulation, I think if he gets similar legs but with joints he'll be fine.
