Oversized hands for me!!
I was wondering if most people here want to see Fisto & Jitsu's right hands to be the closer in size to the 80s figures or the 200X line. In the classic mini-comics, their hands were similar in size to their action figures. However, the Filmation cartoons increased the size of their hands, so what we got from the 200X line was inspired pretty much from the Filmation toon. Now, I can honestly see Mattel/4 Horsemen packaging both figures with 2 hands, and if they weren't thinking about it, you can all thank me for planting the seeds...lol. But, if they were to only come with one hand, which do you prefer? I hope it's the oversized hands. I remember loving Fisto when I first got him back in the day, but when Filmation increased the size of his hand, the figure started looking dismal to me. That's why I was so happy that the 200X line gave him that same oversized Filmation hand (with hydraulics). Jitsu's hand was bigger in the Filmation toon, but not to the degree as Fisto. However, He is sort of the counterpart to Fisto (or was that Clawful?) so, his hand certainly deserves an upgrade. And who here didn't love his hand on his staction? Just awesome. So, what do you all want?
Oversized hands for me!!
There are two things in this world that scare me and one is nuclear war.
The other...carnies. Small hands and smell like cabbage.
Fisto and Jitsu should not be Carnies.
EDIT: Mossman...on the other hand (Small hands...and give him a hint of odor)
Closer in size to the 80s toys. The huge hand of 200x Fisto already was stretching it for me, and the 200x Jitsu's hand is insanely large even compared to the other big-sized 200x stuff.

I prefer the smaller hands of the 80s line.
Given the fact that these figure are line-for-line reproductions of the '80s character designs, I think it's pretty safe to say their hands will be proportinate in size to the vintage figures.

Yep... About like this is what I'd like to see.
They are getting smaller hands. It's what came out in the eighties.
The big weapons was something the 4H thought of and did for 200X, because the MOTU were supposed to be so powerful that they could use oversized, more intimidating weapons easily.
I think a better question is would you want the Fisto/Jitsu hands to be articulated or to have different versions of those hands?
I know they aren't doing that since the normal hands weren't articulated.
I want them to be similar in size to the 80's versions, which I'm assuming is what we'll get. I didn't hate the overly large 200x versions, but I prefer the original concepts.
I really want Jitsu's hand to be metallic gold like the original, too. And, I'd actually like it if Fisto's were metallic silver.

I think somewhere in between the original size and the 200X size would be cool, although I won't be upset if they're the size the original figs had.
Gotta admit, as pretty as staction Jitsu was (Ya can tell they worked on Mandarin Spawn ), the hand was ma-hu-sive. I don't think Jitsu would have walked very easily without dragging it.
The classic style for both guys I think.
Kinda hope Fisto has his head brace too.
JITSU!!!! Thank the Elder Gods!!!!

I'd prefer smaller hands like the 80's toys.
And!!! NO additional hands please! That's a terrible idea, sorry. I don't share everyone's current obsession with additional stuff like heads, weapons, BAF body parts and so on. I just want straight individual figures, based on their 80's versions. Maybe I'm a more easy to please collector than most others in this forum. I'll take what I get. I don't need to tell Mattel or the 4HM how they should do their work. I don't really care about the "correct" colors, head sizes, claw feet, mustaches and so on.
Hey, SURPRISE me!
But!! I definitely don't want each figure coming up with a bunch of "spare parts".
pwwweeease Mattel, do it for me!?
oh, and the size they had on the original is my choice. And I'm kinduh with Matt79 a little bit, but not as extreme. I don't mind something extra. But we surely don't need every figure coming with an extra weapon, an extra head, AND somebody else's body part! I think we should pick a camp and rest there, if everybody keeps suggesting tons of accessories, they'll all get over looked. Just one bonus, if any, is enough for me. I wouldn't want it to take away from the intention of the figure too much.
