    The "Official" MOTUC Stratos Discussion Thread

    Who's hoping that Stratos will have some upwards neck articulation? Y'know, so we can pose him flying?

    I guess posing capeless King Grayskull figures like Stratos will give us an idea of the possible poses.

    Will there be a Caucasian variant with Beast Man feet, like the old mini-comics?

    Discuss!

    I am dying to see Stratos. I bet he looks awesome. So far all MOTUC have been amazing and I am sure Stratos will be no different.

    I like what you said about the neck articulation, that would be kinda sweet. But I don't think he'll have it though. I hope we get two versions of Stratos the blue wings and the red wings.

    I can't wait for mid September!!

    Yeah I think that Stratos will be just as awesome as the rest so far! It will be interesting though, to see what his feet look like. Will he have more human like feet or will he have the beast feet like on Beast Man? Hurry up mid September!!!

    just look at the original cardback picture; his feet are different from beastman's. I'm sure the new stratos will look like that, given that Zodak & merman look quite different from one another even though the original figures shared most of their parts.
    As far as the wings/jetpack, i hope they pack both colors in, or else go with the red wings, blue jetpack, since it was the most common version used.

    As some others have mentioned, I hope there is an articulated neck so he can look forward while flying. However, since I only display them I'm not too worried. I know he will be great looking and I cant wait to see him. Love the style and everything about this new line. Can not wait!
    Now Let me return the favor..... By DESTROYING YOU!!!!!

    even though i never bothered stringing up any of the toys i had of flying characters (for diaramas), i would like it if his head could look up for flying poses. it always seemed like a no-brainer for flying characters to be able to look up if you ever wanted to put them in a flying pose, but very few toys allow you to do it. what's the deal with that?

    Stratos has always been one of my favorite characters. I'm very much looking forward to his MotUC incarnation.

    Although I only really care about red winged Stratos, I would probably buy a bluewinged on to use as another Avionian, or as the evil Avionian depicted in the early mini comics.

    I think they should pack the figure with alternative wings and jetpack. That way we can display color scheme which we prefer. And only have to purchase 1 figure.
    Thought he looked very cool on the card back but head sculpt made him look like an apeman.

    Yeah, that actually would be a fantastic idea, and would please almost everyone. I would be sorely tempted to buy two anyway for display purposes.

    Not really. Even with the cape off his head is restricted badly by the hair sculpt. I think between the head and torso Stratos will be fine for flying poses tho. Since the 4H have made all the flying characters in DCUC able to look straitht up I think they will in this line too.

    He'll most likely have the ball joint neck. So yes, you will be able to move his head up for flying.

    He doesn't have all the hair and such to get in the way of the neck articulation.

    Now it would really be slick if they did a dumbell ball and socket joint in the neck/head.
    That's basically to say you have a ball and socket going down into the body, and it can move around, then the top of that piece is a ball, to go into the socket under the head.

    Xetheus of the Seventh Kingdom has this and it allows his head to "rock" back and forth on the neck post, so he really can look up and down nicely.

    One of my favorites from the original and the 200x line was Stratos. I can't wait to see how they do his wings--they probably won't be molded to the arms but clips sort of how we see beastman...should be a definate classic.

    Yea it will be good to finally see him.

    The bll jointed neck would be a good idea but it may be too late. production could already be in production.

    Stratos was one of my 1st figures as a kid. I actually had both versions, the red & blue wings. I recieved both versions for Xmas from my Grandmother & Aunt (along with the He-Man/BattleCat set .) I used to use the blue winged one as an Avion warrior. I am looking forward to Stratos in MOTUC!!

    I remember in the Mastering the Universe book Roger Sweet said he didn't much care for Stratos or Zodac , & thought they could have made better designs for them... but to this day, not 1 air warrior design has looked like Stratos, & I think that winged monkey design has so much charm & originality!!

    I'm hoping that Mattel will release two versions of Stratos in equal numbers. One with blue wings/red jet pack, and one with red wings/blue jet pack. If they do that, I hope they give a choice in ordering the figure. Red, blue or both! If there is to be just one version, then I'd want the blue winged version. That was the one I had as a child, and it wasn't the color scheme used in 200X - lets mix things up a little!

    Val, got a question...

    If Mer-Man is already known about (SDCC pictures and today's batch), what's going to get revealed on Oct 15th?

    We'll probably get some more shots of either Mer-Man or Zodac.
    It'll be a while before we see any brand new figures.

    This is all speculation on my part, but...
    I would venture to guess that it might be February 2009's NY Toy Fair when we get pictures of any future figures (Teela, Man-At-Arms... ???)...
    If I'm guessing the release dates of what we've been shown thus far...
    He-Man & Beast Man December 15 2008
    Skeletor January 15 2009
    Stratos February 15
    Mer-Man March 15
    Zodac April 15

    ... then that means the next unseen figure wouldn't be released until May 15 2009. So February (about 3 months or so before May 15) is probably when we'd get new figure pics. Boy, that seems a long ways off, so I hope I'm wrong!

    Skeletor and Stratos, Perfect together?

    Am I looking too much into it, or is there a reason why Skeletor and Stratos were pictured together? Is this a hint as to the idea that maybe they will be released during the same month? Any ideas?

    Yes, you are reading too much into it.
    It's just a photo.
