    Imp?

    Is Imp a filmation character or is he fair game for the Classics line? If he is fair game, would you want an Imp figure packaged with Hordak (should Hordak get the Classics treatment)?

    I personally would love an Imp figure. It would beat the red bat shaped piece of plastic that came with the classic toy.

    I would love an Imp figure, but I'm pretty sure he's a Filmation character.

    Imp is a Filmation character. You won't be seeing him anytime soon.

    I think if they make Imp in 80's/200X Hordak's colours and make it so he clips on Hordak's arm, he should be fine. After all, Imp is Hordak's "shield" from the classic toy.

    If Imp is available, I say both. Honor the classic figures and the cartoon.

    Personally i would like ANYTHING better than that red thing. I absolutely HATE accesseries that I don't know what the heck they are.

    I do not like that red thing.

    I always hate the "horde weapon" that had the little clip that released. Later I guess it was decided that was a "crossbow"... I don't know, I thought it was some kind of "thumping" device that gave the guys an extra 1/2 foot reach... Lame

    I always hated the snake men staff. until 200x showed it to be magic like Skeletor's havok staff... Now Its kinda cool. For Hiss. Tung lasher doesn't need a Havok staff.

    Some of those accessories seemed like random junk, just so mattel could say the figure CAME with SOMEHTHING.

    My preferance is to only give us accesories that are worth having. Either in "play" mode or at least story mode via mini comics. if I knew the snake staff had power it would have been sweet. If the "red thing" houses Hordaks power... Cool. If whoever holds the red thing gets to rule the horde SWEET.

    Otherwise just give him another sword or a gun or something.

    GREAT QUOTE.

    I say, if Imp is somehow fair game, do him. I'm not a huge fan of his, but I know I would buy whatever he came with, and grow to love him.
    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

    imp both

    Imp was in Filmation which they can do now! Imp also was in a magazine poster or a promotional toy poster when the horde first came on the scene! So in some ways he could be with the right research could be both filmation and classics!

    A show accurate Imp would look out of place unless they tool him up to make him fit in more.

    As much as I love Filmation and it's original characters, I couldn't stand Imp. If they did a "Classic minis" pack with Kowl, Imp and Look-ee I suppose it would be okay.

    i'll take the red bat any day over those annoying filmation lil guys...

    But...there is, unseen by most, an underworld, a place that is just as real,
    but not as brightly lit... a darkside.

    I dont need an Imp figure: I am perfectly fine with the imp red guy we have already. I'm fine if we got one, but I am in no way saddened if we did not.

    I have always wanted a cartoon accurate Imp. I had a little rubber bat that was blue back in the day that I used for Imp. I have wanted one for years....

    That toy promo poster clearly shows Imp and the red bat as two different things. I very much want a Fiilmation accurate Imp at some point, along with ALL of the other awesome lil' guys from the cartoon.

    I wouldn't mind a Red Bat repainted as Imp in a future weapon pak. But a original Filmation Imp would be awesome too.

    Imp and the red plastic bat are two different things. One is a bonafide character and the other is a weapon or shield of some sort.

    The evidence...

    I've voted for an Imp figure because the red plastic bat is not more than the Horde mascot to me. It's pretty boring, and Imp is an imposing character I always liked right from his first appearance in the "Secret of the Sword" cartoon film.

    Classics made Imp a character, instead of that whatever it is the Vintage toy had....Plus when he is painted blue and detailed....he can look almost like the cartoon.
