    MotUC Leech Discussion/Speculation

    If they get to leech, what do guys want his head to look like? In the 80's he basicly had a disc where his mouth was which was due to the action feature. Now there won't be any action features...

    Any suggestions?

    TBH I'm pretty sure that the Staction Leech was very similar to the vintage version and were no drastic changes. Can the staction be converted to an action figure?

    I wish, but that probably won't happen...

    A Leech that looks like that would be amazing! Although, truthfully I think that's out of the realm of possibilities because it looks strikingly like the Filmation Leech in PoP.

    not a fan of the huge lips, because then it looks like his power isn't suction, but kissing.

    I'd say similar to the Staction would be a better compromise.

    I prefer the staction look, myself. Those lips are just too silly, IMO.

    Nice combo of the toy and cartoon Leechs.
    A mouth like the original toy would look a bit silly in this line, and I didn't like the way the staction's teeth were protruding from his lips.

    The new Leech should definitely be bulky, as he was one of the chunkiest of the original toys.

    That makes me wonder how many characters will actually get two heads.

    I can't stand the thought of several figures having multiple heads. That seems ridiculous to me. I think they should create one design and stick to that, instead of producing interchangeable body parts to appease every person. They should create variants to be sold at the same time if people want the different versions of each character.

    I still think it's ludicrous that there are no action features on the upcoming action figures. So, not only will we have "snap-on" action features being suggested, but multiple heads too. It'll be like a big pile of Moduloks.

    These things don't make me feel as if I'll be collecting real action figures, but "build-a-staction" figures.

    Mike Bock:

    DEFINITELY like that. If they're making these bad boys without action features, this model would be perfect.

    the Staction Leech didn't either, and I like what the 4HM did with it.

    Agreed. They could produce it with the switchable hands like roboto & Trapjaw.

    Mind you, I actually dont really want suction cups. I always loved the action features, but I always wanted figures to have a definative non action feature look, which works great in this line.

    But again, I like nods to the action features as aditions. LIke Mekanek's neck is going to work.

    The amazing Steph did this concept for Leech and I think it represents a masterful blend of both vintage and modern aspects.

    Love that concept and I would love a similar MOTUC Leech or also one like this FAB custom.

    Leech has a great colour scheme and the filmation colour stands out a mile rather than the dark green vintage one.

    What do you think of this?

    FINALLY!! GLIMMER IS IN MY SHELF!! Now I need a Crita!! Crita is to Mara what Evil Lyn is to Teela. If we ARE getting Mara, then we NEED Crita.

    I don't care as long as he's adequately girthy. Leech is the only guy who should be an utter hulking behemoth.
    People who say certain characters should never be remade is stupid. Throw rocks at them.

    I support Filmation characters for MOTUC! Let Mattel know it's worth their while to get the rights to those characters!

    Grizzlor too, according to his mini-comic.

    Is Leech really supposed to be so big? In Filmation, he was normal sized. The original toy had him pretty wide because of his action feature. And his mini-comic had him as a huge sea monster. MYP had him as a big dude. I don't own his staction, so I have no idea how big 200X Leech is supposed to be.
