    Absolutely ecstatic about good ol' leech! he looks 90% accurate to the staction, and it almost uses 85% of new tooling. While I favor looks over articulation, I'll take this guy anytime....JUST DON"T MESS ANYTHING PLEASE! (I.E reversed something, etc) now bring on MANTENNA!! As for leech's real name...hmm SLURP-OR!

    What's the bet they reverse the hands and feet. Not just top to bottom, but right to left?

    Just to **** with us. Dang! I'm giving them ideas!

    Thanks for posting the pick with his head lowered to more of what the 4 horsemen said it should be AlesandraF. I can't believe how much better that looks.

    Was off at the Joe con for a few days, then nursing the cold I picked up there, so I'm a bit late to the party here.

    Very surprised at the reveal of Leech; given Hiss had so much new tooling, I wasn't expecting another figure in the same vein so quickly. I think they did a great job on him, taking the painted detail on the old suction cup mouth and translating it into a three dimensional horror. I really love the 50's monster movie vibe I get from him, which seems very appropriate to the Horde concepts (just like Hordikin's Nosferatu feel).

    I'm concerned that he has limited articulation at the hips like King Hssss & I come into this thread & people are asking for less head articulation.

    If you want a statue, buy a statue.

    I agree that hip articulation needs to be re-prioritised during figure design.

    Hssss not being able to sit down is WRONG, and now Leech (seemlingly) wont be able to bend his legs either, is just a spit in the face of what the Classics line was supposed to be.

    For me, these figures absolutely have to have to be able to pose into some approximation of that vintage figure-style crouch (because that's how I try to pose them all). It's been great that most figures have been able to do it thus far.
    For a bulky, hulking dude like Leech, that pose is soooo essential. That's going to be a real heartbreaker if he can't do it.

    It's just an assumption that we're making between the fact that King Hsss has a similarly set up hip area, and the fact that he's posed in that goofy straight-legged pose.

    I find it interesting, how important articulation seems to be...

    I actually glue some of the weak angle joints or knee joints as I don't need leg articulation and glue figures to the Grayskull stands fo an optimal standing.

    Heck, I even glued Hssss' human torso to his lower body

    I was excited when I heard we're getting Leech but was underwhelmed when I saw him

    I'm dissapointed that he doesn't have little mouths on his hands like the staction.



    I'm struggling to see how his wrist articultation will help his poses (Bow's wrists seemed pointless to me too though)

    I'm hoping that He-Man's head will fit in Leech's mouth

    For me the staction leech is the best and will be the best leech we will have for a very long time.

    The problem with Hsss's hips are the pointy tips at the top of his thighs. Do you guys see something like that on Leech?

    MOTUC Leech does have small openings in his palms. There are no tongues though.

    love the 200x leech. but dont like the tongues on the hands but do like the claws on them.

    i'd imagine leech must feed on very large pray on his home planet if he is a leech.

    I don't think he is a leech at all. He looks very amphibious with some reptilian traits (shape of head + teeth). His name is more like a nickname that only indicates his behaviour and abilities.

    I asked a colleague and fellow collector what were his feelings about the new MOTUC Leech.

    His reaction was astonishingly quick : "The body is OK, but the head is lame. He should have come with a head that was based on the staction".

    I cannot agree more !

    Articulation-wise, I'm really afraid Leech's hips/crotch will impair legs movement.

    Leech doesn't look great to me aesthetically, but if he doesn't even come with decent articulation, I'll pass. He can be second or third in command in the Horde, but for all I know, if hes' not visually appealing and is flawed (movement impairment), then I won't dish a crazy amount of money for him.

    I came across this tonight while searching for pictures of something else. I couldn't believe how much MOTUC Leech looks like that! if anyone's wondering, that's from the 1970's.

    Does anyone else think Leech looks horrible?

    Ok folks,

    So I'm realy not one to post anything bad about the MOTUC line since I am as exstatic as everyone else that we have this line to keep our collections and our enjoyment alive, but realy.... does anyone else see leech and say, "Wow, that looks terrible"?

    He looks like he is slapped together and ready, considdering the art the 4horsemen have given us before, the head looks like an amatuer sculpt.

    I don't mind enough to not buy the figure; after all, it's part of motuc history now (and not all vintage or 200X figures were that great either) but if noone says anything, we can expect more lousy sculpts in the future.. right?

    Anyway, this looks like just another opportunity for sculpters and customizers here on the site to make something better.

    the 200x Staction Leech was realy the upgraded look leech needed to look great.

    Nope, I disagree. I think that it's a great update on the classic figure. I really like the sculpt.

    I wish the stomach section was the dark dreen of his chest, so he would be wearing a "one piece" (like 95% of the media he's been in) instead of the bikini...

    About the head, I don't really like it. I never really liked the 80's figure of Leech because I thought his head looked ridiculous. His head looks good in the 80's comics, Filmation, the Style Guide, MYP and the 200X Staction. I LOVE the Staction. I'm very disappointed with his head. I really wish we got a second Filmation-style head (at least). I'll have to put Leech at the back of the display so I don't have to look at him so much.

    Whose not happy with leech's suction cup hands

    You know as a "collector line" one would think they'd make the figures a little more not kid friendly. I really thought for sure we finally get the non suction cup hands for this guy. I'm not happy with the way it looks at all they could have given him webbed fingers like a duck and that could have worked fine for me. I'm really not happy with this figure at all I don't even own him yet.
