    Should Stratos have toes?

    I didn't see this posted, so i'm starting a poll.

    I do hope everyone votes and that mattel takes into account what the majority of fans want!

    I have to agree...his feet look fine as is. To me, he's wearing booties or something, the hair line on his ankles covers up the top of the "shoes".

    He don't need no stinking toes. Besides if Mattel went back and changed everything that anybody complained about it would be 2010 before anything got released. It is what it is.

    I think he should have toes... The problem with the current toe-less look is that right now it just looks like the flesh and bone of his feet are fused, instead of like socks or shoes of some kind.

    It needs some extra detail to make it known if it's shoes or fused feet. ( personally I think the idea that Avions have fused feet are rather grose.)

    His toes are there...you just can't see them. Just like you can't see He-Man's toes. The toes are inside his shoes.

    Vintage Stratos had the sock feet. 200X had toes. I think it's better to have two different versions than one composite of 200X and vintage. You cater to both camps instead of turning off either camp with a composite version.

    I voted no. The original figure didn't so this one should not as well. When or if they do a 2002 Stratos then I'm all for him having bare feet. People keep forgetting that this line is supposed to give us the feel and looks of the original figures.

    I put no because I wouldn't mind if he had toes, but I'm pretty sure once stuff is shown to us that it's the final sculpt, so I'd rather The 4HM not go back and change something like that when they could spend that time working on future figures.

    I think he should have toes, but I like the figure either way. I understand both sides of the situation. If I had made the decision, though, that Flyin' Monkey would be sportin' some digits.
    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

    Well, it appears as if they're giving him Beast Man's left hand and yellow belt so who knows? He might get Beast Man's feet too.

    Well, it is kind of funny that the vintage BEASTMAN had no toes either, but the MOTUC version does. I'm not really sure why the new STRATOS has no toes.

    It's true XD
    It makes more sense having toes, I dont't really those socks/shoes you say... I feel more like if he had bare feet with no toes

    Because the cardback art "8-back" showed Beast Man with toes and Stratos without. That's the main source of artistic inspiration for the first set of characters.

    nah, his feet are fine as is.

    i'd rather they make each fig with small differences like this than just stick stratos' head on BM's body & call it a day.
    i'm glad they have diff feet, it sets stratos apart from Beast man; same with merman having his own hands and a different looking neck (from what I can tell) to set him apart from the others so they don't look so obvious that they're the same/or nearly the same molds. It's not the 80's anymore, so they can make them a bit more different than what they were back then.

    I hope they continue making future figures with various little differences to set each character apart from the rest. Like i hope they make Stinkor furry,using some of BM's parts, instead of just repainting merman with mekaneck's armor thrown in, and make Webstor more spider-like rather than using the 'reptile' molds (skeletor, merman, zodak, etc.). i do hope they do some of those later figures the right way, a way that makes sense for the character imo, rather than reusuing certain parts 'just because the originals were done that way'.
