Ram Man looks awesome! Thanks Veebs!
Ram Man looks awesome! Thanks Veebs!
Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate,
I am the captain of my soul.
I wasn't all that impressed with all the pics we'd seen at shows and whatnot prior, but that review really did a good job of selling him.
Matty, Great Black Wizard figure please!
This is absolutely the best Ram-Man EVER!!!!
200X fan? Classic fan? What does that mean? I'm a MotU fan!!!
Does Fwoosh have a review page up for Ram Man yet?

Best MOTUC figure...EVER!
Jii Dee regarding Matty's view on MOTUC Collectors: "Here be whiny surrender monkey dragons".
MOTUC NEEDS: Sssqueeze, Dragstor, Saurod, Blast Attack, & Lord Masque.
That figure is pure Metal.
Your support means more research for the Myostatin-challenged.

Ram Man is out of this world. Great first look, Veebs!
I am happy and sad about Ram Man. I'm happy to finally be getting him and happy his quality is good. I'm sad that no figure released after Ram Man will bring me as much joy as getting Ram Man. MOTUC is all downhill for me after Ram Man. After him and Jitsu, Mantenna and Two-Bad are my last must haves. That's not to say that there aren't still more figures I want. But I am extremely cherry picking now.

Barring unforseen QC issues (which often show up in these reviews, so things look hopeful), Rammy seems just about perfect. I'm getting used to the squint, and am very glad he is the same height as the other figures. Much as I love Filmation, I always felt Rammy should have been a bit bigger, eye to eye with the other characters. I think this is about the perfect size, with his bulk being his massive girth.
This one looks like a winner on par with things like Trap Jaw and Bow as far as setting the standard goes. And I would splurge for a cardback colored version, maybe an out of sub bonus figure like She-Ra 2.0. They paid a premium to make him with all the nw molds, might as well squeeeze some extra money out of them as there appears to be a good demand for this variant.

Anyway, on to Ram Man:
...well wait, I'm not sure what to say! He's just so obviously awesome that I can't think of much beyond "awesome!" He's got everything the original had sans his immobility, and it even looks like he's got a good range with the legs, considering the skirt (though the skirt is segmented so perfectly that I may end up cutting it anyway).
One question though: Can he hold other weapons? Looks like the hole in his hand is the same size, but I can't tell. I wana see if you can shove a spear in there.

And for different versions, I would have preferred the Vintage toy MAA over the one we got, darker green and dark green furries, but we at least got a semi correct colored armor set with SMAA. But I myself would have preferred a Filmation MAA, which I made as a custom from a Palace Guard buck, some paint and MAA accessories. And I am currently working on my Dragstor custom, I would love an official version, but if he never makes it to production, I'll be happy with my custom, and at least with my custom the official version can stay MOSC. But Two-Bad & Mantenna would pose greater challenges and need of more parts than I want to commit to right now, being personal customs, if they were client customs, then that would be different.
Recent....Flutterina, NA Skeletor
Coming....Rio Blast (sold already)
Wanted....Entrapa, Light Hope, (A real) Filmation Hordak & Clawful
Oh man, did I forget to use these [sarcasm][/sarcasm] again? Sorry....
He looks fantastic! I can't wait, already have his spot on the shelf picked out
Other than picking up Mekaneck, that will complete the Heroic Warriors for me (well I may get Sy-klone if I could find him really cheap, couldn't squeeze him into the Matty sale). I'm glad that he is wide and thick but not 200X huge (and really glad he's not 200X toy short. Awful figure, lol).
My list of "essentials" is a bit longer:
Two-Bad (last evil warrior I need to feel complete)
Horde Troopers (don't let me down, Toyfair 2013)
And despite always saying that I don't want variants, I'm starting to feel more and more like NA Skeletor falls on my essentials list. Plus I want to see what the Horsemen do with him.
Oh and of course Crita!
I'm probably leaving a few out, but my list of essentials is a bit longer and growing
It is spelled "Crita", not "Critta". Misspell her name and Crita will knock the "T" out of you!
Also...get her into the line!
Awesome "Yes Movement" avatar by The All American!
If these guys came out...
...the line could end and I would be satisfied in the end.
Am I the only one who thinks the second head is not only a bit unnecessary, but also doesn't look right on his shoulders? There's a great big gap between his chin and the armour.
Most-wanted MOTUC: Granita - Hunga the Harpy - The Melog - Melaktha - Vultak - Dylamug - Crita - Sprag, Sprocker and Spritina - the Twiggets King Ahgo
Great figure, 2013 starts great with Ram Man, Jitsu and Snake Face...
Ram-Man looks aweesooome!!
Why the black belt? a 200x element?
