Two nice reviews. Although I was pretty much off of the vintage line by the time Scare Glow came out, so I don't have that nostaligic love for him, I'm really excited about this new release - he looks awesome!
I'm not overly fussed about Zodak, but even so he'll be a nice addition to my collection. Like the review said, a second un-helmeted head would have been nice, but probably not possible to budget restrictions.

i like zodak's boots! they're not as plain as they appear on mattycollector.
Between these two guys and Teela, I'm in MOTU heaven!
I will say it now...MOTUC will go down in history as the greatest toyline ever.
Something about this just ain't cool. I hope they intend on sending Dan these same figures instead of the lame Not-Quite-Re-Released-Skeletor figure he got stuck with. Where's the respect?
Looking over Zodak, they should have had his gloves match the boots. I will say that they would be perfect custom fodder for a Filmation-esque Zodac.
Your support means more research for the Myostatin-challenged.

Alexx has a blog?! Come on in and check out Toys and Tomfoolery! You won't regret it...until the next morning.
Good stuff all around. Mattel deserves a lot of grief for a lot of things, but this line really isn't one of them. At least in terms of the figures themselves.

I was on the fence about Zodak for a while but I am totally sold on him.
Scareglow looks great.
Can't wait to see the Randor review next month(?)
They both look really good - can't wait to get both.
Hmm no ZoGlow? Great reviews though.
– No comment.
More great reviews! I really can't wait for Zodak and Teela now! (And, of course, Scareglow, too!)
Both figures look fantastic!
And darn UPS for not delivering on the weekends!
I know right! I could have sworn that they used to deliver on Saturdays at least. IF they did....guess not anymore

I'm gonna hold out for Pixel Dan's reviews but look at the pics is all very exciting. Zodak looks far better than Zodac in my opinion. There's just more to him and having a character with a different ethnicity is important too I think.
Scare Glow just rocks! The face is a bit less cool than the prototype but it's still great!
I'm loving it all. Now we know the subscribtion is working fine, this is a great time to be a MOTU fan.
Selected art prints now available:
Zodak looks pretty good for what is essentially a kitbash. Like many of the figures it's not quite as nice as the prototype, but he's good enough. He's probably going to be my second favorite male figure in the line behind MAA.
Scare Glow on the other hand looks worse every time I see him. His cape is okay (certainly not as great as the fwoosh reviewer made it out to be) and his skull would make a good head for a 200X styled Skeletor. The rest of the body just doesn't fit with the quality of the head and the cape. The paint applications also look really bad overall. I'm not going to say it's the worst action figure ever made, but next to King Hsss I think it is the worst figure the Four Horsemen have ever designed.
