    Can Super7 Give MOTUC Figures Their Action Features?

    Title says it all!!! Would you even want the classics figures to be re-released with action features? From the basic twist-waist on most figures, to the spraying feature on Kobra Khan, or even the spring loaded arms on Fisto and Jitsu? What do you guys think? Would you pay more for this?
    My post count just got bigger.

    They probably could but they won't citing something like they couldn't because of cost...etc etc.

    It would be cool though...

    I don't necessarily want the individual action features, or even the spring-loaded waists. What I DO want is updated articulation, such as hinges on the wrists and better ankle-rockers.

    I think it might be too late for the first batch of Ultimate Editions to have these, but I hope this happens at some point down the road.

    I think you'd need to sacrifice ab crunch for the spring loaded waist. Otherwise there would be no room for the spring.

    Ick, no. If they change anything, I'd like to see subtle updates to articulation. More hidden pin joints, more articulated wrists and swappable hands, Thundercats style ankles... nothing that would dramatically change the look of the figures like double jointed elbows and knees though.

    I understand folks not wanting action features on the classics but where appropriate of like to see the animated cartoon line from filmation get some action features. I always thought action features made figures come to life. Maybe ram man could get his ramming action. Whiplash his whipping action. Fisto his punch. Mekaneck his popping up neck feature.

    No.

    Useless increase in cost.

    It'll never happen. Thank goodness.

    Don't want action features if they add to costs and hinder the sculpt and/or articulation.

    Would rather have extra heads/hands/accessories.

    A Million times NO. Brian Flynn is still doing the Vintage 5 inch MOTU line that's where you will find your spring loaded waist and action features. Keep action featurs out of Collectors Choice & Club Grayslull & Thundercats. 4H design extra parts to mimic a vintage figures action feature as needed like they did with Mechaneck.
    Looking forward to the rest of 2016 with Collectors Choice, Club Grayskull & Thundercats.........Excited for 2017 with Brian Flynn of Super7 & Four Horsemen taking over the MOTUC's, Club Grayskull and Hopefully Thundercats collectors lines

    I'd rather not see action features…unless it's integral to the figure like Man-E-Faces' rotating face plates or Roboto's gears.
    200X fan? Classic fan? What does that mean? I'm a MotU fan!!!

    No. Only the essential gimmicks are fine. I would have loved a modern Battle Armor with the flipping panels, but I find I really wouldn't use it much anyway.
    Recent.... HATMOTU Beast Man & Evil Seed
    Coming....
    Wanted.... Filmation Mer-Man, Teela & Sorceress
    Considering....
    Needed.... MOTUC Lord Masque

    Oh man, did I forget to use these [sarcasm][/sarcasm] again? Sorry....

    Check here for my My collection page, MOTU and more!

    Nope. I'd rather have them more poseable and aesthetically pleasing
