    MOTUC Man-E-Faces speculation/discussion thread

    So Lay Ze-Man posted these very fun pics, and it got me thinking...


    We know all the figure's heads can pop off and be exchangeable right?

    Well who better to make full use of that feature than Man-E-Faces!


    (I so hope they look to his packaging artwork here for the "look" of the figure!)

    How cool would it be to be able to interchange his head with the others?!

    Now you may initially think it's not possible because of his helmet... I would be willing to bet the 4HM could figure it out.

    I think you could have the helmet be one piece that's removable, but that the top part that "switches" the heads around fits onto the top of Man-E's head. Man-E's head can then pop off like all the others.

    You could even have Man-E's armor be removable like all the others, so he can share the upper and lower torso parts with He-Man, Skeletor, MAA and most all the other figs.

    What do you all think?

    Then Man-E-Faces not only has his three forms, but he could become any of the other figures and truly be MANY FACES!

    He even could potentially come with FOUR heads!
    One sculpt with all three faces, like the standard figures we've always had of him.

    Then one complete human head.
    One complete monster.
    And one complete robot head!

    So Man-E-Faces could share parts on his torso, and his legs. (TrapJaw, Roboto)

    He'd have new arms, new armor, heads, helmet and gun accessories.

    I'm sure it could be done! What say ye?!

    I'm in!! And pack in a lot of weapons!!!

    I like the idea of him being able to use any figures head but at the same time I think it may make the helmet look too bulky. But like you say, Baena, the 4HM could probably find a way to make it work.

    Id rather 1 dial head with 3 faces, THEN you can remove that and add the other heads too.

    Best of both worlds.

    I don't know that it's entirely possible because of the different head, hair and helmut sizes (think Skeletor - big head, Teela or She-Ra - lots of hair and Man-At-Arms/RamMan - big helmuts) but I really like the idea. I'm all for innovation and playability!

    I hope the give him all the Man-E-Weapons weapons too.

    I always thought it would be fun if there were more "dials" you could pop in. One with the standard faces, more with other faces, skull, alien, reptile, etc.....

    I think this most plausible idea. Imagine a set of 4 or 5 different "dial head" themes and perhaps each dial would have a different coloured/design spin toggle switch.

    Yeah, I don't imagine the helmet being used for any other head other than the spinny head.
    Which in my mind is why it must be removable from the rest of his body armor.

    But danielsan52 makes and EXCELLENT point of having other "spinny" heads!
    I love that idea!

    I'm not sure it would work, but hey if they can figure it out, it would be an awesome feature for Man E, after all he is the master of disguise!!

    It's a cool idea. I like the idea of just the dial, but the this would be a lot of fun. I think it'd be awesome if his head is a helmet somehow, no matter what's underneath.

    Okay, that makes more sense. More spinny heads would be AWESOME, but I don't think Mattel would go for the expense. I'm sure the 4HM can figure something out though.

    Baena: I am in LOVE with your Man-E-Faces ideas. Very very awesome. I want the exact toy you have just described and I want it ASAP! You get a sticker!
    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

    You could just have a couple different Spindles with other Master's faces on it.
    1 spindle with good guys one with the Classic and one with bad guys.
    It can be done.

    After seeing Zodak, and how He-ro's undies were reused, I can see them reusing the same undies for Man-e, along with Trap Jaw's alternate arm. And then just having a helmet with a rotating head made to stick on a standard Torso instead of having another Torso made just for him.

    I bet extra weapons is coming !
    3 of 5 is already made and they need those last two for Buzz-Off and Stinkor.
    IT WOULD BE SO COOL to have a sticker like the 80's "yellow star" that says "Free weapons inside... limited offer!".

    They have got to have a Man-E-faces in the works along with a Mekaneck. I think we would all be missing something if we didn't have those guys.

    I think Man-E will be one of the few figures, like in the original line that will be different as he will be a unique sculpt body wise. He will also be one of the few to actually keep the action feature he came with originally.

    I'm all for getting Man-E-Faces asap.
    He was my first MOTU figure, and I loved him.

    But if I'm not mistaken, didn't Toyguru say that he would have the spinning faces reature?

    He did, yep.

    This new idea doesn't remove the spinny head feature.

    Can someone refer me to where Toyguru said this? I know more-than-likely in the Q & As, but which one? This is one answer I must've missed.

    Thinking back, why didn't they ever use the Man-e-faces Body again? They could have made an evil version and given him different faces... Oh well.

    With all the articulation they are giving these figures, I don't see why they wouldn't just give him the helmet with the turney head inside instead of multiple heads.

    I love the idea!!

    Just I think it'd be way too expensive for Mattel to attend anytime soon...
