Card Back Version!
Also if it's SUPPOSED to be flesh tone... WHy doesn't he turn green when's monster and Silver when he's robotic? If he's wearing a suit that's explained... if its skin, I don't get it...
I say that I want any of them but I want him as soon as posible!
Honestly, I'd take both, but given only one option, I think it's time for the cardback version!
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
Orange without a doubt. Vintage styled and in the flesh tone he looks like a naked guy with some strategically placed tubing
more orange with the magenta bright glossy colors!
I will NEVER believe that Mermista beheaded Mer-Man! You sit on a throne of lies.... and smell of beef and cheese, bio writer!!!!
My vote is for vintage toy colouring. It is time for more colour on the heroic warriors! Too many bland flesh-tone heroes. The cardback option looks like the poor actor hasn't seen enough sun and would be picked on in the schoolyard. Besides, I think the orange-colour better suits the monster face and the cardback helmet is way too big and bulky!
I would prefer something in the middle with these mock-ups. The pale seems a bit too pale and the orange is a bit much. I cannot wait for MAN-E!!!!
I always thought he was "nekkid" under the blue parts, but if the orange was supposed to be a suit like Man-At-Arms green, that's fine conceptually. His face wasnt orange right?
But if that is his skin, I'd prefer the non orange skin, cause his face shouldnt be orange. Oh well. We'll see. No matter what, he'll be one of my favourites.
Orange for me, though I would not mind a cardback version down the road.
I like the card-back version better.
He-BroLot's of figures for sale on eBay now and some start at $1.
Prices dropped for the holidays - Buy a Pookie or a Castle trap door in my My Shapeways Store - also some cool custom accessories like the Diamond Ray of disappearance, TrapJaw's Attachments, Coridite Crystals, Horn of Evil, Tytus Hammer, etc...
I think we are going to get the orange version in keeping with the toy look which is reasonable to conclude based upon the past. I wouldn't mind seeing either version though. Of course the version they don't use could always end up being the second release of the figure at some later point. I'm going to go with the orange version to start with.
It's all about being polished when it counts!
Orange. I always felt the orange skin was one of the things that set MEF apart, much like skeletor's blue skin.
All they gotta do is to release both versions, plus a new possibly greenish colored one so I can display all three heads.
Your support means more research for the Myostatin-challenged.
Flesh tones for me. Maybe a bit bronzed, for an orange-homage, but the original toy just looks like a cheddar cheese nightmare.
If I had to choose, I would take the toy-colored version. That's the one I remember and recognize. The flesh tone looks weird to me. I'll get him no matter what, though.
I like the flesh tones version better.

Personally, I'm really hoping for card-back colors. For me to be interested in buying a toy-colored version for myself, I think the orange actually has to be more orange. The almost brown-orange color of the figure wasn't something I ever liked about it as a kid. Plus, the poor paint apps on the arms and legs over the blue never seemed as thick as they should have.
All that being said, I'm guessing we'll get toy colors and I'll either give my subscription figure to a friend as a gift (if it's this year), or I'll only buy it with card-back colors if it's after this year and DR isn't doing fulfillment.
I always thought the cardback/mini-comic colors were kind of dull/boring, and I still do.
I like the orange/blue/magenta color scheme of the toy and cartoon, and that's what I'd rather have.
Hopefully they'd re-release him as a bonus figure with the other color-scheme down the line, though.
Either way, I hope Man-E-Faces is released soon!
