    I know I am probably in the minority here but I've always prefered the Filmation version of Modulok over the toy. I think that version is easier and less expensive to make. He can come with the two heads and a special tooled peg to place both of them into the same neck.

    It is not a bad idea...

    Nonetheless, I would rather get a more elaborated Modulock even if that translates to increasing the amount of money we have to pay to get him.

    Modulok- The ultimate BAF?

    Hey MOTUC fans,

    Just a silly idea really- but what would people think if the next 22 figures each came with a BAF (or collect & connect ) piece to create MODULOK -'EVIL BEAST OF A THOUSHAND BODIES!

    Would it put you off the figures? would you buy figures you might normally pass on to complete modulok? or would you not care either way?

    Mattel already stated that there would be NO "build a figure" option for MOTUC !

    Fortunately ! Because I wouldn't like to feel obliged to buy 22 figures to complete Modulok and 22 figures to complete Multibot !

    I'm a completionist and probably would buy the 22 figures regardless (but then also because) of Modulok.

    I hope they get to make Modulok, even if you can't take him apart and re-arrange him. I wonder what the 4H could do with that character.

    Even though I would perfer Modulok to come completed
    in a cool box of some sort, I'd be all over the BAF idea.
    I just want the mad scientist ... whatever the way!

    I think it would be pretty fun. I buy all the characters anyway but it would not be fair for people who dont get every character.

    I think that would be a great idea, although I think they could pack in a couple of parts per figure so it could be done in about 10 months. I can see why MOC collectors would hate it, but BAF's are becoming more and more common these days.

    I think Modulok will probably eventually see a release as it's own carded figure in the line. Probably won't happen for another 2 or years, though.

    For Modulok, I'd like to see Mattel sell him at the oversized beast price like Battle Cat($30), so we can be sure he gets lots of parts, and they can afford to make everything modular like the original.

    To help make sure he sells well, hold a contest with a few awesome prizes (like a 1 year Club Eternia subscription for example). The contest would be to create the craziest Modulok monster out of multiple Moduloks. So you'll get a bunch of added sales of folks buying multiple Moduloks to enter the contest.

    I would buy fewer figures.

    Build-A-Figure/Collect-And-Connect, while I don't care for them, I understand their purpose in a mass market toyline that may have shelf-warming figures people are on the fence about. However, when the closest thing we have to a shelf-warmer right now is a bonus figure that takes just about 2 weeks to sell out, it's generally pointless.

    Besides, I'd rather just pay the money to have the pieces of Modulok all at once.

    Or, I could just have someone customize my three red Parademons into a Modulok.

    Noooooo!

    Oh Yeah, I wanna pay $700.00 for Modulok! NOT!
    I love Modulok as probably one of the most inovative toys of all times, long befor Bionicles & Stikfas, but that would be the most horrible way to get one I could imagine!

    I think Modulok will come as a seperate SKU item, with many swappable parts and such.
    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

    Being a MOC collector, i wouldn't get to build Modulok. It certainly wouldn't put me off collecting if they decided to go this route (hope not lol).

    I can picture Modulok in a regular package with the 'extra' parts fit inside e.g. Trap Jaw or if they decided to release him 'whole' they could make a special package like they did for Battle Cat.

    I'm against the BAF idea for Modulok or Multi-Bot. I'd much rather see each one released on their own as a large scale figure (like Battle Cat) in a single highly articulated form (preferrably the main large version as pictured on the front of the 80's box). I know there are supposed to beasts of a thousand bodies, but seeing as this line puts articulation first with no action features, I'd prefer single highly articulated versions of each. I just hope that Mattel's quality control ensures that the joints are tight. I don't need the interchangeable parts as I display my collection much more then play with it.

    I really hope Modulok isn't a BAF. I'd much rather him be an individual release in the Battle Cat size/price range. Not only would I hate to have to wait for a year or more to collect all the pieces, but I'd hate to have to buy each figure (even ones I'm not interested in) just because I want Modulok so badly.

    modulok & multibot figures are probably not going to have the swappable parts option like the original toy in the 80s cuz its an action feature. that is fine with me as long as modulok & multibot comes out.

    a stander ed figure with two heads (like too-bad) & four legs (like mantenna) with the tail would look fine.

    they can re use too-bad's body for the two heads for modulok & the four legs of mantenna to save on re tooling.

    what do you all think?

    I wouldn't exclude out the possiblity of not seeing Modulok in pieces. Not really an action feature as more as a characteristic. It really wouldn't be much effor for the 4H to start making parts to make him, but more of the tooling.

    Because of that, I have some hope we'll be seeing him. Probably not in 2010 or 2011 but sometime.

    I like your idea danielsan52 . I never liked the original toy but I could see the 4H one looking fantastic.
