    MOTUC Jitsu Discussion thread

    After fooling around playing with motuc He man and Beast man with my daughter I looked up and saw the Jitsu Staction looking down at me with disaproval. I got to thinking how BADLY I want Jitsu done in Classic form. While I'll be happy with an updated vintage one for sure, BUT I'm Crossing my fingers for a lot of the 200x statue to be incorperated with him. The pony tail the armor updates I'd love to see the boots BUT I'm betting I wont I'd pay extra for the HAND to be articulated but I dream too much I think. Any other love for JITSU out there?

    200X jitsu Staction is my favorite.
    I prefer statues to Action figures so of course my preference goes to jitsu staction.

    I would pay a lot to have an other big statue of jitsu made by the 4H... I already imagine a diorama with Jitsu and Fisto

    Anyway, I'm waiting for the MOTUC version of jitsu of course even if I already know it won't be as great as the staction is IMO.

    AH, kindred spirits. I love the Jitsu staction, pretty much most of the stactions and figures from 200X. But in my opinion, I think MOTUC Jitsu is going to be just as puffy, steriod-adeled, swollen headed, and boring as I find all the other figures in the line.

    You guys are preaching to the choir.

    Have you gone to the 200X petition yet in my sig? If you want a MOTUC version of 200X Jitsu, that's the place to go if you loved the 200X designs and want to see their triumphant return!

    Sorry,
    Jitsu was my first and most loved toy when i was a kid and I have to say that even though I have multiples of the statue and love it, if the classics Jitsu is done with the "200X" styling I will NOT be buying it. I highly doubt it will look anything less than the classic seeing the results of the first figures of this line and that makes me very happy

    I would love to get a MOTUC Jitsu. He was one of, if not my favorite figure when I was a kid. However, I was not able to order him when the mini statues came out. Which was pretty sad. Two of best MOTU figures in one wave (BA He-man and Jitsu) and I could not get it. Now I have to some how find them on ebay but they cost way too much.

    I do not care if he came out like the classic figure or 200x. Just to get him would be enough for me. I do hope that Mattel will reproduce the 200x in the same scale (but I don't want everyone the same size, ie Beastman should be bigger than Skeletor) as the classics. Ofcourse, the only way that could ever happen is if us fans make the MOTUC line a success.

    I hope he comes with a shiny gold hand and not a dull one like the staction.

    And THAT was my only real gripe about the 200x version well that and the eyes area of the face.

    The Shiney Gold hand ROCKED.

    I'll take Jitsu any way I can get him BUT I Think the wait will be very hard on me even though he's really just a new hand, head, weapon and armor or new chest pieces if they go that way. Still alot more do-able right now then ALOT of figures in the "possible" line. It wil be a miracle if we ever see characters like Extendar,Rio Blast Leech King hiss($$$ - ALL NEW MOLDS - $$$) IMHO.

    Ohh, He will! And if he doesn't come shiny, he will be within MINUTES of coming out!

    Guaranteed!

    Hi, well i love the 200x motu, but most of my liking of that line comes from the subjects being quite recognizable as coming from the originals. Jitsu, perhaps, was the most modified charcter, and i am not crazy 4 him because of it.
    Have to say, however, that i dont understand you comments about MOTUC being "puffy steroid adeled". To me it looks like the 200x were exactly the same as long as body size is considered...i mean, look at the size of those muscles!
    Am i missing something?
    Cheers!

    In light of the armor/repaint scenario with Evil-Lyn, I did a quick Photoshop mock-up for Jitsu... I think we can get him pretty easily... basically I just swapped the colors out, swapped the head out (but still used Randor's as the base), got rid of the cape, and added the staction chopping hand (though I scaled it down a good bit to be more in proportion):

    Hey that looks better than I thought it would. Nice mock up.

    Great job!
    Again, If they want to share the armour again they shouldn't have copied the RANDOR 200X weapon crest so obviously on the the stomach to make it coherent for RANDOR. They should have kept the armor more generic then.

    If Jitsu has the same armour I will feel cheated and it would look cheap.
    But you are right, that hasn't stopped Mattel before.

    The Official Jitsu thread

    I think I can make an official thread, I couldn't find one and I'm really psyched to finally see him in MOTUC form!!!

    Its great to finally have an Asian character in MOTUC (Not sure if Ninjor counts as he's a demon like creature going by the feet.), for me personally at least, and I really like the way the Fur Horsemen have updated him.

    Loving his menacing stare and that he not only comes with his classic sword but also the Kamas from his 200x staction. I also like that they took the staction hand and shrunk its design.

    I would have liked the belt that his staction had, or an interchangeable ponytail and top knot, but I'm really happy!

    What do you guys think?
    JITSU!!!! Thank the Elder Gods!!!!

    Jitsu looks friggin awesome! Such a characterful face - glad we avoided goofy this time. Figures like this really make this line fantastic.

    I think they did a great job on him, at least better than what I've expected. Can't complain really. Let's just hope they won't mess the mass produced version.

    I'm seeing a pattern in Jitsu's head, Icarius' head, Fisto's head, and maybe Bow's head... Are they sculpted by the same person?? Who ever he is, is very good, but his heads don't go well with the rest of the line... They are TOO good and TOO Hyper detailed compared to He-Man or Man at Arms face.

    It's just part of the problem with having a successful line. Inevitably, the newer sculpts will begin to outshine the older ones. The first sculpts were supposed to recall the 8-back and they did that admirably. Now that we're passed that, sky's the limit!

    Yes, they are.

    And agreed that I wish all characters had this "serious" a take on the head sculpt.

    I'm glad he's coming relatively soon! I was worried he would get put off until 2016 or '17! I really liked the classic toy a lot growing up, especially the color scheme and chopping glove. Very glad they went classic most of the way here and didn't add too many staction details. The knives that will clip on to the back and the green details on the glove are all the staction details I needed added here
    And seeing how well his gold turned out without it being vac-metalized gives me hope for an Entrapta figure that will look similarly kick-ass in gold paint.

    I loved the Jitsu staction. So immediately seeing the Jitsu reveal, I thought he looked awesome. However, he needs the second head with the long hair in a ponytail!!! Mattel, please justify the raising of prices $5 and showing me a sword and 2 sickles that are one-colored as accessories. A second head would more than make up for that.

    A helmetless Zodak head and Jitsu. The best ever MOTUC reveal day for me.

    I can't wait to have those guys here, teamed-up, space kung-fu'ing suckas left and right.

    Instead of making a second head with ponytail.. just include a broken off ponytail.. Then he'll be just like the staction.

    I saw a picture of Jitsu and his sword was chrome.

    Does anybody know if that's a real item or just photoshop magic?
