    I want both Fisto and Jitsu to have their "classic" looks, but I can handle the 2002 "steampunk" look to Fisto's hand. Although, if the MOTUC Fisto has a giant hand, Fisto better have one as well. I also want Stridor and Night Stalker more than Panthor.

    King Randor with a new head and arm...I'd be surprised if he isn't made this year.

    I wonder what the 4H will do to jazz up the design?
    Probably the 200X green jewels in the Classic Golden hand. Maybe his 200X sword.

    If they wanted to jazz it up just a tad, they could hive him a He-Ro gauntlet on his left arm, and paint it kind of like that mini statue.
    They could add a little detail/paint apps to his metal hand...otherwise, I'm clueless as to how they could jazz up the purely vintage look.
    Although as we all know, a great paint job can work wonders.

    Davidtoothey did a good job on his custom. But I do think the hand needs to SHINE!

    I also hope to see Jitsu sooner than later. I would prefer
    a more classic approach, the only elements I want from the
    staction figure would be detail in his gold hand, and upper armor
    that differs from Randor, other than that, he wouldn't need much.

    But if they are still going to be going with the "at least 2 accessories" rule, what would his 2nd accessory be? An extra hand? I'm not sure he warrants a 2nd head.
    Hmmm a second hand?

    I think it would be pretty cool (and Cheap) if they gave him both the chopping hand and a gold FIST...

    Y'know... IF they need two accessories.

    There really doesn't seem to be much they CAN do with Jitsu, right? Unless they hook up a detachable 200X sash and head. Maybe they can do some new things...

    Wouldn't it be wild if he had some kinda of body tattoo when you remove his armor?

    I'm up for a Jitsu MOTUC. I had Jitsu in my army of villains as a child and would love to have him again. I wouldn't mind the staction sword or the updated armor look with the flipped up iron collar and the forearm gauntlet. Just shrink the over-sized hand and of course make it a reflective gold and it would be awesome. If they decide to include the ponytail I would hope they make it detachable. Otherwise, another surefire winner of a crony.

    Jistu staction is one of my fav. Amazing, really!
    But I hope in a classic style for the classics line. No mix for me...

    Jitsu's pretty cool, but I am not getting my hopes up for any kind of 200x-style armor. It's most likely going to be a straight-up repaint of Randor's (in my opinion).

    The only thing that gives me a little bit of pause is the area where Randor's cape attaches ... this could be a good place to do a collar like the staction's (which I personally would really enjoy).

    I can see them going with a staction influence on the sword (but I hope they keep the original red-orange color for at least part of it) and the hand. I just hope they limit that influence to detail and not size.

    I also wouldn't mind if there was a little staction-styling on the head, like a longer pony-tail and that more angular bone structure.

    And I agree with the majority that I want that hand shiny, shiny gold. That was awesome!

    Do you think there's any chance of new feet with a more tabi-boot style to them? I wouldn't count on it, and I won't miss it, but it could be cool.

    I do hope they give him a vacuum metalized hand. I wont be too disappointed if it's just painted gold, but the shiny hand would really make him stand out.

    I never got into the Stations other than King Randor and "classic colored" Evil-Lyn, but I hate that Jitsu hand now that I look at it. As non-P.C. as it may be viewed by some, Jitsu need his hand in a "karate chop" design and not as some giant robotic hand.

    The Jitsu staction is cool, but it may go too far out of the original character. I mean, you see this Jitsu and you don't think his the arch-nemesis of the 200X Fisto, even if the colours, boots, etc, are better than the vintage. I think it's a bit like Zodac, it is so differetn that they should make two versions; if I had to choose one, I will choose the 200X in MOTUC, because I have the vintage and not the staction (I just hate non articulated figures).

    It would be great if he has his golden-chrome hand, but if He-Ro's armour wasn't, I don't think they would do it.

    P.S: By the way, you can see how a Jitsu MOTUC based on vintage would possibly be in this custom I made; http://www.he-man.org/forums/boards/...d.php?t=179695

    Dang! That Staction is incredible looking!!!

    That said, I sincerely hope that JITSU doesn't have a hand the size of a small car. That's just too darned big. I'd rather it be an artificial hand that's either the same size as a normal hand, or just slightly bigger.

    Just my opinion.

    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):

    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.

    I'd be totally shocked if we don't get the 80s version and the 200X all in one.

    I have a feeling they didn't make the new torso for Trapjaws removable arm to just use it with him.

    Jitsu and Fisto, I would guess have to be coming the same way. That way you can make em in to whichever era you wanted. It's a pretty safe bet we wouldn't see two different versions released of these guys anyways. Might as well do em all in one. I just hope the 4H FINALLY get to release the 200X fisto sword when they get to his release

    I personally wouldn't mind it so much, but I do agree with you here. The arrows/crest should've been kept more generic if Mattel intends to use it for both characters. I think it still works though.
