    Jitsu is so awesome. I can't wait to see him show up in the line.

    Fisto is coming. Can Jitsu be so far away?

    Three things that I'd like to see in Jitsu:
    -Modular "200X" belt (Like Fisto)
    -Second Ponytail head without beard
    -NO VAC METAL HAND!!
    FINALLY!! GLIMMER IS IN MY SHELF!! Now who shall I fight for?

    I´m willing to bet that we will see Jitsu in 2013, since we get Fisto next year. I´ve noticed that it seems the big rivals are always a year apart:

    He-Man 2008
    Skeletor 2009

    Teela 2009
    Evil Lyn 2010

    Battle Armor He-Man 2010
    Battle Armor Skeletor 2011 (although variants I think will change to be the same year)

    Battle Cat 2010
    Panthor 2011

    She-Ra 2010
    Catra 2011
    (plus if you count Hordak as She-Ra´s rival, he is 2009, one year before She-Ra)

    Tytus 2010
    Megator 2011

    There does seem to be an exception to the rule, having Vikor and Demo-Man both in 2011 (jan and Dec respectfully), but they are both at the very beginning and very end of the year, so that might be an extreme example. However even still, in this new continuity there is no stated connection between the two of them. The only connection they have is that they were the prototypes for the main two characters.

    I wouldn't look into formulas with Mattel. Their logic makes no sense. Fisto was created almost a year ago, but was put in the wings to ease production as the factory was switched to something a bit more complicated.

    They plant the easy figures in between certain figures to keep the factory flowing and prevent any delays in shipping.

    That's what the kit bashed figures are for and Fisto really is a kit bashed figure.

    I think, figures like Jitsu, Stinkor or Spikor will be spared to promote the sub.

    Otherwise heavy hitters like MEF or Clawful were presented later this year.

    But he would be cool, I hope they get his face as right as Fisto's.

    do you guys think he should get extra treatment like motuc fisto?
    what i mean is extra head & 200x loin cloth.
    but of course having just one head is fine as long as he gets his topknot ponytail.

    I wish all the 200x line had been done in Stactions. Those things were sweet! So was Jitsu. Although for the Classics, I prefer an update to the vintage model... Perhaps with some 200x flair.

    Although, I'd much rather the 200x get their own treatment in MOTUC, much like Fisto's head and Zodak.

    ...I'm hoping for him next year, as he's always been a fave, and he's the last of that "wave" of baddies (Webstor, Clawful, Whiplash, Kobra Khan) needed to finish it out! Personally, I'm hoping they follow the formula they utilized with Fisto, and give him two swords (one long, one short) a raised collar (unlikely I guess), and a 200X-staction-styled removable loincloth & head! I'm totally crossing my fingers on this one. Would love a more reasonably-scaled version of the 200X hand too, but super-unlikely on that one...

    I would have preferred Jitsu before Fisto ... oh well!

    I also want a Chopper figure, from the early Filmation episode. Perhaps if the fans don't want a Chopper and a Jitsu, this figure could come with a removable left hand to swap in a second, left-handed golden chopping hand? Please Mattel!

    I believe Jitsu and Chopper are the same character

    Fisto will be released in February 2012. From what spoilers revealed, it seems that Clamp Champ is on the way. So I guess Jitsu won't take too long to be released. My bet is that we should get him by June 2013.

    Of course, I'm excited about Jitsu being included in MOTUC !

    It would make more sense to put Jitsu in the first 3-4 months to promote the sub. Jitsu is a massivly fan-demanded figure, Mattel really needs to show these fan faves, while selling the subs.

    With a good exclusive and a few other vintage bashers, Jitsu would do his part to make sure it sells well!

    Oh yeah! Oh yeah! I need Jitsu and it's quite easy to made, we need just a head, a hand and a sword (the same of Ninjor! Eh! Eh!).

    I would love to have Jitsu! Very cool character. Hopefully they'll use Fisto's huge bicep along with a gold hand of some kind.

    Personally I would love to see him with a fist like he has in the 200X statue with the green orbs and the robotic fingers. And an add-on belt guard in Jitsu's 200X style like Fisto had. Also wouldn't mind if his normal hand had an arm guard and boots like he does on the statue either. Though if they couldn't do straight out new boots for Jitsu then they could maybe just do standard He-man boots with gold and red shin guards in that style added.

    Depends on how you look at it I guess. Yes, Chopper in the Filmation episode became Jitsu in the MOTU line - I guess similarly to how mini-comics Goddess became the Sorceress.

    However, technically Chopper is different to Jitsu - he had 2 golden chopping hands.

    For those of us who love the ability in MOTUC to represent different versions of the same character with swapping heads etc, it would be a simple thing for Mattel to pack in a golden swapable left hand. Plenty of folks here want the second 200x staction head with the ponytail, so the different heads could be used to differentiate Jitsu and Chopper in the collections. (Alternatively, Mattel could really spoil us with a completely new cartoony head for a chopper figure - given Jitsu will not represent that much new tooling in any account, just new heads).

    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 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.
