    Official MotUC Ninjor (Ninja Warrior) discussion

    Last night, I was looking over all of my original MOTU figures, trying to see which figures share body parts to try and determine who we might see sooner than others in MOTUC.

    When I got to Ninjor, I was reminded that he shared a body with Skeletor. And, it got me thinking.

    If we see a Ninjor in the Classics line, will he still use Skeletor's body? So far, all of the MOTUC figures we've seen have been faithful to the classic versions. But, do we want our Ninjor to have the arm fins and clawed feet? Or would we rather him be more human?

    And also, since the only thing he would need is a new head and weapons, if he does end up using Skeletor's body, does that mean he's close?

    Yes, I want him with the arm fins and clawed feet. If not, he's "Ninja" - not Ninjor.

    I agree. I want him to be an otherworldly ninja, not your average, run-of-the-mill cul de sac ninja.
    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

    I never had the Ninjor figure but am a big fan of the "Search for Keldor" mini-comic in which he's depicted as more human. So I'd be fine if they made him without the fins and claws. If they do, no big.

    Personally? I would dig a much more human looking NINJOR with those ninja boots with the split toe design. I loved 'movie' Ninjas in the 80's.

    Realistically, we will get a NINJOR made with SKELETOR's body because that was what was originally done. There's simply no question about it. I don't mean that to sound arrogant... I'm just basing it on what we have already seen.

    Still, I'm sure he will be extremely cool looking because the HORSEMEN rarely disappoint.

    I think it's cool if he has whacky skeletor legs and clawed hands. Were he more of a monstrosity, the more I'd be down with him.

    Human - just another Ninja.
    Monster - something fun for MotU.

    Rio blast is in a similar boat for me too.

    Make him more robotic, and I like him better.
    Make him just a human with cool gadgets? Meh, no thanks.
    Thats prtty much what MAA is,a human with gadgets,he does'nt have any powers,except a mind for science,but anybody can do that.I'm just saying.

    Well to me he never shared Skeletors body,because they all shared the same body,so you can't really say it's Skeletors and his alone.But the 80's Ninjor actually shared the same body as Fisto and Jitsu,and those body/torso sculpts were a little different in size.The were wider in the shoulders,and in the chest a tad bit.You have to look close to see it,and because the had to make room the pulling back of the arm mechanism for the punch,chop,or sword slashing/nun chucking.But to answer your question,I'd like him to be the same as his 80's counterpart.

    "A Ninjor with the Skeletor body is Classic" which is all the explaination that version needs.

    If you want a Ninjor with normal body parts or at least an explaination of the Skeletor parts (it could be just a costume), that would be a 200X version of Ninjor. No such thing, I know, but the 4H always explained or changed the rampant non-sensical parts re-use that the original line tended to do often. With MOTUC, we'd see no such changes so expect Ninjor with the Skeletor parts.

    I think the ONLY changes we might expect would be even more ninja weapons and aspects on his costume.

    No human parts make him classic. One of the main reason I like ninjor is cuz he's a creature ninja. Besides human parts would make him look more good then evil IMO.

    I'll probably get flamed for this...but Ninjor is one of those characters that I never liked. He didn't seem to fit with the rest of the "Universe." Again, just my opinion. Either way, I'm a completist and if/when they get to Ninjor, I will purchase him, and, in the "classic" way, I hope he has the Skeletor parts.

    I'm fine either way. I liked Ninjor a lot as a kid, but not because of his feet or arms. I'm indifferent to them. And I can get behind the demon-warrior angle (hence the arm fins and Skeletor feet) or the regular human angle.

    That would be cool. If they abandoned the arm fins, they could give him Stratos' feet. He's probably the most fitting character for the "sock feet" treatment.

    I do agree that they will most likley use Skeletor's body since that's what the classic did. And I too am fine with that.

    So how about his costume. Think they'll still go the cloth route? I'm sure they would have to in order to be done the right way.

    Ninjor had the more modern evil legs. So I think he is likely to have different feet to Skeletor.

    I hope he gets the clawed feet. I want him to be humanoid.
    If he is a plain human it takes the mystery out of the character.
    And like Joe-or said then he would only be a ninja.

    Clawed boots and human is good for me.

    I'm very excited to see this character in MOTU and hope he can show up in year two. (if not sooner!)

    I'm trusting whatever the 4H decide to do with him, will be the right choice.

    Like I said earlier they all should look like they jumped of of their 80`s cardbacks!! everysingle one of them. If they didn`t get a figure there are other references such as mini comics or card art, like how He Ro is depicted on Megator`s box I`d like them to be closer to the cardback than the actual figure

    I totally agree with you. The cardback art should be the inspiration for EACH of these figures.

    Geez you just love rubbing it in that you have all the figures! Kidding!

    I say leave him with the evil body and give him the cloth outfit. I always liked the idea that he could use his clawed feet to climb walls and stuff. Besides, that body is the "evil" body. Zodac had it because he was supposed to be evil originally and Ninjor, Scareglow, Stinkor, Webstor, Kobra Khan and Merman got it because they were evil. (and cheap to make )

    I think he should totally have the clawed feet and fin hands! Cloth mask would be cool too. I would think it would be cheaper than a 2nd head and it would remain faithful to the vintage figure.

    Yeah, Skeletor's arms and feets for me, because that's closer to the old action figure. I'm a little bit disappointed for the yellow parts on Mer-man limbs and the round wristband on Tri-klops (the classic figure had the same amor as He-man on the left arm) because that's different from vintage figures. So I do not wish to see a human-feeted Ninjor.

    One of the best things about MOTU Classics is that now Mer-Man, Tri-Klops and the rest look the way they should have looked in the 80s. The cardback art is how they were supposed to be.

    But yeah, Ninjor should be more creature than human; I don't want a regular ninja, i've got enough of those from the GI Joe line already.
