    Official MotUC Ninjor 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.

    "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.

    Sculpt it. I think it'll look better. Figures rarely use cloth anymore. And besides, we can get an alternate unmasked head.

    Well who's to say that Ninjor is a creature type guy? I mean, he's a ninja! Couldn't he be weaing gloves with sharp fins on it and claws? And the boots...wouldn't those be boots with clawed toes on them so he could scale walls (combined with his clawed hands, perhaps he could).

    I say, leave it the same! Your imagination can make him a monster or just a ninja wearing some ninja gear for fighting and climbing.

    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

    Ninjor isn't one of my favorite characters. Making him more human would enforce my lack of caring.
    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.

    Skeletor body style for me, that's all that makes him unique in the deluge of Ninja's we got in the 80's. It's those parts that make him 100% MOTU!!

    I don't like being negative on this forum, but I am not a big fan of Ninjor either ...

    Pixel Dan - I know this is avoiding your original question, but just thought I'd give my opinions here anyway ...

    Ninjor, to me, is just a generic Ninja - I feel the same about Jitsu, despite his rivalry/relationship with Fisto ...

    Both Ninjor and Jitsu just didn't really do it for me, and they seem too similar - especially when you reveal Ninjor's face from underneath his cloth mask ...

    I don't own either of the classic figures and, even though I did as a kid, Ninjor (and Jitsu) don't seem to stick out as being ''cool'' to me when I think of MOTU ... to echo other peoples comments, Ninjor is a bit 'normal' and I suspect he was produced to fill a gap of sorts in the line or to fill a current trend that was being set in the 80's ...

    Pixel Dan - to answer your original question, I would like to see a more 'human' Ninjor if he is released (i.e. not using Skeletors body with clawed feet and arms fins) because to me, he is essentially just a 'human' character in the MOTU world ...

    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.
