    What about this version of Beastman?

    Would anybody like to see this early version of Beastman in the Classics line at some point?

    I kind of like it.

    I'd like a red Beastman further down the road as a repaint.

    The earlierer version of Beastman didnt last long for a good reason.
    The actual classic version seems perfect to me.

    If he had a new sculpt to represent that look I`d buy it, as for a straight red repaint, No Thanks! I think it would look kinda silly

    Wow! Those both look really great! Surprisingly, that Beastman does look really cool with the red paint job!

    I like it too. I especially like that Skeletor custom. Something about that face...

    So im really confuesd, I always thought this was Red Beast, the bear looking guy

    not him

    but then we have this guy as well

    and this appears to be a Red Gygor

    Which one is it? And who are the other ones?

    These are a bunch of various concepts. Without a video camera in the Mattel offices from 1979-1981, it's probably not an answer we're ever going to get. But in hinsdsight, this is what we're looking at:

    1) Red Beast - the bear-like concept art that was one of 3 designs that Mark Taylor brought to the table when He-Man was being created.

    2) Red Beastman - The Minicomics interpretation of Beast Man, based off the same art as the toys, but differing in color and detail because the toy sculpting of the era toned down and lost much of the style of the design art.

    3) Red Beast sketch - probably an intermediary step between the Mark Taylor sketch and the final Beast Man design, possibly one that intended to use the Big Jim Gorilla toy as a base. Notice Beast Man's medallion "burst" is the same design as the belt on this character.

    4) A concept sketch of a He-Man vehicle/beast - probably has no connection to Gy-Gor other than Mattel designers intended to use the Big Jim Gorilla mold for it. It seems like Mattel tried a number of times to utilize that existing tooling in the vintage line, but it never came to production.

    Beast Man is now the only 8-back character to not have a variant, either from matty or TRU.

    I really hope they make him. Alcala Skeletor needs his red Beast Man.

    Very nice customs. I like the orange Beast Man better. It suits his primitive nature. He looks too much like a devil all red.

    That's pretty cool, but if they were to make the red Beastman, I would like a hairier, more savage looking face and new knee-to-ankle parts. If you look at the picture on the back of the mini-comic, he has very hairy legs. It looks like he's wearing "fur bellbottoms."

    I wouldn't object to this version. It was the first version of Beastman I ever saw anyway
    It's all about being polished when it counts!

    Man those customs look feaking cool! I'd buy them if they made them.
