    Multiple headed characters: How many will you buy?

    With Mer-Man on the horizon and Man-At-Arms not too far behind, I'd like to get an idea of how many people will buy multiples to display both heads at once. I'm on the fence about this and I think this will help me decide.

    As far as Mer-Man is concerned, one MOC, the other loose with whichever head I feel like displaying him with at the time. Really, REALLY looking forward to Mer-Man.

    I voted for one to keep loose, and cahnge the heads whenever I feel. May use the heads as well when Classics Man-E gets released!

    However, I will probably buy 2 Teelas, as her second head basically gives us another character!

    I buy 2 extra with each extra head. Normally I buy 4: 2 to keep MOC, 1 to display and 1 for the kids.
    Wtih every extra head I need 1 more to display and one more for the kids.

    So for Merman, ManatArms, Stinkor and Mossman (those are the confirmed extra head ones) I will get 6 each.

    Now that i read it again, not officially confirmed, but LIKELY.. which is sorts of a Mattel way to confirm things with a backdoor

    Toy Guru already answered this in a German Q&A:

    Q: When they get released, will Stinkor and Moss Man feature repaints of the Mer-Man cardback head and the Beast Man head, or will they feature new head sculpts?

    A: Likely those characters will get the original toy head repaint and an all new head with a bit of 2002 flair.

    I voted other because i want to have two loose, one with each head for display and I'd buy other 3-4 figures just to have at least one 100% good MOC. I'm both loose and MOC collector and I've seen that to have a good MOC figures You have to buy more of them, if You buy just one this couldn't be mint...if, as TG said, from MAA the figures will come with some protection, then I will just buy 1-1-1...

    Just one to display with whichever head I like better. Don't want more than one of a character on the shelf. I will however be buying an extra Man-At-Arms to make a quick Eternian Guard custom with the alternate head.

    Voted other. For now I will buy one of each figure to keep in box (no matter if a figure have one or more heads), but if money would allow me to spend more, I probably would buy more of each with multiple heads.

    I will buy 2. One MOC and one loose with the "new" head. I would buy 3 if there were two different package versions.

    I will buy 10!!

    other: I will buy 10 of each character with 2 alternate heads! And I'll actually keep most of them or even all of them: 2 for each of my 5 collections...!

    - 2x loose in showcase
    - 2x MOC (if there are alternate versions with either one or the other head applied)
    - 2x loose as room decoration
    - 1x or 2x MOC to keep in case I some time can't spend money on collector's items any more and need something to trade
    - maybe 1x or 2x for decorating other rooms

    Total: minimally 7 needed in case all MOCs are identical or 8 if not. Maximally 10. In any case I'll buy 10 and re-sell what I in the end decide not to keep.

    I am mulling it over, but I keep thinking I will buy two extra Mer Mans to have a pair of fishy warriors for him to boss around. We'll see what the money situation looks like at the time.
    I do not intend to buy more than one MAA, however, or any other character who couldn't be used as more than one entity. (I suppose all of them could, but you get the idea.)

    The mention of MEF brings me to wonder.... Would a pack of extra heads be feasible for him? Then we could pop those heads on him to broaden the range of his awesomeness!
    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

    Just one for MOC. I'm keeping the enitre run in the package, I just think it displays better.

    So far, the only announced character with an extra head who i'll be buying 2 of is Teela. So, for now, i'm going with 1 loose.

    The head issue is not a big deal to me. I think it would silly displaying two of the same character just with different heads each. I will stick with what my buying routine has been thus far with the classics line...I buy 3. I open one, keep one MOC, and another one MOC to sell at a later date.

    I voted two loose, one with each head. The way the line is going, with characters from different times/generations...it's cool to have both displayed...I think so anyway.

    depends on the figure really and it's useability eg only one Ram Man (the unhelmet head will never be used by me) Dekker I use one head on his body the other on a palace guard. Mer-Man though i have 3 one as a leader and his 2 minions. I also have 2 Rattlors one with a long neck the other wears the 200x General armour
    If there's something strange in the neighbourhood, who you gonna' call? HE-MAN!!!!

    I have a duplicate of every figure that came with an alternate head, 4 Man-E-Faces (one displaying each classic face, and one with the alternate head), 4 She-Ras (2 sporting the variant "mask" positions", one with the Filmation head and one BP She-Ra with the Filmation head and cape). I also have a double of Zodac, Mer-Man, and Beast Man wearing the alternate armors and weapons from the Weapons Paks.

    My "alternate versions" shelves are nearly as numerous as my Vintage line shelves, between straight repaints (DC versus He-Man, Skeletor, Mer-Man, Stratos, and Zodac + temple of Darkness Sorceress, Battleground Evil-Lyn and King Grayskull), variants (Battle Armor He-Man, Skeletor and Faker, Thunder Punch He-Man, Dragon Blaster Skeletor and Battleground Teela) and alternate heads (really, too many to list).

    Then there's the "Before they were..." shelf, which features Marlena Glenn and Young Dekker vs Keldor, Kronis, and "young Evil-Lyn", with the unhelmeted head.

    A lot of characters have a lot of representation in my collection!
