    SDCC Revealed: Rotar and Twistoid

    But is there a non-leg option?

    Hoping for some more NA figures in MOTUC... at least 12 more!

    They'll be removable, I'm sure.

    THIS. The proportions were absolutely terrible on the vintage figure - his face/head looked 2 times too big for the body. I really hope they fix that crap with the updated version. It really bothered me as a kid! As for Twistoid, the same logic applies, but there's a bit more leeway simply because he's a robot or android. Ideally I'd like to see his proportions fixed too. Honestly, the right way for the 4H to go is with Emiliano's design vision. They'd be perfect.

    Cool - Rotar looks pretty cool...not sold on Twistoid yet, but there again, I was never all that crazy about the vintage version. I'm glad they have legs, though.

    So I guess this means two versions of He-Man and Skeletor coming in the 4th quarter, then.

    Look at it this way - you can probably remove them.

    This is really surprising to me! Does not seem like a logical move. And do they even separate at the waist to become tops? I don't see it explained and I don't see additional pieces for them.

    Sweet! Very excited to get these guys, but curious that they were shown only with legs....I'm assuming they will also be able to have their "altered" states? If not, that would be very odd. Also, the Trap Jaw legs strike again
    Most wanted figures: TUSKADOR!!! Vultak, Dylamug, Quakke, Lizzor, Crita, King Miro, Granita, Sagitar, Despara, Darius, Hawke

    I thought we would get the Energy Zoids with legs as the SDCC exclusive. VERY excited for them.

    Now I just hope the legs are removable (so they can be displayed both ways).

    These will definitely need to grow on me. I just wasn't excited for them before the announcement and I'm still pretty "meh" after seeing them revealed. At least they aren't coming in my subscription.

    This is them from the part of the story line "before" their transformations!

    Twistoid looks absolutely CRAZY with those legs. Pure awesome! And I , too, am so pleased to see Rotar looking like an actual human, in proportion to all other figures. This interpretation (legs for everyone!) is definitely not what I was anticipating, but I will in no way complain! :^)

    Love 'em. I'm hoping they have... not legs. Either way, I'm pretty happy.

    I'm calling it now. The SDCC packing will have legs and the Mattycollector packaging will have rotors, or vice versa.

    I'm sure they will be some backlash regarding them receiving the Classic-ization and giving legs to fit the typical body style of the line, and I'll understand if there's a group of people a little disappointed if the legs don't come off (on purpose lol). However I have to say that I like these interpretations more so than I ever cared for the originals.
