    MOTUC Battle Bones speculation/discussion

    I'm a big fan of Battle Bones, always have been. However I wasn't impressed with the 200x remake.

    With the talk of large beasts being made and the reveal of Battle Cat, I was wondering if Battle Bones was classed as a beast and could be made.

    Same goes for Stridor , Nightstalker, and Mantisaur. They're more steeds than vehicles, surely?

    While it would be cool, I wouldn't expect BB for quite some time. Still, I'd grab one!

    LOL I wasn't expecting it soon, but Mattel apparently said no vehicles... which is why I wondered what Battle Bones and the other guys classed as.

    Hmmm maybe I'll bring that up in the Q&A...

    I loved Battle Bones(unfortunately he came out at the time I was losing interest in the line so I never got him) and always thought of him as a beast. A dead, skinless beast, but a beast none the less. I also thought that Stridor and Night Stalker were robots similar to Roboto; not human but sentient(at least as much as horses would be). Mantisaur came out after I had left the line but I'd definitely classify him as a beast.

    Based on the mini-comics, he was a dead dinosaur brought back to life, so he would be considered a beast. But BB is in a grey area because technically speaking, it really was a carrying case that doubled as a toy, so maybe BB belongs in the same class as the battle stands & accessory pack.

    a new-school battle bones needs a back story with the slime pit monster from 2002

    that could maybe even head down the road of a skeleton warriors tie-in

    I DO love the skeletal creatures...



    Thanks Mangs.

    I loved Battlebones as a kid, but I'm not sure how he'd work in the classics line. I remember him being really long and not much more than a glorified figure case. If Battle Bones was released as a sculpted figure with articulation, I'd be all about it, because I doubt a figure carrier would work well or be necessary in this line.

    But as a large creature? I'd definitely want him. With an opening mouth (which could still hold accessories).

    I'm not sure we'll see Battle Bones in 2011, but I'd like to see a MOTUC Battle Bones, anyway !

    Battle Bones would have to be released as a large creature, that's for sure.

    If it is released, I really want Mattel to allow for a STURDY and CONVENIENT way to attach the figures on Battle Bones ! No more brittle, crappy plastic !

    I'd have to actually WAIT for some critics/previews/reviews before buying a MOTUC Battle Bones.

    We all know there were too many QC issues like this. I'd need a total confirmation that MOTUC Battle Bones is sturdy, well made, awesome and a quality item before buying it !

    Wasn't battle bones re-trademarked by Mattel not too long ago? It would be cool to see him in MOTUC.
    Photog is here! thank you, Mattel!

    Now how about some mini-comics love (like Lodar, Geldor, Dakon......)? And Mermista?

    Battle Bones is a beast more than a vehicle. It is the reanimated skeleton of some kind of beast. No mechanical parts, no wheels, no helix. It is a large (very large) scale beast.

    I want one!!!

    I think that Battle Bones is the only real neutral characters of MOTUC besides Zodac.

    I would agree that BB would be better simply as a beast that doesn't carry figures. Perhaps he is the risen corpse of one of Tytus' techno-dinosaurs as mentioned by another esteemed member in some other thread on some other day... (Forgive me, I've forgotten who postulated the idea, but it was a stellar thought!)

    Battle Bones would be AWESOME. I love skeletons! I also never had 'em when I was little, and I always wanted 'em. I wouldn't mind if they took out the carrying ability and just made him articulated (though, he doesn't need as much as Battle Cat; especially since he would be pretty big). At his size, I think rotoscoping might work well. And hey, they could reuse the top part of the skull for a Slime Pit! That could be made up as a glorified display peice.

    I never liked Battle Bones for some reason. By no means would I not want one made for the people that like him...but I think I'd pass (and I haven't passed on anything.)

    The purpose of Battle Bones was basically a "holder" for your figures...and the way I pose my Classics, I wouldn't want them all "stuck" to Battle Bones.

    If he was redesigned as a different creature, my feelings may change but as a "holder" for the figures...I'd pass.

    I know I'm in the minority on this one.

    I'd personally rather they stick to the original origin and have it die and be resurrected without the techno-stuff (perhaps his species was trying to escape the virus and died out while fleeing). That said, maybe they can incorporate the 200X version as well, possibly as some snap-on cyber parts, where it got infected after being resurrected by a new strain of the virus.

    They made him again in the 200x era, I can only imagine he'll come again, in time.

    I still never got (nor can find for what I consider a fair price) a 200x battle bones.

    I definately want this beast, it's one of the most iconic things of the Vintage era to me, with slime pit, and castle grayskull.
