    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...

    I am thinking about picking up Battle Bones on ebay. I was wondering will it hold the MOTUC figs?

    Also, will vehicles such as Wind Raider and Battle Ram work with MOTUC?

    Uhmmm, regarding Battle Bones, if you force the ribs you could fit some figures in, I believe, but I dare not try it: after so many years those things are so frail!
    They can sit on the Battle Ram, but it looks a little small IMO.

    I believe people have used MOTUC figures with the 200X Battle Bones - there was a thread about it awhile back...

    you can fit them by forcing them in, which will eventually break

    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.

    A Battle Bones done in the manner of the vintage box art would be cool. I don't think it needs to be made into a carrying case, but I trust the Four Horsemen to do something special engineering wise.

    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.
