    Panthor: To flock? Or not to flock?

    That is the question!

    I've been vocal about not being a fan of flocking. But I recognize many are, and that's cool.

    In my opinion, flocking works on Moss Man, he's mossy, flocking looks mossy.
    But for Panthor, the sculpt is already a nice fur texture, and thus doesn't need a redundant coat of flock on top of it. But that's me. What do you want?

    Toyguru asked at SDCC who wants Panthor flocked? I was there, and one of the few that voted for no flocking, but I wasn't alone.

    So here's the poll, cast your vote!
    I expect flocking to be popular because I'm convinced nostalgia is a drug to the brain as powerful as substances that aren't necessarily legal in most countries.

    But for Panthor, do we really need it?

    I don't mind sayin', my vote was the thrid option, let Matty release two versions of him! More money to be made, and everyone is happy.

    I too, think the third option is the way to go...give everyone a choice, and die hard completeists will probably end up buying one of each. I do think they could probably make more flocked than unflocked though. Honestly, I think he would look cool either way. I'd probably buy both.

    It's a win-win for Mattel and the fans.

    I know it's early, but I'm surprised flocking isn't taking a bigger lead!

    Flock that kitty!
    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

    For this to be the "Classics" line Panthor MUST BE FLOCKED!!!!
    In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan,
    Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone;
    Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow,
    In the bleak midwinter, long ago...
    ...a stable place sufficed.

    What can I give Him, poor as I am?
    If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb;
    If I were a Wise Man, I would do my part;
    Yet what can I give Him?....[I can] give my heart.

    The original Panthor and 200x Panthor were probably easy to flock, but after the things happening with Moss-Man I can't see him being flocked.

    I haven't read up on Moss Man. What problems are they having? How can a toy company in the 80's flock their figures yet in a day of age of being able to fly to work with my rocket pack we can't figure out how to flock figures any more?

    not flocked. I'm all for Mossman's flocking, but not on the cat... I don't know it makes him seem too fuzzy-wuzzy-wovabble kitty cat... not the fearsome ride of Skeletor.
    FINALLY!! GLIMMER IS IN MY SHELF!! Now I need a Crita!! Crita is to Mara what Evil Lyn is to Teela. If we ARE getting Mara, then we NEED Crita.

    I'm no for flocking. It'd pretty much make him a statue, no? We don't need that in this line.

    I know it loses to nostalgia, but I gotta go with the no-flocking option. I'd say flock 'em if it was a smooth mold like the original, but Battle Cat's fur detail looks awesome, and I'm really looking forward to seeing it on Panthor.

    Panthor has to be flocked. That's his main feature. What is Panthor without the flock huh? It's like Grizzlor without the fur.

    Given the current Moss-Man fiasco, I'm voting no. Besides, I'm thinking it was kinda dumb to flock Panthor anyway, when they didn't flock battle cat. Last I checked, Tiger fur (green or otherwise) feels pretty much the same as panther fur.
