    MOTUC Ram Man discussion thread

    Apologies if there has been a thread like this before but I couldn't find one.

    How do you want Ram Man to be made when he is eventually released? With spring legs like the original figure? Or moveable, articulated legs like the mini comic? Should he be short like the original or big and bulky like the mini comic?

    If he's like the mini comic (which I want) won't he be the one figure in the line that is totally different from the original version whose legs were fused together and had a totally different sculpt from all the other figures (as if he really belonged in a different line)?

    Yeah. No action feature getting in the way of his articualtion.

    I think Ram Man should be just like all of the other figures and should have the same articulation. This Ram Man isn't the dwarf from Filmation, nor he be the huge linebacker from 200X. I think he should look like the 8 back. Chances are he'll come in orange and red, with a future bonus figure in red and green.

    No, he won't have any spring action feature so he'll have two separate articulated legs as well as articulated arms. Like MGM said, he'll look like he did on the vintage cardback in the MOTUC style, of course.

    I'm glad that he wont have an action feature. Ram Man was one of the few toys I had from the original line, and even as a kid it bothered me that his legs were stuck together. I'd like for him to be bulky looking for sure, but I think it would be good if he had more human-like proportions. Not the little stubby legs he used to have. I also think the red/green color scheme is more likely than the orange, as it is more iconic. A posable head like in 200x would be nice too.

    I definitely don't want the spring-loaded legs on him, but I remember when I was a kid I couldn't get enough of his action feature. I would endlessly push his legs in and slam his head into the bellies and chests of the villains. It's funny how when I see toys today I wonder how in the world kids could prefer the loss of articulation for some gimmick, but then I remember what a blast I had filling Kobra Khan with water and spraying acid venom (tap water) on the good guys. Don't even get me started on Thunderpunch He-man :P

    Ram Man have to have an unique sculpture. His body is very diferent than Hemanīs one. Is like comparing Juggernaut with Wolverine. And please, with action feature. You only have to add a little spring...

    With the way the line is going I doubt we will see anyone that is a 100% unique sculpt in the foreseeable future. With Ram Man, I'd be happy with a retool of the 200x figure for MOTU Classics.

    Toyguru/Mattel stated that since the line is doing so well that we will see more unique sculpts. I want the eight-back Ram-Man, and think most people would be happy with that. I AM DYING FOR THIS GUY! I could care less whether or not he has spring action.

    However Mattel decides to sculpt him, I am very excited and can't wait for a Ram Man. He was one of my favorites characters.
    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.

    I like his 200x look, but not necessarily his size (bigger than everyone--in the cartoon his arms looked bigger than Teela!).

    They CANNOT kill this line before making Ram-Man, Man-E, Sorceress, and Evil-Lynn. They are classic, "A" characters.

    I agree, especially with making the Sorceress!!!!

    Did I read somewhere that Ram Man (like Battle Cat and Beast Man's whip) came from a different line originally and was just shoe-horned into the line as a new character? He looks extremely different from the other 80s MOTU figures.

    Makes sense- and there's already a case of this happening in MOTU with Zoar (I believe she was from Big Jim's P.A.C.K.- a 70's toyline)... does anyone know?

    Ram Man needs to have both legs poseable. He needs to have more POA than Todd Macfarlane toys.
    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.

    Ram Man HAS to get made. He was my first MOTU figure way back in 1984, and has always had a very special place in my heart.

    Get rid of the spring action, give him the articulation he deserves, and deliver him to my door!

    I just want him to have dual axes. Like when he was sparring with Buzz-Off in the MYP cartoon.

    Ram-Man is slotted in before 2016 in MOTUC, etc.! hehe

    Have you guys been reading the Matty responses on Facebook?

    Wes Walker It's really gonna suck if we have to wait till 2016 to get Ram-Man

    Mattycollector.com
    Who in the world said Ram Man won't be out until 2016? I can confirm he is slotted in before 2016.
    Jay Robinson If MOTUC is ending in 2116,what fig do u think they will end the line with? Not including re-releases.

    Mattycollector.com

    Who says it is ending? That's just as far as we have planned right now. (although even this plan is just our own wishlist, no guarantee right now, we just like to be prepared!)

    Well Barbie has went on for like 70 years, I imagine MOTU could go on for 10-20 even if they just scaled back to one figure every three months. Even with a new cartoon or movie its not like they would have to kill the MOTUC line if it was still selling enough to make a profit

    50, but close.

    Ram Man before 2016 I can deal with. I'd prefer Ram Man before 2011, tho.

    TG has already stated he won't be coming in 2010. Most likely it will be in 2011.

    Dang! MOTUC until 2116?! I didn't know Masters had enough characters to last an entire century.

    Even if Ram-Man happens before 2016 it better be before 2012 since that's when the world is going to end. I mean if you believe Hollywood and an ancient civilization's calendar. And when have those two things ever steered us wrong?

    I wanna be holding my MOTUC Ram-Man figure in my hand as the mega tidal wave crushes my body and eveything around me. Nah, I'm just kidding. If anything, I'm going to meet my final doom dressed in my Stormtrooper outfit. Imperial rule till the end, baby!
