    It's not like people ran out of time to sub. Most people WAITED til the last hour to do it because they could. People also complained non-stop earlier this year when most of the figures would get delayed and crammed into a single month.

Having a 2 handed trident, but not being able to hold it in two hands? that hurt it for me... I also don't like how his armor 'just sits' on his shoulders... Every time the kids play with him, his armor is always... 'somewhere' because it just doesn't stay on :-/


    For me #1 has to be a toss up between man at arms and Trap Jaw... Trappy is just perfect on every level... and MAA captured just about everything I wanted from him... Right side of his armor would have been nice... but both those heads are AMAZING and really strikes the right nostalgia chord.

    MOST characters (Ram man included) are only going to get ONE display option. Extra heads get tossed in the bin... but MAA?? He's the only one I find myself constantly switching back and forth ^_^
    Mer-Man isn't even close to my favorite Classics figure....not sure which is my favorite, but Rattlor is a top contender for me, as well as Mekaneck, TP He-Man, Frosta (yes I said Frosta, especially after fixing her forearms), Faker, Draego & Stinkor (once I swapped and repainted his forearms)....

    Don't get me wrong I do like Mer-Man, but your dislikes are pretty much the same as mine, and add unfinished paint on his forearms, and no shading on his corn cob sword.

    Yay! It's about time. Look forward to getting my figures on time unlike many this year, but unlike being a former DOS buyer....it would annoy me greatly as a subber to have that happen next year.

    Now if DR would finally get that "my sub" page working....not holding my breath, but my card expires next month....and it was all I had to subscribe with....and I want my friggin Ram-Man.
    Recent....Flutterina, NA Skeletor
    Coming....Rio Blast (sold already)
    Wanted....Entrapa, Light Hope, (A real) Filmation Hordak & Clawful
    Considering....
    Needed....Dragstor

    Oh man, did I forget to use these [sarcasm][/sarcasm] again? Sorry....

    RAM MAN PICTURES ON THE FWOOSH!!!



    FINALLY a figure that ACTUALLY looks better than the 200X version! IMO.

    I LOVE the MYP characterization, the more realistic look and attitude to the characters (no, not they anime faces...but the more realistic feeling of the style of their weapons, armor, and over all looks)...but THIS time I gotta go with the look that they came up with for the Classics over even that. I think this REALLY captured the "heart and soul" of the character, and has a more "realistic" feel to it than even our beloved MYP version. And to boot, it captures the best of the vintage and the 200x while completely having its own unique look!

    An extremely well done figure in my book.

    I just gotta ask....why the heck are his eyes closed? haha.

    I never understood the Ram Man hype.

    Ram Man was one of the very few vintage MOTU items that I never had. I always thought he sucked. I didn't mind him that much in the Filmation cartoon, but the figure sucked. I really didn't care for him in 200x either.

    The MOTUC figure is by far the best but I'm still not crazy for him. I think there's a lot of hype for him since he's an old skool, main character that we waited quite a while for. Not a bad figure at all, but not a character I'm exactly crazy for.

    I seriously, seriously doubt the line about extending the subs causing the delays was anything but a lame excuse for Mattel's usual inability to deliver product. The delays started with Demo Man at the latest, and that had nothing to do with the 2012 sub. They'd played the vendor change card previously, so it was time for a new excuse for the inevitable delays. The world's largest toy maker seems to have extremely limited resources for actually making toys, and I'm certain that The Dark Knight Rises had far more to do with delays than the sub extension.

    I have problems with his dimensions, but I prefer the cross-sell look to the Filamation style.

    The figures shoulder pads don't come out far enough, and they don't slant nearly enough. His arms are too long, and his thighs are too narrow. And his skirt thing needs to be just a bit longer. Unfortunately these issues greatly drop my interest in a figure that was probably in my top 5 all time wants. : / I really hate to say this, but this is the first time I actually dislike the four-horsemen's work. Due in large part to the fact that my hopes were so high, but those dimensions are WAY too glaring for me to ignore them like I can with reversed forearms and the like. Quite disapointed. Hoping that getting him in hand will change my mind.

    I think the 200X version is sculpted the best, but the MOTUC is the best overall figure (which is my attitude toward the majority of the line). While the 200X version is more realistic, the Classics version is the first time Ram Man has had actual poseability. You could pose him running at someone, in a ramming pose, a must for a character like Ram Man.

    I would also want his orange and red colored variant too. Repaint this 100% tooled buck, Mattel!

    Exactly! (Especially the part about Mer-Man!)

    As for Ram Man, I believe he going to be one of the fastest selling figures in MOTUC. This could very well prompt Mattel to offer a card back re-paint version sometime down the road...

    In any case, the figure looks amazing, and I am salivating at the knowledge we will finally have a MOTUC Rammy in such a short time frame!

    Here is another picture from the Fwoosh:

    This shows a pretty good scale comparison...

    Didn't realize his arms were bigger than He-Man's legs, maybe bigger than his own legs. Pretty awesome.

    You aren't alone.

    I think he looks pretty rough. His face is awful, legs too far apart. Overall looks pretty bad IMO, which is sad really as I was looking forward to him. I don't get the love on here.

    Just because it's Classics doesn't mean it automatically has the best sculpt. I think Ram Man's arms are a little too big and long -- out of proportion with everyone else. It's not a huge problem for me though.

    Ram Man needs to look rough, he's Ram Man not Eternia's Top Male Model. It hardly matters as his helmet obscures most of it. His armor is fantastic which to me is the standout feature for him. Legs were never Rammy's strong point, but seeing as this is the first time you can actually bend his knees, it's a huge improvement over the last two.

    Not sure what you always envisioned Ram Man to be, but to say he looks pretty bad is wayyyyy out there. Maybe you were never a fan of Ram Man to begin with? I don't get the hate!
    Your support means more research for the Myostatin-challenged.

    To me he looks great, he is suffering from the early mer-man syndrome, were the peg holes in his elbows interrupt the sculpt of the bracers,
    If I was to nit pic, I would agree with a few of the things that has already been said,
    I would have liked the arms to be a little shorter, and the helmet clip in to the armour, like the look of vintage figure, Eric said 'to him the head not being able to turn didn't work for him,'
    I can see his point, but also the Juggernaut figs I have look and work fine, having a removable helmet that sits in to the armour ,
    Having had a go at making a RamMan figure I can see were there must have been a few challenges.
    The horsemen have done a amazing job, and I for one can not wait to get that fat chunk of plastic in my mitts

    I'm perfectly content with Ram Man's size. I prefer the MYP look and size over the Filmation look but this Ram Man is a satisfying compromise between the two. I don't mind the squinty eyes either. He's a perfect figure in my book and I cannot wait to add him to my shelf!
