    I agree... They should match the colors. It's a not really that great of an idea to pay homage to a known defect.

    It's cool to see Extendar. Looks good potentially. Can't wait to see Dan's review when he gets a review copy. Hopefully Dragstor can't be too far off.

    I can imagine Extendar looking great upon Stridor, especially with that lance.

    Overall, a great looking figure. Some critiques: He has the same problem I had with leech, His upper body isn't beefier than the other figures. That makes his extended forearms being so long look ungainly, as his shoulders are not wide enough to counter balance them. Not only is the different color on the gauntlets off-putting, but the extra detail on the forearm cuffs is strange. Maybe it is a shared part? Otherwise I would have preferred it to be smooth and match the copper color as the original. Does anyone think the lance will extend? All in all another solid vintage translation.

    I think he looks great, I would however want the extension pieces to be rounded. By no means does this kill any excitement I have for him, just a personal preference.

    I think it is hilarious. They obviously used an old Extendar with oxidized gloves as a paint reference. Now, it looks even more "vintage" .
    Hey, if you want to wallow in the negative, go nuts. Sure, things aren’t absolutely perfect, and people passionate about a property can get all keyed up about things. But I don’t collect toys to be miserable. So I’d rather think about the things that do excite me

    I can't believe I am saying this... but I don't like him.

    I think the face grill/visor thing is too wide and chunky. It really effects the aesthetic in a negative way and as it flows right into the body it really looks weird without an ab crunch. Really glad to see him get a figure, and happy for Jon Wes and folks, but yeah. Not really feeling this one

    I don't really care for the extension color. Hoping more for the vintage color.

    You are of course welcome to your opinion, but I disagree re: rounded. The original had that square look also and I feel the MOTUC version should retain the vintage look. At least in that regard.
    Harken the coming of Dragstor!!

    I like him except for toe things:
    1. Gauntlets should be bronze, not greenish.
    2. Gauntlets could bear to be a bit larger, but I doubt this happens.

    Maybe the crotch size will get increased when "adapted" by design. Overall, I am happy with him.

    Was never a huge fan of the original (he always felt like a cheap-o knock-off compared to the others) but he looks pretty snazzy, especially in knight-mode.

    I never had Extendar but I saw some pics in the web and the gloves are different, some of them are green! They were supposed to be bronze originally? Why make such a choice now?

    I'm glad it seems many vintage extender fans are happy with him, but I would have hoped for more of a redesign. He just looks weird to me, even in knight form. I don't like the silly neck/face guard for one. He almost seems like a character from a different line...

    I hope he isn't one of the no DOS figures. I want to buy two of him-- extended and non extended.

    Now you jinxed it! If No DOS for Extendar happens, it's your fault!
    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.

    To me he'd look alright if the extensions were rounded instead of Blockish, looks way off from the more curvy aesthetics of the rest of him. I know the Vintage was that way, but I never had him, but to me that is what makes him not look so good.

    Also on a side note, I never had the Vintage version, I know this for fact....but somehow I ended up with his shield, because I remember clearly it laying in my toy box when I would dig through for parts. Must have been from somewhere, I have no siblings the same age as me for 10 years difference between me and my middle brother, and my nephews never had him either, I know for fact too....so I am puzzled by this.

    I told ToyGuru about the green gloves and he laughed lol. That's the Horsemen. We just have to bring it up at the panel tomorrow. that was all them. Interestingly enough, Mattel will NOT change it until the Horsemen say to change it. That is interesting.

    never had an extendar as a kid, never saw one except at least a decade or more later in a magazine.

    I will be proud to own this. He looks great.

    I'm wondering if his hands pop off since the one on display had his wrist extended at the hand, while the other had the entire glovegauntlet extended from the arm. So like extra extendy or set up display mistake?

    At any rate, yes the Lance is a fantastic idea. Very happy about that.

    He's a win. I always hoped i'd like him. I do.

    Please, please, please mention this in the presentation. This MUST be changed. The green was due to a chemical reaction in the original paint. Just like when copper oxidizes on a penny. Pennies are not meant to be green, nor are Extendar's hands.

    Not trollin' here, but I HATED the vintage toy. I was NOT excited at all for his Classics release.

    But...WOW. I think he looks fantastic.

    Kudos to the 4 Horsemen. They can even make a character like Snout Spout look cool! LOL!

    Getting Extendar for sure!
