    Mek still keeps his job. He has superior vision, while Extendar doesn't.

    Not to mention, I personally have no connection to this figure as I do Mek, so to me he's better, and I won't likely be displaying Extendar in his extended mode like I do Mek because I don't much care for it.

    But I do like his non extended look more and more as I keep looking at him, he is a decent figure, I just don't like the extended look.
    I like the knight look better too, especially with the addition of the lance. I just wish the visor wasn't so damn big.

    While I do have some gripes, I am mostly happy with how he turned out.

    Mattel: Now go back to the drawing board with Tallstar and gives her a waist extension!

    I shall digress on the flipping off thing - I prefer 'neck myself too - but this Extendar version is simply awesome. Heck, I might pose them side by side or shaking hands LOL

    Anyone noticed they have changed the boots extending location??
    The gold part is supposed to stay low with the boots!

    I think they got his gloves wrong too... the original had wider cuffs (almost like Classics Hordak) whereas this one has smaller one... it just doesn't look right.

    I like Extendar a lot, although I think his belt beads look a little weird.

    that makes no sense because they (mattel) reversed stinkor's forearms for 'pop' the change the females skirts all the time etc.
    Scott is passing the buck again. (though I will say the horsemen did paint this extendar. - the gloves aren't green they are gold, which i prefer. i never thought it was a 'fault' i always thought it was a design choice

    outside of thaat (which doesn't bug me at all) extendar looks AMAZING! esp extended! fantastic figure, I wonder if the extensions can be combined if you have more than one figure. I hope so.

    not to mention - those are RIO BLAST THIGHS!!!!!!!

    By the time Extendar shows up on the scene, Mekaneck is probably a Snake Man.

    Wow he looks great. I would have preferred his extended parts be curved but he still looks good. I'm glad his extensions are thicker than the old toy too so it looks more practical and natural.

    Not really, the vintage Extendar had those originally.

    Rio's were quite different in that they were actual pieces attached. They also had rivets.

    I like the 'armored' version better as well but I actually love the big grill. It harkens back to his pudgy 80s figure while still being updated. Also makes him more of a fierce tank of a warrior! Sort of a Mekaneck/Ram Man hybrid!

    I definitely do not think he makes Mekaneck obsolete. I always thought of Mek as more of a scout who uses his neck to do his job while it can also be used for combat in a pinch. Extendar's abilities are primarily combat based, giving him reach over his opponents. I would think Extendar rarely uses all of his extensions at once, just the one or two he needs at any given moment, again, in combat. Mek = scout who can fight if needed, Extendar = warrior first and foremost.

    Really loved how he turned out overall. The lance is a killer addition! Here's hoping Rio Blast, Blast Attak and the others come out this well!

    I do not mind the hands (except for coloring) but noticed the legs too.
    Perhaps it was done so that the knee-articulation and the extension feature had a little more space and worked better together??
    Although it looks different to the vintagefigure it is no dealbreaker for me

    I know you are joking, butt I think Mekaneck still has an edge, because his neck is able to extend much further (check the MYP toon for reference).
    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

    The only part I'm slightly unsatisfied with are the hands. One for the coloring (which can probably be easily fixed) and mostly for the size. It just seems like they need to be bigger in relation to the extending parts coming from his forearms. Otherwise he is a simply amazing figure that I've been waiting a long time for!!

    I knew something was off, but couldn't put my finger on it
    And actually it does bug me quite a bit... Not enough to pass on him - he's one of my favourites after all.
    But if it can be changed, it should be.

    That doesn't bother me in the least. If I wanted an exact copy of the vintage Extendar I would just pull out the old one. Some changes are always nice to freshen up the figure. Plus, I think DarthKant hit it on the head. The extending parts would be too close to the knee joint. The old version had no knee joints to worry about.

    The hand color is something that could be changed though. It just looks...odd.

    Yeah, those two things bother me. I'm liking the figure more after seeing the Matty-pictures, but those two gripes (along with glove-color) still bother me.

    I actually like the new place where they have the boots extending. To me it visually makes more sense where the legs extend after the "cuff" piece where on the old figure it looks to be a rather random place right after the knee.

    I don't think Mattel or the Four Horsemen missed the placement, but changed it to accommodate the boot cut and wrist cut articulation. That doesn't bother me at all really.

    As far as the glove color, I would like to see a comparison between the green and gold. Maybe Mattel can make both versions and let people choose which one they want to buy, but that might be asking too much of Digital River. I'm sure this was something the Four Horsemen did on the prototype, but it's probably not too late to change yet.

    BTW, I think he looks awesome! The extended version is a bit clunky and will take some getting used to, but I'm digging his standard look with the shield and lance. Nobody would beat this guy in jousting with his extending arm action

    Don't see how the boot placement would bother anyone.

    The only thing that worries me with Extendar is the crotch piece. On King Hsss it was hard plastic all around, so the top of his legs ran into it and didn't allow the legs to move forward very much. If Extendar has to have the same workings to allow his torso to be removed (if that's how he works; hard to say yet) then I'm afraid his legs won't move forward very much.

    BUT...just a preliminary worry. Looking forward to the details on how he works! And of course, a final product shot, whenever that happens.

    Not vintage correct, but it looks better IMO. It prevents him from from having an amputated limb look
