    I had Extendar as a kid (well, it was my brother's), so I do have the vintage nostalgia happening, but the knee thing doesn't bother me at all. I can see how some people might be bothered, simply because it is a change, but I kind of think it looks better? I love how he turned out and I can't wait. Finally, after all these years, I get MY OWN Extendar and I don't have to ask for permission to play with it!

If the line was sold as each figure was budgeted out and they sold them all individually and wanted to make a unique tool for each, they would need to sell more of each at a much higher price per unit. And that just wouldn't work, this line is based off of a lot of parts reuse to help with costs and fit everything into the yearly budget.
    I dunno about that. Tallstar was used as the poster figure for the anti-dumpy-crotch campaign. The Star Sisters in general are frequently referenced in "missed opportunities" type of threads, where many folks complain about such things as lack of accessories, Jewelstar's inability to transform or lack of representation for the action feature, the incorrect placement of Tallstar's legs on the hip piece, Starla's missing back pack, loose joints on Tallstar, colors used, etc., making them perfect candidates for 2.0 releases.

    So far as action features and unique tooling are concerned, Mattel told us Tallstar and Jewelstar would be treated like the male figures in the line.

    I think I'm the only guy who was never bothered by Tallstar's crotch area. While Mattel missed out on making her waist extendable the long crotch area kinda makes up for it. So it suits her imo.

    I bought extendar at Canada's Wonderland, a Theme Park just north of Toronto, they had the Power Tour and I took a picture with Skeletor and Hordak, they gave away the Eternia poster there at the show, the first time I ever saw clamp champ was on that poster. and the toy store had brand new MOTU stuff, Extendar, Rio Blast, Stilt Stalkers, Jet Sled, Tower Tools Scubattak etc. just SEEING this extendar brings me back to that day, makes me feel great.

    He does look fantastic, Extendar has become one of my favourite characters in the last few years, so I've been anticipating his MOTUC figure for ages. The boots splitting apart doesn't both me much and I'm glad he doesn't look fat like Sea-Hawk.

    I remeber getting Extendar at KayBee many years ago and opening him in the car. None of my friends believed he was a Masters character because he looked so different. He is one of my favs, so I'll have to get a 2nd one somewhere to display extended. One coming via sub.

    No one should ever have to ask permission to play with their Extendar....I think that's the law or something

    Thank you for posting the photos. Extendar may not be perfect but he is still an incredible looking figure. I can't wait until he arrives!

    Man, between this and the poor showing of Filmation Hordak, I'm so disappointed.

    The belt is inexcusable. It's so awkward, out-of-place.

    And where is the peace sign on the back of his neck? I really hope that piece is just rotated

    Oh man! I think he looks amazing! The gold band, while a bit annoying, is not a deal breaker for me. I do wish they'd just made his belt bigger or something. But he looks so nice otherwise.

    The gold band is a bit thick, yes. They could have widen the red part instead but well itīs to late and itīs not a big issue if you ask me.

    I think itīs amazing how tall he gets!

    He is almost perfect and i really like him!

    The gold they used is really nice.

    I actually really like him without his armor on, I'd love to see him extended that way.

    Also, it looks like they gave us the pearlescent coloring!

    He looks better than on the pics that leaked a few days ago. I think all in all he is a very good figure.
    I still think the forearms look somewhat off.
    Awesome sticker included!

    He looks amazing! Love how they managed to use the standard torso on him, and update the vintage armor so flawlessly! The next few months of MOTUC = WIN!

    I don't see the issue with the belt. Is it just different than the vintage toy or what?
    I had this vintage figure but he was not one of my favorites, as a child.
    I do like this version a lot.

    It's different...but it doesn't bother me. Just seems like an odd decision. I think he looks AMAZING. Cannot wait to have MY OWN Extendar (see post above, lol).

    He's perfect. And honestly, I don't understand all this drama with gold belt.
