    MOTUC Dragstor Speculation/Discussion

    I know we aren't likely to get Dragstor soon, but should Dragstor have a functional wheel on his torso? Should the ab crunch articulation be removed for the functional wheel? Or should the wheel be mounted on some sort of armor? What would you prefer/buy?

    Functional Wheel. Might as well, since it would get in the way of stomach articulation regardless.

    I have the feeling that this is going to be one of the last figures in the line.

    I'd like to see a functional wheel along with a chain weapon that replicates the ripcord the vintage one came with.

    The wheel is the most important thing about Dragstor; without it, what good is he?

    Lose the ab-crunch, and give him a functioning wheel.

    I hope that Mattel keeps making this adult MOTUC line an action feature free series. I think the 4H are definitely doing a great job with this so far; the perfect example is Battle Armor He-Man.

    I agree, but the wheel gets in the way of an ab cruch anyway, regardless of whether it was functional or not.
    It might as well turn. I draw the line at a ripcord though.

    Ab Crunch Could be pulled off on Dragstor. It would be cool if Dragstor could move its upper chest a bit backwards to reduce the ammount of paint wear and tear from Drgostor's umm... drag racing.
    / w \
    \|H|/
    More or less how could it work the H is the wheel and two "tabs" from the lower torso hold it in place while the pegs that would hold the wheel also join upper and lower Torso. Waist swivel would be lost. that way Dragstor could bend back a little bit. Not saying that he NEEDS the ab crunch, just suggesting a way that it COULD be done.

    And release him the month before/after Extendar (two-pack, even?). I loved that mini comic as a kid.

    Hmm, I guess I'm in the minority here...Im really not too concerned if his wheel is functional or not, just as long as it is there and can at least be seen...

    I don't care for Dragstor. There, I said it.

    I will not be heartbroken if he doesn't get made. But I do see him as an example of a figure where the 4H can turn goofy into awesome. Oh, and he should have a functional wheel. At the very least, his arms can come from existing parts using the standard shoulders and biceps with Hordak's forearms and hands.

    I wouldn't mind a Dragstor figure. He is a villain after all and I'm sure the 4H would do a spectacular job on him. I just hope they move that wheel, functional or not, from its present location. That thing is almost on top of his crotch. No wonder he's got squinty eyes in a grimace. I'd be angry too if my special power forced me to have pains in my special area. Man, and forget it if there are any speed bumps in the road.
