    The Official 1988 Xbow man Thread

    I give him this name only cause thats how Errol descibed him in his filenames. A great Powercon or chase figure. Fisto head, rioblast hands, he-ro armor, squeeze loin leg armor and boots.

    People wanna say some of New Adventures, Filmation, and 200X had bad designs but everyone thinks these unoriginal hodgepodge messes are so great I just don't understand it.

    What do you think of Stinkor and MossMan, they're essentially the same thing.

    Yea as well as almost 85% of the vintage line that had the same bodies etc...I think they are cool...you have to have an open mind to see the cool things...I'd rather have these in my mythos instead of The Mighty Spector.....

    I think what's cool about them is they are what would have been if another wave had made it to retail. As someone who remembers the excitement of finding new, unknown figures at a store, I am excited about these because I can imagine myself finding as a child and what I would think of them then...good or bad.

    While not my favorite of these designs, I'd be happy to get him. Maybe he's a later Cosmic Warrior, one who does not get to wield the a Sword of He because of the Trollans deal with Eternia. Forced to rely on technology, he adopts new weaponry, even including pilfered Horde crossbows and flip-out blasters.

    I'd have to see a colour scheme that really pulls it together. As it stands he is my least favourite (not counting the white ninja who is too booring to even ackowledge)

    The idea is cool but I hate the idea of reusing heads. "Classicize" this character by giving it an all new head and new x-bow.

    Or

    Make him a Darius variant. King Darius?

    Would be an OK addition to the Preternian Evil Horde ... as long as the head was a different sculpt in some way from Fisto.
    Grayskull needs its Cardboard Spacesuit MOTUCized

    I would use the 200x fisto head on this guy when I customize him

    I think it's crazy that they were planning on reusing the He-Ro chest piece in the same dang wave.

    I think this dude has potential though. Love to see gbagok take him on.
