    Read above..... stratos was never a villan. that picture is misleading, I had the same confusion too, until I actually read the comic.
    They're actually refering to Man-at-Arms on the tower behind the gun on Castle Grayskull.....

    A possible name for the character could be "Nikko: Evil avatar of Skeletor." Nikko was the name given to the leader of the flying monkeys in the credits of The Wizard of Oz movie. The name Nikko comes from the Japanese city of the same name (Nikkō), where the famous Three Wise Monkeys shrine ("See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil") is located. In the western world the phrase is often used to refer to those who deal with impropriety by looking the other way, refusing to acknowledge it, or feigning ignorance. Those traits could possibly be worked into the character.
    I definitely would buy this version, and Captain Atkins is right...he's more of a beige or tan color than flesh color. He's got enough variations from regular Stratos (belt, collar, feet) to make him look like a unique and different character. Heck, if we're getting a DC Comics version of He-man, why not? Bring on evil Stratos!

    I have to agree that I always thought that "caucasian" was a poor choice of label for this version. Beige, tan...even orange in some panels works better.
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    He could be cool as a separate character.

    Hey. I made a Miniternia Stratos already. I sold him already, but I could make another.

    What are the chances of Mattel finally kicking those dumb sock feet to the curb and putting some Beastman feet on this variant Stratos IF it's ever released?

    That's what I want know.

    I'll only buy a new Stratos by the time they give him hands that can hold weapons...

    I still want this figure. The color scheme is so cool with the blue red and yellow. I'm even liking the idea of him being Avatar, or the guy that rules Avion after Stratos dies.

    I like this version. And since it has low new tooling parts it could came with an extra head. May be a Snout Spout no-foam-trunk head

    I want Roostor as well. It would be cool if they made his skin tan and his hair a slightly darker brown.

    I'd probably switch his head and make him an entirely different evil character though.

    I want this version too. Very cool. Would be quite a nod to the original minis.
