    Good call on passing the staff on to Shashimi. I totally missed the skull on it before, and it perfectly fits her! Other than the skull, it's a dead ringer for the Staff of Avion, but oh well. Not like Stratos can hold it anyway. I'm over the top excited to be getting this Filmation sub along with Filmation artifacts and weapons. I really hope this is only the beginning.

    What is this base for the staff of avion that some people keep mentioning, if its the one in the reveal photo is it just me or is that not clearly just a piece of plasticine or putty? Am I missing something else?

    It could well be a rock I could easily be wrong, I just automatically assumed it was plasticine when I first saw it. I was just checking there wasn't a base in the cartoon episode I might have missed.

    No, I don't believe there was a base in the episode....I guess we figured since the figure it was aimed at couldn't hold it....it was going to be for that reason....it may very well have been putty....since I just rechecked, and I don't see it in any of the NYTF pics....

    I believe that was just putty for display purposes and wasn't meant to be a base.

    Well I just watched the episode with Icer on netflix. I can see now why people end up loving these one-off characters so much: They DO things! It's a wonder anyone ever became fans of the regular villains considering how much they screw up. Trap-Jaw was one of my favorite toys and he's one of the best MotUC figures, but he's completely useless in all the episodes I watched (decided to catch all the ones coming out in the sub soon - Shokoti and Batros' episodes as well).

    Anyway, when they bring in a new villain they always get to actually be dangerous. Icer himself spent a good chunk of the episode sneaking around and freezing the heros when they weren't looking. Heck, I'm not sure how they would have beaten him without the heat taking him out (well that's a lie, I know how they would have beaten him: He-Man woulda thrown a rock at him along with a terrible quip like "You must be ice water 'cause you're ON THE ROCKS *HUUWAAHH*"). So yeah, Icer was pretty boss. Loved the voice too! Out of all the wacky junk I've seen recently in the original series I think Icer is one of the top guys that should have had a toy. What was with that? It's crazy how they made that show to sell toys, but then they either don't make them or the designs don't even match the toy at all (like the Attack Track - what was up with that thing?)

    It's a shame Icer didn't make a return appearance; he was a good villain. And I am surprised he never made it to figure form, for, as his MOTUC figure shows, he didn't need much in the line of new parts. A translucent ice guy surely would have appealed to kids.

    Oh yeah, he would have certainly been a favorite back when I was a kid! Not sure what his action feature would have been...maybe another water-squirter?

    I think it would have been awesome if he changed his color from white-translucent to blue-translucent, if he was put in cold water. Was that possible at that time?

    You'd think so! I can't vouch for what toy technology they had at the time, but I thought color changing stuff was as old as most of us here, at least. That makes sense, actually! They could have passed it off as sort-of changing from ice to water, in a way.

    This guy looks amazing. I am so glad I purchased this Filmation Sub.

    I usually don't pick on the bios, but why do that have to make every character so overpowered? Control weather, time travel, destroying Whiplash with a camera head...sigh.

    To me he is just a bada$$ dude who lives way up north in some ice cave.

    And he's awesome!

    Well I can't vouch for all of them, but the bios didn't make Icer powerful! If you watch the episode with him in it, nobody could touch him until He-Man smacked some heat thingy and made Icer run off 'cause of the increased temp. Technically they never really beat him, even though the guy never comes back.

    I just watched the Icer episode over the weekend. Icer is really a sweet character. This figure looks great. And the icicle weapon is great for anyone you want to have fighting him, since that's all they could use.
    I'm pretty sure that they had color changing plastics back then, even if they didn't they could have filled him with jell that could have frozen when he was put in the freezer, which would have changed his look and been a unique feature for MOTU.
    Anyway, super excited for this figure now! Such a great month for MOTUC!

    That's kind of a holdover from 2002. The one thing that got old very fast was that every previous era foe the Masters faced in the series was automatically made way more physically/magically powerful. The amping up actually made many of them far more generic, especially in the cases of Marzo and Evilseed, who were far less physical foes in the old series, and actually more interesting because of that. It overemphasizes the physical powers and somewhat ignores the danger of a foe who's most formidable weapon is his/her brain (think Batros).

    I preferred the less saturated look of the leaked prototype shots. He seems a bit opaque now.

    Still a very cool figure nonetheless.
