    SDCC Moss Man vs Finalized Moss Man

    "What is best in life?"

    SDCC Moss Man: "The open steppe, fleet horse, falcons at your wrist, and the wind in your hair."



    Finalized Moss Man: "To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of their women!"

    WORD! Sorry....I am too quick on that it seems.

    I chose SDCC MossMan....even though I really don't care. It does look better though.

    I voted for SDCC, but I want to explain why. First off, I love both versions and applaud Mattel for listening to the fans and flocking him as much as possible without limiting articulation. They worked really hard on that.

    SDCC: the colours and flocking was perfect. I much prefer all these colours to the final version. Brighter colours for MossMan is important. It shows life, vitality...in a word nature.

    Final Version: I DO really like his flocking and his longer loincloth. The colours, however, are way too dull/dark though. Dark green is swampy, dead leaves, etc. Even his vine sash, weapon and all the browns and yellows are too dark.

    Maybe Mattel can re-issue the SDCC one later on with the lighter colours, more MYP-ish. They basically are 80's figure (the final version) vs. 200X look (the SDCC one).

    By the way, I wonder if they glued him so his ab-crunch doesn't move...

    Final Version.... they almost got it.
    Layout of Partial Flock - Impressive
    Longer Furry Shorts - Dig it! Looks more like Tree Bark.
    Darker Colors - Welcome change, there is no neon found in nature.
    Overall this figure would be awesome except....
    Covering the Ears - Flocking Wha?!?!
    Flocking Material used - A Flocking Travesty.

    I voted SDCC version for only 2 reasons.
    Uncover the Ears and use the same stuff that was on the Proto we saw @ SDCC and Matty my boy, you've got yourself a winner.

    The SDCC version looked like he was covered in model railroad grass...the final version is perfect, and really looks just like real moss.

    SDCC version for me. The final version looks like winter weather warrior Moss Man. You know he grows more moss on his body before heading to the ice mountains.

    Four Horsemen prototypes always win out, but I like Mattel's longer loincloth decision.

    sdcc all around, this new one bugs me. i don't mind the color change had they kept everything else like that one. longer loincloth sucks.
    MANGLORD'S most wanted MOTUC, GWILDOR and the rest of the 87ers.

    I like them both.

    - The SDCC Moss Man is really great and looks like a 200X Moss Man.
    - The Finalized Moss Man is great also and looks like a 80's Moss Man (So much more as a Classic figure)

    I hope Mattel will release the SDCC Moss Man as a 200X version of Moss Man in the future.

    So in fact, I think an other interesting pool would be :
    Who would buy a SDCC Moss Man after the release of the Finalized Moss Man?
    - I would for sure!

    I like the longer loincloth too…works really well on Mossy!

    And I voted final version. These figures ALWAYS look better in person! Plus, there's nothing wrong with Moss Man ACTUALLY having moss on him…
    200X fan? Classic fan? What does that mean? I'm a MotU fan!!!

    The only things I preferred on the SDCC Moss Man werde the brighter colors and the free ears. Aside of that, I prefer the final versions' flock.

    I don't like the final version that much...I prefer more vivid colours and less fur on it.
    I would buy it anyway as I think it is a great character, but the SDCC gave me more excitement on this figure.

    I love the SDCC figure way better EXCEPT for the loincloth. Keep the newer loincloth and we'd have a perfect figure.

    I agree. the longer loincloth fits mossman much better and sets him apart from Beastman (although I think BM would have looked better with the longer loincloth too).
    I like to be able to see the detail in a figure that's advertised as 'highly detailed', but unfortunately all mossman's detail is completly lost with all that flocking. To me, they over did it.
    I like my warriors looking like warriors, not cuddly teddy bears. i am glad they didn't take away any of the joints though, but they just went overboard with the flocking. it's too thick imo...
    keeping it thin like the SDCC version would have given him a mossy texture without overpowering the detail of the sculpt. Now he looks like Stephen King's character from Creepshow.

    I'm sure he'll look better to me when I have him in hand, just like Scareglow & Randor did.

    EDIT: looking at it again... the only thing about the final version that bothers me is his ears are covered up by the flocking, which I hope can be scraped off easily. Otherwise the final version doesn't look too bad, imo.

    I'm not that bothered by the differences between the two except that they covered his ears ... why would they do that?

    It doesn't look better ... it looks lazy (in my opinion); it's not like they're preserving articulation there. It's almost like they misunderstood when fans said they wanted as much flocking as possible ... "well, we can cover up the ears, that will give them more flocking ..."

    The loincloth doesn't really make that much difference to me long or short - I can see the appeal of the longer one though as a differentiation from Beast Man.

    In the end, I voted for SDCC even though it seems clear the "final" one is the one we'll be getting.
