    MotUC Missile Launcher Optikk Speculation

    OK, we know that Optikk is the May 2010 figure. We also know that he's based on the original toy, but will feature two eyeballs, one based on the old art, the other based on the old toy.

    However, in the episode 'The Games' near the end of the NA series, Optikk received a weapons upgrade from the Blacksmith of Crelus. He was given new armour and a deadly missile launcher. Do you think we will get this as a figure? Does Mattel even have the rights for this? Will you buy such a figure? Or will the NA haters start screaming that this will be "killin teh lien"?

    You know, I read Novelty's post like Three or Four times, and I didn't see a mention of action features anywhere.
    But yeah, the missile launcher would be great to have. As for the other amour, I just thank God for the Optikk we're getting. A whole lot of the NA haters are already bleeding from the ears because of it, let alone variants.
    Love, friendship, or respect, do not unite people as much as a common hatred for something.

    Wouldn't a launching missile constitute an action feature?

    It wouldn't have to actually launch, but yes, the little missile-headset thing would make a neat little pack-in for the extra head. But I'm just happy we're getting an Optikk at all!

    What Thatman said. I wonder if they could do it in time for this release of Optikk. Then we don't need a variant down the road.

    Not if it was designed like Prince Adam's weapon from 200X. And by weapon, I mean the mace he came with, which I actually separate into a mace and a telescope (for when Mekaneck isn't around).

    Or it doesn't have to do anything, it could just be sculpted to look like it could. Still, he looks just fine without it.

    Except for glow in the dark plastic, and color change, and smell, and spring action claws.

    More new figures are needed before we get C-list varients. Don't get me wrong... I loved the Optik figure. But I'd rather see many others before this one.
    We don't need no education...

    Yes you do, you've just used a double negative!

    I think we need more interesting characters and original NA characters first. NA variants ? Suuure... after 2019.

    Yeah I don't think a variant is necessary, I just wish that more research was done to uncover this weapon and it was somehow adapted to his character rather then creating a brand new weapon (his shield) for him. If they didn't have the rights to it, then it puts a kibosh on it, but what they could have done was give him a missile launcher as well as his photon neutralizer, instead of it being part of his armor, creating a new weapon out of the missile launcher rather then the shield. I hate variants all together and would rather use those spots in the calendar for new characters, but I know there are others out there that feel the opposite of what I do. I don't think it it necessary to create any variants for the NA line, for guys like flogg, hoove, hydron, and flipshot include all the accessories with the first release of them just like they did for catra. That way their 2 accessories are already known, and you dont have to worry about making the variants, For Skelator and heman, I dont feel they are very different,skelator more then heman, but again include all the accessories that came with the variants in one package and you are set.
