    MANTISAUR in MOTUC

    He-Man, Skeletor and She-ra have their own mount beast. Its time for Mantisaur for Hordak!

    IMPROVEMENTS in MOTUC
    Mantisaur have a Gun Machine in the back, but the figure can,t reach to it. Maybe a good improvement can be a rotating saddle or just design the saddle in a way it can work in both positions (Hordak looking to the front, Hordak looking to the back).

    I never had Mantisaur but would love to see him/it in MOTUC!

    What IS Mantisaur, anyway? Giant insect? Robot insect? Giant insect infected with TO virus?

    I would love him. Don't have high hopes though. Not sure if they could get multiple use out of the sculpt.

    I believe we're retreading another thread here, gang...look for this to get merged if I'm right. In any event, I think we could see Mantisaur eventually.

    Interesting bit on that packaging; I didn't know that Mantisaur could call up swarms of insects!
    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

    I'd love to have him, always wanted the original. I like him being some insect creature Hordak experimented on.

    I'm pretty sure he'd fall into the 'vehicle' slot... and other then the cats and horses... they're pretty much ALL going to be unique sculpts... and he is a fun looking thing...

    I hope they make him.

    Sure, I would buy one. Not a huge fan of Mantisaur, it's just not as iconic looking to me as Battle Cat, Panthor & Swift Wind. BTW, did King Hiss ever have a mount? Or was there a prototype of one for him in the POG line?

    Tyrantisaurus Rex belonged to Hiss.

    A Tyrantisaurus Rex in Jurassic Park style (movie not toys) would be insane

    I'd love a Classics version of Mantisaur! The only thing is…I'll need a Hurricane Hordak to go on his back!
    200X fan? Classic fan? What does that mean? I'm a MotU fan!!!

    I recently got the vintage Mantisaur and I would totally love a MOTUC one. I really like the design and color scheme on it.

    I definitely associate Mantisaur with the horde and Hordak (even though the only bugs I had were Sectaurs) so would love to see a 4H version.

    Cool custom He-Bro.
    All caught up on figures...now what

    I would love to have a Mantisaur with posable legs and pincers. Maybe some parts of his limbs can be used for Monstroid and Spydor.

    I agree that Hurricane Hordak belongs on Mantisaur, like BA He-man on BC and Fisto on Stridor.

    I always wanted Mantisaur as a kid and never got him. He's not the highest on my MOTUC list buy I'd definitely get him if he came out, he'd need a lot of improvements but I'm sure the 4HM could do wonders with him.

    Isn't Stridor pretty much a done deal now that Swifty's been done? Seems more like a when rather than whether issue

    I'd like Mantisaur to be released in 2012. I'd buy it in a heartbeat !

    Same goes for Tyrantisaurus Rex, Bionatops, Turbodactyl and Gigantisaur.

    He did in the episode "A Talent for Trouble" but he looked nothing like the toy and I really wouldn't want a toy of the Filmation version:
