    MotUC Lord Dactys figure discussion

    We are almost complete with the core Royal Family. All we need now is Marlena and that would be complete. The next subgroup I'm looking forward to is the Eternian Council.

    Well, I would like to get the Eternian council sooner rather than later, so let me start with Lord Dactys - would you want him to be included in MotUC, would you buy him, and if yes to both questions, when do you want him to be released? 2011? 2016? Somewhere in between?

    Got Fur

    I want a Glimmer by the end of 2012 and Extendar by 2013!
    Other Wants:
    MotU: Rokkon, Stonedar, Dragstor, Modulok, Multi-bot, Horde Trooper, DB Skeletor
    PoP: Peekablue, Madam Razz, Lighthope, Kowl
    NA: Quakke, Sagitarr
    MYP: Hawk, Queen Andreenos, Lord Dactys
    Mini-Comics: Kex Queen, Tug-of-War Yellow Warrior, King Hiss' Slave Girl

    I would love a figure of Dactys, but I think he is a lot less likely than Carnivus or Evil Seed from the 200x cartoon as he would require a lot of new tooling. HOpefully, I am wrong.
    Photog is here! thank you, Mattel!

    Now how about some mini-comics love (like Lodar, Geldor, Dakon......)? And Mermista?

    I'm looking forward to Lord Dactys more than any other 200X character. I hope to see him sooner rather than later.

    I think it is a good Idea I have a feeling we will see more 200x Next year.

    Yeah, you are....because Whiplash is being made; and with the exception of the wings and the head, I think it's essentially the same figure.

    I think they will get to Lord Dactys, and it's why they're doing Whiplash now.

    Too bad he didn't come in quarter 2 of 2012.

    Hopefully he will finally be released this year.

    Lord Dactys would be amazing and i can see the Draego-Man wings for him. Maybe they will use the furry buck for him?

    His feet are tricky but hasnīt Batros gotten his FILMATION feet maybe the could use those again?

    This guy is gona make a pretty awesome toy, but I'm lamenting the fact that he's a royal figure. Not that it matters much - I mean I could use him however I like. One way or another I have a feeling he'll be visually striking.

    I think Lord Dactys will be released soon, precisely because Mattel will want to reuse the expensive Draego-Man wings tools as much as possible and Lord Dactys is the likeliest candidate for that reuse after Granamyr.

    I think Ceratus is pointless - he's basically Whiplash with a slightly different head. He'd be a total waste of a precious slot when there still so many unique characters to be made.
    Unless he's made to look differently, in a style that may match the 200X Whiplash head more, thus maybe selling extras?

    I've just changed my profile picture because we got Geldor in MOTUC!

    Furthermore the 4HM would do a lot to differentiate Ceratus from his brother. So I don't see it as a waste of a slot AT ALL.
    Agreed. Why is it when fans hear of a "like" character being made, their minds automatically go into "lazy b" custom mode? No one ever said "Just take Battle Cat's armor off- we don't need Cringer" or "Just paint a He-Man blue yourself- don't waste a slot!". For Ceratus, why not imagine a perfect 8" Classicized version with a new armor, shorts, feet, spikes, and tail? We're gonna have to move this conversation to the Ceratus thread soon.

    Speaking of 8" Ceratus, any word that Dactys is taller due to his segmented legs? He's gotta be hopefully...

    I do feel you on this one. But it is what it is. Ceratus is "MYP hype" and Whiplash is classical. I'm sure a lot of people would do as aforementioned and put Whip's widely unused 200X head on a spare Ceratus body to make them match more.

But he wasn't designed back then. The level of detail is totally in line with MOTUC. Not MOTU. There's a difference.
    He seems more "detailed" due to his multi-layered armor, segmented legs, and all the portrusions and other bits coming off him. Having all these parts come out with the quality we've come to expect must be no easy task for the design department, or be too cheap in the tooling mechanics department. Mantenna is a good comparison, but tooling cost are of lesser concern for him, he being a vintage character that everyone is required to love.

    I think...

    Its a matter of him not looking "organic" to people. He is simply to angular and it is anime in style.

    But...I think he looks great since he IS a palace gargoyle that has come to life because Orko cast a jacked up spell...the angular look works because he is stone and not a bat!

    Gargoyle, baby....gargoyle!

    It's nice to see there are people who want an official Ceratus figure aswell
    And yes, Dactys' increased height was mentioned by Toyguru in Dan's walklthrough

    His design definately screams gargoyle. Still mine won't turn to stone.
    He didn't in MYP either
