    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.

    Since you asked:
    Screengrab (S): Boss/extra plating covering vitals, Gbagok (G): Shaped pecs on armor,
    S: MOTUC Skeletor gauntlets, G: More stylized version
    S: extended loin cloth waist armor, G: Armored briefs
    Gbagok's leg armor and exoskeleton also more detailed.

    btw, looking at the pics again, reinforced the idea that they would use the Whiplash/Buzz-Off torso for his upper body due to the exoskeleton.

    So want Lord Dactys. he would make for a great looking figure. Another flying character would be sweet. Would like the leader of the Caligars aswell but a bit later on, would be a cheap way to do him as Whiplash is already out.

    Lord Dactys is high on my list, but with The Faceless One scheduled for next year, I was hoping the possible second MYP character would be Evilseed.

    So I vote for Lord Dactys in early 2012.

    Yeah I'd like him. I agree he would prob need a lot of new tooling though.

    Wow, Lord Dactys is an amazing character!

    I never comment on him, because I don't remember his episode in MYP. What's the name of the episode?

    Lord Dactus would look bad! He'll have key elements to Batros if/when the Filmation rights are acquired. Honestly, the more steam this line picks up, the more I'm certain issues with Mattel getting those rights will be a thing of the past. Then we'll see the figures a lot of us have been waiting for.

    Regardless, Dactus has a great design and I'm positive he'll look amazing in Classics.

    While my drawing is old and misses some details because it's based on a paused VHS copy (on the pan-up of Dactys from the episode "Underworld"), I think it's still pretty accurate to the what the character looked like and to what Sephron13 is saying.

    I think J-Bird's drawing however is perfect for how we should expect Dactys to be adapted for the MOTUC formula. I think however he will probably use the Whiplash feet, and may get some more original armor (hope none of the He-Ro armor though).

    I'd love to get a Dactys! He's high on my list, right after Ceratus and Evil Seed.

    Hey gbagok, sorry I didn't give you proper credit for your excellent drawing of Dactys! I knew you and ICEMAN worked on those excellent fanfics and I got you guys mixed up.

    Anyway, after The Faceless One in May '11, I hope Dactys is on deck for the next 200X character we see. I'd love to have him and a couple of Spleean(sp?) army builders flanking him.

    I'll grab him....But being honest, a figure of him will eat up a lot of budget/tooling...and for a secondary character...Don't know, but Matty wont be doing that for a long time.

    As they say, the line is sustaining itself, but noit gnerating that much of $$$...Says Matty, yeah right! LOL

    On precedent, not that much - Skeletor/Zodac lower arms, Hordak or Whiplash lower torso, Optikk/Roboto/MEF loincloth all immediately leap out as probable part reuses. Maybe Whiplash upper torso too, with the wings (the obvious big splurge) connecting the same way as Whiplash's tail.

    New head, new armour, new wings, maybe new upper arms and thighs - not that much in context. The big question is what they'd do with the lower legs - between the "classicising machine" thing and pure stability, I can't see them going with the skinny tiptoe legs.

    There are 4 200x figures I really want sooner than later :

    1- Prahvus

    2- Evil Seed

    3- Lord Dactys

    4- Ceratus


    I'm all for a Lord Dactys figure ! When should he be released ? Well, I'd say somewhere in 2012 or 2013.

    In order for him to be done properly, Mattel will need some new tooling. That is obvious.

    Buzz-Off had skinny insect type legs in the MYP cartoon so I wouldn't be surprised if they just used the Buzz-Off lower legs on the Dactys figure and say thats the Classicized version of him.
