    MOTUC NEEDS: Sssqueeze, Dragstor, Saurod, Blast Attack, & Lord Masque.

    This guy looks like he's going to be one of the best figures in the line IMO, right up there with Mer-Man and Fisto!

    Congrats to tmc1984 on getting his figure!

    The only bummer to this I see is that if TG keeps to what they said about splitting certain things that we have two of left into one for 2014 and one for 2015, then we won't see Saurod until '15.

Do we know if he has any holsters or sheaths? It'd be great if he could store his swords crossed over his back.
    We are like minded in this! I was also thinking that someone named Blade should be carrying around a variety. Of course we can't get a ton, but two different ones pretty much tells that tale in itself! Also: two blades for different situations. The curved one is a bit larger and obvious for slashing and cutting, while the straight one would be better for thrusting. Might as well be prepared for varied enemies!

    I would kind of like him to have two of the same sword. Since I have two subs, I might open both and give him two of the same. Not sure yet, though.

    For those who wanted two of the same sword, I highly suggest finding a fellow collector who wanted two of the other sword and swap the one you each don't want.

    Which would work great in theory except I'm a greedy bugger and want two of each.

    Any chance anyone has asked the 4H why they sculpted the movie sword to be incompatible with nearly every male MOTUC hand, and why to accomodate that they sculpted Blade's right hand to be incompatible with nearly every male MOTUC weapon?

    It will probably be a closed hand on the next prototype.

    I kind of agree. Imagine him next to Clawful or Buzzoff. He does look like he's from a different line.

    Now if they made the shock troopers and Karg, he'd have some company.

    Its probably just protype hands and weapons at this point.

    it would have been a great display option, if a second prototype head with mouthguard were included....

    Yes it would have, but that prototype is so different looking, I think it would be possible to make it into a different character. In the Marvel/Star comics, the prototype blade was used but the character was yellow like Evil-Lyn. Since Mattel owns the prototype and can make characters any color they want it would be allowed. Add all the prototype components, the yellow skin and a new name and we have a new character:

    Name: ?
    Blade Prototype Armor
    Blade Prototype head
    yellow skin

    I've been numb to Blade's official reveal. Almost as if it's too much for me to process. I never had the original Blade figure but wanted him bad. I've waited a long time for this...

    MOTU has always been a "Disney-type" fantasy. Like the models dressed up as princesses dancing alongside the giant foam rat costumes. Blade and Spikor look a lot more natural together than Orko and... anyone.

    I was never a big fan of the vintage figure... or the character in the movie...
    He always was a Tri-Klops wannabe to me, just like Gwildor for Orko...
    But this figure is really detailed and amazing! Though I agree with most people who say it looks a bit out of place...

    I like Blade. Nice to see him make it into MOTUC. Had the toy as a kid. I think it was the only He-man movie toy I had as a kid. I lost the figure in a river near where I lived at the time and I wasn't brave enough to try and save it. I sometimes wonder if it would still be there somewhere. lol

    For anyone interested, I did an article on the vintage Blade figure to celebrate his upcoming figure. One of my most anticipated upcoming figures.
