    I can't believe how many people are complaining about Battle Lion. He's been one of the most requested beasts for years.

    I also can't believe that, even if you ignore everything else that has been said about 2014-2015, that people don't understand that "focus on" vintage doesn't mean nothing but vintage.

    Wow... Battle Lion looks great! and with the helmet on, reminds me of the steed from the Lager of Lamot TV ad (for those of you that remember...) lol!

    I was just thinking that he would be an easy redo to make a Clawdeen.

    Unlike Stridor and Nightstalker, the Lion has a different head and armor.

    Your reaction wouldn't be any different if we had gotten a yellow Panthor with blue saddle (by your logic a complete different character) so there is no "BUT", it's the exact same thing.

    You simply don't like the character, that's all.

    I wasn't sold on Battle Lion until I saw him from the front, and then with his helmet off. Loving that mane on him. But while I'm loving the sculpt and the armor, the colors and just bland, not unlike the 200x battlecat, just moreso, a bit. Maybe some darker and/or contrasting metallic paint highlights would help... But like I said, I'm still 'sold.'

    I think Battle Lion looks fantastic - really good classicising of a 200X character. I'm a huge 200x fan but one thing that I never liked was how ridiculously big he was in the cartoon.

    The mane and armour help to make him look bigger than BC but still in the appropriate scale. So glad we got him instead of the pink panther.....

    I was disappointed last night TBH after Battle Lion was announced - not going to lie - Evilseed, Miro and Veena are WAY more A list than he is AND more demanded. However, seeing more detailed pictures this morning, he is indeed awesome and I will be glad to have him in my collection.

    I just think he's still a risk though, a lot of people who bought the sub thinking it will be strictly vintage POP/MOTU/NA for 2014 will be peeved he's included though.
    MOTUC WISHLIST- Karg ~ Saurod ~ Gwildor ~ Crita ~ Dylamug ~ Staghorn ~ Ninjor ~ Tung Lashor ~ Oo-Larr ~ Darius ~ Evilseed ~ Masks of Power Demons ~ Skelcons ~ Kothos ~ Hawke ~ Veena ~ Spydra ~ Angast ~ S-S-Sssqueeze ~ Sweet Bee ~ Tuskador ~ Lodar ~ Entrapta ~ Sorceress Teela ~ Hunga The Harpy ~ Kex Queen ~ Great Black Wizard ~ Mermista ~ Red Shadow ~ Fang-Or ~ Crimson Fury ~

    Completely agree, I don't like how oversized he and KG were in the cartoon. Moreso KG, with his arms that were bigger than his wife.
    He and Battle Lion both look much better in the Classics scale.

    These people clearly need to pay closer attention. Thinking and knowing are still two different things.

    Yay! Battalion!

    My son says that he is definitely the top of his beast want list so his King Grayskull can have his mount and so he can dress his Battle Cat in 200X armor.
    Top Ten MOTUC wants Sagitar, Lizard Man, Tung Lashor, Mermista, Sssqueeze, Ninjor, Great Black Wizard, Fang-or, Dragstor, Peekablue

    My biggest beef with Battle Lion... He doesn't really make sense.

    Battle Lion has armor similar to his 200x look. Battle Cat had a similar look in 200x.

    200x BattleCat armor was the vintage armor put through the 200x hyper detail machine.
    MOTUC BattleCat armor was the vintage armor put through the MOTUC machine.

    If Battle Cat and Battle Lion have similar looks in 200x...shouldn't they have similar looks in MOTUC?

    Also, BattleCat has more of a sword/sorcery feel to his armor while Battle Lion has a more "tech" look. Isn't this backwards?

    Love the head sculpt though...and I'm glad we're getting him but I wish he wasn't in the "wrap-up" years.

    Technically, yes, but as with Filmation, when a character didn't have a vintage figure they go with the look that we know. Personally I'm glad they do that.

    Yes, it's kinda backwards but one can't have it all.

    The only beef I have is his (fan-given) name: Battle Lion or Battalion

    To me he simply is the first Battle Cat.

    (I always thought that the idea of MOTUC was that, if a character didn't have a vintage figure, they'd sculpt him has if he had a vintage figure and then put it through the MOTUC machine)

    Rules can be bent or broken. The way I see it, as long as the final product looks good, it's a go.

    Looking at his pictures especially from the front he looks good. The saddle makes sense for King Grayskull to ride his steed because of his cape.

    But iīm sure i would have liked his reveal more if there hadīt been this 200X hint. He is more of a beast than a character and i expected a character and not a beast.
    So my expectations ruined that reveal for me……..

    I do not dislike the character. That's simply your assumpition. What I dislike is the result, which isn't much different in appearance than Battle Cat.

    Battle Lion wasn't a big want of mine, but I think he looks awesome! My one gripe would be that it looks like the saddle slides too far off of his back side.

    Honestly I'm very surprised that Battle Lion is part of the revised 2014/15 road map. I certainly expected to see some 200X representation in the next 2 years but I was hoping for Evil Seed, Veena, King Miro, or maybe a couple variants. I would have rather seen Stridor and Night Stalker, though one could still be coming later in 2014 with the other in 2015. I really love 200X but Battle Lion just does not feel like he should be a priority right now.

    How different were you expecting him to be? He's pretty much always been Battle Cat with a mane, no stripes and different armour.

    Why do people want Clawdeen before Catra's cat form?
    And
    Why didn't they put king Grayskull on top of the
    Lion?????
