    So Jitsu will indeed get the same Armor as Randor. Hmmm...

    So the MOTUC/DC stuff is coming back in 2011.

    I like the part where he talks about the major characters. Spector really needs to listen to this.

    Just downloaded it, but if the above is true.. well that sucks arse

    They should have made the armour more generic then.

    Why not give Jitsu his own armour like the staction?

    Cheap *******s..

    Things you need to consider is that: 1) Even if they keep the Randor armor, they can add things extra to it to make it unique enough for the character. 2) This is a Classics line that was meant to imitate what made the originals great for fans and the company...which means reuse of existing pieces. Get used to it. 3) It wasn't his armor that made Jitsu great, so that is a secondary concern. The main concern is the head and hand sculpts.

    I won't panic unless I see it and THEN it sucks.

    But Randors armor isn't a copy of Jitsu's 80's armour. They put a big cross on it and implied it is Randors symbol by also putting it on his staff and sword.

    It would be stupid having Jitsu walking around like that.

    And I (AND MANY OTHERS) do not think Jitsu's armour is of secondary concern. Many of us had Jistu, but didn't have Randor.

    I am just willing to give the 4H a chance to show what they can do to change it up and still use it. A few added pieces of plastic did wonders for Optikk, and could to change Randors armor to lean more asian. Heck, the cross may be entirely blotted out for all we know. I am just stating....wait and see.

    Doesn't sound to me as if it's set in stone that they will recycle Randors armor for Jitsu.

    scott mentioned buzz-off as one of his favourites... i hope we don't have to wait too long then for him! he mentioned he liked a couple of 200x characters but didn't name them unfortunately (i guess bcs one of the two is coming this year).

    I'm so glad they're making Marlena (eventually).
    I love an all inclusive canon!

    Hm...didn't sound like he said anything about Jitsu and Randor sharing armor. He said the original figures did, and that brought up the question of which figure to do first, since they would probably (I assume) mold the armor for whichever character came first. So they chose Randor and worked it accordingly, then (once again, I assume) they'll work the existing armor in such a way to make it seem different for Jitsu.

    I'm just now listening to the podcast.
    I'm interested to hear everything Toyguru has to say.

    Edit: Just finished listening. Pretty interesting stuff.
    So they want to get to Marlena soon, huh? Hopefully it will be soon.

    I liked the bit at the end with Mo-Larr. It's not the fans, Matty is targeting people like Vinto-Man's friend (although I'll be buying the set to). So it doesn't matter what the fans think about Mo-Larr.

    Fictional characters are just that. Fictional. They have no personality or free will of their own.
    Writers and editors mold them to their own wants and needs.
    All we as the audience and fans can do is pick and choose our favorite interpretation and ignore the rest.

    I listened to this episode yesterday and was going to post the link here but I figured someone else would. Definitely love the Masters of the Universe Chronicles, Chris. You do a great job with it. Always a great combination of everything MOTU and amazing guests every month. This month was no exception with Toyguru on there.

    Oh I know you are, I've been listening each month and believe me I know! I'm always glad to hear your Count Marzo figure shout outs on MOTU Chronicles! I didn't post the link when I listened yesterday because I didn't want to steal your thunder.

    I really loved the Larry DiTillio episode. That was my favorite one by far since I'm a huge fan of his episodes both Filmation and MYP.

    TG said "you're going to see characters that no one expected and ONE that everyone has been waiting for."

    my interpretation: SHADOW WEAVER!!!

    just look at Adora, Orko, Battle Cat (100% Filmation)- I bet they already have bought the Filmation rights. they could make so much money with it!

    Yeah, you're right. It's Shadow Weaver, despite the million times TG has stated that Filmation-specific characters were off limits. Maybe he's said it a million and one times.
