    Who has been the most dissapointing Classic thus far?

    Of all the figures that have been either released or scheduled to be released, which has been the most dissapointing. Not your least favorite mind you! I may think Webstor is my least favorite but I think his classics incarnation is Waaay better than the original. So who has been the one who didnt' live up to the hype, or looked better on screen than in person, or just wasn't the way you imagined them?
    My vote: Evil Lyn. Perhaps she was a victim of her own good looks but the 2002 version was ASTOUNDING! I really wish, and I know about the whole classics resembling the original motif, but i really wish not just her paint, but the look of her face and body were more like the MYP productions version.

    Eh... in all honesty, I don't think there is a figure I could vote for on here. As far as I'm concerned, MOTUC is as good as it gets, and they all look fantastic to me.

    Keep in mind that I totally agree. They all do look great. But as we are all creatures of anticipation and expectation, I'm sure there was one that was .0000000000001% less satisfactory with you than the rest.

    Normally I'd say that Tytus falls in this category, but there is one figure that's been most disappointing to me: Keldor.
    Yes Keldor looks cool, but he feels lacking. (mostly for being a Bonus figure)
    I'll start with the Cape. Yes it looks cool, but they're promoting it as a special accessory that you need to buy Keldor TWICE so you can use it on Skeletor. Unfortunately the cape has a huge gap on its back that looks bad on Keldor and worse on Skeletor.
    -The Arms: They coulde have used the "evil fin" arms on Keldor and painted the fins to look like Gauntlets. (which would be keeping the same spiky motif as Keldor's boots.)
    The Triklops/Randor wristbands don't look as great. They look hyperdetailed on Keldor.
    The completely different shade of Purple doesn't match Skeletor's. So you can't swap heads with Keldor and have a nice looking "filmation" Skeletor to match the 2pack He-Man. (or even an MYP Skeletor.)
    -The lack of a melty face head: The 200X Keldor had it and it looked awesome. It was more gruesome than the cartoon, but they could've toned it down for MOTUC and we could display Keldor making the pact with Hordak. Or having Keldor getting his face melted by the power of Randor's Rock & Roll (assuming you own a couple of Electric guitars that fit the MOTUC scale). I mean what's the point of the Acid vial if Keldor can't have his Acid side-effect face?
    -The lack of "Anime Hyper detailed" Swords: Keldor without them looks like he is missing something. The half swords just don't cut it.
    Hopefully somewhere along the line the 200X skeleswords can be released (with the Anime Hyper Detail reduced or eliminated) and rectify this seemingly small mistake. (and no the vintage power sword is not the 200X skeleswords without the anime hyperdetail)

    Unlike Tytus who has functionality problems all over the place (and is a shrimp of a giant), Keldor is more disappointing for me because I have a bigger attachment to Keldor as a character.

    I will try to get one on the fifteenth, but She-Ra and Faker are higher on my priority list.
    FINALLY!! GLIMMER IS IN MY SHELF!! Now who shall I fight for?

    Evil-lyn with that terrible case of jaundice of hers....

    Screech was the only reason I wanted her anyway.

    My vote goes to Webstor.

    Even though I do think the figure is awesome, I wish his extra limbs could be removed without taking his armor off.

    My vote goes to Tytus,
    I'm disappointed because he is too small imo.
    He should have been at least 16" at minimum.

    This was exactly the reason I also voted Tytus.

    I too, find it hard to vote. Zodac is usually the figure I like the least, but if we are talking disappointments, Zodac hasn't let me down at all since that's what I was expecting.

    I gotta say The Goddess and Teela because of the bobbleheads. Teela was a long awaited figure who had her impact blunted by a terrible flaw. Probably moreso The Goddess, since she has all of Teela's weaknesses, as well as breaks so easily.

    So, it's The Goddess. The breakable, bobbleheaded Goddess, who will probably never be re-released since she did so poorly.

    You think Hordak is 200X inspired? He's pretty classic to me, except for the staff and crossbow...

    Pains me to say this as he is my favourite character but... i agree

    Too bad he'd take up a new SKU for him to be remedied.

    The Great Green Bobble Head

    Seriously... The worst figure by far is The Green Goddess. Her Bobble head drives me crazy other than that she would be awesome.

    Webstor. After the awesome staction version, i was hoping the MOTUC version would lean a bit more 200x on him cause I really wanted and action figure version of him. Too puffy and smooth; almost looks like a kiddifed spiderman in my eyes.

    Second would be Mossman, Never got a true MYP version of him in the 200x line (he had to be a flocked beastman), and in the classics, they skimped on parts that could have made him both vintage and 200x (clip on shinguards and removable mantle).

    i cannot begin to understand the amount of negativity towards stratos the figure is perfect and highly detailed, i remember watching them before the line kick-started and my thought was that he had to be the best!
