    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.

    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.

    I'm disappointed because he is too small imo.
    He should have been at least 16" at minimum.

    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.

    For me it's Triclops. I think the whole three eye vusor is way to big / out of preportion to his face. I would have liked to have seen more of his 2K chain male loin cloth design worked into his current MOTUC figure.

    I FULLY SUPPORT THE INCLUSION OF ILLUMINA IN MOTUC!!!!!

    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 I need a Crita!! Crita is to Mara what Evil Lyn is to Teela. If we ARE getting Mara, then we NEED Crita.

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

    Screech was the only reason I wanted her anyway.

    As quickly as Evil-Lyn sold out, I tend to disagree.

    This was exactly the reason I also voted Tytus.

    True, but not every figure has the same production numbers. I'd be surprised if Evil-Lyn's numbers weren't a lot higher than the Weapon's Pak or Optikk.

    In my opinion, Mo-Larr has been the most disappointing figure this far.

    I voted for Webstor. Cool character and good design overall, but his backpack being jacked up really did it in for him, in my opinion.

    But really, MOTUC is the bee's knees. I haven't complained too much about anything!

    I'm going with Tytus simply because my "WOW" factor with him faded quicker than with anyone else. I knew the artiluation was limited from Pixel Dan's review, but there was some part of me hoping mine would be able to work around such limitations. Like I've said before, Battle Cat is a comletely unique sculpt that has more articulation and proves to be nearly as tall on his hind legs as a big He-Man. Part of me looks at that in a positive manner though, it does say something for Battle Cat.

    Evil Lyn, definately. I hate the yellow look, and really wanted them to put more effort into the figure than just repainting the exact same Teela body.
