    MOTU Classic FAKER!!! (2009 NYCC Exclusive)

    BREAKING NEWS!!!

    Well, I just happen to go on Matty Collector.com just now, to see an update
    for the MOTU Classic news, and lo-and-behold, Faker is here!

    Hey MOTU collectors!

    We're getting closer to the release of MOTU Classics. Everyone on the MattyCollector.comSM team is so appreciative of all our
    fan's patience as we work around the clock to get these figures correct before bringing them to market.

    We will be launching the MOTU Classics brand page here on MattyCollector.com in early November with release dates, photo guides
    and up-to-the-minute information about the MOTU Classics brand. It looks to be a very exciting 2009 with at least one new figure each
    month starting with a double delivery of He-Man® and Beast Man® in December.


    What's that? You want more? Well how about the NY Comic Con Faker® figure!
    That's right, in addition to the February figure Stratos®, Faker® will also be available at NY Comic Con
    (with additional supply available in March here at MattyCollector.com). But get him first at the show!

    PS: And yes, he will have the computer graphic under his armor! We wouldn't do the fans wrong!





    So, there is the NY Comic-Con exclusive for '09! I am pretty excited over this one, so it means a double MOTU month in February, as well!
    I am also happy that we will se him for sale on the site a few weeks later, since I probably won't make the show.

    Discuss!

    Cool! Of course, I rather see a picture of the new Teela figure. But Faker is cool.

    Never liked faker. One of the cheapest characters ever. Ik think this is a bad choice.

    Edit: I actually would like to change my poll that I will not be buying all Motuc figures.

    And I never understood that.. I didn't like him when I was 8 and I still don't now. I understand people would like him in the MOTUC like, but an exclusive should have been more special that a repaint.
    Anyway, nice to see others are happy with it.

    Why is Faker always an exclusive?

    Anyways, I'm happy we're getting him...but something doesn't look quite right. King Grayskull all the way to Skeletor (all the figures shown) have good looking paint jobs...but Faker looks really...cheap to me. Maybe it's because the blue is too reflective or something. I just hope the final product doesn't look cheap.

    Also...what's up with his hair? Take a look at Faker vs. He-Man:



    It looks like Faker's hair isn't glued on right/not centered or they made the hair too small for the head? I'm confused, but He-Man looks 1000 times better than Faker...yet they're the same?

    EDIT: Also, I find the silver kind of off-putting. I prefer the 80's black belt and dark purple bracelettes:

    I'm still not sold 100% on the style of these figures (I want to see how they work in the females, and the other shows like She-Ra and NA), but there's something about the COLORS on these things that makes me squirm with excitement. I don't know what it is, but whatever they're doing, they're doing it correctly.

    I think the photo that is in question is a computer mock-up,
    not the actual figure. The full body shot, however... seems to
    be the real deal.

    Sometimes these photos do the final product no justice, but I am still
    happy to see Faker getting the MOTUC treatment.

    A bit of an obvious choose really, would much prefer the station but thats not gunna happen. Not keen on the silver either and your right the hair is shorter, don't like that either hope the He-Man has not been re-sculpted to look like that.

    Awesome! Great news!

    I can see where the silver bothers some, but it doesn't bother me in the slightest.

    I kind of like the metallic colors on these classic style figs... Uh oh, now I know I'll be repainting my He-Man with metallic colors now! AHHHHH!

    Seriously, this is great!

    He looks OK, but is that picture the real figure, it looks awkward.

    I'll still get it, but slightly sad that he's an exclusive, Savage He-man would have been a better choice.

    On Matty, it says below the photos that these are of the prototype and the final product may vary.

    Coolness. Faker just screams exclusive to me so I'm not surprised and actually I had it in the back of my mind that Faker would be the first exclusive, I don't really know why.

    He does look a little weird next to He-Man but that's OK as long as he's here. Cool that they still offering the exclusives online to us, that's just sweet.

    Cool. Faker's not one of my favorite characters, but I'm definitely going to get him. -- Probably will wait until March, instead of finding someone who's going to the con. I'm still sort of soured on the whole experience of not getting my King Grayskull from someone on this forum.

    I hope he also comes with the 200X unreleased staction head. I'm not getting him either way, but that would be pretty neat to see it released in some fashion.

    Very cool indeed. It is an easy figure to make with just a color change, but why have both the 200x and MOTUC Faker an exclusive? At least there will be some on the site after. I hope I can get one in time before they are sold out.

    That's my fear, too. I'd be devastated if He-Man's hair has been changed and the figure we get looks like that.

    This is AWESOME! I love him and I think the silver looks great! I especially prefer it on the belt instead of the black.

    And I'd much rather have re-paints be exclusives than take up a month slot where all new figures should be.

    Looks great! Can't wait to get him!

    But on the other hand, it's a bit difficult to get too excited about another exclusive when all we currently have in hand is the previous exclusive, especially with both of them being basically "He-Man based" figures. I'm ready to start receiving our monthly figures already!

    Seeing that Faker Staction pic reminds me of how unfortunate it is that the 2 Pack was cancelled.

    Long Live MOTU!!!!
    Now and Forever!!!!
