    so, what about the man-At Arms' 200X arm canon?

    so with all the hoopla and nonsense about Keldor not receiving his 200X Dual Blades because it sorta looks like the vintage power, let's talk about a weapon that's missing...the 200X arm canon that Duncan (Man-At-Arms) came with in the 200X toy line and readily used in the MYP cartoon. That one weapon made MAA 10 times cooler then he was in the 80s and I was a little miffed that he came with He-man's 200X Power Sword instead of his own weapon. Maybe they're saving it to come along with a future Dekker figure, which would make sense since he himself was a Man-At-Arms, was Duncan's teacher, and is retired. It could always say on his bio that when Dekker had retired, he handed off his powerful arm canon to his favorite pupil, Duncan. Hopefully since the arm canon never showed up in the vintage line, it will show up soon with someone or a weapons pack

    Yeah I really wanted the 200X cannon for the Classics figure. I hope we get it at some point.

    I agree about the arm cannon for MAA, the first thing I did with Keldor after opening is give him the 200X dual blades. IMO they look awesome with the figure.

    I actually never realized the weapon was missing until you mentioned it. Shows how much I liked the cannon in the first place. However I like your idea to include it with a future Dekker figure. After all, Matty mentioned every figure will have at least 2 accessories (except Stratos who has nothing at all )

    For me I don't miss it at all. I always felt that 200X went too far with the "techy" kind of stuff, and lost too much of the fantasy/barbarian element.

    I like for Man At Arms to be wielding that big huge club as his main weapon, but that's just me.

    I hope we get it eventually. It was his main weapon in 200X.
    Besides...more weapons for the Master of Weapons is a good thing!

    No, you see, it can't be released, because in 200x the arm canon was just a reimagined version of the pistol that Mattel included with the Classics MAA. So, you know, they had to go back to the classic look for Classics, or something...



    All joking aside, I would love to have MAA arm canon! I hope it's possible to get this somewhere down the road.

    I agree with this! The 'tech-morphing' of the 200x series was too over the top IMHO to fit in with the barbarian/sword & sorcery base to the original vintage MOTU, where much of the science was rediscovered from a lost age.

    The MOTUC Man-At-Arms in my view perfectly captures the vintage feel of Duncan with more traditional hand-to-hand combat between the Masters and Skeletor's forces.

    ^^^ This also.

    I would not be opposed to seeing the 200x canon released with a future version of MAA (or maybe equally appropriately with Dekker), but preferably as a general weapon, not a tech-morphing thing.

    For what its worth, I was also much relieved when DC's Metallo lost his Nekron-gifted tech-morphing ability for something more 'believable'.

    I always saw his arm cannon as a nupdate to the MegaLaser. This weapon was origially made for M@A in wave 5 of the original line. IMO when they make this weapon I will count it as getting the 200X arm cannon. Beside we all know Matty will claim it as this as well. I post pictures from our own toy archive here for any one that might not remeber it:



    Also the .org had the cardback proving this was M@A's weapon and was probably made because he used ray gun more than his mace in the filmation cartoon.



    I also posted a direct link to the archive page on the .org for the weapon:

    I never thought of that but now you mention it, the MYP Man-at-arms even has the binoculars that pop out like the megalaser.

    If they make that weapon in Classics, I believe Matty will call it what it is: a MOTUC MegaLaser. Why would you assert that "we all know Matty will claim it" to be something else?
    Still remembers we paid excessive shipping on Battleground Teela. Is confident Matty will resolve the issue and make it right for us.
