    I voted real sparks (Saurod). Any action feature that can set the carpet on fire is a good one.

    That's a really tough question

    I loved Clawful's spring loaded pincher and Kobra Kahns spray. But as a kid I really liked the smell of Stinkor and to this day that smell instantly makes me think of MOTU toys. So I'm going with Stinkor's smell.

    The only one you left off that was a selling point for me as a kid was Trap-jaws interchangable arms and his loop on top of his spring loaded helmet that let him slide down strings I had running across my room.

    followermovie: Saurod works like a gasless lighter.

    Dice: There was only 25 possible items in a poll.

    I have an moc Stinkor and it stills smelling through the cardboard.

    Hmm.. reading this makes me realize that the old toys were actually damn fun toys. I loved the popping face features, the sparks from Saurod and spinning Orko.
    I'm voting water squirting action though, it's just the ultimate universal fun.

    I voted Glow in the dark. Although laser power figs may be slightly better if I actually ever owned them.
    Any "action" feature that lets you play with your toys after your parents thought you'd gone to bed are great in my book!

    From the list above, i remember the water action-feature of Kobra Khan was fun as a kid and i liked the figure too!

    Although my real favourite (i know there's only 25 spots RBL ) was Roboto's action feature. Twisting the waist, watching the gears and his mouth/visor move... can't wait for the Classics version!

    For me it's got to be Thunder Punch He Man! Put TP He Man in action, twist his waist and POWWW!!! Then the second half of the treat... what a second... ah yes the mystical smoke the emanates from his backpack.

    I love stuff that glows in the dark, but I had to vote interchangable parts. I could play with Multi-Bot and Modulok all day long.
    I'm going to stop collecting toys and start smoking crack. Crack is cheaper and less addictive.

    My favorite is actually "Transformation" like Rio-Blast. That guy was bad to the bone! Sadly, since he isn't an option, I went with the blood chest of Misquitor! Mine still works...very awesome figure!

    this is tough! so many to choose from. some of these figures you got to have that action feature to get the most from playing with them. can you imagine not having some of those action features. having the action features adds to the imagination.

    From the ones I had, Roboto's rotating gears was the best action feature. But I would have liked Scareglow's glow better, if I had known about him and owned him.

    I think the Gunpowder Bang was the most fun feature that was available for MOTU. I loved using Thunder Punch He-Man's punch and that bang would happen!!!!.

    Changing face from man-e-faces = best way to get 3 figures for the price of one

    Even though I'm not a huge Fisto/Jitsu fan, I just got a Fisto and the spring powered arm is really fun and satisfying. I never had it as a kid, but I remember playing with other kids Fistos. IMO this should have been a feature in just about every action figure in the line, where practical.

    Other honorable mentions

    Stinkor's smell (smell is great for memory/nostalgia)
    Leech's suction
    Clawful's articulated claw
    BA He-Man/Skeletor's chests
    By the ancients!!!

    Very hard to pick as I think all of the action features were cool. However, I picked Ram-Mans spring legs. I know I'll be in the minority (and possibly a minority of 1 ), but he was alway a favorite figure of mine. I find all the action figures to be clever and cool, though.

    I had to go with Thunderpunch He-Man, i loved cap and water guns but putting a cap gun feature into a he-man figure, GENIUS!!
    2nd place would go to the water shooting figures
    3rd for webstor I think.

    Hadda go with Mekaneck's extending neck- you could really put a dent in stuff with that one!

    Well i think Modulok combo,s gave you the most hours of play time and if you had a Multibot , thats twice as long .
    Webstor,s gimmick was awesome but too fragile . My little brother and I had two webstors and both grappling hooks broke in about week even though played gently with them.
    Thunder Punch HeMan was impressive but you needed caps . krosfyah is correct it was a genius idea .

    Thunder Punch Heman
    Orko
