    Palace Guard Discussion Thread

    These are really nice I think, but I have another reason for starting this thread. With these figures, they could easily make a special off-shoot idea for a "club Eternia" idea. They can introduce a "Now YOU can be a Master of the Universe" design a figure. With the parts on hand it would be easy for them to make a $35 fan club that includes a figure that would be "us". I'm just thinking on it here and I just figure it would be a neat idea. It's another way they can get our money too, hehe.

    Personalized figure? I'd be all over that! As it is I'll probably make one these guys "me" any way.

    Yep. exactly. Now that it's being said one of the head sculpts will be made after Toyguru, it makes the idea even more valid!

    Has anyone else mentioned that these were based on the FILMATION Eternian Guards?

    These are probably based on the armored 200X guards, without the anime hyper detail. Basically the same idea as Filmation.

    I'm not seeing any MYP influence at all. The main difference is the arm and leg armor, which they didn't have in MYP. I'm wondering why the figures have so much armor on their arms and legs, and MAA only wears it on one side. I wasn't expecting them to have any. I might remove various armor pieces and make them all look different, or something.

    MAA is just that good that he doesn't need to wear complete proper protection. Though in the first MYP picture the legs are completely armored on the guards. I'm actually glad they have them decked out in complete armor- easiest enough for people to remove if they want bare arms and legs and easier for me to leave them as is.

    I love the figures.

    This is probably going to be the worst month of the year, I'm just warning y'all. People who have just one sub are going to flock to Mattycollector to get at least one more set of guards, and with all the other stuff on sale...

    Gonna be WSOD day.

    Ok the four heads...I get the human ones.

    The snake one suppose to be a homage to the MYP episode were everyone is turned into snake people? The furry one is one of CC's cat people?

    I think I'm just going to pretend there is a variety of races which fall under Randor's kingdom and the Royal Guard is an equal opportunity employer.

    Yeah, with the green armor. Not the yellow. So I thought they would just end up with the green. But they're giving a lot of options, which is nice.

    It's gonna be terrible. With all the people buying extras for "MOC", plus a poll that shows some people are planning to buy a LOT of these, it'll be a nightmare. Add in King Grayskull which a lot of people didn't get the first time, and Grizzlor, and you have a recipe for the worst matty sale ever. I don't know what they're thinking.

    Yes...and Hsss never transformed anyone into a cat. Both inhuman heads should be heroic. One warrior from Felis Fola to go with Carnivus and one Caligar- I bet we will get Ceratus sooner than later

    Regarding the bio that just surfaced and the snake head:

    I think I've figured out what the snake head is and why it's included.

    The black head IS Clamp Champ, before his promotion. I would bet $20 that part of Clamp Champ's "real name" will be "Spector," (they mention, randomly, in the bio a Lieutenant Spector) and that he was promoted when MAA was re-turned-into a Snake Man.

    They avoided explaining that at the con in the Q&A, because it won't be revealed, probably, until Clamp Champ's bio.

    The snake head is MAA.

    I think you're 100% correct.

    I know there "isn't" or "shouldn't" be any Filmation influence in MOTUC but I still think the snake head is a Repton and the black Royal Guard is this guy from the Rainbow Warrior

    ^^Interesting pictures. Now they're showing 4 different chest plates. One design is similar to the battle armor damage, with 3 plates, and the 4th is the one with the bird design. An indication of rank, maybe?
    I also like the Keldor shins/boots. I wonder which version we're getting.
