    Looks pretty awesome. I'm guessing I get one with the sub so I'll try to pick up a second as well...

    He's my favorite out of the new reveals. 100% Filmation baby! It really does feel like a character we should have had all along. The only thing I'm wondering now is should I get 2 or 3? Beautiful work all around!!!

    I don't like it but not because its not a great figure, I have never really been fond of the character itself.

    I hope it does really well though, would not mind seeing some other beasts and stuff we have never gotten before!

    It's awesome with a lot of Filmation influence. I'll be buying 3 for Beast Man.

    I love it.

    I've asked this several times, but since this thread is the appropriate one, "why is the face the Filmation Shadow Beast, and not the MYP one?"

    I've read over and over the replies that tell me (as if I or anyone else here didn't know) that they can make the Shadow Beast because it appeared in the MYP cartoon.

    We all know this... and that isn't what I am questioning. I question how it is that it has the Filmation face. Shadow Beasts are not in the MOTU Style Guide.

    Let's compare, shall we?
    MYP:

    Filmation:



    I think the design is GREAT though!!! I kind of wish it were purple... but brown is fine

    I REALLY like him except for the fact that he is brown. He shares a lot of parts from Gygor and with his brown color he looks too much like an Ape to me. Now he is darkbrown with lightbrown detailing and I wish they would paint him darkgrey/lightgrey or black/grey. Either way he would be more of a "SHADOW"beast then a brown ape. And on the screens he looked much darker than the brown one in the cabinets after the show. But I could always repaint him myself ofcourse if he still turns out brown with the final product.

    Other than that he looks amazing, really looking forward to adding him to the collection.

    Yeah, unless a Shadow Beast appeared in a mini-comic, he's 100% Filmation.

    Maybe they will change the colors. He was still in a proto stage.
    I would rather see them in purple.

    I think most of us would.

    Unless they appeared in the 200X toon, but then it would be a classic version of that design. Maybe this is the 200X design without hyper anime detail?

    It is an expensive figure to army build so I have to think about how many I will buy. 2 are definites, 1 loose and 1 MOC but do I need to display 2 with Gygor or 3 by themselves or 4 with Beastman

    They should be colored like these:



    Or maybe a little bit darker.

    Yes they can make a Shadow Beast because they were in the toon, but they have to look like the MYP Shadow Beasts.

    The best example is Count Marzo. He was a Filmation creation, but possible to make because he was in the MYP toon. His figure had to have the MYP look. They couldn't give him his fancy yellow jacket, etc.

    Well...this is the same with the Shadow Beasts. They are using the head, hands and feet STRAIGHT out of Filmation! That is, unless they appear this way in a mini-comic. Anyone?

    As you can see from bcrduke's picture, the MYP Shadow Beasts have a dual horn on the head and one horn out of each cheek. They also have 4 fingers and a thumb:

    All I'm saying is maybe extra horns and fingers are Hyper-Anime detail!!

    its difficult to separate my fondness for the MYP shadow beasts but I'm glad that we are getting them.
    I think I will buy two.

    Definitely straight out of Filmation and I LOVE it!

    Here go a couple more Filmation Shadow Beast pics:




    Does anyone know if they ever had that club in either Filmation or MYP? It looks familiar but I can't quite remember?

    I think this is a fantastic sculpt, however its the large scale beast I cared leased about, I think I would have prefer any other beast over this choice.

    After Battle Cat, Gygor, and now the Shadow Beast, all of my favorite MOTU toys are beasts. I hope we see Granamyr soon(obviously he'll be mini-comic green though).

    Nice addition to the MOTUC, and good to see him so soon after Gy-Gor will be released (surprisingly quick). I'd like to get 2 of him as henchmen for Beastman, and at this stage it's the question of whether I get 1 sub or 2...
