Frankly, I almost would've rather have seen the waist-twist punch action for all the figures, if they were really going for the nostalgia factor.

    Personally, and this is strictly a hunch, I think it maybe that Mattel is hedging their bets. They've mentioned, on numerous occasions, "if this line goes to retail", and "if there is a live action movie". We may start to see some of the action features applied, like Roboto's, simply so that they can put less effort into releasing these same figures to retail later.

    All that being said, I'm not complaining. The moving gears certainly makes Roboto a more compelling figure. Honestly, until 200X, I never had much feeling aboutt Roboto. It wasn't until 200X that I really liked the character.
    Roboto doesn`t have his action feature on the vintage figure that was his moving visor which can`t be done due to his removable head. Moving gears are a homage to the original figure much like Webstor have a string but no climbing action

    If this is what she's wearing when mediating, I'd hate to see what she's wearing for combat.
    She`s not, She`s a Queen, how many Queen`s do you see going into battle?

    BB: Right, and everyone was completely onboard, you know we always get this mandate, make it right, you know, don’t go the lesser option, don’t go the easy route.
    While it was great to hear about the care and attention given to making Roboto as excellent a homage to the vintage figure, this makes me even madder about the poor wimpy sculpt of King Hiss' snake body.

    Where is the damn extra snake wrapped around the central neck???

    Where was the care and attention - the 'mandate' to 'make it right' - with King Hiss' snake body???

    Where was the 'don't go the easy route' with King Hiss???

    Sometimes the inconsistency with Mattel just drives me absolutely mad.

    I like that, according ot the interview, Keldor isn't going to be some tragic character tainted by Hordak & Demo-Man. I like that he was always a bad guy.

    The difference here is that apparently this is the 4H final sculpt, so this is the what the 4H are pleased with. If that is truly the case, why would Mattel go and change it? If they did that to any other figure fans would be in an uproar. See the dilemma?

    Again, this is what we are led to believe. I have no idea how satisfied the 4H actually are with the sculpt.

    Part Three

    Part three is up, but it focuses on DC. I think that's it for MOTUC though. There will be a part 4. Maybe it's for Ghostbusters.
