    Chief Carnivus Has Arrived! Official Talkback, now that he's in hand

    Chief Carnivus just arrived on my doorstep. I live very close to where these things are shipped out of, so I always get them super early.

    Excellent figure! It far exceeded my expectations. I adore the shield, in particular, and am ecstatic this was a 200X figure chosen for the line, though I was not a huge fan of his specifically from MYP.

    IMO, he fits in beautifully with MotUC.

    Now that we have him and Marzo, the last must-have from MYP is Hawke. C'mon Mattel, give her to us!

    What do you all think with Carnivus in hand?

    I'm a non-subber, so no Carnivus for me yet.
    But overall I'm with you!
    Not really much a fan of his from the MYP toon.
    But I love the shield, and I think he's a great addition to the line.

    My sub Carnivus just came - I really like him. The bio leaves me wanting to know much more on him though. Figure is excellent!

    Yer a lucky dude, but...Hawk? I'd get it if she's just your favorite, but I can't put her above Queen Marlena, Faceless One, Dactys, Prahvus, Veena, and Evilseed, let alone instead of them!

    Time to change that sig, Pat.

    Speaking of YOU, don't you miss the regular monthly Mattycollector.com Facebook page reveals of the backs of the bios? I know I do.

    I agree. Not dissing on the bird lady- especial since she would make classic comic and Filmation fans just as happy as 200x fans, but she isn't a 200x priority.(I want her too.)

    You mean my avatar pic? Consider it done

    Yeah, I'm missing them - BIG TIME. I think it must be because we had so many revealed at SDCC? I'm hoping they resume.

    I got my shipping confirmation email but I usually get mine the following Monday after it ships. Guess Dayton Ohio is off the beaten path or something...

    Well, first, I don't consider Queen Marlena a 200X character, even if that's the design they end up using for her. She's been around since before Filmation.

    The rest of that list would be awesome, don't get me wrong. I want all those character, but Hawke is head and shoulders above those for me, personally.

    If I was to prioritize 200X characters, keeping gin mind that i"m probably forgetting some at the moment, it would be something like…

    1. Hawke
    2. Faceless One
    3. Dactys
    4. Evilseed
    5. Veena
    6. Prahvus
    7. Stingrad

    I'm sure there are others that would be on that list, too.

    I don't either, but I thought you were lumping them all together since you listed Count Marzo and Hawk, both characters that predate 200X.

    So am I. As a result, I barely visit Matty's Facebook much since SDCC revealed many bios. Maybe in October?

    I think it'll resume with Buzz-Off's bio. Then it'll be Bow, Vikor, King Hsss, Battle Armor Skeletor (how is Skeletor getting armor?), Pre-Eternian Disguise He-Man, the Etheria Map and the Shadow Beast's bio.

    Ah, I got ya.

    It's a nuanced thing. I don't really consider Marzo/Hawke/Evilseed's earlier incarnations, because the characterizations, stories, and designs of the characters were so radically different. They are same in name only, so I consider their 200X and FIlmation counterparts as separate entities. I think a lot of fans do.

    I should've been more clear, though. Sorry!

    Yay! Finally a shot with the kings! We need Dactys, Ceratus, Queen Andreeno, King Torius, and that Kulatak Elder guy so they can form a band.

    Okay, I've thought that this figure didn't look like it belonged in the line along side the others. Now that I've seen it in Dan-O's figure, I take it back. It looks amazing!

    And now for my usual first question regarding any new figure:

    What's the verdict on the ankles?

    Mine are quite sturdy. Not like one of my two Adams who had ankles that made him look tipsy.
