    I kind of like Dawg, but he's still kind of plain & blah, looks a little better with the visor off though. . I don't like Sherrilyn much either, mostly due to her helmeted no transparent visor head....and I never liked the BG Teela buck much....at the moment she is sporting Marlena's space suit head.

    Ditz however....is my favorite of the bunch, he is really cool looking, the other 2 will eventually go back in the box for display, to make room for more of the newer more loved coming figures....but Ditz will likely stay out.

    However I think the names for the most part are kind of lame.
    Recent....Flutterina, NA Skeletor
    Coming....Rio Blast (sold already)
    Wanted....Entrapa, Light Hope, (A real) Filmation Hordak & Clawful

    Typically, plain can be boring. But in this case, I think it’s the simplicity of Dawg’s design that makes him look like he belongs in the vintage toy line. And that’s what I like about him.

    I think the thing that throws me off about Ditz is the He-Ro shin guards. Those shin guards are so specific to He-Ro that seeing them on any other figure throws off the “vintage” look for me. I would have liked him better if he had come with the standard Skeletor shins (with the new ankle joint like Fang Man).

    Question for someone with Ditztroyer: Is the orange of his chest close to the orange of the Palace Guard boots? If so, I may consider picking him up and slapping some Palace Guard boots on him.

    Ditz is just a shade darker, but they're pretty close. I think it would probably work.


    Here's the boots side by side so you can compare apples-to-apples. This shows off the color difference a little bit more.

    Got mine last night I like them, I think I got a good set, not too much warping on the weapons and Sherylyn's head seems to be pretty stationary. She did have some paint on her right forearm but that tends to be easy to deal with. I didn't really have to work too much to try any joints, well ankles on Dittz seem to be pretty tight but as long as they are in a flat position I would prefer that almost.

    Only real complaint it was a bit of some work to get the gun in Sherylyn's hand.

    Oh, no kidding. I finally gave up because I was so afraid of snapping that teeny little hand off.

    Thanks for the response. I have extra Palace guard boots with super tight ankles in my extra parts bin because I decided to display my palace Guard with Man at Arm boots. I may pick up a Ditztroyer and slap those extra palace Guard boots on him. The figure would look more classic/vintage to me with palace Guard boots. The orange looks close enough to display well.

    Wow, I had forgotten that the models whose pilots the figures are based on were that much more detailed than the actual vehicles. I have the Attak Trak stored away somewhere, but never had the other ones. Very cool stuff, and the added detail actually makes them fit in quite well with the Classics figures.

    the attack trak is the best imo, i love the details sculpted in there plus the canopy. and the talon fighter's legs are awesome. Do the wings flap? is eem to recall them flapping on the model.

    THat I don't know; the only one I have stashed away somewhere is the Trak. Flapping wings would be a cool feature, though, regardless.

    Weird-- I'm surprised no one has commented on this. Maybe a practical joke?? The bar code being marked out and the fact that there isn't a tag makes me suspicious. I guess I'd pick them up if they were $30, but knowing TRU they're full price.

    Wow those are some great pics man thanks for sharing! The FFM are all awesome figures definitely some of my favorite figures of this line, I think given the fact that they all scream vintage motu to me.

    Fighting Foe men on their respective vehicles

    Anyone have any pics of the fighting foe men on their respective orignal vehicles. I am assuming that dittstroyer wont work on the roton but the other 2 could work.
