    How does MOTUC Buzz-Off compare to his other versions?

    I just got my MOTUC Buzz-Off, and I have to say he is my favorite out of all other versions. But who is yours? Do you love the nostalgia of the vintage figure, the unique sculpt of the 200X version, the articulation and size of the MOTUC, or did you use your stamper on every piece of paper you could growing up? So what do you say fans?

    MOTUC Buzz-Off by far...

    I still don't have him in hand. From the comparison picture though I would say MOTUC Buzz-Off.

    You know his name still cracks me up. I still love the old mini comic where if you read it quickly it looks like He-Man tells Teela to buzz off. Obviously he is just telling Teela to pair up with Buzz-Off but as a kid that a kid the way it was worded always gave me a chuckle.

    Anyway Classics Buzzy for the win. I just wish DR would have not screwed up in shipping him to me.

    I vote MOTUC Buzzy, but only when he's put into that knees bent, battle ready, vintage pose. Something always looks weird to me when MOTUC figures are posed with totally straight legs.

    Definitely!

    The original was cool in it's time and the 200x one is just ugly to me.

    The MOTUC details, articulation, and paint trump the rest pretty hard.

    I received my Buzz-Off today and he is down right terrible. Well, not the body, everything is great until you reach the head, then it goes downhill from there. His face is just ugly as hell. Not just that, but his lower arms are painted a different color than his upper arms, which just makes him look like a frankenstein. I hope one day we get a real version of Buzz-Off with an insect head over this henchman of the Monarch. Until then, I'll just have to pretend that Number 37 is Buzz-Off.
    Can someone PM me the US number for Matty? I want to talk to someone who might has a clue of what is going on.

    Evil will always triumph because good is dumb.

    to me the 200X one looks horrible when compared to the MOTUC version.

    the 200X version looks washed out and bland.

    that is my view though.

    If MOTUC had the extra 200x head my vote would have gone to the classic Buzz Off. So my vote remains with 200x. But I feel the MOTUC Buzz Off will grow on me. I'm really digging that 200x axe & large insect wings. And those color apps are fantastic.

    To me, the MOTUC version wins.
    Original is great but the classic is an improvement on it.
    The 200X is very scrawny looking and too stylized for my liking.

    As I've said, I really hate the MotUC version. It's just horrible. It's a joke to me. He's a fat happy bee-man and his head looks ridiculous.

    The 200X version at least looked like an insect.

    200X wins in all of these comparisons for me with the exception of maybe Teela and He-Man. I like action figures with unique parts and I don't care about articulation. 200X was articulated just fine enough for me.

    Matter of fact, I know I'm in a small minority but I wish they made everything in 4H 200X staction form with those awesome paint applications and "hyper-anim detail." I don't pose or play with these so the "toy factor" means nothing to me. It's the representation of the character and the 4H's representation of those characters was incredible for that time.

    The Jitsu, Stinkor, Webstor, Clawful, Leech, etc, stactions ... THOSE were interesting - not these cookie-cutter bodies where everyone shops at the same belt and furry shorts outlet. Some of the posts I read where folks think things like Clawful's original claw looks better than the 200X one and stuff like that makes my eyes pop out of my skull. The 4H made these characters look realistic, mean and fresh in 200X. Not much in MotUC will top those sculpts for me but hey, to each their own.

    My vote goes with 200x. Always has, always will.
    Don't mess up TWO-BADD! That's all I ask!

    And behold, I will be a blight upon the land and everything I touch shall wither and die. I shall reign in 2012 for my conquest is nigh.

    I have to vote for MOTUC Buzz-Off. He could have been a little better (200X head...), but overall he's the best. The 200X Buzz-Off's arms always bothered me because they seem too long...and he can't stand on his own!

    My vote goes to 200X.

    My perfect Buzz-Off would be the 200X design "bulked up" (the 200X insect body design in the "shape" of MOTUC) with Classics articulation.
