    I've seen the thread a few times.. just never clicked on it.. but I'm determined to HEAL Rio everyday

    I've seen quite a few people voting for him.. I think if we all vote for him every single day we can make him #1 in his bracket!

    I had him, and I loved him, as a kid. All that stuff made him very cool to play with.

    And I thought the human with weird gun bits comming out of him was just fine in MOTU. He fit great with Mekanek, Manny Faces, ect.

    I do like that staction as well. I dont think we need the head, but I could see the second arm. I wouldnt want it mind you.

    What I would like is if it doesnt work like the original figure, (which isnt mekanical like roboto, not that they didnt do roboto, but like tri-clops's visor, they could do this literal) THen I would like snap on peices of the guns or something, so you could recreate the original multi gun pop out.

    Of course as I suggested above, I see no reason they couldnt do that. BUt altogether it will be an expensive figure to make, so I hope all the money goes into making the vintage figure MOTUC. If they can afford 200x stuff after that, go for it.

    I would get a MOTUC Rio Blast figure. I think it would be cool if it had an arm cannon attachment like Roboto.

    I keep voting against Rio Blast in that 90-1 thread. I didn't have Rio Blast as a kid and he always looked silly to me. I'll buy him when he comes out in MOTUC for sure. But I had to choose someone to vote against in the thread.

    i do wonder if they are going to give him a cowboy hat/helmet as a new classics type of feature.

    it could be a cool addition.

    Rio fans, time to round up some votes!

    Our man Sheriff Blast is currently the target of a vicious smear campaign by a coalition of varmints and bushwhackers over in the MOTUC Idol 90-to-1 thread!

    It's up to us to rustle up some friends, form a posse and lend him a hand! Or a cleverly concealed laser blaster, whatever ya got!

    Just in case ya need a map, partners - here ya go!

    To be perfectly honest, I know next to nothing about Rio Blast. I never owned him as a kid. He never appeared in any of the cartoons. Thus, he means nothing to me. However, I like the idea of a space cowboy bounty hunter, and I'm assuming that is what Rio Blast is, so I would love to see him updated in the MOTUC. Not to mention that he is one of the few characters where I think either look is good for him, the vintage or the 2002 staction, so either would work for me when they do do him.
    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.

    I agree. I thought he fit right in with the line as well. If Rio doesn't fit in, then Trap Jaw, Multi-Bot, Dragstor, etc. shouldn't either. I also agree that I preferred the original to the staction.

    How about if Rio's guns were clip on, and would work on any figure?

    Then, when the Horde Troopers are released, the weapons come in a weapons pack in a colour similar to Horde Troopers, for making a Colonel Blast custom?
    That's a good idea, so good, it was mentioned earlier in this thread

    Gee, somehow the meteorbs & twistoids didn't make it into the starting 90

    [The "POP tart" line is gratuitously insulting to those who LIKE the She-Ra characters though...]

    I hadn't read the thread before offering up the Meteorbs, et al for sacrifice.

    As for the other...it was a joke.

    The original figure was one of my favorites to play with. All of Rio's guns were so cool, especially the ones in his hands. A cybernetic cowboy is a great addition to any line, we don't see nearly enough of them.

    I didn't know much about cowboys (I didn't even know what a redneck was until much later). I watched the Dukes of Hazzard, but I thought it was set in the past or something. I've lived in Lisbon and NY/NJ all my life. I learned that the Dukes of Hazzard was not a period piece upon moving to Florida for a while.

    Awww. You gotta realize, Big Country. It's nothing against Rio Blast. But I'm the father of two daughters and they absolutely love the POP girls. Part of the reason I collect this line is because my girls love them. I'd like to see POP girls sooner rather than later. I can wait a bit for Rio Blast.

    I know..it was all in jest!

    We all have our favorites...Dan has Mosquitor, I have Rio Blast & Spikor. I love pretty much everything we've gotten so far (except Optikk!) and want everyone to get their favorites.

    I just want my grail now!!!!

    I'm with Big Country here...except for Optikk. He's actually one of my faves now that he underwent the 4H treatment.

    Well, you'll be glad to know that as soon as/if Calix (for whom I'm currently voting) gets eliminated in Bracket B, my plan is to vote for Spikor and as soon as/if Dragstor (for whom I'm voting against) is eliminated, I'll start voting against Stinkor (Spikor's biggest competition--I never liked Stinkor much).

    Imo, the Four Horsemen didn't do much to the vintage Optikk. Other than making his eyeball smaller(bad idea imo) & giving his pupil 2 different colors(cool idea), the MOTUC version is practically identical to the NA version.



    If you like Optikk, I think his original sculpter(s) should be the one(s) to get the credit.
