    Official Vikor Arrival and Talkback Thread

    He arrived a few minutes after the hour. The new ankles are tight. His hair has a little flex to it, as does the sturdy cape. The necklace which holds the cape is very flexable. Weapons have a great rusty wash to them. Such an exciting figure!

    Edit: Just remembered Pixel Dan saying the shield wouldn't clip on the wrist. The clip will fit over his forearm, like so, and still cover his hand. (see photo below.)

    I know!!! The level of detail is incredible! The washes all over him... the sculpting in the cape alone blows me away! The horns on his helmet are just amazing.

    Yes, there is! I just noticed a few minutes ago that he has a small scar across his right pec, and a birthmark on his right lat. Probably just two slips of the brush, and it's barely noticeable, but it looks really cool!

    Edit: He has scars on his back too! It looks like he's been through quite a few battles.

    Man, I haven't even started thinking about the Monday sale and you already got Vikor. Way to go, Jon-man!

    He got here Friday and he RULES--there is no better way to start the weekend than with new MOTUC! Great shading, but mine doesn't really have any scars which I'm OK with, though I would have been OK with it if he had them as well. ALL the joints are tight, ESPECIALLY the ankles! I actually can't move them, but I'll take that over having them not be able to hold the figure up ANY day! THANK YOU MATTEL!

    Really wishing Mattel gave Vikor some emotion. His facial expression is so dead (Grayskull's too). Let's see some mean!

    My Conans arrived today. He is freaking awesome, but his right foot being about a quarter of an inch apart from the heel is kind of annoying. It just looks odd having a big gap there. Other than that though, I love 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.

    Someone posted this as a comment over on my blog:

    just opened my Vikor (sub-he arrived today) and they have nerfed the neck articulation! The ball joint is now locked into the neck like the DCUC figures, effectively eliminating all but side-to-side movement. The bottom of the neck peg is tied into the torso itself. You can plainly see it when you pop his head off.
    Anyone else notice/having this problem? I can't check because I don't have mine yet.

    Gotta disagree with that observation. My Vikor has the usual neck articulation. The only restriction in movement is the long hair and cape. I'm currently reviewing him for PE, so I took off the head and cape to observe, and the ball joint is perfectly fine on my figure.
