    MANTISAUR in MOTUC

    He-Man, Skeletor and She-ra have their own mount beast. Its time for Mantisaur for Hordak!

    IMPROVEMENTS in MOTUC
    Mantisaur have a Gun Machine in the back, but the figure can,t reach to it. Maybe a good improvement can be a rotating saddle or just design the saddle in a way it can work in both positions (Hordak looking to the front, Hordak looking to the back).

    I never had Mantisaur but would love to see him/it in MOTUC!

    What IS Mantisaur, anyway? Giant insect? Robot insect? Giant insect infected with TO virus?

    I would love him. Don't have high hopes though. Not sure if they could get multiple use out of the sculpt.

    I believe we're retreading another thread here, gang...look for this to get merged if I'm right. In any event, I think we could see Mantisaur eventually.

    Interesting bit on that packaging; I didn't know that Mantisaur could call up swarms of insects!
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    I'd love to have him, always wanted the original. I like him being some insect creature Hordak experimented on.

    I definitely associate Mantisaur with the horde and Hordak (even though the only bugs I had were Sectaurs) so would love to see a 4H version.

    Cool custom He-Bro.
    All caught up on figures...now what

    I would love to have a Mantisaur with posable legs and pincers. Maybe some parts of his limbs can be used for Monstroid and Spydor.

    I agree that Hurricane Hordak belongs on Mantisaur, like BA He-man on BC and Fisto on Stridor.

    I always wanted Mantisaur as a kid and never got him. He's not the highest on my MOTUC list buy I'd definitely get him if he came out, he'd need a lot of improvements but I'm sure the 4HM could do wonders with him.

    I have no nostalgia for this. I am not against it exactly but I would much rather have Clawdeen minimum.

    tbh I don't really mind if a new one is made the vintage one can sit the MOTUC hordak well enough without modification.

    See, and I would prefer Mantisaur and Catra's Cat form over Clawdeen. I really think the idea of a cat shape shifter needing to ride on a cat is kinda silly and a bit redundant.

    Mantisaur in MOTUC

    I don't know about you guys, but I'm feeling like Hordak needs an oversized beast in his crew!

    Anyone else clammoring for The Horde's robo preying mantis?

    I think Mantisaur has such and odd/cool design that I would love to see how the 4H did him in a MOTUC style update.

    I think I'd rather see something new for Hordak, maybe use parts of the Griffin buck to give us a wolf with bat wings to go up against He-Man and Skeletor's kitties?

    It must be This or Battle raptor for the next mount, as these 2 are the only ones remaining to give all the faction leaders mounts!

    As far as Mantisaur goes I would love to have her in the collection! I think she could definetly be done! Yes no real re-use of parts for anything else that I know of, and Hordak does deserve his personal mount! I feel that they could reason this one in being it is a real animal with mechanical upgrades, the same with all three dino's, then throw in clawdeen and the rest of the horses and what ever else was a living thing! Was War Whale or Killer Whale from 200X living also

    I suggest that the Vintage Mantisaur should be produced for the MOTUC rather than the green one (cartoon version).
