    That is some superb work there. A bit big for my tastes, but very awesome for sure.

    I love the fact that he is massive, he should be, he is the Juggernaut of MOTU after all. That is awesome work.

    It looks great, but it doesn't feel like an MOTUC figure. I've seen Joe's work personally and I met him a few times. I love his Goddess and 200X Count Marzo, but this Ram-man fell a bit short.

    Ram-man does look a bit cartoony in comparison to the other figures and I don't think Ram-man is that big. In comparison to the other figures, in the Filmation, Ram-man was shorter but with more girth. In the 200X series, he was a bit taller, but again more girth.

    He should have kept the girth and brought him down to size a bit.

    Looks awesome, but I feel that that's way too tall for Rammy.

    Its a nice custom, however I've seen better work from other customizers on the board.

    Joe's made a name for himself, but I don't feel its the best Ram Man custom.

    It is beautifully done, but it looks "off" between the Motuc figures.
    Great work though!

    I'm not liking this at all. He's to big and does not fit the anatomy of MOTUC. There's an old saying that goes if your fist is bigger than your head your probably retarded. No sir, I don't like it.

    It's really nice looking, and the craftsmanship is miles beyond anything that I could ever dream of producing.
    I can see where he should be bulkier than an average MOTUC figure, but this just seems way too tall. The height makes it look like he's is a different, larger scale than MOTUC. It's like he's in scale with one of those 200X roto cast figures.

    Overall it's nice. As a couple others have said, it is a little too big, and I do agree with one person who said that is kind of resembles a super hero squad figure.

    However, it's still great in many ways. I wouldn't mind Mattel taking a few queues from this for the official Ram-Man when he comes out.

    Since he will probably require mostly new tooling anyway, I wouldn't mind if they made him bigger (but not quite this big) than the rest of the figures. Even if that ends up making him a bit more expensive (in the $25 to $30 range), I would be cool with that.

    That's what I said on Poe's site...well, actually I said it looked like a Playskool action figure, but same thing.

    Yeah, it's quality work, but it looks more like it's from a toddler MOTU line.

    I think it looks really great! However I think it's too big and the face doesn't match the cross sell art. I have yet to see that big brawny face in figure form.

    Here's I envision Ram Man...

    If Mattel could make it look like that, but more in scale to the rest of the figures then it would be a perfect release.

    That change in size makes all the difference. He looks much much better. I still don't like the orange and red, but I'm secure in knowing Ram will be in his toy colors when he comes out.

    Amaro is definitely super-talented, but I really hope the 4H go a different direction.

    (I know they won't do him that massive, so that concern is neither here nor there.)

    I do appreciate the separated legs and the 200x details throughout, but the cartoony face and oversized nature are a bit off the mark for me.
