Stratos was one of the figures i never intended on getting because I didn't like him. However, for some reason after seeing the TRU version I decided I wanted him and his regular version too. I've been watching the original series, just got the complete set , and found myself wondering what he'd look like under there? I do however prefer the MYP voice, which brings me to what I thought he'd look like. While in our library I found this staring at me and I thought of course, Stratos!
What you think he'd look like? I know we'll never get one, but what would you like?

Ideas like these make me wonder what "ultimate MOTU toyline" really means.
MOTUC is supposed to be the definitive, all-inclusive MOTU toyline, isnīt it?
So when sales keep being great, an accessory set within the next few years is mandatory!
It should include snap-on armor for Trap Jaws weapons arm based on the 200x design, several helmetless heads and heads with different facial expressions, new palace guard headsculpts, weapons and tools as seen in various media (minus Filmation, "as they donīt have the rights"...) and so on.
Basically all those goodies fans are asking for from day one.
After all, what less can a company do to earn their money than delivering what the consumer asks for?
I imagine him having really big eagle-eyes

...so I believe Stratos somewhat resembles Beast-Man when he takes his aviator cap off at night. I think the whole eagle-eye thing works well too. He should have bird-like eyes as a flier. Just don't ask me what genetic quirk is responsible for the sock feet

Oooh. Helmetless Evil-Lyn would be awesome.

Stratos without helmet from MVCreations comic. I like how he has a bird-inspired look to his eyes and hair.
It'd be interesting to get characters like Stratos, Mekaneck, Zodac and others without their helmets. Might be a good idea for variant figures someday.
Your best bet is probably to find a cutomizer to cast the Stratos head and sculpt the eyes/top of the head over the sanded down helmet. There are some great customizers that do this sort of thing. Personally I'm not that interested in getting a Stratos variant but would buy it anyway. Something about the 200x characterization on Stratos (especially his voice in the toon) just made me even less interested in him than I was before.
The more I think abou it, the more I think they SHOULD do a head pack.
It'd cost too much, and it would have to replace a new figure... but I'd rather have ONE figure/monthly slot that I could care less about, then see 20 varients I care nothing about
