    The Official Lieutenant Flipshot Thread - Icarius



    "I was born ready!"

    That was Lieutenant Flipshot's boastful, cocky catchphrase throughout the NA cartoon. Along with Captain Hydron, Flipshot is the co-pilot and first mate of the Starship Eternia and is the comedic foil to the usually more stoic Captain Hydron.

    While his partner is more water-centric, Flipshot is an aerial character with his jetpack. His action feature is also aerial--he flips into enemies. Even his international name, Icarus is an aerial reference.

    I am not much of a fan of NA but my guess is Flipshot will be the Galactic Protector we get this year.

    He'd be a welcome addition to my MOTUC cabinet, as Optikk needs a Protector to feud with.

    Hate the second look, but love the second jetpack.
    Looking at Flipshot, he'd require a lot of new parts
    Old parts:
    Hssss Biceps
    Normal Torso and Shoulders
    Normal Human hands
    Normal thighs
    Bow Feet

    New Parts:
    Head(s)
    Armor
    Arms
    Boots
    Crotch
    Jetpack
    Rocket Launcher
    FINALLY!! GLIMMER IS IN MY SHELF!! Now I need a Crita!! Crita is to Mara what Evil Lyn is to Teela. If we ARE getting Mara, then we NEED Crita.

    I'd love a Flipshot, one of my favorite characters. Nice amount of humour to him. Can't wait to see him in MOTUC.

    Icarius was one of my favourites when I was a kid.
    He still is.

    I never understood though, why so many people attached the Jetpack upside down (like on the very first picture of this thread).

    It should be attached like this:
    Press down on dragon's head. It will bite off your frickin' fingers !!!

    Flipshot is one of the NA characters I hope to see in MOTUC sooner rather than later.

    I thought it was upside down! I don't have the original figure anymore, so I couldn't check myself.

    I want Flipshot to be the next NA character! I like him better than Hydron.
    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

    Much like Hydron, I think Flipshot should come with tons of accessories. Flightpacks, multiple lasers and guns. I think this guy should be packed with so much stuff we won't know where to put it all!

    I don't think he would come with much. An unhelmeted head, missiles and a jetpack.

    Jack Olester needs to come to these shindigs. Maybe he can drop some background information or character insights or influences. I'll let him know about my unofficial "NA Week" in chat.

    Now this guy was a favorite! Had this one when I was a kid, and it's a great figure. Granted, his main firing weapons is just...giant missiles, but the overall figure looks awesome. I'd love it if they designed a new weapon to go along with his missiles.

    As for the second version...I remember seeing it when I was young, but didn't know that was Flipshot! I probably wouldn't have used him as Flipshot either. Cool design, though! Just...strange colors. Would look so much better in his original blue!

    Very much looking forward to him! Only thing that worries me is the crotch peice there; doesn't look like the legs will be able to move forward all that much, and I'd like to put him in flying poses. I don't see why they need to attach the crotch peice under the crotch when they could just leave it open, like with Sy-Klone. He can pull off great flying poses! I hope Flipshot isn't too restricted.

    Val Kilmer!

    I love that they incorporated Emiliano's design elements like the glass on the Visor.


    It's a shame that Flipshot is going to get so much negativity or be ignored because of his status as an NA character.

    He is great. I have no nostalgia feelings for the NA cartoon or its toys as I was to old for them. Hated the toys on the toy shelves.

    But Optikk and Icarius are 2 of the best figures that look awesome in the motuc style.

    I cant wait for the rest of NA!

    I wish Snout Spout was more like Icarius/ Flipshot

    I have to admit that I'm a little disappointed in his non-helmeted head. I rather prefer the cartoon design of him, since that was the character I really ended up liking - the wise-cracking hotshot pilot with the longer brown hair. This guy looks like he needs to eat some prunes.

    I think he looks amazing. My expectations for non-Space Mutant NA characters was low, but this has completely changed my mind. He has a cool Ace McCloud thing going on which doesn't hurt either.

    The Classics version is a dramatic improvement over the original toy. I just personally don't think he fits very well with the rest of the line. I think Optikk was a better fit.

    That being said, he is a great looking figure.
    I'm hoping for a Disco Skeletor for the next subscription exclusive! Fully flocked!
