    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!

    The first thing I thought of when I saw this figure was Ace McCloud from Centurions.

    Flipshot does have that Ace McCloud (Centurions)/Major Hawk Masterson (Captain Power) vibe.

    Heck, Hydron (Max Ray), Flipshot (Ace McCloud) and arguably Kayo (Jake Rockwell) have the Centurions thing going on.

    He DOES look like Val Kilmer... Look! He DOES Use Bow's FEET! (Not the boot) New Biceps? Here I was thinking that they might reuse Hssss...
    He's on my TOP 4 favorite Reveals
    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.

    ICARIUS a.k.a. FLIPSHOT is awesome! He definitely stands out as one of the best reveals of SDCC!

    I'm really excited about getting him. My favorite part is the two heads; the visor flips up on the helmeted version, and you can also have him helmetless, or "out-of-battle".

    I'd like to think that the other Galactic Protectors will be this cool, but Flipshot was the 80's superstar of that faction, in my opinion.

    I agree, he does (for now) look a little bit out of place in the line, but I am sure once he is in hand my thought will change, or at least I hope. He is indeed cool, and he won't look so out of place when we get more of his friends.

    I love Icarius/Flipshot.
    He's one of my absolute favorite characters and it's a blast seeing him in MOTUC finally.
    I could do without the pink visor on the helmet, but it doesn't bother me to much.
    Fictional characters are just that. Fictional. They have no personality or free will of their own.
    Writers and editors mold them to their own wants and needs.
    All we as the audience and fans can do is pick and choose our favorite interpretation and ignore the rest.

    I agree I loved Flipshot in the cartoon him and Spinwit were my favorite Guardians. I think the figure came out amazing he looks like a stud. However I do agree I wish they would've went with his shaggy hair from the cartoon!

    I'm glad to finally see a Galactic Protector. He looks good and he does fit with the classics figures.

    I can't wait to see the other NA figures and now they have the rights to Mara and the other un-produced characters, so the sky's the limit. (No pun on Flipshot)
    We survived the long night.... MOTU Forever!

    He looks amazing. Such an improvement too. If you like sci-fi at all you have to dig this figure. Looking forward to the next new adventures figure. I'm hoping for slushhead and I hope we can put our own liquid in his helmet.

    His original toy had that too.



    I think Staff Of Ka's theory is correct, the glove is there to protect his hand when he fires his rocket launcher.

    That fleshtone painted glove looks a bit odd though. I hope they change that to the proper bare hand sculpt for the finished figure.

    He looks pretty great! He's going to look even better toting around one of those small gray Weapons Rack laser pistols in his bare hand! He looks like he needs a laser pistol!

    I love this guy, especially his jetpack. The way they did his head is pretty cool too, one helmet with moving visor(yay!) one non helmet.

    He's a cool looking guy and I like the look his tech brings to the MOTUC table
    Ask not for whom MOTUC is made, it's made for thee.

    If you have to disclaimer your like, then you don't really like it.
