    Icarius is flippin' awesome!
    He is definably one of the best figures with amazing details right up there with Bow.
    Removable Jetpack with adjustable wings, wing missiles which can be taken out, removable arm rocket launcher with separate rockets.
    Transparent adjustable visor, alternative helmetless head.
    A brand new updated crotch piece which allows him to sit (unlike Bow & King Hiss).
    This guy is seriously full of win!
    I can't wait to get him in hand

    I love the Sci-Fi look and think it'll go great with all the rest of the tech stuff from MOTU.
    Anyone who doesn't think NA fits in could take a better look at all the technology that MOTU has.
    Pretty much all the vehicles of MOTU are very technological advanced.
    And all those laserguns, heck even He-Man himself wears a "techno vest"

    I'm sooo glad to finally see more NA.
    There are 17 months between Optikk and Flipshot/Icarius
    so this 2nd NA character is way overdue.

    Icarius won't look out of place when displayed next to guys like Roboto or Sy-Klone...

    I never understood people who said they hated the sci-fi éléments of NA, although they were many of those same éléments in MOTU already...

    Design wise, guys like Multi-Bot, Dragstor or Blast-Attack could easily be in NA, while guys like Lizorr, Karatti, Staghorn or Tuskador could be in MOTU.

    Question about Icarius Design

    It looks to me like Icarius got a new sculpt for his feet, as his boots appear to have squared-off toes. The square is blue, and I've noticed the same on other figures from reviews and so forth. Does anyone know if the blue is there on purpose, or if it was just a poor paint app? It almost looks to me as if the paint was put there purposefully.

    These boots originally were on the Sy-Klone prototype and then they changed them. I believe the toes on Icarius are purposely meant to be blue.
