    I like Spinwit! I hope we get him. He would look really cool alongside NA He-Man and Flipshot!

    He's one of my favorite NA figures too. I think if his colors were toned down just a BIT from 90's neon he'd be perfect.

    I hope this guy gets made from the outlook he looks to be fairly easy without a lot of major retooling , heck even a retooled/repainted Dawg-O-Tor head minus the long hair would do him.

    As a kid Spinwit was one of my favourite characters and I always assumed he was one of the major NA characters. I'm a bit sad that his appearance in Classics is looking very unlikely.

    I think for me (and ignoring Sagitar) Spinwit is just after Hydron & Icarius in importance. I seem to remember seeing more of him than anyone else in the show. So I'd like him before the end of MOTUC.

    THANK YOU for reviving this thread!!!!! We NEED to show Mattel that we WANT these figures!!!!!!!!

    Spinwit is definitely an A-list NA figure! He NEEDS to happen - and the sooner, the better!

    The 4H could deliver one of the best figures in the entire line with this design!!!





    Mattel, bring on SPINWIT already!!
    Where are the rest of my New Adventures Classics figures?!?!?

    Very True. Spinwit would a terrific motuc if handled properly.
    Hoping he's part of the wrap-up plan

    "Where hope seems lost..."
    "I was summoned on the future..."
    "A hero shall emerge to protect Eternia..."

    "The most powerful MOVIE in the universe" (fingers crossed)

    The thing about the Galactic Protectors, most of them can be made with very little new tooling. Just new heads and accessories. I've already planned out recipes to make these guys if they never get produced by Mattel. But most of these guys, for the exception of Tuskador and Artilla, are easy to produce.

    Spinwit is one of the easiest! Hope he gets made.

    This is so true.

    I've seen customs around the internet that use existing MOTUC parts to wonderful effect.

    Just another reason for Mattel to get on the ball!

    He would require a few new pieces, but I can see the Trap Jaw boots (I know, way overused, but really close to what we see here), and the He-Ro "loincloth" would pass muster if the belt was part of the chest armor. THe armor, head and forearms are the only new body pieces really needed, and then the turbo wings as accessories.

    Pretty awesome! Jun-Yor! Thanks for sharing!

    In a way, I hope they go with the colors from the cartoon, but I'll take a Spinwit, either way.
    We need to let our new friends at Super 7 know that many of us are ALL IN COLLECTORS. We don't want products that are impossible for the average collector to have access to! If there is a He-man product, I want to buy it. Please no chases or con-only exclusives.

    Make your voice heard! We DO want Snake Mountain!

    Trap Jaw boots would probably fit Tuskador better; maybe Blast Attack for Spinwit with the TJ feet, if there has to be some of the boot reused.

    He can share forearms with NA He-Man, and I feel that Sy-Klone's loincloth is a better fit. For the armor, just reuse Dawg-o-tor's, but instead of the Horde Symbol/vehicle icon, replace it with the gearbox/wires in the plug in spot.

    Spinwit is my most wanted vintage NA figure at this point. I just hope they do something more creative than reusing the MEF crotch for him.

    I actually hope they use they use his figure colors on his vest as the cartoon version is really just flipshots. I want a hybrid of the 2

    I can't believe I never chimed in here, as he's one of the Galactic Guardians I've been waiting quite some time for...
    The good news is, should he come this late in the game he shouldn't suffer from bloated armor syndrome the way Hydron did.
    As for color scheme, I'm actually quite a fan of the classic toy look, but think he would turn out good either way the Horsemen decide to paint him.
    I would definitely like to see an unhelmeted head packed in with this guy.

    Definitely the cartoon colours for this guy. The figure was extremely garish in very bad way typical of the late 80's.
