    MOTUC Mantenna- which buck?

    Do you want a slimmer buck on Mantenna or the regular, bulkier male one?

    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.

    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.

    I want the upper half to be like the action figure. Also, toy line eyes instead of staction eyes.

    I don't think the two choices were sufficient for Mantenna's case... The vintage toy has a buff buck with unique tooling. I hope they give him the same treatment they gave Leech. I picked bulky body.

    Both

    Regular, bulky body is preferable with slender legs, an upper muscular body with slender toned legs.

    Frankly I want as much uniformity as possible in as much as a buck is concerned. I'm not saying I want them all to use the same parts or sculpt, just that even if Mantenna got a unique sculpted top, that it basically be the same buck like the rest of the unique sculpts. Frankly the "tight suit" top on King Hisss kinda dissapointed me in that I thought it would be a unique sculpt, but if it made it cheaper and therefore feasible to do a better figure, great.

    Do the same For Mantenna. I kinda hope that is what was done with Leech.

    Mind you I thought this question was more important as for the legs. Because He should have the four legs, but I dont want/always hated the single molded dual legs on Mantenna. I'd rather just two legs than that again.

    But then again I dont want a centaur. I just cant think of a way to do two sets of legs that will work.

    I'm ready to be wowed by teh 4H, and if anyone can do it, and cares enough to do it right, it's them. But I have no idea what will work. I guess if the legs are unnatturally colse to each other with one set in front and one in back.

    I just dont know. Maybe if they are thin unique sculpts they will fit together better.

    I say slimmer buck. He's based on a praying mantis. They are very sleek and slender. I think ultra-buff Mantenna would be odd. A slimmer buck would also help with the multiple legs situation (doesn't take up as much shelf space) and improved poseability. Some figures have a hard time moving as is because they're a bit too beefy. Especially when the armour goes on them.

    Mantenna's abdomen needs to be much slender then the current male bucks in the MOTUC line. He already needs alot of new tooling if they are going to do him justice with 4 legs. I really hope they base this new buck on the staction.
    TOP 5 MOTUC MUST HAVES:
    1. Mermista
    2. Angella
    3. 200X Sorceress
    4. Snake Armor He-man & She-ra (See here for Hunter Knight's custom) 2-Pack
    5. Madame Razz w Broom

    Slimmer please, I like figures to have a more unique look and not all be the same. Makes them seem more realistic. Mantennas personality does not suit a buff muscley body. I wouldn't be suprised if the classics Mantenna turns out to be just a taller version of the 80s toy though.

    Slimmer buck for sure. Another character that should definitely be uniquely tooled without doubt.

    I hope he's done to look like the vintage figure, but with his four legs separated.
