    Any interest in a giant Zoar and Screeech?

    What’s the likelihood that we will get a release of Zoar and Screeech that is in a scale similar to the original line?

    When I was a kid I always thought they were supposed to be that size and frankly I want a Screeech that can carry Snout Spout off to his doom.

    Does anyone else want to see the hawks released in this size or am I a party of one?

    Honestly due to the weak claws and the pearch,,, I went through 3 Zoars and never had a screeech. Once broken I pretty much stopped using them.

    I really preffered the big birds, as they look like an actual THREAT! These little ones, even WITH rockets on the armor... ehhh... Nobody's scared of these things...

    That said, we have the little ones, I wouldn't buy them again.

    Mine always broke at the ankle where it meets the bigger part of the leg, and I think it was due to them having to be forced onto the perch!

    When Sorceress turned into Zoar in the FILMation cartoon she was the size of a normal falcon. So I say NO, lets just have the small ones that are in scale with the figures.

    No, I like falcons at scaled size. I prefer Talon Fighter as a big menacing bird.

    In the original toyline, I think the birds were supposed to be enormous. In two of the Kid Stuff Records, Man-At-Arms rode on his back and he had a 20' wingspan.

    I'm very happy with the sized birds we have.

    I do recall books with a giant Zoar though, and didn't Screeech carry off Cringer in the cartoon?

    If they make it…I will buy. I loved the idea that there were enormous birds on Eternia.

    I might buy giant Screetch, because a giant raptorial bird big enough to carry away a helpless Randor is pretty cool, but I wouldn't buy giant Zoar. It takes away from the iconic nature of that character if I had more than one, and the small one is more "realistic."

    They'd be cool for sure. But since we've already been given the birds, I'd rather see the tooling dollars go into something like the Talon Fighter.

    I honestly don't remember. I guess Screeech carrying Snout Spout off to his demise is just wishful thinking on my part.

    I wanted bigger birds originally. In fact I remember this coming up when Teela was originally shown. At that time I would have supported the idea. After they released two small birds my interest changed. I just don't see the point in them making large birds any more since we have the smaller more realistic sizes. My collection shelves are only so big after all.

    Nothing I want from what I can think. If they were presented the right way, I might would change my idea, but for now the ones we got are fine enough to me.

    Hmmmm...nah. I'm content with the birds in scale with the rest of the MOTUC figures as normal sized birds.

    I'm happy with what we got so far. I know when the Sorceress gets released, she will come with a falcon.

    I'm cool with the way things are now.

    I prefer the Zoar and Screeech that have already been released in MOTUC. I like the scale as is and would prefer tooling resources to go into some other release in MOTUC than have the giant size Zoar and Screeech.

    I'd like them! It's cool for those that set up their MOTUC toys in elaborate displays, but since I don't, scale means nothing to me. I've always been a huge Zoar & Screeech fan(pretty much any animal based character is a hit with me) and I'd love to see them in a larger size. I'd even be all for getting a large scale Orko but I know that idea would go over even less successfully with the fans than Zoar or Screech.

    As many people as there are that frowned on the idea, I'm positive they'd sell out if they were made. A whole lot of people complained about Optikk and he sold out. Some people don't know what they want until the fear of a sold out toy "forces" them to buy everything MOTUC on the 15th.

    Likelihood? Pretty slim, I think. That being said, I would love to see them, though, if their articulation was similar to the smaller versions (I'm not a fan of how some of Battle Cat's joints interact with the sculpt).

    Thankfully, I recently got a vintage Screeech in great shape, so he can hang out with the Classics figures.

    Definitely a great idea! - and that is why I have already bought the vintage Zoar and Screeech on eBay to display them with my MOTUC figures. They match MOTUC figures very well.
    In case a big version of the birds is released in MOTUC line I would buy them for sure. If they are not released, I have the vintage birds!
