    Official MOTUC Artilla thread

    Well the "Roboto" of NA will hopefully get a classics figure at some point probably later then sooner, but how could they revamp this figure to make him a kick ass character that everyone wants. I was thinking of arming him to the T, sort of like Roboto 200x, making him more of "Weaponstronic", Garrling guns, bazokoo, rocket launchers, really give this guy a ton of heavy firepower guns, as well as guns coming out of his body. Ideas?

    I didn't care for this guy much because his original figure was pretty ugly, but he was really brought to life for me when I first watched the NA cartoon a few months ago. I loved that he was portrayed as a tough-as-nails, no nonsense drill sargeant type. He was refreshingly badass for one of the heroes. I definitely want a classics update of him.

    This is really a figure I didn't like in NA. Personally, I even prefer Vizar (who is one of the blandest figures out there in the NA line). I think Artilla looked frankly horrible. The face alone was an abomination. The weird, crooked legs were ugly too. The arms just looked like metal bars, and didn't fit the MOTU aesthetics at all.

    If they ever do an Artilla figure, I hope they redesign his look completely. He is clearly a character that SCREAMS for a redesign. If it's just a remake that stays true to the vintage toy version, I know I won't buy it.

    I definitely want an update of this character.

    I'd love for him to have a lot of interchangeable parts/limbs.

    If they make Rio Blast with pop-out parts, they can re-use them with Artilla/Weaponstronic.

    Artilla the figure looked like trash. However, I thought the design used on the cartoon was great - it was more anthropomorphic, and less looking like a walking microwave. In making an Artilla figure for MOTUC, they should based it off of the cartoon design.

    This guy is one of my least favourite NA characters. The vintage figure looked horrible but he did look better in the cartoon so I I hope they take a few liberties with this guy.

    I like Robots. Take the cartoon mix it with the figure and you'll get something cool at the hands of the 4H. Trouble is...if you think NA figures are never coming now, just wait until they announce Filmation rights.

    Mattel should base his look off the Animation model from Jetlag. Which they can do since they own the character.

    The animation model is much better looking than the figure. I would pick that one up in a heartbeat.
    Photog is here! thank you, Mattel!

    Now how about some mini-comics love (like Lodar, Geldor, Dakon......)? And Mermista?

    Artilla is from a planet of robots. I need to get some screencaps of that. He had to deal with bounty hunters from his homeworld in the NA episode "There's Gems in Them Hills".

    I guess in Classics, if Artilla does come from a planet of sentient robots, that would make him far more advanced than Roboto, who was built by Man-At-Arms.

    This is a difficult character to me. His toy of the 80's looks ass, but almost all of them did to me. The cartoon counterpart looks like a go-bot. I think the 4H have a challenge here. But creativity always makes for good designs.

    I'm probably in a minority judging by this thread - but I really liked/like the vintage Artilla figure - it just screamed trashy-80's style robot.

    But, if they do him (I hope sooner rather than later) they go with the Cartoon version (if they get the rights that is)

    Dang, Artilla definitely does not get very much love. After reviewing the way the character looks in the cartoon vs the figure, I agree that the cartoon version is probably the better way to go. I'd be really interested to see what "parts sharing" could be done with this guy. I have to think he's be a pretty unique tool. Which probably means he's not very likely to be made given his lack of popularity and high tooling needs.
