    Fang Man speculation thread

    Pretty pointless now since he comes out in 2 months and will probably get his bio next month, but I noticed that there wasn't a thread for ol' Fangface. All we can speculate on is his bio.

    I'm going to guess that his real name might be something like Iggwanus Fangalor and possibly related to Lizard Man.
    Top Ten MOTUC wants: Sagitar, Sssqueeze, Great Black Wizard, Fang-or, Dragstor, Peekablue, Skeletor's Skeleton Warriors, Despara, Evil Seed (all era) w/Odiphus, Illumina w/Sleetah

    Maybe he eats Stratos at the 2nd Ultimate Battleground.

    Incidentally, Stratos tastes like chicken.
    It is spelled "Crita", not "Critta". Misspell her name and Crita will knock the "T" out of you!

    Also...get her into the line!

    I speculate he'll be blue, come with 3 Filmation accessories & be released in Q1 of 2013...oh wait..

    Only thing I'd really like out of his bio is that he is a real reptile, not a spell, armor, disease or whatever.

    Now who's gonna make the 'Fang-Man style' parody? I nominate Toy Guru.

    The figure's cartoony style and iconic accessories will make this one of the most vintage figures yet! So happy to see the line continue on for so long.

    Best line I've read on this site in WEEKS...

    But do you wax him instead of plucking?

    I hope the bio doesn't make him a Snake Man descendant, like Kobra Khan. And actually talks about Fang Man and not what Skeletor did in the episode "The Time Corridor".

    Too bad he got maybe the goofiest head sculpt of the entire line.
    I completely agree. I go back to my one gripe. And believe me, i love filmation. BUT for these "non" 200X characters the process Should have been "make them 200x, then take BOTH PICTURES at and asses the situation. They could have easily Captured the cool vintage look And takin out a little bit of the cartoony look Without making people mad. Just my opinion. But this guy standing next to the new Dragon man Looks like a fool....

    Same here

    I think he looks awesome, deadly, and I'm really excited to own him.

    If he hadn't been in the cartoon and, instead, had been one of the original 30th Anniversary figures, I bet everyone would consider him a favorite.

    I see the point of him being on the cartoony side, but I think once he's in hand people will like him more. I saw him at SDCC and he fit in well. He doesn't translate as well in pics, he has a few more details than you see. But his face is a touch Disney-esque. He's a lizard guy, Draego Man is a dragon, not the same thing. I can see both sides of the coin here.

    Yeah, he has to be cartoonish because he's from the cartoon

    But also because he is a MOTU figure / character!

    They are ALL a bit cartoonish. That's what makes them cool.

    Cartoony = cool.

    Good. That's settled.



    But in all seriousness jzachery is right.
    Fang Man does look good in person - he looks pretty ferocious, which is great. The figure is sculpted well and the accessories are cool.

    People complaining about a cartoon character looking too cartoony?

    Next it'll be complaints about He-Man looking too "barbarian."

    Totally dig his looks. It should have been even more cartoony in my opinion!

    For toy collectors at large, there's a noticeable difference between the figures that feature a more sophisticated mature look (Draego, Fisto, Teela) and those which are more on the cartoony side (Clawful, Fang Man, Leech). It's an obvious, immediately noticeable disparity.

    If you're a huge fan of the way Filmation looks, obviously you won't have a problem with it.

    But MotU's true roots are NOT in cartoons, but in a toy line. That's just a simple fact.

    Iīm not the biggest FILMATION design fan. I hate what they did to some of the characters. Taking away details, make them totally interchangeable, no asymmetry as a kid i didnīt mind that much, now i do and for a FILMATION character who only had one apperance his MOTUC looks GREAT!

    The FOUR HORSEMEN did a great job.

    They gave his outfit more details, while in the cartoon he was a bit dump looking(and in a cool way) they managed to make him look fierce, dangerous and at the same time he resembles his FILMATION counterpart.

    Iīm a fan!

    And they did the same with Octavia, so i really have faith in them when it comes to the FILMATION characters(except FILMATION King Randor....but that wasnīt their fault, the people who wanted him got what they wanted, iīm just not a pleased but thatīs another story and doesnīt belong in Fang Mans thread!).

    I think he looks really great. Exactly that "in-between" level Filmation characters should look. I like how MOTUC makes it seems "real" people and "cartoons" are interacting. Not like in Roger Rabbit, but like in a great show with bad costumes. Like the original Star Trek.

    Any word on if it's a new torso or not? Because if it's the standard size with that hunch and neck added, Fang Man will look freakin' huge.

    Fang Man is awesome....super excited for this guy, seeing as we should've had him 25 years ago...
    Make Filmation Clawful. Come on, he's like a totally different character!

    Really looking forward to this guy, surprised Toyguru did a video of Snakeface and not one of Jitsu and Fangman

    Not everything has to look like a Spawn figure. I actually like that some of the characters in the line have a cartoony look to them. It adds diversity IMO.

    I think Fang Man looks awesome! Could have used a bit more detail in the head, but outside of that, his entire upper torso is completely new sculpting/parts!
