    The Official Nocturna Thread

    I was thinking about SDCC 2011 reveals and who the Galactic Protector would be...then my mind drifted to "how many times do they need to use parts and bucks before they break even or turn a profit on the investment".....then I thought of Bow's wrists and how one hand is posed to hold an arrow....and then I thought of Nocturna.

    I checked MGM's index and saw this guy had no entry, so here we go.



    How do we feel about the NA martial artist/archer in classics?

    Will he get 2 heads? One helmeted and one not.

    Is he a likely candidate for a reuse of Bow's hands?(another forum post on that topic is here http://www.he-man.org/forums/boards/...d.php?t=205228 )

    Should he still be sporting that sexy blue and purple camoflauge? Should we call it Etherian forest camo?

    I don't know much about his character, role in the series, bio, etc... so will a NA fan please help me out and share that info?

    heres his vintage cardback Bio-

    Martial arts warrior from Mida on planet primus.Has the ability to deliver a stunning side kick as he moves swiftly and silently to aid He-Man in his fight against evil.
    He was never my fave figure as a kid, but his 'Camo' outfit always made him stand out on the shelf!

    He could actually end up getting three heads - helmeted, and then a black haired head and a blond haired head, since he was colored with blond hair in the cartoon.

    Take a good look at Nocturna's face : it was clearly inspired by Jackie Chan !

    I quite liked his bright colors and his high-kick action feature...

    I don't think we'll see him before several years, though.

    Toyguru had said at some point that the only figures that had not been taken into account in the "roadmap" until 2017 were mostly the human NA figures...

    I'm all for getting Nocturna and hoping classics really expands on his background and gives him more character than the cartoon did!

    I'm liking NA more and more as I spend time on this site. I don't feel I gave them a fair deal when I was a kid.

    What I like about this guy is that the ball jointed wrists contribute both to having a bow, and being able to do "tiger claw" or "crane" poses or whatever would be fitting(I'll leave those distinctions to those who actually know martial arts). Well, being able to do those poses in theory.

    Thanks for posting that from his original bio Staff of Ka, he's beginning to seem more special forces to me now, technology + martial arts training, but that's just my take on it.

    It would be interesting to see how the 4H handle Nocturna in Classics, but I'm pretty sure Ninjor and Jitsu would beat him in less than 3 seconds.

    Nocturna is one of NA's most underrated characters!

    He would be so awesome in MOTUC! Seriously, he is like MOTU's version of the Metal Gear Cyborg Ninja!

    He could come equipped with his famous bow, two laser-katanas, and an unmasked second-head!



    C'mon Mattel! What are you waiting for?? Nocturna is a NINJA from another star-system! Plus he fights alongside He-Man! What's not to love?!?!
    Where are the rest of my New Adventures Classics figures?!?!?

    I think the blue and purple will be a nice color combination to add to the shelf

    Nocturna's color scheme is what makes him unique actually. That color scheme would probably look amazing. Also, this is a chance to get another 'ninja' type character. I always considered him to be like Storm Shadow (G.I. Joe).

    The 4H would absolutely nail this character. Also design could make the "pink" parts of him glow in the dark. Translucent, glow in the dark goggles...this figure would be amazing if brought to fruition.

    I just hope they keep him in mind for 2017 Collector's Choice.

    I agree.

    Storm Shadow is a good reference point... also, I always figured Nocturna to be a futuristic type ninja similar to the "Cyber-Foot" ninja's from TMNT 2003...
