Great podcast overall.
But I do have to agree with those stating that more things like the 200X Whiplash head should happen in this line.
In the podcast, Scott talks about the approach of taking 200X characters (i.e. The Faceless One, Carnivus, and the 200X version of Marzo) and translating them into the line. Additionally he speaks about how characters like King Randor, Queen Marlena, and the Sorceress could warrant 2nd figures in ths line based on their 200X appearance since their outfits were very different.
In my opinion, there are at least a few characters whose overall 200X redeisgns to their faces and bodies are just as drastic of a change as the looks of the Sorceress, Randor, etc. Whiplash does come to mind as being one such case. If anything, I would have preferred a full separate 200X-inspired figure than just a head, but I'm glad to have the head over nothing. An even more drastic example is Buzz-Off. His whole head and body design are almost completely different than his 80s counterpart.
I can understand not making a "200X" Skeletor, Mer-Man, or Trap-Jaw because those characters were largely based on the same rough designs in 200X and just really updated with a lot of detail. But Buzz-Off, for example, was almost a complete redesign. And I think a "Classics" version of him would be nice to see. The approach to translating him into this line should be similar to taking the likes of Carnivus, the Faceless One, and Marzo, and translating them into this line. It's possible to take a character like Buzz-Off, scale back the "hyper anime detail", and come up with what a vintage figure would have theoretically looked like had they used that basic design for Buzz-Off in the 80s. The same goes for any charcter who could reasonably warrant at least a 2nd 200X-inspired head, even if we don't get a full 2nd figure.
Overall I am happy with classics, but there are a handful of characters that had (IMO) drastically different deisgns in 200X that I feel would warrant those versions being represented in this line.
