    Filmation Shadow Beast?

    A repaint/variant of the Shadow Beast in purple or dark blue. Maybe with different and more accessories than the previous release. It could include a giant bone weapon, turkey leg for Beastman, and a Bushtail with green pear-shaped fruits.

    Would you buy it?

    Cool. But interesting. You don't accept a green spacesuit Marlena because it was white in the cartoon, but a miscolored Shadow Beast is fine. Interesting indeed.

    I like the interpretation, and like it better. The Shadowbeast in the cartoon was a dark color. I don't like the green Marlena. White would be better to me.

    YES please.

    i remember ToyGuru once said that Shadow Beasts were brown (in the cartoons), but come on, anyone can see that their color was a blend of dark purple and brown and gray...?

    It's a very particular shade of purple... subdued and muted. It's easy to mistake it for a number of darker colors, but pure chocolate brown? i don't think so.

    we need a Filmation-colored Shadow Beast.

    no. the sculpt and colour matches more than enough for me. i'd like a filmation tan he-man, but again, the one I have is fine, no need for paint change variants in my collection unless it is a major difference and doesn't take up a monthly slot. (ie put it in the stores)

    i think maybe in 2-3 years time when they are starting to refresh/rerelease the bigger name figures again, that a recoloured rerelease might be nice, but not before then.

    No please.

    What totally bugs me with Filmation is the color choice for monsters and beasts. While I am okay with yellow gorillas and green tigers, I much prefer brown monsters over purple ones.
    Plus, I already have 2 expensive Shadow Beasts standing in my layout. I donīt want to buy a straight repaint in a strange color.
    Positivity, folks!
    Letīs all agree to love MOTU enough to let others love MOTU, too!

    ^Exactly.

    I'm not suggesting changing the sculpt in anyway (it's beautiful as is). Just adding some different accessories (or not). I also feel going from an earthy brown to a fantasy purple is a major change. It'd be the same difference as seeing a purple bear opposed to a brown one.

    I'm also thinking that if Matty had filmation rights at the time the first one came out, it would've already been purple...

    I'd like a 200X Shadowbeast... The one Released WAS Filmation Shadowbeast with a slightly darker color.
    FINALLY!! GLIMMER IS IN MY SHELF!! Now I need a Crita!! Crita is to Mara what Evil Lyn is to Teela. If we ARE getting Mara, then we NEED Crita.

    Would you want the same SB in purple or blue?

    the existing Shadow Beast is basically the filmation version as it is
    a better variant would be one in a darker paint job with a 200x head, to show the other breed of shadow beasts

    It doesn't bother me. But I guess they could do a variant for those who do.

    none for me thanks
    Man lives in the sunlit world of what he believes to be reality.
    But...there is, unseen by most, an underworld, a place that is just as real,
    but not as brightly lit... a darkside.

    I would certainly not be against a re-fresh of sorts for this idea a few years down the line. I have three Shadow Beasts currently hanging out with Marzo, but it might be fun to get a variation to add diversity. I want MOTUC to be evergreen and this could be a cost-effective way to push that. Sure, there are few other characters that could use that base body that I would like to see first, but if this were to fall outside the sub, I see no reason to be against it on principle, especially if there are fans that would enjoy it.
