    Kewl! One of the few Beast Man threads out there!

    Going from the back of the Alcala mini comics, I always thought that Beast Man should be 6.5" instead of 6". His arms would be longer than his shorter legs...more gorilla-like.

    In short; a five-foot-five orangutan can still rip your arms off.

    To me, that's Beastman. The bad guy answer to Marvel's Wolverine. He's not the biggest guy in the Universe - but his size is deceptive and he'll tear your head off if you dare to approach him without due caution.

    I'll go so far as to say that MOTUC Beasty is my favourite incarnation. Better than Filmation, better than the mini-comics, and better than the 'roided up hunchback from 2002.

    I thin k he looks a bit shorter because he is apelike. He was busy picking up bananas during the ergonomics lecture a t Snake mountain...

    I do wish he was a little taller. I always envisioned him as being similar to Sabretooth from the X-Men. Really big and beast like, but ultra quick and agile.

    Motuc Beastman still is one of my favorite figures in the entire line. The sculpting and colors on him are so good to me.

    I've actually got my Beastman posed with Evil Lyn right now. She's stroking his cheek, and he's got his hand around her leg.

    Evil Lyn: "Go get em' Beastman."

    Sorry, it's a phone pic so the quality isn't the best.

    I've always thought Beast Man was too small. He looks cool but I've felt a lil underwhelmed because of it.

    I miss the "'roided up hunchback from 2002".

    He was baws.

    Hmm, I'd probably settle for a Battleground Beastman with 200X colours, shinguards, a bone handled whip and an ecto eel.

    ZOMG, shall we start a thread for it!?!?

    Yes, I think something should be done about Beatman. He should be at the very least as tall as the other figures.

    He looks very good, but the fact is a bit smaller than the others makes him look a bit off...

    i still have the same issue of feeling beast man is to small. when you pose him with the hunch & bent knees he is way small. he looks whimpy.
    he needs to be beefier. i'd like a bestman variant.

    200x inspired head, long loin cloth, extra armor, big muscular arms & bigger buck. he could be battle ground beastman.
    i can put the other beastman on displayed with keldor.

    He's a bit small, but I like the figure a lot! I would really love an army builder of red beastmen for Gygor (or Beast Man, as in the DC comics) to boss around! Also, Red Beast, from the earliest concept art.

    Got that Toyguru? Red Beast AND red (colored) beast men!!!!
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    I would have thought Gygor's beast men would have a bit more variety to them than just being different coloured versions of Beastman. Different animal heads etc.

    Also, I'm 100% sure that any Beastman variant we do get would use the exact same base buck, kylun. Just take a look at BG Evil-Lyn for an example. She still has the same Teela dress.

    Well, if anyone is unhappy with their "too small" Beast Man, I'll be happy to take him off your hands. : )

    He may be small, but he still gets the job done.

    I'll have to check mine when I get home. I thought they mentioned in RGD at some point that his difference in height was caused by his hunched over sculpt...
    All caught up on figures...now what

    Beast-Man sort of looks better being short and stock as opposed to huge. After all Gorilla's a short than humans but far, far stronger. Grizzlor however was dipicted his mini comic as being much larger than avergage human height. Going by how tall He-Man is supposed to be (6'6") Grizzlor would be about 9 - 10ft tall, whereas Beast-Man could be 5'9" including hunched shoulders.

    I think there has been some discussion about the Demo-Man Buck being larger than normal, if so, I'll be putting Beast Mans head and accessories on him and painting him

    I actually like that Beast Man is a bit smaller, just like the original figure. I always thought that was a nice touch.

    I always felt that the best redesign the 4H did for 200X was Beast Man.

    I loved his larger scale.

    If Mattel does design a larger buck , I'd love a 200x variant of Beast Man.

    For the Classics figure he should be a little smaller, like the vintage figures and the show. But I agree with the sentiments about the MYP Beastman. He truly was a 'beast,' and was possibly my favorite character in the show. I'd love to see a 200x inspired Beastman, Whiplash and Clawful that used a larger buck.

    Yup. Beastman was hunched over in the mini comics, usually standing behind Skeletor, like a bodyguard.
