    Nepthu Arrival Thread.

    He's a nicely done figure but a bit on the plain side.

    Ah. Thank you for the pic. He is very plain looking. However, I have a funny feeling I'm going to end up liking him quite a lot when I receive mine in a week or so.

    The classics buck is so well sculpted and executed that very plain figures end up being some of my favorites. Guys like He-Man, Mekaneck, Batros, Icer, etc.

    I dunno. We'll see.

    This figure is growing on me. It helps that I like the episode.
    Hey, if you want to wallow in the negative, go nuts. Sure, things aren’t absolutely perfect, and people passionate about a property can get all keyed up about things. But I don’t collect toys to be miserable. So I’d rather think about the things that do excite me

    I think he'd look great with some Carnivus armor.

    The problem is he looks very little like he did in the episode. He looks like a good guy -- totally unthreatening.
    WTB:
    Loose: Sorceress, Whiplash
    MOC w/ mailers: Whiplash

    Honestly the only thing left that I want is a great Entrapta!

    He's growing on me slowly. I will add a little gold paint/trim on him in various places. Also may try to find an ASP to glue to his headpiece. Gonna trick this figure out!

    I'll be buying an extra from BBTS for MOSC after I do the guyliner on my loose one. But it'll have to be next month....I have no toy budget left other than for MP Bluestreak this month....

    I personally don't see a whole lot plain about those guys, or Nepthu....I mean he could have used more sculpted detail like hieroglyphs or something, but my gripe is him not having the guyliner....

    Mek, He-Man and Icer are among my top 10 ranked figures in my collection.

    I had plans to customize him completely, but he's actually really nice in hand, other than his head, he's very Vikor-ish. The blues on him are painted really nice, the loin cloth is very flexible. I think he really just needed a better head sculpt and weapons.

    It looks like the door to door ank salesman forgot to put on pants this morning and showed up in his tighty-whities and a neck tie around his waist.

    I'm not looking forward to him at all...I'll be turning him into a pit fighter or something.

    He's the Egyptian version of Dudley Do-Right. Did they not make him evil looking to be PC? The world is crumbling to mediocrity.

    I'm just wondering, what the hell is the orange thing growing on his head?

    A prime candidate for swappable hands, I never understood why Mattel never explored this option.....so many figures could have been made much cooler if you could either display them with open hands, spell hands, closed fists, or weapon holding hands.... Make the heads swappable when most look funny when swapped, but leave the one thing that would have made this line that much cooler....hands.

    They're regular dudes using the plain human buck. The only thing differentiating He-Man, Mekaneck, Nepthu, or even someone like Icer or Batros, is generally a new head and chest armor.

    They're "plain" when compared with the likes of Mantenna, Rattlor, Whiplash, Leech, Kobra Khan, Snake Face, etc.

    You'll note I didn't call them bad figures, nor did I use "plain" as a pejorative. In this case it's a compliment. The basic motuc buck is a masterpiece, and the simple (plain) designs of He-Man, Mekaneck, Icer, Batros, etc, are iconic. They're all some of my favorite figures in the line. Particularly Mekaneck. I love his colors.

    Same here. Icer and Batros are two of my top 3 figures this year. I love them more than I do Ram Man. In point of fact, Batros is my favorite figure this year so far, and I wasn't expecting that. Although I'm expecting Mantenna to possibly replace him.

    I plan to paint in the eye shadow he's supposed to have, so I'll somewhat reserve judgement until then. I filled in some of the white of Clawful's eyes with black and it did wonders for him, so who knows what it may do for this guy.

    One thing that kind of surprises me about the hatred of this guy though, wasn't the Filmation episode he's from one of the better ones? I guess that's pretty subjective, and I only recall it vaguely (did it involve Teela and Evil Lynn teaming up?), but I thought it was relatively well done, and he was a decent villain.

    I'm tempted to take to his face with a fine Sharpie pen.

    Nepthu is a major character in my new "Spector Chronicles" story. Super Captain Nepthu Man. Can't wait to get him.

    I think a "Pharoh" in Masters line is a great idea for a character...but he was such a unintereting version....but anyone fix his eyes yet with "Guyliner" ? I think it might help him...I might try that if I decide to keep him.

    Did they understand that he was a villain when he was sculpted? He looks very friendly.
    By the ancients!!!
