    Vac Metal Fist for Fisto!

    I always hated how he didn't have a shiny fist, like Jitsu's Karate chopping hand. Fans of shiny stuff, post here is you want Fisto's Fist to be Vac Metal.

    No thanks, I like his iron glove the way it is.
    Maybe Marzo as an archenemy was the biggest thing to happen to Mekaneck, but as far as Marzo was concerned...it was Tuesday.

    Nope, that was Jitsu's thing.

    My experiences with vac metal toys have not been good. The less we have of them the better trust me, even if its MOC the vac on the toys fall off.

    No way, the vintage one wasn't chromed and this one shouldn't be either.

    The vintage one should have been chromed, as should the Classics one.

    The fist is PERFECT as is, but an extra vac metal one would be cool.

    If anything, I wish they removed the large sword holder on his back. It's ugly and I'm not going to use that sword. The sword is a great inclusion (for my 200X collection - which is where it will go) but it doesn't suit Classics.

    Maybe the vac metal fist could have been an accessory?

    I like the fist as is cause i have this small hope that when they look to do Jitsu's hand, they'll be able to (hopefully!) implement some detail onto it like the staction.

    I think it's great as is. I like the dull, metal-iron look on Fisto. There's no need for him to be all polished up!
    200X fan? Classic fan? What does that mean? I'm a MotU fan!!!

    I'm so glad it wasn't. Twist-waist punch action feature + vac metal hand = unwanted battle damage.

    I agree. I hope that sword holder is removable, because it's going to look very out of place with his 80s style head and sword.

    No way.

    Vintage Fisto didn't have a vac-metalized fist.
    200X "Battle Fist" Fisto didn't have a vac-metalized fist.

    So, MOTUC Fisto shouldn't have it either.

    Vac-metal parts are too fragile. There are already too many QC issues as it is. We don't need to add more, in my opinion.

    I would like a vac metal fist, it would be awesome, although the original was not. If it's good enough for jitsu..

    If the fist is vac metal, his armor would have to be as well.....both or neither....and too much chrome is a tacky, IMO.

    I agree with this, I'd rather he didn't. I don't care if the 80s toy did or didn't as these are not the 80s toys and I don't want them to be just taller versions of what I have already had for 25 years. However vac metal just looks kinda cheap to me.

    Pass on the bling bling Fisto variant.

    He is a rough customer who wouldn't bother with the extra chrome polish on his gauntlet.

    MOTUC Hurricane Hordak's Vac Metallic Armor Was/Is/Forever Will Be a Mistake that should not be done again... Let's not repeat this mistake with Fisto and Jitsu... BTW Mattel should use a brighter shade of gold paint on their figs... The Gold they use is rather dull.
    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.

    No thanks! He's perfect the way he is, and I can't stand vac-metal in a line like this--I really think it cheapens the look of everything.

    I personally think that Vac-Metal cheapens the look of the figures. I hope it gets retired with Hurricane Hordak.
