    This item doesn't appeal to me at all. I wouldn't take one if Mattel offered to ship me one for free.

    I'll definitely be buying a few of them.

    It's funny and a stand alone item that is not part of the MOTUC line or budget. I'm a fan of Robot Chicken, so I think it's cool.

    No way.

    And I feel personally insulted by the advertising:
    "A must-have for true MOTUC fans, Baby Skeletor™"
    Well, Iīm no true MOTUC fan in that case. And since this is NOT a MOTUC toy at all, I donīt know why they advertise it as a "must-have" for MOTUC fans in the first place?

    Or they mean it in the worst possible meaning of fan = fanatic. I love Robot Chicken, I know the sketch that this abomination is based on. And I like to laugh. But this is plain stupid.
    Positivity, folks!
    Letīs all agree to love MOTU enough to let others love MOTU, too!

    Nope. Too big and too expensive.
    Sadly, you can't divorce emotion from a toyline built on nostalgia.

    I think $35 is way too much for an item like this. If it was $20-$25, I would be more inclined to purchase it. That and if is around the same size as Orko/Kowl/Loo-kee.

    I voted No, but I also didn't originally get the Mo-Larr set. I MIGHT get this if it goes on super clearance and only then....

    Since when does Panthor double as a child potty sit?

    This thing is ugly- would not buy.

    Though I am curious as to what demographic Mattel was aiming for with this piece?

    I voted no, but I hate myself for wanting one. I'll probably hate myself more a year from now when they're three times that price on eBay. There's just no way I'm spending that money on the doll when I could use it on a figure I still need to complete my collection.

    Still...hokey crap like this really hits my sweet spot. I just can't help myself.

    That (of which I am both), and also people like myself who either like really corny novelty toys OR have a thing for twisted dolls, like Living Dead Dolls. Checks off every one of my boxes, except for the one where MOTUC product is way more important than anything else when I decide where my money is going. That $35 can buy me a figure, so the doll just ain't happening for me.

    Ah, that the genre I was looking for. I've seen novelty figures like these before, but wasn't sure on the terminology. I know they are popular (my comic book store carries quite of few vinyl things like these).

    Thanks.

    I voted no. No appeal for me. No interest. I wonder what the heck they were thinking......It's bad enough I guess that I collect toys, but i draw the line at dolls.

    I'm undecided. I'd like to pick one up but I may wait until there is a sale. I have a feeling there may be a few extra sitting around for months afterwards...

    Good luck. Mattel only made 9 of them. Super limited run!
