    "Battleground" variant speculation / discussion

    I was looking at my photo of the 3 Robotos, and it got me thinking, "Battle Ground (200X) Roboto" anyone?!

    Robotos bio already states that he upgraded himself, but maybe he upgrades himself again? OR, his body is destroyed in battle, but Man-At-Arms manages to save Robotos CPU, and rebuilds him as a 200X war machine!!

    IMO, Roboto is one of the more boring figures in the Vintage and Classic lines, but 200X Roboto is AMAZINGLY cool looking!! He's seriously a great figure!! We (well, "I") really need a 200X Roboto in the Classics line...

    They probably wouldn't do it, but I would buy it if they did!
    I'm hoping for a Disco Skeletor for the next subscription exclusive! Fully flocked!

    There really isn't much difference except for the shoulder guards and the modern head. Mattel had their chance to include that.......I'm not giving them $20 more for that.
    Keep The "Classicized" 200x Heads in MOTUC!

    Mattel should go from the MYP model rather than the 200X toy.

    They don't seem to want to draw influence from MYP at all though - if there's a toy or staction-based alternative, they'll go for it before even considering MYP.

    It's only the MYP-only stuff that they're going there for.

    If they want to refresh Roboto, I'd rather them make a mini-comic repaint than half-ass a WMD Roboto. Do it right or give someone else the slot like Stinkor or Clamp Champ.

    There are some things unique to MYP that never appeared in the 200X toyline like Battle Armor Royals, Captain Randor, Faceless One, Count Marzo and Chief Carnivus. The MYP version of Rattlor and Roboto are two cartoon versions that differ from the original 200X toys.

    he needs a variant i hate the first one....the big CRACK in his chest did not help with that

    YES! I Support a Battleground Roboto!
    The only new tools would be the Torso Armor (With shoulder guns) and Robocop-esque head. and repaint the lower legs in metallic fuschia
    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.

    I think he'd need newly tooled legs!
    200X Roboto has massive lower legs and feet/boots. They're part of his appeal to me.

    In a Normal World I'd agree with you, but after seeing the MYP elements in BG Evil Lyn become a Teela Repaint once again... I decided to not ask for the legs since those could break the budget after asking for a second head and shoulder canon/torso extra armor that he should've in the first place.

    I"d love to see a 200X influenced Roboto down the road, since I never really liked the vintage design and its classic counterpart. Battle Ground Roboto sounds very interesting.

    Roboto deserves this. He wasn't just a simple upgrade and I think the motuc figure suffers from not having some of the myp influence. I never really liked the vintage head sculpt and would like a ready for war Roboto.

    IMHO there are significant differences between the designs that would require some new tooling for us to get a BG Roboto in MOTUC line. Alot of his existing parts can be reused and left as is or just repainted but he definitely needs:
    - New Boots
    - New Arm Attachments
    - New Shoulder Armory (it could just slide/clip on like a cape)
    - New Head
    TOP 5 MOTUC MUST HAVES:
    1. Mermista
    2. Angella
    3. 200X Sorceress
    4. Snake Armor He-man & She-ra (See here for Hunter Knight's custom) 2-Pack
    5. Madame Razz w Broom

    Ah man, you don't have to ask me twice. I'd buy a WMD/MYP/200X (or whatever you wanna call it) Roboto in an instant!

    Nice background story Scott

    MGM, those screen-shots are great!

    You have no idea how much i'd want a WMD Roboto to be a part of this line sometime down the track. The fact Roboto's taller, prepped for battle and looks awesome would make for a wicked figure i think. But i'm biased

    Me, too. I like Roboto's 200X version much more than the current MotUC one. Roboto would be much cooler in MotUC with 200X features.

    Excellent idea mate.

    Someone did a mock up a while ago. I'll see if I can find it

    I am definitely down with this idea of a BG Roboto. His MYP version is distinct enough for an upgrade.

    Yep, I'm all for it. I wouldn't have cared if they had just added the armor plate and a second head with the original release, but now I think they could make a whole new figure. The new head and chest plate would be a must, of course, but then they could add the new arm attachements (200X versions) and maybe throw in some more weapons from the toon (like the shoulder mounted guns and some other arm weapons, since the 200X one only came with two). A few changes in color and maybe some remolded boots (using the style of the boots, not necessarily the size) and I think they'll have a great second version of Roboto!

    I think there's got to be a cut off on the "Battleground" figures. I think the "Battleground" should be for the major figures. We still need a "Battleground" He-man and Skeletor.

    Benedict Hel suggested calling this Weapons of Mass Destruction Roboto when I brought up MYP Roboto as a possible non-repaint refresh down the line.

    A properly assembled and neatly painted original one would be better first.

    So long as BGR isn't a cheap repaint, I'm game. The MOTUC Roboto was badly done.
