    Nice review. I can't wait for my Saurod to arrive. Definitely one of my favorite figures in the line, too.

    I love the details on him. A+.

    I think he turned out great. I never liked the vintage one as he didn't seem to fit in all that well I thought as he looked so different and somewhat scrawny next to other MOTU figures. This one is great though and fits in fine. The only thing that I can't decide is if I want him along with my NA Mutants (since he fits that theme to me) or the Snake Men since he's got that reptilian look. And yeah I know his bio says he's pretty anti-snake man but they need some boosting in their ranks and he fits in ok with them.
    Right or wrong, buying a sub tells Mattel you want more MOTUC figures. Not buying does tells them you don't. Don't let MOTUC end early because you might not like their marketing strategy! Plus polls show you won't regret subbing!

    One of the true fan minority - happy MOTU fans!

    He looks pretty sweet. I can't wait to put him up on my shelf with the rest of the baddies.

    Shame they made him less unique looking here and just another character with exactly the same build as almost everyone else but still looks nice.

    Mine comes today, so I don't have to wait too much longer. All the details are amazing, and I think he's one of the best figures in the line.

    Comparison Time there really shows what i was sure about - his helmet was a lot lower, closer to his head, on the original toy which I think was what was bugging me about his headsculpt - I haven't seen the film in aaaages but I'm assuming his helmet is more Darth Vader proportions in that, hence why I haven't seen much of an outcry about it? (or just no one cares about Saurod that much). Anyway review was fine, sorry, yeah, fine.

    I think the tail-like appendage that's sticking out of his helmet symbolizes his back switch/trigger to work his sparks.

    Love, LOVE, this figure. Hate the bio.

    Gotta say, though, really annoyed by the scale. I was expecting, like many, that his buck would be based off of Lizard Man. Now, I am fine with them using the standard buck, but with the new tooled legs, he towers over Blade. That's just plain wrong.

    As a stand alone figure, this is an A+++.

    As part of the line, it's an A- at best. Maybe even just a B+ cuz of the scaling issues. It really bugs me. Not Blast Attak without removable limbs or Rio Blast disaster annoyed, but annoyed none the less.
    TOP WANTS:

    SONGSTER, LODAR, EVIL ROBOT, SAGITAR, HAWKE, UNCLE MONTORK & DREE-ELLE, TUVAR, BADDHRA, KARG

    I wasn't interested in this guy when I first saw him but I think I'm going to have to get one now, he does look great.

    That's how I feel about him. Great figure but it feels like having a regular buck sized Ram man to me to have Saurod this big and out of scale.

    In the movie his body was smaller and his head/helmet bigger with a clear reptilian neck showing...therefore the figure itself does look like he stepped straight out of the movie. They did a great job on this one.

    If he were thinner he would look as if he stepped straight out of the movie. The figure looks like a body builder dressed as Saurod.

    This is "my Mosquitor" - the vintage figure that I loved the most from childhood. I could not be happier with what I'm seeing of him thus far and simply can't wait to have him in-hand.
    Happily invading Castle Grayskull with hippos is my true hobby.

    Cheers for that, I could have Googled it I suppose but I sort of wanted someone else to verify things, if that makes sense.
