    Add me as a fan of Nepthu. I'm looking forward to getting him, hopefully in the Filmation sub!

    In one of the Huntara/Masque/orsomeoneelse before Nepthu threads i voted against Nepthu and said i haven´t seen his episode.

    I just looked it up and i have to confess i have seen it as a kid i clearly remembered the sand into glass lesson but i could´t remember Nepthu himself.

    And his design is okay but the character himself is not very likable and his motives are weird…

    I´m really not sure about this guy.

    I don't really care about Nepthu. He's too much of a direct Egyptian cultural rip-off for my taste with such characteristic traits as the ankh and the pschent.



    One my argue that the ankh is a relatively simple geometric shape (blend of a cross and a circle), so it's plausible for a similar shape to appear in some other alien culture. But then, it's almost certain it wouldn't carry the same religious meaning as a symbol/amulet of eternal life that the Egyptians arbitrarily associated with it. However, the pschent is such a characteristic headgear that arose out of a unique combination of cultural and geographic conditions (a double crown that represents the unification of Upper and Lower Egypt, with a compound shape that merges the previous crowns of each, the hedjet and the deshret) that, in this case, it seems totally implausible for a similar item to develop independently in some other culture. A character sporting both symbols at the same time, then, looks too obviously Egyptian, and thus out of place on what's supposed to be another planet, where no Egypt or anything like it is supposed to exist.




    Nepthu aside, I really want the sand demons. They're among the most characteristic Filmation beasts, and under different names and color schemes were featured in several episodes. I think an army-builder 2-pack of sand demon + rock demon (brownish and grayish repaints of the same mold) would totally rock (pun intended).

    looks legit to me.

    aside from the bird, he looks rather bland. sure, he's true to source material but ... disappointing for me.

    That seems almost like a "kitbash" by a good customizer.
    I actually don't like the bird. If it's a bird...make it have at least SOME sort of articulation, not a slab of clear plastic.

    For what he is, he's done well, but plain looking figure + no nostalgic connection = unwanted.
    It's a shame they have to pick dull characters like this because they're easy tools rather than people like Razz or Dylamug.

    Matches the rumors. Looks legit. Has sensible accessories. I'll take the Vegas odds on this one that it's real. And even though my Filmation sub was never acknowledged/cancelled by DR, I'm glad that I don't have to buy this figure now.

    check out the sellers other items, no reveals, just cool stuff.
    Ask not for whom MOTUC is made, it's made for thee.

    If you have to disclaimer your like, then you don't really like it.

    He's a bit bland, imo. I do like diamond Zoar, though.

    I like it well enough, here's the thing though, just like the anniversary line blind buying seems to not pay off, we have to vote on characters like huntara and masque (masque shopuld have been OBVIOUS since we are getting shokoti) it's moves like ttossing up between Scorpia and Octavia is different, but EVERYONE that wanted Shokoti, wanted Masque....why would nephtu and possibly plundor enter his mind on wanted figures over other characters? Like I said it's him taking advantage of the perk of being brand manager, but at this late stage in the line it hurts a lot more than it did before.

    I like that he resembles Arnold Vosloo! lol looks legit witht he accessories.

    Not a fan of the reveal but defo has filmation vibe about him and I like the accessories he comes with
    Making sure the vintage line is fully reproduced in the classics line
