    i would prefer zodak/he-ro boots on plundor- those would most closely resemble his on screen boots.

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

    Not exactly accurate. I mentioned some time ago that I would like a Nepthu character. I am not mainly a Filmation fan but I do like all things Egyptian, and that INCLUDES MYP/200X Sorceress.

    In regards to being upset about possibly missing out on somebody because tooling was wasted on something else, I would look at characters like Tytus & Megator as well as Gygor & Shadow Beast, and I do like the Shadow Beast. That said, the tooling for those figures easily surpasses the tooling dollars spent to make Nepthu.

    I can NOT argue here. MYP/200X King Hiss would be an awesome figure to own!

    I don't know--I think he looks fine (will have to customize some chest armor for him though). But, I'm happy with this guy--kinda surprised he got included before Masque though. I have a feeling now another Filmation figure to be revealed on Friday is going to be Hordak (with a Filmation Skeletor figure head thrown in). No, I'm not Bcrduke--so I don't have sources but, I did stay at a Holiday Inn last night

    This makes the most sense to me regarding Nepthu. The small investment in parts will allow them to invest more tooling into other more demanded figures.

    But if the bird had any articulation, it would be inaccurate to Filmation and would be a blasphemy to the sacred Filmation bible!

    Yeah, unlike some of the MYP characters I'd like to see, Filmation designs in general are very simplistic. I do agree that adding some eyeliner would make this character look much better.


    Quote Originally Posted by eurorko View Post

    That would be a shame IF Shakoti ended up being the only Filmation female. I really want an Ileena figure. Her design was very unique and IMO, one of the best looking females Filmation ever designed. That said, I am not interested in getting Celice simply because her exact design was used for Mira in the episode "Ordeal in the Darklands" before she was then reused(albeit with green skin) for the character of Nami in the episode "City Beneath the Sea."

    I'd also add the Enchantress to the list. She was also a very unique Filmation design.

    That honor goes to Cringer / Zoar

    Seriously, Nepthu is an awesome figure! I love the obscurity factor, and the amazing use of existing parts. Definitely gonna get me a couple of these!!

    Yeah, about the only good thing of having to buy three of this dud is that, once you take away the all-too-Egyptian ankh and pschent, the figure looks generic enough that he could be named "Kustum Fodd-Or". And it sports several elements that will make it a very good base for Filmation Garn (although maybe this means they may be releasing Filmation Garn soon).

    Ok...now...take off the head and add a different armor...this figure has a nice plain figure body that we can probably creat some very nice 'MIX and MATCH" with...may not be a total loss...and the bird and cross accessory are nice!

    Matty posted on their website a list of the Preview night reveals. Nepthu is not list or show on that page. Im sure if this was anything more that a joke and at the recent upraise in conversation about him, we would have been listed on the reveals page. I would honestly wait until the fan panel on friday before I call him an official figure. I think we getting to a point were we are to quick to fly into a tissy and not wait for a real answer. just IMO.

    My first images of Eternia predate Filmation since they consisted of the original (Frank Frazetta inspired) MOTU box art. I can imagine Frank Frazetta drawing an Egyptian type character like Nepthu in his sword & sorcery world, but not a pink bunny.

    My first images of Eternia predate Filmation too, but you know what? That version of MOTU was phased out very early on for the most part. And I want Plundor.

    He has been confirmed on their website in the Ask Matty section and pictures have been pouring in from dozens of fans on Facebook for hours. He is in their display case.

    I'd rather have this figure.
    wp9cee7b4f.jpg
    It's more accurate and looks evil.

    The MOTUC Nepthu's face is TERRIBLE. He looks like a helpful insurance agent, not a megalomaniac, dark stygian sorcerer. The bottom of his feet are not bare like they should be either.

    Putting aside the questionable character choice after the matty panel vote was announced, this thing on it's own, in my opinion, is a terrible figure, and not accurate to source material. It will rot on eBay land at perpetually under $25. (most likely less)

    Best use of this thing (if armbands are removable) is custom fodder.

    Moss Man. Other than his underwear, bracers and optional bandoleer, he's naked... Grizzlor is naked except for his boots, harness, armband and bracers.

    So you're speaking for all fans here? Vintage MOTU artwork was NEVER "phased out" even after Filmation arrived. Do you not see that it is the inspiration for Classics packaging today?

    Filmation MOTU never became the be all end all for myself or my friends. We all preferred the darker Frank Frazetta styled world of sword & sorcery we saw in the movie Fire and Ice and on MOTU box art like that of the vintage Castle Grayskull.

    Looney Tunes looking characters like Plundor didn't work for my friends or I back then, and I have no doubt if a pink bunny were used in any future MOTU based movie, it would be laughed out of the theater and the end of any future MOTU media.
