    I'm looking forward to getting Nepthu. Too bad Nepthu wasn't in my Club Eternia instead of the spoiler figure.

    Happy for those that like him, but I think Nepthu was a terrible choice for MOTUC. He looks more like a DC Comics fringe character than a MOTU.

    One of the most underwhelming figures of this entire line.

    And he looks too happy to be a bad guy.

    I agree the figure selection of Nepthu is somewhat odd, but he is a cool looking figure.

    Nepthu was a one of villain like others I have added in a poll recently.

    Out of say Jarvan, Gamesmaster, Anghast, Toy Maker, Rago, & Danavas would you have preferred one of these guys over Nepthu?

    They maybe obscure but still they had no control from Skeletor & still a few may look good along side Plundor.

    I just wish 4H did a better job on translating him. He looks nothing like his Filmation counterpart. I love the character and I also love his new bio, so I will have to overlook the horrible design choices they made.

    They can't all be the best figure... a figure like this guy makes the others look better and I appreciate that. LOL ...then again; I love B-movies and the underdog.

    This does apply to other Filmation character designs though. Icer and especially Batros looks like they could be those fake monster type villains from Scooby Doo and Plundor looks A LOT like Bugs Bunny.

    I can see your point of Nepthu looking like a fringe DC character but for me, a mummy themed DC looking character fits into my Sword & Sorcery display a lot better than a lavender Looney Tunes bunny.

    I'm going to give Nepthu some gold weapons from the new WP. I also scored an extra green perch for his falcon in a trade awhile back. I'm looking forward to him, even in such a month jam-packed with awesomeness.
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    Strangely enough I'm looking forward to Nepthu this month, I've been so pumped for Mantenna, Dactus and the Troopers, I forgot we're getting him too.

    He is listed as "Almost Gone", but still has roughly 2,312 figures left in stock.

    I don't think the selection of Nepthu was all that odd actually. He is a memorable character from the series. Most Filmation fans remember and liked him actually. Along with others like Plundor, Deimos and Tyrella, Celice, Ileena, Lord Tyran and Lady Valtira, Queen Elmora, etc...

    It's really the design choices that kind of threw cold water on this figure. Nepthu's Filmation Model design, much like Frosta's, didn't make it in the translation from artwork to Classics figure.

    ...I got him yesterday, and I think he's awesome! Gave him the curvy "kriss"-style dagger from the 200X Castle Grayskull, makes a great sacrificial knife! He looks like a charming cult-leader type...

    I really love him! Great are the little details they gave him without destroying the original design. Only not so good thing are his wrong painted eyes and the missing bird stand we saw at the cons.

    Nepthu is now marked as sold out.

    On a side note, can you please update me on how many Weapons Paks are left?

    Anyone else's crystal Zoar very yellowish? Mine looks like it's old and sun damaged instead of brand new toy.

    If you want a trick to try and get rid of the yellowing, put it in a clear glass bowl or mug and submerse it in hydrogen peroxide. Shake or stir it every so often and keep your eyes on it. After a day or so, it should be crystal clear without hurting the plastic. This works really well with sunburnt or 'yellowed' toy plastics like model kits or figures.

    Got him.
    VERY bland.


    Things that bother me the most are his shoulder- and chest armor that got reduced to a collar, the textureless hat and the missing paint aps in his face, especially the eyes, to make him look more sinister. He´s actually not too bad of a figure for a good-guys custom, with added armor and a few weapons. As is, he´s really boring. Sorry for all that do like him, not my cup of tea. And I am hiding him right behind Strobo, Shokoti and Gygor.

    Funny enough, I´d gladly take ALL those figures except Plundor. I actually would prefer them over some of the vintage characters left.
    Positivity, folks!
    Let´s all agree to love MOTU enough to let others love MOTU, too!

    Man he's so bland and boring looking. He looks like he belonged to another line and not MOTUC. Remember when the first figures showed up on ebay before SDCC and people said "this must be a bad custom and no way did the 4H create this figure"? I still feel about him that way. He is not one bit better in person. He is even worse than Spector... The 4H failed miserable on this one. They got the armor all wrong and the eyes of course. It seems he even lost details in comparison with his cartoon incarnation. I could go on with this rant forever.

    Bottom line: I don't like him.
    Awesome sticker included!

    Could someone take a pic of Nepthu wearing Light Hopes Cape? I'd like to see that.

    Personally, I like the figure, but I think its funny that most of the posts here for Nepthu are negative or indifferent, but we were told from an official source at Mattel that Nepthu was highly fan demanded! Surely that information was honest and accurate.

    Maybe the dozen threads asking for him, and the thousands of posts andf request can be found in the He-Man.org archives.
    Made it through Cyber Monday with everything I wanted, well, almost.

    I actually like the figure, though I agree his face should be much more menacing. Like....at all menacing. But I like him.

    One thing for me is I was out of the game for a bit, and went back to rebuild my collection. When I was seeing all of the reveals, characters like this always made me mad. But coming back to collecting after some time off and buying tons of figures at once, well I wasn't hoping for someone else or expecting someone or something better so I like the figure more than I think I would have.

    On the whole, I think the filmation sub could have been a much cooler cast of characters, and being a filmation fan I would have been ticked to see that reveal. But, life unfolding for me as it did, I like all of those figures quite a bit.

    The concept behind nepthu is good and fits perfectly with MOTU, but as mentioned by many he's a character that was not well executed in motuc.
    A stactionesque's version would have probably permitted the horsemen to express their genius and passion for egyptians-gods/ sort of magic beings because their Gothripolis line is a masterpiece.

    Its a shame, but nephtu belongs to MOTU and I'd love to see him in the DC comics/ future media

    look at this! its so cool!!
