    I don't think that is official, it looks like a custom if you ask me. That Ankh is a bit sloppy. I will have to wait and see on this one...

    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.
    In the episode, Nepthu turned the falcon into a diamond. It couldn't move. It was just perched on a stand.

    Plain, but not terrible. Only thing I could ask from him is a more...malevolent face. Guy looks downright amiable. The way he's holding that ankh I would be expecting it to be made of chocolate and he was sharing a piece with me. LOVE the bird, though! I'll wait to see what his story is, but if it's boring I'll repurpose him and use that bird elsewhere 'cause it's awesome!

    I have to assume this was Scott and the Horseman making that impossible choice to include someone with almost no tooling to justify someone amazing. With all the talk of "no wasted slots", the entire Filmation subscription concept was either in the works last summer and "changes could not be made", or this guy simply the only way we could get the other 5.

    Still, Nepthu joins Cy-Chop and King He-man in the "nah, I just don't want them on my shelf" bin of unwanted toys.

    I maintain that I want every figure Mattel can throw at us... I want everybody. This guy, however, is a nobody.
    My MOTU Classics Wish:

    The 2015 Subscription - C'mon people, we can do this! If you have any ability to sub, if you were going to purchase elsewhere, please, do it for the rest of us just one more time, so we can complete the vintage MOTU and POP toylines and finish on a high note!

    Ah man Scott can definitely stop trying to keep secrets. In the internet age nothing stays hidden.

    I can't believe it...if this is real, it is completely underwhelming! The face is WRONG! Nepthu was really handsome in a sinister way, this guy looks like he's sedated. Looks like a Ken Doll...This HAS to be a red herring or a custom.

    One of my least favorite characters, BUT they can't all be my favorite. lol. Glad to at least be adding one more figure to this awesome line. I dread the day it is all over
    Out of the night that covers me,
    Black as the pit from pole to pole,
    I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.

    It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll,
    I am the master of my fate,
    I am the captain of my soul.

    boring figure with no overall demand and no "org" backing up history!
    If we'll miss huntara, lizard man at the end of the road please remind yourself that you have nepthu instead!

    It is good he is revealed now, the heat will die down by Friday.
    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.

    I agree, but it's definitely legit...it's not a custom. It's also from China, not many customizers there, just the usual factory leaked products. Not horrible, just a boring Z list character.

    Thank heavens for being able to combine subs. If I had to pay £35 and an additional £11+ customs charge for this piece of **** I would be mortified. All the Filmation characters they could have made... 30 years backlog of fan demand... so many Filmation episodes. They had six slots and this is the best they could come up with. We all knew it was coming but that doesn't make it any easier!

    I still think this could be a custom though.. the fact that the image is shared on something called 'Adult Collector Customs' might be the massive giveaway here. Mind you, the eBay listing from Hong Kong could be the original source....

    if you check his other listing he has images of the final versions of Castaspella, Mantenna, Shapoopie, an Batros paint passes.

    ...they all look VERY nice! Also... anyone else notice that the Mantenna mouth is removable????

    hehe... makes me wonder if a filmation mouth pack in is comin... lol

    I hope the headpiece is removable, he needs a better face sculpt. They completely ruined the face! And the recycled Bow boots are bad...Nepthu had cool footgear. If you are going to make a non-wanted figure, at LEAST put more into the sculpting!

    I think that was already stated as to help with the switching of his eyes. No 2nd mouth

    I hope this guy has no DOS stock, that would actually be THE saving grace regarding him. Then resellers will have an improved chance to move a generally unwanted figure, imo...based upon the reality of a general lack of want regarding this character compared to multiple other Filmation characters, just my opinion, nothing more.

    I have a feeling Nepthu was shuffled into the main Club Eternia sub.
    A Want List of Sorts: Angella, Sssqueeze, Blast Attack, Multi-Bot, Peekablue, Veena, Calix, Evilseed, Mara, Point Dread & The Talon Fighter... and all the other POP & NA characters.

    I actually think he looks pretty good. I do wish he had heavier eyeliner like in the pics from the cartoon, and like sirsniffy said, a more malevolently handsome face.
