    Looking at his other auctions... Batros' only accessory is a repainted Spikor club? Man, they are really cheaping out on this Filmation line.
    On plus side, Mantenna looks absolutely incredible. I guess they have to cheap out on some figs to make others awesome.
    Shame we can't have our cake and eat it when it comes to tooling.

    I think "human" characters are pretty boring, anyway. But I honestly don't mind having him.

    For a figure no one asked for (seriously, not a single person requested him before Brian hinted at him and then he was trademarked), he's not bad...and his bird looks sweet. It does suck it may mean not getting Huntara or Mask (for example).

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!
    Agreed on the face. He has "happy eyes". They should be narrower, with a lower brow to look kind of squinty, like Filmation. For his hat, it would be nice to see the green wider around the orange, oval hat part...and the white, draping part to...you know...drape!









    To be honest, I think more people would have liked Egyptian, 200X King Hiss, who could have been made with a lot of existing parts.

    Meh, I'm about as excited for this as I was for Carnivus, Faceless One, and a few others. I don't hate it, but really don't understand why Scott thought this was a character anyone wanted.

    I believe Scott mentioned previously the mouth is removable to allow us to swap the eyes better. I think he said it on a walk through with Pixel Dan.

    The pics of the other figures are great. I find it hard to believe people would pay $80 for any of these though. Especially Nepthu!

    He looks alright o me. I don't mind getting him. I think he is in the main sub as well. Scott said the Filmation sub would include one off-the-wall character and I think that character is Plundor.

    I hate wasting my money and things like this just make my mind up that a sub is just not for me. When I get this in my sub it's going straight on ebay (if I can sell it). There's just no place for that in my collection.

    If Mantenna was delayed so that he could ship with Nepthu, that will help ease the pain when the parcel arrives in the mail. Honestly I like adding new characters into my collection and I love the look of that crystal Zoar. Oddly my wife really wants a Plundor figure in my collection so if he is revealed it would be a good thing for me.

    Raise your hands if you did not see this coming....

    Yeah, I didn't think so.

    The ankh looks worse that what I had hoped it to look....I was hoping if they did make him, he'd be a bit more....spectacular.... with all the Egyptian elements they could have utilized. There are so many Filmation characters I want more....Negator for one, Masque....

    ...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
    Scott showed the mouth being removable before, so you can change the eyes easier....supposedly.
    Recent....Eldor
    Coming....Arrow, Tung Lashor & Bow

    I feel angry, frustrated and helpless What a piece of junk. We knew he would be coming but at least there was this tiny bit of hope that the 4H would somehow turn him into an awesome figure, but this is just such a boring and plain design. Especially the face sculpt is horrible and worse than the cartoon design. It doesn't capture the character.
    It's one of the worst figures ever. All of this wouldn't be all that bad if the line was doing better and more slots were available. But the fact we have to choose between Masque and Huntara but definitely are getting this piece of junk is just unacceptable!
    Awesome sticker included!

    Going over old ground here... but the reason we have this guy is because the Filmation sub was devised before we had the roadmap change and the alterations so that 2014 and 2015 were "heavy hitters only"

    The Filmation sub is therefore designed to have some heavy hitters and some less wanted figures... just as the main sub years 2011, 2012 and 2013 were.

    Could he have been shunted out of the sub in favour of somebody else? Well Scott says not because it would have taken too long, they already had moved on to making 2014 figures and presumably his low cost tooling helps pay for some of the more complecated figures ahead such as Extendar, Gwildor and Sagitar.

    I never wanted him myself, but maybe he will grow on me. Like mould.

    I can see what could be used for Filmation Hordak as new Biceps....

    And the face doesn't look nearly evil enough....looks like a bad guy who is misunderstood....never mind the fact He-Man basically offed him because of being evil....

    He looks like Robert Z'Dar. Really horrible face. I think there is one person at 4H who is sculpting these terrible faces...Frosta, NA He-Man, Marzo, Clamp Champ, etc. Whichever 4H member is doing these faces needs to just make body parts because the faces he sculpts are horrible, just awful. I don't usually rage at the sculpts, but this was one of my anticipated figures and it came out really awful.

    I am so disappointed in this!

    I was expecting Nepthu and the Crystal bird. Still, it looks even more boring than what I had imagined.... Can we have real fan favourites now?

    It would make sense, given that Scott has alluded that the Filmation sub sales were okay, ie. underperformed. Given the widespread disdain for this character, if he were to be in the Filmation sub and remain on sale for days instead of hours, it wouldn't bode well for any possible Filmation sub.
