    Official Icarius Arrival and Talkback Thread

    He just arrived. Joints are pretty sturdy, just a little looseness that you can fix with a swab of a Q Tip. Feels a bit lighter than the others. But I like him and he's awesome!

    But as has been stated, be careful with the visor. It can pop off if moved back far enough.

    I love an all inclusive canon!

    It is, but Mattel packaged him with the "shield" part attached to other arm. It can go on either. If someone picks up an extra, he can have them on BOTH arms!

    It's a beautiful figure

    I need more flight stands. I'd had Hordak on one (to mimic the 200X appearance), Marzo on one, and Scareglow. I took Hordak off and put The Faceless One on it.

    But Flipshot DEFINITELY needs one!!

    True. Only reason I had him like this. I might play around with it though.

    It is indeed a beautiful figure. So much articulation. He's a great realization in the Classics world. I have quite a few stands that I used for those same figures, and the Enforcers, but lately, for space, I have everyone standing firmly on the shelf. But right you are, my friend, Flipshot does DEFINITELY need one!

    Woah...the backpack is on different ways! Firesoullove has his the opposite of Jon-O. PixelDan said you couldn't put it on upside down because of the way the plug is designed. That's curious, but interesting to see!

    WHOA! How'd you do that Firesoullove? I tried, but it's not made to hold. Did you just not push the peg in all the way?

    Hm...mine holds up and down... upside down you can't plug in complete but it holds strong and it is not fallen off. I can move the figure and its not falling off. On the last pic you can see that its fit also very good upside down and I think it looks way better (sorry for my english)

    Looks great! I need more flight stands....
    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

    Your English is great! I always understand you. Good to know it holds in the other position. Thank you for sharing. I will have to try with mine.

    Mattycollector.com. They're in the "Matty's Toy Chest" area. At this point in time, they're unavailable.

    Same here. I have six flight stands that I bought from Matty. Sy-Klone, Stratos, Buzz-Off, and Marzo occupy four of them. Flipshot will be joining the the heroic warriors in one as well.

    I'm pretty sure I'll be putting the Sorceress in one too. That's all my flight stands.

    I need more. Mattel needs to hurry up and make them available again.

    He looks great! i don't get mine until Friday because even though they made the shipping label on the 12th they didn't bother to actually send him anywhere until the 17th so he just started his journey.

    The pics are great! I really can't wait to get this figure!!!

    Oh…and just checked…he's "almost gone". I guess whoever it was that speculated Icarius would hang around forever is somehow wrong? Wow! Who'd have thought!?
    200X fan? Classic fan? What does that mean? I'm a MotU fan!!!

    Got mine today; solid figure all-around.

    ...Although, the rubber Underoos are a bit weird.

    Icarius is an awesome figure. I thought he would be from the first time we saw him. I too need to get some flight stands that looks absolutely awesome posed like that.

    I'm normally against pure sci-fi characters, such as Optikk, but I'm starting to turn around with figures like Icarius. The playability on him in incredible with the removable wings, arm missiles, working visor, Val Kiler head, and the new soft armor covering his hips and upper torso. I can see him with Roboto, He-Ro, the warrior from another future, and of course Marlena.
