    Mekaneck Metallic Silver He-Man boots or brown?

    I have never liked the metallic looking He-Man boots for Mekaneck. I'd like to see them colored brown like the 200X figure. Along with this, I think his loin cloth should be brown to match the boots. For the poll I've described them as Vikor boots because they are the improved version of the He-Man boots and I'm assuming Mattel will opt to use the Vikor boots from here on out.

    Wow, are you kidding? The metallic silver, the blue, the red, the goggles, the bright yellow mace... it's what made Mekaneck a favorite of mine back in the day! Some color choices aside, I thought the 2002 figure was one of the best reimaginings of a classic character that the 4H did for that era, but I've had my fingers crossed that when his time comes in MOTUC, that they'll go 100% retro and give Mekky that '80s sci-fi spacey look

    Silver boots and black loincloth. I thought the brown was boring...

    He killed that fox that painted himself silver from that old Bigs Bunny cartoon...

    THIS... 100% this!
    Mek was always one of my favorites, I'm hoping he comes sooner rather than later!

    Yeah, I don't mind silver boots for Mekaneck but I think the silver "He-Boots" look pretty dumb.

    I think that would look pretty decent. Metallic silver coloring on barbarian boots doesn't look right. Even as a kid in the 80's I never liked it so Nostalgia Goggles won't help.

    "Sci-Fi spacey" is fine with me but the metallic silver fur boots are wrong on so many levels.

    Brown boots are a bit too standard. Silver boots for sure even if they do look kind of weird with furry boots.

    If the He-Boots were light gray with a lighter gray/white trim I could deal with them. (Similar to vintage, but no gaudy silver fur)

    The only complaints I have about it are the green goggles (that's one of the things that nagged me about the 2002 Mekky.. shiny chrome goggles for MOTUC Mekaneck, por favor!), and I'd like the mace to be the same yellow it was in the original line. Otherwise... he rocks!

    I love this idea. Silver with black straps or, dark grey boots with silver straps would be ok to me too.
    Look for my designs on Deviant art. I am under Octobersdream. Will do commissions of anything, original to recreating any older line. Also needing POP stuff and some MoTU things aswell.

    Yeah, IF they used the new Vikor boots in a light gray with white trim I'd be much happier than metallic fur.

    I liked the green goggles because they provided a better contrast than the reflective chrome version.

    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

    Silver boots, silver boots - it's Mekaneck time for Classics.

    Yes! I remember very vividly the day I did something good (maybe a good grade on my report card or something) and my dad took me to K-Mart to get any He-Man figure I wanted. I had my heart set on Ram-Man, but when we arrived...

    What was this vision in blue and red and silver before me?

    I fell in love instantly. He was the greatest thing I'd ever seen, bright without being garish. The silver boots were so choice. Who's to say Eternia doesn't have silver beasts roaming around? I loved his reflective goggles and everything including that yellow mace.

    Love him!

    When Meck-A-Neck is made he should have the vintage look...he is not Snake Man-At-Arms and needs to be changed..no, he is perfect just as is...all other vintage toys had a really good either cardback or toy update, and M-A-N should receive the same....He should come just as he came back in the 80's like all the other vintage updates in Classics did. He was one of my favorites along with He-Man, Adam, Tri-Klops & Trap Jaw.

    I'd like to think that if Eternia did have silver beast, their fur wouldn't come across as a solid piece of highly reflective metal. Some dry brushing would help reduce the metallic glare GREATLY.

    I barely care. Voted vintage because I think it will be the most sense.

    Edit: I do care about Mekanek, I really want Mekanek, I want Mekanek more than Ramman.
    I just dont care about this issue.

    Keep the vintage boots but go all hi-tech on the rest of his outfit.

    Yes you do, you've just used a double negative!

    Well, thanks for voting. Every vote could make a difference if the 4H want to know our preferences on Mekaneck.

    Yeah keep him vintage though a card-back art paint app for a Classics Mekaneck would be pretty damn cool...
