hopefully the tusks will be a LOT more subtle than the toy version, cartoon version looks almost OK, this is my ideal tusk scenario :

Now ideally we'd get both versions that are interchangeable but if we only get one then which version of Tuskador/Insyzor tusks do you want in MOTUC?
I hope he doesn't have the leaver for his action feature on the back of his helmet like we've had dials on other figures.
I'd also like the colour of the boots to be toned down like in the cartoon:
and a cartoon accurate helmetless head:

I think that he should come with both pairs and be interchangeable. other than his gun he doesnt come with much so he might as well be packed with both sets of tusks to use
While the cartoon tusks are better for hooking another action figure in them for play value, I think the action figure tusks look more aesthetically interesting, with the more winding twists to them. However, I agree that, ideally, he should come with both tusks. I'd also like the non helmeted head to be included if they can't make the headgear simply removable. And I'm also with you on toning down the color of the boots a little like the cartoon did. They're still a lighter blue than the rest of the blue on his body, but the contrast isn't so jarring.

I prefer the toy version of the tusks, and yes to the extra "Peter Venkman" head!

I like the more intereesting (in my opinion) toy-tusks, but both would be swell. Not at the cost of a helmetless head, though. I think the NA guys need those fo' sho.'
What the heck is the deal with this guy anyhow? He's truly bizarre. I can't wait for his Bio... (Maybe there are wooly mammoth type creatures on his planet...)
MOTUC Most Wanted: Skeleteen, Prince Keldor, Captain Randor, The Great Black Wizard, Lady Slither, Spirit, Tuvar, Baddra, Cursed Marzo, and for the love of Grayskull, ODIPHUS!!!
I prefer the cartoon version with Tusks that can pierce instead of grab,
and the more toned down colors on the boots.
I had the toy version as a kid and hated it. It was a nightmare to play with.

it's funny, my vote pushed TOY over Cartoon by a vote (at this time) but really I prefer the TOon version, but think it should be toy to keep the vintage accuracy.
Either way it's going to be hideous.

I really like both of them and would be happy with either style. For the sake of the Poll, I voted Cartoon version because of the simple, clean shape and thos would less likely throw off his balance.
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 voted for the cartoon version even though I loved the toy version as a kid. The cartoon version is much more streamlined and would probably look better. It is clear that the toy's tusks were designed to accomodate the action feature. I would love to see this guy with the extra head and perhaps an interchangeable "cracked" tusk to give him some additional pizazz!

"We have a Ram-Man"
would like very much for a unhelmeted head with na characters.
Toy version all the way. Everything down to the reddish skintone.
His head/helmet/armor should all be one removable piece that sits on his shoulders. The tusks should be removable from the armor. Helmetless cartoon head included. I'd prefer reddish alien skintone but white is cool too. Just won't match his arms.
I would like it if the tusks are removable.

Since the MOTUC figures don't have an action feature, I vote for the toon version.
But really, why not both? They can be interchangeable, stored on his back, and even used as swords!
I am really bummed that Tusky didn't win the vote...... all three choices really deserved to win.
I was like asking us to choose between Teela, Man-At-Arms, and Ram Man.....
Where are the rest of my New Adventures Classics figures?!?!?

MOTUC NEEDS more TROLLANS !!!
I prefer the cartoon version. I also hope to get a second helmetless head.
I'm going to go with the cartoon version.

Toy version, but I'd be okay with interchangeable tusks- really hope the helmetless head is included!

I voted cartoon, but really I would like something in between...
Take a look at my deviantart. http://kaassouffle.deviantart.com/gallery/
The toy look is overall much more inviting and vibrant so I went with that. Looking at the pics above reminds me just what magic the 4H have worked on the NA characters who would otherwise lack any visual appeal.
Grayskull needs its Cardboard Spacesuit MOTUCized
Voice your support in the Cardboard Spacesuit/Robot thread:
Toy version all the way! They're far more interesting and will really stand out in figure form imo.
