    Ninjor: Those feet have to go!

    I'm more of a purist when it comes to the classics line looking more like the originals. However, If and when they get to Ninjor they must NOT use the claw feet. The guy is clearly a humanoid ninja, why does he have monster feet to begin with.

    I'm sorry if there is already a thread about Ninjor but I just had to get this off my chest.

    I agree - he would look much better with the furry boots instead. Make them red with black straps!

    I really don't think Mattel will do this however, because it wouldn't be faithful to the vintage figure.

    To me Ninjor has always been a demonic ninja-creature Skeletor pulled from another Dimension, so the claw feet are not just fine for me, they are an essential part of the character!

    I concur! It's pretty much what makes the character interesting in my book.
    He's not just a mere ninja - he's a demon.

    I gotta say - if Ninjor is just a human Ninja, I'd be a little bummed. I think the clawed feet would look much better than just boots, but I wouldn't mind something like the feet being clawed, but the ankles wrapped. That might look really cool.

    He definitely needs "inhuman" feet, but I'm long tired of those Skelly feet.

    And has been said ad nauseam, they match the cardback art for those first characters well, but don't really aesthetically match all of the following figures that incorrectly reused 'em based on flawed and slavish vintage line parts recipes.

    So yeah, some NEW feet would be super keen!!!

    But sorry, disagree bigtime that Ninjor be made to look more humanoid.

    Who says Ninjor is a human?

    Sorry, but I got to disagree with you guys. Ninjor came with demon feet in the vintage line and he needs to be with demon feet in his classic counterpart. To me, Ninjor is more than human. I would even imagine him as an ancient Oni (Japanese word for "demon") that existed in Eternia a long time ago.

    This to a t. Maybe even spice up his original origin by stating he was pulled from far within Despondos.

    I never had the figure as a kid, but I gotta tell you, the claw-feet-demon thing is 100% spot-on. I think that making them classics, yea, you can spice them up a little, but don't mess with the actual characterization or you're creating a tangent character. KEEP THE DEMON FEET!!!

    Maybe they could add red demon eyes to make him more demonish and to make his face more different than Jitsu's one!

    Maybe it would be cool if the human facial features were exaggerated slightly so that he looked a bit inhuman? That could explain the monster feet. Maybe that would be silly. His face already is a bit exaggerated.

    His vintage face does seem inspired by samurai as depicted in ancient art to me. He's got an ancient red dragon type of deal on his outfit and his reptilian forearms and feet are red. He could have some sort or dragon related powers or curse. At that point, though, I'd have to wonder why he chooses to focus his identity entirely on his ninja skills.

    On the other hand, if he's a human and that's all you want him to be, we've got BA Skeletor, Stinkor and Kobra Khan claiming these feet are just part of their boots. Ninjor just may like that fashion statement. Claw boots help him climb trees and castle walls.

    Ninjor's still got some explaining to do on his arms, though. Especially if they go with Whiplash forearms, which would be vintage toy accurate, right?

    This.

    I GUESS they did use a different sculpt for Jitsu and Ninjor... but honestly, till I joined here, I never believed it. I would LOVE for some actual demonic influences on his face. glowing eyes... SOMETHING....

    This is perfect, my thoughts exactly.

    It's not clear at all he's a humanoid Ninja.

    He needs his original feet. & while we're at it, Faker needs those feet, too, I saw a mini comic that had him in it, with those feet.

    First: I know I'm arguing semantics here, but being a humanoid doesn't mean he's human. Technically every MOTUC figure we've gotten is humanoid. Skeletor, Hordak, Scareglow, Syklone, Whiplash... they're not human, but they're all humanoid.

    Secondly, people might complain, but why not introduce a new foot? A booted three-toed monster/duck foot :P, but minus the claws... more like a cross between Hordak's feet and the booted feet on most of the Masters.

    He's a supposed demon so claw feet are appropriate.
