    In any case I'll be gunning for 2 packs in order to make Red-Eye... IF Filmation Kowl makes it to the line, Toy Kowl shall become Kowla!

    After Glimmer, two bad and Modulok, Kowl is my #4 favorite 2013 SDCC Reveal!
    FINALLY!! GLIMMER IS IN MY SHELF!! Now I need a Crita!! Crita is to Mara what Evil Lyn is to Teela. If we ARE getting Mara, then we NEED Crita.

    Hadn't though of Red Eye; I may be getting an extra pack, as well...

    I actually love that they did the vintage toy colors first. It's a nice homage and its actually a nice color scheme.

    It's HIGHLY likely we will get the filmation version
    I hope so, nothing against the vintage colors one but I really prefer and want the Filmation version.

    I was THRILLED to see Kowl, I still have my vintage toy, which I love, so I will be going for TWO of these packs because I want one Kowl in my MOTU/POP/NA set up as well as an extra to have anywhere I please around the house...LOL.

    All the other PoP figures have been Filmation based, even the Star Sisters, so it's odd for Toyguru to suddenly favour the "toy design" when it comes to Kowl.
    Sorry, not true. The Star Sisters were based on poster art not on FILMATION. Starla for example had a very different staff and no hat/crown.



    But Iīm a little disappointed in Kowl.

    He is nothing more than an accessory now.

    While Orko got ball joints for shoulders and elbow joints, a stand and accessories and iīm not talking about Adam. Kowl is not flocked, it seems he only has two articulation points and he thought he would be bigger in size when it comes to scale like they promoted with Orko!

    The toy colors look great if you ask me.

    This is kind of how I felt when I saw Kowl. Basically he is an accessory included in an accessory pack. Going into SDCC Kowl was one of my top 5 wants and thus I was very excited when I walked up to the case and saw him on preview night but then I looked more closely and saw the weapons pack and my excitement decreased. I'm still glad to get him but I was expecting better.

    Also as someone who collects figures both loose and MOC the fact that Kowl isn't coming in a figure package is really disappointing. Unless they do another version of him somewhere down the road (unlikely) he is going to end up being the biggest void in my MOC lineup.

    You're right. My bad.

    But, the Star Sisters appear to be a lot closer to their Filmation appearance than their original action figure designs.

    For those who were at the con and saw Kowl in person, how does he compare scalewise to Orko?

    Donīt worry, sadly they look anything but their original toy prototypes.
    Some details are nice but Iīm one of the few who likes Starlas hat/crown and here in FILMATION Jewelstar has some nice details on her boots and waist and Tallstars chocker is nice!

    But still Kowl isnīt treated as well as Orko is and thatīs a bit sad especially since he isnīt coming with a bio at least that could have been put on the back even if it had been a short one, if you ask me.

    I think that they are running out of budget and just included him in the best way that they could. He should have been larger, Filmation colors, and had more articulation. It's sad to say but going forward I feel all of the "little guys" will be done with this type of articulation. Loo-Kee had similar results. I hope they don't cheap out on Razz with similar articulation if she gets a figure. We should definitely get a Filmation color Kowl somewhere down the road.

    Kowl should be small. In quite a few episodes he is seen sitting on people's shoulders. In SOTS he is the same size as Cringers head. They both hide under a bench. Do an image search.

    I did and I found this.kowl.jpg

    It looks to me like he is the same size as Orko. Orko's figure seems larger in size. Maybe, I'm wrong. I just always thought he was bigger.

    I think people want him to be larger based on how large the original toy was in comparison. I always wanted a tiny Kowl that could hang out on Bow's shoulder.

    It depends on the animation cel. He's been a little larger than bow's head and nearly the size of orko. I think the size they went with is good. I think he'll fit on Bow's shoulder.
