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!! Crita is coming... Now I NEED SONGSTER! The Awesometastic Bard!
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.
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.
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.
I'd like one... but I don't see ANY out of sub things getting bought for ME in October...
Seriously, Dactys, Mantenna AND the Horde troopers??? With Grayskull the NEXT month???
Yeesh... that's $450+ in two months...
IT'S TIME FOR MOTUC TO GO GREEN INCLUDE THE TWIGGETS IN 2016!!!
OTHER TOP PRIORITIES: Inspector Darkney Master Sebrian and Gleep Admiral Scurvey and Squall Starburst She-Ra Grot Spyster Caz & Drissi Crystal Moonbeam Crystal Sun Dancer Meliac NA Prince Adam Chef Allen Songster Scrollos Karg Kowla Red Eye
For those who were at the con and saw Kowl in person, how does he compare scalewise to Orko?

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.

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.
