We should petition for an alternate head for Mosquitor - a Pixel Dan head. If Toy Guru has a head for Spector, we should have a Pixel Dan head so the two can battle it out SDCC style on our shelves!
Honestly, Dan has done a lot for the line - his reviews, interviews, etc. He totally deserves to be immortalized in MOTUC plastic.
Anyone else with me on this?
Just thought it would be cool - heck they could do a PD head for one of the fighting foe men and it would be cool
We had enough with the Toyguru head idolatry. One is more than enough, IMO.
I have to agree with those saying Mosquitor is somewhat underwhelming. And yes Scott saying that they went 'round and 'round on what to include and what route to go with the blood feature so in the end decided to do nothing... is highly dubious. Perhaps he should have just said this is the route they'd decided to go all along. It would have ticked people off less.
I see this figure as one that could use an update down the road. Whether it's add-on blood tanks, an addtl head, or some other feature to make it unique I'm not sure, but he needs something.
Harken the coming of Dragstor!!
It's possible that an additional accessory for Mosquitor could be included in a future weapons pack, aka Drago-Man's whip and Horde Prime's staff. So people couldn't necessarily count the blood tanks out completely.

1000% no. That's not a typo. Great guy, but tooling $$ sorry. Throw Molarr's head on there...same difference.Originally Posted by Dayton72:3103240
I feel like he needs more to his design. He is a whole lot of sweet but just is missing something.
He looks okay to me. Maybe a little unnecessarily bulky. Larger bubbles needed to give the chest a more liquid look. Incest parts on the back are not needed. Poor job on the bio. No reason why we can't have blood tanks, BUT it shouldn't be too hard for die hard Mosquitor fans to come up with parts from the Staction figure (or maybe people can mod their extra Stinkor tank since many bought two of him).
I think Mosquitor is afflicted by the trend to really, really cut down accessories on figures going forward. I was hoping, being that we were told so, that figures going forward would not be losing accessories and paint aps, but that does not seem to be the case if you look at upcoming figures.

I might change my tune once we have Mosquitor in hand, but so far I'm feeling like he's one of the most disappointing figures. With the hugely bulky body, his proportions just look kinda weird as a result, and while I understand he probably cost quite a bit of tooling dollars, he really needs something else to "make him pop." Blood tanks or wings or whatever would've done wonders.
BUT...what irks me the most is that they tried to go for the vintage route, yet the chest piece is completely different from the original:
Why did they change that? The original piece looks more like the Horde symbol or something, and the new one doesn't resemble that at all. Boourns.

I think he looks great. I would have loved to have the liquid ala the vintage figure (which is in my top 5 favorite toys ever as a kid), but I'm glad he doesn't look sickly like the staction and I really don't see the need for blood tanks. He's a giant humanoid Mosquito for crying out loud......Mosquito's don't need no stinking tanks! They ARE the tank!
Mosquitor does look a little off to me. I like the vintage figure a lot better.
I don't mind the lack of liquid to be honest, but I really dislike the new chest piece shape. If they were gonna do the all-vintage style, they should've straight up used the old chest design minus the liquid "blood."
This is one time I WANTED them to copy the original figure more closely. In this case, I would have loved the chest symbol to match the original. Sometimes I do not understand where the 4H are coming from regarding what they do and do not change.
That is odd. I didn't realize the symbol was such a departure from the original. I'd prefer the original as well, although he looks good anyway.
I have a question, does Mosquitor have any Horde insignia on him, his blood armor, doesnt really look like the Horde bat and I was looking at some pics of him dont really any on him. Pixel Dan, im sure you have answer to this. Thanks
you mean the horde arm band, I didnt see it in the pics.
