    Nice. His back looks good. I could go either way on the tanks. I was also curious to see which legs he would have -the Webstor or Buzz-Off ones. Good to see it's the Webstor ones.

    I hope you're right Shadowfall1976. The blood-tanks were one of the coolest upgrades in the staction line, and many of us will be bummed if they don't make it into this figure...

    Great new teasers, a little disappointed with no blood tanks but glad we've got the extra little arms, I'd want them over the tanks if I was given the choice anyway.

    I hope they do this again with more figures

    I don't understand why the 4H made the back tanks or why people like the tanks. They were a lame add-on. HIS CHEST IS A TANK FOR THE BLOOD!!! That's his gimmick. I think the back tanks were totally unnecessary and took away from his gimmick chest. A bad design choice.

    I agree with mick4metal that the tanks take away from the design of Mosquitor, what I would really like to see is translucent red Buzz-Off wings that clip into his back where the insect legs go. That way you can have "vintage" or winged "1/2 200X" versions.

    hmmm yeah i kinda of have mixed feelings about that as well, maybe the insect parts are removable and you can attach the tanks, guess we'll have to wait and see how the final product turns out to be,

    What if Mosquitor gets full, he can't drain people anymore? Or fights enemies that he can't sting, such as Roboto or Stridor ? I think that's his way of storing blood for consumption from all the people he's stung. Sort of carrying your lunch and dinner with you. This is sort of like how 200X He-Man has a pouch for coin and inventions, or Fisto has books and ale in his belt.

    I'm really not bothered by the missing tanks, but I can see why some fans are.

    A little disappointed with his back. Really regret not picking up the staction at toycon for $15 now.

    Latest pics are awesome, especially the last one, bravo TG!

    I'll miss the blood tanks, but I like what i see thus far. truth be told i miss a lot of the 200X uniqueness, but also classics is a nice blend of vintage and 200x in many cases, just wish there was more unique bodies, maybe have 3 male bucks and 2-3 females. but if I had to choose i'd say classics is the best motu toyline where as the stactions are the best sculpts and the vintage line the most fun toyline.

    He has to have one accessory thay hasn't been shown based on TG's rule saying every figure gets 2. So i bet it's probably tanks or an alternate head.

    I'm feeling good about Mosquitor as far as the pics show him. Don't miss the blood back pack. I'm fine, that he got a new detachable armor. Due to the the armor, I don't think the chest piece has liquid in it. Maybe we get some interchangable plates.

    I think the back looks great and honestly I think with wings, arms and tanks it would just be too much for my tastes on his back, though I think I would have picked wings over arms, but he still looks great

    Cant wait to see what they did with the chest, i will be ok with the plate thing like BA Heman, but Id rather some kind of liquid

    I still think this armor may be think enough to hold liquid int he front. I'm holding out hope for that...

    I can do without the blood tanks. I think that was a neat feature of the staction, but not neccesary for me. His chest is the blood reciptical, and that works fine for me. If they were included, I'd be ok with that as well, but I'm fine with them missing.

    I'm very glad there are no wings. Mosquitor doesn't need wings. I've always said that. The staction didn't have wings, so I'm unsure why that keeps getting thrown out. Unless you guys are talking abotu those bat wings, which I feel are just Horde deco and part of his blood tanks, not actual wings.

    Based on his old mini comic, I always look at Mosquitor more like a man made into a robotic mosquito person rather than an actual insectoid. Mosquitor is just like Snout Spout, Dragstor, and Extendar. He's a creation of Hordak. The insectoid look of him in the stactionw as awesome, don't get me wrong. But I am very happy to see him more like this on the Classics figure, and I'm glad there are no wings.

    That's all just my opinion, though. Only a few more days until the reveal! I am so excited I'm about to 'splode!

    From the looks of it, the W-shape doesn't appear to be a clip-on, so if those are indeed interchangeable plates they will be a royal pain to swap, not to mention the brittleness of the translucent plastic.

    Given that the armour is detachable, there's no room for the vintage bloodpumping feature, but I think liquid content (maybe with a hidden compartment) is still a possibility.

    actually, the whip was the only thing I liked about Spector.

    Has anyone mentioned yet that the picture with draego-man with the mosquitor head flipped over looks like the black insect head is SEPERATE from the red helmet part? If you look at the silver piece comming out of the black mosquitor head there is a gaparound it and the black head as if the red helmet is a press fit on it... just like the staction! ANYONE ELSE THINK SO TO??????

    That would be cool. I'd love for him to have the staction's insect head as well.

    He looks awesome! I'm cool without their being a pump or tanks, and think the back detail looks pretty sweet. I don't think he will have the smaller insect head of the staction, but I suppose there is always the possibility!

    Going to be a GREAT figure, and these pictures have been great fun.

    And if Mattel uses the same plastic as they did on Roboto and Green Goddess, it will be raining blood

    Yeah, same here, from what I've seen the Horsemen really outdid themselves on this one and it would be a shame if his chest ended up cracking.
