    That is how these figures have been produced. Taking strong inspiration design-wise from vintage MotU and giving them more articulation and detail. That includes paint hits. I don't think it'd have been offensive to any fans had they added a slightly different shade of orange to SOME of the gears in the legs or even a gloss highlight here and there. They did that to the neck, it's not all flat plastic it has gloss trim on each section. Also, there's more sculpted detail including the back of the seat…that was also DIFFERENT from Night Stalker on the vintage steed, not just the shields.
    200X fan? Classic fan? What does that mean? I'm a MotU fan!!!

    Those expecting more paint deco can always add it themselves but Super7 has to give everyone the same Stridor. Some would want the extra deco hits on the legs, others might not.

    That was definitely the way the line was supposed to be. I was QUITE upset that Stinkor's weapons and Blade's swords had no deco, when every other accessory had some kind of highlights, just like every other MOTUC item.

    Here you go: reKIMG0104.jpgKIMG0103.jpgKIMG0102.jpgKIMG0104.jpg Suffice to say, this custom Stridor is like a tank and I love it The Nightstalker figure weighs like a pound? whereas Stridor probably weighs 2-3 pounds.

    WOW! Thank you for taking the time to post these pictures!

    Fascinating that the height of the custom and the official is almost the same, but the custom is wider/longer! I agree with you that the custom is a great looking item. IMHO, someone who knew nothing about the robot horses might mistake the custom for the official. Really interesting how similar they are, but yes, very different at various points of design and execution.

    Thanks again!

    I fixed up my Stridor with these stickers I scored from Ebay. These are actually vintage repros for Vintage 80's MOTU Stridor. They fit great and give him his shields and back of seat tech detail. I also added the vent sticker just because I can. The only sticker I couldn't use was the console sticker. These are high quality and have been staying pretty good. Only drawback is the seller is in Australia so I had to wait for them. One asise, the stickers are in better scale with the modern version than the vintage one.

    Not the only set of repros I have gotten from this seller. Got some repros for my Vintage Castle Greyskull and Talon Fighter/Point Dread from this guy and they are great also. In addition the came with recreations of the cardboard inserts as well. Price is decent, just the travel time being the only issue. He has other sets also. Just search for him on ebay, I am not posting any links or seller info do to forum rules. Though the picture of the sticker sheet does feature some info.

    Thought I would post this as an option for those people who want to Stridor to have some of his lost vintage details. Sorry for the quality of pics but I took them with my phone which is the only camera I have on hand.
    Griffen Is not My real name, just what I aspire to be.

    I collect MOTU/POP, Transformers, Garfield the Cat, & 80's/90's Book & Tape/Record Sets. I collect VHS & DVD of 80's-00's properties. I get comic books, novels, & ViewMaster Reels as well. If you want to discuss this stuff & other things, then PM me here on the .org. I enjoy anime, video games, & sci-fi, too. DC or Marvel, it's all good.

    Super7's stuff hasn't been top notch so far. Compared to mattel, the slightly higher prices here combined with slightly lower quality products so far... at $80 I really think this is where I'm gonna have to draw the line.

    So, there was a convention in my home town. Super7 showed up again for the 2nd year in a row. And sure enough there was some MOTUC stuff available. And one of those items was STRIDOR!!!

    So I still stand my ground that $80 after tax + shipping is too much. But when Super7 comes to town and has Stridor on hand for $60 out the door, I can't pass on that.


    So yeah, horseman1981 - I think that you're absolutely right, $60 and no shipping is the right price for these guys. Super7 needs to hit up more convention shows.

    I also grabbed Filmation Teela for $35. Passed on Filmation Tri Klops for $35 (probably should have just grabbed one for trading purposes). They also had Quake on hand, and Hawke, I think? But I already had those 2. So I passed on them.

    Oh yeah and even better, when I got home from the show I had a Super7 package sitting at my front door.
    I got Dylamug, Karg, Wrap Trap, Granita, and Filmation Tung Lashor.

    Just opened my Stridor today. I usually put off on opening these things because stuff like this happens.



    We'll see if I am able to get any help.

    Still no response from Super7. Any advice from anyone to expedite a resolution?

    Just got a response to my second request for help.

    Finally had some time to finish my Stridor repaint. The sculpt is fantastic, but Super 7 has dropped the ball with the lack of paint, it was too much like a toy, not a collector's item.

    I wanted to give it a more realistic look - lots of shading and drybrushing. The worst part was painting the back of the seat, which was just the orange plastic, with the colors of the vintage sticker.

    Beautiful work, Kurt!

    I think the Club Grayskull "Filmation Fisto" would look amazing paired up with your Stridor!

    That does look really cool. I've noticed that from time to time about these items looking more like toys than collector items. I've painted a few of the weapons myself because they were just so dull looking. Good work!

    Ha ha! I completely disagree. Filmation Fisto would look horribly out of place on this thing of beauty. :-)

    Actually...even Classics Fisto would probably look underwhelming/under-detailed on this thing, too.

    My Steidor's helmet is horribly misshapen and currently held in place by some of those clear plastic bands from MOTUC packaging. Hoping it will eventually retain its shape so I can remove the bands.

    If it were stored in a hot place, the combination of the rubber bands and the heat could have misshapen the helmet. I've seen people use hot water to soften the plastic back up and allow it to retake its original shape.

    Hey, why don't you re-paint your own Stridor and then re-paint whatever figure you want as the driver and post pics of them?

    That would be interesting. :-)

    Not sure what you're getting at. I said this is a thing of beauty.
