    Please, oh PLEASE, truly be a release of "Stridor;" and, somewhere down the line, rerelease Fisto!

    I was wondering the same. I read his post twice and still don't know what he's talking about. Oh well. The good news is, there is already too much detail shown in this teaser (circuitry) for it to be a boring Filmation version.

    This is amazing news! Stridor is going to be awesome Fans that hate cool details will just have to bust out the sandpaper and make those sculpted details melt away!

    My only guess is that maybe he was confused and was talking about Night Stalker instead.....but Night Stalker came out almost two years ago, and baronterror is on here enough that he should know that, so, until he clarifies, I suppose this remains a mystery .

    It will only cost $2,000.00 dollars, arrive sometime in 2037, come in neon pink with green smears probably, and one of the legs will be a Sssssqueeze arm for some reason.

    Excellent news! I've always said it would have been such a shame not to Stridor in Collectors tor Choice after we already got Night Stalker.

    Iím really stoked for everyone who wants this. I know itís a dream coming (hopefully) true for a great many here.

    I hope it sells super well and opens up the possibility for more oversized items.

    I'm not understanding all of the criticism about Stridor possibly being Filmation styled? Am I wrong assuming they will reuse the NS molds or retooling of NS, which was CC?

    I would be happy just to finally get a Classics scale!

    But I would love to see a 2-pack of Stridor and Filmation Fisto with a chrome fist!

    What if this Stridor tease is for the 3.75" MOTUC line? Then it darn better come with a 3.75" Fisto!

    But now I’m not so sure any more. If they really do this and we don’t get a Classics Stridor but a Filmation one instead, I’m out. I’ll cancel my preorders and boycott S7 forever.
    Even though I prefer the Filmation aesthetic in general since the vintage toys have long since been released in MOTUC, I do have to agree with you in this situation. Stridor SHOULD be the classicized version as it's silly to have Night Stalker in that style and not Stridor (especially since the vintage version came before the cartoon version and it's origin lies with the vintage style)

    However I very much doubt it will be a Filmation version when it's almost certain they used the existing Night Stalker mold. If it required the toy be made at the Mattel factory even better and hopefully they thought to include Fisto too as an extra pack in as it's a good excuse to access the Fisto mold too. Then anyone who is in need of Classics Fisto will be inclined to buy Stridor too
    Most wanted Filmation style MOTUC figures:

    Hunga the Harpy, Webstor, Kobra Khan, Leech, Whiplash, Rattlor, Catra Cat Form, Ram Man, Count Marzo, Two-Bad, King Miro, Twiggets, Frosta, Kothos and Admiral Scurvy.

    Leg joints on Stridor will probably stick out 6" on all 4 legs. Super7 is in China again to make sure everything is perfect just like Teela and Hawke

    Jokes aside about the latest Super-7 QC, since they seemingly have no access to the Night Stalker tooling and would logically have to do this all from scratch, I would request that they add ratchet Joints to the legs. At least the rear legs, so it can hold rearing poses. Night Stalker can NOT do that.

    I am just waiting to see how they screw this up. I hope I am proven wrong. Go ahead Super-7. Really surprise me, and make it BETTER than Mattel's Night Stalker. I dare you.

    Brian Flynn was hoping to be able to use the Nightstalker Mattel mold I know that as he said as much several months back, Super7 didn't want to have to tool stridor from scratch as that would make things more difficult. So here is hoping that Mattel stepped in and got them use of the nightstalker mold and that the plastic quality will be really good.

    Great news!

    Like others have mentioned, here's the chance for ratchet joints and the missing control panel!

    All things considered, this is Great news.....but, Super 7 needs to be upfront and let us know right off the bat whether this is indeed the Mattel mold or an all new one.
    I guess my biggest concern would be "shrinkage" like what supposedly happened to Teela.

    Understood. Thanks. I figured the reason S7 went with Stridor as the initial large offering was that they had the tooling and made this less of a risk venture than say, Mantisaur or something tooled from scratch. Well hopefully even if they donít get the tooling from Mattel they can reverse engineer Night Stalker. Iím not against improvements like those mentioned earlier in the thread but would like both good and evil robotic mounts to look like they belong on the same shelf.

    Would love to get a few of these. Hopefully they are the same as the other and made as good. And are near same price.

    The main thing I think that could be improved from Night Stalker to Stridor is narrowing the gaps in the neck pieces. While it's nice for Night Stalker's neck to be so well articulated, the gaps between each piece are a bit of an eyesore to me.

    I just hope it is "metal" is silver and not flat, cheap-looking gray. If it's silver, it will be awesome.

    Just a guess.
    I would love a filmation Fisto since I could never get my hands on a Classics Fisto.
