I FULLY SUPPORT THE INCLUSION OF ILLUMINA IN MOTUC!

I'm happy. I'm soooooooo happy. Not because I'm looking forward to getting the figure. I'm thrilled because I DON'T WANT IT AT ALL! Which means that I can avoid giving Mattel and Digital Rivery any business for this item.
Pass for me!
I get to keep my money! YAY!
Just saw the the Guru's Video. I am not to thrilled with the onesided Snap on Armor. Since I display my figures and dont really spend time playing with them. Like BA He-man and Skeletor. I have never changed the battle plates since I got them. So with these you will have to display them from the front only which I normally try not to do. I think I am going to pass on this one. Might get one to keep in the box though..I will Probably decide at the last minute..

After learning a little bit more about the history of this character, I think it's a great way to celebrate the "30th" Anniversary.* I can't say I'm too excited about the figure. As someone who opens his figures, I am glad that I only have to buy one, though. Still, it's a nice tribute to the origins of MOTU.
*30th is in parentheses because I refuse to give in to the idea that 1982 was the year that MOTU was founded. I received He-Man, my brother received half-boot Skeletor, and we received Castle Grayskull together for Christmas 1981.

OWWW He-Mandalorian I like that as much as my name Dia-por
Yeah NorthCoast i think Tank-or might work too
I know everyone wants Ram Man. Frig, I want Ram Man. But imagine the rage that would ensue if they made him an exclusive and he sold out instantly or people missed out? It would be pandemonium. It's a much better idea to put him in the regular sub so nobody misses him since he's such a crucial character. Otherwise he could end up being Shadow Weaver 2.0 and look how awesome that went over for Matty's reputation.
I have faith that they'll get around to Ram Man. And when they do and he's awesome, we can all breathe a sigh of relief.
...and immediately start demanding Two-Bad for SDCC exclusive.
When do we get to see the VW Hot Wheel?

It could be deliberate to be a little more different than Vikor.

I'm getting the sneaking suspicion that it's supposed to be Vykon, but maybe someone should submit the question to one of the Q&A's. And by someone, I mean someone more ambitious than me.
I need Mr. Santalucia,Mr. Pelt,Mr. Eatock,Mr. O'Donoghue or Mrs. Gelehrter to chime in on this wether or not it's spelled correctly in the P&H book.
Congratulations Mattel, Not only is this figure an abomination... but you didn't even get his name right.
Happy 30th everyone!
