He'll go nicely with Queen Marlena, Adora, Adam and Cringer - all Filmation-like.
I'm super happy. I passed on the original Randor because this is the one I wanted. Battle action Randor (Vintage or MYP) takes away the importance of MAA, Teela, and He-Man that protect him/kingdom
He'll go nicely with Queen Marlena, Adora, Adam and Cringer - all Filmation-like.
MOTUC WISHLIST - Karg | Lady Slther | Kothos | Staghorn | Sorceress of Serpos Teela | Hunga the Harpy | Kittrina | Dylamug | Hawke | Angast | Zilora | Artilla | Quakke | Robo-Woman | Great Black Wizard | Enchantress | Red Beast | Delora | DC He-Man | DC Skeletor | Lodar | Fang-Or | Mini Comics Tri-Klops | Filmation Jitsu, Frosta & Kobra Khan | Hans Hammer Holder | Granita |
Filmation King Randor was my Adora-like totally "wow" moment. Completely unexpected and, for my part, completely welcome. At last, this is the King Randor that should have been in the first place; the vintage toy version was clearly just a cheap-out redesign of Filmation Randor, reusing Jitsu's armor instead of tooling the new (non-reusable) dress parts that were needed.
I was really disappointed in this one - particularly after Mattel said no filmation variants. (and considering we still haven't seen the 200x variant that was moved out to make room for shadow weaver...)
I personally think variants should be out of the sub. They are the only motuc figures that I am consistently disappointed that I am forced to buy them.
Photog is here! thank you, Mattel!
Now how about some mini-comics love (like Lodar, Geldor, Dakon......)? And Mermista?
If nothing else, he will go much better with Queen Marlena.
And he would make an excellent Burger King custom "the king".
I could've done without this Randor variant and lived a happy life. However, I do believe in finding bright spots in things. I will likey replace vintage randor with him because Randor 1.0's ankles are pretty weak. I will swap heads and give Randor 2.0 the 1.0 accessories (staff and sword) to make him seem more imposing, I'm not sure what I'll do with the goblet of krunk juice but it will be displayed somewhere.
I am happy for people who have finally gotten the King Henry VII...errrr....Throne Room Randor figure because he was wanted by some of those among us. Perhaps we will get a Champagne Room Marlena eventually to go with him
Ask not for whom MOTUC is made, it's made for thee.
If you have to disclaimer your like, then you don't really like it.
Love this figure!!! much better then other variants in the past such as BA He-man, BA Skeletor, HH, PD He-man, SMAA and King He-man, well that's just MHO.
Let me first say he came out really great. Like, he looks AMAZING! However, I find this variant to be completely unnecessary- if I were getting a second Randor figure, I wanted it to be a Captain Randor to go with all of the mention of The Great Unrest, the Keldor figure, etc. This Randor is pretty much the same exact era as the Randor we already have, just with throne room wear instead of armor. He matches Queen Marlena for the Filmation fans, but honestly I think my Marlena figure looks great besides the previous MOTUC Randor... so... guess I'm getting this one for the new goblet?
Next Ten Most Wanted: Classic Toy Costume Catra, Quakke, Sagitar, Negator, Granita, Bould-Or, Lady Slither, Bubblor, Major Header, Queen Elmora (She-Demon Of Phantos)
The figure was one of my most-wanted. VERY happy to get him! Now if only they'd do a white Captain Glenn . . .
My seller/trader/buyer feedback:
MOTUC Most Wanted: 1) Stridor 2) Land Shark 3) Road Ripper
1st Filmation Variant !
This was one of my biggest wOw moments yesterday. No matter how people trash talk Filmation Randor, I Like Him...... I Love Him...... And I Am Gonna Get Him ! BTW, I'll get two via SUB !!
Matty Has Been Matted For 2017 !
Now I Seriously Hope Super 7 Makes Me Feel I Am In Heaven !!
I'm pretty happy with him. He wasn't necessarily one of my most wanted variants (like a Filmation Hordak would be), but he is still pretty cool, and it will be nice to have a cartoon-style Randor to stand next to Marlena.
In the name of the Lloyd!
I love him. This is what I wanted as a kid! Now we totally need a Batte Armor Marlena to accompany 1st Release Randor!
PoP Variants are part of the vintage line, too! Starburst She-Ra, Shower Power Catra, and Scratchin' Sound Catra for 2015!!!
Meh... worst reveal of the bunch.
For me, Randor is a warrior, so I'll stick with my more warrior-like version.
A 200x style refresh would interest me, but not this one in the slightest.
The notion of a white hair repaint for a Mini-Comics version is clever, but not $30+ clever for me.
His look does not match the savage aesthetic I prefer. I don't like his tights and loafers. I will keep his cup for King Skeletor to drink the blood of his defeated enemies. I will chop up this Randor or sell him.

I like him. He looks just like the Filmation Randor, and this is good.
I reckon it's unlikely they'll ever re-issue the original Randor now so this should keep fans that weren't able to get the original figure, since they'll now be able to add Randor to their collection.
My original King Randor doesn't stand up at all, he's top heavy and he's the figure that falls down the most on my shelf, and he's currnently propped up by the wall at the back and looks kind of slumped. He looks drunk. I'm probably going to swap the sword we got with the original figure, and give the original the goblet of Eternian Mead, so he looks like he's been drinking!
MOTUC: What we need NOW:
KARG, Eldor, Horde Troopers, NA Skeletor, Sagitar
Never was a fan of the vintage toy Randor and was hoping we'd get the Filmation version down the line... this is now my most anticipated release for the remainder of this year, after Frosta is such a big let down. Cannot wait to pick him up!
I agree we also need Filmation Hordak! (I sold my original MOTUC Hordak in hopes of getting the Filmation version! So have my fingers crossed he's the $25 variant or SDCC exclusive next year)
At this point I just HOPE for Dylamug and Hunga the Harpy!
Vintage King Randor is awful. It's a gaudy color scheme and he reuses Jitsu's armor. It's just a terrible design, though the classics figure itself has no QC issues. Vintage Randor is as cheap, lazy, and creatively bankrupt as vintage yellow Evil Lyn.
Filmation Randor was always Randor to me.
Finally I will have a Randor figure, the current classics figure can go into the bottom of the storage bin to be forgotten and never displayed again.
Cool! And good to know I will have a figure for custom purposes... THIS will be my main Eandor in my canon! Yes I am a Filmation kid!
Well I'm happy for folks that wanted this guy! Not terribly excited myself, though I can already imagine a ton of jokes for him. As I always say: If I can't be excited about him, then I can certainly be excited about making jokes with him!

Filmation Randor is pure awesomeness! He's the iconic version, and in my world, all figures should look as close to their Filmation counterparts as possible. If they did a Filmation-only sub, I'd buy it despite the huge price hike. Glad Randor is coming this year not next!
