    I've done a flip-flop and gone from loathing this fellow to liking him, especially after Pixel-Dan's review. Will definately be going for the Military mode as my display option, but I have to wait until August 18th as big Sis' has got him for my birthday...

    I looked at the goofy head at SDCCs panel and it didnt seem so goofy imo but it was awesome.
    Im meh with the spacemen guy but Im thinking about customization. what do you think about a Gar wearing that suit? I really would like to have time and patience to create an arena-diorama with barabarian vykron battling the other two versions.

    I think I am going to get the Space Man version, PD has threw the thought out there that is he is packed in that armor and luck is on one's side that it may be pre-stretched to fit....However, the red plastic may get stuck to the flesh plastic...

    Perhaps I'll buy the military pack out after all.
    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.

    I'm buying the Tank Top pack out... and when these go on sale later in the year (which they will for Black Friday) I'll get the Space Ace pack out at that time.

    I have mine already from sdcc and I'm keeping the barbarian look. The other two armors will go on different bucks. The space one does look well on a Tri-klops buck. I've also been adding a little extra color to it.

    Could people please post pics of Vykron in alternative bucks after their figure arrives please!!

    I'm trying to decide if I want to buy multiple Vykrons or just one.

    Also, given that Ram-Man has a complete second head instead of a detachable helmet, I am convinced that the helmet idea with Vykron was so that you have to buy at least two Vykrons to get all three display options. If the barbarian and space heads came as separate heads there would be less tooling, and you would only have to buy one Vykron figure and then two He-Mans for bucks.

    Where's the link for buying Vykron online!? I didn't realise it was this month!

    EDIT:
    found it
    http://www.mattycollector.com/store/...eywords=vykron

    Looks like I can still get Vykron, but displayed differently. I'm not MOC, so I don't care. I'm presuming aug is still the date ofr these guys?

    Do the clip-on bracers fit on gloved hands (like Mo-Larr, Hordak, etc)?

    I bought mine at SDCC.

    I like the space armor the most, but the belt is a NIGHTMARE to fasten.

    I also noticed that the shins are painted flesh tone, and they had paint rubs already.

    The barbarian harmess had paint smudges just from my taking it off once, AND there was a brown line on his chest that matched the edge of the harness.

    The right arm was "frozen" in the joint... reminiscent of DCUC Wave 5, where limbs twisted off because the hole for the arm-peg is too tight.

    The plastic is the lowest quality of any MOUC item I've ever purchased.

    The guns don't have that great 4H finger slot thing that accomodates the thumb. So the figure doesn't hold them well... and the leg clip-on pieces don't allow for the use of the ankle or knee artiuclation to balance the figure... so standing is an issue.

    Sorry to be "negative," but the figure doesn't live up to the rest of the line.

    Thanks for the feedback Bcrduke.

    Considering that I only like the barbarian outfit - & even then not as much as Vikor - I might not bother afterall.

    Now I feel badly.

    There are some nice things about it:

    - the face sculpt
    - the way the face looks with the Barbarian Helmet and the space helmet (the military head had the cannon bent)
    - the barbarian shin-guards are really nice, and look great on Vikor
    - the back of the barbarian harness is really nice
    - the axe is great too
    - the miliary harness and shin guards, as well as the space shin guards, are of better quality than the other pieces

    I love the way the space guy looks... it's like another NA character... it's just hard to make him stand

    My Barbarian Vykron set just arrived (that I bought on ebay). Guy was nice enough to send me the comic as well. Not opening this set until after I get the Space and Military sets, so I know which set I want to keep MIB. Sorry the pictures aren't that good. I used my cell phone.

    In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan,
    Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone;
    Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow,
    In the bleak midwinter, long ago...
    ...a stable place sufficed.

    What can I give Him, poor as I am?
    If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb;
    If I were a Wise Man, I would do my part;
    Yet what can I give Him?....[I can] give my heart.

    bcrduke pretty much sums it up.

    Being a complietist, I picked up 4...
    3 to display loose in each outfit and 1 to keep MIB



    Homage to the original concept photo. (I used a strip of electrical tape to complete the visor look on the spaceman)
