    Got my Vykron today. I love the barbarian. The leather harness along with all the metal makes him pretty awesome and what I want from this line with certain figures like Vikor and BG Teela. In my cannon he was a gladiator and champion in the arena who was chosen as a He-Man for his bravery and unique skills in victory.

    Out of the three concepts, if I could have only had one in figure form, it would have been Tank Top. So it is a dream come true getting him. I love the mix of tank and flesh. Digging Manda-Lor as well. After you black his face out and get the Boba Fett look, I think he looks pretty neat.

    SCB - Did you buy one set or two? I notice you have no group shot of all 3 SDCC figs, so just one set?

    Are you using tape for Manda-Lor's visor?

    SCB- how does the Space Ace's face look on that TRU He-Man body? In other words, do the flesh tones match, or is the Space Ace Vykron too pale to match that body?

    My least favorite figure in the line so far. Mine arrived this morning. Feels like Remco, not MOTU.

    Yep just one set. I used Triklops body for Tank Top and TRU He-Man body for Manda-Lor. It is electric tape for Manda-Lor's visor.

    Do you guys think one of the online pack-outs is more desirable than the other? I have one of each coming (tank and space ace) and am wondering which to open and which to leave MOC.
    Congratulations! MOTUC 2015!

    Damn! Seeing Tank Top and Space Ace with Flipshot makes me want him WAY more than before...

    If he doesn't sell out by the time Monday (payday) rolls around, I'll snag at least one set.

    I bought Vykron with the intention of adding to King Grayskulls army. Now that he's in my hands I have to take back some of the bad things I've said about him. Photos and videos do not do these figures justice. They look way better when you see them with your own two eyes. I have the feeling the fighting Foemen might have the same effect on me so I decided to buy a sub next year. Although, the tank head is a bit silly, everything else is cool. I'm glad I bought him. I'm thinking of making a new character with a trapjaw body repainted and the space armor. I'm going to call him Sky-Scraper. Maybe add those cy-chop hands when they come in.

    I'm really enjoying this set to the point where I wish they'd make a Power and Honor sub and make figures of all the oddball stuff in the catalog.

    It's a palace guard snake head wrapped in electric tape.

    The barbarian version almost looks kinda cool, but the trucker hat thing, the weird painted eyebrows, the hair that doesn't look like his, just a bit too goofy.

    The other suits just don't come together as a cohesive character at all.

    I got my Vykron today and I have to say, he's cooler than I expected! I got the Tank Top version because it was my favorite but I'm actually digging the Space Ace look...It has a neat retro Flash Gordon feel to it. The barbarian outfit looks nice with Vikor but the harness is actually harder to fasten than the space one, I found.

    Vykron is pretty versatile, I'm having fun mixing and matching the different armor pieces and making my own character!

    tank top reminds me of something you would have seen in the m.u.s.c.l.e. men toy line.

    I like the Tank Armor on the purple body.
