    Mine arrived, I changed him from Space Ace to Barbarian and he's good to go!
    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.

    Until I took Vykron out of his box, I referred to him as 'That Abomination.' I gotta say, I've done a complete 180. It just goes to show how even the weirdest concept character ends up being cool once you have it in your hands.

    So, I was cheap and didn't want to buy 3 Vykrons. So, I put the Tank Top armor on my first edition He-man (reversed shoulders) and then I put the Space Ace armor on Thunder Punch He-man. The only problem was not having a head for that helmet. But I took an extra Spector head, shaved the top down some so it fit and painted it gloss black! I actually really like the way it turned out. But I think I'm giving up on trying to get that belt to ever close. I may just glue it.

    Received mine here in the UK today ("Tank Top" version), but he was immediately confiscated by big Sister, so I won't get him until my birthday in a couple of weeks.

    MAN this figure is cool! So much more than I thought he would be; and I was already looking forward to him! All the parts fit like a dream, and my only complaints are pretty much for the handles on the guns. I fixed the tank one, at least:



    So now that fits way better and looks better too. Otherwise I can't find any faults here - even the Space Ace armor fits perfectly! So far I've got my Tank Top on a Faker body:



    And I need an opinion on Space Ace. Randor Body:



    or Mo-Larr body?

    Looks great save for the orange arm.

    I tried the SMAA one, but I think the darker MAA body looked better with the armor.

    That Randor base looks pretty cool. My buddy is going to try out his extra Prince Adam, but I think I've settled on using Spikor's.

    I think I prefer the Mo-Larr body for Space Ace to the Randor.

    I ordered 2 and my Spaca Ace version came with a right arm locked in place. It took a lot of effort and fear of snapping it off to get it free. Both his shoulders are difficult to raise laterally as well. Anyone else?

    Are other fans with multiples using them as seperate characters? Think I'll christen mine as "Tank-or" (with apologies to the Transformer with that name) and pick up another to use as barbarian Vykron (who'll complement Vikor nicely)

    Got my 2 today and have a 3rd on the way. I wasnt going to get 3 but dangit Im worth it! lol. Seriously though, I love this figure and the Space Ace armor is 1 million times cooler in person. Great idea for an exclusive and a great way to commemerate the work of Roger Sweet. I love all these guys and hoo boy do I have some left over armor

    Got mine yesterday and love him, got the tank suit on him now an I gotta say I'm digging it. I thought I would only like the warrior outfit, but I kinda look at it as we, we already have vikor and I have flipshot, not saying that the other suits a crap or anything. I just think the tank armor stands out as my favorite. I only bought one, so if I figure out how to display all three, I will defiantly do so. Again, love this figure.

    Thanks, Alexx. I like how the tek textures go with the armor textures. Now he just needs armored trunks...

    I also am using the Mo-Larr body for Space Ace, but for mine I am just having him without the gauntlets- as I feel the blue gloves look really great with the rest of the armor. Plus the paler skin tone makes the grey & orange armor stand out more. For weapons, he has the pistol and a long axe from the Weapons Rak. I gave Tank Top the Space Ace gun so he can go into battle fully loaded!

    Yeah the shotgun doesn't seem to hold well in any figure's hands. Shame too, wanted him to duel weild.

    Woohoo! My Vykron came today!

    Yeah, same here. I worked his arms up and down a few times and everything turned out okay. How's the color matching on yours? The arms and torso are very slightly different shades.

    I gave the Vykron the Barbarian gear to Vikor. He looks great with the long loincloth, horned helmet, and proto-He-Man chestpiece. He's like... complete. The only drag is that the green paint on his weapons looks bad with the blue highlights on the Vykron gear.

    Vykron himself is now a combo of Tank Top and Space Ace. He's wearing the Tank Top armor but the Space Ace helmet. The orange of the helmet matches okay with the red gems on his bracers, so it doesn't look too outlandish. Or you could put Space Ace's bracers on him. I wish I could get the belt on him. The Tank Top armor has these two little holes that almost look like they'd accomodate the pegs on the Space Ace belt, but they're nowhere near deep enough. I'm thinking of getting some kinda sticky tack to put the jetpack on him. I think that'd look really good.

    The rest of the Space Ace gear and Tank boots ended up getting drawer'd. I want to like the Tank Top head, but I just can't. It almost looks like it should come with a little base so it can act as his sidekick, kinda like a doomseeker.

    Now I just need to get an extra Thunder Punch He-man body; switch that Space Ace gear onto it and make the main body the barbarian. And also...dust this shelf...
