    Jitsu`s hand-vac metal or not?

    Do you want vac metal on Jitsu`s hand, considering that it could chip off like on Hurricane Hordak`s armor or do you want a normal golden paint?

    I usually am all for vac-metal in MOTUC... but I have to say, the gold paint used on Jitsu (and I'm assuming he'll look as good as an actual product, and that the paint job isn't just this great-looking on the prototype) looks so damn good, that I think doing anything different would be a mistake. I've been waving the vac-metalized flag for Entrapta all these years, but my first thought upon seeing Jitsu was "Yeah, if they can make all of the gold on Entrapta look THIS good, the MOTUC version of her might surpass the classic PoP version!"

    No vac metal, I've become scared of the stuff because of its delicate nature.
    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.

    No, I prefer regular metallic paint.

    Personally, I don't care what it was in the vintage line. This is the Classics line and we know full well that for those of us who actually have a loose display collection, the vac metal will chip over time. I want a gold paint job for his hand.

    No Vac Metal. Fisto's Fist wasn't Vac Metal in MOTUC's and it looks fantastic. They will use a nice shiny gold paint on Jitsu's hand and it has some green accents to it too in the knuckles from the Sculpts image

    Going against the grain here but i'd like vac metal. My HH is absolutely fine so i see no reason why Jitsu's vac metal app won't be either.

    I voted Vac, because I would prefer it. However If he got Vac I'd be very angry about Fisto, so specifically speaking I would rather they match, so I'll be fine with paint.

    I prefer a match with Fisto, so no vac metal for Jitsu's hand either...

    I wouldn't mind a vac metalized hand for Jitsu in Classics, as long as it's done correctly. Heck, it was in the vintage line.

    As for the argument that, "Fisto's fist wasn't vac metalized in Classics." or, "It won't match Fisto." Remember folks, Fisto's fist was not vac metalized in the vintage line either. So Fisto and Jitsu never matched.

    Personally, I liked that it set the two apart.

    I'm not a fan of vac metal, so I would prefer it the other way.

    Vac is wack. I plan on using this figure a lot and I'd hate the thought of him getting all scuffed up err time he put the smack down.

    Plus gold paint matches the rest of the outfit better. Gotta coordinate.

    I'd like gold vac metal but it won't be a deal breaker.

    Fisto's fist wasn't vac metal in the original line either. Jitsu's hand was, that's the reason for the question really.

    I want it Vac metal, but I like how the original poster kind of sold the anti vac metal movement in his question.

    "No" to chromed parts. I thought they were great as a kid, but now they stick out and look wrong. In 'real life'. nothing looks that shiny at that scale.

    Mattel can't even chrome Hot Wheels right anymore, and I don't want to see badly plated MOTUC, TP He-Man was actually done right, but Hurricane Hordak was not....
    so Mattel already hit their 1 : 10,000,000 odds, they won't likely hit it again before Classics is done.
    Recent....Flutterina, NA Skeletor
    Coming....Rio Blast (sold already)
    Wanted....Entrapa, Light Hope, (A real) Filmation Hordak & Clawful
    Considering....
    Needed....Dragstor

    Oh man, did I forget to use these [sarcasm][/sarcasm] again? Sorry....

    The prototype looks great, so that's good for me.
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti
