    Dragoon: How big should he be?

    Should Dragoon be a regular figure, an oversized figure or a beast? Please vote for your preferred version!

    Here are some reference pictures from the cartoon:






    I've also included a comparison photo of the Draego-Man & Orko figures below, just to give a sense of scale. A regular sized Dragoon figure would likely require new thighs and a new torso "armor" covering.

    Here's link to a discussion on Dragoon's size: http://www.he-man.org/forums/boards/...73#post3592073

    PS. Apologies to anyone who voted in my previous attempt at this poll, but I had to restart the poll to clarify the size options.

    Sure, he could be over-sized, but I think competition for those slots is going to be pretty steep for the next few years and I want to see this guy made, so I voted regular figure sized.
    WHERE IS THE TRANSPARENCY?

    I went with regular sized.

    I could also see him as a slightly larger oversized figure, but I think he'd be just fine if done like Lord Dactys and King Chooblah.

    MOTUC Shadow Beast size is way too big for Dragoon. In the MOTUC scale he'd dwarf the regular characters if he were that big. Not to mention, he'd stand almost no chance of being released in that scale.

    Anyone who wants Dragoon made in the MOTUC line, please post in his support thread!!

    Based solely on the pic where Dragoon is giving He-Man a knee to the ol' loincloth (ha), I think he's gotta be an oversized figure, AT A MINIMUM.

    That's exactly why he shouldn't be Beast sized.

    This sums it up for me. Dragoon as a regular figure seems more likely and increases options for any remaining beast slots from amongst the likes of:
    The Glorm
    The Demon (MEF mini)
    Stridor
    Molkrom
    Catra's panther form
    Ice Hacker
    Manticore
    Mer-man' 200x flying fish
    Mantisaur
    Bionotops
    Tyrantisaurus Rex
    Clawdeen

    Really no preference. Between Draego Man & Lord Dactys I've seen proven he'd look just fine normal size.

    Slightly oversized is cool, ala Ram Man.

    Truely beast sized seems too big to me, but so be it.

    I am not particularly moved by the need for his inclusion in this line, but would be proud to stand him there if he were made no matter the size.

    Probably prefer not bigger than Ramman/Tuskador, ect.

    Little larger than a regular figure. Not beast suze. That's to big.

    Even though he is slightly larger than your average muscle-bound-hero, I still vote for regular size.

    I've always considered Dragoon to be of the same build as He-Man, Beast Man, Batros, etc...

    I voted oversized. As a deluxe figure, Dragoon can fit into the quarterly/bi-quarterly slot leaving the monthly/bimonthly spots for much needed and wanted basic sized figures. There's way too many of those still left for Mattel to make and Dragoon can stand out as a new sculpt just above Drago-Man and below Granamyr as a dragon like species. Also, certain parts from Dragoon can be used for characters like Filmation Molkrom, Nu52 Havoc Skeletor, or 200x Tung Lashor, to name a few.

    That's not Dragoon. That is the Dark One. They share the same character model but are two different characters.

    Maybe Dragoon is the Dark One's street name?
