    The Staction seemed to incorporate Filmation elements as well as 200X elements, making it such a good choice to base the Classics figure from.

    Yeah I've got to go with the Staction version as my fav, though I bet it will be classic with 4 legs (somehow). So yeah, i can see them mixing but staying as close to vintage as possible.

    Best case Scenario: 4 Legs Unique sculpts for them.
    Acceptable compromise: 4 Legs, reuse Whiplash thighs and knees Horde boot with new feet
    Unacceptable: 2 legged Vintage toy redone...

    yeah, based on the original toy, I'd be happy to have him with only two. But frankly I expect 4 legs, unique. It's expected. I dont know how they'll make it look good, but whatever.

    When/if(im sure) it get made, I'll see 4 legs one way or another.

    I wouldn't mind him sharing a special crotch with Modulok. It would make sense Mantenna having an abdomen back there.

    4; shared. He needs to happen soon!!!
    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

    From the Matty Motuc Forum written by Catra's Wrath:

    "Toy Guru commented on this exact question a while ago. Those conversations haven't happened yet, but at the time he said that he would likely have the 'four legs' since 'they'd be a unique sculpt anyway'.

    Perhaps there could be some limb sharing with Modulok (since he uses multiple legs also) who knows!"

    Four unique legs. Mattel shouldn't go cheap on him like they did in the 80's (4 legs fused together) but I think it should be as vintage as possible. C'mon people, this is the Classics line, is it not? Heck, they did a great job with Snake Face. (Vintage and staction-like, imo)

    Oh, the legs/face issue! For a moment, I thought it was over whatever he should come with a bath towel and bathing cap.

    You TRULY are evil.

    Staction is my favourite version, it would be kind of neat though to have a filmation accurate model, but I'd rather not as he is too cute and comical, save it for the funko bobble heads.

    As a big Mantenna fan, I voted for 4 unique legs. I hope that the MOTUC Mantenna is closer to the 200x version than the vintage version.

    If Mattel goes this route and if the figure ends up being a bit expensive, maybe Mantenna can take the Ram-Man slot and be priced a bit higher than the other figures.

    If they go strictly filmation I'll be a very happy camper!

    Two furry Beast-Man legs on Mantenna would be cool, but NOOOOO to Filmation Mantenna head.

    Four separated legs would be the correct representation. They could reuse the technology for Modulok.

    I'd go mostly like the vintage figure, but with the 200x mouth detail. And forget the four legs thing. I'd be fine with just two legs.

    I know, but I don't think they really add to the figure. The way they did it originally you had to look closely to tell. Two legs would be fine I think.
