    "Eye-Beam" Speculation/Suggestions

    Ok, I know we have Tri-Klops, and Optikk is coming, and so is Peekablue (psychic vision), but Eye-Beam (a concept character), would be cool.

    The thing is, he could be done as a small pack-in...

    what if Eye-Beam were the size of Optikk's eye, and he were given hands and legs?

    Or maybe he could be a little larger... no one says the concept toys all HAVE to be 6" figures...

    i think it's pretty obvious that they used the idea of eye-beam & turned him into Optikk the same way netta was turned into netossa.

    Eyebeam. Hmmm..... I'm still trying to wrap my head around the bio for Optikk at the moment. His name is spoken through a series of blinks? With what? He has no eyelids to blink with!
    Where does he speak, hear, taste, smell from? Is his brain encased in the eyeball?

    Oy.

    That's what I love about his bio! Since his name is pronounced through a series of blinks, that means his species normally has an eyelid. So, we can assume Optikk is like Trap-Jaw, sorta; he's kinda robotic, so I bet he was in some sort of accident. So, without an eyelid, that makes Optikk mute! At least to his own species. He's probably got a vocal emulator to speak to Skelly and the others.

    ANYWAY: Eye Beam!! Yeah! I don't care how it's done, so long as it gets done! I'm all for Eye Beam! I've said this in other threads, and I still stand by it: You got to be HARD CORE to be a giant eye and carry around a spear as your main weapon. Whats an eye's worst enemy? Long pointy things! This guy is awesome!

    YEAH! I want Eyebeam as well. It would be cool to have 3 eye guys. Eyebeam should be a hero so it's a little more even.

    I was thinking the same thing about the eyelids...
    Please don't try to contact me thru heman.org about casted parts. That is specifically against there guidelines and out of respect for them don't do it. I rarely visit this site any more anyway so any messages more than likely wont be seen for a month. Facebook is the best way, i check there daily.

    yeah, I was aware of them, but figured that using Eye-Beam as Optikk's former identity, as an homage or whatever, was not possible anymore since Optikk's bio has already been revealed.

    Now, Netta, could somehow be mushed into Netossa's bio.

    I think Eye-Beam should definitely be a hero.

    I could get an Eyebeam, BUT this is a character I don't want to see before ALL 80's characters have been released in MOTUC !

    Now, if he's the same size as the other MOTUC figs, he'll take some space, due to the "roundness" of his physique !

    I am with you on that one, b-duke. All the villains have to do to immobilize Eyebeam is to carry a bag full of dirt or dust and throw it in his direction. We don't want him on our side.

    Is he really hardcore or just not that bright? I'm going to go with the latter...

    LOL @ Eyebeam.....


    he reminds me of those giant eyeball guys from 'Freaked'.


    if they make him, great, if not; no big deal. if people think snout spout was goofy, then Eyebeam is that, 100 times over.

    of course if they did make Eyebeam, i'd have to get him, since he/she/it is so unique & such a silly & simple concept.

    i like optikk, alot.... definitely says ''alien'' imo. Bring on more characters that are 100% 'alien' like that. Not everyone in the universe has to have a 'human' face, or be based off some type of Earth animal....

    How does Optikk speak? good question. How does Skeletor see, speak & hear with no eyes, tougue or ears? Who cares? He's a magical fictional character, & Optikk is a friggin alien. He's not like the rest of us, get it?

    I was wondering about that. Perhaps he has in inner eye-lid, like Mr Spock, which protects his eye. When he "blinks", it may just be his pupil blinking. The white of his eye is his head, so I imagine it is much tougher than a human eye. As for making an Eye-Beam figure, he was just a runner up, so I doubt it. Would be an easy miniature custom to make, using Optikk's extra eye!

    No problem. Us villains have got to stick together. Even though you got a lousy Autobot's name...

    This idea wouldn't work now since Optikk's bio is out. But I thought that it'd be cool if Optikk were actually a robot suit piloted by Eye-Beam. That would be a nice way to bring in the concept character and actually explain Optikk's full mechanical body armor. As a bonus, Eye-Beam would be an evil space mutant.

    There's a story behind that name. Every car I've ever owned has been blue. Blue Ford Escort, Blue Geo Prism and Blue Ford Mustang. And now I'm looking at a Blue Nissan Pathfinder.

    I've always named my cars so the Mustang is BlueStreak 3.0. The Mustang is still in good shape - so the Pathfinder will likely get a new name.

    But Decepticons have the Stunticons. My '74 Road Runner is named Motormaster. But I get you on that the Autobots have more names. Your Pathfinder can be Swindle...

    I will revive this old thread...
    I think I found a great buck for Eye-beam.
    He will soon be on his way. It would be cool to have Oo-Larr so I could use his bare feet. It shouldn't matter if he is wearing boots or not.


    One of Optikk's ancient ancestors?? One of the Fighting-Foe-Men??

    ... I think so.

    you know, I almost buy that.

    Now that I said that, I absolutely want no eyebeam. Just...no.
