    Goat Man deserves the fadin' on the body!!!

    The Goat Man prototype seems to be like a man with a mask... with a simple fading', just what they did with Clawful, it's perfect!
    So please Mattel use the fadin' on Goat Man body!

    seems to me like goat man is wearing a mask...or at the very least is wearing red war paint. fading makes him look like he has a severe sunburn.

    So it's a mask?
    I thought that we are in the same condition of Clawful... the vintage got the same problem of Goat Man...

    And then they fixed...

    the difference between the two characters is that clawful has other crustacean characteristics besides just his head. he's got claws, and his legs are also distinctly not human. whereas, goat man appears to be much more humanoid, with a regular body, wearing boots and red gloves.

    you can see in the original artwork, that there is a clear dividing line between his torso and the red line where his neck starts. while transitional fading may have been more of a chore to produce on action figures in the 80s, surely, if goat man were meant to be some reddish creature, with markings that fade into his torso, then they could have easily depicted this in the artwork.

    this is what makes me think it's a mask, or warpaint.

    Have some imagination people. Goat-man appears to have some demonic qualities to him in which case he can do whatever the hell he wants. I don't see it as a mask or war paint. He might even be a ginger. Who made a rule that said you can't have a hairy head and hands only.

    a ginger? eric cartman won't like that one bit. ultimately, you're right. at this point, i think it's up to interpretation. to me it looks like an evil, red, horned version of "the mask" with jim carrey. like, maybe this guy found this ancient goat mask relic and put it on, and it turned him into this demonic being. that's just one take on it.

    Maybe just fading on the neck. I also prescribe to the demonic mask idea. One he can't take off and now it's a part of him- driving his evil personality further.

    I like him as is, actually. Demon-Goat Mask look!
    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

    It does look a lot better with the furry chest. You've convinced me. I'd like to change my vote from 'C' to 'A'.

    I don't care either way.

    Sure he looks cool with the fading and he is still cool to me without. I'm just glad that we are finally getting him!

    Although I really wanted the fade for Clawful, I can deal with Goat Man as is. I just assumed his fade was right below his neck line which is covered by his armor.
