...During the NYTF panel, Scott asks one of the 4 horsemen if Mantenna was a completely new tooled figure...
...The horseman replied that he was all new, apart from his hands and his crotch piece...
...later again in the Pixel Dan walkthrough, Scott mentions this again...
QUESTION IS .... have we ever seen another figure with this crotch piece that allows for 4 legs so far in the line? I don't think any released figure has it....which means it must have been originally used on a figure that has yet to be revealed....but that was already tooled BEFORE Mantenna....suggesting it would be released BEFORE him...
...do the math....and that only leaves one possibility....
SDCC exclusive must have been sculpted before Mantenna, although it's reveal is being held back til April...
...and what figure could use a crotch piece designed for 4 legs?

"My favorite Harry Potter movie is Troll."
This would be a better SDCC than Vykron for sure.
very nice. It would be cool to have him.

I was wondering what existing crotch piece they could use for his four legs (I thought maybe TG mis-spoke and meant the loincloth piece, but I didn't recognize it) , but it never dawned on me that it could be from a figure we haven't seen yet. An outright Holmesian deduction; Moddy has to be int he pipeline either as the SDCC figure (VERY likely, methinks) or a deluxe slot like Rammy.
I wonder if the "slip" was intentional to start some buzz; funny TG made the same "slip" twice.
Excellent deduction. I seem to remember back awhile that BCRDuke was hinting about Modulok, which is rare that something he hints at doesn't come to fruition. I wonder if they've been slowly tooling Modulok, a piece or two at a time with other figures, until they get the entire mold?
Somebody said when the Mantenna parts were first leaked that there were Modulok parts in the figure. I don't know if this is what he was talking about. Could there be other parts?
Good point, man !
Indeed Modulok could be avaiable at SDCC with his aternate head and even, some green limbs (in honor to Argentine Top Toys variant).
On the other hand, Matty's version would be the classic one
I think if it is Modulok He will be done as Filmation/styleguide with some vintage look. I just hope like Strobo since it's a NON sub item subscribers get first crack at him with early access on matty a month or two before SDCC so we can have it shipped to our home
Modulock would make sense as the SDCC exclusive.
For the past couple of years, with Marlena (aka Captain Glenn) & Cringer, and also with Vykron, the exact same figures with the exact same accessories were offered through both SDCC and Matty Collector, with the only difference being the pack-out (and in Marlena's case, the bio). So, for people who open their figures, there was no difference with the end product. It was only a problem for MOC/MIB collectors who might want a specific pack out.
Modulock would be perfect for this since he has many possible rearrangements, and since it's a one-off exclusive, it won't matter if he comes out at an unusual price point that doesn't fit within the predetermined pricing of the sub items.
In the name of the Lloyd!
I'm all for it, but he's still going to need new parts. How will they attach the extra crotches and legs? Modulok will need even more new, extensive tooling. I can see him being the SDCC exclusive, though. It makes too much sense not to.
Maybe a sagitar as well
It's your place for Freedom of Speach for everything MOTU, POP, TMNT, , Horror, Wrestling, DC and Batman, and all other properties that are cool.

He would make an awesome SDCC exclusive - Him or Evilseed - any character who has multiple display options.

Well it's pretty obvious we will be seeing a modulak in the near future. They're gonna get their money's worth out of that piece. I think he'd be a strong sdcc exclusive. He appeals to both motu and pop purists.
I would be one very happy boy.

Do we have some pics of Mantenna from behind? Modulok has 6 legs....Mantenna only 4......just curious if the crotch piece referenced could be expanded to accomodate two more legs....
Doesnt Mantenna also have the smaller torso buck we have been waiting for? Lizard Man?
I don't think Modulok is the SDCC exclusive. However I do think we will see him at SDCC this year, as a reveal for 2014!
My top 10 characters: 10/Filmation Ram Man, 9/Filmation Count Marzo, 8/Uncle Montork & Dree-Elle, 7/Kothos, 6/Filmation Mer-Man, 5/Filmation Leech, 4/Filmation Tung Lashor, 3/Twiggets (Sprag, Sprocker and Spritina), 2/Hunga the Harpy, 1/Dylamug.
But Modulok (Filmation) have 3 legs.
To save money on tooling, they'll probably just release a Modulok with four legs.
If/when they make Modulok, he'll definitely have 6 legs! It would be like making Two-Bad with just one head... Heck, they even made Mantenna with four, even though his vintage figure only had the two (fused together)... So why would they cheap out on Modulok.
I don't think they'll reuse Mantenna's crotchpiece, since that only houses 4 legs, but tooling a new crotchpiece is not that big of a deal I guess. The biggest cost is the skinnier buck and legs.
