I want to see a full sized Cringer. Spirit too for that matter. They're too important to the mythos not to be included in the line.

I'm good with the cringer we have. Spirit could be done to my satisfaction with a set of white plugs for the wing holes.
I already like what we have. All my figures are loose so I have them together. If they came together I wouldn't be buying it. If they redo cringer though, I'd totally buy him.
I have zero issues with the Cringer as he is and I think he's the proper size. I can see the appeal but I personally find him to be just fine as an accessory and less of a figure. I would much rather prefer they spend tooling money on Modulok or Kowl.

Fully agree that Prince Adam should have been packaged as a standard Classics figure as he's just as relevant as any other character. I remember being slightly irritated when I received him with Orko as he almost seemed like a halfhearted afterthought that was thrown into the box at the last minute. He deserves greater emphasis than that.
Speaking as a MOC collector it would have been much cooler to have him displayed on my shelf the way my other unopened figures are. However at this stage it seems like an indulgence we can't afford when we still have so many other characters that are owed a release of any kind. Plus I very much doubt there is enough demand to go back into production just for the sake of the packaging.
Either way that ship has sailed and I'm over it. Just saying I would have done it differently.
I don't see anything wrong with the Cringer we received with Marlena though. It serves its purpose in my opinion.

Back to the case in point - it might just be my imagination but wasn't there talk around the Orko/Adam release that said we 'would' see a proper Prince Adam at some point?
Makes sense as ideally he needs a bio.
There wouldn't be enough demand to justify the cost of doing this re-release. But, I agree that they should have been packaged together in the first place.
I dont get MOC collectors. What is the point? You might as well just own the packaging. It looks like a shop.
Fast forward 22 years, as I previously stated I now get more enjoyment out of them being displayed in their package and treat mine like art work. Although I do sometimes splurge and buy a second fig so that I can display it out of package and let my daughter and nephews play with them (which helps keep those demons at bay that tell them to go into Uncle Ken's toy closet and tear everything apart).

Back on topic....
I got my Ram Man today. I can see it was going to be difficult to fit him in a standard size package but I'm not entirely convinced they couldn't have made that happen. I think it was more of a justification to get us to spend more on him, which I don't have a problem doing, I just really wish he were in the smaller matching packaging.

It figures...Adam's just too lazy and unreliable to show up in his own packaging so he ran away from trouble and took a nap in Orko's box!
I keep all my figures loose, so a carded re-issue of Prince Adam and Cringer isn't a priority for me. However, if they tweaked Adam to be able to hold the sword in the back and have the extra articulated NA hands, along with a slightly larger and articulated Cringer, then I'd be more interested. The way things are right now, though, I'd rather see new figures and hold off any Prince Adam 2.0 possibilities until 2015 or beyond. The only thing I'd like to see right now is Adam's bio, it just doesn't feel right that even Tooth Decay Skeletor get his own story!
We already have both in the MOTUC's line. To release them as a two pack takes a development slot away from another character we don't aready have.
Looking to buy or trade sealed M.U.S.C.L.E. 4-Packs. I can PM you pictures if you'd like to trade.

If it was a different variant of Adam, like the Adam in the blue then I'd buy him. Just a straight redo in a different packaging no. Unless he came with something new that I wanted, then I'd buy him, open it, take the extra accessory, then sell/trade him.
I'd like a filmation pink vest Adam... but no interest in taht version of Cringer.
My hope for this... a 2-pack of Adam and Cringer (taking up the 3-pack slot for the year) with Adam in the blue tunic'd comic deco and a new Cringer with better articulation (head MUST be able to turn to the side).
Take it easy,
Looking for: deals on MOTUC Roboto, King He-Man, Meckaneck, Zoar (from Sorceress) and more!
Have to trade: A couple MOTU vintage, GIJOE (vintage 3.75 inch and 25th Anniversary figures and vehicles), Star Wars, Transformers (movie line), and Marvel Universe and a few Marvel Legends, plus MORE!.
Mini comics PRINCE ADAM in blue with no leggings is waaaay at the top of my want list. It would be so easy to do!
I'm still keeping my fingers crossed for this:
Always Expect the Unexpected!
