    Classics will always win due to articulation but as far as this Ram Man being to scale, I always remember him being much smaller than He-Man in the cartoon and that would make the vintage line actually be "to scale". The classics line makes him out to be like Juggernaut. Am I all alone on this one?

    I tend to agree.Slightly shorter legs,not quite as massive.That would the scale I would prefer.Nonetheless he looks awesome.

    Agreed!

    I'm absolutely loving the MOTUC Ram Man!

    I shortened one of mine to make him a little more FILMation accurate.


    I do have another at the standard height, but I think he absolutely ROCKS in this dwarfish height. Still wish the head sculpt had opened eyes. To me the eyes can definitely make or break a figure, and honestly it's the only downside to this figure.

    He's a 9.8 in my book!

    As a sculpt, I've always admired the 200X style. The details and the proportion of his anatomy are the best IMO, however as an overall Toy figure (Great sculpt and articulation), the MOUTC Rammy is the best rendition we have thus far.

    Classics by far! I always liked the character but the 80s toy wasn't very good and the 200X was still annoying having a big molded lump of plastic for legs that were lose too. Only thing I don't like are his eyes looking closed.

    I love all eras of MOTU, and while I greatly prefer the 200x designs of some characters (Evil Lyn, King Hsss, Buzz Off) and the unique details of other 200x versions (Hordak, Clawful,) if we're talking toys the classic versions win 99% of the time due to their scale and articulation. It's that simple.

    I'm still not a huge fan of Ram Man's squinty face, but the rest of the design is perfect. Classics is the best Ram Man ever to date.

    I understand why people might not like the squinty eyes, but I actually love 'em. I think the new MOTUC version is aces from head to toe.

    Classics Ram Man for me. He is the version I have wanted for years. I really am not a fan of 200x designs, period. Too much 'stuff' on them making them look generic as hell...like some 6th graders designed them. I prefer clean and simple designs of Filmation and the comics.

    Classics version all the way for me too. Rammy never did a lot for me, but this classics version has entirely changed my mind on him.

    I'm sure I'm in the minority, but not only do I love the squinty eyes, I *love* the alternate head - perhaps even more than the helmeted one (even if the lack of neck is a bit dodgy).

    I'm sure you're not alone, but I personally like the Juggernaut look. I preferred the 200x concept of Ram Man in this regard too. Anyone that goes around smashing into rocks with his head needs to be a large, thick skulled, doofus that's roughly the size of a house. Not a...."small person."

    Without a doubt--Motuc Ram-Man When I put him on the shelf last night he made things look more complete. Mot sure why ppl
    think he's too short--I think he was the perfect combination of vintage and 200x and his height and size look great next to everyone else Definitely in the top 5 of my favorite Motuc figures so far

    CLASSICS RAM MAN, 200X was a beautifully designed figure. But other than and between the characterization of him in media after the minis; being a chubby massive oafy-type character, I wasn't too happy. I always wanted the powerful and aggressive one from the mini comics... AND THIS IS IT!!!

    I was more referring to the 200X figure in regards to how we saw Ram-man in the 200X cartoon. He was a huge guy in that series, but if I remember right there was some "rule" in the toyline that no one could be taller than He-man. It really hurt figures like Beastman and Ram-Man for me anyway.
    It is spelled "Crita", not "Critta". Misspell her name and Crita will knock the "T" out of you!

    Also...get her into the line!

    Yay, I forgot about these comparison posts. Yeah, I gotta go with MotUC version. I love the original for being a little battering ram, and I guess the new one can't do the same as the vintage...but he can sure do WAY more damage if you throw him!

    Joseephus! I'm so glad to see the return of hese threads!

    MOTUC is definately the Winner here. (In my humble opinion.)
    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

    If we are talking about the retail lines, the figures needed to have a consistent scale because of price and playsets.

    We have three different canonical body types for Ram Man now: dwarf (Filmation), huge and fat (200X) and now regular-sized and wide (mini-comics, cardback and Classics).
