    MOTU Classics Shokoti Video Review by Pixel Dan

    Alright gang, Shokoti is here!

    Quick note: I'm about to head out of town for the weekend with limited internet access, so I won't be able to answer any additional questions until I'm back home Monday. Sorry in advance!

    She seems like a very nice figure.
    Ask not for whom MOTUC is made, it's made for thee.

    If you have to disclaimer your like, then you don't really like it.

    The darkling should have at least had a plug in for a flight stand, even though one isn't included. That part is a bit of a let down, but the figure itself is beautiful.

    Here's hopping we see Plundor soon!

    Damn....bring on more Filmation figures!

    Filmation, Mini Comics, NA, 200X....alone could stretch MOTUC along, not to mention, how many Vintage & POP stragglers could be left after 2015 (if we get that year), also factor in new figures....damn shame the line has come to where it is....there are so many characters left.

    2014 needs a Filmation sub....also a POP add on too would be nice. Offer a NA sub, and if that manages to go through....good for those that want it.

    If you had an extra Shokoti, and an extra TK Doomseeker stand, you could drill out the bottom of the extra Darkling and use the extra TK stand.
    Recent.... Arrow, Tung Lashor & Bow
    Coming.... Mermista
    Wanted.... NA She-Ra, Double Mischief, Jitsu....
    Considering....
    Needed.... Dragstor

    Awwwww yeah!!

    Thanks for getting this up so quick!!!

    I gotta say, i think i like her better without the cape...i may change my mind once she's in hand.

    I do wish they would go back to the Cpt. Glenn short leotard...atleast its not as bad as Octavia's.

    PD...im sad you've taken out the Filmation clip in the intro. That ding at the end was always one of my favorite parts of MOTU. I loved that you had that in there...it just made it so much more He-Man to me. But, they are your videos.

    Thanks for the review. Love the close ups on the face/head.

    The "skirt" is a disappointment. While it looks good on the figure, the proto non-skirted version looks better.

    Enjoy your trip Dan & thanks for getting this out.

    She looks great, always loved her. The Darkling is just fantastic. I wish we could see her fangs as they were one of my favorite parts of her design. I'm so ready!

    I'm beyond excited for August. Seeing this review of Shokoti along with the photos you've posted on FB have totally over shadowed Clamp Champ and NA He-Man arriving in the mail today.

    Thanks for getting this up so fast! I can't wait for her!

    I'm not even that fussed about the "skirt" piece. After a second go at Octavia I have figured out how to shape it so it looks more leotard like.
    It is spelled "Crita", not "Critta". Misspell her name and Crita will knock the "T" out of you!

    Also...get her into the line!

    AWESOME! Man, she looks great! I do wish she would have gotten some sort of weapon or wand or something, but oh well. She looks so good that she can carry the package without anything to hold. Very much looking forward to this one!

    Well, she's got a pancake posterior much like Teela and Evil-Lyn, but otherwise, she is a good looking figure overall.

    Amazing figure. Man, August is going to be a great month. Love the Darkling pack-in. She'll be getting my Staff of Avion as her staff.

    Holy cow ! It seems that August 2013 will be the best female figure month since the beginning of this line ! Shokoti is a stunning figure ! And an evil one, at that !

    And guess what ? SHE HAS A BOOT CUT !!! Incredible, but true ! Thumbs up for that !

    I'll now have to get enough money to buy her AND Castaspella...

    The only negative point I was able to find is that she has the old "holy" ankles, which explains the weaker ankle articulation point. Why can't Mattel just give the new ankle joint to their female figures !?

    The darkling looks really cool too.

    But I'll have to give Shokoti a weapon or a staff, because she definitely lacks an accessory. This gets me a little concerned about the Filmation figures...

    All in all, Shokoti seems to be a pretty solid figure that will add some variety to our collections.

    God forbid you use something that you're not using to sell....I'm surprised they allow all the fan made music videos using the songs, and ones that show the album art.

    Why can't Mattel or the 4H...whoever, get the Female body right? The made new thighs for Frosta, who, has the only correct looking backside....the others still utilize the flat butt thighs and a simulated hump, which without Thighs like Frosta, might as well not even be there, plus they eliminated the boot cut. I'm surprised Shokoti has it, but the only reason she does is because of her boot style, it was just easier to keep it for her, otherwise it would have looked like ass.

    Anyway, that will be a damn good month, She looks good, and for a character I could have lived without over my more wanted ones....I'll gladly take her since she is coming, and she reflects one of my childhood memories....as does EP Randor, Fang-Man, Icer, Batros....hell yeah, bring the Filmation!

    I can safely say, that what these new Filmation figures represent is just as powerful at bringing back memories as the ones that actually had figures back when. Too bad they didn't have Vintage figures, but at least they do now.

    Now, imagine what a G1 accurate cartoon version Masterpiece Ironhide and Ratchet will do for my nostalgia bug....I seriously hope Takara can get to those guys....but not before giving me Mirage & Hound....and maybe Jazz first. I can't wait for my 280Z brothers and Sideswipe I have PO'd....as well as seeing how cool Wheeljack will look.

    Nostalgic and iconic versions all day!

    I have wanted Shokoti in figure form since the first airing of her classic TV appearance so August will be a very happy month. She turned out great and the Darkling is so cool.

    I think she looks amazing - near perfect - maybe a spell casting hand and a spell effect....oh, that's right - that got used up with Casta - either way, she turned out great. The Horsemen clearly like 'coloured' women
