    Favorite Classics figure based on original MOTU second wave?

    Which figure based on the second wave figures of the original toyline do you think has turned out the best in its Classics incarnation? This is not a vote for your favorite character, but rather the best Classics figure (design, sculpt, colors, articulation, whatever you think is important).

    Please vote for one heroic warrior and one evil warrior.

    Man-E-Faces
    Ram Man
    Evil-Lyn
    Faker
    Trap Jaw
    Tri-Klops

    My original favorites as a kid were Ram Man and Tri-Klops, but as far as classics go I still like Ram Man but prefer Trap Jaw. I don't like Tri-Klops' oversized visor.

    Ram Man is just epic.

    I've always liked Man-E-Faces' action feature, but never liked his overall design. I feel the Classics version is big improvement, but not enough to make me like him.

    trap jaw probably exclusively because he can pull a kronis.

    man e faces because he is the best improvement. better than either intage or 200x version of himself

    Plus I've seen it somewhere else, the exact same release pattern, don't remember where though.

    Here also, although it shows Faker as a wave 2, but technically I suppose due to his late wave 1 release, he could be considered wave 2, but originally wave 1.

    Very interesting.

    Are the waves something fans have defined, or did Mattel ever say, "this is wave 1, this is wave 2..."?

    I seem to remember Mekaneck coming out about the same time as Buzz Off and Fisto, but who knows how accurate my memory is. He only first appears in third wave mini comics, though.

    Mekaneck came out with Whiplash, Clawful, Webstor, Khan, Jitsu, Adam, Orko, Fisto and Buzz-Off over here.

    I chose Ram Man and Trap Jaw.

    Much like today, some of the figures were repeated in the proceeding waves, that way certain figures were always on the pegs....

    It's very possible Faker was in both 1st and 2nd waves, much like Mek was likely in both 2nd and 3rd, but their original waves, were their original releases.

    Tough call; I voted TJ.

    I love them all, but the swappable weapons put it over for me.

    Mattel: more swappable weapons for Trap Jaw, Roboto, Cy-Chop, Horde Prime, and Hurricane Hordak PLEASE!!!
    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

    Trap Jaw is a near perfect figure, and would have easily won this for me if I didn't have such a personal attachment to Ram Man from my childhood. So Rammy for me.
