    Agreed. One of the hallmarks of MOTU is the wide color pallete (I recall the first national article on the toys back in the day mentioned that very thing), and the NA baddies sometimes got away from that a bit (lots of dull silver, bronze or dull gold). THey took the best elements of the original design and really went to town with it while jazzing him up a bit. He's going to majorly stand out amongst the other guys.

    The Fab Four are really hitting the NA stuff not just out of the ballpark, but past the parking lot and into the next ballpark over. Really great figures just on their own merits.

    ok this will be the first negative post,so her goes:
    I was never a fan of the NA line,and although Dan's videos are great i still don't like the NA line.

    This one for me has too much likeness to the predator and thats probably why Matty went with the brighter green,also the lack of any detail on the weapons doesn't help sell the figure,the bright colours and the dull plain weapons just doesn't do it for me.

    I love your reviews Dan. You have sold me on some pretty un-sellable figs before. I like this one already though, but your review just nailed for me how cool he is.

    Thank you for another great review PD!! I'm really looking forward to this guy! Man…what a vast improvement over his vintage counterpart! The idea is still there…but wow…his armor (especially on his right shoulder) is executed much better! Next month is going to be so exciting!!! Can't wait for your FFM review!

    I like a lot about him, but like other NA figures, he has that ugly dingy gold (almost like green and gold mixed) armor. I don't know what the guys who originally designed the NA figures were thinking, with the ugly color schemes they chose.

    I do like the face, the hair and the skin color.

    Completely agree. I don't care if every other figure gets updated with Trap Jaw legs. These guys are taking a relatively boring and unpopular toy line from the late 80's/early 90's and turning them into awesome figures that I need MOAR OF!

    I love everything about him except the reused Trap Jaw legs. I wouldn't mind if they used the lower half but the upper half should have been changed, the oval slatted part really stands out and reminds me that it's a re-use.

    The Space Mutants are possibly my favourite faction in MOTUC, they all look so awesome, I hope we end up getting all of them.

    You mean the croth piece under the loin cloth/armor? If so, what's new about it? Serious question, as I'm not at home to look at it right now and I didn't notice.

    FFM review will hopefully be up tonight. I'm editing these videos in between fighting off water in my basement from the absurd amounts of rain we've had in IL this week. So please excuse me if I'm a little behind.

    Looks pretty cool. Might be my first MOTUC purchase of the year, which would have been Fangman.

    Yep, black on black was a poor choice on my part. I should know better. Sorry guys.

    Looks pretty good. Don't mind adding him to my growing roster of villains. I just wish his skin was more of a sickly green to play up his zombie heritage.

    No, I mean the clothe/crotch armor piece. You never stated anything about it (that it is new or not re-used).

    Oh...well when I said his armor was new, that was included. I guess I need to be specific.

    Yeah, I think most apply armor to the armor over the chest, not crotch piece. It seems pretty rare that figure get new crotch pieces/wear; they're usually re-used.

    The 4H are really on fire with the NA factions!! From the sculpt to the colors, an impressive figure. Even though the weapons are a bit dull, color wise, its nothing a few dabs of paint won't fix. Looking forward to Karatti. Great review Dan!!

    Personally very much looking forward to your FFM review, Dan!--^ Would like to see how the three figures from this set worked out- removable chest pieces and various other accoutrement, etc. Awesome stuff!

    Great karatti review! On the surface the figure doesn't seem to have many bells/whistles, nor is he in my 'must have' list, but I do like him and another mutant for the NA faction is always welcome. And the accessories are cool as well. The only thing I wish he had but doesn't, is a karate chop hand. Perhaps it was felt this would hinder his ability to hold weapons? In the cartoon he at least affects the occasional karate stance and attempts to use his martial arts skills on various foes, but no attempt was made with the figure to showcase this. Oh well, I suppose that's what an active imagination is for.

    Very excited for more NA!!
    Very much agree! I liked him already, but after seeing him compared right next to the original I really agree with the brighter colors! Pops much better this way.

    HAHAHA...I'll be the second. I just don't get this character...where are his eyes? What's up with his name? ...and I can smell the snoozer of a bio from here. Not a NA fan, so I don't know anything about him. I'm just hoping there is no DOS so he's easier to unload!
