    I really want Rotar and Twistoid, but I want them to come with detachable legs/torsos. I don't really think of these guys as being "little guys" at all.

    Same. I would like these guys to be able to stand next to the heroic and evil warriors

    I know I'm in the minority but I'd love more Trollans. Gwildor too.

    While a regular three-pack of mini figures would help get a lot of these characters out of the way, I could see Odiphus being a pack-in with Prahvus. Other than Stinkor, who's obviously out, that's the character he'd fit with the most.

    I really love that we are getting into the little guys more. I love the line but one of my big complaints was size difference. Yeah we have Gygors & Tytus & such, but for a long time standard figure wise it was guy buck, girl buck & Orko. Now with Ram Man, Two Bad, Dactys, Modulok , Kowl & Loo-Kee we are getting some size diversity!

    My must have little guys- Imp, Razz, Gwildor, Rotar, Twistoid, Odiphus, old man Marzo, Grr, Robot Knights & cat form Catra if she counts.

    I would like these, but could live without- Clobber, Syrax, Uncle Montork, Dree-Elle, robotic Screech

    Not opposed to- Twiggets, 1 Widget, Mr.Slime Pig (for laughs), Relay

    Hope I never see- Caz

    Definitely with you on that, and most could use Orko as a base. I'd love a three-pack (or more) of just them.

    I honestly think these characters would do great at retail. I think kids would like them. They could be a companion brand to MOTUC and would bring money to the line.

    I'm shocked at the amount of people who want legs for Rotar and Twistoid. I don't understand this. Is it because of Emiliano's concept?
    Making them full sized figures means they would take up a two coveted 2014/15 final figure slots that would otherwise go to non vintage MOTU characters. Do you really want that? Besides that, given them legs kinda take away what makes them unique (insert DC comic Barbra Gordon comparison here)

    I don't know if I agree with that happening, But yes, I can see that happening. I just don't see them selling well.

    Themed multi-Packs perhaps? Trollon, Twiggets, Widgets, Scientist and "He-Woks" (Pelleezean & Kowl's race. Owlian?)

    I just don't see them getting to the vast array of characters that NEED to be done this way unless they replace the beasts/giants/Deluxe figure slots...Putting them WITH full sized figures will probally mean less weapons...That a bad idea IMO.

    Except for that, that's a good idea and would make a killer secret bonus pack in!

    The more I think about this, the more I desperately want it.

    Well his concepts do make them interesting figures. I think removable legs is the way to go for both options. Personally I would prefer Dare and Skeleteen figures than Rotar and Twistoid but if we have to get them, why not give us legs.

    I really want Rotar & Twistoid. They'll give the line a little diversity. I also like the colors especially on Twistoid. As for having legs. I wouldn't mind either way. I do think we'll see 1 of these guys in 2014. Just a hunch.

    The idea of giving Rotar and Twistoid detachable legs was floated around on the forums before Emiliano posted his awesome concept sketches. I had posted a poll on the subject in November of 2009, and a few other artists have posted pictures of what Twistoid and Rotar could look like with legs. You can also find a few custom action figures of Rotar with legs. The poll shows that over 90% of fans on the Org are in favor of legs, so there is a strong interest in having the figures appear that way.
