    I swear he had some kind of other gun or something at some point in the cartoon.

    Ok apparently there was an episode where he had some kind of crazy ray gun thing.

    This thing.

    Only thing I'd change is to give him a darker blue paint job like the vintage toy. Oh, and alternate vintage toy eyes as well. Otherwise, amazing!

    AWESOME!!!!!! Mantenna has been my most wanted ever since Mosquitor was released so he CANNOT get here fast enough. Also, with the way he turned out, he "may" end up being my favorite MOTUC's figure in the ENTIRE line!!!!!!!! TBD.....

    Thanks for the review Dan, as always!! I always look forward to them and appreciate your efforts in putting them together

    - - - Updated - - -

    I do hope we get his white bloodshot eyes released down the road as another display option (although I love the yellow ones too). The puckered lips would be fun too to give more of a Filmation look

    Mantenna looks great! I never owned him from the vintage days but I am happy to finally be getting him in Classics.

    great review as ever Dan. I have a question.

    The "pop out" eye stalks seem to be curved, can they be put in the sockets "upside down" or sideways causing them to stick out at different angles?

    Thanks

    Excellent review of this wonderful figure. Thanks a lot Pixel Dan! I can't wait for Mantenna. So much going on in this figure but the legs are probably my favorite part.

    Mee too, but the figure is TERRIFIC!
    Articulation-wise the legs are a beauty, just think on how many pose you can get from him

    I'm pretty sure some custom vintage pair of eyes and maybe a filmation mouth piece will come out eventually

    Mantenna is AMAZING. Turned a really goofy looking figure into a masterpiece. Can't wait to get him!

    Totally agree!! Up there with Mer-Man, Fisto and Kobra Khan as the best figures in the line IMO and definitely a candidate for Figure of the Year!

    Very pleased with how Mantenna turned out. The legs being four separate legs has to be my favorite feature. It looks masterfully done and I can't wait to get him along side of the rest of the Horde members. If I can just get Scorpia that will really seal the deal on the Horde for me in so many ways! Sub up people.
    It's all about being polished when it counts!

    One of my Vintage faves; a character done spot-on perfectly!
    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

    The Four Horsemen at their absolute best, right here. All of the Horde are great, but this guy kicks it up a notch. This may just be the figure that defines this line.

    Mantenna being one of the very few 200X figures I liked, I was glad to see when they went with less of a Vintage look and went with the Staction / Filmation cues.... I am not a fan at all of 200X, but Mantenna was one of the few that I actually thought looked awesome....Mosquitor and Evil-Lyn the only other two.

    I see the Filmation cues in the eyes, and overall color scheme and skinnier guy approach, and the 200X cues for the rest of the main overall appearance. I can't wait for him, he's also one of the only two Vintage figures I still have.

    I am so glad they didn't go with the Vintage look and colors, he looks so much better with the Filmation / 200X look, so much like he belonged in the cartoons instead of the toyline.
    Recent....Eldor
    Coming....Arrow, Tung Lashor & Bow
