    His head sculpt is very nice thanks Dan. Awesome as usual! Arm wings are cool too. Great idea!

    The wing thing doesn't bother me at all either. You have to get him in some pretty unnatural poses for it to look bad anyway.

    Dan, looking at the Fwoosh review, they seem to suggest that a spare Horde Emblem from the Fighting Foe Men can somehow attach to the front of Batros's armor over the red bat symbol. Have you tried this at all to see how (if?) it works?

    Most anticipated figure of 2013 for me! He came out perfect IMO.

    He looks really good, I'm happy to be adding him to my shelf.

    Dan would the neck piece fit under the harness? I remember a few people mentioning that it looked odd on top of it.

    INSTANT MUST-HAVE FIGURE !!!

    Awesome video, and beautiful figure ! I've waited for years to see this character in figure form, and he doesn't disappoint, I must say !

    I'll buy Batros ! He's a priority in my agenda !

    On a side note, I must say that figures which were released these last months (Icer, Clamp Champ, Rokkon, Stonedar, Castaspella, Shokoti) are ALL awesome, and well articulated, and that there weren't many QC issues, which is absolute good news !



    P.S. : I also think that 2013 is probably the year of the bat, on Eternia : we get Batros, Lord Dactus and Horde members (Mantenna, Horde Troopers, Octavia, whose emblem is a bat)...

    Hey Dan, thanks for the review. I have a question, is the red bat in the center a part of the harness sculpt or can it be removed?

    Wow, this is the one guy I really wasn't looking forward too all that much from earlier pictures. He looked kind of mismatched and oddly colored (I didn't remember him from the cartoon, so it was my first time seeing him).

    After seeing your review, though, I'm really looking forward to him. He's a lot more interesting than I gave him credit for, and has some really nice detailing. This review definitely made me glad to be getting him.

    I like Batros's sweet hood, but it looks better on her:

    Still remembers we paid excessive shipping on Battleground Teela. Is confident Matty will resolve the issue and make it right for us.

    This is a really exciting figure. Can't wait for him. Like others, I'll be sticking him on my Horde shelf. Maybe I'll try to stick an extra FFM Horde logo on him with sticky tack, but I don't know if it's even necessary.

    Another great review and figure! Can't decide whether to put him with Skeletor or the Horde...perhaps I'll get one for each

    Looks like a great figure. Though I am still disappointed that his bio doesn't make any connection to the Horde, nor to Lord Dactys & the Speleans. Both missed opportunities.

    I can't wait for Batros, but I'm changing his bio. In my universe Batros will be from an alternate universe where the Horde rule Eternia and revealed to be a corrupted mutated Stratos.

    Seriously though, it heartens me to see you enjoying the line again.

    Looking forward to Batros, he is one of my top Filmation wants, Icer another....so glad to finally get him, and he looks so damn awesome! Just like he stepped out of the cartoon.

    So glad I subbed for the Filmation sub too, and at the same time so glad I ignore the bios....Wiley? Come on....but at least his name wasn't Jacob or friggin Edward, but I feel like he needed to come with a Roadrunner accessory.

    It doesn't attach anywhere, you can fit it between the furry neck piece and the chest armor, the peg on the back of the emblem will sit in there, but it's not attached.
    Recent....Eldor
    Coming....Arrow, Tung Lashor & Bow

    Sorry to whoever i just reported...
    Anyhow.

    I guess if we're only getting 1 figure in Sept. it may as well be Batros!
