    Cool figure. But I do not picture this being the all powerful Unnamed One. I mean really, do you see King Hsss taking orders from him? I never had a clear vision of what he would look like. I was expecting him to have more of an imposing and powerful appearance. If this is what he looks like I would be more afraid of Demo-Man than I would of the Unnamed One.

    Other. This is pretty much what I expected from the hints that had been dropped ... but I'm not impressed with it as the Ultimate Evil of the MotUverse.

    I actually like it. I was hoping they would use this to tie in Blackstar, but knew it was a long shot. I like him a lot more than Horde Prime.

    After all the speculation and hints, this makes total sense. I think I like it. Remember, if you are powerful enough, it doesn't matter what you look like. Nobody though Walter White looked threatening either.
    Congratulations! MOTUC 2015!

    There is absolutely no defending this. Unless you either:

     
    A. Already hedged your bets and stocked up on this figure and need to unload him. B. Like Trollans and are excited to have tons of fodder bucks to make customs with now.


    I already posted my thoughts here. http://www.he-man.org/forums/boards/...=1#post3405580

    I am not going to go fanboy bananas, but I am going to be resolute with my opinion and wallet. From Cyber Monday till now, the MattyCollector model and Scott Neitlich has lost me as a future customer.

    I voted he's OK.

    I don't give a thing what the bios say anyway so, no biggie.
    Maybe Marzo as an archenemy was the biggest thing to happen to Mekaneck, but as far as Marzo was concerned...it was Tuesday.

    I had no expectations to be elated or disappointed with the figure and it certainly delivers on those expectations. So I voted he was okay...

    This was my impression of the "secret figure" concept in the last poll about this figure. The reveal is exactly what I expected.

    It'll be on my shelf. But I feel Scott's promise that 2014 was for A-list, major characters only. This thing is a continuation of a dead concept... and it's not even based on the original Son of He-Man pitch, it's just stuff he's making up. Cute as it may be, this isn't what we were promised in 2014.
    My 2016 Wishlist:

    2.0s: HE-MAN, Teela
    Filmation: KITTRINA, Vultak, Dylamug
    200x: VEENA, Prahvus
    NA: CRITA, Staghorn, Quakke, Butthead
    Concept: RED BEAST, Tony Guerrero He-Man

    Simply judging by what we can see in the package, he's an okay figure at best. Maybe the 2nd head and other accessory will make me like him more, but from what I can see, he's pretty meh and not what I'd expect as the new big bad of MOTU.

    My final verdict concerning the Unnamed One will come when we get to read the full bio and hopefully see him in upcoming mini-comics. If there's good media for him, I will probably warm up to this version of the Unnamed One.

    When it comes to bringing mysterious characters to life in plastic, I much prefer Horde Prime over the Unnamed One.
    Proud supporter of the Snake Men.

    Most Wanted: Slave Girl, Crita, Lizorr, Tyrantisaurus Rex, Great Black Wizard.
    Most Wanted Filmation: Lord Masque, Ileena, Granita, General Sunder, Teela, He-Man, Skeletor, Hordak head.

    No Slave Girl? Watch us hurl!

    A barbaric world without slave girls? That's truly barbaric!

    I think he makes a really great-looking toy, and now kind of puts Orko to shame. It harkens back to that great detail on the 2002 Orko. Plus it looks like he's got a really awesome wand, a fun magic-blast hand attachment, is packed with a comic, and has two other things in there that we can not see. People complaining about the price have me scratching my head here. He looks bigger than Orko and is sporting some cool stuff in this package. It's a fun surprise. And while I was fully expecting a "Snake Mountain Man" type of concept for the character, I can't say that I'm disappointed here. I can totally see this little devil whipping up a spell that creates the Snake Men, and yet don't necessarily think this fellow is the be all and end all of Evil Things in the realm of MOTU. Sure, he's probably one of the first baddies, but in my mind Skeletor will be the one to go down in history as causing the most trouble and posing the biggest threat there had ever been. It will be neat to see how this all plays out, bio-wise. I'm sort of into the idea of this guy resurfacing in the Son Of He-Man era and perhaps forcing Skeleteen and He-Ro II to put aside their differences (as others have speculated) and join forces to go head to hat with this "new" cuckoo threat.
    Must-Haves in 2015: Lord Masque, Quakke, Sagitar, Negator, Peekablue, Granita, Dragstor, Crita, Prahvus, Classic Toy Costume Catra Vs. Starburst She-Ra

    I think he's a cool looking figure, just not what I pictured for the Unamed One. I think when they planned this figure someone said, wouldn't it be funny if? It was probably Toyguru, which is not a dig, he probably thought that. And hey, NON of us were there, so non of us can blame his intentions. I say this because I feel people will be lighting the torches soon. Again, I think it's a really cool looking figure, just not what I imagined.

    Not what I was hoping for but then again this is off the idea I had no idea what it would be. I do like the previous post contrasting Walter White cause it is true Evil comes in all sizes but in the case of the Ultimate bad in a MOTU; I think I just wanted a little more.

    I've posted before that YES I think it's cool; Orko now has a nemesis and on the omega level of power.

    It will be real interesting to see if Pixel Dan receives a review sample now for damage control...

    I'm disappointed, my expectations were for something impressive and imposing. Unfortunately while it's not a bad figure it in no way invokes what I would perceive as impressive.

    It isn't funny anymore.
    A supreme evil character should be like Horde Prime...
    This thing can't even be like a filmation Mantenna... this thing is like Imp... it isn't evil, it's just a pain in the neck...
    The Unnamed One should be somethin' like this mock-up:

    He's okay as a villain. But I wouldn't have made him the Unnamed One.
