    Club Grayskull Tri-Klops support thread

    Personally I think Tri-Klops will be in in Club Grayskull for 2017 since his body is exactly that of Filmation He-Man In Bracer, Loincloth, belt and boot color. All he will need is a new Harness and head with a visor that rotates. Easiest reuse of parts which makes him cheap to make.

    there is hardly any difference to the classics except that it has some extra details and some minor color difference from FILMATION. I would wait to have this at the end of the line as opposed to a must for the next FILMATION round

    Yep, He "almost" uses He-Man's body, but isn't is brief (NOT loincloth BTW) has little circle details on the front like classics loincloth piece ? I guess he should get a newly sculpted brief piece instead of reusing He-Man's, as it is inaccurate to the source material !

    As for his slot in 2017, I highly doubt it. Since Mer-Man, Hordak, Teela & probably Shadow Weaver are pretty much guaranteed due to their heavy demand & popularity !!

    Tri-klops is a must for this line! I have been waiting for years for him to be made. I think he definitely looks different enough to be made. Plus the Classics version costs a premium today, so a refresh of this character is needed.

    I disagree. I could see him coming in 2017. Triklops motuc version is pretty pricey not to mention he was one of the figures that suffers from the white dust qc problem in 2009. He's also a super popular evil warrior and as mentioned very low tooling figure which could help budget into a more highly tooled or completely newly tooled figure like ram man

    Frankly I'm hoping he comes in 2017 with teela, merman, fisto, man at arms, ram man and whiplash

    I would much rather see a MYP or Dc comics Tri-klops. The one we have is so close to the Filmation one already. Maybe they could do a Filmation head pack for existing characters since they are almost exactly the same.

    IF we get more variants I would like to see characters with different designs like MYP or the New comics rather than a character that looks almost identical to the original release.

    You are not going to see MYP or the New comics in club grayskull as it's the filmation animated line this is about filmation animated tri-klops

    Almost exactly the same is NOT the same as being the same. Motuc orko or adora or razz or kowl are filmation so those I wouldn't advocate a do over. Triklops in motuc is very different from filmation from not only the head which is very different including longer hair in the back but different boots in a different color as well. The trunks are incorrect as well Plus the motuc has all those inaccurate details like the doodads on the bracers etc.
    With the creation of the club grayskull filmation accurate toyline, it does allow for the revisiting of characters in 100% accurate looks. No more need to settle. Not to mention the motuc version is very expensive so latecomers can't easily pick him up and the first issue had qc problems like the leeching.

    You want a myp or nu triklops you can get it in Collectors Choice which is now the catch all line for the hyper detailed characters

    I agree; instead of making a tri klops filmation; do some another MOTU He Man FILMATION never made a figure before.
    maybe after a 'bunch' then you can have FILMATION tri klops; or maybe in a toy fair.

    Okay, you win. Just as long as they send me the FILMation-accurate EvilSeed, we can forget all about those "close enough" FILMation do-overs. LoL [^D

    It's accurate to the original cardback art.

    Fine I didn't imply otherwise. But the other poster was suggesting that the motuc triklops was close enough to the filmation version as to question why bother producing him. My point is motu characters had various looks in various sources. The club grayskull line was created to finally give fans of the cartoon a chance to finally get figures based on that property's animated looks. His vintage art/motuc look isn't close enough. If nothing else the lack of simplistic style would have been enough to justify a filmation triklops but like I pointed out earlier there are several
    Important differences

    I agree and would love to have him made; however it seems if there is a figure close enough then kops should not be in the top 5;?QUOTE=degra;3655211]Fine I didn't imply otherwise.

    But triklops isn't close enough--different boots, different colored trunks, different head etc. the characters a popular evil warrior. It's been nearly 8 years since the motuc came out. Very easy to do since only needs harness and head. Everything's else is tooled. And in the recent 2017 club grayskull wish list he consistently was wanted. All that says to me he will be in 2017.
    Probably along with teela and merman which seem like all but guaranteed. Maybe Hordak unless they have him as an out of sub item. Fisto would be another good 2017 choice given Stridor is probably coming in CC.

    If I have to choose I'll go for a 200x TriKlops, MOTUC TriKlops is very close to a Filmation but if they release it as a Filmation I think people will see the difference, arguing over it is not gonna make people change their opinions, I want all Evil and Heroic Warriors remade as Filmation, no obscure charactes, just main A characters.

    Ha.... T-Man..... Your argument is WAY TOO OLD now !!! And its null & void on this new animated line !

    I am not against 200X variants & I love them to the core, but how can you ever expect a mini comic or 200X Tri-Klops in a filmation animated line which is dedicated to the cartoon series ???

    Definitely want to see Tri-Klops in 2017's lineup. I think we need one, it's been a while since 2009 and he's not had one version since.

    Although I really want the vintage mini comics version of Trik, the Filmation one is pretty cool, I like the darker green colours and red boots and the red hair poking underneath his visor.

    As long as this sub sells well each year, I think it's a safe bet that we'd get all the core characters. With that said, I think next year will be hero-heavy. We're only getting He-Man this year and the rest are all evil warriors.
    200X fan? Classic fan? What does that mean? I'm a MotU fan!!!

    I agree which is why I think we will see Filmation Mer-Man & Tri-Klops to round out Skeletors Crew, Teela for sure, Prince Adam, Man At arms or Stratos, She-Ra and a True Filmation Hordak as the subs exclusive.

    I can't really argue with that. I've desperately wanted a 100% accurate mini-comic Tri-Klops for more than 30 years now, and unlike many here who suggest he'd be a simple repaint, that wouldn't be acceptable to me. He would need some minor new tooling to make him 100%.

    And his boots are different as well.


    Also, I LOL at people who think that the MOTUC version is close enough to the Filmation version. That argument can be made for the entire line. What we want are cartoon accurate versions of the most essential and/or wildly different looking characters... Classics Tri-Klops is NOT Filmation Tri-Klops.

    I second this! It's my chance to get him at an "affordable" price.
