    I'm glad to see that Clamp Champ is coming. Now it's time for me to pick up a vintage Clamp Champ...

    CLamp Champ is one of my all time favs. I might be more excited for him then Rammy.

    I am really pumped to because while there talent shows on monsters skull faced warriors and crab people i think the Four horsemen really show there talent on there human head sculpts and the humans often end up being my favorite charactes sculpted

    Unlike Snake Face, there is very little to sculpt, so I'm going with 100% certainty on Clamp Champ in 2013.

    Exactly! I hate the way it looks on Fisto. It's the only thing I don't like about Fisto. From a mix and match or customizing standpoint, it limits display options.

    It's my understanding that the 5th Horseman sculpted both Fisto and Bow's face. If that's the case, they are EXTREMELY good on human head sculpts. I'm sure the very same person made the upcoming Jitsu face as well. I'm looking forward to another badass sculpt for Clamp Champ.

    Bring on some 200X inspiration!!!

    I really hope he gets that belt!

    Has there been any speculation that Clamp Champ is Sir Laser Lot? They're both mentioned as being the future Man-at-Arms. Maybe Laser Lot's curse has been broken, but as a result, he can't create laser weapons anymore, so he develops an unhealthy obsession with clamps!

    Cool, thanks!

    I guess I'll have to Keep Reading the Bios™ to see what the deal is with Clamp Champ's time as MAA.

    I really want to see what happens to him after the war in the 3rd mini-comic, maybe after He-Man and She-Ra left the planet, the task of rounding up the rest of the bad guys and the death of Duncan still fresh in his mind, Clamp Champ was unable to fulfill his duties as Man-At-Arms and retired from being a Master. That's when King He-Man sent for Sir Laser Lot, If Clamp Champ was to be in the "He-Ro: Son of He-Man" faction I would understand a small roll, maybe going into town for supplies and helping out a villager. Always being asked to come back by the Masters but with a heavy heart he always say's no. Even when asked by Queen Teela. For me it would be so cool if Kay-La(from He-Ro Son of He-Man) is Clamp Champ's Daughter. Seeing his daughter join the ranks of the Royal Guard, may be the one thing that would helped him get back into action with the Masters from time to time.

    Glad he's on his way! Now I wish I was excited for more than just Champ Clamp himself. I never had 'em but I always thought he was cool just 'cause of how he was portrayed in the minicomic: catching an arrow out of the air and then rushing Ninjor and coldcocking him in the FACE. That was enough to sell me on the character...now I just hope he comes with something other than the clamp! I know it's his thing, but PLEASE Horsemen, come up with something interesting for an extra!

    Now for the clamp itself: Boy I hope it clamps. I mean it's so huge as it is, there's no reason to leave out the original action feature. I mean it would just be so boring to have such a huge accessory with room for a feature, but then have the clamps just open and close manualy. The feature won't get in the way if it's in an accessory!

    I don't think I ever read the minicomic back then but I always thought MOTU lacked enough human characters. When Clamp Champ came out, I was pleased there was finally another human character in the mythos.

    Ya know, I was thinking of that as well! I like that fact that he's a plain 'ol human with amazing senses and strength. He's sorta like the Batman of MotU, in that he's just SO well trained that you'll have a heck of a time getting the drop on him. It's great because there's few like him; Fisto has his big fist, MAA is a tech guy, He-Man is superpowered, and Ram Man is very unique in build and body. Champ Clamp is simply a human with his body and all his senses trained to the peak. I love that!

    EXACTLY, which is why I dig him!

    I envision him as what he was originally intended to be: The Heroic master of Capture (and not the next Man at Arms) I see him as a physically peaked Eternian / human who is the "Bounty Hunter" or as I have canonized him the Eternos Prison Warden. Since he doesn't have any powers, he relies on his training (from daddy Dekker) and his superior physical training & knowledge in capture to maintain the evil of Eternia captive, in which at times he joins He-man and crew on adventures when needed.

    Hopefully, they redesigned that large holster on back to a much smaller one that can hold his clamp AND MAYBE EVEN THE VINTAGE INSPIRED FISTO SWORD. Oh yeah, the should also drop the lower metallic torso and make him an all flesh colored torso figure.

    I can see that, but my first thought was that with that level of detail, it was the same guy who sculpted Fisto's face. Either way, the head makes a TON of difference for me - it turns CC from a guy who's a near-total parts reuse into a figure who actually looks like a fresh, distinctive character.

    I don't know if it's the same guy as fisto and bow, it might be but the style feels different fisto and bow have the same feel and clampy and rammy have the same as eachother (to me) but different thant fisto and bow.

    ah well I still like it, not what I pictured but it's very good.

    I love the added details to the armour too to separate him more from fisto, and adding the mini clamp and staction backpack, makes the figure feel more new than not too. wish he came with a belt piece like fisto did. but that's just nit picking.
