    Mega Construx Roton Discussion

    Hey guys! Here is the final box art for the upcoming Mega Construx Roton play set. Roll the Roton along the floor and the buzz saw spins. It includes approximately 170 pieces, will retail for 24.99$, and will be available Fall 2020.

    Very much looking forward to it! I assume it'll be trivial to buy from Amazon, unlike the Heroes figures (all licenses) where we're at the mercy of brick-n-mortar distribution except when you offer a 5-pack.
    I notice Caucasian Stratos is no longer depicted.

    I forgot Mer-Man was coming with this! Awesome! I'm really digging the vintage-inspired package art for this line.

    Great looking set. I'll be picking up a few of these no doubt.

    These sets look awesome. Count me in for one.
    Coming straight out of Preternia, tribal chieftess and the original WARRIOR GODDESS, SHARELLA!!!

    Sharella needs her day in Classics. She is the only remaining vintage POG character that needs a figure.
    Support Sharella for Collectors Choice!

    My top 5 wants for MOTUC: Sharella, Hunga the Harpy, Sagitar, Snake Goddess & Red Beast

    So the minicomic Stratos is gone as well. Good to know.

    Will the single-stud piece actually shoot?

    Love the art here, and excited about Battle Cat's paws being articulated. I'll be making YouTube content with the line soon, and this stuff photographs so well!

    Oh snap! (see what I did there?) Mer-Man and Roton are both my jam, so this is double exciting for me. The art looks great. Who's doing the box art for these?

    Yeah, after getting the Roton from MOTUC a few years back I love it. I will be looking for this for sure. The latest MC Masters figures have been pretty easy to find in my area. Though some Walmart’s are not carrying them.

    Definitely getting this MC Roton as well. Really liked the original Vintage toy, and this looks like a great rendition of the vehicle.

    This Mega Construx stuff is super fun. I definitely want them all, but is the Roton sold with Battle Cat and Battle Armor He-Man? Or is the Roton sold separately?

    Yep, it's all in one box! Same, too, with Point Dread + Sorceress + Panthor + Battle Armor Skeletor. Here's Kevin_MCX's latest posts about them:

    Okay, good! I'm glad the Roton, Battle Cat and Battle Armor He-Man are sold together as a set! Less individual items to track down! The Point Dread looks like a great set too! I'm glad it will fit on top of the Mega Construx Castle Grayskull. Although, I too hope we will still get the mini-comic Stratos with the Roton set.

    Looks amazing. Fun to boot. First MegaCon Merman yeah? Going to have to give Roton a different pilot. Luckily I always use variants as pilots and this line has plenty.

    Definitely giving the Roton to Skeley from the Wind Raider set. He's just been standing around by himself while lucky He-Man gets a ride to fly...

    Good idea! Merman is awesome, but not who I picture piloting a Roton.

    So much good in this set...my man Mer-Man, my favourite He-Man variant, Battle-Cat! And I never had it as a kid but I love the Roton.

    And of course I love the box art on these. Essential!

    Great question Zargon. The set will officially includes Battle Armor He-Man, Battle Cat and Merman.

    For those wondering, when we showed the first prototype of the Roton at SDCC last year, a comic-colored Stratos was part of the set (as Vladik841 and Ka Rot-Top mentioned). At the time, the set was supposed to retail for 30$. Stratos was removed during the design and development process. The good news is, the set will now be 24.99$
