    MOTU Origins Panthor Official Thread

    Panthor was just announced via an interview with Pixel Dan for a Spring 2021 release!

    He's not coming flocked because it would mess with his articulation.

    I suspect it has more to do with profit margin than whether or not it can be done with the articulation. That said, I can live without the flocking. It's not a deal breaker for me.

    They just revealed that they will be releasing both flocked and unflocked versions! Flocked version will apparently be a Walmart exclusive though.

    I will only buy flocked Panthor after it is confirmed that the flocking isn't held on by water soluble glue. I'm not falling for that one again.

    Okay, now that I've seen the flocked version- I want the flocked version.

    I REALLY hope that the skin tone is a perfect match between standard retail He-Man and Battle Armor He-Man. Otherwise, that vintage He-Man head won't do much good on the regular He-Man body.

    Yes, agreed. I hate the new Skeletor and He-Man heads. That Skeletor head looks like it should be on Robot Chicken. Not a fan of the Evil-Lyn head either.

    Ngl, I don't mind the laughing head as much anymore. Like, we have a vintage head, an angry head, and an Alcala head. I really hope we get a Filmation head in the future, as that'll round out all the heads people would want on vintage Skeletor (outside of maybe a movie head).

    I just can't believe the flocked Panthor is $40. I want the flocked version, but not that much! I think I'll take my chances on finding one on a rollback or clearance.

    I agree, I can't believe that price is right, either. I'm hoping it's a type and it was supposed to say "$29.99" (24.99 would be better, but I can see the extra five for a lower-run, flocked item).

    I thought the price was off, too when it first went up during the panel. After they talked a bit about the packaging also having a soft, velvety feel to it to mimic Panthor's flocking, I understood that the cost was driven up by the packaging element.

    Here's my quick thoughts on the matter:

    A) There should only be one Panthor and it should be flocked
    B) I don't buy that flocking cost $15 extra
    C) "But we also flocked the packaging!" (which I don't think anyone was asking for) is not a valid explanation of justification for this ridiculous price point

    Wait until the folks who leave stuff out and not in case or cabinet. The dust will stick to this flocked box like crazy if its what im thinking that it is. I have books and movie cases that are made that way and it is hard to get off.

    The box isn't going to actually be flocked. It will have a finish that makes it feel like it's been flocked. I dont know what the finish is called but the most common thing I can think of are dust jackets on hardcover books. There is no way flocking is $15 extra. Like I said above, I think that was a typo on the slide.

    The flocked one is much much better, don't care about price, it will be mine.
