You're right, I was just crossing my signals. The one at that link will come with Snake MAA.

But he *still* looks amazing. Cannot wait to get him in hand. If he had had an articulated jaw, he'd be absolutely perfect.

i suspect he'll still sell fine... though i'm really disappointed in how they executed that figure in the end.

so, in thinking about lay ze's he-man prediction for SDCC, i figured i'd move the chat to a more appropriate thread... cuz i don't see them "wasting" the all-important SDCC slot on a he-man variant... plus, since we're getting TP he-man now, it would really seem like a shoehorn to me... i predict it'll be king miro. i have a couple reasons why, but i look at it like this: he's never been offered before, he doesn't have to have too much new tooling, and he definitely doesn't carry the weight of a "regular" cast member, so SDCC helps insure his sellout. i could see them packing him w/ the skeleswords, because those could have been his blades that were discarded after marzo dumped him abroad and keldor picked them up to literally take the swords of his father to get some justice. just my supposition though... and i believe we're supposed to find out later this month, so if the topic interests anyone else, place guesses SOON! :wink:

Damn Dayraven, I love your idea and wish it would become real.

My guess though would be a Filmation chracter. I was thinking after last years, maybe a King Randor filmation style with infant twins?

Exactly.

Even if Clampy is off saving the universe or dead by that point (or whatever other excuse) it's still really lame storytelling, especially when you already had Clampy cast in that role.

This is not change for the better, or change to allow for more figures (TG's evergreen BS apologist line for the crappy writing). It's change to brown-nosingly glorify Johns' character.

Geek cronyism is still cronyism, which is always lame.

Yeaaah... I'm just going to ignore that bio. I'm okay with him being just a random dood. I think I'll make him a bad guy on my shelves --- especially since I already consider Draego-Man a good guy.

Seeing him in package now I'm not really digging this figure. I know we already have Roboto, but I kinda dig the idea of him being a robotic knight!
