    ...cheezuz. That...that's bright. And cheap looking.

      I think this figure is simply a flop, from the sticky none movable visor to its paint job.

        I haven't received this figure yet, but when I do, I am going to pop the head and boots off and put it on an extra Filmation He-Man figure that I have. I don't like the look of the buck of this figure, and the skin is too shiny for my liking. The sword looks good. The green looks very bright in pictures that use a flash camera, so hopefully that color isn't as bad in person (and if it is, I will be painting him).

          "The green looks very bright in pictures that use a flash camera"

          No matter how many times that's pointed out, some people just won't Q$#@^^ get it.

          The flash makes it look brighter, but honestly, that forest green on the prototype looked 100x better. That is how I remember Tri-Klops on the cartoon (original cel art be damned!). Most collectors want their cartoon toys to look close to the way they remember the characters on TV. Hell, the artwork of Tri-Klops on the back of the package is dark green! I know there are a few self-appointed experts out there who may have steered Super7 into changing the green from dark to light, but are those people even buying the toys? I know a few of them have said publicly that they don't (and two of them worked on this figure & packaging).

          Now, having said all that, this was a painful review to watch. That he had to use a hair dryer and actually damaged the visor doing so (look at the tears on the sides after he does that), is just terrible. These are essentially bootleg toys. I'd really like to see Mattel end this now, as their deal with Super7 isn't working out very well.

          I have to agree with Black Zodac here.

          However I love to see S7 drastically improve their QC and stick to better design decisions with their next batch of MOTUC figures, otherwise they might not be able to keep going with this line for much longer!

        Did I miss it or something, but is the bright armor removable or not (glued)?

          I thought I read at that other place that it’s glued.

          Thanks for the confirmation. I'm glad that I didn't invest in the Filmation line from its inception.

        Wow, the comparison between the two figures in this video is quite jarring. That is one bright green they chose.


        One thing I find kind of odd is with all the complaining of the bright green, the stuck visors, the glued on armour, and how many people seem to hate the new thinner buck, I would have expected to see more of this figure on eBay or marketplaces.
        I was hoping to get one on the aftermarket because I believe I can fix him up myself, but I’m only seeing unopened figures on eBay for $100 plus shipping, and not a single one in a forum marketplace....

          Hmm, I wonder if people were able to cancel or return their orders for a refund with S7, or maybe lots of customers haven't received their orders yet to offer them on the secondary market?!

          Patience is a venture Croc, I'd say wait for a little longer and you might be able see these figures on eBay for reasonable prices.

            One thing I’ve seen, despite the quality issues, Super 7’s figs have had strong secondary value. I think Hawke will break that trend though, lol.

              The thinner buck is more Filmation accurate, which for this sub-line is a good thing. My visor was fused, but fixable. Others have lost their figures trying to fix him... (Which we shouldn't have to.)
              I don't mind the green too much, but it isn't that accurate.
