  • I have to say I've never been totally into Roboto. The original version–and the MOTUC version–have an extremely toy-ish, Playskool look to me. He reminds me of a corn popper.

    This is the rare case where I completely prefer the Millennium version of the figure (although if the MOTUC version does turn out to have two swappable hands, that will be pretty awesome).

  • Ah yes, one of my favorites.

    I love both versions of him, and can understand why the MO2K version is preferred as more "serious." That said, while the MOTUC version in absolutely closer to the original, I think the larger lower jaw is a nice alteration to make him look more aggressive.

    I would have preferred if the gears were done facing to the sides, however. It might have given the Horsemen a chance to keep the moving gears while preserving the ab hinge.

    Playskool is a perfect description. The colors and clear plastic with colorful stuff inside are also quite reminiscent of a Fisher Price corn popper push toy!

    Still, I've always thought he was one of the cooler figures that came out after I was done with He-Man, just for being a robot and somewhat of an anti-Trap Jaw. This one here is the only loose one I've seen without the purple wear/discoloration on the silver. I at first thought the Classics version had goofed by forgetting it!

    He's among my most anticipated Classics, probably because he is a little silly. He had a touch time being truly awesome back when Valkries and Transformers were hitting big.

  • @Poe: You are not alone… but he looks pretty sweet EVEN if he has that huge duck bill… Now to figure out how to make a custom plate to have a hybrid Roboto…
