We just got our most recent Ask Matty answers from Mattel over at PopCultureNetwork.com. When I read their answer to question #2, I felt my heart break a little.
2) If you guys ever do the MOTU characters Slush-head & Mosquitor for the Classics line (which Im quite certain you will do the latter at some point) , do you think it's possible that these figures still have their "inner liquid" feature, and if so, are you concerned about possible leakage?
It is very doubtful they will have water in them. More realistically they will be handled like Battle Armor figures with swappable plates.
No liquid at all? That is a serious disappointment for me.
As most of you are well aware, Mosquitor is my absolute favorite MOTU figure. As a kid, he was the figure I always carried around with me, and it was that awesome blood pumping action feature that made him so appealing. I have been dying to see this guy get the Classics treatment. I always feared that the chances of him having this action feature were slim to none. But after seeing Roboto get his rotating gears, new hope was found.
But no we get this announcement. *sigh* Don't get me wrong, Ill be happy just to get Mosquitor in the line. But the lack of real liquid in his chest cavity is always going to be a bit of a disappointment for me.
So what do you think? How do you think Mattel should handle Mosquitor sans real liquid?
