While the style is "Vintage inspired" it is not meant to be Vintage line 2.0.
Anyway, I'd rather have THE BEST version of the toy that caters to fans of BOTH Eras of MOTU than have straight rehashes of toys that I bought (or my parents did when I was a wee lad.) 9 to 25 years ago.
Regarding the Staction comment: can you pose the staction? Can you pose MOTUC? I think that answers the question why people would want a more 200X inspired (while keeping the aesthetic guidelines of MOTUC) Clawful
