I'm not to versed on the Conan universe but do have to say that the sculpted features on the Thulsa Doom and the Rexor figures here look pretty good!

This line could work if Super7 follows this line with the following characters:

  • Valeria
  • Subotai
  • The Wizard
  • The Snake

Also need a 3 pack of Conan, Valeria and Subotai in the camo-war paint.

Yeah cool, I like 'em, but the same old story, more money than I would like to spend for something that comes from super7.

When was the first time we saw those? NYCC? Well as I recall the prototyeps looked way better.

Wait, what happened to Conan? I thought they were making a Conan figure based on his more iconic look (costume), now they changed him to the Gladiator Pit Costume?,  I dont think anyone wanted this version before the other one, heck I would agrue that from all his costumes this is probably the least intresting one just because he literaly wore it for just one scene in the begining (maybe just above when he wore the thulsa doom's cult robes).
IMO this is a really bad move from Super 7, specially since the accesories listed to come with this figure dont go with this version at all. 
Seriously from Conan Line, one would think the one Conan figure in this wave would be the most iconic version of the character (the one they showed before), I dont know why they decided to go this way (Super 7, always finding a way to disapoint), might be that they couldnt secure Arnold's Likeness Rights since the figure looks nothing like Arnold, and this was the only look they could afford to get for now. The rest of the figures look ok, a little bit worse than the first prototypes they showed but they're still ok, but that Conan is looking awful.

I like that they could get James Earl Jones' rights but honestly as much as we all wanted a thulsa Doom figure, if they couldnt afford both Arnold's and James Earl Jones' right in the same wave I would have prefered a good Conan figure than Thulsa, give us Thulsa in a second wave I wouldnt mind, but for a CONAN THE BARBARIAN line to have such a bad Conan figure is just dumb. Sad thing is that with this decision I really dont think this line will do all that well and we probably wont see a second wave.

Losing hope on Super 7 yet again, and now Im not very optimistic on Super 7's Thundercats line (having a bad feeling yet again that theyll find a way to screw it up before we can get the complete Cats core team once again)

With how bad conan looks and the way they decided to go with making a Gladiator Conan before making the Conan with the look he has during most of the two films I really doubt this line will do well and sadly we most likely wont see a second wave. If I were Super 7 I would have done Conan right in the first wave along with Thorgrim Rexor and The Wizard since those three characters would most likely not cost them that much in likeness rights, and the in a second wave do Sobutai, Valeria, Thulsa Doom and another Conan (like this Gladiator one or the costume with the full pants and leather shirt), but for a first instalment that will probably dictate wether or not this line goes on to make such an underwhelming Conan Figure is a really bad idea in my opinion.

It sucks cause I would have totaly suported this line otherwise, but Im really weary of doing so now cause there is a good chance Ill be left in my collection with 3 sort of good villian figures and a terrible Conan figure, with no hope of getting the right Conan.

The others don't look all that good, but Thulsa Doom looks great.  I have a feeling it won't look anywhere near that good when it's released, but I sure hope so.

I'm surprised that Super7 can make figures with such realistic details, I mean technically they aren't released yet but they do look really impressive.

The final product, son, the one you get is the one that really matters IMO, and I doubt the final figures will look as good as those prototypes. With super 7 you can expect the unexpected.

Conan does not seem as good as the prototype. The rest is ok.

Yeah that is correct but we can hope for the best, + they I remember when mentioned they gonna do some improvements and adjust to new factory, maybe they can pull it off.

Yeah,  it could be, but in truth I would not expect much from super7 they tend to "make-up" the truth. That said, I am really contemplating the possibility of committing to this line, usually their stuff is an easy pass, but I am really liking these figures.

Thulsa Doom looks great so far but the rest look meh and in my opinion they ruined the best thing about that Conan which was the headsculpt.

In all honesty I just can't see that many people plopping down $45 a figure for Conan. I love the Doom figure but just not a big enough Conan fan to warrant the cost.

I agree, moreover, right now I am in the dilemma of jump in or not. If they were some bucks cheaper, I guess I would have already bitten the hook.

I wonder if we will ever see this version with the furry trunks:conan-ultimates-powercon-2019-super7-14.thumb.jpg.ef81b5ea80b5c0750b7075867cbdec7f.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

For now the "iconic movie pose" version is fine.
