Multi-Bot - Evil Robot Of A Thousand Bodies
Multi-Bot is a member of the Evil Horde, he is a two-headed robot composed of multiple body parts which he can reform at will into thousands of different shapes. He is a robot equivalent of the character Modulok. Can transform his hands into a variety of weapons, which include an ax and a hammer. Multi-Bot is a creation of Modulok, although as is the case with Modulok, who can change into numerous different shapes, used to confuse his opponent. Modulok's shape-changing abilities adds a new dimension two his character by being able to transform into a tank-like vehicle. Multi-Bot's body parts could be combined with those of Modulok to form an extra complex creature called the Megabeast. He consists of many transformable body parts, with enough to form two separate robots. Whereas Modulok is a highly intelligent inventor, Multi-Bot is merely a robot duplicate of himself, but with more changing abilities.
Multi-Bot was created by the shape-shifting Modulok, as a new weapon for Hordak to fight the Great Rebellion on Etheria. He was sent to destroy She-Ra and the visiting He-Man. Seemingly unbeatable, because of his ability to rebuld himself, He-Man and She-Ra throws the magnets, brought by Sy-Klone, at Multi-Bot before any further reassembling. The magnets mess with Multi-Bot's program, who can only follow his secondary program to destroy Hordak. When Hordak leaves to Etheria and Multi-Bot follows him.. Later, Multi-Bot accompanies Modulok on his plan to use the Weather Wheel to create Black Snow in the Frozen North, to create a war between the Snow People and the Selkies. She-Ra has a brief battle with Modulok, but is defeated, along with his master, Modulok. When the Horde travels to Eternia, Mult-Bot was nearly destroyed by a Monstroid discovered in the sea. Multi-Bot is one of the many to serve the Evil Horde in the Second Ultimate Battleground.
Commentary From Clawful94: Multi-Bot appears in She-Ra: Princess of Power by Filmation, the spin-off series from He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. Since the show's first season was produced while his figure was still in development, he appears in the show with the same image as the mini-comic, almost unrecognizble from the toy.Like Modulok, he was a challenge for Filmation's animators with their limited budget, unable to afford to produce multiple animation cels to represent numerous different shapes. Therefore, like Modulok, he was given one general shape for the show, but whereas Modulok's shape-changing abilities are only ever alluded to in the series, the animators were more adventurous with Multi-Bot and show him moving his body parts. Multi-Bot was voiced by Lou Scheimer in the POP Filmation Cartoons. An apparent prototype redesign of Multi-Bot was made by toy sculptors Four Horsemen Studios for the 2002 relaunch of the MOTU toy line, but since the line was cancelled before the Horde could be introduced, the character was never included. Given the design's lack of resemblance to the original character, it has been speculated that this was actually intended as a brand new character, and the name of Multi-Bot may have been merely reused from stock as a working title.
