Agreed. Had he been redesigned for MYP like Count Marzo, he might have been awesome. As it stands, if he appeared in the Classics line, it would be this generic Filmation take. I want interesting and unique looking Filmation characters like Strong Arm, Shokoti, Enchantress, Icer, Nepthu, Oona, Aran, Ileena and Lord Masque.
Love the character and episode, but don't see him as a upcoming figure unless he got some redesign or at least comes with a crazy assortment of accessories, like that snazzy flying carpet.
I would happily buy Malik if he came out.
