If you had to pick one, who would you rather have in MOTUC...
Nepthu - Evil Ruler of the Sand Demons
King Tamusk - Last of the Great Sorcerer Kings
King Tamusk...looks more like a 80's MOTU figure...
Nepthu; King Tamusk is alright, and honestly I could pass on either's inclusion in MOTUC, but Nepthu is cooler to me.
Given a thread I started for this particular character in the 'Character Support & Speculation' thread, and a TG reply towards said character in the Matty forums.......
Another member in the Tamusk support thread believes that it's a confirmation of sorts that he is at least planned, and while there's no definite information to be extracted from that on whether he's coming or not, it's a better reply from Scott than the ones he typically gives when someone asks about 'X' character and so forth. Plus, there's that whole "re-worked roadmap" issue, but here's hoping ;) !
Really, I'd vote neither as I don't like most of the Filmation designs but if forced I'd go with evil: Nepthu.
I'd also vote neither but between the 2 I'd rather get King Tamusk in the sub.
Lesser of Two Evils: Tamusk...
Say no to Nepthu. :hmwink:
King Tamusk looks cooler, but we already have too dang many Kings bebopping around.
Why isn't there a choice for neither?

I prefer to go with neither, but if I had to I'd would always go with anyone over Nepthu.
MOTU already has more than enough anglo-european influence. An Egypternian would be a welcome change. He'd probably work into the storyline better as well. Link him to the 200X Sorceress and She-RAmaybe... And he has Sand Demons which can be repainted into Rock Monsters which made all types of Filmation appearances. Nepthu all the way. In comparison Tamusk would be the most boring figure ever.
Now, I am not saying Nepthu shouldn't get made or that he wouldn't look cool. I am sure the 4H would create a really great figure of him. But, I do think King Tamusk is, overall, much better in terms of existing backstory, design, and abilities, and therefore worthy of being made before Nepthu. ;)

Yea, both would require very little tooling.
I voted for King Tamusk......but I can think of 50 characters I'd rather have before either of these two get made!:hmlol:
King Tamusk. Someone here did a really cool custom last year, I wish I could find it. he looked really cool.
King Tamusk is a better design. Would make a better figure, IMO.
One hilarious, ironic tidbit that was overlooked which amuses me is that for all the flak that Orko has received, he's the one responsible for bringing King Tamusk to present day Eternia via The Time Wheel. If it hadn't been for the goofy little Trollan, what would present day Eternia be like? Strangely enough, given that Orko is an "undercover agent" of sorts in the MOTUC bios, it could fit in rather nicely.....
i voted tamusk. but seriously after vykron vykor and grayskull, im good on ancient barbarians.
id still get tamusk of course if offered. i would shed no tear if hes never offered as well
Nepthu was from one of my favorite episodes so my vote goes to him.
I'd love to get both, but I prefer Nepthu because evil.
