Zanthor, Zodac helper
I'm quite surprised about the absence of a thread about the mighty Zanthor!
Zanthor appeared in the episode "The Golden Disks Of Knowledge" and I know that he isn't an essential but he can be a Travelling Figure.
Check the pictures from the episode:

A raw mockup:
And finally the list of the parts that we need:
New: head, helmeted head, armor and golden disks (realized in the same fashion of the piece of the Dark Star that comes with Strobo)
TRU Zodac: enforcer armor, legs, arms and loincloth
and finally a regular human torso
One of my favorite episodes! Cool idea
Spoke about him in the cosmic enforcers thread. All He really needs is a new head, everything else we already have in other figures. Like it but customizers could just make the head and sell it as is. More important figures ahead of him
His case isn't helped by being identical to the sorcerer Kor.
I'd take him as a cosmic enforcer. We need lots more of those; they're nifty!
OMG! You're right! It's identical! I completely forgot Kor!

Although I don't think there's a chance in hell we'll ever get a figure of either of these guys, if we did I'd prefer Kor - he has a much nicer colour scheme.
I would like him in the story, but not as a figure. Sorry no. Zeelahr is more important or that alien looking enforcer that was a sketch in the 200x
I posted a motu poll and I would have loved to see him in MOTUC toyline.
Zanthor was introduced to us in the vintage Filmation episode "Golden Disks of Knowledge". At Castle Grayskull the Sorceress is disturbed by strange images. He-Man, Battle Cat and Orko discover Zanthor is responsible, a criminal banished to the Phantom Zone. Zodac, attempts to pass judgement on Zanthor, but He-Man decides that if Zanthor truly does want to make amends, then he will accompany him on his mission. At Snake Mountain the heroes find the vault where the disks should be located, but they only find fake disks. Skeletor appears before them, and they are captured. As Zanthor escapes and claims the real disks, Skeletor temps Zanthor to do evil once more!
Zanthor has loads of potential in the Classics line! Imagine him packaged with an alternate head wearing a Zodac helmet in case you want to make a custom figure of him in Cosmic Enforcer mode. Maybe a build-a-figure Zodac chair piece? If I remember correctly Toyguru stated he wanted to get the Disks of Knowledge in the Classics line, and there's no better figure to include them with! I can imagine a limited chase version of the figure as well, one that is semi-translucent much like his ghostly image in the cartoon. A must have!

Trivia: This episode marks the final appearance of Zodac in the Filmation cartoon series. [Referenced from the unofficial cartoon guide written by James Eatock!]
The golden discs of knowledge look like a sweet stack of pancakes.
