    What other Big Jim Creatures or other pre-MOTU Mattel lines' moulds ?

    Besides Battle-Cat/Panthor and GyGor, which other pre-MOTU Mattel moulds were re-used for the original MOTU line?
    I heard chatter that Gre-Gory may have made it as a giant Horde Bat (his blood pump feature was certainly re-used by Mosquitor) or that the Boglins may have been MOTU swamp creatures before becoming their own line. Thoughts?

    I thought that I read somewhere long ago that Trap Jaw came from a big Jim character too, or am I mistaken?
    Top Ten MOTUC wants: Sagitar, Sssqueeze, Great Black Wizard, Fang-or, Dragstor, Peekablue, Skeletor's Skeleton Warriors, Despara, Evil Seed (all era) w/Odiphus, Illumina w/Sleetah

    you're totally right: it was iron jaw (sadly, never produced).

    Too bad I didn't know about these back in my wee days, some extra animals for He-Man and co would have rocked! Probably easily found at the neighborhood yard sales too.

    TG mentioned recently that after a line of DC's New Gods figures fell through, they incorporated some of the elements into MOTU. Outside of perhaps Zodac getting turned into Metron Jr., I don't know what else he meant by that.
