    Top 5 MOTU Characters

    It's late. I'm bored. So don't mind me. And I'm sorry if this has been posted a thousand times before. I'm still new here. If you can provide a link for a past thread like this I'd love to see it.

    My top 5 and why (in reverse order):

    6) Roboto - mainly because of the figure itself. Those gears inside his chest mesmerized me. That and I just recall him being a well made figure. I seem to remember that I never had any trouble standing him up.

    5) Two Bad - Also made the list largely due to the figure itself. Not so much for his portrayal on tv. And he was just so damn colorful. And who didn't make him (them) punch himself (each other) in the face and think it was funny as hell?

    4) Stratos - Always thought Stratos was cool. Believe I had the figure before I saw him on tv and when I finally saw him on tv it only confirmed that he was indeed cool.

    3) Mer-Man - Not really sure what it was about Mer-Man that captivated me. Maybe because I love the water so much?

    2) Faker - where do I start? All I know is I saw this figure at a store many, many miles away from my house when I was a kid (we use to have to travel 40-some miles to somewhere just outside of Washington, D.C. to do any decent Christmas shopping. I still live in the same county however everything we need is now within a 10 mile radius). Anyhow, I saw Faker and I was like, oh my God, its Faker. I recall thinking that I should inform my mom that this MOTU figure that we never see down our way is here and we need to get him but I thought, Santa already knows this. Well, believe it or not, to this day, that is the LAST time I have ever seen Faker in the flesh. I kid you not. Anyway, the fact that he was so elusive and that the only time I saw him on tv - he wasn't blue - he looked just like He-Man (with the exception of his eyes) puts him right up there near the top of my list.

    1) Zodac (Zodak) - Number one just because of the mystery that seemed to surround him when I was younger and the contradictory portrayals of him in regards to the back of the packages and his role on tv. Had me scratching my head but that was what made him special and why he's my #1. That and he looks pretty darn cool too.


    I know that's six but I just couldn't narrow it down to five.

    This list is subject to change without notice!

    So what's your top 5? Or 6? Or whatever?

    Hi here are m favourites:

    6. Thung-Laser -> I love the toy. The colors are fantastic, the thung-actionfeature is great and I like his feet which look good and give him a good stand.
    5. Tri-Klops - Evil seeing everything! Gammaray vision and a big green sword.
    4. Trap-Jaw - I like the idea with his jaw("Bei▀er" James Bond? )
    3. (Hurrcan-) Hordak - Great looking Figur I like his golden armor and of course the hurrican feature. Also I like his character design a lot - very powerful, "technical power based" and sarcastic leader of the Evil Horde
    2. He-Man - simply the good guy needed as Skeletors enemy
    1. Skeleor - Overlord of Evil and Destruction - My all time favourtie! I really love the original softhead toy - man he has a skull and he is evil Skeletor is just great!

    I am not gonna count He-Man and Skeletor cause it's obvious they are the best ones specially the BA versions.
    So here is my list:

    1-Fisto
    2-Clawful
    3-Whiplash
    4-Tung Lashor
    5- Tri-klops

    Alrighty...

    5. Stinkor

    4. Tung Lasher

    3. Teela/Evil Lyn

    2. Mer Man

    1. Hordak
    ( and not the watered down Princess of Power snorting Hordak...I love the dark, truelly evil, Leader of the Evil Horde from where he ORIGINALLY came from... Masters of the Universe!!! Hordak's mini comic was always my favorite. And I truelly don't like any of the comics after the 2nd series, but Hordak's kept me hooked. It was and still is my favorite MOTU mini comic, and the reason Hordak is my favorite MOTU figure/charactor!!! Princess of Power, YOU turned OUR Hordak into a joke.... How Dare You!!!! )


    Has anybody else noticed, but it seems almost everybody has more bad guys than good guys on thier lists... what does that tell you?

    Either that we've all got some serious problems, or the bad guys are just way cooler!

    In no order

    Saurod - he's a lizard that spits freakin' lightning bolts. Possibly the coolest concept to come out of MotU

    Tunglashor - this guy was the only one that I kept after giving away my classic collection at age 12.

    Snout Spout - I have a soft spot for campy and tacky character types, lol

    Dylamug - the only one of those old Tomart proto-skethces that I desire a toy of.

    Adora - she's in because she was the sexiest character in the franchise, even if she was technically PoP
    People who say certain characters should never be remade is stupid. Throw rocks at them.

    I support Filmation characters for MOTUC! Let Mattel know it's worth their while to get the rights to those characters!

    Well I really like it! I had fun times playing with him and the Clash of arms mini-comic really sold whiplash to me.

    I won't go as in-depth here as I did over at the She-Ra boards...but here ya go. The top five, in order:


    5 - Battle Cat: The idea of a green tiger with yellow stripes sporting red armor and carrying around a Barbarian is a little far fetched, don't you think? Yet, between his Cringer mode and his nifty action figure, I think he pulls it off very well.

    4 - Teela: She'd be higher up on this list if she ever managed to get to find out about her heritage in some interesting way and act on it. Instead, she's stuck forever nagging Adam to be something, and fighting off robots. There can be no denying, however, that her secret destiny makes her more interesting than your average sci-fi female accessory.

    3 - He-Man: Sure, you might think he deserves the number one spot, but he doesn't. He's just not as interesting as the next two. Still, he'll be forever remembered for raising a sword and blasting his clothes to bits.

    2 - The Sorceress: Her foxy curves, her crazy outfit, her history - it's all so cool and eccentric! I don't think you can help but put her in your top 3. I'd like to put her in the number one spot...but there's one other character who is just a little bit cooler.

    1 - Skeletor: He's just an icon now, perhaps even more so than He-Man. Because his personality made him so memorable on the show. Because he was "banned" from appearing in France, lest he scare the kiddies. Because Castle Greyskull looks like his house. All hail Skeletor!

    EDIT: *reads thread* Aww shoot...were we talking about the toyline? Ugh. Okay, whatever, sticking with my list.

    Stinkor- this guy went with me everywhere...i loved the smell! (and i like skunks!)

    Mer-Man- i fantasized as a kid about living underwater and having gills, so fish men always rule. (the ultimate bath toy!)

    Trap-Jaw- his design is so eye catching! and that jaw is so fun!

    Stratos- another great design, and no weapons to lose made him a sandbox must!

    Buzz-Off- the creepy factor of a bug-eyed bee-man will always appeal to me.

    5) Original He-man. Great simple design that everyone loved!

    4) Clawful - giant claw!

    3) Fisto - Always looked really cool

    2) Trap Jaw - tons of action features!

    1) Hordak - I just loved this guy a ton. Looked so evil and menacing!
    Right or wrong, buying a sub tells Mattel you want more MOTUC figures. Not buying does tells them you don't. Don't let MOTUC end early because you might not like their marketing strategy! Plus polls show you won't regret subbing!

    One of the true fan minority - happy MOTU fans!

    In no particular order:

    Prince Adam, 2002 version. I could sympathize with the guy because he feels real to me. He's a 16-year-old slacker who's suddenly had this big role dropped onto him, and he does well, but he also questions himself occasionally. He's not insta-perfect like He-Man is.

    Evil-Lyn. Intelligent, nasty, powerful. If it's not to her advantage to stay on your good side, don't turn your back on her. She has her own agenda as opposed to being yet another lackey.

    Orko, Filmation version. Well, duh. I root for the underdog, and someone who's been chucked to another world and his power all but taken away is pretty underdoggy. As a character he has a lot of potential. A pity MYP pigeonholed him as an annoying, childish twerp.

    Dree Elle. Because. Just because, OK?

    Roboto. He's fun to write for. He reminds me of a cross between the Tin Woodsman and HAL.
    Castle Numbskull
    Masters of The Universe stuff you won't find anywhere else.
    Thank goodness.

    It doesn't matter how many of these posts there are - they will always be fun and very hard to answer!

    5. Mekaneck - Colorblind scout! (Yes, colorblind! Who wears silver fur boots with blue spandex? Love it!)
    4. Man-at-Arms - Armored guardian!
    3. Beast Man - Orange gorilla!
    2. Trap Jaw - Cyborg pirate!
    1. Rio Blast - Space cowboy!

    As you can see, I'm easy to please and prefer the simpler MOTU. Stinkor was an honorable mention because I love his colors but Beast Man has orange covered. MerMan is cool but I always hated the lack of cardback head. Fisto is awesome, as is Two Bad and Webstor. Later figures I like include Clamp Champ and Scare Glow.

    Really do not care for the 2 spinners, the 3 movie figures (though looking forward to the MOTUC versions) or the Euro 4 (except Megator, who I wish I had).
    QUEEN ANGELLA! BLAST ATTAK! Buzzsaw Hordak Dragstor Flying Fists He-Man GWILDOR!
    Lazer Light He-Man Lazer Light Skeletor MERMISTA! MULTI-BOT! NINJOR! Peekablue
    Perfuma Rotar Saurod SPINNERELLA! SSSQUEEZE! Terror Claws Skeletor Twistoid
