    It appears that MGM was a distributor for the film in the USA in 1987. The worldwide theatrical and home video rights (as well as international TV rights) to a majority of Cannon's product are owned by MGM. However, theatrical and home video rights to most Cannon films made after 1987 are now with Warner Brothers (these include Masters of the Universe and Little Dorrit.) I took a look at the MGM website, and they have no mention of Masters of the Universe in their vaults.

    You know, just the other day I was looking on Ebay for a Tom Paris figure to customize. The problem is this: Are there any Tom Paris figures that would be close in size to a MOTU figure? No one wants a Kevin who is ripped with muscles, HAHA... but it would be good if he was the right height.

    I think they should really go after the rights for Lubic! He is the #1 priority.

    1. Lubic
    2. Karg
    3. Skeletor (regular and golden god)
    4. He-Man

    Would if I had a choice since I am getting the subscription if he's part of it I have no choice. Best believe though when I get him he's as good as sold. "Legend" reject

    Movie charcacters

    Does anyone else want to see the following figures in MOTUC, from the 1987 film? I feel we could tie them in with the Cosmic Key and Marlena being from Earth. I know we will eventually and hopefully get Gwildor, Saurod, and Blade, but I woul dlove to see the film represented. Any ideas if they need the studios rights or the actors rights?

    1)Lubic
    2)Julie
    3)Kevin
    4)Flogg
    and movie variants of He-Man, Skeletor, Teela, Duncan, Sorceress, and Beast Man.
    Good Journey

    Mattel has told us that these characters are not available for the MOTUC line, unless the rights are eventually granted.

    The only characters they can make from the movie are the three that had figures in the 80's, which are GWILDOR, SAUROD, and BLADE.

    BLADE is on my top ten list for this line... Just try to buy one of him off ebay for under $40... just you try!

    Blade is a must. Had that figure as a child. A must for the MOTUC line.

    Blade and Saurod maybe, Gwildor NO - I just don't like him, thought he was annoying.

    Saurod and Blade would be nice. If it were possible for them to get the rights to the He-Man, Skeletor, Beast Man, Teela, and Man-at-Arms, I'd like to see those too. Gwildor I really don't think I want. Probably wouldn't buy any of the other characters either.

    I still have my old Blade, Saurod,and Gwildor figures,but I doubt I will buy them again if they are given the Classics treatment....I still find it odd,that out of MOTU's large roster of characters to choose from,they had to create these guys for the motion picture!

    Zero intrest in the movie stuff, probably would rank the lowest with me for source material. But I do Like Blade he's just cool looking badguy to me, and i think he fits in fine with the line.

    Not big on the Saurod, but i do think the horsemen could make it pretty cool.

    ANYONE but Lubic! I've stated before that Out of all the different MOTU related storylines, Lubic is the one character I would not buy given the Classics treatment. Worst character in the movie. Even worse than Julie, Kevin, and Gwildor combined.

    There is no need to make any of the earth characters, they have no special powers, would never stand up to any to the snake men, evil warroirs, horde, so why even waste a figure on them. the only characters worth making are gwildor( although not much playability with him, do a two pack with orko give him revelent bio something to do with three towers) blade and Saurod. The Only Character i would love to see made into plastic is Karg, he should have come out as a figure back in the eighties.thats the only character Mattel should spend any time pursuing. Screw Varients, they waste a month where we can get a figure that we haven't gotten yet, if anything make all the varients you want once and only once all the characters that exist are made, otherwise this line will suffer the same fate as 2002 line!

    Lubic, Karg, He-Man, and both version of Skeletors would be awesome. They should go after the rights to for them.

    I like some of the movie designs.

    The Skeletor custom created by one of our Orgers is magnificent:


    I kinda liked He-mans outfit too:

    I can't wait for figures of Gwildor, Saurod, and Blade.

    I would love to be able to get Lubic, Julie, and Kevin, as well as movie costumed Teela, Duncan (even a gray repaint, although I would prefer the silver Snake Armor version of MAA), He-Man, and Skeletor (both black cloak and god versions).

    I don't care if I never get Karg, though. He's the only MOTU character I just don't care for much. I even like Imp more.
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    Would you like a Movie Skeletor with this sword?

    Would it be a great variant...

    Where is Skeletor Movie Sword?

    As we can see here Skeletor had a Sword in the 87 Movie... where is it today?

    Yes I would like a TRU 2 pack style of movie He-Man and Skeletor. I'd even pay the $60 for that! Really! If they were a full new sculpt and had all the details with their weapons, it would be great.

    I'd really like to see Mattel license out to one of the companies that does the sword replicas. Like how we saw the G.I.Joe swords, they could do Skeletor's staff and He-Man's sword from the cartoon/classics line first. After that if they sold well enough to do so, then we could see the movie version of both of those swords. Follow that up with the 200x versions. From that they could start doing other weapons if all of it was still selling well enough.

    Yes. Very much yes. Ideally I'd like them to take a page from the recent Wal-mart Iron Man 2 figures and give us interchangable hands as well. While I don't need it on every figure, for some reason it seems like a must IMHO for movie figures.
    Matty, Great Black Wizard figure please!

    I'd prefer no movie characters or designs at all, thanks.
