    New Characters As Figures -A Must (NOT FILMATION!)

    ***Remember folks: Filmation characters who didn't appear first in the toy or mini-comics are off-limits***

    Seeing how well King Grayskull sold, Mattel should release more characters who haven't been figures before.

    I know they said they will and apparantly they will do 2 next year, but seeing as this line is a collector line, they should do more and not be scared they won't sell.

    Count Marzo
    Evilseed
    Hawk
    Green Goddess
    Veena
    Calix
    Marlena
    Adora
    He-Ro
    Eldor
    Dactys
    Ltn. Andra
    Geldor
    Evil Horde Roboto
    Tuvar
    Badhra
    Granita

    Chief Carnivus would be easy to make, just use Beastman's body, sculpt a new head and armor.

    Also, I had a really good thought, what if there was a Faceles One con exclusive next year similar to King Grayskull in a Zalacia Tomb?

    I'm sure they are gonna ease into the new characters. Im all for it but they want to get the "classics" out first. Thats the vibe I get.

    The 8 back is a nice way of starting the line, bt I think a lot of fans and casual fans would want something 'new' rather than the same lineup and set order we tend to get.

    I hope we get surprised a lot - in a good way.

    With the way the direction of these new figures is looking, I just don't see how it makes sense to implement MYP or 200X characters anymore.

    its easy, the myp toon didn't look exactly like the horsemen sculpts they were more cartoony, so the motuc versions would be similar to that a la King Grayskull than they would be similar to the 200x style. i think merman is another good example- he looks (with the second head) more like the MYP 4hm style as the horsemen based him off the card backs in 2002, so they will fit in.

    I second that, granted I don't know too much about this particular character but one of the major gripes I had with the original line now that I'm older is how the heck can you have a line of toys with the name 'Masters of the Universe' and only have 3 female figures in the line and only 4 main females in the series? There needed to be more females in the line just to cut down on the Jerry Springer-eqsue holiday and family get togethers.

    Not to get too far off topic but what exactly is the difference between Green Goddess' character and the character of the Goddess from the mini/reg comics anyway?

    These are all new figures that have never been made I would like to see in MOTU Classics.


    Count Marzo

    Green Goddess

    He-Ro

    Eldor

    Adora

    Phravus

    Light Hope / council of wisdom guy with She-Ra's crest. The version from the MVC Comic.

    Illumina

    Shekotti / Female leader of the council of wisdom

    Queen Marlana

    Veena

    Horde Prime (I assume since he was mentioned in the Hordak DVD profile there might be a chance we could get him. Specifically the pre Filmation version.

    Oracle

    Finally a genderless Shadow Wraith from the MYP cartoon. (if we can't have Shadow Weaver, lets at least try to tick the Shadow Weaver box!)

    Man if I had a nickel for every time I explained this one...

    Look at this comic... It's the FIRST minicomic ever done for the original line.

    The artist, Alfredo P. Alcala just drew the Goddess/Teela character with the headdress on and colored her green, probably to distinguish her all the more from Teela.

    She is the Sorceress character I think for all intents and purposes for the story, so she's in essence, a first concept of the Sorceress.

    As a Green Goddess FANATIC, I could be one of her biggest fans... I put this old painting up on my blog. There's a little more info there about her popularity here on the boards.

    Believe it or not, I think I did that first Green Goddess sketch almost six years ago!!!

    Ever since I was a kid, I've wanted a "Green Goddess" as we've called her here at the .org. Apparently I wasn't alone in this wish.

    Above and beyond the others, since she's the only character in the original mini-comics (which the MOTUC so far are based on, style-wise) that doesn't have a figure in any incarnation, my vote unwaveringly goed for:

    The Green Goddess!

    Her and a blonde-haired Teela would make this line a success, even if we never get passed the first year.

    What's awesome about the Classics line, is I'm perfectly fine with them just using Teela and painting her Green.

    However, if they wanted to change some things up with her design, use most of Teela's parts to make her with a sprinkling of new elements, then I've got a few ideas... And they harken back to some of Mark Taylor's original sketches for the Character.

    If you look at these two Mark Taylor drawings... You can see that the base figure is the same between the two... But there are some differences in the head and body under the Snake Head Dress...

    Teela sketch. Goddess sketch.

    You can sort of see that the Goddess' body is more of a simple dress, letting the detail be in the head dress.
    So on Teela, her details are in her chest and body armor, and they could be sculpted as a different piece.

    The trick with that is, you'd have to sculpt the body first for the Goddess, and then add Teela's armor on for her after the fact.
    Just thinking in terms of production. I've no idea if the Four Horsemen plan to do anything like that. *shrugs* But it could be cool!

    I'll officially throw in my vote(s) for MYP's Count Marzo and a He-Ro of some sort... whether it be the '80s prototype styled character, or the 2002 version that was once drawn by Emiliano!

    A lot of these characters are pretty obscure. I don't think we'll see the likes of Geldor very soon because there allready is a HUGE roster of characters they can do. (POP, MOTU, NA)

    Dylamug. Dylamug, Dylamug, Dylamug, Dylamug, Dylamug, Dylamug. He was a planned toy, they said they could do "Tomart" figures, and I need him to recreate the "Shades of Orko" version of the Horde Force Squad. There is no excuses for no Dylamug.
    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!

    I wish Mattel would release more than two new figures instead of the same stuff over and over.

    Does anyone else see a problem with the statement that they will have con exclusives for both San Diego and New York next year?

    There will be the two new never made before figures more than likely. Thus again the majority of the people will be left out.

    Count Marzo and Evilseed, I'll take. Tuvar and Baddrah could be fun as a 2 pack...


    As for Hawk, Green Goddess, Veena, Calix, Marlena, He-Ro, Eldor, Dactys
    Ltn. Andra, Geldor, Evil Horde Roboto and Granita... who are they?
