    Top 5 Most Wanted Minimal Tooling Characters

    Like the title says, what are your top 5 characters that have minimal tooling (i.e. About 85% of the figure is already tooled).

    Here's mine:

    1.Lodar
    2.Prince Dakon
    3.Green Masks of Power Demon
    4.Purple Masks of Power Demon
    5.Garn (Mini-comics)

    Club grayskull fisto just needs head, harness and fist
    Club grayskull prince adam total repaint
    Club grayskull merman just needs head and harness
    Club grayskull triklops just needs head and harness
    Club grayskull whiplash just needs head and harness

    Could have squeezed. In club grayskull versions of shadow weaver and entrapta since straight up repaints. And sorceress too she just needs a better face sculpt and a soft goods cape. Club grayskull frosta just needs a new paint deco and head

    1. Toy-design She-Ra (new skirt, although I'd also be open to Starburst accessories)
    2. Toy-design Catra (new skirt and forearms, although I'd also be open to Scratchin' Sound and Shower Power accessories)
    3. He-Ra (prototype She-Ra) (new breast-plate and head-sculpt / tiara)
    4. Joya (ala Bubble Carriage Maiden) (new torso, skirt and head)
    5. Granita (new torso and head)

    General Tataran; ideally he would be shorter than the rest of the figures, but I could live with it if they just used the current buck and just made a new head, armor, belt and weapon.

    Yes! I want that sub To go on for a loooooong time! But I hope they give Adam a new vest gnat would allow him to hold his sword aloft, as the current one's shoulder pad(?) would get in the way.

    Lodar is top of my list
    Then I think most of the Galactic Guardians could be done with minimal new tooling so:
    Kayo
    Vizar
    Spinwit
    Nocturna
    MOTUC NA Most Wanted: Kayo, Vizar, Hoove, Lizorr

    I'd be so down for an entire mini-sub made up of minimal tooling characters, as long as it was a good mixture of characters from different factions and eras. Perhaps the sub exclusive could have a little more money spent on it, by way of an incentive?

    This being Club Grayskull, I would be less concerned about the shoulders, and more about the fancy belt the existing figure wears (with all that cross-hatchng detail that CG-ers seem to despise). While NO FILMation-retread figure would ever be in MY personal wishlist, I would ALSO secretly wish for a Prince Adam Re-Do to get the missing/omitted? Sword Holster strap on the back of said vest. This would still make him a very low new tooling figure, they might even spring for a smirking (or perhaps sleeping??) second head? :^)

    This would be a great list. We need some more Galactic Guardians.

    I also think Artilla could be done fairly easily with some creative parts reuse from Multibot and some others with more robotic looking appendages.

    1. The Demon (MEF mini-comic) - re-use the Gygor buck, with Granamyr wings, only needs a new head
    2. Kex Queen - standard female buck, Beast Man whip accessory; new feet, tunic, wings and head.
    3. Muck Man - onky the head and mud gun accessory are new parts
    4. Garn - new head, boots and vest
    5. Snake Mekaneck - new neck extensions and head.

    There are definitely many low tooling figures available if Mattel want to continue growing the MOTUC roster at lower production cost, including King Miro, extra snake warriors, Red Beast, Beast Lord, Grey, Tug O War, Sharella, Man Crystal, toy Catra, Mind Beast, Prince Dakon, Lodar ... some of the zany 1988 concepts. Ample options to create room for high tool figures such as Karg, Dylamug, Hunga, Lady Slither, Ra-Jar, Robowoman, Jetpak and Granita.

    This list is going to be for just Club Filmation really since the Collector's Choice characters I want all require a few new parts.

    1/Filmation Mer-Man
    2/Filmation Teela
    3/Filmation Tung Lashor
    4/Filmation Tri-Klops
    5/Filmation Sorceress (I mean you have to have her in the line considering the packaging is of Castle Grayskull afterall!)
    At this point I just HOPE for Dylamug and Hunga the Harpy!

    I can't think of 5, but I can think of 1, that would require little, to no retooling. Lizard Man II.

    I think Lodar, King Miro and the Masks of Power Demons could be done very easily.

    Kittrina, too, if her tail is made part of the armor.

    Depending on how much is armor vs. figure sculpt, Kayo, Vizar, Nocturna, Spinwit, Lizorr, Hoove and Quakke are probably on the simpler side.

    -Kayo: He'd be new Head(or heads if he doesn't get a removable helmet) Armor and weapons. Everything else we Have to make him.
    -Lizorr: He'd be pretty much a new Torso Armor, weapons, and head... (Worst Case Scenario put Darius' helmet on Squeeze's head)
    -Butthead: New Head and Armor. (If possible new thighs, but I'll take NA Skeletor's as a compromise just to get him)
    -Staghorn: If Kobra Khan, or Leech got a one-off 100% new Sculpted Torso, I don't see why we can't get one for Staghorn. The Torso, head and Weapons would be all we'd need for him. (and I'd take him on the normal buck if it was the only way to get him.)
    -Master Sebrian: New Head, New torso Overlay on the Club Grayskull Evil Seed buck with Modulok thighs and feet and Lizardman shins

    That's 5 out of NA's missing 12... Spinwit, Nocturna, Vizar could also be made with very little new pieces needed...
    FINALLY!! GLIMMER IS IN MY SHELF!! Crita is coming... Now I NEED SONGSTER! The Awesometastic Bard!

    can't believe no one's yet mentioned:

    DREE ELLE AND MONTORK

    use: existing Orko body and flight stand
    Need: New head for Dree Elle. Glasses and beard for Montork.

    See Montork doesn't even need a full head just sculpt the glasses and glue them over the existing Orko head. There may be an impulse to give Dree Elle a new more feminine body (and I wouldn't object if they ended up doing so) but looking at the cartoon her robe is not form fitting so the existing Trollan buck works fine.
