    Are there any character types MOTU doesn't have?

    So thinking about potential MOTUC customs I got to wondering about what character types MOTU doesn't currently have. Seems like it's got most types covered

    Animal types are covered:
    Lizard, Snake, Skunk, Cat, Rabbit, Bee, Spider, Bird, Dragon, Bat, Scorpion, Octopus, Elephant, Gorilla, etc...

    Mythological types are covered:
    Vampire, Skeleton / Undead, Medusa, Mermaid, Frankenstein type creature, giants, demons (of sorts), angels, ghosts, etc...

    Profession type characters are covered:
    Wizard / Sorcerer, King / Queen /Royalty, Knight, Warrior, Barbarian, Ninja, Cowboy, Archer, Dentist (ha!), etc...

    Elemental type characters are covered:
    Ice, Nature, Rock, Wind, etc...

    Robot, Cyborgs, and Aliens are covered too

    Sure there are plenty of characters that aren't exactly one thing like Merman who's sort of fish / sea creature and whatever Mantenna is supposed to be, but what all is not present?

    Minotaurs? Dwarves? Guy who transforms into a cassette tape player?
    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!

    Werewolf?

    Can't think of any dog-like, or wolf characters in the animal section, and werewolf would fit into your mythological category too.

    Grizzlor's sort of ware-wolfy, though he's not really wolf/dog like. If you look at the Horde as made up of universal monsters - Hordak / Dracula, Grizzlor / Warewolf, Mantenna / the Fly, Leech / Monster from the black lagoon, Modulok / Frankenstein's monster. Guess that's where the 'Horde Mummy' fits in.

    I want ELVES darn it, ELVES! The only place I have ever seen something resembling an elf in on Filmation. I was hoping that Hordak's race (whatever it is) could be elves.

    POP isn't my favorite era, I'd LOVE some more cultural POP female types. Just make them market them more toward warrior types than fairy tale or super power types.

    Like a viking or barbarian woman with tattoos.
    A tribal African woman...
    Perhaps a female monk.
    Or maybe a Central American warrior priestess...
    A greek type woman warrior, like Sophitia from Soul Calibur?
    A ninja woman?

    You know, I never thought of her like that, but you are right! I may ask Hunter Knight to customize elf ears for my Huntara.

    Yeah, MOTU is sorely missing a wolf character. The closest things we really have to humanoid wolf creatures are the Kulataks and the purple Masks of Power demon.

    I've wanted a wolf character in MOTU since I was a kid and my MOTUC Create-A-Character entry was a wolf character. I'm still hoping to see one in the future!!

    Jumping off from the thematic elements introduced by Ninjor and Rio Blast:

    1970s New York cop
    Scottish poll toss warrior
    Aerobics instructor with removable leg warmer cannons
    Capoeira fighter with Brazilian colors
    Sarcastic 1980s truck stop waitress
    By the ancients!!!

    All awesome ideas! Perhaps they could help us back away from the ways the Filmation She-Ra cartoon handled indigenous/tribal cultures. I mean...it was the 80's, and they probably thought they were being inclusive simply by having such groups on the show, but still...yikes. I just ran through the entire series last fall, and it was awesome but, if I saw one more instance of the magical white woman coming to the rescue of the ignorant brown people, I might have thrown up. Lol.

    Murderor, Evil Eternian Killer
    Real Name: Stabbinator Jones, Esq.

    An ordinary Eternian without special powers, Murderor(tm) realized that nobody on his planet actually used their weapons in combat. thHe took a knife and tried it out once, sadly ending the life of Man-At-Arms'(tm) second cousin's brother's nephew's former roommate. Soon, he was inducted into Skeletor's(tm) Evil Warriors(tm), and while fighting in the Second Ultimate Battleground(tm), defeated Stratos(tm) by shooting him in the face! Murderor(tm) uses his knife and handgun to commit murders for evil!

    The MVC comic Icons of Evil: Beast Man does feature a dog/wolf-like character (apparently the possessive boyfriend of a catwoman, who gets killed by Beast Man just when the werewolf was about to attack Keldor out of jealousy because of (mis)perceived flirtation with the catwoman).





    Then, there's also these canid-looking characters that were featured in a Ladybird book:

    Madrid | Lang It Yourself | Dozens | Angast, Aramesh, Aroo, Azrog, Balina, Basher, Batmek, Bone Throne, Celice, Collector, Colossor, Dark Dream, Delora, Dragosaur, Elmora, Eternos Palace, Garth, Gleedal, Granita, Hexon, Ileena, Kittrina, Majestra, Molkrom, Mortella, Ollo, Orko's Bed, Rabar, Sandipede, Schminivit, Snoob, Sumana, Tamusk, Tataran, Tic-Toc, Valtira, Wolfbat, Yog, Zilora, Zoog

    We have ninjor but I sure would have liked a samurai of some type and those terrible 200x variants do not in any way count.

    The Dwarf type character really is not represented. I'm not saying there need be, but we dont have it. No any of the short character races do not count, I mean dwarves like warriors. Hans Hammer Holder looks awefully good, though not a short person obviously. I'll count him as fitting that sterotype if they ever toy'ed him. Not just high but feel.

    Specifically though I love that MOTU does not have the typical fantasy line up and I'll take the Gar as "Elves" and the twigget as the dandelion eaters lifestyle.

    Personally I'd like a roller derby girl. heh.

    There is no pixie or fairy character in POP, we need a shark creature, (a doctor, who the hell is tending to the enternians wounds? )A firey character or lava character. A dragon master, one who is basically like Callisey from GOT. A seamstress in POP. An explosives expert. And a shapeshift, (imp doesn't count) and false face was only in one episode. Man e faces is just 3 faces, I mean someone who can change their whole body.

    A fully armoured Greek/Roman soldier/warrior (male and female) seems to be missing.

    And the Horde Mummy to complete the usual horror/monster movie characters.

    I'm not sure what category these would be, but someone that changes sizes like the Atom, or someone who uses invisibility. I know some of the mages can become invisible, but someone who's gimmick is invisibility. One more could be a water type mammal character.

    Yeah, I remember reading that issue and being excited for about 2 seconds.

    It's too bad they made him an unnamed, throwaway type of character that gets easily destroyed by Beast Man. MOTU needs a legitimate wolf character that can hold his own as a Master Of The Universe!!

    What about a doctor? I've always thought MOTU could use a medic. And no, Mo-Larr does not count.
