    Trust me Seraphyn... It's hard to tell that it's rushed.

    Great work indeed, especially the cybernetic control-interface He-man is using there, interesting looking.

    Hey, what does the ackronym stand for btw?

    So don't be upset at me if I post this other pic, I know I already get my chance to do it but I'm a diehard fan of the origins, a cultist of the Grayskull Museum and an Alcala whorshiper, so I just feel we were forgettin a big part of the work that Mark Taylor did on our gorilla.
    I don't want to monopolize this thread , just like to share my dreams with others who could feel it as their own.

    After all, for Battle-cat there is Panthor, so....

    After seeing all of the incredible art I'm just thinking of scrapping mine before I even post it. It definitely would never compare to the art pedestal that has been already set.

    Don't be daft, it's not really about the art. It's about the design and concept surely. Go on, you've still got till tommorow

    Pred, i hope it isn't too late for my entry.

    I had to go to a friend's housewarming party this evening. I didn't plan to be gone until this late but my wifey got a lil' tipsy so I blame her.

    Anyways on to the show.

    2-Bad: Awesome hairdo!! I like that you've given him a unique hair and beard! did you know that hominids ( **** sapien etc) are the only apes that have beard? That's pretty cool, if he's actually related to Eternians or some such. That's what I personally would have done, that he's actually related to the line of humanoids that eventually became Eternians, including He-man and Randor! Would be pretty cool if he had the power, wouldn't it?

    Pretty nifty idea to combine the look of Beastman and Battle Cat's armour for him, btw.

    Jafari: You made it!! Glad to see you've got that beastly touch! ^^ Intriguing backstory indeed! And you seem to overall be one of those that went for more of a character than steed/vehicle angle for him. He's really a very flexible concept isn't he?? You can play him as all sorts of things, since he's an ape.

    Kent: Not too late! The deadline was moved to today, so you made it.
    And that's one BIG battle-harness! 0_0 Lucky he's a strong fella'. I really like the new golden paint-app btw. Looks better than the yellow.


    Well lads, today is the deadline, so if there's still someone left, you've only got a few hours left before the doors close on the big, hefty, ape. I will most likely ask Monikasvo to do the poll, since I've currently got a deadline for a fanzine I'm a part of, so I don't think I'll have time to do the poll.

    Okay, it if wasn't already obvious, determining a winner (other than us viewers) for this contest is impossible!

    That is an incredible new idea, Seraphyn! I love it! I kind of gave up on vehicles for MOTU, but THIS is a whole new beast! It MUST be Spydor's nemesis!

    Predabot: Yes, you are correct in my interpretation of Gy-Gor, as I had been rolling around the idea for this character's bio in my head for a bit... I think it was the red cape from Roger Sweet's description that made me think of this character as more of a regal beast than just a steed.

    gatchagrey: Thanks for noticing!! When I create for these contests I try to come up with a complete story, & one character bleeds to another, in this case, a cave-girl!!
    Here's a better image of my art of her below, because I know she is small to see in the bio for scale compared to her big friend...
    Thanks for the feedback guys...

    All right lads, the deadline is up!

    THE CHALLLENGE IS NOW CLOSED!

    I, or Moni, will be putting together the polls tomorrow.

    A huuuge thanks to everyone who has participated! ^^ Never thought the giant yellow ape on ritalin would be so popular. He's too cool! ( well, now at least)

    And so are you guys.

    Cyber-suit G.Y.G.O.R. is fantastic!! I've gotta say though, it's a bit "Power Rangery", but I don't think it crosses that line. If there was any justice, this would be the new official version of Gygor, and it is WAY better than the original steed concept.

    Hell, I bet even with He-Man inside, you could still build-in a seat on the back for an extra character/figure from a toy standpoint. This would've RULED to have as a toy when I was 6yrs old. I could see Man-At-Arms pulling the tarp off of this, and watching it smash the crap out of Spydor's legs in one swipe! lol

    I guess you could argue that He-Man is probably just as strong on his own, as Gygor is, but who cares, it's fun! lol Plus it cold be anyone inside of that thing, i.e. Man-At-Arms driving, and Ram-Man on the back or something. I mean He-Man has Battlecat so why not make this gorilla orange and green instead of yellow, and make it the official steed/transport of MAA? That'd be killer, and fit right in with MAA's persona, and character as an inventor/warrior.

    You see this Mattel?! That's how you capture the youth market again!

    OK hypothetical rant done.

    It would be interesting to see how people's entries would change now that MotUC has "turned" Gygor evil.

    DanielSchenstrom's lines are great. But as far as reimagining the character goes. Seraphyn/gbagok knocked this one out of the park! Awesome work. I think we have our winner.
