    How can you not like a former Man-At-Arms who wears an eye-patch, has white dreadlocks and still kicks butt?!

    I think I want a Dekker figure more than a Evilseed figure at the moment, but still Marzo, Faceless One, Marlena and Hawke are my most wanted from 200X.

    Dekker was mentioned in the MOTU movie script, so perhaps that's why they may be doing a figure of him.

    I should expect he'll be coming in 2020, when the MOTU movie is released.

    How have all these people read this script. Is it openly available online?

    As for the discussion at hand, I hope the make these characters from the 200x series:

    Royal Guard
    Dekker
    Count Marzo
    The Faceless One
    Carnivus

    ...there's probably more...

    No offense to anyone, but I'm not a big fan of Dekker. I just don't like the character design. He looks generic to me. There are at least 40 other characters that I can think of that I'd rather have in this line.

    Also Decker reminds me too much of Geldor

    Hmm..i might actually buy Dekker but i cant honestly disagree with others that think other characters might be more deserving.

    Dekker is awesome but...at whose expense should he put out? Horde Trooper? I think not. I want a Dekker but i want Clamp Champ, a Horde Trooper, A Royal Guard , etc. before him.

    I thought Dekker was pretty cool, even though he was only in one episode. For the sake of other characters, however, I wouldn't want him to take precedence.

    On another note, if they did make a figure, I bet his "real name" would be Dekker Dur.

    Dekker is OK, I don't think a monthly slot should go to him though. Maybe as a Man at arms variant offered as a second figure one month

    Didn't Ian Richter say that Clamp Champ was going to be introduced as a stand-in MAA whilst Duncan was a Snake Man in the proposed season 3?

    What do you all think?
    i always felt that if the 2002 series continued we would have seen dekker become clamp champ. it makes sense and gives clamp champ more character besides being JUST a royal body guard

    I don't see how that would be at all logical. Clamp Champ isn't missing an eye and is much younger than Dekker. Also, Clamp Champ isn't just a royal body guard, he is King Randor's personal body guard. It might not be the most exciting job, but it is one of the most important job's in the Royal Palace.

    Anyway, as far as a Dekker figure goes, I would like to see one eventually.
    However, there are many other 200X characters that I think should be made before him. Here are some of the figures I'd like to see made before Dekker:

    1. Queen Marlena
    2. Count Marzo
    3. Evilseed
    4. Lord Dactys
    5. Horde Wizard
    6. Calix
    7. The Faceless One
    8. Hawk
    9. Chief Carnivus
    10. Prahvus
    11. Ceratus
    12. Oracle
    13. Kronis

    I personally think any of these characters would be cooler than Dekker.

    When I read that Dean Stefan planned to establish Clamp Champ in Season 3, I immediately thought that he might've been Dekker's son or nephew.

    I'm not a huge fan of Dekker. I don't hate him by any means, but he is so low on the totem poll of characters...I'd want Vormus before him and why does Clamp Champ have to know or be related to Dekker? What are you trying to say all black people look alike

    I find this topic to be quite insulting.

    As soon as we see a character with black skin he's INSTANTLY linked to the other.

    Dekker is OLD. has WHITE hair. ONE eye!

    so the ppl that dont decide dekker and clamp champ are one and the same decide to make clamp champ his son soley on the basis that they both happen to be black.

    Why can't clamp champ be "JUST" a royal guard that's aspiring to be the next man at arms?

    Dekker.
    i am not saying he looks like clamp champ. i am saying they could have MADE him clamp champ. who knows what they would have done in the 2002 series?

    i can see them making him CC since he already has a back story and he could make a great personal guard

    Dion't you guys remember the show? EVERYBODY was related to the others somehow! Man-At-Arms is the adoptive father of Teela who is the daughter of the Sorceress and Fisto who is the brother of Man-At-Arms. And Keldor is the halfbrother of Randor who is the father of Adam whose mother Marlena is half part of the Gar which are the race of Keldor whose father is Captain Miro. With that in mind, it's no wonder that fans assume a family connection between Dekker and Clamp Champ! If the show would've run long enough, we probably would've found out that Dekker was Duncan's godfather, Zodac was Dekker's great-grandfather, Randor was Duncan's cousin and Tri-Klops the brother of the Sorceress!

    Insulting?! Buhuuu.... Maybe people link these two since every character in MYP show seemed to be linked to each other in many ways.

    And there is also other reasons to think they could be related. In show, there weren't really that much black people, not as villagers or as any other backround characters. And it's well known fact that when people get kids, they're children do get the same or mixed skin color from their parent's. And last but not least, it adds more possibilities for some great emitional scenes.

    I think getting insulted by these opinions and almost using "you must be racist cos you make assumptions on other than white skinned ppl" card is so ridiculous and lame.

    I never said anything about racism. you did. I'd say the same thing if clamp champ and dekker were both GREEN.


    I find it incredibly stupid that every character of the same skin is linked.

    Maybe we'll find out that orko is skeletor's son next???


    Also, keldor and randor were half brothers. Keldor is blue unless MOTUC changes that. I would say that skin is even an issue in MOTU if a blue skinned man can be related to a caucasian man.
    There's nothing to say that Clamp Champ couldn't be Man At Arm's brother. It's entirely possible in the real world for mixed race parents to have a child that looks one race over the other. MOTU is a fantasy genre, and there's no reason to say that if teela and he-man had a baby, it wouldn't be green skinned

    The only thing I find insulting about this thread is that people are so reluctant to accept characters that weren't released in the 80's. As many said before, this is a new line so Dekker deserves a figure as much as anyone. Mattel can even leave characters out for this is a new line with its own cannon. And in this cannon Dekker obviously has a part.

    Over the past years Eternia and the MotU property has grown beyond the childish Filmation fights and the Skeletor vs He-man minicomics. And new characters expand this growth even more.

    Well where's the problem here then, first you talk about insulting and then about black characters, heck, most of white skinned characters are linked to each other, why that ain't problem. It's great if you weren't even thinking about racism, I just got that expression when you used word insulting.

    Yes, of course it's fantasy genre, Adam and his family could be actually non-humans, roboto might be actually Zodacs father and Snout-spout is son of adam and clawful. But then again, base of fantasy is our world and our natural laws and only has some added stuff to make it fantasy. And your example about Keldor and Randor is useless, halfbrothers(or sisters) don't always have same skincolor, isn't that amazing...

    It's entirely possible in the real world for mixed race parents to have a child that looks one race over the other
    thanks
