    So if we could do Filmation, which characters would you want as toys?

    In no way should this thread be viewed as an indication that Mattel will be making Filmation characters. But we are curious, beyond the obvious Shadow Weaver, Lizard Man and other popular ones, which characters in all honestly would fans want to see as toys? I don't think we'd get to the Widgets, but if the stars could aline, what characters would fans be interested in actually getting figures of?

    Images and key episodes with any character suggestions would be great to see!

    Again, for the record, we currently to not have access to the Filmation created characters. This is just a conversation starter, not an announcement of any of these figures.

    Wow! What a cool thread! I would absolutely love to get some of these great Filmation characters!!! Mattel HAS to recognize that purchasing the rights to these characters would be a WISE investment!!!

    Here is my top 12: (excluding the obvious Lizard Man and Shadow Weaver)
    1-Batros
    2-Icer
    3-Fang Man
    4-Vultak
    5-Dragoon
    6-Kittrina
    7-Shokoti
    8-Sea Hawk
    9-Huntara
    10-Lord Masque
    11-Strongarm
    12-Garth

    That is a solid years worth of what would be AMAZING MOTUC's figures. Mattel: Please step up to the plate and make these Filmation figures happen!! You would make MOTU fans around the world eternally grateful!!!

    Just the idea of Filmation based characters makes me smile (and sometimes clap and jump of joy, but I won't say that... I dont want to make a ridicule of myself!)

    Scorpia (my favourite POP villain)


    Huntara


    Madame Razz & Broom


    Octavia


    Shokoti


    Adora!!
    Sea Hawk
    Imp
    Granita
    Melog
    Mortella
    Mask

    Filmation versions of:
    She-Ra
    Catra
    Entrapta
    Castaspella
    Glimmer
    Queen Angella
    Evil Lyn
    Modulok

    FILMATION TEELA PLEASE.

    Everyone remember, it's not just Filmation-only characters that we could have, if they had the rights. They could also give us Filmation versions of characters that they can already do based on other media.

    Filmation Teela is similar, yet still very different to the classic toy. She's absolutely gorgeous and I think would be very welcome to the line.







    (Oh, and make sure they get the butt right).

    As family oriented as Filmation's Masters Of the Universe was(as well as all Filmation TV shows & movies), taken out of context, some of the screen grabs look like they were taken out of that Heavy Metal animated movie from the early 80's.

    Honestly, I would buy any and all Filmation characters, guaranteed. But if you want a couple specific ones outside of my most desired (OCTAVIA, SCORPIA AND SHADOW WEAVER...hehe), here's some suggestions.


    - Sea Hawk


    - Dylamug (I think Mattel may own the rights to this one as there was a piece of concept art that was reminiscent of him)



    - Vultak


    - Granita


    - Admiral Scurvy w/cat



    Will post more later, cause there's a limit on the images. :P

    After reading Toyguru’s comments in the Matty News thread about all the bios and figure release order being planned from Day 1 through to 2016, I thought I’d resurrect this thread.

    It’s cool we have a consistent storyline created trying to incorporate all the MOTU history – and I’m eagerly awaiting the story to be rolled out. But have Mattel left room in the line to obtain and integrate some of the library of FILMation characters into MOTUC?

    I sincerely hope the latest revelation doesn’t mean ‘never ever’ for the FILMation characters.

    This thread (started by Toyguru himself) shows how strongly the fans want a large number of FILMation characters. I went through and re-tallied the requests. Interestingly, almost 1 in 3 respondents requested Shadow Weaver*, Scorpia and Shokoti. Almost 1 in 4 respondents requested Lord Masque, Sea Hawk, Strong Arm, Batros and Octavia.

    I hope Toyguru sees this and can convince Mattel to eventually obtain and incorporate these characters into MOTUC.

    70 – Shadow Weaver*; Shokoti; Scorpia
    58 – Masque
    54 – Sea Hawk; Strong Arm
    49 – Batros; Octavia

    43 – Icer
    42 – Fang Man
    38 – Granamyr
    34 – Dree Elle
    33 – Lizard Man*; Madame Razz (plus Broome received 28 votes in his name)
    30 – Huntara
    29 – Granita
    26 – Vultak
    25 – Kittrina
    23 – Imp; Evil Seed
    22 – Queen Marlena
    21 – Dylamug
    20 – Plundor
    17 – Skeletor’s Robot Knights; Dragoon
    16 – Hunga the Harpy
    15 – Garth
    14 – Horde Prime; Uncle Montork
    12 – Delora (Hawke received 11 requests)
    11 – Enchantress; Game Master; General Sunder; Mallek; Melaktha
    10 – Royal Guards; General Tataran
    8 – Celice; Dark Dream; Garn; Molkrom; the Twiggetts
    7 – King Miro
    6 – False Face; the statue Colossor
    5 – Cringer; Shadow Beasts; Kol Darr; King Tamusk; King Ahgo; Light Hope, Lady Valtira; Yuckers

    4 – Kodac Ungol; Lord Tyrin; Nepthu; Queen Elmora; Vokan (Vulcan); Sh’Gora; Melog

    3 – Kothos; Red Knight; Colonel Blast; Admiral Scurvy; Daimar the Demon; Mortella; Royal Chef Alan; Widgets; Manchines.

    2 – Aramesh; Chimera; Starchild; Sibyline; Sticky Fingers; Negator; Toymaker; King Helios & the fire people; Swen; Inspector Darkney; Zagraz the Comet Keeper; Zanthor the Cosmic Enforcer; the monster Yog; Rabar the stone creature; Lohni; Kowla; and the Christmas Special kids

    Some 65 additional characters from the FILMation toons were listed once!

    Apologies for the lengthy post.

    * Given Toyguru specifically mentioned Shadow Weaver and Lizard Man at the start of this thread, it is likely many respondents purposely did not mention these characters. It is possible non-filmation characters such as Granamyr, Queen Marlena and Garn are also under reported.

    ** For the purpose of this count I did not include requests for ‘Filmation-versions’ of vintage MOTU/POP characters.

    Yeah, I know I'm late to this thread. Don't know how I missed it.

    There are a lot of awesome characters from Filmation that would make great MOTUC figures. I would be thrilled for (and buy) any of them. Ones that immediately come to mind have already been said but whatever. These are the ones I'd want the most: Count Marzo (classic style w/black flower, ring of remembrance, and his weird memory erasing gun), Shokoti, Dylamug, Octavia, Sea Hawk, Skeletor's Robots, Garth, Kol Darr, Monteeg, Plundarr (so ridiculous I'd have to get it), and definitely the obvious ones...Shadow Weaver, Scorpia, and so on.

    However, one thing I really like about Filmation is all the various beasts He-Man has to deal with. Those would make EXCELLENT additions for larger characters and beasts in MOTUC. You know the $30-$60 things. I'd love any random beast from the Filmation cartoon. Just to name a few examples off the top of my head since I recently started rewatching all the dvd sets: Granamyr (obviously), Gryphon, Grimalkin, Sh-Gora, Colossor, Dragoon/The Dark One, King Ahgo/Trolls, etc...

    Another thing it had were great stories, legends, artifacts, weapons, and stuff like that so if Mattel had the rights to Filmation things, they could do an AMAZING weapons/accessories pack. Just watch your dvd sets and imagine the possibilities.

    The Filmation cartoons are my favorite piece of television ever so I would probably die happy seeing ANYTHING come from Filmation. That includes Filmation characters as MOTUC figures, Filmation stories or references used in the bios, or any random MOTU merchandise with Filmation designs on it. <3 Filmation.

    It seems like alot of work! Thank you. I think just the fact that Toyguru even asked the question means that Mattel must have some interest in the Filmation rights..

    Thanks for tallying up, for easy reference in case they do make a decision to get the rights. Let's hope they see this..

    I'm not sure how much it was cost Mattel for the ER rights, but I would thing it would be a good investment for them at this point.

    HE-MAN.

    That version always has been and always will be my definitive version of The Most Powerful Man In The Universe, and I want him more than any other toy, figure, or statue, and I'd give up almost any toy from any toy line that's currently in my collection for one.

    Adora Definitely in the Filmation style. I would buy no other!
    Horde Prime!
    Madam Razz & Broom
    Queen Marlene
    Scorpia
    Dree Elle
    Vultak
    Granita
    Dylamug

    There are actually quite a lot of them I want to see outside of Shadow Weaver etc.

    Definately Scorpia and Imp. And Adora and Catra based on their Filmation designs/outfits.
