Love to see him made in MOTUC
Dont really care for the guys
Horde in my book.
Originally a horde member, but now a loner stranded on Eternia.
A Horde member that was kicked out for being tooooooooooo evil.
To me he was a Horde Member that broke off from them, and either went home, or just wanted his own following. And since he was on MOTU and not POP, I like him even more, and is one of those rare times I actually like a one off character....as Dekker is both a one off character, and from a MOTU canon I don't like.
A couple ones off I would like to see are Icer & Batros.
Recent.... HATMOTU Skeletor
Wanted.... Filmation Mer-Man, Teela & Sorceress
Needed.... MOTUC Lord Masque
Oh man, did I forget to use these [sarcasm][/sarcasm] again? Sorry....
I like him best as a lone villain, as I generally like the idea of having more independent baddies. Also, as close to Filmation as possible.
He was with the Horde in it's initial invasion of Eternia. Being the renowned intelligence officer and brilliant tactician he is, he knew the brash and overconfident Hordak would endure a stunning upset by Grayskull. So Batros stayed far away from the battle, and avoided the banishment to Despondos. He is now stranded on Eternia, and constantly plotting ways to free and take control of Hordak's army. The Vambat must keep a constant hibernation cycle to have sustained for these thousands of years.
100% Filmation design in MOTUC, please. A stack of books plus 2 loose books would be great accessories.
He definitely is a cool looking character, but at this point in the line unless something radically changes (Filmation only sub, stellar 2014 sub sell in) I just can't see him as a must have character. If he showed up, I'd gladly take him, but I'm not going to put him on any lists.
I serve up lots of hot, fresh action figure reviews on Action Figure Barbecue!
"We have a Ram-Man"
Sure, but make him in a two-pack with his pickpocket partner, Robbos! Maybe release a Batrosmobile?
Also, their arch foe Jokos the Deadly Jester could be two-packed with his sassy girlfriend Holla Queen!
(This would all go great as companion pieces to He-Ro - admit it, you'd buy 'em...)
