    army builders-which skeletor's troops you choose?

    I think that mattel should to make an army Builders of skeletor's troops, I do not know if Mattel owns the rights to these characters but these are the options: hover robots (Filmation) Centurions (motu movie '87) bone warriors (200x comics) and I do not know if any other troops.

    hover robots


    centurions


    bone warriors (I could not find a good picture, if someone has a good image of bone warriors, put it here if you can).

    I admit that I like the 3 options but definitely I choose the bone warriors.

    I think the Centurions are pretty cool!! They could even come with those hover-sled thingys!! IMO, they would look pretty cool going into MOTUC battle against the upcoming Palace Guards 2 pack!
    Mattel... Please bring back 200x styled stactions!!

    In the MVC Comic, Icons of Evil: Trap Jaw, Skeletor has some pretty cool undead warriors. I could see adding them to the mix.

    I'd like to see the hover robots as the army pack and the centurion as a bonus figure.

    Movie concept art for the Skeletor's Troopers was interesting, unlike the black Stormtroopers they ended up being. Of course currently only option available is the MYP one or something entirely original (which might not be a bad idea).

    Not too interested in the movie centurians.

    The army builders I desperately want are the hovering Robot Knights from the FILMation cartoon. I love these guys so much I designed a custom one based off a vintage Horde Trooper some years ago.

    Centurions are better as a army figure pack, but I also like the robots.

    I'd love to get the movie troops and hover robots, but I doubt Mattel has the rights to either.

    I think the Shadowbeast is meant to be Skeletor's army builder.

    There are also Skelecons. http://www.he-man.org/forums/boards/...d.php?t=181728



    Bone Warriors would be my first choice, followed by the Skeleton Warriors, followed by movie Centurians, followed by Skelecons, followed by pretty much anything else, followed by the hover robots.

    I really dislike those hover robots.

    Bone and Skeletal Warriors have the same problem in that they'd require almost 100% new tooling. While I'm not a big fan of the Skelecons, they do have the plus that they'd be very easy to make and have minimal tooling costs.

    But since we only get an Army builder set once a year, and the line has what a good 4 years left before they run out of characters. Toy Guru said they had plans for 2016 or something insane I think, I could just be thinking wishfully.

    But if 4 years were left, there are not that many choices for armies.
    Horde Troops, Snake-men, what else? I would not mind seeing the Hover bots, Centurions and the skeleton warriors in time. It's not like Skeletor to limit himself to just one anyway

    Would love the Filmation hover robots but we know their not game. Don't think we can have the movie Shock Troopers either. I love the Skelecons from the UK Ladybird books, not sure if we can have these or not, they did use some art form one of these books for the Beast Man bio pic.
    But before all of these I would want Horde Troops and Snake-men.

    Hover Robots/Robot Knights for me - they're the most iconic and I hope one day Mattel will be able to create them.

    I'd go for the bone warriors, very Skeletorish (is that a word?).
    I'd also buy the hoover robots, for nostalgia value and because they look 10k times better than the horde morons. However, i think Mattel made it pretty clear they dont (yet) own filmation rights, and i am afraid those sexy cans never featured in the minicomics, and never became actual toys (a shame really).

    Yes , those please.

    Centurions, meh. Too mush Star Wars Stormtrooper like. I don't like 'em at all.
    They don't fit in Motu(c) at all

    The Skelcons could be potential recipients of Disguise Preternia He-Man's vest and skirt. Just need a new belt!

    TG said they can't do characters from the 87 movie that don't already have toys, so both the movie troopers and the Filmation robots are sadly off-limits for MOTUC.

    If it's ever a possibility, I'd like the Filmation Hover-bots. All the others are okay, but I don't think I'd feel the need to buy them.
