    Platino and Fuerza-T

    I hope a thread has not already been established about this, but I could not find one via He-Man.org's search engine.

    Platino and Fuerza-T, especially Platino, needs some link to the MOTUC universe. It would nice to see a Platino similar to the art on this carded figure as a MOTUC figure. That longish, greenish hair and goatee would be nice to see.

    Clarification: This is not a repaint of the of MOTUC figures as with the MOTU figures. This is the creation of new characters as in the bios in the first weblink, for such a new character like Platino — not just simply a repaint of an MOTUC He-Man.

    I'd love to see these become part of Classics!
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    I hope we will NEVER see those figures.
    If someone want one of those, customize your personal favorites.

    Platino could be a new character, not a variant. After all, we have other, less interesting variants . . .

    Not for me, they are not part of MOTU, just someones' fan creation right? I say good for the creator's imagination but not for MOTUC toys.

    no.

    I would have rather have.

    1) Established characters

    2) Thundercats (not an option anymore sadly )

    3) Blackstar (Blackstar, overlord, and dragon only)

    4) Bravestar (Bravestar, Tex hex, and horse only)

    5) maybe the random wacky custom - knockoffs. Fuerza-t etc.


    For the most part, I'd agree with merman79... get a Fisto, Randor and king grayskull and you have Platino.

    Fan Creation? They were produced by Top Toys using original vintage MOTU molds.
    I personally would love a MOTUC Platino.

    Agreed, established characters should be first. However, when this question was posed, it was for MOTU related characters, not Blackstar, Thundercats, et cetera, who are outside the MOTU universe . . .

    Agreed. Even if we only get Platino, cool cool beans and groovy gravy!

    My thoughts exactly.
    Maybe Marzo as an archenemy was the biggest thing to happen to Mekaneck, but as far as Marzo was concerned...it was Tuesday.

    Would Matty have the rights or does Top Toys have them?

    They'd make good cheap Mutants and Guardians from the NA period but given how tight the line is, I doubt we'd ever see them.
    Matty, Great Black Wizard figure please!

    Only if they get new heads. I don't want them to share the same faces as another. Platino and He-Man are two different people and should have different heads.

    I'd love to see some Fuerza-T action in MotUC. I don't care how or if they work it into the MotUC universe, just make the toys, that's all I want.

    I'd rather not see them at all in MOTUC, since they are nothing more than mix-and-match knock-off versions of the vintage line.
    And imagine the effect their introduction would have on the amazing bios ToyGuru wrote ...

    Platino could simply be a past He-Man, after all, there's 5000 years of them to fill!

    I've just changed my profile picture because we got Geldor in MOTUC!

    True, but even if they use the same molds, Fuezra T IS a different line. It's not the same as PoP and NA... Though to be fair, some look cooler

    My opinion stands that if we were going to bring in OTHER toy lines (and Blackstar DID have a cameo in Filmation...) There are others I'd rather see first.

    If Ram-man got pushed out a year because they put Platino in earlier... I'd be ticked...

    If he was pushed out so they could insert Lion-o or Blackstar... Oh HECK yes!!! I'd be ALL for that!!! ^_^

    I don't usually like other universe cross-overs but these might fit well.

    I voted Other.

    I'm starting to like these weirdos more and more and am thinking of making my own customs in either vintage or possibly MOTUC. I really like Plantino (hate the name) and Tekno, but the others are growing on me. They remind me of some of my Homemade MOTU that I made when I was a kid.

    I like the idea of these as potential characters / figures but only after the main characters, like to keep the line going after 2017. I would also love to see fan and 4H original characters/figures included. If the Fuerza-T are included before the end of the planned line, maybe offer them as only bonus, non-sub figures.

    Just think if the factions in Fuerza-T were from the time of Vikor and the Fighting Foe Men... just maybe Fisto's silver fist and Jitsu's golden hand once belonged to Platino and Shiboshi and when they died the hands were lost, or stored in Castle Grayskull, or were kept as sacred relics by some long lost civilization....

    well, in my own canon platino and shidoshi were respectively combat masters for fisto and jitsu (and titano was the "man-at-arms" before dekker and duncan), then jitsu betrayed eternos' elite guards and followed keldor (and stole night stalker from royal stables).

    An interesting theory!

    I'm not a die hard Fuerza-T fan but I would like to at least see Platino and Felinor make an appearance in the MOTUC line.

    lol, the original toys were nothing more than mix-and-match, that's the brilliance of Fuerza-T. Also, the "amazing bios". You're joking right? Please tell me you're joking.

    I think Fuerza-T should just be from an alt. universe. One where copyright laws and trademarks are routinely flouted for the greater good.

    I know they were and that's also exactly what I meant by "they are nothing more than mix-and-match knock-off versions of the vintage line". I just fail to see why this makes them so brilliant

    Btw, by original toys you were referring to Fuerza-T, right? Because if you meant to say vintage MOTU was nothing more than mix-and-match, I would strongly disagree.

    I was not joking, I was being sarcastic. You can read my humble opinion about the bios in the following thread: http://www.he-man.org/forums/boards/...d.php?t=207212

    I wouldn't mind seeing some of the Fuerza-T villains show up in MotUC somehow (someday, maybe toward the end of the line when they start to run out of "classic" figures), but I couldn't care less about Platino or the other heroes.
