    Clamp-Champ and Strong-or I'd keep Gygor only cause it's nice to have height variety.

    Clamp Champ came after my time as a kid. As an adult, he just seems like an alternate version of Fisto, to me. I don't need him. Gygor is cool, so I'd keep him based on that. Sy-Klone was always one of my childhood Masters, so he'd stay.

    For me, StongArm and Fang Man are one-off characters that I never cared about and the figures look WAY cartoony, compared to the other figures. I have no plans on ever buying either of those. So, from your list, I guess I'd only keep Gygor and Sy-Klone.

    I skipped Gygor myself due to the different size and storage concerns. I love Fangman so wouldn't dream of getting rid of him.

    Although I love all of these figures, none of them are essential in the theme with which you are working.

    For He-Man and Skeletor, these characters are more like "extended family"......

    because of that and lack of space and will most likely stick with NA figures only in the future.

    Not saying i'll sell the rest, but will probably store them away

    Clamp-champ
    Gygor
    Sy-Klone

    Gygor looks horrible to me, and doesn't exist in my stories, neither does Clamp (although I do like his MOTUC figure), I never had his vintage toy. Sy-Klone....I don't recall him being on the Filmation cartoon....I had the toy, but was never attached to him very much.

    But Strong Arm and Fang Man are Filmation characters, and ones even though used once or so, are part of Skeletor's minions.
    Recent....Unnamed One & Hydron
    Coming....
    Wanted....Entrapa, Double Trouble, Light Hope, Filmation Hordak & Clawful
    Considering....
    Needed....Dragstor

    Oh man, did I forget to use these [sarcasm][/sarcasm] again? Sorry....

    Check here for my My collection page, MOTU and more!

    Sy-Klone was on at least two Filmation episodes. I can't remember which ones they were off the top of my head, but they were all in the last batch of 32 episodes that were released on DVD a few years back.

    I would keep Clamp Champ. Ditch his clamp if you think it looks silly and give him some different weapons. I gave mine the grey WP Triklops sword.

    Sy-Clone is technically a heroic Warrior, and fits into the theme. Or visually is he too bright?

    Fang Man and Strong Arm are open to interpretation. if you don't care for how they look and they don't fit I say ditch them.

    I don't even own Gygor.
    It is spelled "Crita", not "Critta". Misspell her name and Crita will knock the "T" out of you!

    Also...get her into the line!

    Don't understand why you'd dump Sy-Clone and Clampster if you want He-Man and the Masters. They're Masters!

    Dump Strong-Or.
    He looks to simplistic and cartoony to fit in IMO
    Awesome sticker included!

    I can't imagine getting rid of any of my figures, but understand if you don't have the room, $$$, or desire to keep them all. With that said, I wouldn't ever get rid of Sy-Klone or Clamp Champ.

    If you look at it this way removing Gygor would free you up quite a bit of room. He takes up about two standard sized figures. I giant ape does not seem that fitting. The big giant ape seems rather common in a lot of media. The character is not all that essential to have among the character variety in motuc. He would not really be missed all that much.
    Fang Man is another that can be taken out. He has a lot of goofiness to him & is not all that vital as a character. Defiantly not the most appealing or a character that would be missed all that much either. He was a character that never got more than one episode or much of a chance to really be included in any more story. Unless you are someone that really uses your endless imagination like I had in motu story.
    The others really have a much stronger place among the collection.

    Personally if it where me I would not forfit a single one.
    Wish List: Eldor, Skeleton Warriors, King Argho, Horde Wraiths, Kobolds, Prahvus, Lord Masque, Rock Monster, Gen. Tartaran, Evil Seed, Carnivorous Plant, Lizard-Man, Hawke, Crimson Fury, Melaktha, Spinwit, Ra-Jarr, Kelclar, King Miro, Dare, Missile-Toe, Sh'gora, Vizar, Harpy, ABC Giants, Lodar, Dragoon, Darius, Negator, Masks of Power Demons, Slob-Boar, Bubblor, Three-Beast, Nocturna

    Clamp-champ
    Psy-klone
    Gygor
    Fang man
    Strong-or
    Gygor is one cool over-sized figure. He's not exactly an essential entry in the He-Man / Skeletor crew, but if you already have him then it would be madness to sell him! I did this the first time around and regretted it so much that I bought him back for double the price. He poses so well and looks so intimidating alongside Skeletor's evil minions.

    Psy-Klone is hugely nostalgic for me and was part of the original toyline (as with Clamp-Champ), although does he mean something to YOU?

    I always liked Clamp-champ as a figure, but I never personally owned the original. I'd say that he's definitely a good candidate for ditching. But depends if you are wanting only classic line characters, or if your collection is ongoing and misc?

    Strong-or is cartoony yes, but also very cool, but again do YOU care about or want to collect the filmation characters. For me, it's a must and perhaps more important than any other sub-line in the range. But with that said Fang man would be my own second figure I would nominate for ditching.

    However, it's really up to YOU, we can only give our opinions and advise.

    And...as you can clearly read we all have diversely different views on this lol

    Gygor is gone. I seriously did not have room for him on the coffee table that I have set the castle and all the figures.He was always sitting on the bottom tray any way.The others I can at least fit them in or around the castle. I hate clamp champ and strong-or keep toppling over because of their heavy weapons, so they might be next in line.
