    Thanks for championing this cause, Danielle! I hope your efforts bear fruit! I would LOVE a Karg figure to help further flesh out this amazing toyline... and, I don't mind WHICH "version" they'd ultimately go with if they could green-light it, because to my eye, the 4H always manage to capture elements of the essences of characters from multiple sources of inspiration... if they can do it, it will BE Karg! Here's to hoping!

    I'd be totally happy with that Karg design in classics - as long as we get him in some form!

    Although I get sarcasm is hard to indicate online, I was being sarcastic. I knew the kit was to make your own Karg figure. Which they have revealed today.

    I want Karg so bad. I bought Zombihamma's custom Karg head to make my own because I still don't think we'll ever get him. 2 weeks ago Karg was at the bottom of my list of figure wants but then after all these years I finally watched the MOTU movie and he rocketed right to the top.

    In my mind he's some wise old man who hangs around Snake Mountain and tries to give Skeletor advice (that Skeletor usually doesn't take).

    Just received the Castle of Power KARG head! Since I already have Hunter Knight's awesome movie Karg, I decided to put together a reasonable facimile of the He-Man Magazine version!



    I also picked up the Karak Nul Customs armor and cape kit, slapped together a Faceless One and Standor, painted FO's belly black which was easy, and threw on a Trap Jaw hook. I had to do some cutting on the back part of the armor and around the fur on the cape to get it to fit around the hair. Haven't decided if I should paint the fur collar white, since it came in black from Karak Nul. Kinda digging the black though, so I might leave it. Hmm.


    Kargamania!

    Nah, almost positive Hunter's head won't come off and I don't want to mess up the piece, esp. the hair, by trying. It'd be fun to see what it'd look like though.

    That Karg looks pretty damn good. Still no way an official one can be made though?

    Bill Stout, creature designer on the '87 MOTU movie, wanted residuals for every design of his Mattel turned into a figure. Hence only three movie characters/designs made it into the 1980s line. Stout is the only character creator in MOTU to have been given "royalties" for a character.

    Does that impact the character Karg himself though? What is the real truth about the motu magazine and can Mattel make him? Also when does the motu movie rights and trademark run out and how can an efx guy determine when a character can be made and the company owns the rights? The artist gives up his rights/creations when he agrees to work for a company. At least that's what Ive always read. Is that right? Id like to know.

    That all depends on the individual contract.

    Not necessarily. Every situation can be different regarding work-for-hire. Some contracts allow the creators to retain their rights to a property while licensed out to a company. Most likely though, as an artist, just as most other artists have in their contracts (even DC and Marvel now) allow for royalties to be paid toward creators, even if the original company still holds all rights to the character. Similar to how Jack Nicholson gets a nice paycheck everytime his likeness is used for Batman/Joker merchandise or when Burton's film gets a new DVD release, or how the songwriter of some one-hit wonder from the '80s still gets paid every time Sony licenses their song to a car commercial. Royalties don't imply ownership, per se, just that the company is obligated to compensate the creators/performers of something the company owns when they use it.

    Love the Castle of Power head and Karak Nul pieces, but I wouldn't mind and official too. Karg is excellent though. I always pictured his schtick to be some sort of Majestic KingScreen Shot 2015-04-17 at 6.15.57 PM.png sort of garb...

    Karg definitely needs to happen! Hopefully Mattel will find a way to release him in either movie or vintage magazine look. I'd like to see other movie characters made like Skeletor, his troops, He-man, Beastman and God Skeletor. One can hope...

    Mattel can release them as the UK Comic version with the option to change that figure into the 87 version. The alternative accessories for the 87 movie can be released at a later stage in a Weapons Pak.
