    Why So Little Love From 2002 Fans For Chief Carnivus?

    Why So Little Love From 2002 Fans For Chief Carnivus?

    It seems every time there are wish lists for 2002-related toys in the MOTUC line, it's always for Marzo, Keldor, and 2002 designs of previously released characters. What do you people have against cool looking cat-men?





    While I am definitely more of a vintage/Filmation fan, ever since the MYP episode that he premiered in first aired, I've wanted a toy made for him.

    Now that Marzo and Faceless One have been confirmed, he's my top want for the next 200X character! Always loved that guy!

    I like him. He's just not as high on my list as many other characters that originated from the 200X show.

    Same here. After Marzo, it is Evilseed and Carnivus for me.

    I'll be glad to get him.
    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

    this would inevitably lead to Four Horsemen Thundercats begging, pleading, and eventual lamentation...

    I have nothing against the character, and I hope he gets made. But admittedly I'm not a fan of humanoids with the heads and feet of animals and such. Like that 7th Kindgom line...Beautiful figures, but I don't like cat people, elephant people, etc.

    I hope you don't include Beast Man, Whiplash, Clawful, Buzz Off, or Mer-Man in that category.

    I don't, because they aren't the same thing. Not to me, anyway.

    Hey, I love the guy and want him very much!

    Why doesn't everyone love him? I don't know. In this world, some people hate chocolate, others hate pizza. Just no accounting for taste (or lack thereof, in some cases, ahem).

    He's just not that high a priority for me. I'd like to see Faceless One, Prahvus, Veena, Dactys, the Kulatak leader, Marlena, and Randor first.

    this is hilarious..... talk about double standards... the motu characters are part man, part animal. Exactly the same concept as Thundercats, TMNT, 7th Kingdom, Stan Winstom Realm of the Claw, etc. how is it any different?

    I guess it all depends on what you're used to I suppose. i just think it's funny to dislike one thing & like another when both are the same concept. it's like saying you hate chocolate, but love Snickers bars.

    anyway, hell yeah... bring on Chief Carnivous. We need some cat representation, other than Battle Cat & Panthor. i find it odd though that Carnivous & his people are intellegent talking cats while Cringer/Battlecat & Panthor are more like 'beasts'... apparently not all the cats on Eternia evolved.
    Lifelong fan of: MOTU, G.I.Joe, Transformers, most 'good' movies of any genre, Star Wars, oldies/classic rock & country music, WWE/WWF/WCW/NWA wrestling, old school circus sideshow performers & fictional movie 'creatures', my friends and family. oh, yes...and I love action figures!!!!!

    1. I don't like any of those things you mentioned
    2. They aren't 'part man, part animal', they are various species
    3. There's a big difference between a primate (beast man), an evolved lizard type (whiplash), and a cat guy. Something about cat guys I just don't like...sorry?

    I really don't want to argue about this , I gave my reasons for not having cat-people burning up my wishlist, let's leave it at that. lol.

    I don't understand the desire for this character. He never DID anything, never spoke much...what's the appeal?

    here's my breakdown of how badly i want particular figures:

    tier 1: fearless photog. so dumb. so awesome. i want him.

    tier 2: MYP-only characters. they never had figures, and they're so fresh in my mind that they just barely take precedence over unreleased MOTU/POP/NA characters.

    tier 3: unreleased MOTU/POP/NA characters. i'll admit i never kept up with POP or NA as a kid, but i want the unreleased stuff to see the light of day. i'm all up for expanding the mythos.

    tier 4: MOTU characters not updated in 200X. most of the guys we never saw were people i didn't have as a kid. and while a majority of them were clunkers in my opinion, there are a few that i do want to see.

    tier 5: everything else. the stuff we've seen done time and time again are the ones i'm not worried about. that's not to say i don't want to see these guys - that's where the majority of my favorites are - i'm just not as worried if we don't get them right now.

    You could say the same thing about Panthor but he's wanted so much, there are debates on how he should look.

    Hey, you could say the same for Scare Glow, probably even moreso. To me, the appeal is an interesting character design that would probably be transfered really well into action figure form by the 4H.
