    Vintage Prototypes Transformed into MOTUC Figures

    I just wanted to run down how many actually prototypes were made into action figures, and wanted others opinions and wheather you think that the one that havent got one yet deserve it. If I am missing one let me know

    Preternia
    He-ro- yes
    Eldor-yes
    Gigantasuar-nope
    Vykron-yes
    Megaton (or Guerreo)- nope

    Masters
    Gyrattacker-nope

    Evil warriors
    Gygor-yes

    Evil Horde
    Evil Robot-nope

    POP
    Star Sisters w/Glorybird-yes

    GG
    Mara-yes
    Darius-nope
    Gleanons-nope
    Galcimytes- nope

    200x
    Choolaboh, the Kulatuk Elder ( not actually prototype, but was slotted for next set of figures in design drawings)

    Did i miss anything? Do the ones that didnt get figures yet deserve to have figures before other due to the fact that they made it further along in the design process then others?

    He actually was fully sculpted for inclusion in the 200X line, though I don't think there are pics of the Kulatak sculpt online.

    To me if a figure makes it to being an existing protype that's helps rank it pretty high in my mind for deserving to get made for Classics. I'd take them all, especially Darius. It's a shame Classics will end (or become something else without us getting him.

    I think the prototype based figures have been some of the best figures in MOTUC. Keep sprinkling them in!

    The prototype figures have been my favorite in the line. Would love the Horde Mummy, Horde Robot, and Steel Kill.

    Mattel has stated before they don't have access to the stuff from Tom Arts like the Horde Mummy right?

    Megaton was, I think, an electricity controlling NA Concept yes?

    I love the prototype figures, something about them almost making it makes their final release seem that much more important to me and I'm fascinated by what could have been and what was but has been forgotten - like derelict buildings and such - so they appeal to that too it helps that most of them have been pretty good too - Vikor and Gygor are excellent. I'd've liked most of 'em but especially Darius, Evil Robot, Detector, Red Beast and Steel Kill.

    Anyway you forgot the Bubble Carriage Maiden - who I think we're calling Bubblerina now - from Princess of Power, no figure of her for Classics but i'd buy one, she's adorable.

    Prototypes, and concept art to figure characters, are the number 1 reason I started collecting this line. It was simply fascinating to me that Vikor was an early concept sketch for He-Man, and it was very exciting to see He-Ro finally get a figure.

    I know I'm conflating the two, so I'll try to stick to the OP's topic (just prototypes).

    Darius is my top want where prototypes are concerned. I'll be getting Mara in my sub *excitement* and I currently have every other prototype to figure in MoTUC that facet has listed . . . and they are easily some of my favourite figures. I just got the Star Sisters a few days ago, so they are currently fascinating me.

    I definitely love the concept/prototype figures. I love old vintage becoming new neverbefore seen figures.

    I am totally getting that Guerrero head from whosits to make my own, assuming they do not do an official, which they probably wont but I would hate to have a custom when I could get an official.

    Evil Robot would be great. Darius seems must have in the NA camp and I've warmed to him nicely. When I found out about Gygor I immediately wanted one, especially because of his connection to BIg Jim

    I think the proto figs are some of my very favourite. Vykron & Vykor are awesome and I really want Guerrero guy next to them. The star sisters quickly became a beautiful part of my POP Display and I still think they are so cool as a set.

    I'd definitely prefer prototype figures of new characters over any more variants (filmation, 200x, or even vintage figure variants)

    Vintage Prototypes Transformed into MOTUC Figures

    I think Darius is the only remaining prototype I personally want.

    The evil robot is the most laughable thing to me. Tastes are tastes and everything, but I just can't get beyond how goofy that thing is. It's a brick with brick arms and a brick head and a goofy watergun.

    Really this is the first time i have ever heard that. Is there someone to contact to verify this?

    Totally agree with you Zartan, it bumps them up higher in my books and makes them the most deserving of figures since they were just missed their opportunity back in the day , and this is a perfect way of rectifying it.

    Gleanons and galacimytes yes, forgot those as well as Gygor, Crystoll was not a prototype though, he was the concept drawing for Karatti, and even used as Karatti in european comics, but he never made it to prototype stage

    Unfortunately these guys only made it to the concept drawing phase, never to the prototype phase.

    Megaton is the name given the Tony Gureero Heman with the helmet. If you have the power and honor book, its on page 11 on the title card describing the figure and the type of world he lived in.

    No, it's an EVIL brick with EVIL brick arms and an EVIL brick head. The goofy watergun is just a goofy watergun.

    The goofiness makes it awesome, but I can clearly understand people not being interested in it.

    Of course the vintage toy is goofy, but this is Classics we're talking about here, the Four Horsemen aren't just going to poop out a carbon copy of the vintage prototype. I like the color scheme and general look to it. Don't you think that that the Four Horsemen will make it look better than a "goofy brick"? This is totally in their wheel house - a detail, fully tooled robot would look awesome. They'd have a lot of room to go wild.
