    - Ram-Man!
    - Man-E-Faces!
    - Rio Blast
    - Snout Spout
    - Battle-Cat
    - Extendar
    - Rokkon

    - Multibot
    - Blast Attack
    - Two-Bad

    Show some love for the missing Heroes!
    Maybe Marzo as an archenemy was the biggest thing to happen to Mekaneck, but as far as Marzo was concerned...it was Tuesday.

    Excellent bios, fantastic research of interesting characters! I specially like the ones of unknown characters as She-Zar.

    Love, love, love the new volley of BIOS! They've all been great though. Mattel should seriously have hired you to help out with the Classics line.
    A fabulous new wardrobe was revealed to me the day I held aloft my sword and said...

    I love how ferros came out and can't wait to see the other horde invders. i liked your original version of them you did a while back but one critique i would give for rackney is that his face almost seemed too mechanical or robot like. not sure if thats the best way to describe but thats as close as i can get. it just didnt seem like his face was a creature the way the mustache was designed with the little markings and stuff. other than that i loved all three of them and cant wait to see the updated versions

    The more obscure the better! I'd really feel better seeing the MOTUC bios for some characters like Bow, who didn't have a lot of info about them to begin with. Otherwise I try to keep a mix of Filmation, super obscure, and toy characters.

    i love your art (but, hey, who doesn't?) and your storytelling too: i mean, it wasn't easy at all to give ferros a threatening appearance and an interesting background!!

    btw, i would have loved if motuc bios were like these: a brand new unitary look, a "blast from past" artwork, a good narration (respectful of previous sources)...and, above all, showing sharella as herself!!!
    Thank you! I think the official bios have so many legal considerations that it hampers them from giving us all the things we'd like such as the Filmation references and so forth. It's really a shame, Shezar would be outstanding in MOTUC. But I think they are referencing a lot of stuff we take for granted (I may be one of the only people who liked them using Jungulia).

    I have about half of those guys drawn already and will include them, but I'm curious to see what the Horsemen do with characters like the Rock People in MOTUC before I try to guess at their 200X appearances.

    Completely in agreement, Mattel should seriously have hired you to help out with the Classics line, and in a new movie, new comics, new animated series, and in all official MOTU history.

    Queen Zal looks great and I don't recall seeing her.

    Could you tell me where is she from again?

    Zal is in the MOTU comics from Brazil, same as Shezar.

    I'm so happy you finally did Ram-Man!

    Great pictures as always, Whiplash and Grizzlor are just mindblowing...
    Maybe Marzo as an archenemy was the biggest thing to happen to Mekaneck, but as far as Marzo was concerned...it was Tuesday.

    I knew you'd be happy to see him! He, like Tallstar, seemed to be taking just too darned long to get an official bio, so I decided to go ahead and post. Actually a lot of Ram-Man's bio comes from that single MVC issue of the 200X MOTU encyclopedia. It's a very small art card that you can barely read, but it was enough to fill half the space.

    I had the most fun with Zal though, she reminded me so much of Galoob's Golden Girl (wish Mattel would snatch up those rights and produce a parallel MOTUC-style line out of all those and Remco's Warlord toys). Darkspecter helped a whole lot with the information for her bio, as well as reference pictures. Thanks, Eric!

    ...that would be gorgeous!
    not to mention galaxy warriors (sungold), galaxy fighters (sewco) and defenders of the planets (sparkle toy inc.)...

    btw, great work, especially on queen zal (love obscure characters).

    just a little bit iffy 'bout ram-man's real name: to me, he always looked as
    reminescent of a roman centurion, so a "scandinavian" like name, sounds
    a little bit strange.

    I decided just to do a play on Ramathorr from 7th Kingdom. I have no idea what his real name should be, though I guessed it wouldn't be Ram-Man. I'll probably update when we get his official bio.

    Nice!

    I really like how you've taken the MYP style to the next level by adding the 200X design elements back in, that were watered down for the cartoon

    You're right. She does look very similar to Golden Girl:



    I wish Mattel could get the rights to that toy line as well. Awesome designs and storyline! It's like if King Randor and He-Man were Golden Girl and Skeletor was Dragon Queen and Skeletor killed King Miro to rule the kingdom. Glad you had fun with Zal! I love the obscure characters that have unique designs and stories!

    You're welcome, Eric!

    Great work as always. I look forward to your updates. I especially enjoy seeing some of the lesser-known characters from different MOTU media show up amidst the well-known characters! Very cool.

    Yeah, I know, but it's the art style rather than the lady's wardrobe. Honestly She-Ra looks like a Disnep *evil lightning strike* Princess now.
