    Do You Like Orko???

    Since it seems that there are still so many MOTU fans who find the less Orko in their MOTU the better & others who outright despise him with every ounce of their being, I was curious as to how the ranks of He-Man.org feel about this divisive character(or at least "the ranks" who vote in this poll).

    Do You Like Orko???

    Personally, I not only LOVE the character, he's in my Top 5 MOTU Heroes.

    I have always hated him, I never watched Filmation and My Nana bought me Orko home from a visit to Sydney! I opened it, pulled the rip cord once, and threw him into a pile of spare toys, and played with the magic Trick!

    I loved what the 200x toy looked like, cos it looked like a mage. But As a character they kept him stupid! they could have made him wise and powerful -think Yoda in a dress- but they kept him silly!

    Its always bugged me that hes such a purely 'Filmation' style design and concept and yet we are stuck with him, and cant have Shadow weaver!!

    I've always liked the Filmation Orko and the Orko from the vintage mini-comics but I can't stand the orko from the myp cartoon.

    200X Orko was way more competent than Filmation Orko, especially if he could slow down great mages like Skeletor or King Hsss with basic spells. He even disguised Cringer as Panthor and would have reset the fallen Colossi around the palace if Man-At-Arms didn't mess him up.

    I think Orko works in small doses. I also think that MYP did right in portraying his power levels. Think Akiro from Conan the Destroyer. A mage who is stuck using low level spells, rather than a mage who can't control his magic.

    You are absolutley right, In MYP Orko had an 'outsiders' point of view, and definetly had the 'ooomph' to back it up! and they didnt over use him -unlike Filmation that had him in nearly every scene of the 10 or so eps Ive ever seen.

    My problem in MYP was the voice-again- they could have given him a less annoying voice, but they stuck with the Kiddy/joke voice.

    And as i said, the actual scuplt of the 200x figure is beautiful, I love the hands and the shape of the knee in the robe. But most of all I loved how they adapted the awful 'O' into a medallion. Definetly one of the most underrated of the 200X figs!

    Hated him as a kid, hate him as a grown-up - though he was better in 200x.

    The only Orko I'd accepted would be this version:

    That, to me, looks like Shadow Weaver after a sex change, not Orko. Although. considering the fact that I felt Orko sounded like a pre-op ****** in the MYP cartoon, maybe that would be fitting. I'm just happy to know that the MOTUC Orko is Orko without any "upgrades" or new designs.

    Agreed. Filmation Orko was the worst, in terms of look and character. Having him look like a floating shirt and hat, with a big "O" on it, looked sooo silly.

    I love the MYP look, where he had on a medallion of some sort.

    Also, in Filmation, I can't believe they allowed him to walk around with such a child like mindset, and unstable powers. It's just irresponsible on the part of the heroes.

    200X Orko all the way.
    200X Power Sword, 200X Toon, 200X Continuity.... Yeah, it's all about 200X!!

    I kind of feel the way you do. I liked the Filmation Orko, probably because I was a kid, and didn't find him too annoying. Looking back now, I can see that I was more forgiving.

    The 200X Orko was awesome design wise, but sadly suffered the same bungaling persona of his vintage couterpart. He did shine for a few moments, however he did need vast improvements. Oh well. I guess we'll just have to use our imaginations and see Orko for his true potential, and not the lame comic relief he has been previously written for.

    Yes, I like Orko.

    Originally voted no, but after watching a few dozen Filmation episodes, I'd change that to yes. He's a fun character.

    Love Orko. He's in my top 3 alongside He-Man and Skeletor. As a young kid I read the first mini comics first and thus, while excited to see a cartoon, at first wasn't sure what to make of this very different royal setting/Prince Adam story Filmation had created. But Orko drew me in and thus he was the one that really caused me to be won over by the Filmation universe and incorporate those elements into my play time and personal MOTU canon (although there are still elements I really enjoy from the original mini comics).

    Definitely not. He's one of the characters I wouldn't mind losing in the Great Purge of the Ultimate Battlegound Part Deux...

    I like the lil guy.
    I hope I can get the non-color change Orko & Adam off Matty after SDCC.

    He made me laugh a few times in the MYP 'toon too.
    I want my other half.

    Yeah, I like Orko.

    My girlfriend wouldn't like the negative talk against Orko. She loves him. I just gave her a couple of my Orko figures that are MOC. I gave her the Orko from the 200X line and the mini Orko from the 200X line. I also dug out the original Orko I played with as a kid and gave it to her to display. He even still has his hat and zip cord.
