    That's not fair to Steve Urkel! As cheesy as that show is, I find myself unable to change the channel when it comes on Nick@Nite.

    I know. I was just being sarcastic. As much as a lot of MOTU fans say they hate Filmation's Prince Adam and Orko in general, I'm sure the 2-pack will sell out like crazy.

    I like him, but he was never my favorite character. He would seem more tolerable in small doses. I do have to say that the MOTUC figure we are getting is the best Orko figure I've seen to date and in scale too!

    Orko is not one of my favorite characters but I still do want him in my collection. But honestly, I am more excited for the bonus Prince Adam accessory that comes with Orko.

    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.

    I don't like him; I love 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

    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.
    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!!

    agreed! One of my favorite characters too!

    I've said it before and I'll say it again: Orko added a childlike theme to an often very serious situation; almost like a 'security blanket" if you will.

    In the most difficult and dangerous of situations, you felt an air of security seeming him there.

    And yes...the guy's powerful, and he's definitely come in handy.

    I like Orko, but I'm not crazy about him. I think he's best in small doses. My favorite Orko scenes are between him and MAA.

    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!!


    IMO
    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.

    Man lives in the sunlit world of what he believes to be reality.
    But...there is, unseen by most, an underworld, a place that is just as real,
    but not as brightly lit... a darkside.

    I have nothing against Orko, I just didn't want to buy him (Not even to get Prince Adam who I definitely want).
    I protect Simba, his family, and his pride.
