    Evil Robot in MOTUC?

    Since Mattel are exploring the murky area of prototypes and unproduced figures of Gy-Gor, what do people think of more "never before seen" or "lost" figures? This guy would be a good example, since he seems to have been quite far in production.

    Funny, I posted the same inquiry just a few short months ago, and it got slammed left and right.

    Me....I'll buy anything with the Horde logo on it; they could market it as a rock, and I'll buy it( don't get any ideas, 4H ;D)

    Generally speaking, that is my favorite thing about this line. However, in the specific case of Evil Robot, I can't say that I'm eager to see him released. I would probably still buy him, but he's not high on my wish list.

    I find it interesting that Evil Robot is touted as part of Skeletor's crew in the copy, but the figure appears to wear the Horde symbol on it's chest and knees.

    I'll only get him if his bio says he's a hero.

    I'd take one gladly! I think he works best as a Hordesman, too, despite the copy depicting him with Skeletor's henchman.

    I'm certain the 4HM could make this guy really quite awesome!
    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 want this proto as a figure renamed as "Horde Robot". Maybe as a large scale beast could be a cool adition.

    I want an Evil Robot in MOTUC, but where does the idea for the giant size come from? I thought the prototype was actually smaller then a vintage figure. A MOTUC version the same height as a vintage figure would make me happy.

    Where are those pictures from? I would like this guy but he needs a MAJOR update. I would definitely buy one based on SCB's artwork!

    As with most of the late additions, Evil Robot doesn't look like an MOTU figure at all. Kinda like how by 1994 GI Joe vehicles looked like cheap neon bargain-bin versions of real Joe toys. This guy looks like a Go-bot.

    But his name's fantastic. How could you ever get less creative than Extendar? Evil Robot.

    Really?

    Evil Robot?!

    What was the next one gonna be: Heroic Action Toy?

    I'm going to call this one and say we get him next year as one of the "Beasts."

    I just have a feeling we will, and after overhearing something at Toy Fair NY about a large robot being included in the beasts next year, I'm going with this weirdo. LOL

    Those pics make him look awesome. I wonder how he will be integrated. Of course, he could have been made one of the Monstroids, but Filmation... yadda yadda

    Oh man I LOVE it. Not only is it automatically awesome for being a robot, but it's just called "Evil Robot." If they bring this to the line, I can only hope they still call it Evil Robot; that's hilarious!! I so want to own an Evil Robot. This is officially my favorite concept never-made-it-to-market toy in the MotU vintage line, and he's at the top of my list to be made for never before made figures. There is no way in which this toy is not awesome.

    "Evil Robot" as a name would be hilarious

    If they decide to use that as the Tag Line, what could his main name be??

    Croc-O-Tronic?

    No, that's too much like Weaponstronic (Artilla)

    Ugh. That piece of plastic dog poop would need some serious retooling before I stop vomiting, let alone think about buying one. I love that design in the artwork, though. That would work.

    Wow! Those artworks certainly make Evil Robot look cool. I hope the 4H take more attention of the artwork than the prototype! That proto reminds me of the ghastly monstroids.
