If that were the case we wouldn't have gotten Darius or General Sunder in the Collector's Choice sub this year, as many characters finished higher than they did. We also never would have gotten a figure of Anti-Eternia He-Man. We may not see as many surprises as in the past, but like always, Mattel will mix it up a bit. There are still plenty of ways to get some of the more obscure characters in the MOTUC line. Evil Robot would make a great chase figure or out of sub item.

    I was SOOOooooo tickled at the thought of this guy, back when all we had to go on was his Mattel Catalog image (sans context). I envisioned him as a huge, lumbering behemoth, hopefully in the scale of Gygor and The Shadow Beast. But knowing about Evil Robot what I know NOW (he's actually SMALLER than Your standard MoTU??!), I'm afraid the Thrill is Gone for me. :^(

    Even if it was not alot of new parts with the catalog of robot parts (between Multibot and the Horde Troopers, ect) I think they could swing it. Heck, Mosquitor's horrid boot things look like the kinda thing this guy is made of.

    Make it at least standard figure size and we are a go. I also pictured it larger but going back to look it is pretty small compared to the hand. I know they'd make it at least standard figure size.

    Will they do this? Seems less than likely anymore. I love my prototype figures though. I'd still get one. I still think about it sometime.

    It would be good if he could possibly share parts with Artilla, as they're both fairly niche characters who would require almost all new tooling, so that would be a good way to get a second use out of the parts.

    I'd also like to put my hand in the air and even wave it around a bit as someone who'd like one of these.

    Darius & General sunder were highly wanted. don't just go by the org polls, Mattel stated they looked at lots of forums to see what fans really wanted. As for ant-He-man He's not part of any sub so he doesn't count for Collectors Choice. If they Make Evil robot an out of sub item that no one is forced to buy then I don't care, I just don't want to be forced to buy that crappy looking thing.
    Collectors Choice most Wanted Characacters:

    Hunga The Harpy, Sagitar, General Tateran, Kothos, 200x Sorceress, Crimson Countess, Inspector Darkney.


    Club Grayskull Filmation most Wanted Characacters:

    Kittrina, Melaktha, Leech, Filmation Horde Trooper, Prince Adam, Stratos, Modulok, Yukkers, Multibot, Ram-Man, Whiplash, Webstor.

    I don't just go by the org polls, I just used them as an example. Darius and General Sunder were wanted, but many, many characters were much more demanded. Mattel is never going to give us the top requested figures in order, they will always mix it up a bit.

    Nobody has specifically asked for Evil Robot to be included in the Collector's Choice sub. People are simply posting their support to see him made in the MOTUC line. If you don't want him, that's fine, but it's no reason he shouldn't or couldn't be included in MOTUC.

I think he is a huge candidate for an exclusive, either Chase, SDCC or traveling. This is the kind of figure that isn't must have by everyone, but would make a welcome addition for a lot of us. And as usual, the 4H would knock this guy out!! Bring him on!!!
    Actually the gleanons/ galcimytes would be the last of the prototypes we would need to hold to to that statement true, but what you are saying about finishing things that were never releaized in the past is exactly right and i feel the same way as you

    yes, exactly. Great point and I support this idea. Now, if they want to give us entirely new bits, great, but helping make more NA parts available is an awesome idea.

    Voted for this one too but I’d like to see an updated version somehow, a refresh or Classicized or something. This one just looks a little clunky. I like the idea behind it though

    I voted for him too and would definitely buy him--a water effect accessory to plug into his gun would be a nice touch too

    I still want this guy hes the last of the prototypes not to have a figure made. For that reason alone he should get one.

    I am not sure whether this nameless Evil Robot will or will not be released for the Classics toyline.
    If he does, he will not be squirting water just like the Classics versions of Kobra Khan and Dragon Blaster Skeletor.
