    Favorite New Figure?

    Out of curiosity, what is everyone's favorite new figure? By new, I mean characters that are making their way into plastic form for the very first time thanks to MOTUC. This poll is only for figures that have been released so far.

    Feel free to either pick your favorite out of the bunch or simply list them in order of favorite to least favorite.

    Count Marzo for me, but KG is a close second!
    I'm hoping for a Disco Skeletor for the next subscription exclusive! Fully flocked!

    Voted for Adora but here's my list and why:

    Adora: It's Adam's Twin Sister! And she was my childhood crush before I figured out what a childhood crush was.
    Count Marzo: Big evil who is neither a Skele-flunkie, Horde lackey, Space Mutant or a Snakeman... He hates Mekaneck, created the Shadow beasts, Creepier than Hordak and Skeletor (Well the filmation version), He carries around a Medallion AND he has a pervy left hand.
    King Grayskull: It's the MOTU version of He-Dolph! (Hopefully I'll be able to snag a Santa KG.)
    He-Ro: Love him, hate the real name.
    Mo-Larr: Loved the skit, Love that the MOTUC figure kinda looks like Bruce Campbell. My MOTUC display has Mo-Larr working on TJ in the middle of a battle. (That's the Centerpiece.) He's not higher on the list cause he's not really MOTU and Adora is better.
    Wun-Dar: The Myth, The legend is finally a reality. (I do not own one) For a He-man Repaint, the fig is kinda neat. Shame that Mattel didn't REALLY invest in new tooling for him... (A more Savage head would've worked Wun-dars on him) I LOVE THE BREAD!!
    Carnivus: (or MOTUC Simba) An awesome looking fig, but not top of my I LOVE it list...


    I loathe Gygor and the Goddess.
    Gygor: Cool looking, but he does nothing for me. (Confused the heck out of me when Mattel claimed "We have very limited budget to sculpt X, but check out Gygor he's 100% new sculpt!")
    Goddess: Cool looking (For a Teela repaint cast in translucent plastic) but her hyperbreakability, release too close to Teela's, lack of useful accessories, redundancy since Teela + snake Armor = Goddess (and competing against Randor and Skeletor for my money)
    FINALLY!! GLIMMER IS IN MY SHELF!! Now I need a Crita!! Crita is to Mara what Evil Lyn is to Teela. If we ARE getting Mara, then we NEED Crita.

    Against the trend, I want for Green Goodess. Yes, a simple Teela repaint (and very brittle - mine fell from my computer speaker and broke her leg!), but anything pre-Filmation is good in my eyes!

    Haveta say tho, it was picking the best of a bad bunch. A lot of those characters on the list, although I've collected them, I really don't care for too much.

    I picked Adora, but she will have to move to second once Queen Marlena is made.

    Wun-Dar. To me he is the first He-Man to go evil...

    Gygor! He adds so much to a display. Towers over the other figures, looks incredible, and did I mention that he's a huge gorilla with a giant axe? Everything about Gygor screams 'awesome.'

    I was tempted to vote for Adora, but did not. I feel that she's integral to a MOTU display, as much as Adam is. She's IMPORTANT, but in no way (and this is ONLY my opinion) a nice figure. Mine has messed up legs so she can't stand well, first of all. But more importantly, she's boring. I just find her to be a fairly unappealing figure. More a necessity for my collection than a figure I really enjoy owning (like Gygor).


    Wun-Dar would have gotten second place for me if I'd voted for more than one figure. The fact that he even GOT a figure is pretty cool. And I like that Mattel attempted to incorporate him into the mythos while still doing little nods to his origin, like the WunDarBred logo on his armour.

    I'm taking Chief Carnivus' side on this one. I didn't think too much about this character when first announced but slowly over time, especially when .orgers started posting pictures, i was taken in hook, line and sinker. The way he's been sculpted, the look, the colours and the fact he's a Chief (well, not that much lol) are things i like in this figure.

    The other choices are great figues in their own right, but CC is the best one of the new figures for me thus far. I hoope Mattel have more unreleased or 200X figures (done in Classics style of course!) up their sleeve - after the ones already announced.

    I'm gonna have to go with Wundar here. I guess I liked the standard He-Man buck a lot when I was a kid, and I think his paint and colors are very well-done!

    While I agree with you that this makes Wun-Dar uniquely interesting, you have a thing for evil characters yes. Any heroic good eyes you like (Typed with humor)?

    Love:
    Count Marzo
    followed very closely by Chief Carnivus

    Happy with:
    Green Goddess (breakage issues drop her just a notch)
    King Grayskull (don't own him yet, may go higher)
    Wun-Dar (I don't own him, but I think he is good in a hilarious way)

    Ehh- not for me:
    Princess Adora- was hoping for updated look like Bow.
    Gygor- excellent sculpt, but I an not big into monkeys
    Mo-Lar- not a Roboto Chick fan- does nothing for me
