    Do you like Draego-Man's name?

    Yes or no? I don't feel his name fits. I'm indifferent towards the character, though I did consider buying him to do a custom. There is just something about his name that I feel doesn't work. Just off the top of my head I'm thinking of

    Dragonus
    Dray-Goon or Dray-Gun (Goon if u want to play off the fact that he is a minion of Skeletors or if you're sensitive about the word gun, also could be a play on ray gun, but he doesn't have a sci-fi look to him... kind of wish he did.
    Burn-Out

    PS: Not a fan of Demo-Man's name either, and it looks like other fans aren't. If he is supposed to be Skeletor, I'm sure something else could have been concocted.

    I voted it is ok. I actually call him Draego. I think the man part makes it a little too cheesy

    I was indifferent at first, it's a MOTU name for sure unlike mighty spector, and way better than Demo-Man, but after reading the bio I love it. he was a creation, a hybrid dragon and man, i think it's perfect.

    Works for me!
    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 kind of agree with krosfyah; the bio made me like the name a bit more, but I'll be calling him DRAEGOR, just like I call Demo-Man: DEMOR.

    Draego Man's nice and fits the figure well, but IMO, they could also just drop the "Man" part and just call him Draego.

    I don't really get the name "Draego-Man". Just sounds odd to me. Draego would have been a better name, or just Drago-Man.

    Not really opposed to the "Man" suffix. I actually think it's a nice throwback to many of the characters and figures we had in the past, such as He-Man, Moss Man, Mer-Man, Ram Man, Count Marzo Man etc. Therefore, I have no problem with Draego-Man. Another argument: he's part human, part dragon (a Dragoon...?) so again, the "Man"-part is not weird, imho.

    it's ok. Since it is MOTU I dont mind the names. Already plenty of precedent of wacky naming conventions. So it fits well enough.

    I will say that when it comes to Dragon type characters I hate when any form of "Dragon" is a part of their name, (Draego, Draco, Drago, Draken, ect) but because it is masters, it's fine.

    I think that they maybe should have gone with Draego alone, but I understand the Man just fine. As I said, wacky naming conventions. So he fits right in with Beast, Demo, Mer, and others.

    I WAS gona say it was just "okay"...but then I thought about it. I thought about the other names in the vintage line, and how I just can't think of anything that would work better for the style of names that they went with back then. They usually kept it simple. There was "Man" in there sometimes, and other times it was self explanitory and something a kid could instantly understand. Mekaneck, for instance. Sounds like it might be complicated but you get it right away. Man-E-Faces. Right there. Kobra Khan - he's a snake. If they gave Draego-Man a more "name" sounding name - like something that might sound like a dragon's name - then it wouldn't feel like it was from the vintage line. I think Draego-Man serves it's purpose perfectly. Draego sounds like a name, but also sounds like "dragon!" Fits right in with the simplistic naming theme of the old toyline.

    I'm alright with it. Having the "man" on the end doesn't matter to me since he is part "man".

    At least it's not Dragon-Man.

    I just call him Draego. I can see how the added 'man' is reminiscent of 80s characters but this isn't the 80s lol.

    It's not the best name, but if fits with the other names. Also I can't come up with a better one.

    its all right. I'd like something more fitting than a play on words saying dragon man. but it works.

    It's not bad, but I like Draegor better.
    Right or wrong, buying a sub tells Mattel you want more MOTUC figures. Not buying does tells them you don't. Don't let MOTUC end early because you might not like their marketing strategy! Plus polls show you won't regret subbing!

    One of the true fan minority - happy MOTU fans!

    I think Dragoon would have been a much better name for Draego-Man (named after the character from Filmation's MotU cartoon episode "Dawn of Dragoon").

    It's okay. I'm very impressed with the figure, as well as the additional weapons- they really make the figure complete! I may decide to rename him at some point- I do have three of them, so some distinction will have to be made, along with some painted differences...
