    Gygor or Shadow Beast?

    Now that we have both, which MOTUC Beast sized figure do you prefer and why?

    I voted for Shadow Beast.

    Although I think Gygor is amazing, I've wanted a Shadow Beast for about 20 years!!

    Shadow Beast rules the school, I always wanted beasts for Beastman to command, and who the H is Gygor anyway? (That's a rhetorical question.)

    This was a hard one! Do I prefer a giant gorilla wearing a cape with fur the same color as urine or a monster from my favorite toy based cartoon of all time???

    As much as I love the Shadow Beasts(toon & toy), I have to give it to the big ape.

    Shadowbeast, because his facial expression is more neutral. I couldn't handle Gygor's rage.
    Ask not for whom MOTUC is made, it's made for thee.

    If you have to disclaimer your like, then you don't really like it.

    Nice dude. I voted for Gygor and just tied up the poll! I love Shadow Beast and actually just got him in today, but Gygor is more visually appealing.

    Neither. Waste of plastic/figure development slots.

    Would rather have had Ram-Man or Leech. I would not have missed either of these figures if they had never been made.

    Interesting how close this poll has been going.

    I picked the Shadow Beast for several reasons. The Shadow Beasts are more known than Gygor ever was. They were a Filmation-born creature who returned in the MYP series. And now, in the MOTUC "canon", they are a Count Marzo creation so I was really happy with that.

    Gygor is an awesome looking figure though. Sweet colors and accessories and a prototype from the vintage line.

    I can see why it is a very close poll.

    I got the Shadow Beast today. He's cool, but a bit boring compared to Gygor.

    Shadow Beast for me. Even though they are a Fillamation design, I could easily see them in pre-fillamation mini-comics

    The MOTUC line and all its fans were taken for the ass

    I personally would have to pick Gygor, it's just something about his color scheme that wins me over.

    Love them both, but I love Gygor more: splendid details (not that Shadow Beast doesn't have great details), love the concept (fighting Oo-Larr and stuff), totally love the facial expression - that furious rage... He's that close to foaming and frothing from the mouth.

    Woah...shocked at all the votes for Gygor. I thought it would be Shadow Beast by a landslide!

    Anyway, Shadow Beast for me: cool, creepy, evil, dangerous, wicked awesome spiked club.

    I think Gygor looks so ****** off because he can't figure out if his parents are Sprite or 7-Up! I kid, I kid.

    For me it's Gygor. I see him as an actual villain, almost like a MOTU version of Gorilla Grodd. Shadow Beasts are basically just generic creatures for Beast Man to control. They also have a far more boring colour scheme than Gygor.

    Shadow beast has the tenure here... it's been seen more, it's been a part of the standard history...

    But it's a mook.

    ONE shadow beast is nothing... there needs to be 5-10 of the things to be a real threat.

    Gygor has the armor, the weapons, and is an individual. There's something about Gygor that makes him unique and therefore more interesting to me than shadowbeast #4 over there...

    Shadow Beast....Gygor just doesn't do anything for me, he's a bright yellow gorilla...plus..I don't really know who he is...and Shadow Beast just looks better.

    If this poll is accurate..why are there so many cheap Gygors running around that can't be sold? And I hardly see any Shadow Beasts..
    Recent....Unnamed One & Hydron
    Coming....
    Wanted....Entrapa, Double Trouble, Light Hope, Filmation Hordak & Clawful
    Considering....
    Needed....Dragstor

    Oh man, did I forget to use these [sarcasm][/sarcasm] again? Sorry....
