    Who else could the Gygor mold be used for?

    Based on this question from Poe Ghostal's site:

    4.) Since keeping costs down through re-use of existing tooling is a big factor in this line, is it safe to assume you have plans for other large beasts using Gygor’s parts?

    Maybe…though I doubt we would tool a whole gorilla if we didn’t have other plans for the basic parts…

    Well, that sounds like they have some plans, but I'm asking you uber-fans out there-- who else could be made with that tooling? I admit it, I'm stumped, but I imagine there was probably a character or two from the 200x series that would work. Any ideas?

    Not in MOTU, but they could use the mold for other Mattel properties. Like DC Comics: Grodd, Ultra-Humanite and Solivar(!).

    Maybe the mold could be used for a Kulatak, too

    Shadow Beasts.

    Heck, with some creativity, there's a variety of monsters we could get out of a lot of the mold I think. (swap heads, hands n' feet, etc.)

    Examples:

    They could use it for all kinds of characters. The entire Gor family:

    By-Gor, Dy-Gor, Ly-Gor, My-Gor, Sy-Gor, Ty-Gor, and Billy.

    I suggest you google for Little Red Monkey.

    All excellent suggestions, I must say.

    And I think I know another one actually. How about a Kulatak-warrior? You know, the creatures that look sort of like a cross between sheep, polar bears, and giant sloths. ( they live in the Ice Mountains and were featured in the episode Trust, with Ice Armour He-man)

    A new head, some new lower arms, maybe feet, and voilá!

    Many of us have always considered Beast Man a gorilla/neanderthal type character, especially the MYP version. Why not an orange gorilla with Beast Man's trademark white/blue face?

    Beast Man as actual giant ape!

    I just want more apes.

    i did an image search for the Shadow Beast and all I found were custom figures and Filmation stills. Given that Filmation figures are off limits, is Shadow Beast even an option?

    the shadow beasts also appeared in the MYP cartoon so they are fair game.

    I heard Mattel is branching out for new con exclusives since we've got Mo-Larr coming. Next year we're going to have South Park invade MOTUC and ManBearPig is going to be the first figure.

    Shadow Beasts are practically a shoe-in, so is the Ice Breaker. It'd be crazy if the Meteorbs were created as large scale beasts and we got Cy-Gor first.

    Ice Hackers, the Goddess' "shaggy foe," and Shadow Beasts are musts for me! I want all sorts of mini-comic monsters in this line.

    Kulatuks would be fantastic as well.
    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 personally can only see him being re-used for Shadow Beasts. I can only find Filmation pictures though:
