    Satma 2016

    I know very little about the German comics and audio, but am liking the characters I'm seeing in the polls. Chief among these is Satma I not only hope he gets a figure in 2016, he may get my vote for President.
    What do we know about this guy? Where does he fit into the the overall story? Would you buy this figure some time down the road?
    Satma needs to happen. I will mow your lawn for life, Scott.

    I'm gonna try to sum the important things up in a nutshell.

    Satma appears only in #34 of the German audio plays.
    He is the ruler of the Hyperspace. He resides in a fortress that looks almost like Grayskull, but with horns, and commands warriors more gruesome than even Skeletor's Evil Warriors. Interesting is that Satma motivates his warriors by promising them gold.



    Satma's appearance actually isn't explained much at all. When seeing him first, Man-At-Arms mistakes him to be Skeletor. He-Man then corrects him, stating that he "looks like Skeletor, but he's not". To which Orko adds that "he has two horns... he's the devil!". Maybe the name Satma actually might have been a tweak from "Satan" by the author. Because of that, I have sort of an issue with the picture from the .org poll - it's merely one fan interpretation, just as this one is:



    Satma's figure could come with Icebird and the Power Sword of Evil. It's weapon whose blade is clad in "hyperspace ice". Said weapon plays a crucial role, when Dragstor brings it to Skeletor in episode #33. Skeletor hits He-Man slightly with the sword, to which He-Man then falls into a nigh-dead shape. Icebird is made from hyperspace ice and has the ability to teleport into Hyperspace. In #33, he teleports Buzz-Off and Moss Man, and later He-Mans power sword into Hyperspace. That's the reason why the heroes go into Hyperspace in #34. Many German fans already regard Nepthu's Diamond Zoar as their Icebird.

    "Why's Dragstor riding on Night Stalker?" "Cause he can."

    I am all about this guy, whoever made the fan created drawing in the encyclopedia, did an amazing job and sold me on this guy, even if he ends up being a custom. I would even say throw him in for 2016.

    I think he ended up in my top ten in the second round poll? Who the heck drew those audio play covers? Those look like children's water color paintings?!?!

    I always try to look back to old material and make sense of it when explaining characters and such and I just remembered this. Although I Love clawfu drawing I would rather them go with this vintage piece of art work as it really depicts a skeletor look alike and he comes from the original art work for torak, The idea for he heman came from this.

    I would be fine getting this design as well. I placed it pretty high on that MEGA POLL LIST. Obviously at this juncture unless he is unlikely, and frankly though very cool still pretty low on my list of wants. But as far as it goes, we could do worse. I would like some representation from the German sources.

    Actually the pic i posted looks alot like the pic sir reilly posted of the castle looks like that Satma lives in on the cover of the audio play on the second post, so it would work out nicely.
