YAAAAAA!!! More black MOTUC characters!
Since everyone is clamoring for Filmation characters, I want Melaktha in MOTUC... The Eternian Archeologist needs a thread so here it is...
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.
YAAAAAA!!! More black MOTUC characters!
The Blonde Teela Thread
The Cloak and Dagger Evil-Lyn Thread
Sagitar (Jetlag) Horde Wraiths Azdar Belzar Chazdar Cloak and Dagger Evil-Lyn 200X Teenage Prince Adam 200X Teenage Teela 200X Sorceress General Rattlor (MYP) 200X King Randor and Queen Marlena 200X Battle Armor King Randor and Battle Armor Queen Marlena Ice Armor He-Man WMD Roboto
He wouldn't be that hard to make in MOTUC:
All he'd need is:
New "shirt" (Probably non-removable like KH)
New "Loincloth" (Similar to Bow's)
He'd probably reuse the Flat Hordak Abs, Keldor or Bow Boots with Grizzlor feet Triklops arms (IF they don't give him the bare reusable on Oo-Larr Arms. The sleeves would be painted)
This is one I hope they'd do a bit of a Randor treatment on to make him look cooler as a figure. Mattel didn't use Filmation's simplified Henry VIII costume for Randor's figure, and I think it was a good move (they kept the colors though, which was also good). Melaktha could look like a generic Eternian wearing a golf shirt if they're not careful.
Which means he'd need to accessorize... As long as he doesn't come with a Stanlan pack in... characsessory... I'm cool with Melaktha... Well Stanlan could use the infamous Teen buck, but that's a post for another thread...
Melaktha could be a great character (storywise)
Wait! No, guys, NO!
We can't...... ADD TO HIM! We might as well make a whole new character! I mean, creating weapons and expanding on his character is.... just.... NOT RIGHT.
Sorry, NO. You can't have him. He's not "action figure-y" enough.
And not to be a downer, but I'm not in favor of obscure characters.
He's awesome! I totally gotta have a figure of this guy!

I agree with Gbagok. A lot of the filmation simplified designs need to be "translated" into toy form. Sort of like what toyguru said about putting things through a "MOTUC machine" to make them fit into the line. But they still need to keep the same colors and overall look that they had.
honestly I never liked this guy he was kind of a jerk

please check out my fan fics at:
I very much like Melaktha, and his costume, but he could come with armor pieces... he comes across entities like Lord Masque & Shokoti for goodness' sake.
He is an archaeologist on Eternia, a planet with innate magical properties. He must be better protected than he looks in those street-clothes.
Though, if they did produce him in his cartoon outfit, I'd be just fine with that.
He could come with any number of interesting Eternian artifacts!

I always thought Melaktha was just Clamp Champ with a new gimmick
many may not welcome Melaktha as a figure but i really like the guy. i would buy a motuc figure of him. hes simple but i like like that about him.
I have always been a fan of Melaktha, and would buy him in a hot second. When I was a kid there was a rumor around the school yard that there was a figure of him, but I knew better.
About Stanlan, what exactly is his relation to Melaktha? Is he just a student, or an adopted son?

Bring on Melaktha! I'd like to see him in figure form.
If Mattel gets the filmation rights, such figures would be a reason i would not take a subscribtion again. Sorry but thats my opinion. For me, he looks just boring
If that's what he looks like, no way.
He would have to come with his apprentice too. But yes - I like Melaktha
I'm in! I echo megagearmax's sentiments, and I always liked the character too. good to have another 'brain' aside from MAA.
CHECK OUT MY BRAND NEW WEBSITE for my Akil and Saltfish comic strip, more to come soon!
I've got everything that I need, right in front of me! Life's a happy song people!
Fear is faith in failure
Yeah, i got to agree with MGM and krosfyah for the same reasons, plus it would be cool to get some older characters into the line as well
Yes to Melaktha! He's the Indiana Jones of MOTU!

Not all archeologists need a fedora and a bullwhip to be cool...
