    The MOTUC Melaktha thread

    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.

    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)
    New head
    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)
    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.

    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.



    J/K!

    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.

    Agreed.

    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

    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?

    The priority there was cost-saving, though - they reused Jitsu's armour. The equivalent here would probably involve Prince Adam's waistcoat... (just as Marlena's MotUC "spacesuit" bears a distinct resemblance to her daughter's clothing!)

    Oh-ho-ho, the gauntlet has been thrown down!!! Hahaha.

    In all serious though, I think if Melaktha gets a figure, it should be in a 3-pack with Masque and Shokoti.

    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.

    I'm in! I echo megagearmax's sentiments, and I always liked the character too. good to have another 'brain' aside from MAA.

    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

    The result for Randor though was a more action figure-worthy design. I really don't think that a Randor figure even now in MOTUC with that original Filmation costume would look good at all. I think Melaktha's Filmation design is better than that, but also still quite boring. But whatever, people are supportive of a Filmation character, and I'm glad to see that at least.

    No, but in a line full of monsters and barbarians and robots and aliens, something more than a short-sleeved shirt and trousers would be nice just the same.
