    I don't think I'd want an armored up Melaktha. Just the plain clothes version. Pack him with Masque and you'd guarantee sales.

    And yes, he was a jerk. If Moss Man wasn't so zen he would have knocked Melaktha's teeth out.
    yeah, this guy is lame. i don't lame non-powered people, we already got the old man dekker, we don't need another useless human.

    I think this would boost his appeal. If we could get the message to the 4H & to Matty that mech armor would make Melaktha more appealing this might win a huge support for this guy. Come on this guy has a lot of potential as a character & to the motu mythos. Cant let his boring clothing attire hold him back from getting made.
    I wholeheartedly disagree. What makes Melaktha great is that he ISN'T in a mechsuit. This just makes him generic when he stands out as the Filmation design as a scholar, and not a warrior. Not every character has to be a fighter to be cool or important. He doesn't use weapons or magic, but he does have knowledge and wisdom. Those are powerful characteristics as well.

    I like to think of Melaktha & Dunkan (M@A) as very similar. Melaktha borrowing from M@A's weaponry. After all he has to be prepared for anything in the remote places of Eternia were danger is every where. not to mention traps & monsters are probably a regular thing for him.

    Is there any hope that we will get Melaktha ?

    I hope we will get him before it all ends :-)

    I'd like to see him in the line. He wouldn't been an exciting design, but the Four Horsemen could add some cool accessories (artifacts) and maybe even give him a mask/alternate head. Perhaps warrior Melaktha? Hey, historians and anthropologists are cool (Indiana Jones)!

    I think giving him loads of cool artifacts is the way to go. He is an easy figure to make with little new tooling and to make him a warrior or something would take away from who he is as a character.

    Yes! I would love to get him and also other Filmation like Dylamug, Ileena, Delora... I hope there will be another Filmation sub. Many great Filmation Characters which will be awesome figures!
    Melaktha could come with the golden Masks of power! This would be awesome to get these Masks from Deimos and Turella!!

    When I saw that the Battle Ram came with another Man At Arms I thought to myself "Should have been Melaktha with the Battle Ram instead of another variant". With that opportunity passed I do't think we'll ever see Melaktha in Classics--maybe under the rebrand presuming its not a complete restart.

    Probably not - he wouldn't even be an A list Filmation figure.

    This is actually my most wanted figure. Theres something cool to me about having a non powered human along side of He-Man.

    I don't think we will see him in the 2015 sub but they could do a SDCC two pack with him & Lord Masque who a lot of people want still and that would be a perfect two pack and call it "House Of shokoti" Two pack
    Looking forward to the entire 2014 & 2015 line

    I wish! I really doubt it, though. I love the idea of having him come with artifacts...maybe even some sort of "enchanted armor" he might have found on a dig. They could have him helping defend Eternia after He-Man leaves for Primus. They'd surely never go that far, but I think the potential is there.

    Him coming with the Battle ram is a great idea actually.

    I think a Melaktha head would be a great idea. His design is pretty simple, but with a head we could pop him on a Palace guard or even Dekker. I know it's not perfect, but would it be a good enough compromise?

    I hope so, he was in the filmation cartoon more than most of the 80s line of figures and he spoke more words on screen than any other character with his screen time. I would like him to come with some artifacts as well. Maybe that Jade Cat statue? It think that's what it was called.

    Considering he was in several episodes of the Filmation series, I definitely think he deserves to be made. However, his relative blandness is what works against him, and why I have doubts that he will ever get made. I would like him, though. Certainly if Dekker got made, Melaktha deserves to be.

    I definitely would like to get a figure of him. I think he's an interesting and unique character and one I always remembered as a kid. I agree with including some cool artifacts with him. I'm sure the 4 Horsemen could come up with some interesting costume design ideas to make him exciting. He could perhaps have more defensive capabilities rather than offensive. Knowledge is power, right?

    Zero interest in this extra lame character, I would rather see so many others including variants and 2.0 versions before getting regular guy.

    Melaktha would be an even harder sell than Dekker. At least Dekker can fight...

    Melaktha is basically a civilian who doesn't fight.

    Nope, not a ounce of interest in this figure. If I don't have my rock girl Granita, then there is no way I want to shell out for this dud.
