    The Official GARTH Thread



    This is my favorite cameo character on Filmation's Masters of the Universe. I've thought that if Filmation becomes possible, that he would make an amazing figure.

    He has the butterfly/human male appearance, but he started off looking more insectoid. If they did a figure of him, they might could find a way to make a "morphing" figure where you can change out a few pieces and add the wings to create the more well known, post-transformation GARTH.

    Is anyone else a fan of Garth?

    ***Edit: I'm not sure who did this rendition of him in the pic above, but they really showed how AWESOME he could be. Filmation's version was not as detailed!

    Of course i want him. He appeared in 2 episodes! Definitely needs some 4H update, but he is a cool character to have.

    I want him in the line, but I want him to have a cooler name.

    It would be cool if his "Real Name" were "Garth," but his toy name were something else.

    They could reuse the wings for Flutterina.

    What episodes is he from? I really am not as familiar with him and with his designs, you'd think he'd be more memorable. I'd definitely want a butterfly version.
    Could we get some Meteorbs, Please???!!!

    I would most definitely want him in the line if Filmation becomes doable. I think the Fab Four could pull a Bow with him, taking the original design and doing their magic with it.

    Down.

    Winged figures are always awesome. I'd totally team him up with Buzz Off. The Filmation episode he appears in is a good one.

    I agree. I think the image I used in the first posting is an ideal concept for him. The Filmation look has great potential, but it lacks some things.

    Garth's pre-transformation "bug form" is an interesting thing, as well. That would make an interesting action figure. He looked like that through most of his first episode.

    That custom carded figure is pretty amazing! I like both versions, but I hope there might be a way for them to do a Glen/Marlena thing with him...

    Garth is cool. I like him.
    But I got to say we already have plenty of flying heroes. Also hes falls into the category being similar to Buzz-Off, Sweet Bee & Flutterinia.
    I would still be happy if we got him, but there are so many figures I would much rather have.
    Skeleton-Warriors, Ra-Jar, Spinwit, Rock Golem, Evil Seed, Lord Masque, Prahvus, General Tartaran, Hawke, Slob-Boar, King Agho, Hunga the Harpy, Sh'gora, Masks of Power Demons, Nocturna, Lizzor, Horde Wraiths, Sagitar, Crimson Fury, Lodar, Vizar, Angast, Negator, Melaktha, ABC Giants, Stridor

    Having re-watched his episode over the weekend, I'd love a Garth figure, he'd be pretty easy to do, just requires a new head and wings.

    Support for Garth in MOTUC

    Welp, apparently looking up garth in the thread search function isn't enough to find the Garth thread. Anyway, I throw support behind him.

    Me, too. If they felt that he should have both, they could do a swappable head, armor, and extra arms or something. It wouldn't be perfect, but I always wanted the post-transformation Garth. He could fly and looked to fit in better in the line that way.

    I really hope that Garth makes it into the line, he was cool in the Filmation Cartoon. I agree with the other people who have said that the Four Horsemen could do great things with this character, both versions would be cool and say a lot about the diversity of cultures on Eternia, imo.

    Take Care,
    Darren
    Mattel please, buy the He-Man and She-Ra cartoons from Entertainment Rights. If you owned Both Filmation related "MotU" cartoons, plus "NA" and "MYP" cartoons, you would be able to distribute any or all 4 cartoons to Television in the lead up to another relaunch or a live action movie. Plus, you could include Filmation and "NA" animated characters in "MotU:C"!

    Long Live 'MOTU'!
