    The Official MOTUC Kayo Thread

    Now I have to admit, out of all characters in all of the Motu I think Kayo is the most boring of them all. I know nothing about this guy, what his special abilities are except hes a excellent space pilot. Anyone know anything else about this guy. He was one of three Galactic Guardians that got an upgrade from the Blacksmith of Cerelus, getting 2 shoulder mounted rockets. If they were to create this character, I would like to see him with that upgrade. For me he should be the last Character made from the existing NA Characters.

    I actually think Kayo/Tatarus is one of the more interesting of the Galactic Guardians, I just think his armor and helmet look more MOTU then some of the others. When I was a kid I always though his helmet looked like a Roman gladiator. Aside form being a good pilot I think he's meant to be really strong.

    Here is his vintage action figure bio:

    Kayo seemed to be the Galactic Guardian answer to Fisto and the "strong guy" before He-Man showed up. His crewcut, wifebeater and bionic balled up fists appear to mark him as a brawler of sorts.

    I actually kinda' liked his character in the Blacksmith of Cerelus/tournament episodes. A while ago, someone said they saw him as the "football player" He-Man figure. I found that kinda' charming, despite the fact that I hate football.

    My most wanted of the Galactic Guardians! He's pretty heavily promoted in comparison to the other early NA heroes (aside from Flipshot and Hydron of course) in the mini-comics, so we might see him sooner rather than later.

    Good observations, I always thought of him as the strongman of the team, but the comparison to Fisto is something I never considered.

    Kayo/ Tatarus is he really that lame?

    To be honest I don't think so but I ask because I keep reading/hearing Scott's comments referring to him as one of the NA characters that nobody seem to like or want and one that we probably won't get because of that
    ( This is not an attack in any mean I don't want to create controversy) I just want to know why and if is this how must of us think.

    So is it true that most of us fans don't want him? He does have a simple design but does that make him a lame character ?

    I really want to see Kayo in MOTUC what about you?

    I want Kayo as well
    In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan,
    Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone;
    Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow,
    In the bleak midwinter, long ago...
    ...a stable place sufficed.

    What can I give Him, poor as I am?
    If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb;
    If I were a Wise Man, I would do my part;
    Yet what can I give Him?....[I can] give my heart.

    I too prefer the mutants. Originally I was pretty anti-NA but so far the space mutants to come out have been amazing and turned me around on them. Flipshot unfortunately hasn't really and I'm really not that fond of most of the protector's designs. I'm sure the horsemen will do a great job, but there is only so much you can do with them I think.

    Time will tell I suppose.
    Right or wrong, buying a sub tells Mattel you want more MOTUC figures. Not buying does tells them you don't. Don't let MOTUC end early because you might not like their marketing strategy! Plus polls show you won't regret subbing!

    One of the true fan minority - happy MOTU fans!

    Well it's no secret I'm not an NA fan, but I wouldn't want to see a principle character not made for the NA fans. In fact this is the only NA character I knew of until recently because of his appearance in Emiliano's Homecoming comic.

    He may not be on the top 3 Most wanted NA characters, but he's pretty easy to make:

    Head(s): New
    Torso and abs: He-Man (Wifebeater painted on like KHM)
    Armor: New
    Shoulders: Trap Jaw
    Biceps: Roboto
    Forearms: Snout Spout
    Hands: Snout Spout
    Crotch:New
    Thighs: He-Man
    Shins: He-Man
    Boots: New
    Feet: Snout Spout
    Shoulder pads (IF they're NOT made as part of the armor): new
    Gun: New
    Shield: New
    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.

    Kayo is one of those guys in the background nobody seems to take notice of. I will gladly add him to my collection. I liked him ever since but compared to other Na-heroes like Hydron or even Darius Kayo is only on my b-sheet.
    Looking how poorly the Na-heroes are treated so far down the line i am afraid we will not likely see him in MotUC.
    @DO4M: They could use Sy-Klone or even Flipshot for the crotch peace wich makes it even easier to construct Kayo. The main problem is: he needs one helmeted and one unhelmeted head

    nonetheless: by now it seems as if Kayo is the easiest to make from the remaining few.

    He was the NA version of Fisto, basically, so I don't see ant reason not to eventually make him. Admittedly, he's not the most inspiring looking figure in the NA line, but I do hope that the line goes on long enough to see at least some of the NA humans like him made.

    I love Kayo.

    I had him as a kid. And I think he's an awesome character.

    He would be cheap to make too.

    My top NA wants are:

    Crita
    Flogg
    Quakke
    Tuskador
    Kayo
    NA Skeletor 1.0
    NA Sorceress (mini-comic)
    A Want List of Sorts: Peekablue, Saurod, Veena, Calix, Evilseed, 200X Head Pack, Mara, Point Dread & The Talon Fighter... and all the other POP & NA characters.

    Yes he should be made. I am not a NA fan. Now the 4H have made me like at less the muntants but not really feeling the humans but yes they should be made for the fans.

    Well, he does have that Jeff Hardy look going for him. Not sure if that's bad or good, though...

    I want Kayo too. My main reason is that he would be fairly easy to produce. I don't know why Mattel wouldn't do him actually, but I digress. I think we need Kayo mainly in the interest of balance. Of the mising NA characters I think we will absolutely see Flogg and Hydron, and I'd be wiling to bet that NA Skeletor will take up a quarterly variant slot next year. If we stop right there that would leave us 5 mutants and only 3 Galactic Protectors. Of the remaining options I believe Kayo and Vizar are the shoe-ins. I personally would really like to see Sagitar, Tuskador, Hoove, and Quakke also, but just to get an even 5 vs. 5 I think Kayo and Vizar make the most sense.

    I think it's the context. If you showed him without his accessories, he looks like a G.I. Joe in a wifebeater. Further, I think all of the Wave 2 Galactic Protectors (Kayo, Nocturna and Vizarr) really suffered from Jetlag skipping them for showcasing the Wave 3 Protectors (Artilla, Tuskador, Spinwit and Sagitar).

    I would want Kayo, but there's a few guys I'd like before him like Sagitar.

    He reminds me of a cybernetic gladiator which is what I think they were going for. After Hydron he is the next good guy from NA that I want. I loved his figure as a kid.
    I want NA Skeletor and Rio Blast and I want them now!

    I absolutely like Kayo (although as I'm from Germany he always has been Tartarus for me^^) and want a figure of him. I have alwalys played him as the powerhouse of the team (well, on second place behind He-man , of course) because of his tank top and his gladiator/american football styled armor. And IMO he belongs to the main team of galactic protectors. I would be really sad if he won't make it into a figure!
