    Minox official support thread

    It's time to take the bull by the horns!
    An evil robotic minotaur who serves Skeletor? Yes, please!
    Minox appeared in the 80's Italian Magic Boy comics, where he battled He-Man.
    The character is pretty obscure, but he'd look super cool as a figure. See King Tamusk's figure design below.
    A cyborg Minotaur would be pretty darn groovy IMO, and would be a relatively low-tool figure to make.

    When I read "Cyborg Minotaur" I thought of this immediately.




    Any Minotaur figure would be cool. I kind of like the idea of him having visible cyborg parts like the TMNT figure as well though.

    If there is one thing that MOTUC needs, it's some international comic representation. I never even knew about Minox, but he has jumped up there with Snake Goddess and Crimson Fury as characters I would love to have!

    What an awesome design!

    SONGSTER, EVIL ROBOT, SAGITAR, ARTILLA, UNCLE MONTORK & DREE-ELLE, TUVAR, BADDHRA, SLIME PIT BONE WARRIOR,

    I think this would be great as an addition to classics, and on the plus side it could get us closer to the 200x minataur leader for the council of eternal, or vice versa. In this case I want him to immortalized in plastic.

    I support this. He'd go well with the Mythic Legions minotaurs.

    Well, given that we are out of vintage Evil Warriors (except for a few variants) if we want to have one of Skeletor's minions in the lineup from time to time, we have to go for media characters. Minox is a good choice. Classic theme, impressive look. I would buy him.

    He has a Masters of the Universe Classics Bio in the encyclopedia. I feel it's safe to say that in Minox's case, it's only a matter of "when," and not "if."

    Yeah, he'd be cool. I love the Mythic Legions Minotaur, but I'd love to see a more MOTUC take on a minotaur!

    Keep in mind though, Character Guide entries can also refer to characters who were mentioned in other bios. It isn't a guarantee that a figure is planned. Given that Minox's Classics entry is so short, it's a pretty safe bet that he was simply referenced in an upcoming bio for one of the already-announced figures.

    To me, Minox is one of those characters that would just be nice to have to help fill out ranks, but is not a top want in my book. He certainly has a MOTU vibe, but at the same time, his head is almost entirely animal-like, whereas most other MOTU characters that are heavily animal-based do have some more human or cartoony features to them, mostly in the eyes or mouth. Minox is an ox head on a human-esque body.

    I think he'd be cool to have, but I don't mind waiting a long time for him either.
    Most wanted: 1) Lizorr, 2) Sagitar, 3) King Miro, 4) Hunga, 5) Hoove, 6) Kayo, 7) Artilla, 9) Master Sebrian, 10) Masks of Power Demons, 11) Twiggets, 12) Raj-Jar, 13) Hans Hammerholder, 14) Staghorn, 15) Spinwit, 16) Kittrina, 17) Vizar, 18) Butthead, 19) Nocturna, 20) Melaktha, 21) Stridor, 22) Uncle Montork & Dree-Elle, 23) ABC Giants

    Oh yes please! How have we made it through literally decades of MotU without ever getting a Minotaur figure…let alone a cyborg minotaur figure! He'd be an awesome addition!
    200X fan? Classic fan? What does that mean? I'm a MotU fan!!!

    I think I would want him as organic character. Maybe even as an oversized character.


    I would name him Dwayne Johnson. You know, the Brama bull. Besides they both have a slightly darker color tone.

    I was really disappointed by how small these guys are compared to MOTU. He looks like a calf next to He-Man. I prefer the Castle of Power Minotaur head.

    Oh, that kinda sucks. I just preorder the he-man, Skeletor, and some kind of bull looking guy as my first Mythic Legions guys. That's the first negative I've heard about them.

    They're good figures, they're just not as MOTU-adjacent as I had hoped for. The skeletons and dwarves look great next to MOTU, but the armored humans look pretty bad. Funny thing is that they all use the same torso. It's just way too small and thin for a human characters. The bare chested humans and minotaurs are a little closer but they still don't blend.

    I'd like to see Minox made. I kinda think of Minox like I do Goat Man. A cool character that wasn't seen in the show but was shown in other media. I have Goat Man and I like him sooooooo....... bring on Minox too.
    I have finally returned from Despondos.
