    Cambro MOTUC "Support" Thread.

    I would love to get a giant Cambro figure for MOTUC. As you can see from the second photo, he is quite a bit bigger than He-Man. I always wanted him back in the 80's, and hopefully we can finally get him in figure form.





    Let the countdown to kylun flac's "No" begin.

    This was a very memorable episode of the show. I think it aired on my city's affiliate dozens of times.

    Yeah, I like him. He would be a neat addition to the good guy's team.

    I think he was also in another episode as The Tingler and with another name.

    He is such a lovable giant. I think he would look great in figure form.

    Cambro has my full support!!!

    I was going to start this thread a couple of weeks ago. He's one of my personal top 3 most wanted characters. I'd be ecstatic if he got a $30 beast slot!

    Meh...I'd buy him if made, but I won't lose any sleep if he's not.
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    I can support this, he'd make an awesome looking figure. And they can reuse the buck for the Tingler, and maybe Dragoon too.

    I'd buy this guy. He's been on my mind lately as well but I could not think of his name(s).

    His buck could definitely be reused.

    They could definitely get some use out of his buck. I hope ToyGuru is reading this, and passes the word to Mattel.

    Hm, all due respect, I think we're really stretching these "support threads" with this one.

    I wouldn't call this stretching it. He had a very memorable episode, and his character really stood out, maybe just to me. Shokoti probably had about as much screen time as Cambro, and I would want her. His name may not be as memorable as hers, but I think old school fans would definitely remember his look. At least he is not someone who has a microscopic pic in a mini comic pulling on a rope, now that is worthless.

    Yeah, it's actually this "version" of him I love. I assume he's just a very poor character model reuse. DOnt know which one was first.

    But at any rate, this is and always has been on the highth of my want list from Filmation when that was brought up, for heroes. But I either skipped mentioning him because I couldnt remember his name or his episode(s) or just said "that big gentle giant guy.

    Yeah, he'd need a new buck, but he'd be cool.

    That's a bit of a problem though, isn't it? He's not giant-sized, but certainly bigger than the average figure...about Gygor's size. But as far as I can see, the Gygor buck wouldn't be an option for Cambro.
    So as you say, he'd need an entirely new buck. That's a tall order for a rather obscure character.

    I think he'd make for a good figure though, don't get me wrong.

    No don't really want this guy - nor any of the fluffy, goofy, baby characters from Filmation.

    I would love Cambro; the only thing bigger than his body was his brain and his heart. I always regretted we never saw him again (Tingler re-use not counting), as getting him and Duncan together likely would have left everyone scratching their heads from all the technobabble between them...

    We've got some bigger parts from Leech that would work well here, so he wouldn't even need a whole new body.

    I thought he would get more support than he has so far. I guess I don't have the right touch with picking characters like everyone else does, for some reason?

    There are more interesting giants to release first, in my opinion. Azdar, Bezdar and Chadzar, Procrustus...

    If Cambro must be made, then I think it should be at the end of the line, and after 2018 anyway.

    Cambro is not as big as those giants. But as for interesting, Azdar, Bezdar, and Chazdar are about as interesting as a bucket of water. As for Procrustus, what did we ever see from him but a couple pictures in a mini comic. Now Cambro had a "very" memorable role in the episode that revolved around him. But again, I guess I must see things differently then others here.
