Shokoti for sure. That's one of the better filmation episodes and I prefer her design. I do think she'd need a little bit of extra costume detail for the proper MOTUC figure, though.
If Shokoti isn't made for MOTUC, I'll be deeply sad. She's not only my favorite Filmation exclusive villain, she's one of my favorite MOTU villains overall as well. I'd buy an Illumina toy, but won't lose any sleep if she isn't made.
I had to go with Shokoti on this one. Illumina is cool and I definitely want her in MOTUC but Shokoti is as iconic as it gets when it comes to Filmation only characters.
I can't really answer. I definitely prefer Shokoti as a character, but when I think about them as potential action figures, Illumina has a head start: she's pretty much guaranteed to a good-looking figure by my standards. I'm honestly worried about Shokoti, because the 4H are likely to go for a very high Filmation accuracy, which would lead into a very low-detail, even boring figure. Just compare the statue with the screen caps, and you'll notice that not one detail of the costume is actually fully accurate. The spauldron/epaulette things are actually just blue flat squares in the Filmation design! Would she even get a golden headdress, or would it be dull orange? If you look at her, there is not much difference between her and Adora except for the colors and a new head.
I voted for Shokoti but I think it's not fair to compare these two.
Shokoti is well known to be highly demanded by the fans.
The end results of this poll is evident from the start.
PS : Where does this statue come from?
It's amazing! I want one!!
Have no interest in Illumina at all ... sorry ...
My vote went to Shokoti for the fact that her look is far more unique and her bio and backstory wasn't shoehorned in to the myhtos to make her more important by tieing her to Castle Grayskull or Man-At-Arms as his trainer. Oh, and no Gar connection please as she doesn't need it.

Yeah, I can't vote. If I had two moms, this is like watching them fight. I don't like that.
Shokoti. I'm not really a 200x fan, so I have to go with the FILMation choice here. Even that aside, Illumina looks a little too World of Warcraft for my taste.
Hands down the vote goes to Shokoti considering she was featured in a cartoon. Plus MOTU needs more female villains...
Proud supporter of the Snake Men.
Most Wanted: Slave Girl, Crita, Lizorr, Tyrantisaurus Rex, Great Black Wizard, Darius, the rest of New Adventures.
Most Wanted Filmation: Lord Masque, Ileena, Granita, General Sunder, He-Man, Skeletor, Teela, Hordak head.
No Slave Girl? Watch us hurl!
A barbaric world without slave girls? That's truly barbaric!
It's a tough choice because I like both a lot!
I have to go with Shokoti because she featured in a cartoon with a decent amount of airtime and "The House of Shokoti" 2-parter is one of my favorite.
I still really want an Illumina figure as well! They would even compliment each other!
Like Darkspecter said, Illumina (Light) and Shokoti (Dark); "They would be perfect enemies"
MY MOTUC WANTS: Songster "Kevin Corrigan", Kittrina, Illumina, Master Sebrian, Sagitar, Kayo, Vizar, Nocturna, Spinwit, Artilla, Granita, Spritina, Sprag, Sprocker, KARG, Hunga the Harpy, Lodar, Green Reptile Mask of Power Demon, Purple Wolf Mask of Power Demon, Lizorr, Hoove, Quakke, Butthead, Staghorn, Dylamug, Colonel Blast, Monster Riders Of Morc

This poll shouldnt even be this close. If the Illuminuts didn't make it their mission.

200X Power Sword, 200X Toon, 200X Continuity.... Yeah, it's all about 200X!!
As much as I'd like to see Illumina get released, this isn't even a close one.
Give me SHOKOTI!!

I love both but Shokoti beat Illumina,
and it best be almost identical to that sexy custom
"A knight is sworn to valor. His heart knows only virtue. His blade defends the helpless. His word speaks only truth. His wrath undoes the wicked."
In principle I dislike these one or other polls (I want em all) but this is an easy win for Shokoti!
Grayskull needs its Cardboard Spacesuit MOTUCized
Voice your support in the Cardboard Spacesuit/Robot thread:
If I had to choose just one, I'd say Shokoti,
But I want both!
He who dies with the most MOTUC wins!
