    Garn vs Garn

    Now that we have Filmation rights which version of Garn will you prefer to have in MOTUC?
    The mini comic version or the Filmation version?

    They are both cool but I'm sure you must like one more than the other, so which version is your favorite and why?

    FILMATION



    MINI-COMIC

    Both would make awesome figures, and if Mattel wanted to make them two seperate characters, that would be my wish. If I had to pick, I would go with Filmation because the MC version resembles Geldor fairly closely so I would want him to look different from him. Plus, I think the FilMation character development is a bit better and the MC one might take a little bit away from Lodar. I would be cool with a combined bio too if they only went with one of them.

    Mini comic, please. I like the design much better than filmation.
    Photog is here! thank you, Mattel!

    Now how about some mini-comics love (like Lodar, Geldor, Dakon......)? And Mermista?

    My vote goes to mini-comic. Love the mohawk and the attire.

    Here's my idea:

    Base Garn off the mini-comic, but have his skin colour between Filmation and mini-comic. Dark, but not TOO dark. Make his boots King Hiss colour (still fringe design, because that's cool). For his armour, it will be a ONE piece outfit that will have a clasp at the back (like Bubble Power She-Ra's armour). Give him the Filmation extra head and one-piece armour as well. BAM two Garn's in one.

    I prefer the mini-comic version, more detailed but not hyper anime. Are they both the same character?

    This goes for pretty much every one of the main characters, as well.

    Hard to say. I really like the Filmation design, but the mini comic one is more interesting overall. The Horsemen will have a tough time with this. Rana is much easier, I want her mini comic form much more than Filmation's Rhea stand-in (although they could be different characters, but if I have to choose between two obscure figures then Rana has it).

    I want Queen Balina and Lodar both though. No "can only have one or the other" garbage!

    So far the mini-comic version seems to be the most liked.
    His design is really cool. I wonder if we'll ever see him in figure form.

    We haven't got an original mini-comic character yet in MOTUC.

    BOTH! Like MEF, do an inbetween skin tone and provide a second head and chest armor with his accessories. I really love the Filmation Garn, but the Native American Garn is waaay cooler! Both are fantastic!

    Mini-Comic version is my favorite. However, throw in the Filmation head to satisfy everyone.

    Two pack

    One a black Aztec guy(well that's what he looks like to me) and a light skinned Native American.

    And it's by an amazing coincedence they are both named Garn. WHAT? you think you're the only one called Bob, Bill, Fred or Frank?

    This allows another black character to be in the line and allows a new one to join in the form of the Native American.

    If they did a second head and chest armor and did only one release, many people would buy 2 or 3!

    There we go! I believe I was for this idea in the last thread that talked about Garn. There is very little differences between the two; I say just give 'em both options in one package and throw a little nod in the bio as to why he has two looks.

    I totally want the mini comics GARN.


    That said, I'm not against the FILMATION version. If we can get them both, then that's a win/win.

    Filmation because his character is actually more expanded and he becomes a king...Actually you could have both

    I like the mini-comics version better, he's got a cool look to him.
    Ask not for whom MOTUC is made, it's made for thee.

    If you have to disclaimer your like, then you don't really like it.

    Thanks!

    Garn is one of the highly memorable characters from the He-Man cartoon. In my city, that episode aired a lot, and I remember getting to the point where I could quote the whole thing.

    I didn't have that mini-comic, but I definitely think that he (with Rana, for sure!) would make fantastic action figures.

    For me, getting parts to make both versions in one package would be amazing.

    As my buddy DS and many others have said, this would be the way to go. An easy two for one deal. Shoot, the Bio could be written broadly enough to cover both versions. Sure, two characters with the same name? No problem! Just think if how Smith is for us, or Antilles is for the GFFA.

    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 choose Filmation Garn. I prefer that look for him. I also enjoyed that episode quite a bit. I can't help but prefer cartoon over comics. Filmation Garn is a monstarrr...
