    June is Filmation month on TGR!

    Hi Everyone, June is Filmation month on TGR and we will be discussing the various seasons of the Filmation cartoon on Council of the First Ones Podcast. We will further be discussing Filmation characters on the TGR Facebook page. Join the discussion and tell us which Filmation characters you would like to see in the Masters of the Universe Classics line!

    - - - Updated - - -

    I will be posting some of my favourite Filmation characters over the next few weeks. I will specifically focus on those lesser known characters, which over the years have become much-loved by MOTU fans.

    First up is Zilora, the strong-willed leader of the Snake Clan from Eternia’s ancient past.

    Zilora appeared in The Time Corridor, Episode 8 from Season 1. She is portrayed as a capable warrior woman, who is not threatened by Skeletor, whom she refers to as the Ghost Face. Zilora was voiced by Linda Gary and does not appear in any future episodes. She has a strong resemblance to Teela, especially when compared to The Goddess version of Teela dressed in her snake armor.

    Would you like to see Zilora in the Masters of the Universe Classics line?

    Icer is Skeletor’s evil warrior who resides in the Arctic-like northern region of Eternia.

    Icer appeared in ‘The Ice Age Cometh’ Episode 76 from Season 2. He has an Eskimo-like appearance with an ice blue body which appears to be made of solid ice. His abilities include being able to freeze living objects by simply touching them and melting his body into water to travel under or though small spaces. He can further camouflage himself into icy surroundings and has power over ice and snow. Icer is voiced by John Erwin and does not appear in any other episodes.

    Icer has never officially been available in figure form, would you like to see Icer in the Masters of the Universe Classics line?

    I'd happily buy both Zilora and Icer. I'd be shocked if we didn't get Icer, he is a highly requested Filmation characters.

    as far as Filmation Goes, I want Blackstar, Overlord, and to a (greatly) lesser extent Klone and Mara (and possibly Warlock).

    But as far as Filmation Masters, Sea Hawk (now that we got Shadow Weaver) and Strong Arm. Of course Shokoti, but really I always wanted Strong Arm as a villain toy more than anyone with a small possibility of ICer, as Icer was so obviously already basically a toy by design.

    This is the first episode I've listened to. Some responses:
    "To Save Skeletor" was a great episode, but I could never stand how incredibly ugly the demon was! I remember him having a little mustache that made it even worse lol.
    My favorite season 2 episode by far is "Not so Blind", in which He-man takes a blind Eternian boy on a journey to behold the singing crystals. Such a great story with a powerful message about acceptance and misconception.
    "The Problem with Power" is another great choice for favorite episode.
    If MOTU was to be extended into a third season, I would definitely have loved to see King Hiss and his Snakemen introducted, as well as some love given to Ninjor, Mosquitor, Dragstor, and other figures with backgrounds that are still in dire need of fleshing out. Preternia would be another must for the third season to explore.

    Episode 24 is here! Filmation month ends with the She-Ra season 2 discussion. In this episode, we also discuss about the bios of Spikor and Sir Laser-Lot.

    Here are some thoughts regarding the bios of Spikor and Laser-Lot.

    Spikor:
    - It does make sense for him to have had a different name than Spikor on basis of his origin in the bio. If he had been spikey all his life of course "Spikor" could have worked from the beginning. Admitted, "Kleffton" isn't the best name for a character to have, but since he is called Spikor NOW - who cares?

    - I personally like the "fused with the armour" bit, as it nicely explains the figure's features.
    First off, his skin and spikey parts have different colours. And since he had this collar and those metal looking parts embedded in his chest I never saw that spikey torso as his skin, but as an armour he's wearing. The only thing that would contradict this is his blue and spikey head. But with that new bio it works. He was "simply" fused with spikey armour (including a helmet).

    - By the way I don't think Kleffton was supposed to be a human to begin with - being fused with that armor sure wouldn't change his features THAT much while changing his skin colour to purple.



    Laser-Lot:
    - It wouldn't change the past if he was taken to the future by a time agent (btw - the bio never states it was Spector), if he was about to/ supposed to die (for example being crushed by a boulder). In that case he wouldn't have changed anything back then anymore. Of course he could change things in the future though. On the other hand Laser-lot may not be THAT fixed in time - or as "the Doctor" would say: "Wibbly wobbly timey wimey stuff..."

    But then again: Why does anyone care about a period of time we basically know NOTHING about?

    - Why would Laser-Lot know anything about Lasers? First off they HAD Lasers in Preternia. Secondly, he's called Laser-lot...

    - If Laser-Lot is as good with technology as they say, he might be quick in adapting to new technology and working with it. A good understanding of how things work is a very good qualification to work with it.

    - Why did they take LL to the future in the first place?
    It sure wasn't like this:

    King He-Man: "What Clamp Champ's dead too?! Oh gee I guess we need a new Man-at-Arms...again."
    J. Spector: "I know just the guy!"

    They sure didn't take him to the future in order to MAKE him the new MAA (the bio doesn't state that), but because of his deeds and power. So when he was taken to the future they might have realized his potential as he might have been working with new technology with basicaly no problems at all. He even might have worked together with Clamp Champ, who could have explained him anything new. So in the end they might have decided to make him the new MAA. It works for me.

    On Spikor:
    The name is the biggest turn-off for many. I think it's more of having yet, another merger between a "Human" and a "non-human" that bothers me... We've had a certain set of elements repeating themselves... "King Hsss ate my brother!" "Mystic mergers!" "Clones" etc.


    On SLL:

    But we ALL Know it's Spector... He's the only Time Agent so far and possibly the only one we'll get... (Also I can't rant about Spector if it ain't Spector! )
    The lack of Laser-Lot's corpse does change a lot of stuff... His Magic Armor goes missing for 5000+ years. If someone was meant to use it in the past secretly then now he or she can't do it!

    Sure his name is Laser Lot, but his powers are not really Laser-like... It's some Dragon-Magic due to his gem.

    Still, bringing Duncan would have been a better choice...
    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.

    Great Christmas-story Joni!
    Wish you guys could have dug more into the history of MOTUC line. Discussing the prototype He-Man, sellout times, first time a figure got late (Mer-Man) that made Adora go into next year. All that good stuff.


    Hey where were Joe and Dewald?

    Joe was customizing stuff and Dewald had some issues with the weather... a storm was hitting SA and stuff...
    Sell-out times... "Grrrrr!!" That's what I think about discussing them. Don't want to do a full on rant about that... (too many expletives to be deleted by Arthur)
