    -----------------------------------------

    The 2016 MOTUC fan poll playoffs are here! This is Round 1, Week 2 which consists of four polls. Please be sure to vote in all four polls!
    Poll 5
    Poll 6
    Poll 7
    Poll 8

    Here is the playoff poll chart to show how the playoff schedule will run.

    Here are the visual character guides for each poll:
    Visuals for poll 5
    Visuals for poll 6
    Visuals for poll 7
    Visuals for poll 8

    The polls are sorting polls. Each person will click, drag, and rank the characters in order from most favorite at the top down to least favorite at the bottom. All polls load the character list in random order each time for each person to minimize any effects of any incomplete sorting... although we hope each person will sort the entire list in each poll!

    Scott has let us know that Mattel will be watching the results of this unofficial fan poll playoff!

    A complete list of characters in these playoffs is located in this thread.

    Known characters that were not included:
    • 1987 movie characters. Aside from vintage toy versions of Saurod, Blade and Gwildor, Mattel currently does not have the rights to these characters and we've been asked to leave them off this poll.
    • Vintage MOTU figure variants. Scott Neitlich has confirmed they plan to do all the vintage MOTU figure variants if we get through 2015.
    • Unseen Create-A-Character entries. While Mattel has rights to any character submitted to their CAC contest, the only CAC characters in this poll are runner-ups since they are the only ones seen by the public. Please don't suggest or post unseen CAC entries.

    Reference list of abbreviations and terms:
    CAC = Create-A-Character, referring to the 80s contest or the recent 2012 contest
    Concept = development art for unreleased or reworked characters
    200x = 2002 He-man relaunch of toys and cartoon
    Filmation = the vintage He-Man and/or She-Ra cartoons
    Golden Books = vintage 80s book series
    Jetlag = New Adventures of He-Man cartoon series
    Ladybird Books = vintage 80s book series
    MOTU = Masters of the Universe (usually related to vintage 80s)
    MOTUC = Masters of the Universe Classics
    MVCreations = 2002 relaunch related comic books
    NA = New Adventures of He-Man, usually the toys or printed media
    NEW 52 DC = the current run of MOTU comics at DC Comics
    Newspaper Strip = vintage 80s He-Man comic strip that ran in various US newspapers
    POG = Powers of Grayskull (unreleased Preternia/dinosaur He-Man brand from the late 80s)
    POP = She-Ra: Princess of Power
    SOH = Son of He-Man

    There are also a number of additional media outlets that were a source for unique characters, including comics and books released in Brazil, Germany, the UK (United Kingdom) as well as a couple other book publishers in the United States.

    This second week ends Sunday, March 23rd at 11:00pm EDT (GMT -4).
    Please spread the word. And, most importantly, have fun!

    You are killing me with Poll 6.

    I counted 15 that I really want and another 3 that I think would be really cool to see what the 4H could do with them.

    And Poll 7 isn't much better.

    Poll 7 was nearly impossible for me! There was a handful I could easily sink to the bottom, but the rest...I want them all. REALLY difficult to prioritize them!

    Funny, poll 5 I had the opposite situation. Only interested in a few and had to upvote some others just to fill the space. Ended up just judging based on looks for some of those.

    Btw...who is this Satma guy from the German audioplays? That rendering of him looks amazing.

    Edit: I see he is the ruler of hyperspace in the German audioplays. Wish there was an English transcription somewhere. I'm intrigued.

    Other than Darius, General Sundar and a few others, the vast majority of characters in these votes hold no interest to me at all! Adora in a night gown!!?

    My Top 10 from R1P5. This one wasn't too hard. There weren't a lot I just had to have, though there are some real gems in there. Shield Strike He-man was one of my favorite variants from 200X. I feel like it doesn't get enough love:

    Light Spinner (pre-Shadow Weaver Filmation)
    Hercule (vintage MOTU Ram Man concept)
    King Pythos (Filmation)
    Shield Strike He-Man (200x toy)
    Tyroar (vintage MOTU concept)
    Titan (German MOTUC comic)
    Melog (Filmation)
    Illeena (Filmation)
    King Hiss ("Serpentor" helmet concept)
    Zandini (UK MOTU comic)

    For me the best ones are concepts. I'd love to have Hercule fighting that tarantula.

    I'm also really intrigued by some of these. I'd never heard of this Hercule guy, but he instantly went into my top 5. Could easily be Ram Man's Preternian ancestor. A lot of unexplored goodness from the past in these polls!

    Poll 7 seemed a bit harsh. Many NA heavy hitters in there. Including Darius, Master Sebrian and Disks of Doom Skeletor in one poll seems unfair. Especially as NA did very well in Week One.

    It is rough, and I say that as a huge NA fan. But I put the list through it's randomization myself. The randomization uses white noise versus an algorithm, too, which is supposed to be more effective and random. And that's how the chips fell.

    Wishing we could have one single poll with every character listed instead of dividing them up into groups, but I can see how that would present its own challenges as well.
    Best of luck to everyone voting!

    Some of these polls were difficult for me because there was so little stuff I really wanted. A lot of crap I'd hate to see slots get wasted on ended up in my top ten
    Awesome sticker included!

    I have to admit that this line up had more "Duds" for me than the first round.

    Really curious to see how this falls out. I am sad to assume that the variants of more popular characters are going to be higher this time around. Much like Mattel I am more into new characters rather than variants with a few specific exceptions.

    Still each poll had what I felt was obvious as the best choice. We'll see.

    What's his story? Is he a separate character from Lizard Man? I wish there was info with some of these. I don't base my votes on looks alone.
    Yes, he's a separate character from the other Lizard Man. He was just a one off, couple second appearance character, but ever since I was a kid, I liked him, prob'ly 'cause he reminded me of the other Lizard Man, but now I like him more, more than likely because he'd never get made, unless he did well in the polls.

    Cool, thanks! I know him from seeing your avatar often, lol. I honestly don't recall his appearance in Filmation. I'm sure I would if I rewatched the episode.

    Was super excited to see Ceratus, Hawke, Delora, Great Black Wizard and Stingrad in the polls this week. Awesome characters!!!! Even put Bubblor toward the top of the list and most exciting to see PRAHVUS on there.
