    Good work man! Fun to see an Eternian popularity contest and even more suprised that Skeletor is beating He-Man!

    Do the totals for Beastman and Grizzlor include the alternate, goofy cardback images of them from the back of the Mollar/Skeletor box set?

    This is true, but Battle Armor He-Man is beating Battle Armor Skeletor 11 to 3. And BA He-Man was out for quite a while before BA Skeletor was, BA He-Man was probably being used for a while in place of regular He-Man while regular Skeletor was the only version available. In fact, if we total up the counts of all of the variants of these characters (including Keldor and Prince Adam, and assuming tht the counts in the original post in this thread are correct as of right now), this is how it works out...

    (Regular) He-man -30
    BA He-Man - 11
    Preternia Disguise He-Man -3
    Prince Adam - 3
    Thunder Punch He-Man -1
    ____________________________
    Total: 48


    (Regular) Skeletor-36
    Keldor - 4
    Battle Armor Skeletor - 3
    ____________________________
    Total:43

    For Skeletor, if you want to count Demo-Man (which IMO is a gray area... I consider Keldor to be the equivelant for Skeletor that Adam is for He-man, but Demo-Man was "merged" with Keldor to create Skeletor.. plus he comes with the Acala Skeletor head), that would add one more appearance for a total of 44.

    So, either way, it is pretty close, but with He-Man still coming out ahead.


    I'm not counting the likes of Wun-Dar or Faker as He-Man variants because even though they reuse much of the same mold, particularly his head, they are technically different characters.
    So, He-Man comes out ahead overall, though it's still pretty close.

    Not that I'm complaining because he's one of my favorites in this line, (just picked him up recently at Power-Con) but it's surprising to me how much Scareglow is on the backs of these.

    Great thread, Zargon!

    I think these statistics give an indication of the relative connectivity of the figures which have already been released.

    Hence, as most characters released so far are from MOTU, He-Man and Skeletor, the leaders of the two opposing MOTU factions are leading.

    Of course, if more POP figures are released She-Ra and Hordak should shoot up the results list!

    And when we have nearly all of the MOTUC figures released we will have a relative (and unofficial) indication of the importance of individual figures to the MOTUC Universe.

    Keep up the good work Zargon!

    Weird that on his card, Spirit Hordak's name appears in RED and not the standard villain name-color of BLUE...
    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 noticed that. To my recollection I think Randor appears in blue at some point as well. Weird.

    Thanks for this thread Zargon, I am morbidly fascinated with things like this.

    Actually the useless stuff to me involves real names aside from Adam Teela 'Na, Duncan & Adora....and anything involving a Purple X-Man guy and Sir Superman....also any core characters dying off....MAA, Sorceress...etc from anything except old age.

    So basically almost everything new to the Classics canon....
    Recent.... Arrow, Tung Lashor & Bow
    Coming.... Mermista
    Wanted.... NA She-Ra, Double Mischief, Jitsu....
    Considering....
    Needed.... Dragstor

    Oh man, did I forget to use these [sarcasm][/sarcasm] again? Sorry....

    Check here for my My collection page, MOTU and more!

    I wish I knew what goes in to who gets put on the cardbacks - is there an official meeting? do people push for different characters? stuff like this fascinates me. I loved looking at them as a kid but mostly to see what new figures were coming out.

    I'm sure Toyguru said (on the Roast Gooble Dinner podcast) that he decides who should be on the cardbacks. He also said that occasionally the wrong characters are used, instead of the ones he picked.

    Looks like She-Ra's connections have yet to be recognised in card mentions.

    She has the same number as less influential characters on Etheria:

    10 - Bow / Catra / She-Ra

    And significantly less than her main adversary and boss foe:

    33 - Hordak

    Did Lt. Spector from the Sky High box count as Mighty Spector or as Palace Guards?

    I hope that someone did that as a practical joke on TG, so he can get a bunch more internet hate about it and those SIX BIG CARDBACKS that HE PERSONALLY WITH THE HAMMER OF THOR has WEDGED himself onto THAT EVIL MEGALOMANIACAL RAPSCALLION. Or he did it as a joke on those that feel that way. Either way, I love that guy.
