    Rank Mantenna's Importance

    Next up is Mantenna!



    This is a multiple choice poll with 2 categories to vote in. The first category is whether or not you would buy a variant of this character. The second category is the overall importance you feel this character brings to the franchise.

    Variant worthy?

    Variant Worthy: This is a character that you believe is variant worthy. You're willing to purchase different variants of this character even if your favorite version is the first one released. Matty can certainly put them in MOTUC's quarterly variant slot for you.

    Not Variant Worthy: You don't feel this character needs any variants whatsoever. You only hope that when they make this character that they get them right the first time around. You do not want to be taken for the ass.

    Importance

    A-List: Integral to the story and the franchise. MOTU isn't MOTU without them. This is a core character that is extremely important to you. If Mattel doesn't make them, someone will have some serious explaining to do!

    B-List: They might not be integral to the story in your eyes but this is an excellent supportive character that helps to round out the story, franchise and your collection.

    C-List: You feel this is a good guest star type of character. You don't expect to see them hanging around the supportive crew all the time but you still want to see them show up to lend a helping hand now and then.

    D-List: Fills the role of background character and cameo maker for you. You acknowledge their existence but in a very limited way. This is an "okay" character.

    Z-List: You'd rather forget about this character entirely. Should they never be mentioned again in MOTU-lore, you would be quite happy. This character would kill teh lien for you.

    Most Wanted: Slave Girl, Eldor, Spinnerella, Mermista, Peekablue, Crita, Lizorr, Tyrantisaurus Rex, Battle Ram, Great Black Wizard.
    Most Wanted for Filmation Sub: Madame Razz with Broom, Lord Masque, Ileena, Granita, General Sunder.

    No Slave Girl? Watch us hurl!

    A barbaric world without slave girls? That's truly barbaric!

    Man I love that original toy! Pure nostalgia driven I admit, but so awesome and creepy. I voted variant worthy because he has so many different looks (classic toy, Filmation, 200x, Staction) and B-List.

    I think Mantenna has a few varied looks between his Vintage figure, Filmation model and Staction, so he could be variant worthy. I guess it all depends on what Mattel and the 4H decide to do. If we get the Staction/Filmation version (The Staction seems to be a more graphic version of the Filmation model, so Mattel could kill two birds with one stone), then Vintage fans might want the original toyline look for Mantenna. But if Mattel makes the Vintage toy, then Filmation and 200X fans would want the staction/Filmation combo as a variant.

    A-list but not variant worthy.

    A-list but definitely not variant worthy. I kind of wonder if his bio states that he's still going to be Hordak's punching bag. Wouldn't be surprised if there's still the trap door gag.

    If Mattel makes the wrong Mantenna, then we'll be asking for a Mantenna variant.

    B-List and Variant Worthy. Only because the vintage toy didn't actually look like what they were trying to make it look like, while the 200X version had all the exact same details, but with a much better execution. Honestly, I would rather just have an articulated 200X version, but I hope they at least incorporate some 200X design elements in the Classics version. And while I would never buy a MANTENNA in the vintage style, I understand that some people would.

    No varient, and B list. He was never developed enough to give a reason for having one.

    Yes you do, you've just used a double negative!

    A list hordesman. My favourite Hordesman after Modulok. No variant neccessary (that being said before I see the MOTUC version But I trust them)

    IN as much as the entire MOTU goes, perhaps only B list.

    Dragstor & Mantenna are the only 2 Horde I had as a kid, and while I like Dragstor much more, they both are wants of mine for Classics....That being said, I prefer the Vintage look, but some extras included, like separate legs for one, which I do hope we'd get, and swappable heads.

    I kind of don't see a variant for him, depending on which road the 4H take, and being what Classics is, it will most likely be the vintage road.

    But regardless, I still have the Vintage figure, and he is one of my last few wanted / needed figures to have a finished childhood collection, even though I chose to omit a few from my modern collection.
    Recent....Blade
    Coming....Scorpia & Battle Lion
    Wanted....Entrapa, Double Trouble, Light Hope, (A real) Filmation Hordak & Clawful
    Considering....
    Needed....Dragstor

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

    I went with A-List.

    He's my favorite Hordesmen and was one of my favorite toys as a kid!!

    I hope the MOTUC version uses the vintage figure design and gives him four separate legs.

    I hope Mantenna looks like the staction or at least a Classicized version of the staction..

    Probably my most-wanted figure now (or close, at least!). B-List, no variants.
    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 say if he's important enough to put into the opening of every single She-Ra episode, he's A-List by far (no variant)

    Definitely A-list, but not variant worthy. Was one of my faves as a kid. The 4H will knock it out of the park.
