    Filmation's RAVEN for MOTUC

    Hello Everyone,

    I was watching an old Filmation episode of Masters of the Universe and saw this obscure minion of Skeletor, called RAVEN in the episode, "The Energy Beast". So, I started thinking...he'd make another fun MOTUC henchmen to add along Icer, Fang Man, and Strong Arm.

    In the episode, he is just a raven with a humanoid head. But, I envision him being a full humanoid that can transform into the raven to spy on the heroic warriors for Skeletor.

    His accessories would include:

    • 2 snap-on tekko kagi
    • 1 bird stand
    • Raven transformed
    • the Energy Beast (as seen in the episode)

    Let's show some support for this lost minion of Skeletor!

    Looks cool enough to make a figure of, but considering I've heard zero talk about him on these forums, I doubt he's popular enough to be made...might be another Nepthu fiasco in the making! Looks like he wouldn't be too difficult to customize though.
    Here's how to end the line:
    2015 200x Mini-Sub: Evilseed, Calix, Prahvus, Horde Wraith, Miro, Veena, Hawke

    2016 line: LordMasque, Vultak, Granita, Despara, Dylamug, Hunga, General Sunder,Tuskador, Crita, Lodar, Quakke, Darius

    Quarterly items: Sagitar, Stridor, Night Stalker

    I like your concept of him. If he's like that with those accessories then I'm in!

    I like it, very good work with the concept!

    I can imagine Raven side by side with Batros!

    That's actually pretty swell! I'd buy.
    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

    Thank you, everyone! I'm glad you like it. I think he'd make a great figure, personally. Especially as a Traveling Exclusive or Sub Exclusive figure.

    There's no way I support this when there are still hundreds of characters to be made. Maybe in 2020 :P

    He's one of those hundreds, Durendal. Raven is a legitimate character from Filmation, just like Slavemaster and Dark Dream. I just gave him a humanoid figure to go with his Raven form; as seen in the cartoon series.

    There really aren't hundreds of characters left though. It would be an awesome extra wuth Filmation roots. It's a creative interpretation of a Filmation character
    A Want List of Sorts: Peekablue, Saurod, Veena, Calix, Evilseed, 200X Head Pack, Mara, Point Dread & The Talon Fighter... and all the other POP & NA characters.

    I beg to differ - I'm pretty sure if you go through the list of all the unproduced characters in all MOTU related media over the decades that you'd get to several hundred...

    While that may be true, he did not appear in humanoid form, so he's essentially a custom as pictured above, cool though he may be.

    I think you are confusing "custom" with "concept". This was a concept for how Raven could be part of the MOTUC. Every character, including those you want that haven't been made yet, go through a concept process. It's how designs are determined before starting the process of creating a prototype.

    The point of my concept was to show how we could potentially get another cool figure, from yet another Filmation character, but in a fun and new way that also included the original design.

    He looks cool - kinda creepy. I wouldn't object if he ever showed up in MOTUC. He'd look cool next to Batros.

    it'll never happen. But tops setup sir!

    I would buy it. Too much to ask for a new stand, just a regular black one would be cool.

    Wow! That's a really cool design. I would definitely buy that! The accessories alone would be super cool in themselves.

    Yup, I'd buy him over quite a few of the figures currently sitting on people's shelves.
