Everybody's favourite annoying little critter lands with a bump at number 28. This fills me with nostalgic joy - because it shows that even one of the most 'hated' characters in the mythos has a strong fan base and is likely to sell just as well as someone like Castle Greyskullman. Not much more to say really, other than I hope Loo-Kee along with other 'little guys' gets some appreciation in the line soon. It's been nearly two years since Orko for Heaven's sake. He needs Kowl, Imp and other Trollans to play with.

The winner of this year's fan choice slot was Geldor and we know he'll be joining shelves of subscribers in November 2013. Can't believe we'll have to wait THAT long and we're talking about it now. Crikey. Personally, I'm more interested in what's to come before him. I always felt he had a fairly plain design and will probably make good use of Tri-Klops' armour. He may of course give Mattel a cheaper figure to make, allowing them to focus some cash on those sculpts requiring more new parts. I also hope Mattel do more fan choice votes, but include some of the less obscure characters to make the race a bit more exciting.
#28= - Lord Dactys (57/100 votes)
Last time: #36 (51/100 votes)
He's been on the 'rumoured' list for ages, so I wonder if he'll appear some time soon. I think fans would have preferred that he prop up 2012 instead of Dekker, but 2012 was ordered before the subscription debacle that almost saw MOTUC's downfall. I imagine he'll look pretty swell when they get to him - probably reusing Drago-Man's wings and parts from the insectoid/beast figures like Buzz-Off and Clawful. I also hope they allude to Batros in his bio - he referred to a wayward son in the Underworld episode and MOTUC provides the perfect opportunity to tie them together, IMO.
#28= - Veena (57/100 votes)
Last time: #31 (56/100 votes)
It's hard to believe that the line started waaaaaaaay back in 2008 with a convention exclusive of King Grayskull. This was a good sign, as the line's been inclusive (although could have done more for some factions, IMO). There's surely room for Grayskull's widow before the line waves us farewell - with all the Royal Family out of the way, Veena seems like something special (and we haven't had any POG figures lately, although I imagine Eldor is on the way). I also hope she's in her original MYP colours and not the Sorceress-esque colours from the second minicomic.
Most-wanted MOTUC: Granita - Hunga the Harpy - Spinnerella - Melaktha - Vultak - Dylamug - Crita - Mermista Sprag, Sprocker and Spritina
Loo-Kee has gone from someone I hated back in the day, to a figure I acquired several years back that I've come to appreciate as a cool '80s toy, to a figure in MOTUC that I feel is quite long overdue. I've felt for some time that a pack of little guys would be the perfect counterbalance to all of these very large items the line has been flooded with over the years (Granamyr, Swift Wind, Wind Raider, the giants... all of these things are ginormous and eat up so much action figure shelfspace!). We only have Orko, Cringer, Tri-Klops' doomseeker, and way too many birds. We need the likes of Madame Razz, Imp, Loo-Kee, Old Man Marzo, Dree-Elle, Twiggets, Gwildor, etc. to help balance the line out size-wise. I don't think Loo-Kee should be packed in with a normal 6" figure the way Orko and Cringer were. I think in order to give him proper articulation and paint apps, he should come on his own blister card, but give him a handful of accessories (could be things like Etherian artifacts, or items like Bubble Power She-Ra's sword done in white for Netossa, a silver PoP shield for She-Ra, a repainted weapon in Frosta colors... that sort of thing). Or if they wanted to go all out, pack a nicely sculpted 6" Whispering Woods tree with Loo-Kee. Something you can "hide" him in. Heck, do something cool like that, and I'd buy a few just to get more of the tree prop and sell of the spare Loo-Kees!
Geldor didn't actually get my fan vote. Mine went to Cloak & Dagger Evil-Lyn. But had she not been on the list, my vote would definitely have gone to Geldor. If they reuse Tri-Klops' armor that's alright, but would prefer something newly sculpted- as otherwise he IS just all normal male MOTUC parts. If they are going to reuse Trike's chest harness, they should at least give him several accessories. And one of those should definitely be the Secret Liquid Of Life vial. I have no doubt that he's going to look great though. I imagine he's going to have a really great headsculpt.
While Prahvus is my #1 most-wanted MYP character at this point, Lord Dactys is pretty close behind. I wanted a figure of this guy in the 2002 toyline but was denied. I don't know about retconning Batros to be his wayward son, but I really like the idea of Batros being a nemesis of these actual batpeople... sort of like how I think Catra would be after the powers/treasures of cat folk like Carnivus or Kittrina, I could see Batros as someone who's mostly human but desires the domain, wealth, powers, etc. of Dactys' species. Not to mention coveting all of Lord Dactys' books...
Veena. I often forget about her. Sure, she'd be a cool figure to get- but I don't know that I'd welcome both a Veena and a 2002-styled Sorceress in MOTUC. Maybe if they made her a 2-in-1 figure like Queen/Captain Marlena Glenn?
Now we are talking, some great characters in there..... with the exception of Loo-Kee.
I think we may well see Veena in the 2013 sub as well as either Dactys or Evil Seed. I would be pleased to have all 3.
Geldor got my vote in the fan's choice and is a figure I always wanted to see made as a kid. So I am very excited for him.
Neutral Forest Spirit
Aww Dylamug barely missed the top 30
Crita & Dactys are in my top 20 so good news there.
Geldor is a must own, only reason he's not in my sig, is I know he's coming. He had my vote with 0 hesitation. That is the comic I most remember. Yeah he's a blah Mr. T reject, but nostalgia trumps that for me.
Loo-Kee yup I so want him. I would have a blast hiding him in the collection. I think he's a fun little dude. I always look for him in the episodes. Only thing I feel is a must for the figure is being able to wave. Not an action feature, but like Mer-Man & Slushy. Oh you could not have picked a better screen grab of him.
NO DYLAMUG? WE DIAL A MOB!
The Space Mutants are missing something CRITAcal!
Chocolate and Vanilla swiiiirl. Swur-Urrl. -Crazy Eyes
As for the previus step, Fang-Man is one of the few figures next year I'll be trying to get. Flutterina as the vintage doll has a decent action feature, but I don't need too many winged characters to eat up shelf space.
"She-Ra, Princess of Power was no more. That had been the price of freedom."
Batros, in my universe is a Horde member; and I'm afraid that straight Filmation interpretations will leave Batros and Vultak as looking too much alike. Another I would like to see him retconned as a Spelean.
Figures needed before I open up my MIB collection...by Factions:
Heroic/Evil Warriors: Rio Blast, Ninjor,
Evil Horde: Entrapta, Dragstor, and ANY other Horde member!
Snake Men: Tung Lashor, Sssqueeze, Blast-Attak
Geldor and Dactys will make cool figures! I also believe that some kind of connection between Dactys and Batros in the bios would be great!
As for Crita, I don't like her that much... I see her as nothing more than a substitute for Evil-Lyn. There are so many ladies that I'd like to see before her in MOTUC: Glimmer, Angella, Scorpia, Granita, Madame Razz, Castaspella or Entrapta are much more needed than Crita (in my humble opinion)...
20 Most needed characters before MOTUC ends...
Heroic: Lizard Man / King Miro / Hawke / Dakon
POP: Angella / King Micah / General Sunder/ Twiggets 3 pack
Horde: Vultak / Hunga / Prahvus
SnakeMen: Tung Lashor / Sssqueeze
Rock People: Granita
NA: Darius / Sebrian
I look forward to Geldor and Veena. Dactys and Loo-Kee I'd be fine without.
Ask not for whom MOTUC is made, it's made for thee.
If you have to disclaimer your like, then you don't really like it.
Zeelhr will be a character I'm going to need to make myself.

Geldor. I'm real glad he is going to be made as a figure. I just love those solo villains. And I do like that he is a human. We only have Marzo & Jitsu so far for human bad guys. So he is very welcome among my collection. I like to envision him as an enemy of Randor or Miro than He-Man.
Lord Dactys. the guy is awesome. what is interesting about him is he looks like he should belong with the evil warriors, but he is one of the good guys. I like that. I'm confident we are going to get him before the line ends. curious what kind of legs & feet he will get. if they give him unique legs/feet could they work for other characters like Hunga the Harpy?
Veena. A must have character & so is Eldor. Eldor 2013!!
I seriously hope she is keeping her 200x colors not the Sorceress colors. It's important to tell them apart as different characters. that mini comic has me worried about her colors being changed. don't screw this up matty.
Lookee would be awesome. I was never able to find one as a kid and always wanted him. I finally tracked a moc a few years ago really cheap. Would like I see an updated version.

#27= - Gwildor (58/100 votes)
Last time: #27 (61/100 votes)
It's been almost two years since we all got the first Cosmic Key accessory in MOTUC - with Preternia Disguise He-Man - and still no sign of Gwildor. One thing we do know is that the character dies - whether that's of old age or through battle isn't yet known, but we can presume that his bio will tell all when the character is released. How essential is he to your collection? He's fairly low down on this countdown (and always has been, in fairness). Would you want him simply because he's a vintage MOTU character over someone like Batros? Or Glimmer? Or Flogg? They're all still to come, but only time will tell if this 100% newly-tooled character will grace us with his presence in The A-List Years.
#27= - Perfuma (58/100 votes)
Last time: #34 (53/100 votes)
It's interesting then that a character like Perfuma would land at the same spot as Gwildor, yet he - as a vintage MOTU character - is likely to get an automatic free pass to the line, while she's practically guaranteed to be waiting on the 'naughty list'. It's no surprise that I'd prefer Perfuma to Gwildor - and many others, to be honest - and if they do ever get to unleash her flowery frilliness on the general public, I hope they amp up the pink. She was a girly character, so let's celebrate that. As a flower lady, she is a girly-girl, but she still has Evilseed-style powers. Just so happens she fights on the side of good. Perfuma's a great example of the variety and diversity seen in the MOTUniverse - makes it a far richer place to me than if everyone was a thuggish barbarian.
Gwildor. of core I would want him just for the nostalgia. Although I didn't like him much as a kid. I just want a complete collection. I feel its a little unfair that Gwildor is more likely to get a pass over Master Sabrian. Gwildor never had much of a role. what I mean is hes like a guest character.
Perfuma. I want her! A top list-er for me. I would like her real soon. Castaspella, Peekablue, Angella, Perfuma, Glimmer are my favorite gals from POP.
I like Gwildor (as performed by Billy Barty, a figure from many of my childhood favorite movies) and I would like to see him released.
Perfuma has a nature theme going on and that works in her favor for me. I think she'd make a good release and I'd especially like for her flower sprouting back pack to be reimagined as a stylistically flowered mortar/cannon/bazooka.
Ask not for whom MOTUC is made, it's made for thee.
If you have to disclaimer your like, then you don't really like it.
4H, if/when you get around to doing Perfuma, PLEASE stay away from the Filmation Lily Allen version entirely.
#28 - Would love to see Loo-Kee come along, maybe packed in with Madame Razz or someone else. Dactys would be a nice addition as well. Pass on the others.
#28 - Perfuma! I need her in my life! I would like to see the choker and earrings from the style guide on her, but to me she must have the double rose belt from the toy above everything else. Gwildor would also be a fine addition to the ranks, though I'm not that into the character.

Gwildor and Perfuma. A couple of years back, these two would have been at the bottom of the barrel in terms of possible classic MOTU and PoP figures that could get an update in the new line. Now I can appreciate what they would add to each faction, and I feel the time is now to bring these two into the fold. Gwildor and his invention of the cosmic key seem to play a pivotal role in the MOTUC storyline, so he's a no-brainer. I could see them coming up with parts that could be shared between him, Loo-Kee, and an Old Man Marzo variant. The movie cosmic key is nice to have, but I do like that vintage toy design and so would like to see that as an accessory for him. But I would also like to see some of those items strapped to his chest done as removable bits that he could hold in his hands too.
I know they keep doing the Filmation versions of the PoP gals, and I doubt they are going to veer off the path, but boy- with Perfuma they would be wasting such an opportunity to make her actually cool and useful if they stuck with styleguide/cartoon stylings for her. Look at the classic toy. There's potential there to make her look like a badass. She has a backpack that doubles as a bazooka... and sure- it shoots a giant flower petal, but her powers could be similar to that of Poison Ivy, Stinkor, Moss Man, and/or Evilseed. She could be so cool! But man, if they stick with her Filmation incarnation, not only is it going to be a weak-sauce action figure, she's also going to be the laughing stock of modern PoP.
Mantenna or Two-Bad for me
Yikes. Gwildor was always one of the lamest characters ever, and that hasn't changed. I would not be upset whatsoever if they never get around to him. And Perfuma is probably the absolute worst of the POP gals. She's just so...girly and silly. The 4H really need to give her some kind of edge in order to make her appealing.
Geldor & Lord Dactys for me...
Looking forward to getting Gwildor & Perfuma.
I couldn't care less about Geldor, Veena, Loo-Kee, or Lord Dactys.
