    New Characters created due to MOTUC

    I have been watching this list grow as this line has expanded, and I am surprised as to how many have popped up. Heres the list I have so far.
    Gladiator
    Beast Lord

    Bandwidth
    Red Shadow



    http://forums.mattycollector.com/eve...7/m/2841008167
    June 21st over at the Matty forums in response to a question posted by vertigoink
    "Gladiator, Bandwidth, Red Shadow and Beast Lord were new characters introduced as part of Grayskull's group of Preternia warriors along with Spector and Sir Laser Lot. Terry's character appears in issue 3.

    I've noted a few times that management wanted to use the 30th program to move the brand forward and introduce new worlds and characters. The mini comics are part of this."

    Red Beast


    Spinwhiz
    Telkan 2 asks: Can you tell us more about the Horde robot (who looks suspiciously like one of Hordak's transformed bodies from the Filmation series) that is fighting alongside the heroic factions in the third Ultimate Battleground comic?

    Matty: Sure. His name is Spin Whiz and he is a Horde hunter robot that was captured and reprogrammed by the Masters.

    That's The Great Black Wizard

    4. facet: Who is this Horde Character from the new third mini comic?
    Snarrrlll,

    3/15/13 That is supposed to be Keldor and Evil-Lyn's son with the mohawk correct? I'm assuming his name is Skeleteen based on the box art vote. I think he needs a figure asap because he is the Eternian version of a Dreadnok! I hope that's a mask and not his actual face though. Overall the comic was amazing compared to the previous issues.
    TG "It's a Skull mask. Like in Karate Kid. (Look close you will see the string). Incidentally, that design (and name) came from the vintage He-Ro SOHM bible. Too cool not to use!"
    And Now we have Skeleteen

    4. facet: I have racked my brains over these three characters from the list provided by Mattel for the Castle Grayskull box art but could not find them anywhere. Who are these characters: Fang-or, Golden rod, Snow thief?

    They are all on page 2-3 of the third 2012 mini comic. Fang-or is behind Sqqueeze, Golden Rod is in front of Gygor and Snow Thief is behind Mosquitor.
    Fang-or

    Snowthief, Golden Rod, Strettch Nek and Vypor


    5. facet: Scott, will you please tell us all of the new characters on pages 2 and 3 of the third new mini comic? By this I mean any character that was created by you and your staff, that didn't have an action figure or previously existing media associated with it. Then, also show us exactly where they are in that 2 page spread by either circling them in a JPG and attaching their name or something similar. Thanks!

    He-Man.org were kind enough to also send over a visual to assist with this question. Based on this visual, the character labeled "Golden Rod" are generic members of the Viper Squadron, the character labeled "Snow Thief" is actually Goldenrod (Snarrrlll the Snow Thief is above Mosquitor). The two characters behind BlastAttak are Strettch Nek and Vypor.

    2. Niki: The original two vintage Comet Warriors who were chosen to be the SDCC 2013 MOTUC exclusive have opened up another new fraction with in MOTUC. In the mini-comic "Escape From The Slime Pit" two others were featured. A yellow/orange/pink female and a green/silver/blue male. What are their names?

    Pebblass and Bould-or


    Tufos
    Is there a new Lord of Avion Stratos after 'death? who is it?

    Yes. Tufos took over after Stratos heroically died during the Second Ultimate Battleground.

    ----Updated----
    My Suggestion, Make Tufos look like this


    Lord Choloh- from Vykrons bio-Lord of the Vine Jungle



    As well as all the 30th anniversary figures

    Draego Man
    The Mighty Spector
    Sir Laser Lot
    Cy-Chop
    Castle Grayskullman


    The Defenders of Trolla- Eye Beam, Netta, Compactor, Brainwave, Jet Pack, Man Crystal, Robowomen, Hans Hammer Holder
    defenders of trolla.jpg
    The Revenge Squad- Led by Lady Slither, Ra-jar, Three Beast, Bubblor, Major Header and Muckman and I guess to a lessor extent Gangstor
    lady slither.jpg
    revenge squad.jpg
    Karsack and Levitha are the two new Cosmic Enforcers, Karsack coming from Equinos, the same species as Sagitar, and Levitha being a female from the same Species as Saurod.
    http://forums.mattycollector.com/eve...7/m/4291054668

    new enforcers.jpg

    Counsler Adi, Sayrn, and Gorto are all new characters from the DC52 comics
    counsler adi.jpg
    sayrn.jpg
    265956.jpg

    Despera is kinda of a new character, but not really, just Force Captain Adora

    Mo-Larr and Stand-ar are new characters but are not really part of the myths

    Vikor, Wun-dar, Oo-Lar, Vykron, Green Goddess, Zodak, Demo man, The Fighting Foe men, and The unnamed one are all technically new characters which somewhat existed before hand, so i guess i would include them as well.

    Are there any other characters that I'm missing?

    First I've heard of Tufos; cool!

    They're not mentioned by name, but the scientists who rebuild Cy-Chop are "new." (Unless they're the 4 morons from NA...)
    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

    Choloh was originally mentioned in one of the vintage DC/MOTU comics.

    And mentioned in the bio's some where right? I can't remember off hand.


    I'm all for introducing brand new and original characters. If you want to call it "expanded" (like Star Wars) I'm fine with that.

    it was mentioned by beastman as a normal exclamation "for the beard of cholo". the vykrons bio put him in the actual new characters context.

    I'd really like figures if all these.

    Tufos has really piqued my interest since I learned about him a few hours ago... Or maybe we already have him-the reversed colors Stratos...?

    Oolar is a bit of a gray area... the 'jungle he-man' is long documented and much loved version of the character. Vikor was a sketch on a notepad that nearly nobody saw...

    Soooo he was a character before they gave him a name

    Aside from CG Man, Draego Man and maybe Cy-Chop, none of these new characters really feel like moving the brand forward to me...
    Plus we dont even know what Bandwidth and Red Strip look like.

    Honestly... I dont think there really HAS been a lot of 'moving the brand forward' since they introduced the Snake men...

    ACTUALLY, the Horde. Snakemen were pretty lame in the 80's. just the 4-5 of them and more of a 'side-faction'. MAYBE King Grayskull was moving the brand in a new direction... The three towers when THEY were introduced... Maybe the idea of a time war and Spector gives new directions...

    But really, individual characters aren't going to move a line forward... it's gonna take new ideas and PLOT that will keep the line going.

    I know I'm in the minority but I want to see a lot of characters from the Dare era get made. I'm one of those people who just wants to see what evolution He-Man will go trough and how far he and his allies can make it.

    Oh do Skeletor's son, King He-Man, and Gygor count as new characters MOTUC introduced?

    I'm with you wundarwarrior. I welcome future versions of old characters we love, plus the addition of the next generation. It only makes sense since we're getting figures of past generations right?
    I'd like to see more figures in all the eras personally. There's an eternity of potential with this brand, it's what's always been so charming about it. There's room for everything and anything in this line. Pick and choose who you like, it's kind of expected at this point there will be some you won't like, there are some I don't like, but it's always been that way. The ones I do like, I like a lot, and haven't been able to shake them from my mind in 30 years.

    Here's a rule a thumb that I use to determin if he/she/it is a new character.

    So with that logic I would answer you with yes, yes & no.

    Cause before the BGEL bio i don't recall of hearing, reading or seeing a son of skeletor

    Until a King He-Man bio I don't recall of a king He-Man

    There are colored sketches and prototypes of Gygor. what we know know as gygor.

    Is there a prototype figure? a sketch? if so to either one then no. not a new character.

    Wun-Darr and to a degree, the (Green) Goddess as a unique character (the original Goddess was basically an early form of the Sorceress and never really meant to be a completely different character alltogether).
    MOTUC Wishlist Dylamug, Songster, Evil Robot, Tuvar and Badra, Game Master, Grayskull Robot, Lizard Man, Karg, Prahvus, Skelcon(s), the new villains from He-Ro/Dare

    Personally I love POG era with the first he-ro (gray) & king grayskull & the time afterward with vikor & others. also i would love to have more characters from the future he-man era son of he-man.

    for me, I gladly accept things that progress the line. that being said, i personally don't think that King GreySkull does. I loved the creative outlandishness of the original. so saying, "well, picture he-man, but just, its like,,, for a previous generation....." well, that isn't pushing the creative limits at all in my mind. show me Dare, show me things that just might be original, or even outlandish (airbag character).

    I love the property, and i think that it is only nature that it has life. but yeah, when i use to write my own stories, King he-man statue stood proud and tall in rememberance of him, and his death, and we see what comes next.

    but that opens up alot of conversation, main one being that we are growing up, and i think alot of us, like the idea of things moving along, because we are as well.... its sort of why i believe as i get older, i like DC comics more. i use to be a marvel guy, but i love seeing the generational stuff in DC much more, evolution of Robin, Flash, Speedy, Golden/Silver/Modern age stuff..... it just makes much more sense to me.
