    Favorite First Time Item of 2012

    Another year has come and gone for MOTUC and 2012 saw a lot of first timers being immortalized in plastic.

    We had brand new characters, concept characters, prototype characters, never before seen variants of old favorites and long awaited fan favorites finally show up in the line.

    Out of all those that made it into plastic form for the first time, which was your favorite?
    Proud supporter of the Snake Men.

    Most Wanted: Slave Girl, Crita, Lizorr, Tyrantisaurus Rex, Great Black Wizard.
    Most Wanted Filmation: Lord Masque, Ileena, Granita, General Sunder, Teela, He-Man, Skeletor, Hordak head.

    No Slave Girl? Watch us hurl!

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

    I know Granamyr looks cool, and I don't have him yet....not even a notice....but I have to go with Draego....

    I buy what I like, if I don't like it, it stays right where it belongs....far away from my collection....and I own or will own with Granny, only 8 off that list....

    Shadow Weaver, Draego, CGm, Randor, Granamyr, Sorceress, Horde Prime & SMAA. I would like to get Griffin....

    I would only own Starla if the Star Sisters were individual figures....the rest of the figures from the list I didn't mention, to me....are just bad or unimpressive....

    I'm going to say Draego Man...

    1. Dekker
    The Master of Arms must truly be a samurai/pirate/jedi being his "surprise" factor wins him all the awards from me. That and he's the element that rounds out the main crew of Masters that I didn't know I always needed.

    2. 200X Duncan (SMAA)
    Great update to the main co-protagonist of the series. I love the "new" armor, and the great colors. But if we never got him, we'd still have regular MAA...

    3. Castle Grayskullman
    The brand newest concept, the only reason he doesn't take 1st place is he's a very special occasion/circumstance kind of character.

    Definitely Draego-Man. Could've easily gone with Griffin, though.

    so many in 2012.
    I long awaited the snake men army builder since I was a kid. the griffin was amazing. the 30th figures were good to have in the line as something completely new. I absolutely love Photog! Horde Prime was a nice surprise. Procrustus & Granamyr are a nice addition & a dream come true. what an amazing year. Vycrom, Star Sisters & SM@A too.

    Starla.

    It is weird because I never had any strong love for Starla as a prototype vintage toy or even her prototype MOTUC figure when it was revealed in 2011. However, she's kind of a sleeper hit for me. Maybe becaue her colors catch my eye more than the others, I dunno.

    Procrustus was my #2.
    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.

    Nothing could beat Shadow Weaver. She has been long over due.

    I chose Eternos Palace King Randor!
    I looked from a perspective of what I always wanted for many years so any new creations would not fit in that perspective.
    A true King Randor without the Battle Armor is what I wanted for a long time!
    Shadow Weaver would be my 2nd just because I didn't know about PoP earlier otherwise she would definably be the #1 favorite!
    MY MOTUC WANTS: Gwildor, Rotar, Mermista, Angella, Peekablue, Spinerella, Perfuma, Master Sebrian, Sagitar, Tuskador, Darius, Kayo, Vizar, Nocturna, Spinwit, Artilla, Saurod, Ninjor, Evil Seed, Lord Masque, Twistoid, Hunga the Harpy, Dragstor, Vultak, Multi-Bot, Blast-Attak, Tung Lashor, Sssqueeeze, Lizorr, Hoove, Critta, Quakke, Butthead, Staghorn

    Granamyr might be one of my favorite figure in the line at all. I've been actually excited about getting this guy since they took the poll at SDCC a year ago, and waited like a little kid for him to come in the mail. Great, great figure.

    After just getting Granamyr, now I have to say He is awesome, but since I can't put his tail on for display reasons (he sits too far out with it to sit anywhere but the floor) I still say Draego Man, but Granamyr is second, and I am going to get Griffin this month, since they miraculously have stock after the big sales of 2012 are over....so likely I will change my mind on something, because Griffin looks awesome in pics and reviews.

    Draego beats Granamyr simply because of all that detail in a small package, for a 7" figure that dude is well sculpted and just powerful looking. Granamyr is a awesomely huge piece of plastic that is nicely done and well sculpted, the box is cool and everything.

    My favorite 2012 figures (in no order) Draego-Man, Granamyr, Rattlor, Mekaneck, Frosta, SMAA (only because of the Duncan mustached head), DB Skeletor & likely Griffin once I get him.
    Of second favorite mention....TP He-Man, Horde Prime, EP Randor, Stinkor (smells too bad to keep uncarded) & TOD Sorceress (she just looks better proportioned than the original with the taller boots and articulated thighs).

    For me, it's gotta be Spector! Love this concept, love the sculpt!
    Of course, he'll be even better when I'm done customizing him!

    Procrustus. Toy of the year. Imagine how awesome it would have been for us as kids if he'd been released at the same time as the minicomic, towering over our five-inch figures. Drago-Man was also surprisingly great.

    Fearless Photog! I love this guy and to finally have Mattel make good on their long-ago promise was a high point in the MOTUC line for me. This was another great year though, and every item brought a smile to my face!
    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
