    Nepthu; King Tamusk is alright, and honestly I could pass on either's inclusion in MOTUC, but Nepthu is cooler to me.
    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

    King Tamusk

    Another member in the Tamusk support thread believes that it's a confirmation of sorts that he is at least planned, and while there's no definite information to be extracted from that on whether he's coming or not, it's a better reply from Scott than the ones he typically gives when someone asks about 'X' character and so forth. Plus, there's that whole "re-worked roadmap" issue, but here's hoping !

    Well, I do hope he is still being planned...at least before Nepthu.

    Really, I'd vote neither as I don't like most of the Filmation designs but if forced I'd go with evil: Nepthu.

    I'd also vote neither but between the 2 I'd rather get King Tamusk in the sub.
    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.

    FINALLY!! GLIMMER IS IN MY SHELF!! Now I need a Crita!! Crita is to Mara what Evil Lyn is to Teela. If we ARE getting Mara, then we NEED Crita.

    Why isn't there a choice for neither?

    I prefer to go with neither, but if I had to I'd would always go with anyone over Nepthu.

    And that is exactly why I love you.

    Seriously though, I want BOTH of these guys. No kidding. And the best thing is that they both would be really easy to make with existing parts.

    Nepthu

    MOTU already has more than enough anglo-european influence. An Egypternian would be a welcome change. He'd probably work into the storyline better as well. Link him to the 200X Sorceress and She-RAmaybe... And he has Sand Demons which can be repainted into Rock Monsters which made all types of Filmation appearances. Nepthu all the way. In comparison Tamusk would be the most boring figure ever.

    ^Exactly.
    Not really, considering Nepthu gets changed back into a normal guy at the end of the episode. At least King Tamusk is a Sorcerer King, the last one, and he set in motion the peaceful rule that would one day lead to Palace Eternos and its kings. King Tamusk is MUCH more influential on the entire history of Eternia and already is worked into the storyline. By comparison you'd have to invent more of a backstory just to make Nepthu connected. Plus, King Tamusk traveled to the future and interacted with He-Man, and it was this instance that helped Tamusk learn to rule with peace and justice. He isn't just a barbarian, he used magic as well. Making him twice the bad@$$ Nepthu is. Plus you're including his Sand Demons as another reason why Nepthu should get made. But, they obviously won't come with him and I don't think they will be made any time soon, especially since beast skus are going to be very slim and I would think they'd go to stuff like Stridor, Mantisaur, Bionatops, or Storm first.

    Now, I am not saying Nepthu shouldn't get made or that he wouldn't look cool. I am sure the 4H would create a really great figure of him. But, I do think King Tamusk is, overall, much better in terms of existing backstory, design, and abilities, and therefore worthy of being made before Nepthu.

    Yea, both would require very little tooling.

    King Tamusk is a better design. Would make a better figure, IMO.

    Completely agree.

    One hilarious, ironic tidbit that was overlooked which amuses me is that for all the flak that Orko has received, he's the one responsible for bringing King Tamusk to present day Eternia via The Time Wheel. If it hadn't been for the goofy little Trollan, what would present day Eternia be like? Strangely enough, given that Orko is an "undercover agent" of sorts in the MOTUC bios, it could fit in rather nicely.....
