    I'm gonna say in terms of the must haves to me are He-man, Adam, Orko, Randor, Marlena, Teela, MAA, Adora, She-ra, Sorceress, Skeletor, Beast Man, Mer Man, Trap Jaw, Tri Klops, Evil Lyn, Battle Cat, and Panthor....then throw in my two absolute favorite figures, Scareglow and Draego Man. The rest are all amazing but if I had to narrow down my collection....those are my bare minimums.

    Well, this has turned out better than expected. I have managed to procure: He-Man, Man at Arms, Stratos, King Grayskull (He's just freekin' cool) Skeletor, Merman, TrapJaw, and Hordak. Next month I should be able to get more.
    Oh, and my Merman is Blue. Should it matter? I guess it was from the MotU vs. DC pack.

    What are the thoughts on Scorceress vs. green Goddess?

    Sorceress and GG are two different characters, get the one that doesn't break,

    Green Goddess is way cheaper, but she will either be broken in package or break after you move her legs out of the package

    Temple of Darkness Sorceress is a reasonable substitute for vintage colors Sorceress.
    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.

    Sorceress in my book, to me Goddess doesn't exist, depends on if you want all the figures, the figures from a certain canon, or something along those lines.

    Goddess = broken crotch potential
    (crap ass plastic used, but blamed on production error (known at the factory during production and supposedly fixed), but the defective ones affected by the error were released and sold anyway instead of being scrapped and rerun....which you know is standard practice, but apparently not in the factory Mattel uses)

    Sorceress = better choice, and a good figure. Temple of Darkness Sorceress would be a good alternative, has the articulated thighs.
    (except for the poorly engineered wing drums....they could have been accomplished better, that and the lack of articulated thighs)
    Recent....Flutterina, NA Skeletor
    Coming....Rio Blast (sold already)
    Wanted....Entrapa, Light Hope, (A real) Filmation Hordak & Clawful
    Considering....
    Needed....Dragstor

    Oh man, did I forget to use these [sarcasm][/sarcasm] again? Sorry....

    Check here for my My collection page, MOTU and more!

    It's all semantics, and I'm just ribbing you, but the question was: "Who else would you think would be the MOTUC Essentials?
    If a figure does not exist in MOTUC form, it can't be an essential for a collection... because it doesn't exist, get it?

    If money is really tight??

    You can't go wrong with the 12-Back crew!



    Maybe swap Faker for Evil-Lyn, but otherwise these have always been the utmost essential characters in MOTU to me........ (although I consider ALL characters essential in some way or another.... )

    The 12 back guys are all I own now(sans Teela, plus BC and Panthor). They look good displayed and I have no desire to buy anyone else. I guess after all the completionist minded purschases I made (and sold) I only ever had nolstalgia for the 12 back crew.

    I think 12 back is a good idea.

    The 12 back is awesome, but I'd leave out MEF and Faker. Evil Lyn needs to be on there and not sure who to replace MEF with. Here's my list though:

    Heroic Warriors

    He-Man
    MAA
    Teela
    Ram Man
    Sorceress
    Orko

    Evil Warriors

    Skeletor
    Evil Lyn
    Beast Man
    Mer Man
    Trap Jaw
    Tri Klops

    To me, every character is essential, but those 6 should be in every incarnation of MOTU.

    ok, the ranks are growing thanks to you guys!!!

    Figures I've managed to snag:
    He-man
    MAA
    Stratos
    King Grayskull
    Skeletor
    Trap Jaw
    Triclops
    Hordak
    Merman... sort of. He's the blue variant and I'm thinking of trying to get the real deal green.

    I'm left with three on the big list.
    Teela
    Evil lynn
    Ram Man

    What do you think? Battle ground teela/evil lynn or not?

    I personally prefer regular Teela and BG Evil-Lyn.

    No Beastman?

    You should have no trouble finding an original MOTUC Mer-Man..... most subscribers received him as the Matty apology gift earlier this year. Most of us already owned 2-3 versions of him at that time.... I would have given you mine at a steal, but I already gifted it to my nephew.

    Try hitting up the Org. Marketplace though!

    Did Evil Lyn come with another head? I know I've seen her with a helmet on.

    BG Evil-Lyn comes with both a helmeted and unhelmeted head, while the original yellow Lyn comes with just the helmeted head.

    I've managed to get all Skeletors henchmen from the 12 back accept for Beast Man.
    The heroic warriors I still need Teela, Ram Man, and either Sorceress, Goddess, or Man-e-Faces.

    Basically I'm down to the most expensive figures, unless Matty re-releases something.

    If I start saving now, I can get Castle Grayskull in.. about 12 years. Unless anyone has an alternative Castle source.

    Panthor is all I can think of if you're staying core vintage ie cartoon.
