I totally support this list.
****************Update*************** These are the top three you vote for******************
2. Mighty Bite
Everyone always talks about figures that they want in this line, and now with Filmation the list of characters leads to endless possibilities, but there are still characters that feel very important to the line we still don't have access to, mainly
1. 1987 Movie Characters (and concept art)
2. Marvel Star Comics
3. Power and Honor Concept drawings
4. Tomart Guide article concept art
5. Foreign comics (German, Brazilian,etc)
To my knowledge, any characters from these media are unable to have figures made from them cause of copyright and licensing issues, now whether that will change in the future remains to be seen, the question comes down to whether its worth it for Mattel to spend time, money and energy to pursue these leads,and will it pay off for them in them in the end. Can they make enough figures out of the media they spent time, money, and energy pursuing the right people, and is there enough interest in these figures to even pursue this. For the Filmation characters, its obliviously a no brainer, but for this lot, it depends alot on fan requests I think. For Me, I feel the most important figure that should be made is
1. Karg- I view him as the Field general of Skeletor's army and trusted military adviser. He obviously should have had figure back in the 80's, but for some odd reason, was left out (any information on why, i would love to know)
Others that I think have some validity to being made into plastic are
Lt .Andra- Prince Adams Body guard, has multiple appearances in the Star comics
Horde Mammoth or Goretusk Think he would look great as a reuse of the Gygor Buck (Classizing him), adding a huge figure to the ranks of the Horde (couldn't find original pic, sorry)
Horde Mummy or Fear-oA Favorite of alot of Fans ever since he was discovered in the Tomart guide article, possibly an ancient Horde King,
Now these figures wont see the light of day till after 2015, but I feel there is enough fan interest in some these characters to get them made. I'm interested to hear what others think and who tops out on your list?
And another question, Does anyone know if the concept art pics from NA are available to have figures made from them ? (Crystoll , Detector, Concept Hoove)

I totally support this list.
FINALLY!! GLIMMER IS IN MY SHELF!! Crita is coming... Now I NEED SONGSTER! The Awesometastic Bard!
With so many characters yet to be made, I'm not too fond of concept characters for MOTUC... Still, if I were to choose an off-limit character, I'd pick that Might Bite concept by Emiliano.
10 Most needed items for MOTUC...
Heroic: King Miro / Hawke / Dakon / Delora
POP: King Micah / Twiggets 3 pack
Rock People: Granita
He was intended for the MYP comic series but didnīt appear....still he should get a figure if you ask me.
The Emprsss is fan created i know but she is more MOTU than Cy-Chop or Sir Laserlot since she is really based on the exciting story.
*Toy version Catra *Sagitar *Drissi *Lizorr *Zilora *Granita *Delora *Battle Armor Queen Marlena *Hawke *Pebb-Liss(Minicomic Comet Warrior) *Lady Slither
I'd have to say KARG!!
Though he did appear on the list of characters for voting on the grayskull box art...
A Want List of Sorts: at this point... I just hope there is a 2017...
#1 would be Karg.
My seller/trader/buyer feedback:
MOTUC Most Wanted: 1) Stridor 2) Land Shark 3) Road Ripper
I would vote for Karg too... AND for Might-Bite !
Ted Mayer's Witch.
"My favorite Harry Potter movie is Troll."
I'd also like the Horde Mummy and Luitenant Andra
MOTUC WISHLIST - Karg | Lady Slther | Kothos | Staghorn | Sorceress of Serpos Teela | Hunga the Harpy | Kittrina | Dylamug | Hawke | Angast | Zilora | Artilla | Quakke | Robo-Woman | Great Black Wizard | Enchantress | Red Beast | Delora | DC He-Man | DC Skeletor | Lodar | Fang-Or | Mini Comics Tri-Klops | Filmation Jitsu, Frosta & Kobra Khan | Hans Hammer Holder | Granita |
THere are a lot more cool concepts from the Tomart magazine tht need to be mae ... my favorite is Hoarder, the fat cloaked figure with little Hordelings hugging the body inside the cloak. A very creepy and quite appropriate addition to the Horde in my view.
Grayskull needs its Cardboard Spacesuit MOTUCized
Voice your support in the Cardboard Spacesuit/Robot thread:
I'd love so many to get made:
-Movie versions (yet made to look as though they're the same character/person) of He-Man, Teela, Duncan, Skeletor, and God Skeletor
-Gorpo (I think this could be arranged, actually)
MOTUC Most Wanted: Skeleteen, Prince Keldor, Captain Randor, Hawke, The Great Black Wizard, Lady Slither, Spirit, Tuvar, Baddra, Cursed Marzo, and for the love of Grayskull, ODIPHUS!!!
Lubic, Karg, Horde Mummy, Might Bite, Power and Honor Concept drawings, and Tomart Guide article concept art figures please.

Karg is actually the one figure from this line that I DON"T want! I seriously can't stand him and am glad he can't be made.
I may have some other wants but I was never able to get one of the Power and Honor catalogs so I don't know what other designs exist...
Gaping holes in my collection: Regular old Teela, Weapons pack 1, Power & Honour book 1, SDCC artbook (maybe)
I think Scott is incorrect in his statement, regarding having the ability to create illustrations of the movie characters, even though they don't have the rights to make them as toys. It makes no sense for Mattel to have the rights to illustrate the characters, but not the rights to make figures of them. I mean, they are a toy company. Why would they bother securing any other rights without the toy rights?
I too want Karg. He'd be a great surprise.
Maybe the Fuerza-T characters too. I've seen some really impressive customs based on those characters.
Empresss is awesome... Hope we get a female snake leader like that.
My top 5 are:
"Oh Lord, Bless this M&M... and the mighty cockroach I slain in battle to get it." - Al Bundy
I'd be totally psyched for a Karg figure!
I agree, it seems odd that they could use him (and other off-limits movie characters) for the box art and not for a figure. Hmm.
I'm pretty sure they can do the German and Brazilian comics. Did Scott say they couldn't? Since they can do the UK comics, why wouldn't they be able to do the Brazilian or German comics?
I *think* he said they weren't sure if they could do the German Audio Plays though.
Oh, and I'd definitely take a Lt. Andra, Horde Mummy, and Ted Mayer Concept Witch if they get the rights to do them. With regard to the Mummy and the Witch, I'm pretty sure they could do them anyway since they're based on archetypal images. If they changed them a little bit, I bet they could make them, though they probably wouldn't do it until after 2015.
