    Somebody needs to start thinking about the little guys...

    The most recent trademarks got me thinking about just how many "little people" really deserve to get made into action figures before MOTUC end. Some have assumed we are going to get them via pack in like Orko & Cringer, while others have posted that they want multi-packs. Everyone is afraid of rising costs. Added pack in will probably drive the price up even more! Many characters are already fighting over monthly slots, and we already have a wide variety of quarterly items. I fear for how these little guys fit in the current strategy. I propose another sub-line. I know, I know "More you say" but hear me out. "MOTUC companion collection: Three Inch scaled, minimally articulated figures line" They would be cheaper to produced thus cheaper to buy. Half the size would mean half the price right? If packed individually this could be multiple years worth of subscriptions! But fear not for your wallet (or for display room HA!) because I'm thinking of this as a line extension in 2016 rather then a sub addition in 2014 or even 2015.


    1. Gwildor
    2. Rotar
    3. Twistoid
    4. Kowl [reuse potential; Cartoon colors, Kowla & Red Eye]
    5. Loo Kee
    6. Imp
    7. Madam Razz & Broom
    8. Sprag
    9. Sprint
    10. Spritina
    11. Sprocker
    12. Squinch
    13. Cando
    14. Laura
    15. Skeletor's Robot Knights
    16. Dree Elle
    17. Montork
    18. Odiphus (Kowl retool!)
    19. Marzo Twigget body
    20. Gorpo [Concept, sub exclusive]
    21. Oracle [Old Man Orko, MYP]
    22. Alcon
    23. Gepple
    24. Krek
    25. Meldoc


    That's mostly series regulars and popular reoccurring characters. I don't even want to think of all the fan demanded characters I'm leaving out ... You know like Starchild and Tullamore I'm sure some fan will demand them In all honesty what do you think? Am I way off my rocker? Who do you want and how much are you willing to pay for them?

    'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments" (Matthew 22:36-40).

    Uncle Montork and Dree-Elle got a trademark recently, so they MIGHT make it into MOTUC (but JUST because they're a cheap reuse of Orko's buck)...

    The other ones will cost much more, tooling-wise. SO I don't think we'll see them so soon. Maybe just one or two characters from that list, but not more than that.

    Gwildor, Rotar, Twistoid, Kowl, Loo Kee, Imp and Madam Razz & Broom are must haves, IMO. The other ones are pretty forgettable, I think. But the question is : with the end of the line looming, will they ever be released in MOTUC !?

    I'm a big fan of the little guys, so I'd be in for however Mattel decided to get them to us. My most-wanted are:

    Madame Razz and Broom (if you count them as little)
    Imp
    Kowl
    The Twiggets (Sprag, Sprocker and Spritina)
    Dree-Elle
    Uncle Montork
    Loo-Kee

    The rest I can do without.
    Most-wanted MOTUC: Granita - Hunga the Harpy - Spinnerella - Melaktha - Vultak - Dylamug - Crita - Mermista Sprag, Sprocker and Spritina

    I definitely would like several of these characters, some of which are essential IMO.


    1. Gwildor - ESSENTIAL
    2. Rotar - ESSENTIAL
    3. Twistoid - ESSENTIAL
    4. Kowl - ESSENTIAL
    5. Loo Kee - ESSENTIAL
    6. Imp - ESSENTIAL
    7. Madam Razz & Broom - ESSENTIAL
    8. Sprag - would like
    9. Spritina - would like
    10. Sprocker - would like
    11. Widgets - Maybe
    12. Skeletor's Robot Knights - would really like, borderline essential
    13. Dree Elle - would like, borderline essential
    14. Montork - would like
    15. Odiphus - Maybe
    16. Gepple - I detest the scientists, but they could probably use Gepple's buck for Gwildor. If it means getting Gwildor, I'll take 'em.
    17. Oracle - Maybe

    I've been arguing for Montork and Dree Elle since before I even had an Orko. I'd also love Imp, Kowl, Lookee, the Treeperchaun, The main Twiggets, NA Skeletor's awful "pet", the NA robot helpers, etc.

    I'd be up for a sub of these if it meant we got them, but I don't feel like there'd be enough support since they're just about all light-hearted and filmationy, and there are plenty of MOTUC collectors who are apparently without joy and cannot accept elements of MOTU history that are designed to make you smile (unless that smile is of grim pleasure). At least the full-sized Filmation sub can have "serious" characters that non-Filmation fans can at least excuse as being serious.

    I also don't think the Power Zoids would fit into this category at all, since their torsos should probably be around Ram-Man sized I'd imagine.

    I don't think Gwildor should be grouped with the rest of these guys because he had regular-size, albeit shorter, figure in the vintage line. I still hope to get a standard MOTUC figure of him.

    I support the separate sub idea for the rest of the characters you list because it lets those who want them get them while at the same time allowing those of us that are not interested in them to skip them.

    Maybe the problem is that Mattel, Scott and so forth just don’t know the best way to release them. All together in one pack, or with individual figures? Either way, these are the ones that I think must be released before the Classics line goes to bed:

    Kowl
    Loo-Kee
    Madame Razz & Broom
    Imp
    Twiggets (maybe about three)
    Dree Elle & Montork
    Gwildor
    Robot Knights

    I'd be really surprised if we didn't see at least Dree Elle and Montorq; re-using the Orko body with a few extra parts/modifications has got to appeal to Mattel. I could see a problem with the Twiggets or the Widgets, except that there may be some actual re-use for those characters as far as base bodies. I can see Sprocker and Laura using a pudgy base body with outer pieces to make the gender differences apparent. It really would be a shame to finally have the Filmation license available and not get such recurring characters, to say nothing of major characters like Razz and Broom.

    Well Kowl, Gwildor, Rotar, Loo-Kee, and Twistoid all have vintage counterparts, so there is a chance they may actually make it!

    Madam Razz & Broom
    Skeletor's Robot Knights
    Dree Elle

    17. Oracle - Maybe

    I don't even think of Rotar and Twistoid as "little guys" - they just seem to me to have full standing (no pun intended) in the regular-size line.

    My essentials are similar:

    Kowl
    Madame Razz & Broom
    Imp
    Loo-Kee
    Uncle Montork
    Dree-Elle
    Gwildor
    Spritina
    Sprocker
    Sprag
    Odiphus
    The Oracle
    Gleep (from NA - a REALLY cool character... and he deserves a spot)

    Gorpo would be cool as a novelty.. and an evil Trollan

    Squidge and Lara (the Widgets) would be cool... Kowla and Red Eye would be neat (I mean, if they made Kowl, they might as well make those two as well)
    A Want List of Sorts: Angella, Sssqueeze, Blast Attack, Multi-Bot, Peekablue, Veena, Calix, Evilseed, Mara, Point Dread & The Talon Fighter... and all the other POP & NA characters.

    I actually quite like your sub idea, LFE.

    I will not consider MOTUC complete without these:

    -Razz and Broom (I think we'll get either a regular or exclusive release here...)
    -Gwildor (regular)
    -Odiphus (one of my favorite ideas from MYP)
    -Montork
    -Dree Elle
    -The Oracle
    -Kowl
    -Loo-Kee
    -Imp (and a few of his best forms!)
    -Cursed Marzo
    -Skeltor's Robot Knights
    -...and Twistoid and Roton, if we're counting them.

    I'd really love some Meteorbs, but could be okay tracking down some Vintage ones, since scale Istanbul such an issue there.

    Additionally, I'd be thrilled to get some Twiggets, Widgets, the Scientists (unless they get voice chips!) , and anything else they want to throw at 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

    For me, only Montork and Dree-Elle are essential. But those two ARE essential.
