    Poll Results: He-Man.org Filmation in MOTUC Fan

    Here are results to see how folks ranked potential Filmation characters in the MOTUC line. The main page poll setup by Adam Tyner ran for a week and 1342 votes were cast, giving us a good confidence rating on the results. And thanks to Danielle Gelehrter for organizing the whole thing, to James Eatock for his input, and to the fans on the forums for helping narrow down the initial list!

    1. Scorpia
    2. Sea Hawk
    3. Madame Razz (with Broom)
    4. Lizard Man
    5. Strongarm
    6. Robot Knights
    7. Evilseed
    8. Masque
    9. Huntara
    10. Imp
    11. Graniita
    12. Hawke
    13. Vultak
    14. Hunga the Harpy
    15. King Miro
    16. General Sunder
    17. Dree Ellle
    18. Kittrina
    19. Dragoon
    20. Dylamug
    21. General Tataran
    22. Uncle Montork
    23. Plundor
    24. Twiggets (Sprag, Sprocker, Spritina)
    25. Melaktha

    Scorpia was the clear winner, with a distinct margin of popular ranking separating her from the #2 spot. Lord Masque and Huntara were essentially neck and neck, with Masque winning by a nose. The first 10 spots had a noticeable margin of popular ranking which set them apart from the remaining 15 characters.

    What are your thoughts on the results?

    And, please head over and vote in the "200x in MOTUC" fan poll to help rank which characters you'd love to see in MOTUC.

    I wish Dylamug, Plundor, Kittrina and Twiggets were a bit higher, but am pleased for the most part with the results. Kinda cool that Granita, Hunga the Harpy and Vultak beat out King Miro. :P

    Masque and Huntara did pretty well in the poll... when you think that only one of these two is going to happen, it's pretty scary for all the characters below them...

    No necessarily the figures I WANT the most in the top 10 there, but it's hard to argue that they don't belong there. I wish one of the trollans has made it higher.

    Look at how factually popular Nepthu is

    That's a really great top 25. The only ones that do not interest me much are Dragoon and General Tataran.

    But Nepthu has his fans to. Me for example ^^
    But great list! Would love to see most of them. Tataran are not so important for me but would a cool figure I think. Dragoon isnt really interesting for me to but could also a interesting beast.
    But would love to see the Twiggets!! Maybe less posable like Cringer, would be easier to make them.
    So one Twigget with another main figure to collect all three ^^

    Cool results. Though pointless as Scotty will just make whatever he wants then make an excuse for it afterwards.

    Lizard Man, Strongarm made the top 5 and Masque and Huntara round out the top 10, and Plundor's at the bottom so I'm happy!!! A bit unsettling to see Melaktha at the very bottom.

    I was bummed by General Sunder coming in so low as well. Still, the list is really solid and I understand why other characters ranked higher than him. It matches a lot of conversation over the years.

    Interesting that Huntara and Masque came out neck and neck here in this poll with those particular two being up for a vote at SDCC. (I'm NOT implying anything, it's just interesting.)
    200X fan? Classic fan? What does that mean? I'm a MotU fan!!!

    So far, they are pretty close here on the poll that zodak74 started as well. So, I guess Mattel's poll makes sense. I think it would have been better suited for all subscribers to vote rather than SDCC. But it looks like they are both in demand no matter what happens. I feel most folks will be content if either wins.

    I hope so I have zero interest in Razz. I knew she'd finish high though tons of people seem to love her? I don't get the appeal at all (same goes for the Twiggets, Uncle Montork, Dree Elle, or Imp). I get they were on the shows but they were just so goofy and dorky.

    Everything suggests that Matty vote will be a tight one this year. Whoever looses is likely to be considered to be result of EVIL MATTEL conspiracy because they always had it for the X character.

    Looser not being made at least before 2016 is bit sad, and 2015 is rather far away for the winner too.

    That was just an example. I only wanted to point out that making fans choose between two demanded characters is a bit cruel. Had the vote been between two lesser known characters, things would have been abit more understandable. BTW, I am a bit worried by the fact that there may not be enough spots for two of the nine most wanted Filmation characters. Since four more Filmation characters are to be released in 2013, should we assume that less than five Filmation characters are scheduled for 2014 and 2015?

    Same with me! Other than that I am quite OK with the poll results.

    I definitely understand those who don't like the way these characters look or act in their various media depictions. Though I would argue that the characters you cite offer more than just comic relief, I totally get that they are just too cartoony or campy for universal appeal.

    That being said, I am always puzzled when people say they are perplexed why others like them. We all have different motivations and desire varying styles. For a lot of people (I would wager the majority given poll results) collecting these is fueled by nostalgia. The main selling point is either personal connection or recollection by fans. While getting "cool" looking figures is always exciting, that is not the main draw for all collectors. If you grew up with something and were a big fan of the cartoon then it's likely that most people (there are always exceptions) will want to collect the figures who were central to it --- especially when they have never been done in plastic before. That's the appeal here. Lots of us grew up watching characters like Madame Razz on a near daily basis and have been waiting for almost 30 years for a figure of her.

    Does that make sense? I certainly can't speak for everyone who likes Madame Razz and Broom or the Twiggets but I do know that a lot of people feel this way. I hope I've articulated why. In any event, this line caters to a wide range of tastes. Hopefully there's room for everyone's favorites!
    IT'S TIME FOR MOTUC TO GO GREEN … INCLUDE THE TWIGGETS IN 2015!!!

    This is pretty much what I was suspecting... though I am a bit surprised Huntara and Masque cracked the top ten together so very very close. Mattel should just do an outside-the-sub two-pack of these two and make EVERYONE happy!
    Also- attn: ToyGuru... NO NEPTHU!

    POP Filmation produced more core characters than MOTU Filmation, so I'm not surprised by the top 3 spots going to POP.

    Huntara and Masque are always neck to neck in every poll I've seen.

    So sad for my Sybiline.
    My MOTUC top 10 wants (POST SDCC 2014):

    Queen Angella - Hunga the Harpy - Peekablue - Toy Catra - Veena - Red Knight - Vultak - Dylamug - Sibyline - Kex Queen

    Small creatures that need to happen: 3 main twiggets
