    Poll Results: Favorite book, comic and media characters for MOTUC!

    Here are results to see how folks ranked potential book, comic and media characters in the MOTUC line. The main page poll setup by Adam Tyner ran for a week and 723 votes were cast, giving us a fair confidence rating on the results. And thanks to Danielle Gelehrter for organizing the whole thing and to the fans on the forums for helping narrow down the initial list!

    1. Karg (87 Movie)
    2. Lodar (vintage MOTU mini-comics)
    3. Goat Man (Golden Books - MOTU)
    4. Despara (current DC comics)
    5. Oo-lar aka Alcala He-Man (vintage MOTU mini-comics, MOTUC bios)
    6. Masks of Power Demons (vintage MOTU mini-comics)
    7. Red Beast (new MOTUC mini-comics, vintage MOTU concept)
    8. Dare aka He-Ro II (MOTUC bios, series pitch)
    9. Wind Raider Pilot aka Sky High (vintage MOTU poster art)
    10. Snake Goddess (Italian comics - MOTU)
    11. Sharella (vintage MOTU boxart, POG story material, MOTUC Pre-Goddess form)
    12. Gray (Eldor cardback, POG story material)
    13. King Hiss' Slave Girl (vintage MOTU mini-comics)
    14. Garn (vintage MOTU mini-comics)
    15. Great Black Wizard (new MOTUC mini-comics, MOTUC bios)
    16. Kex Queen (vintage MOTU mini-comics, MOTUC bios)
    17. Scrollos (UK comics MOTU, new MOTUC mini-comics)
    18. Crimson Fury (UK comics - POP)
    19. Lubic (87 Movie)
    20. Songster (Power Tour, new MOTUC mini-comics)

    There was a fairly average spread across all the characters except for the first place winner. Karg had a slightly larger spread in popularity between 1st and 2nd place.

    What are your thoughts on the results?

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

    Songster DEAD LAST! The injustice!

    I'd place him and Scrollos much higher, to be honest. It'd be interesting to see how the recent reveals of the art for the likes of Great Black Wizard and Fang-or would have done to these polls.

    Awwwww, Lubic's at the bottom! ;P

    There were only a couple of these characters that I was familiar enough with to feel comfortable organizing them, so I didn't vote. Sad to see the ones I did know about rank fairly low.

    I don't know if they will bother to get the rights to Karg..

    I don't really know why people like Lodar that much. he is ok.

    After that, come Despera and Oo-lar. The 2 I want most.
    Suprised to see Lubic, Songster and Scrollos so low. They seem to have a lot of supporters.. and actually fill in some canon holes.

    I agree. Most of the characters I wanted didn't even make it to this poll but of those that did Songster and Scrollos were right at the top!
    IT'S TIME FOR MOTUC TO GO GREEN … INCLUDE THE TWIGGETS IN 2015!!!

    I would be happier with this list if it was reversed. The bottom should be the top.

    Songster I understand, even if I like him, but Scrollos? Is it just because as a record-keeper he isn't that exciting?

    At least he beat Lubic!

    My 2 top wants were actually revealed at SDCC so that was pretty crazy.
    Great to see Lodar at the number 2 spot as well. Despara ranked very high... hope TG is reading.

    At least my number 1 made it into the top ten, granted she was #10.

    Lubic may have ranked low, but out of all the choices, he still made it to the top 20! (I'd place him in the top 5 though). If a ranked #40-something like Nepthu made it, there's still hope for Lubic!

    King Hiss's Slave Girl and Oo-Lar are the only ones I'd take down to the very bottom.

    I definitely hope they get the rights to make Karg. He'd make a great figure, and how awesome would it be to pose a 4H sculpted Karg alongside Saurod and Blade?! They need to make this guy.

    Kinda bummed to see Songster and Scrollos on the low end.

    That's a very good point. These were the top 20 picks from a very long list of characters.

    Sad that Scrollos is ranked so low. He was in EVERY ISSUE of the He-Man comic and thus was a WAAAY more memorable character for me as a kid than the majority of, for example, Filmation characters (Shadow Weaver and Scorpia excepted). Similarly, I was disappointed to not see Skelcons anywhere. Big part of the He-Man mythos here in the UK.

    5. Oo-lar aka Alcala He-Man (vintage MOTU mini-comics, MOTUC bios)
    7. Red Beast (new MOTUC mini-comics, vintage MOTU concept)
    These were my top two choices and I'm glad to see they did relatively well. Unfortunately with the new direction of the line I doubt we'll see them now. Maybe Alcala He-Man as an SDCC exclusive, but I won't hold my breath. It's been 4 years since the brand manager confirmed him as being in the now-discarded roadmap.

    Karg fully deserves the #1 ranking and I hope the movie fans will have him on their shelf one day!

    Very happy to see Karg at #1 - We must get to him before MOTUC ends. Now Blade is confirmed, I'm really pumped for the rest of the movie characters, in fact they are my most wanted for MOTUC now period.

    Also happy to see Despara and Oo-larr make Top5, hope they're included in the 2 year road map.
    MOTUC WISHLIST- Karg ~ Crita ~ Despara ~ Fang-Or ~ Kittrina ~ Darius ~ Veena ~ Lodar ~ Hunga The Harpy ~ Great Black Wizard ~ Staghorn ~ Lady Slither ~ Artilla ~ Ra-Jarr ~ Major Header ~ Vultak ~ Evilseed ~ Prahvus ~ Queen Andreeno ~ Crimson Fury ~ Kex Queen ~ Hawke ~ Red Beast ~ Angast ~ Delora ~ Quakke ~ Lord Masque ~ Lizzor ~ Zilora ~ Three-Beast ~ Robowoman ~ Bubblor ~ Sagitar

    Yaaas! Despara has become one of the most powerful characters!



    Shows what some exposure in the comics can do for a character.

    Oo-Larr made it to #5! He would have made for a kick-ass traveling exclusive.

    Since Goat Man is made, there are 3 people standing in his way...

    You mean GOOD exposure. We also have bad exposure (coughredhairednew52teelacough).

    It's tough to beat First Appearance He-Man!

    Then if he does come with an Alcala head, it might be better than the He-Man head that we already have. Look at what an Alcala Skeletor head did for Demo-Man.

    its not about exposure, its about how cool the character design is.
