    Poll Results: Battle Royale!

    Here are results to see how folks ranked the top characters from previous polls. The main page poll setup by Adam Tyner ran for a week and 729 votes were cast, giving us a fair confidence rating on the results. And thanks to Penny Dreadful for organizing the whole thing and to the fans on the forums for helping narrow down the initial list!

    1. Eldor
    2. Lizard Man
    3. Evilseed (Mike Young Productions)
    4. Madame Razz (with Broom)
    5. Skeletor (New Adventures Toy)
    6. Robot Knights
    7. Calix
    8. Hordak (Filmation)
    9. Imp
    10. Granita
    11. Hawke
    12. Karg (1987 Movie)
    13. Horde Mummy
    14. Horde Wraith
    15. Sorceress (Mike Young Productions)
    16. Veena
    17. Despara (current DC comics)
    18. Terror Claws Skeletor
    19. Skeletor (1987 Movie)
    20. Lodar (vintage MOTU mini-comics)
    21. Tuvar
    22. Baddrah
    23. Masks of Power Demons (vintage MOTU mini-comics)
    24. Oo-lar AKA Alacala He-Man (vintage MOTU mini-comics)
    25. Evilseed (Filmation)
    26. Crita (standard version)
    27. Darius
    28. Mammoth Man
    29. Mara (dress version)
    30. Master Sebrian

    Many Filmation characters ranked closer to the top while many New Adventures characters from the Jetlag cartoon ranked near the bottom. But the margin of popularity between each character was even and relatively small throughout the entire poll which suggests a solid list of potential MOTUC characters despite ranking.

    What are your thoughts on the results?
    And here's hoping MOTUC goes to 2016 and beyond so we can get some of these characters!

    Would have thought Oo-lar would have finished a lot higher. It's also interesting to see MYP Sorceress finished just one place above Veena.

    Darius & Master Sebrian deserve a better position as well.

    I'm surprised Granitia is number 10. Is that because people want her with their rock-men? as a stand alone figure without this past SDCC exclusive would she still be a contender?

    Master Sebrian being at the very bottom makes me quite sad

    Not surprised that Eldor took it, he was my #1 choice in that poll too! I am surprised at how high MYP Evil Seed ranked though, would have figured he would have been middle of the pack.

    Lodar and Darius are way too low for my liking though.
    Proud supporter of the Snake Men.

    Most Wanted: Slave Girl, Crita, Lizorr, Tyrantisaurus Rex, Great Black Wizard.
    Most Wanted Filmation: Lord Masque, Ileena, Granita, General Sunder, Teela, He-Man, Skeletor, Hordak head.

    No Slave Girl? Watch us hurl!

    A barbaric world without slave girls? That's truly barbaric!

    Amusing that the Battle Royale is book-ended by two very very old men.

    Yeah, that was fairly nice to see. Though fairly predictable I thought.

    Wow, intriguing results! I actually am in agreement with most of that list, but Darius, Mara and Crita would place higher. Tuvar and Baddhra are at the very bottom of my list along with Oo-Lar.

    Mostly happy with the results, not too far from how I positioned them myself. Definitely want at least the top 12 in figure form!

    Interesting results - I'm surprised NA Skeletor placed as high as he did.

    I know the margins between characters is small, but still, Calix above Imp and Filmation Hordak... and just that high on the list in general? I wouldn't necessarily mind a figure of him, but he's this character that was in an MYP episode for like 5 seconds and was only there as an excuse for Hordak to have a henchman to kill and not have it be a character that anyone was attached to.

    Eldor #1?
    Does an old guy with a hood really intrigue people that much to have him in ACTION figure form? Even Dekker was more exciting.

    If they are going to do another mini-sub, I would love for them to pull the characters from this list. So many great characters on there and very few of them have a chance of being made in the next two years.

    I think the mystique of him being one of those characters fans have known about for a while really adds to his appeal for some. He's one of the ones that "got away" from the vintage line. I actually wonder if he might not be the figure that TG hinted at as making people go hmmmmm. Since, technically he's a proto and shouldn't be in the 2014/2015 in the strictest sense. He is one of the most requested characters.

    Very Happy with the top 10 even the top 15. I hope those are the characters we get in 2014 and 2015!!!

    Evilseed MYP being in the TOP 3 made me one happy person!!!!

    Must say I am completely happy with this list. I am bummed Lodar finished so low, he is in my top 2 figure requests, but I feel he is guaranteed. He is the top mini-comic character left.

    As for Veena and MYP Sorceress, I feel they are one and the same. We already have the Sorceress in Classics. And for me, Veena's design was very similar to the MYP Sorceress. I would like to have the Egyptian theme thrown onto Veena. Done and done.

    As for Evil Seed, he has appeared in the mini-comics as the MYP version, so that is obviously the one we will get, but I do hope they include a Filmation head.

    And looking at the top 10, I think it's pretty much guaranteed that we get another Filmation mini-sub.

    Now, if only Songster, Camo Kahn and Evil Robot had made this list!!!
    TOP WANTS:

    SONGSTER, CAMO KHAN, LODAR, EVIL ROBOT, DARIUS,

    1. Eldor
    2. Lizard Man
    3. Evilseed (Mike Young Productions)
    4. Madame Razz (with Broom)
    5. Skeletor (New Adventures Toy)
    6. Robot Knights
    7. Calix
    8. Hordak (Filmation)
    9. Imp
    10. Granita

    This is awesome! Clap clap clapclapclap! Perfect Top 10 right there. Soooo happy that the Robot Knights placed so highly. We've had Palace Guards, Snake Men, and Horde Troopers. Now it's time for the Robot Knights to shine! Skeletor and the Evil Warriors need their army builders!

    I think it's the hole that he leaves. We have He-Ro, you need Eldor to complete him. NA Skeletor is the same way; we have NA He-Man, now that makes NA Skeletor a much more desired figure. Masque is probably like this if Shokoti is out.
