    LOL

    Yeah... he's better than that, but I guess I can see it going just off his toy. That vintage toy was a brick that broke easy, the Scale was off and couldn't ride any vehicles... if anything he always struck me as something repurposed from a completely different toy line.

    Based on that... I could see people thinking he was Z-list... but he was in too much media for that. Frankly I think I now place him around B or C... He's not 8 back. He's not a 'main' character. Most collections and media end up moving along just fine if he doesn't show up, but get elevated when he does... But Z-list?? that's way too harsh.

    I think outside of He-Man, Skelitor, She-Ra, Hordak and maybe Teela no one needs a variant, not with how many characters there are. As for Ram Man he's B-list maybe A list.

    By this criteria, MOTU A-list is definitely He-Man and Skeletor, and MAYBE Battle Cat, Sorceress, Man-At-Arms, Teela, Evil-Lyn and Orko.
    And I'd even reconsider some of those too, because to me, A-list includes easy recognizability by non-fans (to make a DC comparison, Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman would be A-listers).

    Virtually every other character has to be B-list or less simply because if I went to a non-fan, showed them a picture and asked "who's this?" the best reply I'd expect would be "looks like a He-Man character" but more likely I'd hear "beats me".

    Ram-Man is a high B-list character, but let's not kid ourselves, regardless of how much we love him

    I love Ram-Man ... I have him as a B-Lister , because I think he worked well when we only saw him every third episode or so.

    B-lister, I should think. Not essential, but he IS one of the most strongly characterized Masters. He was one of the characters I thought Filmation used REALLY well. He wasn't a core character, but he was around enough, and got enough development and attention, that he was one of the characters you really got to know.
    Don't think, that'll only confuse you.

    Not variant worthy because for me he's a C-list character. He wasn't one of my favorite figures and I don't remember him much from the mini comics or the Filmation cartoon. I considered B-List for a moment because of his appearances in 200X, but even those weren't enough to bring him higher.

    Well with a cast of 4 hero's chances are that if the show takes off we very well could be hit with a wave of variants like "Smash and grab Ram Ma'am" ARgH it still stings about Ram Man but oh well, haven't seen one second of him in revelations.... "Whirling Weapons Skeletor" and "Electronic talking Orko"coming soon...

    I could see it... the upcoming empowered figure and a possible unpowered one from the first 10 episodes alone. Who knows what additions could come from future episodes?

    Oh, if that Lighting Strike He-Man does well, they probably could do a similar variant with her and with the other heroes.

    C-List to me, because I never knew what to do with his 80s toy!

    He looked like he didn't belong to the same toy line as the others, so I just stuck him at the controls of the Attak Trak for want of anything better to do with him!

    What saves him from a lower rank is his appearances in the 2nd wave of mini-comics, which are superb!
    All I want now is the Attak Trak in MOTUC

    Oh and the Twiggets would be nice too!

    If the line so far is any indication, she's very likely to get a variant with a cycle of some sort.
