    Major Header in MOTUC

    Major Header was a runner up in 30th anniversary CAC Contest Ended up being in Lady Slithers revenge squad in the latest mini comic Fall of Eternia. He has an interesting attribute , his head as his primary weapon, a large ball and chain. The only issue i have with this that if that chain was separated would he still be able to control is body, how that works. I still I think its and interesting character to include in the MOTUC world and easy to make, furry boots and loin cloth, regular bracer forearms and a Man e faces type Body armor.

    very yes. I'll even ignore that I dont think any of the runners up should get figs, as they didnt win and were runners up.

    However he was the best of the lot, better than Grayskull man, and I would absolutely love having him.

    In this picture art, is his right leg a peg leg or is this the worst example of foreshortening I've seen?

    Liking this character more, he'd make a great figure.

    I would love, love, love a figure of this guy. I only hope that once they make him, the chain attaches to the TOP of his head, not the back or the bottom of his head. That way, if you pose him holding his chain with the head dangling, the head will remain rightside-up and not facing downwards or upside-down.

    Personally, the only way I'd want a figure of this guy is if they have his head attached to a faux chain, like Demo-Man's. Something stiff that only resembles a chain, so he could be displayed swinging it. Otherwise, (to me) he just looks like some zombie body dragging his head on a chain. Or, perhaps he could come with two chain options! One for action and one for dangling.
    Some remaining WANTS:
    Kittrina (Classics-detailed), Lady Slither, Garth, Master Sebrian, Skeleteen, Kay-La, (comic)Garn, Meliac, Sagitar, Melog, Spirit of Evil, Artilla, Drissi, Caz, Grot, Melaktha, Scrollos, Hunga, Rajar, Bubblor, Songster, Red Beast, Zed, NA Sorceress, Staghorn, Col. Blast, Fright Zone, Slime Pit, and many more.

    Major header I would so welcome to the tide of evil. As Krean'ot said about the chain I too, agree I would not like the head just lying about or dragged behind or even dangling from one of his hands it just would not look right.

    Major Header is the only one of the contest characters (Classics contest, that is) who I havn't seen any bit of background for. Does something exist, from the creator or Mattel?

    I tried to find all the winners to have them tell their story here on the org, Daniel Benedict obviously told his here on Castle Grayskullman, Mer Jim told his on the Bubblor thread, Axel created Muckman- think he talked about him when he revealed his artwork on his thread, jhoward was the creator for Three-beast(or Tri beast) he did a write up on his thread, but not sure who on the forums created rajar and major header. I reached out to one guy who i think created Rajar, waiting for him to get back to me, and Major Header- no clue, not even a guess. Maybe Val knows. Anyhoot made an awesome custom of this guy a while back really Classized him as well as kept to his design.

    Major Header doesn't get a lot of love among the CaC finalists, but he's honestly my favorite of the bunch. I still hold out hope that he (and all the CaC finalists) will eventually get a figure.

    Great custom, as usual.
    But seriously, I can't come up with a good background for him. I thought I had it with "barbarian soldier possessed by demon" but that doesn't take the clearly technological parts into account ... (And is also to close to both Skeletor's background in Classics and Three-Beast.)

    Maybe he was a military who was killed by decapatation and rogue scientists brought him back to life, with upgrades of course, and has vowed to take “ revenge” against those who did this to him, and everyone else. Lady slither promises him the revenge he seeks

    I definitely feel the same way about Major Header, easily my favorite of the competition characters. This figure would have been awesome as a boy if released in the vintage line.

    While not a competition winner, Revenge Squad villain Muck-man also is a very nice character I'd love to see released in Classics one day.

    We don't have a thread on Muck Man, do we? In fact I hadn't even heard of him before he showed up in the Minicomic.
