    Give Up One Figure Forever

    If you had to give up one figure forever from the Classics line - who would it be?

    This means that time would be altered and the figure would never have existed and there is no future possibility for it to return.

    I know the very nature of a time travel question points to a certain character, but I promise that is not my intention. I’m just really curious who people might choose.

    It took me a second to get which figure you meant but i have to admit i never cared for that figure and i don´t even own it.

    The figure i own and think has been a stupid idea is the unnamed one.

    This character should´t have gotten a figure. Its more like an idea and not a physical form if you ask me.
    *Toy version Catra *Sagitar *Drissi *Lizorr *Zilora *Battle Armor Queen Marlena *Quartzara(Minicomic Comet Warrior) *Lady Slither

    Thanks for the reply. My kids call that figure “Evil Orko” and play with it that way.

    Dekker.

    I wasn't a fan of him in the cartoon.

    Even in plastic form, his design was way too boring for my taste.

    I'd happily banish him into the well of souls, especially if we could replace him with a New Adventures character or a villain.
    Proud supporter of the Snake Men.

    Most Wanted: Slave Girl, Lizorr, T-Rex, Great Black Wizard, rest of New Adventures, MOP Demons, Dream Mistress.
    Most Wanted Filmation: Ileena, Twiggets, Dragoon, Widgets, Dark Dream, Lady Valtira, Count Marzo, Chimera.

    No Slave Girl? Watch us hurl!

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

    I do remember being dissapointed when this figure first came out. He has grown on me over the years, but I do notice he is still one of the cheaper figures to pick up.

    Thanks for the response!

    Ioved the line but to be honest so many I would have been happy to lose, it would be hard to choose just one. Sir laser lot? Horde prime? Most of the new adventures but not the she ra because it kicked butt. I could go on and I might tomorrow if I think of just one.

    The Horde Prime figure was ok to me (other than the two heads). I like the figure with the mask on. Also cool that the mask sculpt was pulled from the Filmation cartoon.

    Thanks for the response. It has been great to read these varied responses.

    Just get the new head. I wish Mattel made a headpack for different figures like the 200X head pack.

    Give Up One Figure Forever

    I find the trio of sci-fi heroes to commit the worst sin of all: they are boring. They’re not bad, they’re not ugly, they don’t make you go “what were they thinking?” They just exist, standing there in their overwhelming blueness and blandness.

    Even if I’ve proudly shouted HAIL HYDRON for years, he, Flipshot, and Tuskador could all be swallowed by the space-time continuum and I probably wouldn’t even notice.

    Plasmar. I love the idea, the concept, but the execution in figure form was a severe and shun-worthy failure, if you ask me. So much so that, no, not even a proper re-execution in its place could undo the wrong wrought upon the universe -- only striking this botch from all of space and time would remedy the egregious spiflication done to such a great character concept.

    (Meanwhile, aside: I actually really like the Frosta figure's face; it was, in fact, the reason why I bought her whereas I'd otherwise have no interest in the figure. That said, she's a traitor in my head canon, she joined the Horde. Why? Her face looks much more like a villainess, and a very cool one, imo).

    He-Ro II. I could really do without this figure in the line.
    Coming straight out of Preternia, tribal chieftess and the original WARRIOR GODDESS, SHARELLA!!!

    Sharella needs her day in Classics. She is the only remaining vintage POG character that needs a figure.
    Support Sharella for Collectors Choice!

    My top 5 wants for MOTUC: Sharella, Hunga the Harpy, Sagitar, Snake Goddess & Red Beast

    Easy question.
    That I own and could give a toss about? Count Marzo.... we have enough magical themed characters as it is, or even the faceless one, bought him because he's Evil-lynn's dad but meh

    That I don't own? Jeez where do I start. any of those Fan's choices, except Drago Man, he was cool, but Fearless Photog... (dumb)!! Might Spector?? I just can't even. And I know I'll get flamed for this but Castle Greyskull man, never saw the hype. The castle itself IS the living entity it doesn't need to be literally personified. Adding almost any of those characters seemed like overkill to me personally, but whatever you buy what you buy.

    I remember Mark Taylor said that he helped sculpt the original Castle because they weren’t understanding that it should be “organic” and living.
