    Like everyone else, it was hard to pick a top 7

    1. Skeletor's head from the Rise of Evil 2 pack
    2. Leech
    3. Ninjor
    4. Stinkor (although I'm disappointed with the smell-added my own)
    5. BA Skeletor (love the shield)
    6. Tri-Klops
    7. LOP Mer-man

    Least favorites:
    1. Kronis (he's currently locked up in the Fright Zone)
    2. Keldor (His head's in a box somewhere)
    3. The Cats. They just don't look right to me. almost like they look cheap.

    Honorable mention: Roboto. Love the figure overall but very disappointed that they left out his heart piece which was a big part of his mini-comic origin.

    1)vintage head He-Man
    2)mini comic Trap Jaw
    3)vintage head Skeletor
    4) Man-at-Arms (from the guard set)
    5)Fisto
    6) LOP Mer-Man
    7)Goddess

    1)Origins head He-Man
    2)200x Skeletor
    3) Jitsu...okay, I actually do like Jitsu lol. But I just wish the skin tone wasnt so red and matched the vintage figure. And having one eye off seems to be a consistent trait unfortunately (from the ones Ive seen).

    4) LOP Beast Man (Power-Con)
    5) Mantenna
    6) Sorceress (Orange/blue)
    7) Keldor/Skeletor

    Worst 3:

    1) Kronis
    2) Stratos (either version)
    3) Space Sumo
    Slight update to my top 7:

    1) LOP Mer-Man (Power-Con)
    2) LOP Man-At-Arms (Power-Con)
    3) Leech
    4) LOP Beast Man (Power-Con)
    5) Mantenna
    6) Whiplash
    7) King Randor

    None of these are perfect figures, of course, but Whiplash and King Randor have big "hand candy" appeal

    Edit: by flaws I mean:

    1) LOP Mer-Man (Power-Con) - wrong number of fingers, no scales on trunks, cross sell art colors rather than prototype colors
    2) LOP Man-At-Arms (Power-Con) - armor is a bit too big for him as is the weapon (size should be slightly smaller but bigger than vintage). Face matches vintage toy but not prototype
    3) Leech - extra hands are a bit odd - colors would be better if matching the first release Leech figure
    4) LOP Beast Man (Power-Con) - needed sculpted toes
    5) Mantenna - almost perfect, blue skin is too dark
    6) Whiplash - spear should be more orange than red
    7) King Randor - mustache and eyebrows are glossy

    All in all though still great figures

    This was actually a tough one; I realized I'm pretty neutral on MOTUO overall. My top 7 are:

    1. She-Ra: she feels like the best value for an Origins release, with her accessories, soft goods, and removable armor. I hope to find a v2 version with the corrected eyes and knees someday.
    2. Horde Trooper: this guy is super fun to pose and army build with.
    3. LOP Mer-Man: this is the Mer-Man I always wanted as a kid. I love how he turned out, although I wish he had a spear.
    4. Grizzlor: this guy has always been a top character for me.
    5. Leech: I love how they respected Leech's classic design while also giving updated pieces for a more modern looking display option.
    6. Sorceress: they improved upon the old design. Great update!
    7. Hordak: he's a faithful update to the original. I like him.


    Honorable mention: WWE Chyna. I think she turned out very well, and I hope to see Mattel make use of the plastic cape and Filmation tiara on a She-Ra re-release someday.

    My bottom 3 are:
    1. Kronis: his face sculpt is awful, and he can't really hold his rifle very well. I haven't found a great place to put him in my display yet.
    2. Eternian Goddess: I was excited to see this character get an official release, but she was incredibly lazy. She needed a new head without Teela's hair, and her spear weapon. Mattel needs to retire the MOTUO Teela mold at this point, it's run it's course.
    3. Buzz Off: I just found him boring after I got him opened. He didn't stay on my shelf very long.


    Honorable mention: 200X Evil-Lyn. Like with the Goddess, this was a cheap repaint that Mattel made even cheaper by not giving her a new, longer staff or a different crotch piece with a longer skit.

    Yeah, they cheaped out big time on her. I had to repaint her boot tops, forearm bracers, bicep armor, and then dye her staff and snake armor, and THEN buy a custom head with a helmet, and then I had a good Goddess figure. They keep making me have to work hard with these minicomic repaints. Not just the cheapness of it but also adding their own "2 cents" instead of using colors accurate to the source material

    I got mini comics stratos for $10 this past week and once in hand, had instant buyer's remorse and questioned why I bought it. So I'll rescind Jitsu and go with mc Stratos.
