He-Man and Skeletor. Two icons.
He-Man/Skeletor is obvious. And I'm proven right.
I did like the suggestion that Merman was the coolest because he had the coolest armour.
But basically anyone who chose anyone other than those two were either being terminally hip, or are working on a heavy "boba fett" principal.
stratos and mer-man. mer-man was my bath time buddy!
FILMATIONPRESENTSIn the name of MOTUC I summon: PLUNDOR! ILLUMINA! GARTH! CRACKERS THE CLOWN! CHEF ALLEN! KOWL! MADAM RAZZ! GARN! MELAKTHA! MONTEEG!
He-Man and Mer-Man. Those were and still are my favs.
Too easy. He-Man and Skeletor were always going to win this poll.
Upon realizing this, I decided to change my "Evil Warrior" vote to Zodac. I always liked Zodac, and thought it was unfair that the toyline lobbed him in with the bad guys and the show with the good, since clearly he was meant to be both or neither. A neutral "Cosmic Enforcer" who doesn't consistently ally himself? Fantastic idea!
I went Beast Man and Stratos because they were my faves in 1982. Both the closest to gorillas/apes and I love them!
Beast Man still holds up. The orange fur with the white/blue face is, to me, almost as iconic as Skeletor. Stratos has dropped a bit for me as I've gotten older and I lean now more toward Man-at-Arms. The armor, the perfectly sized swingable mace, and that beat-up, ex-boxer look to his face just makes him look TOUGH. Which is hard to do in furry boots and a furry loincloth.
