Mekanotaur Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:61570  
Name:Mekanotaur
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Masters of the Universe
Creator:Banner/HULK Inc.  
Date Added:May 16, 2014
Base Figure:Optikk

This original character is a new addition to Skeletor’s crew. I based this on one of my all time favorite classic movie creatures, the Minoton. It was the strong and silent golden mechanical henchman from the Ray Harryhausen film Sinbad And The Eye Of The Tiger.

Here’s the bio written in the MOTU Classics packaging style.

Mekanotaur
Evil Mechanical Minotaur

Real name: None

Knowing that he needed more warriors to defeat He-Man and his allies, Skeletor ordered Tri-Klops to build their newest evil member. It was designed to be an unstoppable charging force even stronger than Ram Man. It was also equipped with weapons capable of defeating Roboto, the android creation of Man-At-Arms. Tri-Klops was determined to build a more powerful one.

The end result was the creation of an armored android with firearms, blades, and steel horns. Tri-Klops built it in the combined form of a man and a bull based on a legendary beast from another world. It does not speak and is programmed to obey only Skeletor’s every command. It is the mechanical menace known as the Mekanotaur.

Made from:
Transformers Tantrum – head
Optikk – body
Mandroid – forearms
Despero – spikes
Painted with black, gold, silver and red

This is AWESOME!!! I really think you should submit this next time Mattel has a fan's choice figure contest. I would love to see this mass produced and on the shelves of all the MOTU collectors around the world.
Banner/HULK Inc. - Friday, June 6, 2014
Wow, what a great compliment. Thanks suprasizeme! Now that you mentioned a fan's choice contest, this was an idea I actually had for a new character for Mattel's contest when they had one a few years ago for a new fan made MOTU character. I just never submitted it. So, I'm happy that it was well liked here on the realm.

Mekanotaur... Catchy name. I like the gold color. Reminds me of Ray Harry hausen's minoton from sinbad n the eye of the tiger... A favorite childhood movie of mine... Did I just reveal my age
