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.
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.
