Everyone’s favorite Evil Warrior Langostino, Clawful is coming to the MOTU Origins Cartoon Collection. He’ll be joining Evil-Lyn and Tri-Klops in 2024! Known as the Warrior with the grip of evil, Clawful was one of Skeletor’s bumbling idiot henchmen that appeared in 7 episodes of the Filmation cartoon. According to an anonymous source, Clawful will be coming to the Cartoon Collection in 2024 and we will likely also see him revealed during MOTU March Madness 2024. While a source has revealed that he is coming to the line, we are speculating as to what episode they will be paying homage to and what Filmation accessory he will come packed with. Also, given that the Cartoon Collection is pairing a Heroic Warrior with an Evil Warrior in each wave, only time will tell which figure Clawful will be paired with. So let’s take a look at Clawful, what he might look like and what his potential episode specific accessory might be!

Vintage Toy Clawful

The version of Clawful was completely different than his vintage toy counterpart. The Filmation artists often were basing their work on concept sketches given to them by Mattel, so for Clawful, it seems that Mattel was going to go one way, and they ended up reusing a lot of parts from Buzz-Off to create the vintage action figure where the Filmation version already done. Below you can see what the 1984 Mattel version of Clawful looked like.

Filmation Clawful Figure

Released in 2016, Super7, in it’s Club Grayskull line paid beautiful homage to his He-Man and Masters of the Universe Filmation appearance. He appeared just like he did in the cartoon series. By taking a look at this Super7 version, we have a very good idea of what the Clawful MOTU Origins Cartoon Collection figure might look like.

Clawful’s Filmation’s Appearance

Clawful’s look in the Filmation cartoon was totally different than the vintage toy. He had a much more lobster like red appearance. He had an orange chest armor and two equal sized claws, unlike the toy version which had a large claw and one small claw. Clawful appeared in 7 episodes of the Filmation cartoon.

Dree Elle’s Return Filmation Episode

As we are speculating as to which episode Clawful’s accessory will come with, a good episode for the Cartoon Collection would be Dree Elle’s Return According to the Wiki Grayskull, “Dree Elle’s Return is the 53rd episode of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, written by Robby London and directed by Lou Kachivas. When the Horn of Evil is stolen from TrollaDree Elle returns to Eternia to warn Orko of the danger…although her little brother Yukkers may prove to be the greater threat.”

In this episode, Trap Jaw and Clawful steal the Horn of Evil from Trolla in an effort to rule Eternia. Dree Elle and Yukkers returns to Eternia to warn Orko.


Clawful and Trap Jaw head over to Castle Grayskull with the solen Horn of Evil in an effort to take control of the Castle!


Trap Jaw blows the Horn of Evil and unleashes it’s evil forces! The Sorceress tries to stop them, but the evil force is too strong, even for her!


The Evil forces overtake the Sorceress and put her to sleep. Just as Clawful and Trap Jaw plot to take over the Castle, Orko swoops in and takes the Horn of Evil. But look out, Clawful takes it back and captures Orko and his friends!


Just as Orko and his friends think it’s too late to stop Clawful and Trap Jaw, Orko uses his magic to take it back once again.


Then it’s He Man comes to the rescue! But Dree Elle can handle Trap Jaw on her own! He Man fights off Clawful, and Trap Jaw. Clawful takes off and leaves Trap Jaw behind!

But it’s too late, the Horn of Evil get’s out and it’s evil musics starts to spread it’s evil across the forest! He-Man blows into the front end of horn to counteract it’s evil! While Orko and Dree Elle sing happy music to reverse the evil affects of the horn.


Orko and Dree Elle’s beautiful singing worked and removed all of the evil from the Horn, and Eternia was back to a happy place!


Horn of Evil Accessory

Since Clawful was the main villain who was responsible for stealing the Horn of Evil in this episode, we feel that the horn would be a great accessory to pack with Clawful. The Horn of Evil is a highly desired by the Evil Warriors as it gives them the power to take over Eternia.
