Spikor Coming To MOTU Origins Cartoon Collection

In addition to Evil-Lyn, Tri-Klops, and Clawful, we’ve received some intel that Spikor is coming to the MOTU Origins Cartoon Collection. The Untouchable Master of Evil Combat who has a trident for a left hand is joining the Evil Warriors Cartoon Collection crew! Having only appeared in 3 episodes of the He-Man and the Masters of the Universe Filmation cartoon from the 1980’s, we have a 1 in 3 chance of guessing which episode Mattel would pay homage to with his accessories.

Spikor Filmation Episodes

Spikor appeared in 3 episodes of the He-Man and the Masters of the Universe Filmation cartoon:

Having only appeared in a handful of Filmation episodes, Spikor is one of the coolest looking characters. According to the Wiki Grayskull, “Spikor was introduced into the cartoon series by Filmation shortly after his figure was released. While it is standard for Skeletor’s henchmen to be portrayed as dim-witted and bumbling, Spikor is portrayed as undoubtedly the most stupid and useless of them all. He is given a stilted, almost robotic voice – frequently altering in tone and emphasizing every second syllable as if singing – and an somewhat childlike personality. It is quite probable that this was intentional on Filmation’s part, in order to make his character more suitable for a children’s audience given his potentially frightening design.

The only episode to give him a main role is “The Games” in which he is infused with the villainous energy of all of Skeletor’s minions so that he can be chosen to represent the side of evil in a series of games set by aliens, but he is clearly a bizarre choice for the role given that he is shown to foul up repeatedly and is used as mere comic relief through the whole episode.”

The Games Filmation Episode

Given that Spikor’s role was very prominent and important in the Filmation Episode, The Games, we feel that his homage in the Cartoon Collection in this episode. The episode featured, the Bendari, an alien race from a world with no evil, come to Eternia wanting to pit the greatest representatives of good and evil against one other.

In this episode, the Bendarians select Fisto instead of He-Man, as Skeletor uses his latest invention the Evilgizer to increase the evil powers of Spikor, making him the Bendarian’s selection. It soon becomes apparent that evil will cheat, which is perfectly acceptable behavior for the villains!

Spikor Accessory Speculation

We feel that Spikor’s accessory could be the yellow game piece he is going after as part of the games. This accessory would be very easy to make as they have already made a sphere for the Cartoon Collection Mer-Man’s accessory. Mer-Man’s Pearl of Power could easily be repainted and cast as this yellow game piece.

Spikor and the Evil Henchman

With Spikor coming to the line, it will be cool to recreate this sceen with Mer-Man and Beast Man from The Games Episode!
