Along with his armor, Zodac also came with a blaster weapon which I am missing. In the cartoon he was seen riding a floating techno-chair. I frequently used the thrown from Castle Grayskull as his vehicle when I played with him. Even though he was supposed to be neutral he seemed to always help the heroes in the cartoon, so I always made him a good guys when I played with him as a kid.

Zodac - Vintage MOTU
Zodac is one of the more mysterious Masters characters. He was originally packaged as being an "Evil Cosmic Enforcer" although the "Evil" was eventually dropped from the package. He was frequently used as a "Neutral" character in comics and cartoons, leaving many He-Fans rather confused. The character has Skeletor's claw feet and arms and Beastman's hairy chest. He's molded in a standard flesh tone. Zodac wore a red and grey helmet and removable armor. His sculpt used many "evil" parts, but he would be the only "human" villain based on the flesh tone in the early stages of the line.

I remember getting him,He-Man and Skeletor all at the same time one year which was a blast for me!ReplyDelete
Zodac was my first Masters of the Universe action figure. I was pretty young when I got him and couldn't remember his name, so I named him Mr. Lady Bug Head Man. He remains one of my absolute favorite characters to this day!ReplyDelete
And later he was black right?ReplyDelete
In the 200x cartoon he was depicted as black and had glowing tatoos. In the modern toy line (MOTU Classics) both characters exist as two different people. Zodac and ZodakDelete
I always thought he was a good guy.One of the cooler looking figures from the line IMO.Delete
Zodac was always one of my favorites of the original line. He was the perfect blend of space/barbarian with a little mystery thrown in for good measure.ReplyDelete
