That's how I see it.
I just hope they pack in a 2nd GITD head that is blank (similar to the masked face of DC's The Question) like the spirit of Grayskull was portrayed on the bio card and in the vintage mini-comic.
New stuff is up.
Most intriguing is this Master Re-Deco List!
Wow! two of My questions made the cut! Cool!
I wonder how many other Buzz Offs there are without the peg holes?
But as TG said Buzzy stands perfectly without a stand! he and whiplash are solid as rocks!
I was rather disappointed with Mattel's answer to the "please say whether or not the Filmation rights are being pursued" question. They weren't clear! Are they or aren't they still trying to obtain the rights?
My guess is that they aren't, because if they were to say that clearly, some fans would likely drop this line.
Heck, even without the Filmation characters, people are buying in droves, so I guess it's in Mattel's best interests to be vague and see what happens.
It just gets under my skin. Be honest! SAY you're not going after them because they're too expensive, or whatever the case is!
Then again, maybe because this is business they can't just be blunt about it. Whatever. Mattel annoys me.
The POP answer is awesome, But I still hafta wonder at the point of asking it at all, I guess its back to the old 'Princess of Power' is Sissy Yuck! I want a butch 'The great Rebellion' sticker to reassure myself of my manhood!'
But on closer inspection, the poster seems to be female, so she may be just asking it, cos shes curious.
I would love to see a Filmation line of MOTU & POP toys based of the cartoon designs, but also including characters from other Filmation cartoons that looked similar like, blackstar, bravestarr, flash gorden and Isis.
I agree! And I'm loving that Filmation look.
Well, I dug some old comics out of the loft the other day. In one of them Shadow Weaver appeared. It was in issue 42. At the begining of the magazine it states, He-Man etc and all other character's devices herein, along with their related indicia are trademarks of Mattel Inc. It mentions nothing of Filmation's involvement. Also, Shadow Weaver appeared in two of the Lady Bird story books of that time and in that it mentions nothing of Filmation's ownership of related characters. So what gives? Surely it would't be that difficult to produce a MOTUC version of Shadow Weaver. :hmconf:
That is, if they decide to get to those figures. I think that is great as more MOTUC is all that I want :tjlol:
With the inconsistent quality control of this line, it seems that Mattel can barely handle one figure per month with the occasional bonus figures. So while I'd like more figures, I'd much prefer to wait a few extra years to get them if that means a better chance at better QC.
It's such a pitty about the Filmation characters. I'd also love to see Dylamug join the MOTUC line in the future. I thought Dylamug as a Horde Vilain back in the 80s was so original. Back when I saw that first She-Ra cartoon I thought that he was going to be one of the bad guys of the show, then as it turned out he never appeared again until season 2. What a waste of a good idea, I thought! There was something about his appearence that shouted original in that his face was positioned in the centre of his robotic abdomen. Cool. Somehow, I do believe Mattel will get round to the filmation characters. They're not revealing anything to fans because they want to retool all the original figures first as well as concepts, then a few more years down the line the first Filmation figure will be revealed. Like most things in business, they build up to it and reveal nothing until it happens.
I realise I am in the extreme minority here, but I dont want new figures/characters (beyond Marlena,Marzo and a few that should have been figures).
If they start wheeling out 'Horde Trooper sergeant' or similar Im out of the Sub!
Why wouldn't you want new charecters? I don't think camo Horde Trooper could ever be relased outside of TRU type stuff.
Well.. to a point anyway.
My 'official' answer is that I want ALL of my favorite characters released before any new characters I don't know. Cool new characters can come out before the sucky vintage characters I hate :hmwink:
However since that is a very flexible list, their 'original characters first' is probably the right way to go ;)
Well since they insist on spacing stuff out, new charecters in between will fit fine and feel fresh. ToyGuru said it's the line's mandate to release every single vintage charecter before creating charecters out of thin air like the Fighting Foe Men.
Love the fact guys like Procrustus, Choloh, the Demon from Man-E-Faces mini-comic, the Obelisk warriors, etc, are all supposedly on the Master List.
Not to mention the Castle Grayskull spacesuit and Underwater Attack Teela.
Still hoping something may happen for the charity Pink Teela/Pink Sorceress 2 pack.
