Here is an example of what I had come up with and mentioned above. As I said I started to come up with this guide before the line was "in trouble" and before the all star 2014/2015 plan was announced: so this road map I came up with was more about having each year be as even of a mix for as long as possible.

In my road map I'd kept things going in 2020 and onward with more Filmation characters, etc but 2019 was the last year for actual vintage figures to show up in the line.
As long as I get these I don't care where/when they come...
Madame Razz and Broom
Evil Seed (MYP version)
I have faith in Mattel and the 4H that they can get this done within 2-3 years. :sklol:
For the sake of time I'll just do 2014.

Oh, and the Granamyr's Throne Room playset! ;)
If this lasts 4 more years, which I hope it does, I want everything. I want every figure released in MOTU, POP and NA from 1982-1992. That includes the Euro LP He-man and LL Skeletor. Intertwined in all that I want Filmation, Filmation and more Filmation. I want POG figures and comic book figures as well. I'm going to need a Snake Mountain too Mattel.
Thanks! Yeah, I have a feeling the Teela Vs Evil-Lyn pack could create quite a stir, both good and bad. On the one hand, there are still so many people in need of Teela, that I couldn't imagine that sort of pack collecting dust on Matty's site. And a lot of folks still want that 2002 styled Evil-Lyn. But then there IS the whole "Well, if we get these two, we're going to miss out on some of the other folks." But then again, if these are offered "outside the sub", then they're not really taking the place of anybody- I suppose. I dunno... there's a lot of ways to look at it I guess. Other similar Two-Packs I thought of that would be neat along the lines of Teela 3.0 Vs. Evil-Lyn 3.0 were: Illumina & MYP Sorceress (for the 2002 era fans) or a nice NA Sorceress & NA Teela Two-Pack (for the NA fans). But then, these are also pretty much the same characters getting their 3rd variants...

"He's at NYTF, 2015!"... LOL.
The way i see it TG has stated he wants to make all the figures that were made in the original line (MOTU, POP, NA) as well as sprinkle in some filmation, mini comic, Jetlag, etc, etc. And all of this should wrap up in the next 2-3 years. So, I agree that figuring out a formula is the best way of getting making sure that all those characters get made. Now in regards to characters that have never had figures, we have a pretty good clue as to who some of them were going to be. Back when we voted on a fan choice figure, some of these popped out when we narrowed it down to the 8 that he-man.org were sumbitting.
Figures reported to already be under consideration by Mattel:
Calix - Seen in: MYP He-Man episode: “The Power of Grayskull”
Description: Calix was a member of the Horde during the time of King Grayskull. When this hulking stone-like being offers counsel to Hordak, he is quickly destroyed by the ruthless leader of the Evil Horde who “so hates bad news.” Fans have been asked for him since he appeared in this episode, so it's no surprise Mattel may already have him lined up.
Goat Man - Seen in: MOTU Golden Book "Secret of The Dragons Egg" pgs 13, 14, 15
Description: Goat Man is an Evil Warrior who takes his orders from Beast Man. His demonic horned visage is a fearsome sight to behold. He was shown on the slide at the Mattypalooza panel revealing Mattel now had rights to Filmation and various book characters. It makes sense to hear he's potentially moving forward as a figure.
Hordak (Filmation) - Seen in: Filmation She-Ra series
Description: Hordak’s color scheme in the cartoon differed from the colors on his action figure. Notably, his arms, legs and the “crest” on his head are blue in the cartoon. An obvious choice in the eyes of many fans. It's possible he would have been one of the final 2-pack releases before the DCUC vs MOTUC line was canceled.
Songster - Seen in: The Masters of the Universe “Power Tour”
Description: Songster is the great bard and minstrel of Eternia. He relays epic stories through song and music. He dresses in a very flamboyant manner and carries a hybrid ax/guitar. Word on the street is that he's planned and lined up for a future release. Love him or hate him, he was the second most requested character on the forums.
Wind Raider Pilot - Seen in: Art from 80s “Grayskull poster”
Description: A masked pilot is seen flying the Wind Raider in the painted art for one of the classic MOTU battle posters. Nothing is known about this enigmatic individual. It has been rumored this figure was originally supposed to come with the Wind Raider.
Figures bumped due to tooling restrictions or other reasons:
Admiral Scurvy - Seen in: Filmation She-Ra episode "Anchors Aloft Part 1 & 2"
Description: A “seafaring” Horde villain, Admiral Scurvy is the sworn enemy of Sea Hawk. His eye patch obscures a small laser cannon which is embedded in his eye socket. He is evil through and through. It may require too much tooling to be in this poll.
Castle Grayskull robot armor - Seen in: A standup from inside the original Castle Grayskull playset
Description: Many have wondered about the origins of the robot armor found within the walls of Castle Grayskull. Perhaps one day its mysteries will be revealed. It would require too much tooling to be in this poll.
Crystoll - Seen in: Prototype of the He-Man (New Adventures) figure Karatti
Description: This crystalline warrior concept for the 1989 “He-Man” toyline was later redesigned as the character Karatti. The original design is quite different from the final toy. It would require too much new tooling to be in this poll.
Demon of the Shakarran Crystal - Seen in: MVCreations He-Man comic Volume 1 issue 4 - pages 15,16,17,18
Description: The “demon” trapped within the Shakarran Crystal is a force of pure evil. The entity is capable of corrupting any who spend too much time with the crystal. The being trapped in the crystal is part of Nordor’s (aka Horde Prime’s) essence. When the foul entity eventually emerges, it takes on a misshapen semblance of He-Man’s appearance. It's more of a beast figure, and would require too much new tooling to be in this poll.
Granita - Seen in: Filmation She-Ra episodes “The Rock People” and “The Light of the Crystal,” and in the MOTU newspaper comic strips
Description: Granita is a heroic female member of the peaceful Rock People. In the newspaper strips she is depicted as Stonedar’s daughter and Rokkon’s sister. It is likely that she was planned as a figure for the MOTU line. It would require too much tooling to be in this poll.
Haramesh - Seen in: He-Man mini-comic "Siege Of Avion"
Description: Haramesh is a foul yellow demon with horns and large fangs. Using the Emerald Staff of Avion, Skeletor commands the infernal creature to destroy Castle Grayskull. It's more of a beast figure, and would require too much new tooling to be in this poll.
Hunga the Harpy - Seen in: Filmation She-Ra episode “Reunions”/“Secret of the Sword” movie
Description: Hunga is the nightmarish harpy queen of Etheria’s Talon Mountains. The winged creature once kidnapped Queen Angella but was later defeated by He-Man and She-Ra. It may require too much tooling to be in this poll.
Keclar - Seen in: UK Magazine and Adventure Magazine/Comics, several issues including the Twins of Power Special pages 3, 4, 5
Description: Keclar was the leader of the Elders of Eternia. He was a powerful mage with a distinctively tall hat and a flowing white beard. It would require too much tooling to be in this poll.
Might Bite - Seen in: Concept MVCreations comic character
Description: This Evil Horde shark man was illustrated by Emiliano Santalucia and has appeared on He-Man.Org. His vicious jaws await unwilling prey. Despite being the third most requested character on the forums, this was a concept character that didn't make his way into the MVCreations comic in time.
Red Knight - Seen in: Filmation She-Ra cartoon episode "The Red Knight"
Description: No one knows the identity of the heroic Red Knight. When the Evil Horde attacks the Rebels as they make their way to the Rebel Fair, the Red Knight arrives on horseback to help the heroes. The Red Knight asserts that his identity will remain a mystery until Etheria is free. It may require too much tooling to be in this poll.
Sleetah - Seen in: Advertisement in MVCreations He-Man comic Volume 3 Issue 2
Description: Sleetah the snowcat is Illumina’s massive, white-furred feline companion and mount. Little is known about this magnificent animal. She would be a beast based on the Battle Cat and Panthor tooling.
Zodac (200x alien design) - Seen in: Original Four Horsemen concept for the 200X Zodac
Description: The Four Horsemen originally designed the 200X Zodac as a lanky, long-limbed extraterrestrial. This design is a radical departure from both the vintage Zodac and the final 200X Zodak. It would require too much tooling to be in this poll.
The Obvious List:
Batros - Seen in: Filmation He-Man episode: "The Great Books Mystery"
Description: Batros is an intelligent bat-like villain from the dark hemisphere of Eternia. When the books on Eternia vanish, Batros is revealed as the culprit. The clever scoundrel knows that knowledge is the most valuable power of all. Batros is a figure many fans have wanted as a figure for years.
Crita - Seen in: Many episodes of The New Adventures of He-Man
Description: Crita is the only female Mutant in Flogg’s villainous ranks, and is the most human-looking member of that motley crew. The devious Crita enjoys a flirtatious relationship with Skeletor, who encourages the villainess to become the official Mutant consultant to the Gleanons on the planet Nekron. Female villains in figure form are rare and Crita would be a welcome addition.
Eldor - Seen in: 1987 Mattel catalog, prototype MOTU: Powers of Grayskull figure
Description: A prototype figure and cardback were created for Eldor in the 80s, but he was never released as a toy. Eldor was a wise sage and mentor to the legendary He-Ro. His white beard and elderly appearance belie the fact that he was a powerful heroic force in Preternia. He was the guardian of the Book of Living Spells. We're surprised he hasn't been released already as a figure.
Fang-Man - Seen in: Filmation He-Man episode "The Time Corridor"
Description: Fang-Man is a reptilian, blue-scaled Evil Warrior who serves Skeletor. He possesses the power to control Dragosaurs and is quite the fiend. Fang Man accompanies Skeletor on a vile mission into the past. Fang-Man is one of the top He-Man Filmation characters requested by fans to receive the figure treatment.
Icer - Seen in: Filmation He-Man cartoon season 2 episode 11, "The Ice Age Cometh"
Description: Icer is an Evil Warrior in service to Skeletor. The chilling villain possesses cold-based powers. For example, he can turn himself into water and can encase enemies in ice. Icer assists Skeletor in his plan to infiltrate the Eternian Weather Station. He is a figure many fans have wanted as a figure for years.
Imp - Seen in: Many episodes of the Filmation She-Ra cartoon
Description: Imp is the wise-cracking, mischievous sidekick to Hordak. The rancid little troublemaker is dear to Hordak and, unlike all the other members of the Horde, Imp is somehow exempt from his master’s fits of anger. Given his size, we wouldn't be surprised if he's included as an accessory somewhere down the line.
Lizard Man - Seen in: Filmation He-Man episodes "She-Demon of Phantos" and "Song of Celice"
Description: Lizard Man is a reptilian Heroic Warrior. He is very quick and agile. Lizard Man journeys to Phantos with He-Man, Teela, Stratos, Battle Cat, and Man-At-Arms. There, he assists in the battle against the possessed Queen Elmora. He also accompanies He-Man and other Heroic Warriors in their mission to stop Yog. He was shown on the slide at the Mattypalooza panel revealing Mattel now had rights to Filmation and various book characters. It makes sense that he's potentially moving forward as a figure.
Lord Masque - Seen in: Filmation He-Man episode “House of Shokoti part I”
Description: Masque is a mysterious villain who serves the ancient witch Shokoti. When Prince Adam and his comrades set out to find the Fortress in the Sands, Masque attempts to delay them. He-Man finally confronts Masque and, with Orko’s help, destroys the villain’s mask which causes Masque to dissolve into nothingness.
Madam Razz & Broom - Seen in: Many Filmation She-Ra episodes
Description: Madame Razz is a very kind-hearted old witch, and she is also a member of the Great Rebellion. She is one of the few who know that Adora and She-Ra are one and the same. Despite her addle-brained behavior, Madame Razz possesses great power and wisdom. She is rarely seen without her sarcastic companion, Broom.
Mara - Seen in: Many episodes of the New Adventures of He-Man cartoon series and had an unreleased prototype He-Man (New Adventures) figure.
Description: Mara is the heroic assistant of Master Sebrian. She later becomes the leader of the Galactimytes. She comes quite close to figuring out that He-Man and Prince Adam are the same person. Mara has two distinct looks in the cartoon. She starts out with simple robes, and is later depicted with a look more in line with her unreleased prototype action figure.
Prahvus - Seen in: MYP He-Man cartoon episode “Out of the Past”
Description: A warlord who wreaked havoc on Eternia after the rise of the Mystic Wall, Prahvus was a fearsome figure in Eternia’s history. When he attempted to attack the village of Pelleezeea, he was defeated by a young Sorceress. Later, Prahvus joined other warlords and terrorized Eternian lands during The Great Unrest.
Scorpia - Seen in: Many episodes of the Filmation She-Ra cartoon
Description: One of the more popular Filmation Horde villains, Scorpia speaks in rough tones and behaves in rough ways. While she possesses the face and body of a human woman, she has red scorpion pincers instead of hands. She also has a tail which can deliver a terrible sting to her victims. Scorpia is a deadly foe.
Sea Hawk - Seen in: Several Filmation She-Ra cartoon episodes
Description: Sea Hawk is a pirate who aids the Horde by delivering supplies in exchange for money. Despite this, he is a good man. Adora shows Sea Hawk the error of his ways and convinces him to join the Rebellion. There is much romantic chemistry between Sea Hawk and Adora. He was shown on the slide at the Mattypalooza panel revealing Mattel now had rights to Filmation and various book characters. It makes sense that he's potentially moving forward as a figure.
Shokoti - Seen in: Filmation He-Man episode “House of Shokoti Part II”
Description: Shokoti is an ancient and evil sorceress from Eternia’s past. Her spirit is awakened by young Stanlan when he enters her temple. Unspeakable horrors await He-Man as he, Battle Cat, and Ram Man attempt to rescue the boy from Shokoti’s clutches. She was shown on the slide at the Mattypalooza panel revealing Mattel now had rights to Filmation and various book characters. It makes sense that she's potentially moving forward as a figure.
Strong Arm - Seen in: Filmation He-Man episode “She-Demon of Phantos”
Description: Strongarm is an Evil Warrior in service to Skeletor. He wears a hideous spiked metal mask and is possessed of a powerful cybernetic arm. Strongarm appears to be a capable and powerful villain. He accompanies Skeletor and Mer-Man to Phantos when the Lord of Destruction attempts to take control of the planet’s Photanium supply. Strong Arm is one of the top He-Man Filmation characters requested by fans to receive the figure treatment.
So we could count as the ones sprinkled throughout, But in looking at the existing trademarks, some become even more likely.
Dare, Son of Heman(1)
Madame Razz and Broom
Battle Ram Chariot
Evil Warriors Needed(7)
Space Mutants Needed(7)
Independent Needed (1)
The total amount of figures here are
Evil Warriors (1+7)=8
Mini comics (2+0)=2
bringing the total to 69
So by looking at this list a couple of them i am skeptical of being made. Despera is a brand new character/variant that although the design is really cool(wouldn't mind a figure myself) she would need to come after all the vintage stuff comes first. The Horde Troopers fall into a quarterly category since they would be a 2 pack army builder, so you could pull them out of the regular line up. Songster and the Windraider pilot were also mentioned as already under consideration by Mattel, but in light of the recent developments, these 2 seem like they will have to hit the backburner, much like Despera, till all the vintage figures get made. Also something worth noting is how they will treat the little figures(Imp, Loo-Kee, Kowl, Gwildor), will they take the same route as Orko/Prince Adam, where they will pack in a variant like Imp with Filmation Hordak, or some other form. I assume that they will all use the same body type in order to get the best use of their buck. And In regards to Rotar and Twistoid, Would these be potential for a 2-pack or separately carded. I assume they will try to use existing bucks, but One of the biggest problems with these 2 was they couldn't stand on their own. Much like King Hiss, or when Mermista comes out, will they have a swappable lower body and get a set of legs? and their gyroscope as a stand(something Shadow Weaver/Orko. The last thing I want to point out is in regards to characters like Sagitar, Modulak, and Multibot(and to a certain extent Mantenna, who has 4 legs as well) These will be considered oversized or Beast figures, Much like we saw with Ram Man, so I feel they would thrown into Quarterly Slots, Not regular monthly slots.
Now, all the characters here are here because of information that exists (Trademarks, reliably rumors,etc) So This is where I add my little Bias of who I think are "essential Characters missing from this list", and let me preface this by saying that these are only speculation, therefore all these characters will be put at the tail end of my 3-4 year plan to get all the "confirmed" characters out first, and the list has been narrowed down to what "I" feel are the essentials missing.
Master Serbian (NA)- Leader of Primus, Played Important role in whole Jetlag cartoon
Evilseed (Filmation/200x)- In both cartoons, powerful enemy and fan demanded character
King Miro (Filmation/200x)- In both Cartoons, plays important role in new mini comics, fan demanded character
Vultak (Horde)-recurring role in cartoon, fits well with character profile of the Horde, fan demanded character
Evil Robot (Horde/Evil Warrior)- Only other prototype (besides He-ro and Eldor) from vintage line not made
And Skelators robot knights(Filmation)- Long awaited, army builder for Skelator, fan demanded
So taking all that information the total will look something like this
GG (3+7)=10(+Master Sebrian)=11
Evil Warriors (1+7)=8 (+Robot Knights)=9
Horde (6+5)=11 (+Vultak+Evil Robot-Despera)=12
Mini comics (2+0)=2
200x (2+1)=3(+Evillseed+King Miro)=5
bringing the total to 74
Taking the formula used for 2013 Sub( Our best indication of what is to come for future subs) We would be getting
12 Monthly figures
1 Sub Exclusive
1 Sdcc Exclusive
1 Traveling Convention Exclusvie
4 Quarterly Items
-1 Oversized Figure ( Sagitar, Modulak, Multibot, Mantenna)
-1 Army Builder 2-pack (Horde Troopers, Robot Knights) I would hope to see one for each faction as each has a selection to choose from but POP(Brightmoon Guards), GG (Primus Troopers), and Mutants (Mutant "stormtroopers") are far less well known and demanded as well as Skelator's Skelaton Warriors and Skelacons
-1 Beast (steed of some kind, i.e, Silver Storm, Mantisaur, Battle Raptor, Clawdeen, or Battle Lion)
- 1 Variant ( Na Skelator, Terror Claw Skelator, Flying Fists He-man, Buzz Saw Hordak, Filmation Hordak)
Splitting each faction equally over 4 years would give us
Masters (4+4)=8 : 2 per year (4 to push them out)
POP (7+7)=14 : 3 per year (6 to push them out)
GG (3+7)=10(+master Sebrian)=11 : 3 per year
Evil Warriors (1+7)=8 (+Robot Knights)=9 : 2 per year ( 4 to push them out)
Horde (6+5)=11 (+Vultak+Evil Robot-Despera)=12 : 3 per year (6 to push them out)
Snakemen (1+2)=3 : 1 per year
Mutants (0+7)=7 : 2 per year
Mini comics (2+0)=2 \
200x (2+1)=3(+Evillseed+King Miro)=5 \
Independent (1+1)=2 / these factions combined = 10 , 2 per year
Dare (1+0)=1 /
So starting with the remainder of 2013
SDCC:Madame Razz and Broom
Oct: Sweet Bee + Robot Knights Army Builder
The robots have long been waiting for their chance to be made into figures and maybe they can be base could be used for both Twistoid and Rotar as well. Others hit fan demanded characters as well as fits in with the trademarks existing.

This year helps to final To start bringing in more Filmation and Fan demanded figures (Two Bad, Horde Troopers, Modulak) as well as filling out the ranks of some of the other factions that dont have much representation. Also getting Two bad allows us to to have the double head neck pegs for Modulak, who would benefit from being considered as an oversized figure to allow us to give him the 4 legs.

This year was about again filling the ranks of factions as well as introducing the movie characters into the mix. I decided to include the little characters as pack-ins, cause I find it hard to believe they will be the same price for them as regular characters.

Finally This year I managed to fit all vintage figures, albeit some being C-listers into the mix. I also added my Picks for Who Mattel has left out, and although I had to combine rotar and twistoid in a two pack I think it makes sense as they are not quite normal sized characters but not small characters either, and used them as the SDCC Exclusive so it is optional to bow out from them.
I'll take anything as long as it's a new character. No more variants.
That is a mighty chunk of text up there.
I'm digging Prahvus' list, makes the most sense to me as far as keeping it simple and containing most of the core characters I need from the different factions. Well done!
Just wanted to be as concise as possible so explain the way I came up with my schudule.
