I love seeing the love for Madame Razz and Broom. Alas, I don't see Scott making her the SDCC Exclusive this year :(
They should just do two. It's not like they wouldn't sell if they are characters people want.
Anyway, it would be AMAZING if they did the Rock People as a THREE pack with Granita. I think the 4H are a fan of her... and it would be really nice to see their version of her.
But again, I see Scott using the reaction to the FFM 3-pack as a reason not to make the SDCC exclusive a 3-pack... which isn't necessarily a good reaction... as I think a LOT more people would be willing to buy a 3 pack of the Rock Warriors... why?
1) They are legit characters that appeared in the vintage MOTU line, the mini-comics, AND the Filmation She-Ra Cartoon
2) The 4H could do wonders with the "rock" pieces necessary to give them an action feature
3) This would be a 3-pack OUTSIDE the subscription... and higher ticket items do better for SDCC anyway... Look at the Jem doll that was offered at SDCC last year: $150 and it was GONE before any other exclusive.
I am going to say that it should be the Rock Warriors as a 3pack, but it won't be...
Maybe it will be just Rokkon and Stonedar...
But Scott should slot Granita in as next year's Traveling Con Exclusive, or as an out-of-sub figure.
My guess for a while has been Modulok. He seems to fit the whole "presented in package this way for SDCC, presented in package that way for Mattycollector's on sale date..." thing they've had going on the past couple of years.

I will freak out if Rokkon's reintroduction after all these years of waiting is as a SDCC exclusive!!! That's pretty big exposure there for my all-time favorite guy :)

My guesses (hopes:skgrin:):
Filmation Hordak with Imp and as an SDCC exclusive add Hordak and Imp in rocket form as accessories.
Flying Fists He-Man and Terror Claws Skeletor 2-pack ...WITH Filmation style He-Man and Skeletor heads and Filmation power sword!
In rough order of preference:
- Bright Moon two-pack with Glimmer and Angella
- Madame Razz and Broom (with "hidden" Lookee)
- Rock People THREE-pack with Stonedar, Rokkon and Granita
- Filmation two-pack with Scorpia and Sea Hawk
- Filmation Hordak and Imp (with arm transformations for Hordak)
But, I'm not sure any of the above are very likely.
My guess is
Starchild-Bowena 2 pack.
I say Madame Razz (w/ Broom) and the Twiggits - that would be a nice big exclusive boxed set.
Another option could be Kowl with Look-ee hidden in the package similar to Orko/Adam - But I think Kowl has enough clout to be his own monthly release
The only other option in my mind aside from a mini comic character release would be a pack of Trollans.
Modulok will probably be a quarterly beast release.
Even though Vykron was an interesting idea - I hope they give us something with a little more oomph this year.
I need the Rock People.....make it so!
Loving all the suggestions. I really want all the POP little guys, Razz & Broom, Kowl, Loo-Kee and the Twiggets, stick 'em all in a big box (with Loo-Kee hidden) and I am sold!
Would also absolutely love a Filmation Hordak with Imp, he needs to have a newly sculpted head though, not a repaint of the original.
This is what I wanted last year (would've been perfect for the anniversary...) and am still waiting for.

Heck, even throw in a Filmation style head, sword and harness.
But assuming Mattel will never be cool enough for something like that :hmtung: I say they should finally give us Eldor!!
Definitely think it should be vintage MotU-focused, as opposed to anything 200x, MYP, POP, NA, etc.
My guess is that the original plan would have been to release a Dare (with Craven) figure as the SDCC exclusive and then announce an extra 6 figure mini sub (similar to the 30th mini sub) for He-Ro son of He-Man at the Mattypalooza panel. However, with sub sales down I would guess the mini sub would no longer be in the plans.
If they were to do a second exclusive I would guess Eldor.
While Razz or Kowl would be cool (both are very high on my want list) my guess is that Mattel won't choose a POP exclusive for SDCC until they are ready to celebrate She-Ra's 30th anniversary or they plan to announce a mass media project (animated series for instance) for the POP property.
I really doubt it will be Oo-Larr. The last thing the line needs is a third He-Man variant in a single year.
Madame Razz, Loo-Kee, Kowl, Twiggets, Rock People Trio, Filmation Hordak & Imp, or Modulok I will take any and all of these. PLEASE & THANK YOU!!!!!!!
A Whispering Woods boxed set with Madame Razz, Broom, Kowl, Twiggets, and Loo-Kee would be a nice companion piece to all the giant-sized stuff we've gotten. All the little figures could have limited articulation (Maybe head, waist, and shoulders only) and I'd be fine with that. Other exclusive worthy items would be Filmation Hordak w/ Imp, Mega-Beast boxed set (Modulok box for SDCC, Multi-Bot box for Matty), or Filmation He-Man/Skeletor set. SDCC still seems a bit far away so I'm more excited about the NYTF news coming soon!
i guessed modulok last year and was wrong so im not going to go for that one again ...
i honestly think it will either be a concept character or a non-vintage line MOTU character ... mattel know that they need to keep the remaining main vintage guys (two-bad, modulok, rio-blast etc etc) to try and sell a bulk of the subscriptions (at least in my view anyway) ...
im going for eldor :) ... true he has vintage connections, but like he-ro still remains essentially a concept/prototype ...
I fully agree! The Rock People 3 pack is totally legit! But I'm also afraid that they're not going to make it because of the negative reaction to the FFM pack... Making it a two pack plus a traveling con exclusive would be a bit weird... still if that's the only way to get the three of them in MOTUC, let it be so...

All the suggestions are great and particulary hordak/imp 2-packs.
Regarding the filmation he-man/skeletor 2-pack I am curious to know how they will do different than the ones they have already made to be as close as possible for the cartoon characters.
For skeletor it s not possible just to change his feet... The head sculpture should be very well made, and actually I would love to have a cartoon he-man head, but that seems impossible to me.
I'd love to see a Rock Warrior 3 pak or Modulok or some of the other suggestions here ... but for some reason my gut says a Trollan 3 or 4 pack with Dree-Elle, Uncle Montork, Yuckers maybe, then I'm not sure whom else - The Prankster and Robot?
Montork and Dree-Elle are must-haves for many of the Filmation fans but perhaps a bit too obscure and unique sized for a monthly release. If they added Razz and Broome and maybe Imp it would be AWESOME!
Gwildor (with staff, toy cosmic key, bucket of ribs)
Evilseed (similar to 2010's Plastic Man, with interchangable arms and alternative Filmation look)
Madame Razz & Broom (possibly with Kowl)
Stonedar and Rokkon 2 Pack
Doubtful it'll be Madam Razz or Filmaton Hordak. They have never done variants or 100% new tools. It's always been:
-Someone who looks like He-man (Grayskull, He-ro, Adam, Vykron)
-Someone VERYclosely associate with He-man (Marlena & Cringer, Orko)
So you're looking at someone like Oo-lar or Dare. Dare seems like the likeliest choice actually.
And don't forget that the exclusive should have an alternate way to be displayed to be sold on Matty after the Con or the possibility of selling multiples.

My hope would be any of these. Razz would require almost all new tooling, so that puts her most likely as a beast slot like Rammy, or maybe an SDCC exclusive if they splurge for the tooling. Same goes for most of the other suggestions here. The most likely, though (if any of these make the cut), seems to be the movie three pack. Only Gwildor would need all new parts, as I think a lot of existing pieces could be Frankensteined for Blade and Saurod. That makes this set a lot like Orko and Adam, where they could justify the all new tooling on Orko with the major re-use of existing parts on Adam.

That had better be a bucket of both fried chicken and ribs as canon dictates. Otherwise we'll be taken for the ass.
