I'm hoping it's Madame Razz and Broom, with a packed in Kowl. SDCC can be the Filmation color, since Comic Con usual gets the more popular option, and the vintage toy colors on Matty after the con.
After King Grayskull, He-ro, Orko/Adam, and Marlena/Cringer I am hoping they follow that same line with this year's SDCC exclusive. Vykron was disappointing and wasted a valuable spot that could have gone towards a more fan-demanded character. Although I'm sure they would have done things differently if they knew how far the subscriptions sales were going to drop for 2013.
I thought strobo was the convention exclusive? Is there a separate sdcc exclusive?
Eldor should have been out by now. he is over due for a figure in the line. besides we need a POG figure this year.
What about Queen Teela, or Teela as the Sorceress with a removable head dress? or extra Teela head?
i have no interest in madame razz.
a passing interest in rock people
modulok would be pretty cool
i was not excited for vykron but got him on black friday and i ended up really liking the figure.
and since the line is hanging by a thread id buy anything except for madame razz
The main audience for the SDCC figure is crazed collectors who buy anything moderately popular just because it is an exclusive. So Mattel has to strike that balance of "not too important a character" and "obviously from the He-man brand" to draw those people in. I say "He-man" brand rather than MOTU cuz to the average Joe they will remember He-man over MOTU.
I would love to see any of the following as a SDCC, maybe even more than one in a year:
Rock Warrior 3-pack (this has to include Granita)
Movie Trio (Blade/Gwildor/Saurod)
New Adventures (Darius/Mara/NA Skeletor)
Slime Pit w/ Slime He-Man
Catra Variant Pak w/ Panther Form
Masks of Power Demons
PoP (Sweet Bee/Perfuma/Flutterina)
Castle Grayskull Robot
They'd be missing a massive opportunity if they focus only on the male Rock People. Personally, I find them way too similar to be exciting, despite being vintage figures. Without Granita, I just wouldn't be interested...
I agree that a three-pack would be a massive WIN - vintage fans would find the money, Filmation and POP fans would find the money and everyone would be stoked. Three-packs with the right characters - like this selection - would have no problem selling.
I too want Filmation Hordak for SDCC, standard Hordak using, Hurricaine H's Arm cannon. plus pack ins of some of his transformations - the rocket, the 3 handed spinning thing (as seen recently in the PoG comic) plus others - oh and Imp! $45 done
For SDCC 2013 i have two Figures in Focus.
1.Madam Razz with Broom (like Emilianos Draf with Flying holder)
2.Filmation Hordak with IMP.
Two Figures i really want as soon as possible.
I think a SDCC Exclusive Madame Razz would receive the most backlash this line has seen to date.

Ideally there would be more than one exclusive, something that will appease vintage fans that couldn't come in a general monthly slot (multipack (movie figs) or offsized character like Modulok) and something else like Razz or the mini figures (Kowl, Lookee, Imp)
I would like to see to Egypcian Green Sorceress and the King Grayskull's Green Lion as two pack.
They would be perfect to complement my SDCC King Grayskull he,he,he :hmroll:
I'd guess Eldor as SDCC exclusive but would love a Slime Pit He-Man.
I really hope Mattel leave no stone unturned at SDCC 2013. The second half of 2013 and in particular early 2014 must contain the most wanted characters if we're to stand a chance of the line going ahead in 2014. Here's hoping!
Oh, nearly forgot... 2013 SDCC speculation. Too early to say, i'll wait till after NYTF!
