    I am just not excited by these ... they seem somehow lackluster compared to the versions we actually got.

    In particular, I think the Sorceress / Green Goddess looks ridiculous in a green suit with...

    I'm not necessarily trying for a Classics version of him, although the first version is pretty similar to his MotUC figure; ultimately I found I was going for a sort of hybrid look for Dactys. In...

    There's something about this that I really like ... maybe it's the more "armored-up" look, maybe it's the DC New 52 influence, I don't know, but this speaks to me.

    I can see that, but the red-and-blue seems like a combo we've seen a lot on your characters (Wolfsfang, Rodantus), so to me it feels a little like a "default" despite how appropriate it might be for...

    I like the brown, but the red and blue isn't working for me (personally). I do tend to go more monochromatic anyway, so that could just be my own taste.

    The overall design, however, is definitely...

    Those are fair points.

    I'm glad to hear you confirm that Stratos' death wasn't certain; that description of the Avions going into battle made me want more, and it just wouldn't be the same...

    I really enjoy this.

    The only thing I'm not a huge fan of is Catra's appearance. It feels off, somehow, to have a single Horde member in the film when another of Skeletor's minions could have...

    So you're saying maybe make the Traitor's Mark smaller and move it up onto his forehead? I kind of like it coming up from his eyes, but I think if I decide to use both then you're probably right and...

    Good to see the original intent behind the question.

    Stratos is not my absolute favorite, but he's one of my favorites, so I had to answer "no."

    That being said, I'd put him in my top five...

    Those are really great; reminiscent of the 200x-era figures in proportion (and, obviously, design) but still very much their own thing. I like 'em a lot.

    She's more Filmation than I would have wanted (but not more than I expected), but I'm glad they seem to be including the halo and adding some vintage detail.

    Fingers crossed 2015 goes through!

    If I can only pick one, I'm going with Lizard Man (I'm assuming he's far enough along that they'll release him even if the sub, however unlikely that is, doesn't go through for 2015).

    If we got a Filmation sub (again), I wouldn't want Flimation variants of existing characters. I'd rather see a lineup more like this:

    Thanks - I think the blue version ties him more to Azrog's look, but the warmer version is more 200x and seems to be more popular in general so far, so I think that might be the direction I lean in...

    The dark tone is fitting for the situation, in my opinion, and it's nice to see Skeletor portrayed as an actual threat.
