    1987 Movie figs in MotUC?

    Does anyone, besides me, hope to see Frank Langella as Skeletor, and Dolph Lundgren as He-man the in MotUC line? I hate that movie, but for some reason I'd love to have toys from it. Even less likely, but no less awesome would be toys of Evil-lyn, Sorceress, Man-at-arms, Teela, etc. (sorry no Blade, Karg or Gwildor love from me. None for Lubic either. Blech!)

    Would these even be possible, I mean does Mattel have the rights to make toys based on those designs?

    I think they would be great figures.No matter how one feels about the movie,the look of the charachters I think were awsome,except Skeletor should not have had eye balls.They could of put some black mesh over it to try and hide them.I may be in the minority,but I still love that movie.I think they could do the designs,but not the likeness of real people,unless they paid for the rights to use them.

    I'd love to see them, I am a huge fan of the movie, despite its flaws it has such a great feel to it. However, I think id rather wait a while until new characters are done rather than varients of HM & Skelly (although theyd be the most awesome varients ever!)

    Thank you! I have never understood the Lubic cult following. I can't stand him, never could.

    I would REALLY like to see a movie Skeletor. His ceremonial type armour has always been a favorite of mine

    I don't see it coming out. I believe they have the rights but I think they intend to generally copy the original toy line as much as possible.

    I want one

    I'd buy the movie He-Man and Skeletor, even the Sorceress. Heck I would pick up Teela, Evil-Lyn, Man at Arms, Gwildor and even the design for She-Ra who never actually appeared.
    PRO CLASSIC POP TOY DESIGN ELEMENTS BEING USED IN MOTUC TO COMPLEMENT THE FILMATION DESIGNS!!!!

    I FULLY SUPPORT THE INCLUSION OF ILLUMINA IN MOTUC!!!!!

    Lubic has a cult following? Why?

    I would DEFINITELY be into any and every movie-related MOTUC-figure!

    Not sure about actor-likeness tho, might be hard to set up, and perhaps not even desirable.

    I'd go absolutely balistic with joy if we ever saw a Movie She-Ra tho! Or a Movie-Skelly! Or perhaps a Moebius-concept He-man.

    I used to not like him, then Emiliano converted me.
    You just give in to the Cult of Lubic!

    I just watched the movie again last weekend, and Lubic still is pure cult!
    I must admit though that I've begun to reall like good ol' ever-hungry Duncan there. Buddy-At-Arms, I say!

    I think I would actually love a Langella Skeletor.

    I'll also back a Lubic figure.

    I'd buy them all. I'm a big fan of the movie.

    I'd love to have:
    - Lundgren
    - Langella
    - Gwildor
    - MAA
    - Teela
    - Blade
    - Saurod
    - Beastman
    - Evil-Lyn
    - Julie
    - Kevin
    - Lubic

    Gwildor is probably at the top of my list!

    I'd take the wait and see approach. I really didn't like the movie, however, I am a completist so I'd probably buy them. Gwildor is at the top of my list of least favorite original figures along with Orko, and Snout Spout (mini statue HUGE improvement).

    I would, but not if it meant having to give up other figure slots per month.

    I would prefer something along the likes of a movie-themed boxed set. Depending on how much interest there was it could be a two pack or perhaps something grander which could include several movie-themed characters.

    Well, the 4HM did GREAT Movie Masters Batman figures.

    I'd love to see some of the He-Man '87 movie figures get this same treatment!

    I'd take He-Man, Skeletor, Man-At-Arms, Teela, Beastman, Saurad, Blade, Karg and Evil Lyn.

    I don't need a Gwildor... Really I don't.

    The movie characters are something that I've always had in the back of my mind as a perfect fit for this line. I'd buy them all. True, I think the movie is a mess but I'd jump at the chance to grab any and all movie figures. I'm buying everything MOTUC anyway. Someone mentioned the god Skeletor, I hadn't thought of that but that would be totally awesome. How about a Julie? I had a big 12 year old crush on her back in the day.

    Im hoping for the movie characters to be made. They were great. I loved the movie and the characters are good. For those that dont lime the movie try the comic that came out i guess its the adaptation. i found it a few years ago on the web. The site just lost my mind. But I got it cheap and its abit more pg-13 if I remember right.

    But a definite yes to the figures.
