    I'll definitely take the Skeletor-- both versions, Blade, Saurod, Karg, Gwildor, potentially Beast Man, and Evil Lyn. Especially Karg and Gwildor. Also some of Skeletor's troops.

    I think he's confusing Blade with Jitsu. Blade was actually a pretty decent figure. He was fun to play with and having him fight He-man. Not to mention he was the only human looking thug for Skeletor.

    Theatrical and home video rights to the 1987 Masters of the Universe film are now with Warner Brothers. It would be nice it Mattel and Warner's could work something out to make Karg, Troopers, Air Centurions, Lubic, etc...

    I'm always up for more villainy. I also back the Lubic movement. As he was just hella cool. Oh i'm on a different world with an ape man and a guy that has no flesh on his skull..... I'ma shoot at them. Got to love that i know i do.

    Myself I hope they stay far far away from any movie incarnations. Luckily for me there are a lot of hurdles in the way that'll keep these guys out:

    -Outside of Blade, Saurod & Gwildor, there are no toy versions

    -Mattel probably doesn't own the designs from the movie. They'd belong to whoever currently owns the film (Warner Bros I think?)

    -In the unlikely event that Mattel would paid Warner for the rights (never happen), they'd still have to pay the actors for their likeness rights.

    Not really. If they made He-Man and Skeletor, they would just need to put the new armor on the already made figures. The only character they'd have to worry about is Blade, and they could just change his appearance a little. It would look like him so long as he was bald and angry looking.

    It would be cool to get some of the original characters from the movie. I'd love to get He-Man and Skeletor, especially old bone face I liked Evil-lyn's design too.

    That is only if they make the toys look 100% like the characters, which I doubt they would. Plus, you wouldn't have to pay the actors who was dressed up like Skeletor, Beastman, or Karg, as their faces were hidden behind masks.

    With Mattel making DC toys, and General Zod being released from the Superman 2 movie. I don't think it's out of the realm of possibility of Mattel being able to make toys based on the movie. In fact, I think it'd probably be more likely than Filmation.. Since Mattel and WB already have a working relationship.

    Wait a sec...Why did the rights get transferred to WB? I haven't read through much of this thread so I'm sorry if I missed the reason. Didn't MGM have them? Does this change make it harder for Mattel to get the rights since presumably they've been trying to get them from MGM all along?

    I'd say that's a very different case, as Superman II was a blockbuster movie, and Zod a recognizable character even to many non-geeks.

    The MOTU movie characters are just obscure redesign/new chars from quickie movie based on a briefly popular kids toy line. (by 'briefly' I mean about 5 years compared to Superman's constant popularity for over 70 years)

    Please no Qwildor. I absolutely do not want a classics figure of him. He was really annoying even more so than Orko.

    I would love a new Saurod. For some reason I thought he was super cool in the movie as a kid and I was so upset when Skeletor electro-blasted him at the halfway point in the story.

    Well, what about those of us that want him? How about you just skip that month?

    I would love some of them. Mainly Saurod, God Skeletor, Air centurion, Skeletor, Blade, Beastman, Karg, He-man, Sorceress, Teela and Man-At-Arms. Skeletor, He-man , Teela and MAA should have the MOTUC faces but with movie costumes.

    Absolutely no Lubic, Julie or Kevin. Can you imagine Kevin's figure with a standard He-man buck body.

    Personally, I' buy only the unique figures from the movies, which means :

    1) Saurod
    2) Blade
    3) Karg (they never released him, and yes, I'd definitely buy him !)
    4) Gwildor

    Now, what is Mattel's current position about the movie characters ? I think they said that these were "not currently available" because they don't have the rights of the movie... But I believe they still have the rights over the 1980's produced toys, right (which would mean Saurod, Blade and Gwildor) ?

    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!
    It wouldn't be hard to customize a Kevin figure. Just grab a Star Trek Voyager Tom Paris figure and use his head on another body. I can't imagine how he'd fit in with MOTUC with his normal human proportions though. A muscle-bound Kevin would look just silly.

    If it was previously released I'm sure it'll get resculpted and released in Classic form. New characters may be out of the question or maybe not but I doubt Mattel will skip the chance to resculpt and release Classic versions of any figures - it's not like the MOTUC line is failing despite poor QC isssues.

    That is correct.
