They can only make figures based on toys made previously (at least at this point). Unfortunate, but true. This is covered earlier in the thread...
Those customs are fantastic, aren't they?
Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti
Man I hope that's not true. Were the 4 Horsemen premature when they left the door open for movie figures in the 2008 toyfare interview?

So are these movie figs!! And im not really a fan of the movie but Id buy these!!
Those customs are truly excellent and absolutely sick. The head sculpt on Skeletor looks straight out of the movie.
"This is true. This is real. This . . . is . . . STRAIGHT EDGE."
I'm not one who usually likes customs, but those are awesome!
We should have totally gotten those figures back in the '80's.
The Skeletor looks amazing.
It sucks that we will probably never see a Lubic action figure. He was soooo cool! At the end of the movie, he looked like he was an "Elder" wearing all those robes. If they ever make an Eternian Elder toy (not to be confused with Eldor), I hope he looks likes Lubic. Oh, and he should come with a babe too
I lve those customs. They get better each time i see them. Hurry up and start working on Lubic!

Yeah, those customs are freaking amazing! I would love to own those. It's a shame Mattel will never be able to give them to us.
I would like to see Lubic in the MOTUC line, he is absolutely Classic and that would be a really new toy!
The girl is welcome to!

I'd love to have:
- Gwildor with unproduced Cosmic Key
- Karg (another character to add to the MOTUC Universe. He is a bat-villain with a cool design)

yes it would be great if these movie skeletor designs were to be done Motuc style!!
but is there any sort legal problem preventing Mattel to do them in the Motuc line?
of course i want a saurod too
I think until we get an actual Lubic figure a head from a DCUC Lex Luthor on some sort of suited body will have to do the trick.
Gwildor: Moo? Moo.
Gwildor: I'm going, I'm going...Moo!
Since Blade, Saurod, and Gwildor have had figures, they can be released in MOTUC, right? I hope that is the case, as I would love a Saurod!
And apparently, we have to wait forever and a day, because I feel Mattel really screwed the pooch on this one! :-(
What is "satisfaction"? Oh, tying the responsible party (or parties) to a post in the middle of town and letting me flog them with a cat o' nine tails made out of RAZOR WIRE would be a good start!
(NEVER say you've seen something in an interview without posting a link! That's just impolite! :-P)
Considering that this was several years BEFORE the New Adventures line was thought up, I'm thinking that Mattel did a little recycling of ideas when they decided to send He-Man into space/the future/whatever!
I think Mattel really screwed the pooch on this one!
I don't suppose there's any chance of one of the Japanese toy companies (Medicom, perhaps?) doing an end-run around Mattel and releasing some excellent 1:6 scale/12" figures of the movie characters (especially He-Man and Skeletor) is there?
I didn't think so. :-(
P.S. Sorry for writing a BOOK, and apologies for the ranting nature of my post. I'm VERY upset with Mattel because I've been wanting a figure of Dolph Lundgren as He-Man for 22 years, and we're no closer to getting one now than we were in 1987. Mattel has thwarted the idea at every turn with the... questionable decisions they've made over the last 22 years, and it's just beyond frustrating for me.
No offense was intended to anyone, and apologies if I came off like a broken record. :-/

No evil shall escape his sight!
Oh and I too think a Sideshow Collectables 87 movie He-man and Skeletor would be flippen awesome!!
Now Mattel says they don't own the movie design rights, so this is something that at least possible.
Selected art prints now available:
Id LOVE a movie Beastman,Evil lyn and God skeletor but I think the figure I would most like is 'Crystal Sorceress' No birds head, no snakes head just an etherial Ice woman. It always bugged me that we didnt see more of her in the film. so heres hopin some day we will see them all!
Why Mattel never did a "God Skeletor" after this filmt was released is beyond me. that is my favorite incarnation of Skelly

Positive Trade with : Thehorde,
I wonder how much it would cost Mattel to secure the 1987 movie rights back from MGM. Or, at least get the rights to release action figures based on the designs. Dang, I want a figure of every one of them!
BTW: I always thought about doing a custom movie-design Castle Grayskull with an old Central Tower (Eternia playset.) I think it would work, and if Mattel could release the movie figures, it would give me more incentive to do it.
"Everything comes to he who waits."
I think I'm right here - but do correct me, everybody, where I am extremely wrong!
Warner own the movie now, while Mattel own the rights to the movie characters - it is only with Filmation originated characters (Orko, Madame Razz, Fang Man), currently owned by 'Hallmark' where a problem lies, which means the Mattel canon for He-Man, apart from the basics (Adam into He-Man, Randor being king etc) differs significantly in detail from the Filmation one.
The way I understand it is, you will see a 'Lubic' MOTUC figure before you ever see 'Orko'.
