    When will the next hype-fix arrive?

    So, when will we get something new to drool upon next time? There were talks about Skelly and Stratos being shown in the next ToyFare - when is that coming out.

    Seriously in need of a fix

    (<= Skeletor enjoys the torment of all the addicted MOTU-fans)

    ToyFare hits comic shops August 13th. Then some time after that, Val said he would be posting Stratos.

    I too am fiending for more more more.

    I'd be happy with a clear shot of Mer-Man's second head to tide me over.

    Im still riding high off the huge SDCC fix we got last week!!

    Then ive got my King Grayskull on his way, thats sure to be a huge fix. Then we've got MYP volume 3 coming out, and shortly after that we get Skelly and then Stratos pics. Before you know it, it will be October 31st

    I never thought these days would come again after 200X, but im so glad I was wrong. Life is great for a MOTU fan at the moment!

    I'm very excited about ToyFare revealing Skeletor, then He-Man.org revealing Stratos, then some other figure from ToyFare again, and in return Org the next.

    Need to start buying ToyFares....

    For a fix, there is a interview with Toy Guru at Fwoosh. Check that out.

    I find strange to show the figures before the month they will be released.

    Ok MOTU line has just been launch so it's normal to see the first figures now, but I hope that in the future the new figures will only be shown for the first time the day they can be purchased.

    I want to have the surprise each month.

    What we now seems to me enough.
    I would prefer not seeing any new figures before the release date.

    Don't know what the strategy is, but I think we might be able to get glimpse of new character 2-4 weeks before their release date. I find it a good hype to buy a figure on 15th and hopefully soon from that, learn what the next figure is going to be.

    But we'll have to see how the hype is handled.

    This really is great time for us fans. This really has been the best SDCC ever. I mean with all the hype and surprises it was great. I'm always on the ORG alot around this time but this year I can't get off here. There's just so much good news and pics and everything else to go with it.

    These are good times.

    This is gonna be one of the problems with this line. Waiting to see and/or get figures is going to be killer. It's also going to allow people to go over these things with a fine toothed comb beforehand and over analyze everything.

    I just want some real King Grayskull reviews already!

    I understand what you're saying, but you'll likely buy each figure no matter what like the rest of us, so what each looks like doesn't matter as much.

    But releasing the images early allows hype to build and word to spread, thus bringing attention to the line. The images will circulate and likely reach more people. Plus, if the figures quickly sell out or are going to quickly sell out, it gives people notice that the figure will be on sale and that they should act.

    This is a collectors line, but ideally it would turn into a really popular collectors line that all want to own (not just MOTU fans).

    Yeah I'm wondering what Skelly will look like as well. I mean, sure the figure will be inspired by the old card art, but I'm sure there will be subtle differences just as with what's been shown.

    Evil-Lyn

    I ofcourse can't wait until its time for them to do Evil-Lyn. I hope she looks like her filmation design, with the black cape. I have wanted a version of her like that now forever. I can't wait to see how she will look.

    Sadly, I think they have to stay away from the Filmation design. This is one case were I hope they do make slight exceptions. A black cape and black helmet would be great, but keep her yellow!

    Well lets just hope she comes with her own cape this time. I noticed King Greyskull got his own cape, so she should come with one aswell.

    I always liked this picture. Now that I really look at it her legs are not drawn very well. Where does that 2nd foot come from? Where is her, uh, butt? Can you cuss on these forums?

    Sometimes Toyfare comes earlier to those who subscribe. I wish I still did...but if someone on here does perhaps they can confirm once the issue arrives.
