    If we did get 200X versions of MOTUC, where do we start?

    Say, if Mattel reveals that they are re-doing 200X characters in the MOTU style, without the anime influences, where should they start from first?

    Start at the beginning, like the original line is doing?
    Articulating the Stactions?
    Start from the end (200X He-ro) and work toward the beginning?
    Some old 200X characters and some new 200X characters?

    If they would use characteristics from the 200x line in the MOTUC style I'd be very happy. King Grayskull is the perfect example imo. Merman looks like he'd fir in too btw.

    Therefore I'd say just do the characters that didn't have a proper 200x version like Mossman or Spikor.

    Agreed Neo. The characters that didn't see a release is where it should be.

    And those characters that are entirely new, like Faceless One, Dekker and Hawk.

    A Teela-Na wouldn't be shabby either. ^^

    Oops, that one vote was me. I just really want to see He-ro, i saw his name and got excited.

    But yeah, he could just be first in line w/ the never produced guys, that'd be perfect-o! And then Spikor, his design was sweetness.

    You just had to mention Dekker! that guy is awesome!

    Start with He-ro, to appease the old school guys but then we could get a decent King Hiss to fight him Followed shortly by a 200X articulated Hordak

    No brainer for me...articulate the stactions first. If I buy the MotUC figures, I want to be able to play with them with my kids. You cant play with stactions. Sooo...I so want a Hordak, Stinkor, and the rest from the 2002 line that were not released as action figures yet. The ones that weren't done as statctions yet are your lesser-tier characters so I really dont care about them. I am so jonesing for a 2002 Hordak action figure, you have no idea.

    I would like to see a MOTUC She-Ra that is more influanced from the 2004 exclusive She-Ra design. Specificaly that version of the cloche, tiara, skirt and chest plate. I quite like the classic boots and arm gauntlet designs.
    PRO CLASSIC POP TOY DESIGN ELEMENTS BEING USED IN MOTUC TO COMPLEMENT THE FILMATION DESIGNS!!!!

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

    IF YOUR SICK OF WAITING FOR A LIGHT TO APPEAR AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL, STRIDE DOWN THERE AND LIGHT THE BLOODY THING YOURSELF!!!!!!!

    since I only buy action figures, the line ended for me after the Snake Men.

    I never got the Horde.

    I want them.

    I didn't collect the Stactions because I always felt those should be action figures.

    I do not collect statues, those characters simply MUST be done first.

    They should do characters that were never figures or stactions.

    I can only speak for myself when I say, getting something not made last time or never made before is something I look forward to more so than getting more of the same characters that are sitting right here starring at me…especially Mantenna…he just won't stop giving me the stink-eye! Plus, with characters like the Horde, they require more unique sculpts. That reason alone has got me convinced that we won't see any of them any time soon. Hordak MIGHT be the exception. The Snake Men have the same issue. I'm fine with the wait and see approach Mattel is taking. Let sales prove the line is worth investing more money in, this way we get great sculpts that will satisfy everyone.

    I don't consider the Stactions to be figures.

    and therefore I want them.

    as for letting sales prove that the line is worth investing in, that's fine, so long as they don't build-in sabotage tactics like the Yellow Belt on Stratos.

    because they'll blame US if we don't buy their mistake, and I'm not gonna shoulder any blame for not buying a POS figure. I'll buy a figure worth owning, which is why I bought He-Man. but if the figure is crap (like that packaged Stratos), there's no way in hell I'm wasting my money on it.


    really, the only figures from 200X that I MUST HAVE are:

    Hordak, Skeletor, Keldor, He-Man, Marzo, Evilseed, and the Faceless One.

    if others get made, so much the better, but I ain't gonna be too upset if we don't get Moss Man, Faker, Stinkor, etc.

    "Work on characters who were never figures or stactions" - how else would a 2Kx-Fan get to complete his collection as far as characters are concerned?

    One of my biggest regrets about the 200X/Staction line was never getting to see that amazing Scareglow...

    Also, I would kill for a Shadow Weaver in the 200X style like the one Emiliano designed.

    I voted for starting with characters that didn't make the staction line, just to get the last few big ones out, like Scareglow, Spikor, and Modulok, Then mix and match with unreleased/staction characters.

    Necrothreading like this is so disconcerting because the original question is so out of date it is no longer relevant. 200x has been lovingly merged into the classics line in a number of ways, and recklessly abandoned in others. We're getting new characters from the show as classics figures, and elements from the 4horsemen sculpts incorporated into the classic versions of the main characters where applicable. The only thing we won't get are the individualized armor and differently styled heads, much to my chagrin.

    Still, question answered in the fullness of time.
    My 2016 Wishlist:

    2.0s: HE-MAN, Teela
    Filmation: KITTRINA, Vultak, Dylamug
    200x: VEENA, Prahvus
    NA: CRITA, Staghorn, Quakke, Butthead
    Concept: RED BEAST, Tony Guerrero He-Man

    I think releasing a 200x Teela is a good way to get her out again for fans.

    If Mattel reveals that they are re-doing 200X characters in the MOTU style it will be my chance to re-sub, but they have to be flawless! I don't like how the motuc line currently is going!
