    Like other there so many figures they can put the tooling dollars to the I would prove that happening. Espically after the scare we just had.

    Gigantisaur is probably THE concept figure that "never made it until now" that I'd like to get the most !

    Unfortunately, we probably won't get many vehicles in MOTUC, let alone playsets. Heck, even Castle Grayskull is not sure to be made...

    Mattel's total lack of faith and ambition for MOTUC is a real sad thing to behold.

    If a gigantic item like Gigantisaur was made into a MOTUC beast, it would certainly be the crown jewel of my collection ! The same goes for the Eternia playset.

    I'd like for us to get ALL the Preternian dinosaurs : Gigantisaur, Tyrantisaurus Rex, Bionatops, Turbodactyl + Battle Raptor (MYP cartoon) and maybe Battle Bones.

    Preternia is the PREHISTORIC Eternia, and prehistory without dinosaurs is an absurd thing. We have Tytus and Megator, we have He-Ro, we have King Grayskull, we even have Preternia Disguise He-Man... I say now bring on Eldor and the preternian dinosaurs !

    The reason we didn't get any dinosaurs yet (or Monstroid or Mantisaur, for that matter) is because those beasts use a lot of tooling, and that Mattel made it compulsory to reuse any tooling. Once again, it comes down to Mattel's mistrust and lack of faith in MOTUC, and also to their stinginess. I don't think we'll be able to change that, but I still keep the dream that someday we might get some of these items in MOTUC. Who knows ? After all, all it could take would be a change in Mattel's management, and the presence of someone who really likes toys (unlike the current directors and CEO, who come mainly from the food sector and from the oil industry) and who would feel the nostalgia and remember the initial grandeur of the Masters of the Universe franchise...

    Prahvus, well said, heres to hoping. I am actually surprised Bionatops hasnt been made yet, I dont think he would be much bigger or more expensive the cats. Plus with Preternian He-man not having his ride, I think this one might be on tap sooner than later.

    At this point with so many characters left to be made with such a limited budget, I'd be surprised to see Bionatops. That said, Gigantisaur ain't going to happen.


    I do have hope we'll see the Battle Ram since the 4H have already made the protoype, but even that is a longshot.

    IF this was made, I would guess it would be a bit smaller than the proto, since Mattel don't like making "one shots" (as mentioned in many Windraider Q&A's) they'd likely use Granymars body, and possible his thighs, add new arms, feet, tail and head/neck (see the last pic posted where gigantisaur has reared up on it's hind legs, there's some similarity I think
    If there's something strange in the neighbourhood, who you gonna' call? HE-MAN!!!!

    Reguardless of what I would like to be made or what any one else also would or would not like to be made into MOTUC, the fact is as long as the lines popularity stays where it is or lesson's, we all probably won't get all that is wanted! The thing with MATTEL is they nare not laying alot of money out for this if it is'nt farely populair it needs to be put out there more in news, internet, any means possible! Mattel has a site for the sales but no real advertisement! I recently stumbled upon the line by peering into the org I started telling others I know that like the masters and now they to are getting into it, and I make sure that they pass that on and on so as to gain some momentum! But truth be told if this line doesnt pick up there is no chance for my GIGANTISUAR that was mentioned and talked about when the other 3 dino's came out! I would love for it to happen as with all other dinos and my never made up-scaler, Rattlor Trap and so on and so forth! We have the power to make this greater than ever before we need to stand proud and tall for our line and make it known every where! we almost lost it I do not want to ever feel like that again!
