    ..so no Horde Trooper singles??? Will more be shown today??

    I really liked most of the offerings but I'm a little bummed that their was no Horde Trooper singles being offered, especially since it seemed Matty was close to dropping them last year as an offering. Does anyone know if we'll see any other reveals today?

    it's rare for companies to put out more product to display after the first day at Toy Fair. It's a trade show, where the primary purpose is to work deals and build relationships with other industry professionals like retail accounts, distributors, manufacturers, etc. So the product needs to be in place early on for when industry pros visit the booth for meetings and appointments.

    I wouldn't worry too much. Super 7 eventually releasing Horde Trooper again seems like a no-brainer, it's just a matter of "when" I imagine.

    It would be nice when they do if they make them Filmation Troopers. 4H would only need to sculpt a new Filmation looking head and chest armor with the Filmation Horde Bat logo
    Excited for 2017 with Brian Flynn of Super7 & Four Horsemen taking over the MOTUC's, Club Grayskull and Hopefully Thundercats collectors lines

    I'm REALLY disappointed that Cringer wasn't there either. Matty went as far as to confirm for us last year that articulated Cringer was still in development, and he was rumored to be part of the SDCC 2016 exclusive that got scrapped. I really wish Super 7 would do Q&A sessions online so we can ask about this stuff.

    I think it would be awesome if they offered them at a less of a profit, or the same profit, but a larger production order to reduce the production cost. Either way, it'd be nice if they were offered at a more affordable army-builder price, allowing more people to pick up more, and giving them the same or larger profit in the long run.
    The power of Grayskull compels you!

    Yes! Yes yes yes yes yes. I keep saying this. I was a bit disappointed with the original troopers. I know they did the round bat 'button' as a nod to the original toy but I would much prefer a proper Horde insignia.
    And the head just didn't sit right on them at all. If they do a new chest piece it will differentiate them from the Mattel troopers.

    There are a very many of us still wanting our first, or more of, the Mattel troopers that they made "plenty" of (or however Scott called it). I understand people wanting Filmation too, but all of the replies in that lengthy HT thread argue that the originals absolutely need to be re-issued, even moreso after Mattel promised rereleases. Hopefully we can see both, and soon.

    A Filmation Horde Trooper could simply be introduced in the Club Grayskull/Filmation line as it's own thing. After all, despite the line being branded as "He-Man And The Masters Of The Universe", we are now getting Hordak as part of it.
