    They do this all the time. It is how they hold onto their copyright of the name. "Use it or lose it" kinda deal.

    Yeah, makes me wonder if we might see her sooner rather than later.

    I'd love more Rock People. Meteorbs would be swell too!
    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

    I wanted to chime in on this. For Mattels side, they want to reuse as many parts as possible, so they can bank on these characters. They already have 2 different types of rock (rokkon and stondar) now if Mattel make Granita with a third type of rock face, They can resue all three of these rocks one of the other sexes (for insistence uses granitas rock for Bouldar, Stondars for Facets, Rokkon's for Pebblass). Now i know that the male clips wont fit the women, so mattel justs makes a new clip for the women. And the Granitas body can also be used for Robowomen, a defender of trolla. So once here buck is made she can be reused 3 more times, and Bouldar can reuse rokkon or stondar buck.

    So ... who thinks we'll see Granita revealed at SDCC as a release for the re-branded MOTUC line in 2016?

    I'm keeping my fingers crossed as Granita is definitely my remaining "most wanted" and I think her inclusion in the re-branded MOTUC makes sense as she's one of the higher profile Filmation characters left and she also "completes" the core trio of Rock/Comet Warriors.

    Of course, if they include "rock parts" accessories so that she can turn into a boulder like Rokkon and Stonedar, then Granita could potentially be prohibitively expensive, especially if we see another price rise in 2016.

    She needs rock pieces and almost exclusively new tooling, save a few parts. Chances to me aren't great given 2016 is a jumping off year for many. I would love to be wrong. She is pretty vital and near the top spot on almost every poll. From a cost issue, I don't know how they'll handle her.

    I think Granita has more than a fair shot for being included in 2016.
    Looking forward to the entire 2014 & 2015 line

    I just thaugh about something someone has perhaps already mentionned :

    The front rock add-on used to turn the comet warriors into rock does not fit in a standard packaging so Mattel should use a box like large items.
    I don't think they will release a standard character in such a box so Granita would come ideally with another rock people.

    (as you have understand I still hope that the packaging will stay the same perhaps with just some writting changes ...)

    Just want to give this thread a bump as we head into SDCC month. If there is any justice in the world, GRANITA will make an appearance at the mattypalooza panel!

    Granita had better make an appearance or be announced as forth coming. She is the LAST full-size female member of the Great Rebellion that appeared on the cartoon that needs to be made. For POP collectors, she's a BIG draw. We need her and the three main Twiggets and Hunga the Harpy for sure. Want POP collectors to support the line? Then let us know Granita is coming.
    PRAISE HESTIA!!!

    I agree! But, all of the Robowoman rumours are concerning.

    Why on Eternia and Etheria would Mattel think it's a good idea to release Robowoman, who had a one panel (?) appearance in a mini comic, ahead of Granita? I can only hope that Granita is planned for release and the Robowoman rumours exist solely because they plan to also release that character as a cheap repaint of Granita.

    Yeah, but at least they use the same parts, so it almost guarantees they will want to make Granita. Just, if they never do then it would be the biggest insult to all her fans.
    Be sure to read Book of Evil Part 2: The Bells of Doom, only in the He-Man.org Fan Fic & Media forums!

    This is what worries me. Having to wait is annoying, of course, but if 2016 goes through with most of the highly-demanded characters as bait (and includes RoboWoman), anything in 2017 may struggle even if Granita is offered.

    ...and if Hunga isn't included, but Dylamug and Vultak are, I'll be twice as peeved...
    Most-wanted MOTUC: Granita - Hunga the Harpy - The Melog - Melaktha - Vultak - Dylamug - Crita - Sprag, Sprocker and Spritina - the Twiggets King Ahgo
