I wonder if the next 3-pack will be Stonedar, Rokkon, and Granita (with 1 of the meteorbs...)
Top Ten MOTUC wants: Sagitar, Great Black Wizard, Fang-or, Dragstor, Skeletor's Skeleton Warriors, Despara, Odiphus, Illumina w/Sleetah, Lady Slither, Tuvar & Baddrah 2-pack
I don't want the sculpt to suffer for the transformations but they need to look like they could become rocks. I not really need the rock or jewel forms but what else would they come with so throw them in for the fun of it.
"Don't crowd me boys!"
If Jewelstar is a preview, I think I'm worried!
Seriously, we've got a lot of Rock People that would be good to see:
- Facet (people forget her a lot, but she appear on She-Ra)
- Slime Pit mini comic red rock woman ("Rockette"?)
- Slime Pit ini comic green rock man ("Boldor"?)
The Rock People could be a whole faction like the Horde and Snake Men, but they need a lot of new members to add to their ranks and I don't know if there is support for it. We could add some of the Filmation rock guys from Eternia who didn't transform. I forget the two guys that found He-Man's sword, but they'd be cool to add to the group. Then there's Vokan of Stone City, but he looked way more humanoid.
I am hoping for a 2012 SDCC 3 pack reveal to be the rock people!
All I want is the big three Stonedar, Rokkon, and Granita!
Right now, Matty can go two ways with Stonedar and Rokkon. The one thing that is going to happen is that they are going to have to be unique sculpts. There is no way around that issue.
The way I would go is that I would make unique figures and have them look like the vintage toys like the ones looking like the Earl Norem poster.

I would make the figure articulate and not include their transforming power, but I would have the the rock pieces on the bodies work like armor and they can be removed and put together to form the "ROCK" body.
How about that idea?
We survived the long night.... MOTU Forever!
The snap-on rock armor would not only work well, it would be FAR cheaper to tool and produce than rock limbs and a rock buck. They could do the rock bodies, but they'd likely not do Granita as she'd need so much tooling and I don't see them making more than one rock lady.
They could do Granita in Filmation style with the rock "hair," which would help create the "rock form" when you snapped on the rock armor.
Go. Make them, Mattel!! Now!!!
A Want List of Sorts: Saurod, Buzz-Saw Hordak, Dragstor, Perfuma, Dare, Point Dread & The Talon Fighter, Prahvus, Veena, King Chooblah, Flying Fists He-Man, Terror Claws Skeletor, Snake Mountain, Filmation Variants, Roton, and all the other POP & NA characters.
also from memory (I havent seen the Rock men for years) but Rokkon may be able to utilise Icarius's torso etc.
That Norem poster is absolutely epic. Rokkon looks totally bad-ass in that pose. Here's hoping the FH give him that style of laser pistol. Been wanting an up-do of this figure for over a decade now. Do. The. Rock. People. NOW
Now that Granita is a genuine possibility, I'm hoping even harder these get made. They were never my absolute favorites of the line, but getting the female figure we never had back then would definitely raise their standing a good bit with me.

That Norem poster makes me want the rock people even more now!
