    12'' Vintage-styled MOTU Giants (He-man, Skeletor, Beast Man and Stratos)

    I thought it was worth starting a thread of it's own for this.

    They showed an unpainted proto of a vintage-style 12'' Skeletor.
    The idea behind this is to gauge fan interest. If people like it, they'd release them like Gentle Giant's large scale vintage Star Wars line, complete on over-sized vintage-style card backs.
    They would be the original 8-backs only, and no less than $70 each.
    Solid plastic (not roto-cast) with the pull back and punch feature.

    Would people be into this?

    I MIGHT get Skeletor and He-man, but I'm not sure much beyond that.

    I've no interest, other than seeing this, plus the PoP sub, and realizing that MOTU as a brand isn't in any danger at all. Bring on the rest of 2014 and 2015!

    PoP Variants are part of the vintage line, too! Starburst She-Ra, Shower Power Catra, and Scratchin' Sound Catra for 2015!!!

    If they are going to do a 12 line, make them ultra high quality like Side Show or Hot Toys.

    Cool idea, but it's the price they have to sell me on. If it's too expensive, I'm passing. If the price is right, sure, I'm in.

    I already buy the Star Wars figures. They are beyond amazing. I would be in all for these...but I sob at what the effect would be on my wallet and space issue.

    Sadly, I have no interest in non vintage scale vintage figures. I would much rater get figures we never got than to start over again.

    I would be in for these! They look really cool, and this would be a MOC collection for me. A great complement to the MOTUC...

    No interest. Finish up MOTUC. IF these are like SW Gentle Giant, which they appear to be, they will be at least $80 each, probably more.

    I'm certainly interested in He-Man and Skeletor, if they are in an affordable price range.

    Nope! No interest in this.
    FINALLY!! GLIMMER IS IN MY SHELF!! Now I need a Crita!! Crita is to Mara what Evil Lyn is to Teela. If we ARE getting Mara, then we NEED Crita.

    Under $50 I would buy them for sure. Over, forget it.

    But that Skeletor does look pretty awesome. I would much rather see them in regular scale and offer characters that were never made in the vintage style that we've gotten in Classics.

    As long as they release just one or so every quarter and no guarantee of how many (no Sub!), then I could see snagging 1 or 2.

    But they'd have to give Skeletor here the correct arms!
    Take it easy,
    Drew

    Looking for: deals on MOTUC Roboto, King He-Man, Meckaneck, Zoar (from Sorceress) and more!
    Have to trade: A couple MOTU vintage, GIJOE (vintage 3.75 inch and 25th Anniversary figures and vehicles), Star Wars, Transformers (movie line), and Marvel Universe and a few Marvel Legends, plus MORE!.

    Very Interested, though size and price would probably stop me from buying everyone they released (and pretty much any variant) but by god would I love a 12" Skeletor, and He-Man, and any of the Horde, and Buzz-Off, and Man-At-Arms, and Trap-Jaw and, and, and...

    I too would also support vintage style versions of characters we never had in the original scale, especially He-Ro and Eldor as they would have been and vintage versions of NA characters - and Marlena, lots of Marlena love please.

    Probably a pass from me unless POP was included too. I would love giant-sized Star Sisters based on the prototypes.

    Oh geez, please don't make these. I have very little will-power to resist and my wallet is freaking out!
    Congratulations! MOTUC 2015!

    12'' seems huge! They'd be expensive. I'd love to have them but tough to afford with 2 Club Eternia subs & 1 Club Etheria sub. Plus icon hero stuff.
