    I think all the tooling info is also a real eye-opener about time and expense, especially for all the people who seem to think that Classics isn't expensive to produce.

    I love the idea of a cool Mythic Legions Treasure chest, and castles! Even a section of a castle would be awesome. Like and old crumbling ruin and a section of stairs with stone debris laying all around...

    Also...where do I download Roast Gooble uncensored? Mine had too many bleeps in the Power Con exclusive segment!
    We need to let our new friends at Super 7 know that many of us are ALL IN COLLECTORS. We don't want products that are impossible for the average collector to have access to! If there is a He-man product, I want to buy it. Please no chases or con-only exclusives.

    Make your voice heard! We DO want Snake Mountain!

    Wow, this was very interesting! I'm sorry to hear there are still people saying (maddeningly) that they won't collect female figures. I wonder if that was part of why we never saw a release of the Vampire Lady and related variants or if there were other issues that prevented those figures from getting a kickstarter? That Kickstarter saved the Four Horsemen is very alarming too, I didn't realize that was how bad off the action figure industry really was. But I'm sorry so many of the FANtastic sketches never got released, particularly the ones like the Vampire Lady who seemed to be close. Not that I don't like what we *are* getting, just wondering since I had thought she might be among the Mythic Legion vampires until I saw the very different (though still awesome) Lucretia.

    I think it would have been super funny (and a bit awkward) if Val had forgotten to censor said bits in the PowerCon segment!
    That's definitely something that could have happened to me because I get easily distracted
    Awesome sticker included!

    I almost didn't censor them for almost that same reason!

    It dawned on me when he said the second name. Then I was like "oh crap!" and had to back up and bleep the names.

    With all the bleeps, it almost sounded to me like there were 4 Exclusives this year. Of course, can't really tell who anyone was talking about, and if they were talking about the same or different figures, but there were an awful lot of bleeps!!

    Based on what I've seen in confidence, I definitely agree with Eric about that.

    For that to be true, at least one of either Dylamug, Hunga the Harpy or Granita must be in wave 2... maybe one of those 3 were moved from wave 1 due to the She-Ra licensing issue and replaced with Hawke or maybe Super7 is waiting to get the first wave sold in before attempting any completely new tooled figures in wave 2?
    At this point I just HOPE for Dylamug and Hunga the Harpy!

    I don't know if Super 7 will be able to make POP characters in the next few waves but this statement from the 4H is bringing hope to She-ravers!

    I doubt that we'll see so many characters requiring new tooling though. By the way, if Super 7 follows the same patterns from Wave 1, they'll probably try to mix various eras or factions.

    I 'm guessing we could see something like this:

    - Granita (POP / Filmation)
    - King Miro (Heroic / 200x)
    - Dylamug or Hunga (Horde / Filmation)
    - Kayo (NA / GG)

    There are a few characters whom I would not expect so soon after wave 1:
    - Lady Slither as she requires extra tooling and we're already getting a Snake Man with Fangor (who also happens to be a new mini comic character).
    - 200x Sorceress (I don't know why but I would rather expect a Filmation Sorceress in the next two Club Grayskull waves)
    - Illumina (isn't she stuck in a legal limbo, kind of like Karg?)
    - Kittrina (we're already getting 2 Filmation heroic ladies with Hawke/Delora)
    10 Most needed items for MOTUC...

    Heroic: King Miro / Prince Dakon
    Evil: Skeleteen
    POP: King Micah / Twiggets 3 pack
    Horde: Hunga the Harpy
    POG: Oracle
    Rock People: Granita
    NA: Sebrian / Sagitar

    Super7 has done a great job of offering a wide range of characters with these first 4 figures. It would seem that they are looking at the top requests per "faction", rather than just the top ten of the poll.

    If you take out the characters that still seem "in the air" (variants, PoP characters, 2-packs, concept characters, and Illumina), then you end up with 8 figures; which is exactly what Super7 is going to offer in 2017.

    Prior to the reveals, I said that this would be those top characters, per faction...

    King Miro (200X)
    Hawke/Delora
    Kittrina
    Lodar
    Lady Slither
    Fang-Or
    Quakke
    Lizorr


    From that list, FOUR were accurate and filled up the first wave. If this is what they looked at to select characters, then there is a strong possibility that the next 4 characters will be Lady Slither, King Miro, Kittrina, and Lizorr.

    HOWEVER, if they are able to get the rights to Princess of Power, or PoP Filmation characters, then I think it will be Dylamug, Granita, King Miro, and Lizorr. Maybe even Horde Mummy instead of Lizorr, just to really mix things up.

    That makes a lot of sense, but would they want to burn through 2 of the most demanded characters in one wave? Possibly I guess since this isn't Mattel we are talking about and it's in Super7s interest to sell as many figures as possibly from the start.

    I hope they sort the rights out as a POP Filmation character should be in wave 2, since we are already getting MOTU Filmation in Wave 1.
    At this point I just HOPE for Dylamug and Hunga the Harpy!

    That was very interesting.

    One question I've always wanted to know the answer to is this:

    Is it more expensive to produce a figure that is a straight repaint (for example, Ultimate Ram Man), or does a mix-and-matched character cost more, despite having no new tooling or paint ops? My guess is that a figure like Ultimate Skeletor would be pricier due to having to combine parts from mold A (Skeletor) with the arms and legs from mold B (Kobra Khan), etc.

    Woulnt it be great to see a documentary on the "life of a figure"... that is... a behind the scenes look at every stage of production from initial creative discussion to visual conception to sculpt to prototyping... changing... final approval then a behind the scenes look at what happens at the factory.. to final product and packaging design.... and all the steps in between i have no idea about. It could be based on just one figure... like ultimate mer-man or something. That would be pretty cool... and would probably make people feel much better about parting with their 30 bucks.
