    Classics 2.0 is now called Club Grayskull: same figures, same benefits, new name

    This has been mentioned in a couple other threads today, but it's deserving of it's own thread.

    From the MattyCollector news:

    MOTU Classics, New Adventures, Giants, Minis… we love ‘em all. But when we saw how awesome the six new Filmation-style figures turned out, we felt like kids on Christmas morning!

    These new figures took us right back to where it started for many of us… the animated ‘80s series! There’s He-Man posing with the Power Sword, ready to take on arch-nemesis Skeletor. (“I have the power!”) But watch out for Beast Man and Trap Jaw! It’s a battle for Eternia and the fate of Castle Grayskull hangs in the balance…

    And that’s when it hit us. This series cries out for a name worthy of the legend. And so we bring you… Club Grayskull!

    The best part? If you’re a subscriber to Classics 2.0 you don’t have to do a single thing. You’ll get all six figures you’ve already signed up for, the club-exclusive Evil Seed, and all the benefits of your subscription. You’re already in!

    Not a subscriber? No problem. Join us for our All-Access sales around the 15th of each month for a chance to score these bi-monthly figures. (Sorry, the club-exclusive Evil Seed figure only ships to subscribers!):
    He-Man (2/16)
    Trap Jaw (4/16)
    Skeletor (6/16)
    Evil Seed (Subscription-only figure, 8/16)
    Beast Man (8/16)
    Evil-Lyn (10/16)
    Clawful (12/16)

    Third time is a charm I guess.

    1) HMATMOTU
    2) Classics 2.0
    3) Club Grayskull

    People are freaking out about He-Man pictures (ankles, etc.) and not a word to tell us if they are representatives of the actual figure, but they... change the name. Riiight.

    I thought New Adventures was part of MOTUC. Are we getting another sub, Is something being teased?

    I also find it odd too... other factions are Filmation, POP and 200x which all got mini subs and they aren't listed. MOTU Classics = Collector's Choice, so maybe New Adventures will indeed be a 3rd MOTU subscription?

    Toy Guru made that NA mini sub "Joke" in the NYTF reveals thread, that I thought was him stealing Matty's Thunder about an unannounced NA mini sub. It now sounds like that is even more likely after this. I bet this is an indication something NA is coming....Mini Sub, SDCC pack, or something NA. If not.....it's another coincidence.

    Better name for sure, here's to hoping digital river doesn't find a way to use this to mess something up. I am kidding, I really hope I am kidding.

    I know they already used Club Filmation a few years back, buuuut... I kinda feel like they should just call this particular sub... Club Filmation.
    Club Grayskull isn't bad, but it's a Filmation He-Man sub. It is still a better name and less misleading than Classics 2.0, considering these aren't Classics-level detailing or sculpting and are more smooth animation styled figures.

    Not that I think this "name" stuff makes a real difference, but I just wanted to say I think "Grayskull" is a poor choice for a name for this line.

    To me, the most important thing about a name is a to have a reference point to discuss it.

    "Filmation" = GREAT... "HM&TMOTU" = GOOD (appropriate enough, in that its the name of the show).... "Grayskull" = POOR (vague, a word that relates to a castle that spans many canons) If anything, the name feels like it could apply more to 200x-oriented figures, as that's where the KING Grayskull character was popularized.

    No biggie, but it sucks that the name isn't helpful in using the name itself on a casual basis.

    THANK YOU!

    I thought I was the only one! Shouldn't a subscription to a line of figures based on their Filmation counterparts be named Filmation???
    Masters of the Universe and ThunderCats - together for the first time! Pure AWESOME!

    **Staunch FILMation lover!!! **** MUST have a New Adventures Subscription!!!**
    MOTUC NEEDS more TROLLANS !!!

    Club Filmation would have worked for me. Club Grayskull sounds like something that should be reserved for heroic warriors.

    Club Grayskull Doesn't Sound Nice To This Line !

    How About :-

    Club Filmation Legends ?

    Club Filmation Icons ?

    Club Filmation Warriors ?

    Club Filmation Masters ?

    Club Grayskull is a much better name than 2.0 IMO.

    Well something evidently pushed the ThunderCats figures off schedule and if this was pre-planned before ThunderCats (maybe before Scott Neitlich left) it could be possible. I mean the other two 2016 lines were pre-planned during Scott's time afterall.

    Well, whatever the case, since MOTUC doesn't exist anymore in the context of "new releases", new branding for any of MOTUC's sub-genres is not only possible----it's necessary.

    Sweet, I'm getting Mumm-ra with my Grayskull sub!

    Classics 2.0 is now Club Grayskull!

    "When we saw these newly-designed He-Man and Masters of the Universe® figures, we were super stoked and wanted the name to reflect how awesome they are. And so it’s no longer called “Classics 2.0.” We now bring you… Club Grayskull!

    If you’re a subscriber, you don’t have to do a thing. You’ll automatically get all six new Filmation-style figures you signed up for, plus the club-exclusive Mumm-Ra™!"

    Not even kidding, that's what mine says...
