Also, if you're talking about a 200x figure like SA He-Man, that will require enough new parts that a new character like Stinkor or Jitsu or Randor could be made.
And sorry, but I can't prioritize a variant over a new character.
At this point, someone like Zodak could be made relatively easily (new head, staff, new loincloth) so I'd be all for "easy" figures like that.
Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't Mattel recently mention something about possibly releasing two figures a month? It would be cool if they released an MOTU figure then a POP, NA, or 200X character as the second figure. Everyone wins!

The a character out there called the Black Lama!!
Selected art prints now available:
forgive me for not understanding a word you just said.
but she was never in any of the fiction.
capitalzero: wants everything that the "Vintage fans" are getting but in a 2002 style.
King Grayskull: an MYP character and not a "Vintage" one. He has had 3 toys released already; Regular, Statue variant, and Spirit Of Grayskull variant.
"Vintage Fans": have not complained(at least none that I have seen) that the only toy in the Masters Of The Universe Classics line to have received 2 variants is an MYP character and not a "Vintage" one.
THUS 2002 fans have received something that "Vintage fans" haven't so far.
And Vintage fans have recieved far more than that in terms of characters, releases, promises, etc.
so it more than tips the scale.
Personally, I'm not a fan of Hordak's armor since I don't care about articulation, but it wasn't so bad that it made me re-think collecting the MOTUC line. It just goes to show that a lot of people don't always put their money where their mouth is.
People might ***** and complain online, but will be among the first to support the very thing that they are complaining about. Their online personas might make you THINK they would never support the line, but in reality they are the ones who are the fastest supporters.
In my defense, I came around eventually.
I'm still not 100% satisfied, but with a promise of things to come, I soon very well could be.
I'm not understanding this arguement very well. Personally, I loved the "re-vision" of the 200x series but that's all it was people... a "re-vision" of the old. Zodak is Zodac regardless of skin color and name spelling. It's like the Kingpin in the Daredevil movie. He was black. That doesn't make him a different Kingpin than the caucasian blob of a man in Marvel's paper pages. He-Man is He-Man... whether he's in a loincloth or Snake Armor or blue pants. Fans of 200x have to love that they have He-Man, even if he doesn't have anime hair.
So yeah, I wanna see some more designs from the 200x re-vision make their way into the MOTUC line but at the end of the day... for the most part... we're talking about wardrobe and make-up people. Wardrobe and make-up.
Mattel using the 200X storylines for all the other characters but Zodac might be evidence that a 200X Zodak might be coming eventually.
It's like comparing Spider-Man 2099 (Miguel O'Hara) with normal 616 Spider-Man (Peter Parker). Both are basically supposed to be Spider-Man, but are two entirely different characters.
MGM: it's not that they don't understand, IMO, it's that they want things THEIR WAY only, and won't accept an alternative viewpoint, especially when it removes them from their comfort zone.
admittedly, I'm the same way a lot of times, but the way I see it, I have to be this way, I'm only fighting fire with fire.
there is hope, however, as many people are willing to look at alternative POVs when presented respectfully.
which is why you're the pillow to my rock.

ain't many 'easy' regular figures left. We're moving rapidly into 'unique sculpt' territory.
