    How many people here are completist in the MOTUC line? Non-completists?

    Well I was reading a few threads here and it says that some figures dont appeal to certain collectors. And some people aren't buying this figure cuz hes 200X. Im just curious because this info may help to see how fast certain figures will sell out quickly. The Green Goddess not everyone may buy cause there not into the mini comics. I dont know why anyone wouldn't want her. But thats to each there own. Then BA He-man some may be happy with only the othe rHe-man.

    So I am a completist.

    I may end up a completist. So far, I've ended up buying at least 1 of every figures so, so far so good. I might have passed on Adora since I'm not that big of a She-ra fan, but I'm going to end up with her since I have a sub, which I don't mind.

    So far, I'm not going to pass up on any of the bonus figures I've seen so far.

    This is an interesting question. I have never thought of myself as a completist. However I have not seen anything from MOTUC that I have not wanted. I did not like the super posed anime hunchback figures of the 200x line. But I love EVERYTHING Matty has shown us thus far.

    MOTU to me is just so cool. I love everything about it. I get joy from this line everyday because it is so awesome to be having new Masters stuff coming out all the time. I guess I am more of an addict than completist because I need my monthly Masters high of the new figure coming in.

    I am, although the Meteorbs, Energy Zoids and maybe vehicles that I don't want would reach my limits. I guess I'd get them and put them away before somehow my opinion changes and I have to pay a fortune on eBay to a character that I would have passed on.

    But I am getting ALL of the eras.

    I will only buy and keep Masters of the Universe figures.

    Any She-ra and New adventures will be immediately resold on ebay. I do not like them at all..bleah

    Probably me. I don't plan on buying all of the re-releases - just He-Man so far, but otherwise I want every unique character.

    In terms of figures, I most likely will be a completist... I have the sub for this year and next, and so far really like all of the bonus figures we have seen, as well as Battle Cat (I do NOT consider him a bonus figure, even though it's klind of how Mattel has been referring to him).

    I also picked up 2 MAA to have one as MAA and the other as a generic guard; I put the non-mustached head on the guard, and took all his armor except chest armor off... put the extra leg and wrist armor on my "real" MAA with the mustached head. So... I'll probably pick up an extra Trap-Jaw to have Kronis, who I'll probably place on my "history" shelf with Greyskull, He-Ro, Zodac, Zodak, and Hordak (based on their bios putting them as historical figures, and Zodac not fitting in on the side of good or evil in "modern" times, really).

    However, I will most likely NOT be picking up any of the straight reissues; needs to be a different sculpt or "variant" (like the upcoming BA He-Man) to get my $$.

    So far I'm a completist (of loose figures) because I want all the till march officially announced upcoming MOTUC figures.
    I also like most of "Princess of Power", "New Adventures" and MYP 200X so those are all very much welcome
    I can't wait to get Adora!

    It it stays that way? Time will tell...
    Although I don't believe so because if the line will eventually release everything that has been released in the 80's, then I will definitely not get any Meteorbs, Energy Zoids and Rotar & Twistoid no matter how cool they may look, I really dislike them. I will not get all the Vehicles and perhaps not all Beasts either. I'm also still reserved about all repaints & variants of He-Man and Skeletor and I'm sure I won't get any re-issues after the most highly anticipated re-release of King Grayskull. Stratos for example, unless he has accessories and different feet.

    May the MOTUC line last for many years to come so we're able to see all of the releases!

    This is the first and only line where I've been a completist! I've never felt compelled to buy everything in a line before this one.

    Granted, that doesn't mean that I won't skip a bonus figure that totally doesn't appeal to me, but so far it hasn't happened. I think the only kinda bonus that would make me skip it is boring stuff like Queen Marlena in a green dress, or anything else really action-less.

    I'm a character completist, but not a figure completist.

    I am a completist in regards to wanting 1 of each and every figure, BUT I don't have 3 He-Ro's each with different spell stones (red, purple, and green) and I won't be buying 2 Trap-Jaw's in order to have Trap Jaw and Kronis. But I will be buying 1 of each figure until the series is complete or I go broke...hopefully NOT the latter.

    Seriously, though, most people don't count the spirit of grayskull because it was not technically "released".

    I'm generally a completist with this line. However, I didn't worry about getting the He-Ro that had the SDCC logo. I just have the regular one. Whatever.

    I'm a completist, but not to the extent that I'll get the re-releases of He-Man and Skeletor.
