    2010 Prediction Game

    So, who do you really think is coming between April and December of 2010?

    Based on what we know of the line so far and hints we've been given in Q&A's lets make some educated guesses. And in a few months we will see how close we get. Remember, this is not who you want but who you realistically think will be made.

    Based on Matty's proclivity to give us characters that were underproduced in previous lines, existing body parts, hints from bios, etc, I am going to make the following guesses:

    Spikor - Was never produced for 200x, not even as a statue and these characters seem to be a priority for the Horsemen.

    Sorceress (Classic) - Important character, barely made it into the original line. Been repeatedly referred to in the bios.

    Marzo - I don't think he's ever been produced before in any line. And they made it a point to build him up in Randor's bio.

    She-Ra - She has been confirmed by Mattel, but also note she never made it into the regular 200x line.

    Kobra Khan - We should have a snake man and this would be the easiest and most popular one next to King Hsss.

    Adam (200X) with Orko pack in. The fact that they have stated that they are at least entertaining a 200X style Adam gives me hope that they will not go the 1980's route with this figure. And Orko as a pack in makes more sense than as a stand alone figure.

    Buzz-Off. He's a major character. I would be surprised not to get him within the first two years of the line.

    Optikk. We know we are getting a NA character. This is probably the most visually interesting one of the lot. And the name has been copy written for what its worth.

    Man-E-Faces. It seems from Q&A responses that he is in development but I wouldn't expect him until late in the year. Once Trap Jaw is made they have a lot of his parts.

    BONUS FIGURES:

    Stinkor - Another figure that never made it into his own slot in the 200X line. I expect him to either take an early slot after Moss-Man or to be an early bonus figure.

    VEENA - She will be a bonus figure to appease those of us who want a 200X Sorceress.

    I dunno about Marlena. If you think about it, there are already two slots occupied by female characters in 2010 (Adora and She-Ra) and I can't see them doing more than 3 or 4 female characters in a year. I think if they do three it will be Sorceress and if they do four it will be Evil-Lyn. I would imagine that Marlena is pretty far down the list.

    Evil warriors
    Evil Lyn: She's about 80%-90% done thanks to Teela. (New Head and staff or rod)
    Whiplash: Need some of his pieces for Buzz Off
    Marzo
    Heroic Warriors
    Fisto: (Armor can be used for Clamp Champ, who also has a lot of fans)
    Adam Vintage style. (He-Man repaint with Triklop's lower arms. Magenta sword and hopefully a Filmation-esque sword to match Adora's)
    Buzz Off
    Others
    Eldor: Given the love for Preternia and SDCC well, he's a nice candidate.
    Slushhead: I needed someone for the NA slot...
    She-Ra (We already have Adora... She-Ra can't be too far behind)
    Bonus
    Adam 200X inspired. (We would need the jacket and scabbard. He-Ro's Gauntlet's, Hordak's Gloves on a He-man body. Adam's 200X sword and scepter would be the accessories.) Also there have been comments about considering the idea of a 200X Adam.
    Keldor: Pretty much Skeletor with maybe Beastman Feet or Stratos Feet (depends if he's gonna be barefoot or not.) a New head with a cape. 200X blade (might not get a havok staff if he get's a skelly head.)
    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.

    Sorry, but who is Strobo? Is that one of those stage characters like Songster? I'm usually not stumped on figure names.

    April: Fisto
    SDCC: She-Ra

    I am quite positive we'll see Evil Lyn and Orko. NA He-Man, Tytus, Mekaneck, BA Skeletor, Prince Adam. Stinkor and Clamp Champ are also good possibilities...

    TG: Strobo is an unproduced character. He has Syclone's body painted in flesh with a Zodac head.

    The females are good heavy, so:

    Evil-Lyn
    Kobra Kahn (to ease the Snake-man pang)
    Spikor
    Whiplash
    Stinkor
    She-Ra
    Slush-head (Going to start MOTU NA off right, plus his feet are easily taken from other evil warriors)
    Mecha-neck
    Count Marzo

    Bonuses:
    Panthor
    Sky Sled
    Battle Armor Skeletor
    Weapons Pack

    With the way this line is working out, it seems like a lot is pivoting on the arrival of the Sorceress. Oddly, I feel like she is going to be a bonus figure, with massive amounts of articulation in her wings, complete with Zoar and possibly the Throne of Grayskull. I'm not expecting her until 2011 to help space out the line. I think that if things start to look like they are winding down for MOTUC, then they might rush her. As long as we are still seeing quick sell-outs on top of subscriptions, I think it is safe to say the line will be around a while. Others that I think will likely arrive in 2011:

    Ram-Man
    King Hiss
    Catra
    Frosta
    Fisto
    Jitsu
    Clamp Champ
    Grizzlor
    Roboto
    Syklone
    Buzz-off

    Bonus:
    Eldor
    Sorceress
    Ninjor
    Talon Fighter

    -Necrono

    I think you can find pics of him in one of the Masters of the Universe Magazines.

    Confirmed for 2010 by Mattel: She-Ra and Orko - any list that doesn't contain these two - looks like you're going to have to re-work it a bit.

    She-Ra
    Adam & Orko 2-pack
    Count Marzo
    Mekaneck
    Evil-Lyn
    Optik
    Stinkor
    Kobra Khan
    Man-E-Faces
    PRAISE HESTIA!!!

    "Yep! And now I'm gonna blast ya!"

    Yikes, so much for getting Strobo as a bonus figure.

    I think he'd be a good subscription bonus, along the same lines as Wun-Dar.

    I'm not going to try to guess a whole years worth of bonus and "subscription" figures, but I'd expect:

    Count Marzo
    She-Ra
    Evil-Lyn
    BA Skeletor
    Kobra Kahn
    Prince Adam and Orko
    Matty, Great Black Wizard figure please!

    Strobo would be an awesome bonus figure... but he didn't appear in the mini-comics, the vintage, NA, POP, or 200X lines as a figure, nor in anything Mattel owned (I don't think).

    Still, he would be awesome. He has a blue cape too. You can kit-bash him pretty easily with a vintage Zodac head, Sy-Klone Torso (flesh color), legs, waist, and King Randor Cape.

    As for my 2010 guesses (9 month slots, plus SDCC exclusive, plus some bonus figures):

    Evil-Lyn
    Grizzlor
    She-Ra
    Orko / Cringer
    Prince Adam
    Mekaneck
    Ninjor
    Optikk
    Slush Head

    Sorceress as the SDCC figure, or She-Ra as the SDCC figure... can't decide, but the Sorceress will be more expensive to produce than most of the other figures I'd think

    Bonus Figures: Catra, Stinkor, BA Skeletor, Panthor

    Evil-Lyn COULD be a bonus figure, which would make room in my list for another monthly/subscription figure... it would be weird, but she could be done first as a straight up re-do of the 1980s version... and all she'd need is a new head, her wand, and maybe a cape, if they do her as seen in the mini-comics. She's going to need LARGE production numbers, because she will sell out as quickly as Man at Arms did.
