I have to answer honestly and say I'm not sure. There's far too many variables, I think.
Also, great poll idea!
Yes, I'll Always Love He-Man And/Or She-Ra!
No, Those Lines Don't Do It For Me Anymore!
Yes, But I Wouldn't Visit As Frequently As I Do Now!
Maybe, I'm Not Sure!
I know a lot of people bring up the MOTU Commemorative toyline, the 2002 toyline, and the MYP cartoon as reasons that got them back into MOTU. If we hadn't had a toyline or cartoon since the vintage MOTU, POP and NA, would you still be a regular visitor to this site?
NOTE: Just because I used NA in the title of this thread, this poll isn't about NA. It is a hypothetical based on the idea that NA was the last toyline & cartoon for He-Man relased in stores & on TV respectively. If you never bought one NA toy or saw one NA episode, base your vote on your feelings for vintage MOTU and/or POP.

Yes, I'd still be here if we had not gotten anything new after NA. I never really got out of MOTU to begin with, it's always been something I've enjoyed and hopefully will to the day I die.
I visited the org and its previous incarnation before the newer stuff came out on a daily basis and I would still be coming on here daily if we had not gotten anything new.

NO! In that case I wouldn't be so interested in MOTU and won't be collecting it. In that case I probably wouldn't even know about existence of this place (I found the .Org for the first time few years ago when I searched some info related to 200x MOTU series). I would still be a MOTU fan though, but not so actively.

I was and still am.
My fandom for Filmation MOTU cartoon brought me to this place, and many other He-Fan sites back in the day ('97), and would still visit here for discussions.
Does your hypothetical scenario include that BCI had released the whole Filmation library of MOTU/POP/NA on DVD?
Yes, I'll Always Love He-Man And/Or She-Ra!
considering i own the seaons dvd sets and have only watched maybe 4-5 episodes i haven't really gotten the feel for it just yet, i will have to spend some more time w/ them and sit and watch w/ my son, after that then i'll post my thoughts.
Can I get a "Hell Yeah" for Scorpia!!!
My Trader Feedback thread:
Ahh...hard to say. I didn't become a regular visiter to this site until the MotUC line, honestly. I didn't get into the commemorative line 'cause I still had my original figures, and 200X...well I dunno, I just didn't feel the need to seek out a forum for that one. MotUC was new and I NEEDED information on it when it started, so I came here to get my fix.
I suppose the answer is no, but not because I didn't like NA. NA is awesome! I just didn't feel the need to come around until MotuC.

Alexx has a blog?! Come on in and check out Toys and Tomfoolery! You won't regret it...until the next morning.
No for sure.
200x cartoon made me jump again into the frenzy of the MOTU... whereas NA cartoon is THE aspect of the MOTU I dislike and regret the most... and probably the only one.
Yeah, I guess I'd still be here but not as often. It was looking up info on the vintage figures that brought me here in the first place. But I signed up because of the vast array of characters posting here and their...interesting views and takes on pop culture.

I have to say yes.
I would probably be more of a lurker/reader than a poster but I loved MOTU my whole life. It took the commemoratives coming out in stores for me to start posting if I recall. Before the commemoratives, all I had was my old figures in a box, my He-Man/She-Ra VHS tapes complete with awesome 80s commercials, and my stack of mini comics. I remember first looking up He-Man and the MOTU in the mid 90s on an early version of AOL so I kinda remember the ol Adam Tyner site. I was a lurker til the commemoratives came out then I became hooked.
I'd probably have to be banned or something horrible happen to me in real life to get me off of here.
Probably not. I've never seen an episode of NA, but from what little I know about it, that particular spin on HE-MAN doesn't do it for me.
I have nothing against it... I'm just not interested.
Always Expect the Unexpected!
No, I would not be here. I did watch He-man and She-ra when I was a kid, but they did not grab my imagination like Transformers, Wheeled Warriors, Voltron, GI Joe, or Dungeons and Dragons. I watch the shows, and then nothing. Didn't think about them afterward, never owned a single toy. MOTU was on the level that Smurfs and Muppet Babies were for me, fun to watch, but forgotten about once they stoped airing.
When 200x came around, my friends and I gather to watch the premier fully expecting to trash it. But the combination of style, story, and the right level of camp (we enjoy over the top fight scene) struck a cord.
I don't know. I remember searching for Motu on the internet somewhere early 2000/2001. I found the commemorative series and collected them. I read here sometimes, but wasn't a member. Then cam 200x, though i disliked most of the toys, I really liked the cartoon and oh was I sad it ended so soon again.
When Motuc arrived I immediately started to collect them and shortly after I got a member of these boards.
So if all of this didn't happen, I'm not sure if I still would be here or would look for Motu at all. A maybe for me...
I've always wanted a motu to be remade. it was 200x that got me excited about motu again. motu needed reinvented. so i'm a bigger fan of 200x motu. n/a & she-ra was very disappointing to me but I love how they look for motuc.
I'm not sure.
I got back into MOTU after seeing the beautiful designs for toys for 200X (I think - if not it was randomly around then) but I like to think I would have found this place sooner or later anyway!
I've just changed my profile picture because we got Geldor in MOTUC!
yeah I'd be here but most likely not as active a member. I lurked and browsed his site long before joining and one of the first things I looked up on the internet and then later on ebay was MOTU.

Heck yeah I would still be here, there are toons that haven't been seen for ages yet I still visit sites dedicated to them. For example my personal fave....Kidd Video!
SUPPORTING THE NEW ADVENTURES OF HE-MAN 110%
Nope 200X got me back into MOTU as an adult. The vintage stuff would've remained an interesting footnote from my early childhood otherwise. To be honest I was born when the MOTU craze was starting to die down and I was far more into Dino-Riders and Ninja Turtles as a child.

It was the MOTUC toys that got me back into it. skipped both 200x and NA when they were new. I think He-man would have just stayed in the lost realms of old cartoons for me...probably still have my 25th An GIJOE collection....
Like a few other .orgers, i came across this site while looking up info - on the vintage figures. If NA was the last animation then i'd still be here as MotU and PoP were part of my life growing up and i still harbour interest in this of course. NA i'm just getting into, only because of the cycle of growing up which made me turn my interest elsewhere.
