    30th Anniv. Runners-Up Mini-Sub?

    With the whole concept of mini-subs being on the hearts, minds and lips of fandom currently I'm curious who might be up for a mini-sub of the Runners-Up from the 30th Anniversary line-

    • Ra-Jar
    • Three Beast
    • Bubblor
    • Major Header


    Scott (TG) never said these were off the table for good and although I get that '14/15 needs to be all about the A-listers, the essence of the mini-sub concept is to help fill in those holes not fulfilled by the main line. Tell me these four wouldn't be completely and utterly awesome as translated by the Horsemen? This would have the added benefit of helping to expand the line while adding new fan-demanded characters. If I'm wrong and fans would rather these fade into obscurity I'm fine with that, but someday, somehow I'd love to see these made.

    Adding a pic to refresh the memory-

    Three Beast and Bubblor just don´t do much for me and Gangstor….i´m glad we don´t speak about him anymore, way to goofy/gimmicky plus a striped suit….pa-leeeez.

    Major Header and Ra-Jar now those two are awesome and if there had been a female Snake Man i would buy into it with out thinking twice!

    Yep, sounds good, i think a Minotaur would be a great ( and still missing) addition to the lore,
    ...it's funny I remember on one of the videos TG put out around about the of the grayskull man reveal, he said "yeah we had a load of entry's and there were a lot of Minotaur characters" now I'm a fan of CGSM, but surely if a lot of people want the same thing,....give it to them, shrug!

    They're cool enough but how many people would really prefer this over a POP, 200x, Filmation, NA, or mini-comics sub? I'd wager not too many.
    IT'S TIME FOR MOTUC TO GO GREEN … INCLUDE THE TWIGGETS IN 2015!!!

    If the line is still around for the 35th anniversary, I'd be up for it, but until we get to that point, there are way many more figures that I'd like to see made first.
    Proud supporter of the Snake Men.

    Most Wanted: Slave Girl, Crita, Lizorr, Tyrantisaurus Rex, Great Black Wizard.
    Most Wanted Filmation: Lord Masque, Ileena, Granita, General Sunder, Teela, He-Man, Skeletor, Hordak head.

    No Slave Girl? Watch us hurl!

    A barbaric world without slave girls? That's truly barbaric!

    They might as well lump this sub with the sub that has all of Axel Gimenez Concepts Like The Great Black Wizard and Band width.

    I would love all four of these figures, along with Great Black Wizard, Bandwidth, Red Shadow, Gladiator, and Fang-Or in 2016. Right now everything vintage and animation A-listers should come out the next two years.
    Let's get HUNGA THE HARPY before 2016!

    I don't think they should be a dedicated mini-sub, it probably wouldn't sell enough.
    But i'd be happy to have them mixed into the line in 2016 and beyond with the new comic characters and remaining NA, Filmation and 200X guys.

    Not even a little interest. We got Photog, and Grayskullman. The winners got their figures, and Scott made good on a Matty welsh from 20 years ago. Leave the character designs to the professionals. If anyone should be creating new He-Man characters, it should be Cornboy, Treadway, and the gang.
    My 2016 Wishlist:

    2.0s: HE-MAN, Teela
    Filmation: KITTRINA, Vultak, Dylamug
    200x: VEENA, Prahvus
    NA: CRITA, Staghorn, Quakke, Butthead
    Concept: RED BEAST, Tony Guerrero He-Man

    What's the logic here? I don't get it.

    I would be in for a full sub of new characters. The new mini comic characters, a couple of these guys, giddy up.

    No interest from me.

    Three-Beast is a cool design and Bubblor is pretty unique, but I don't like the other two at all.

    If we were going to get a mini-sub based off of the non-winning CAC entries, I think it would be better to see all the entries and have a fan vote for the 6 most wanted.

    I'd sign up in a heartbeat, considering all four are better than Castle Grayskullman. Major Header and Bubblor especially. Gangstor was a complete joke - best to totally forget about him.

    The sixth figure should be Might Bite.

    Please use the search feature. This has been discussed multiple times. Mattel can not do this due to legal stipulations. Also not interested at all.

    IMO these are very cool designs (much better than TMS, CC or even SLL) and I'll sign up for them when they're due.
    But for now, I'd rather get the vintage and the 200X stuff out of the way...

    While cool these are a very very low priority for me and not something I would expect to see until after the ORIGINAL 2017 road map is completed. After that point I still don't see the need for a separate mini sub. Just sprinkle in one of these figures each year starting 2018. At that point the line will be smaller and all the characters will be pretty obscure so there would be no reason to separate these figures out of the main line.

    Actually this is a great idea, as Illumina seems to fall outside of the normal 'continuity' of other eras. And she'd help to round out the number of offerings. Four isn't many.
    Harken the coming of Dragstor!!
