    NYCC Vote: Choose an NA character (Darius VS Mara VS Tuskador)

    While greeting Power-Con attendees this weekend at Mattel's Power-Con booth, Scott announced a new vote will take place to determine which of three New Adventures Characters will be included in the Classics line! Two will be named early on with the third character to be revealed at a later date.

    I'm personally hoping for He-Slave.

    Now i´m little confused:

    We get to vote for a NA character to be included in the MOTUC line. So to speak there is a NA spot but they haven´t decided to whom it will go.

    They will give us three choices but they don´t reveal all three choices at the same time. The third choice is revealed later on.

    Do i understand that correctly?
    *Peekablue *Mermista *Toy version Catra *Sagitar *Drissi *Crita *Lizorr *Zilora *Granita *Delora *Battle Armor Queen Marlena *Queen Veena *Calix *Hawke *Pebblass(Minicomic Comet Warrior) *Lady Slither

    I'll bet that it will be out of Sagitar, Tuskador or Crita.

    What does it mean "at an upcoming show"? Does it mean at NYCC? So it will not be the fans nor the sub holders that will get to vote, but the show attendees, like they did with the choice between Huntara and Lord Masque. So it seems Mattel hasn't learned anything from that previous experience and all the fan frustration it generated, and insists on rewarding casual passers-by while flipping the bird at their loyal paying customers, who are the ones who will actually be buying the chosen figure.

    I can think of like a dozen more important NA characters to get to before He-Slave.
    Madrid | Lang It Yourself | Dozens | Angast, Aramesh, Aroo, Azrog, Balina, Basher, Batmek, Bone Throne, Celice, Collector, Colossor, Dark Dream, Delora, Dragosaur, Elmora, Eternos Palace, Garth, Gleedal, Granita, Hexon, Ileena, Kittrina, Majestra, Molkrom, Mortella, Ollo, Orko's Bed, Rabar, Sandipede, Schminivit, Snoob, Sumana, Tamusk, Tataran, Tic-Toc, Valtira, Wolfbat, Yog, Zilora, Zoog

    I can see that for sure as a vote between popular, but highly tooled characters.

    The other alternative I can imagine is that they will find the resources for those, but will only have one slot for the mid-level popular characters (kind of like Huntara/Masque). So something like

    Spinwit / Artilla / Butthead

    EDIT: FWIW, Spinwit almost never gets brought up in the NA discussions, but I think 4H could knock him out of the park.

    I really hate that NA always gets shafted when it comes to the classics line. You might not like the cartoon, but a lot of the character designs are far superior to other areas.

    I hope its a listing like this, than more heavy hitters like Sagitar and Tuskador.

    I have mixed feelings about this, i love NA and want more figures from this line but if i'll have to choose between NA Skeletor or Tuskador (one small example) that will be a problem

    That would be EVIL! lol Crita and Mara are definite must-haves in this line. I hope it's a choice out of less obvious characters, because really, when it comes to NA (outside Mara, Crita, NA Skeletor)...I don't blame Mattel for not knowing what the NA fans want. The average MOTUC collector seems to be unhappy with Hydron (which is crazy!), so giving everyone a chance to vote on one of the NA released, I think, is a very good idea.

    Surely it should be the sub holders who get to decide rather than a handful of fans at a show?

    Things like this should be a benefit of supporting the line and committing to it for a full year.

    I wholeheartedly agree. People voting at the show might not even be buying MOTUC figures.

    I don't get it: is it ONLY one NA spot for the rest of the 2014/2015 roadmap???

    I hope that Flogg and NA Skeletor are already planned and that we are talking about one extra spot, not the only remaining NA spot!

    To me the NA essential core characters we need are:

    - NA Skeletor (we need this variant to match the NA He-man figure)
    - Flogg (leader of the mutants faction)
    - Darius (was meant to be the leader of the Galactic guardians, plus he had a prototype and appeared in several medias as an important character)
    - Mara (the equivalent to Teela for NA)
    - Crita (the equivalent to Evil Lyn)
    - Sebrian (would not necessarily make a good figure but he was a prominent figure in the NA cartoon)

    There are other characters that would make great figures in MOTUC (like Sagitar, Stagorn...) but on the whole all those secondary characters don't seem as essential to the MOTU mythos as the six guys I've mentioned... What do you think?
    20 Most needed characters before MOTUC ends...

    Heroic: Lizard Man / King Miro / Hawke / Dakon
    Evil: Evilseed
    POP: Angella / King Micah / General Sunder/ Twiggets 3 pack
    Horde: Vultak / Hunga / Prahvus
    POG: Veena
    SnakeMen: Tung Lashor / Sssqueeze
    Rock People: Granita
    NA: Darius / Sebrian

    Nah, I'm pretty sure Scott said the road map includes the most popular NA characters (i.e. Flogg), although on Roast Gooble he did seem iffy about Sagitar because of the tooling involved.

    I'm going to guess that the spot people will be voting on will be a regular monthly spot that has been left open for an N.A. Character. Thus Sagitar wouldn't be in the vote since its already been said that he requires a beast slot.

    Sagitar was consistently one of the main Galactic Protectors with He-Man, Hydron and Flipshot in Jetlag.

    You ask me the entirety of 2014/15 should have been built off of the boards 'Must Lists'!

    Anyway, for this one I'd have to go with:

    Tuskador
    Sagitar
    Butt-Head (or as he's lovingly called on the 'toon- BH)

    I've not included the 'gimme' A-list slots- like Flogg and NA Skeletor- because if they aren't already on the list and therefore removed from any need to vote than I worry about this so-called new and improved roadmap Scott is touting.
    Harken to the coming of RIO BLAST!!

    Sagitar is the figure I want most aside from Brakk/ Flogg
    He's just too badass! And now that Extendar is pretty much confirmed, Sagitar (and Tung Lashor) is my most wanted figure in MOTUC!
    I'd be so ****** off if we'd get to choose between Sagitar, Crita and Mara. Because based on the outcry for the two female characters, I'm sure Sagitar wouldn't be made.

    This poll should be for subscribers not for attendees at a show and ALL the options should be revealed AT THE SAME TIME... Anything else might lead towards accusations of sketchy or skewed polls.
    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.

    Personally I'm hoping for Darius, but no matter who wins the vote, he/she deserves it.
    Maybe Marzo as an archenemy was the biggest thing to happen to Mekaneck, but as far as Marzo was concerned...it was Tuesday.

    Agreed. As the show progressed,the nine protectors definitely sorted into three categories.

    Almost every episode: Hydron, Flipshot, Sagitar
    Showed up with regular frequency: Artilla, Tuskador, Spinwit
    Almost never showed up: Vizar, Nocturna, Kayo

    I think one of the reasons NA had trouble catching on was that the cartoon went for a long time with only those first three characters. The others would show up occasionally, but were sometimes not named or have any dialog. In fact, somewhere early in the show Spinwit is mentioned as being taken captive and I remember thinking.. "Who is Spinwit?" I went back and watched and realized that he was never mentioned by name before this. Up until that point he was "blue guy with orange arms". They seemed to rely on you knowing from the toys.

    The episode "The Galactic Proctectors" was great, but frustrating. It was a chance to really get to meet Spinwit, Artilla and Tuskador and learn a little bit about what their deal was. This was episode 31 of 65. So we were halfway through the series before any attention was really paid to them and even then, Kayo, Nocturna and Vizar weren't even in the episode specifically designed to introduce the Guardians. Kayo had a brief bit of spotlight at the tail end of the series. Nocturna did a couple of things and poor Vizar had one line in the last episode and (sorry I'm not going to look it up), the line was something like "Look Out" or something equally non-memorable.

    Yeah I'm not sure why you would announce the candidates at different times. That part seems weird.

    I understand that everyone has their favorite figures, but I don't get saying that Darius deserves a figure more than any of the others. Don't get me wrong, I want ALL the NA characters, but I believe that the classic figures and major jetlag characters should come before prototype characters. Even Kayo was in the mini comics and cartoon.

    I've said this before, but Mattel never misses the chance to insult NA. We were promised at the beginning of MOTUC that ALL of the figures would be made, and the line is going to end with only a handful of characters made.

    I very much agree with Your breakdown. THESE are the New Adventures figures that are Non-Optional for MoTUC (I'd give Master Sebrian a "Meh!", but he WAS kind of important). However, all six of these characters coming in the next two years seems wildly unlikely, given that we haven't gotten six N.A.s in the past five! :^D

    It's true that Sagitar was a pretty high-profile character on the show, but pretty much ANY other Galactic Guardian was a non-entity. The rest of the "lesser" Mutants had it a little better, but not by much. I would appreciate a figure of Kayo, for instance (he's Optikk's opposite number!), but while I vaguely recall him BEING on the show, I could not say I remember even one pertinent thing he ever did or said.

    This vote will be interesting, but given the choice between such characters as Lizorr, Nocturna, and Quakke, I would be at a loss who I personally would choose. I have the figures, and they generally look great/have a cool/interesting gimmick, but the characters really don't do much for me.

    Spinwit could re-use quite a bit of Man-E-Faces tooling! He is actually one of the easy ones!
