Until I see Clawful or Khan I will be a sad panda...
any 2002 inspiration in either Roboto or King Hiss...
....the 2002 head for Buzz Off...

Until I see Clawful or Khan I will be a sad panda...
i'm super happy that buzz off and roboto are coming... but clawful as well would have caused me to pass out (everything coming out until the end of 2010 is freaking awesome, apart from chief carnivus).
I had mixed feelings when i saw the list before the reveal (and was a bit nervous at how Roboto would turn out) and wasn't sure what to make of Bow & Vikor. After all was revealed, i can honestly say those feelings were laid to rest and i'm quite content and happy but like most i really thought we'd see a female figure (namely Catra or Marlena). Other than these two ladies, i actually thought we'd see Rattlor and Jitsu... ah well, next time
a female figure.... I was hoping to see Marlena or Catra (in my dreams I really wanted Spinnerella) . However like most people I am pleased with what was revealed at SDCC.
Mattel I demand the following:
Spinwit,Spinnerella, The Scientists, Rio Blast, Mara, Crita, Kayo, Mermista,
My Facebook, check it out!
Overall, I am satisfied what we are getting.
However, Man-E-Faces and Ram-Man can't come soon enough.
I was disappointed that the army builder 2 pack was not Horde Troopers, but Eternian Palace Guards are my second choice and they were executed well.
The biggest disappointment for me was Vikor, then getting Pre-Eternian disguise He-man the next month. I consider Vikor a He-Man variant (concept He-man in a sense) and he would make better as an SDCC exclusive. I would rather have Eldor in the subscription than Vikor.
Fisto, Man E Faces, and Snout Spout.
Rock Warriors or Movie Figures
A Galactic Protector (the only group not to have representation yet)
I've just changed my profile picture because we got Geldor in MOTUC!
It's time for more of the later figures from the vintage Toyline. Where are all of the wave 5/wave 6 figures? So far we only got
Where are all the others?
I can wait for the first waves-figures, most of them we saw 2 releases of already... but why no love for the later figures, only because of the tooling?
Hey, they recycled Keldor's boots and Hordak's gloves for King Hsss...
I really like the characters that are coming. I'm really glad we're seeing BA Skeletor,
Dang, we didn't see any NA figures, Ram-Man, Man-E-Faces, Frosta, Sorceress, Catra, Snout Spout, Tung Lashor ... erm. all of em. Still no filmation - personaly I don't think it will happen now.
For the first time a version of King Hsss actually like. I never liked the original nor the 200x version (though I like his look in the 200x toon). Finally a King Hsss that looks cool IMO.
I would like to have seen more females mixed in. And dang, no panthor.
I'm hoping that next year they don't have the all in one subs as I would never be able to afford the existing sun plus vehicles.
I'm gonna have to say dang, we didn't get Catra & Stinkor, & for the good guys, Mekanek & Man-E-Faces.

Does Galactus fart?
I am most shocked that Mattel didn't reuse Carnivus's waist piece for King Hiss! The belt emblem resembles a snake more than a feline.
Horde troopers, and Stinkor.
Overall I am kind of bummed we didn't get Man-E-Faces, Mekaneck or Ram Man. However I understand mattel wants to space out the fan favorites. All the figures shown were awesome so I can't complain. I'm really digging on Vikor, very nice sculpt.
I think Roboto and Buzzy looked just like I thought they would. So, no surprises. I love Bow, however Peekablue is my all time fav vintage POP toy. Doubt I see her anytime soon.

MOTUC NEEDS more TROLLANS !!!
That said I did dig everything (including Vikor) but it's been a long time coming for ol' Spikor. For some reason I was thinking they were gonna surprise us with Ram Man to try and boost subscriptions, but I was wrong.
There are still A LOT of figures I am anxious for, but I thought it was a nice group. I feel a bit for the NA fans and female figure fans though since they got no love.
We didn't see any ladies.
all Trademarked for a while now, and none shown ;(
A Want List of Sorts: Eldor, Imp, Filmation Hordak, Sweet Bee, Arrow, NA She-Ra, Spinnerella, Mermista, Gwildor, Tung Lasher, Evil Sky Sled, Lizard Man, Dragstor, Huntara, Stridor, Filmation Hover-Bots, Night Stalker, ... and all the other POP & NA characters.
Now that I've had some more distance, I realize I wanted to see another He-man and Skeletor variant. I know BA Skeletor is coming which was an easy guess. But I was hoping to see NA He-man or maybe Thunder Punch He-man. I know some people despise variants, but I like them and it does fit the He-man mythos that he has different armors and weapons.
I'm hoping we'll see more later on in the months ahead.
We survived the long night.... MOTU Forever!
...New Movie news
Personally I was happy with what was shown especially King Hsss and Vikor which I was surprised that I realley like.
I was hoping something more solid or official was released about the movie but I can live without that for now
So far, I'm happy with what was shown. Was hoping for Meka but these will do. I'm glad we're getting more Heroic Warriors before the years end and a member of the Great rebellion to start the next year.
Love King Hiss. Hoping to have a bigger Hydra form but that one will do. Sure hoping the the snake mouths we're movable.
By the Power... and For the Honor of GRAYSKULL!!!
HE-MAN and SHE-RA Rules!!!

Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from MAGIC!
- Clarke's Third Law
Even though Sorceress is my favorite character, I'm at peace with the fact that we're not seeing her for a while. Not seeing Catra at the con was VERY disappointing.
"Yep! And now I'm gonna blast ya!"
- Orko to Skeletor in "Lessons"
Dang! We didn't get Smash Blade He-Man!
I would've traded the Buzz-Off and Vikor reveals for something like Lodar, Geldor, Catra, Queen Marlena and/or the Sorceress.
I will say this, the way Mo-Larr, Prince Adam and now supposedly POG He-Man have non-removable clothes/vests give me an idea of how Ram Man's going to be approached.
Oh yeah, and "Dang! We didn't get a Ram Man!"
We didn't get Ramman!
