    Would you accept Bravestarr in MOTUC

    This question is not if you want Bravestarr characters but would you accept them if the were introduced in to MOTUC?

    They have an obvious connection to Rio Blast and according to Emiliano....;

    The 2 companies had a close relationship back then but the idea definitely started at Filmation.
    I don't know if Mattel kept any rights to the toys, but the concept in probably entirely in the hands of the Filmation library owners.

    He-Man was supposed to appear at the beginning of the series and be the inspiration for Bravestarr to become a Marshall (or something like that, I'd need to reread the documents)
    ...there was meant to be more of a connection. So would you accept them if the were somehow incorporated into MOTUC, either as a sub line or a run of exclusives?

    No MOTU isn't a Western!

    I'm not fond of characters that are too close of what our world is such as Rio-Blast or Ninjor, so I can't imagine Bravestarr characters n MOTU and I would not accept them... Hope I will never be forced to.

    Sure, Rio Blast needs buddies to do the lone gun-man thing with!

    I wouldn't mind seeing Bravestarr himself, maybe as an exclusive of some sort (sub seems best to me), but I wouldn't really care for any other characters from that line.

    Sure, I would accept them.

    But... why would Bravestarr-fans have to accept that?? :| Bravestarr is a perfectly fine character and property in itself, why not instead hope for a revamp of the actual Bravestarr-line, instead of being a spin-off to He-man??

    At least Bravestarr and Thirty-Thirty are needed to partner up with Rio Blast. If this happens I'm going to squeal like a little girl.
    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.

    Would I have a choice? But it really doesn't matter to me as long as I get my favorite villains as well.

    id buy any guy in a motuc format...
    ESp- Bravestarr, Blackstar, Flash Gordon or any other weird space/dragon/sci fi combos!!!
    Man lives in the sunlit world of what he believes to be reality.
    But...there is, unseen by most, an underworld, a place that is just as real,
    but not as brightly lit... a darkside.

    I didn't vote as im really not sure. I like the idea of Rio Blaster coming from Bravestars planet but otherwise im not interested in the two worlds meeting and being part of MOTUC.

    Yeah, that would be OK with me.

    I could always 'pretend' that the BRAVESTARR characters are just from another part of Eternia. I mean, c'mon... an entire planet is a pretty big thing. There's lots of space. It doesn't all have to be about the Royal Palace, Snake Mountain, and just that part of Eternia.

    And we all know the 4 HORSEMEN would make them cool as blazes.

    Yes I whole heartally aproove but I feel they might be better served as a separate line with ties to MOTUC than part of the line.

    As much as I love Bravestarr, I`d have to say no as well. Bravestarr is great in it`s own, I`d love to see a new Bravestarr line but not in MOTUC. He`s important enough to get his own line!

    The more lines are mixed together, the more their identity is lost.

    I'm surprised the "yes" votes are more numerous than the "no".
    Starting like that why not including "My Little Pony" as mounts in MOTU

    I voted yes, but I want to qualify it:

    I like Bravestarr. I'd buy Bravestarr toys. But NEVER if they took the place of what could have been a MOTU character. If we get Bravestarr, I don't care if it come sunder the MOTUC brand. That's fine. Give it a 'Bravestarr' sticker or something. Whatev. But if it happens, I'd want them to be relegated to bonus figures -outside- of the normal bonus figures we already expect.

    In other words, no MOTU character or re-release should be postponed or canned in favour of a character, however beloved, from a completely different brand.

    We can't have My Little Pony in MOTUC because it's a Hasbro property...

    As for why there are so many yes votes (mine included). I have no idea about the others, but for me it's simple:
    Rio Blast's design looks like a Bravestarr character instead of a MOTU character. Also I wouldn't buy an entire Bravestarr line, Mattel is draining my wallet enough with MOTUC, the random DCUC characters I like and other products.
    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.

    No, under no circumstances.

    On the other hand...I would love to have a Bravestarr "Classics" type toyline.

    There are more dimensions in the MOTU-verse so Bravestarr does not have to be on Eternia.

    It could still be on New Texas, or to make it more MOTU "Nexas", which could be in any of the other dimensions. Rio Blast could be from this other dimension and some how wound up on the planet of Eternia

    It is good to see the "yes" is winning though

    I don't think this is ever going to happen but I would be all for it.

    * Like MOTU, Filmation & Mattel worked together on the vintage line.

    * MOTU is a franchise already full of different genres(fantasy, sci-fi, superheroes) as well as planets.

    * Two words. Rio Blast

    Please, let us complete the MOTUC line before adding another line to it, especially one that does not fit.

    It just another Spin-Off.
    What factors decide if Snakemen, Rock People & Meteorbs, New Adventures, POP, POG are related to MOTUC or to a separate toyline? MATTEL decide. It just an enterprise decision. All this lines can be MOTUC or not, it just a commercial choice.

    So Im in favor to include Bravestarr. The toyline have cool designs, they can fit in MOTUC (just because a character like Rio Blast exists, in other case Ill say NO, but he is the connection between 2 worlds. Is Rio Blast the only cowboy in Eternia? I don´t believe it).
