    I voted for the Filmation Robot Knights but if I could have a second choice, I'd vote for the Skelcons too!

    Clearly, the hover robots are the odds-on favorites. And while I'd welcome them in some capacity, I would really rather get a two-pack of Ladybird's Skelcons... again, they come from those lesser-known vintage sources, but they carry the flavor and the incongruous "rightness" of early vintage media.

    Skeletor having an army of robots at his command doesn't really make as much sense... except as kid-friendly cannon fodder. It's part of the move from Sword and Sorcery to Medieval Tech Noir that Filmation made with the property. But if Skeletor had the ability to mass produce these half-pint warriors, why not make full-on robot armies, and actually make them a force to contend with? They seem capable of menial tasks, but in a fight they were mostly useless.
    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

    Bone warriors. They are as much MOTU as the Hover robots.

    Legions of undead with weapons? That fits the theme of the magical Skeletor much better than floating small robot cannon fodder.

    Skelecons since Centurions aren't allowed to be made.

    Other.

    Skelecons. Ladybird books. They are awesome, unique, and help expand the all inclusive.

    But I know it's between the skelly warriors and hover robots. And that's fine. I will be happy to get either.

    But if it were up to me? Skelecons.

    Skeleton Warriors for me...though not necessarily the MVP ones. Those are fine, but just not entirely what I picture when I think of Skeleton Warriors for Skeletor.

    I'm definitely ok with the hover bots too, its just to me the Skeleton Warriors speak more to Skeletor and his type, if you will.
