    2014: Year of the Horse

    In the Chinese Zodiac calendar, the year 2014 is the "Year of the Horse". Toyguru (Scott) has vaguely suggested horses will be coming. Do you think he will tie the two together and offer up several Horse characters in 2014? I can see them doing one a quarter, either in sub or out of sub...

    Stridor
    Silver Storm
    Night Stalker
    Arrow

    And I'd even love to see Teela's golden unicorn.

    They already have the standard horse buck and, with some alterations, they could easily make Silver Storm, Arrow, and Teela's golden unicorn. Once they have the Stridor buck, they can easily make Night Stalker too; again, with some alterations to make him slightly unique.

    With the exception of strider and night stalker, I would prefer vehicles rather than obscure beasts

    I wouldn't mind ONE horse other than Swiftwind. But I hope they don't load us up with a bunch of horse clones unless there is something drastically different about each of them. Bring on Night Stalker and Stridor thought! I really can't wait for those. Stridor was my favorite 'beast' growing up.

    Well, I'd say prepare to eat some horses, Beastmaster. Silver Storm, Arrow, and Stridor have been trademarked. And Teela's golden unicorn was featured in the new DC comics. They are coming, sooner or later.

    I would love Stridor and NightStalker, I remember back in the day He-Man and Skeletor had BattleCat and Panthor. While Fisto and Jitsu had Stridor and NightStalker. It always made them seem special to me.

    I would love to see al the horses from MOTU and POP released. My sister had nearly all of them when we were kids, and Crystal Moonbeam and Crystal Sundancer were really neat. Ya, they were girly, but they were cool. And the buck now exists, so it's a no-brainer to me.

    I know some fans don't want to see this, so I suggest Mattel do a POP horse sub, and target girls. Perhaps put inserts in Barbie and Monster High toys about it. Price them all at $30, and have a She-Ra 2.0 for those that sign up. This would attract a new generation to POP, and would be a safe testing ground. You might also get some fathers of those girls to rekindle their memories of MOTU, and maybe they'll buy their own MOTU sub for themselves or their kids. Just and idea to grow the brand. Horsepower!

    Not really, considering his body isn't a horse but a man with two sets of arms and normal legs.

    Storm would be quite easy to make and would allow Catra to have a mount (mind you the same could be said of Clawdeen)

    Stridor and Nightstalker are quite demanded and would make perfect mounts for Fisto and Jitsu.

    I wouldn't be surprised if any of these 3 was released in 2014.
    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

    I wouldn't mind Arrow. But I'm not sure they can reuse the Swifty buck to make him Filmation-esque. They never should have sculpted the brace around Swift Wind's neck (this also prevents you from making an accurate Spirit).
    Most-wanted MOTUC: Granita - Hunga the Harpy - The Melog - Melaktha - Vultak - Dylamug - Crita - Sprag, Sprocker and Spritina - the Twiggets King Ahgo

    I would love to see any version of Storm make it into the line, as well as a toy-accurate Arrow. Teela's unicorn would be neat, but would be even better if it came packaged with a mini-comics variant of Teela to go with it.
    Oddly enough, I don't really care any more if we get Spirit or not for Adora.
    But Stridor and Nightstalker? Those are MUST HAVES!
    I wouldn't mind the Crystal horses (would be kinda cool if there were three, and one each could go to The Star Sisters!), but they aren't must haves.

    They could always tool a new piece for that section of the horse buck. It could be reused for a Filmation Arrow, Spirit, or Teela's golden Unicorn. They could design it without the detailed neck piece and without peg holes for the wings. Everything else, practically, could be reused.

    I'd be happy to see:

    Stridor
    Night Stalker
    Filmation-accurate Arrow
    Teela's Unicorn
    Spirit

    I mean, I wouldn't mind the others too much, but I doubt anyone but hardcore POP fans are really Jonesing for them. I think they will try to reuse that Swift Wind buck at least one more time (or at least most of the buck) to help justify the original tooling cost. It is a beautiful sculpt after all. I'm just pretty sure most of the fanbase is not clamoring for a rainbow of horses.

    Mind you, I'm one of those completists who wants one of everything (reasonably. I know I'll never have a silver She-Ra).

    Maybe some of the lesser-demanded horses as convention exclusives??

    I can't tell if your original post is serious. You think that they would release four horses in one year? I want ALL the horses but I can't see them ever doing more than one a year.

    Also, what was (or where was) Scott's vague suggestion?

    While I'd take them all, I NEED to get Spirit. He's probably the most major character we don't have.

    I also won't consider the line "good enough" until we get Arrow as well as Stridor and Nightstalker.
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti
