    Meterorbs mini sub? What do you think?

    Would you buy a mini sub of the Meterorbs if they made them bigger and more detailed? I think the 4H could really knock these guys out of the park and make them awesome.What do you think?

    A lot of issues with this one. First off there are so many of them. It would be tough to get ten figures into one mini sub. The next issue would be scale. I personally do not want the tiny little scale. I would like to see them in the Star comics scale which would make them a beast size figure more than a regular figure so price would be a problem. The next thing is would people want them as animals or animal inspired characters like Emiliano made them? I would like to see it get done but I have high doubts. In the end I don't think their popularity is high enough to ever see it happen.

    I think an NA mini-sub would have a better chance of going through than a Meteorbs mini-sub.
    Here's how to end the line:
    2015 200x Mini-Sub: Evilseed, Calix, Prahvus, Horde Wraith, Miro, Veena, Hawke

    2016 line: LordMasque, Vultak, Granita, Despara, Dylamug, Hunga, General Sunder,Tuskador, Crita, Lodar, Quakke, Darius

    Quarterly items: Sagitar, Stridor, Night Stalker

    If they did a mini-sub of 2-packs maybe it'd work? I think it'd be cool to make the for those that want them. Myself, I'd definitely have to see how they turned out as I have no love for them, really. No nostalgia. Even as a kid I kind of felt like they were just a weird cash-in attempt.

    I would not buy this. There are so many more (and more popular) possibilitys for mini subs.
    I dont like the Meteorbs and dont want them in my collection.

    I don't know if I'd want ALL of them, and they certainly wouldn't have to bulk up the size or detail in order to make them "fit" in the line order to get my attention... I'm just concerned that they'd be out-of-control expensive this stage in the game. There's, what? 10 of them, total? Dropping $300 to get all ten of them isn't something I'm really into at all. If they had been sprinkled throughout the line from the beginning... maybe a three-pack here, a three-pack there... or one packed in with the odd accessory-lite figure... the idea of Meteorbs would be more palatable for me, personally. But we're so close to wrapping up the line... I want Lord Masque before Orbear, Crita before Cometroid... where would these fit in at this point, and how much would they be? And they'd HAVE to transform, of course... so... ???

    Unless they make them beast-sized, I think 2 packs would be right.
    Top want list: Evil Seed, Snake Mountain Man, Mask of Power Demons, Dree-Elle, Uncle Montork, Mini-Comics Beast-Man, 200x Beast-Man, Teela 2.0, Battle-Ram, Snake Mountain, & a hardcover collection of all the mini-comics.

    I never had them as a kid but won't consider my collection complete until I have them all. Any way I can get them I'll take them.

    Would I buy this? Probably. Do I want it? No. I can think of dozens of mini-subs I'd rather have. Filmation II, NA, Little Guys, 200x, Mini comic exclusive characters, Son of He-Man, Concept only, Create-a-Character runners up, etc. Pretty much the only mini sub I'd dislike more than this would be an all-variant sub.

    Totally down for a mini-sub. but I'd want them to remain small in size, even better just do 1 6-pack and call it good. But I would much rather have a Trollan/Twiggit mini sub first.

    I think it sounds about as successful as a screen door on a submarine.

    That was exactly what I was thinking. Get out of my head!

    On further reflection, though, the only reasonable way I could see this working is perhaps as a set of very small PVC-style pieces. They would not transform, and could be sold in a pack like the weapons pack. I might go for that, actually. They might go very well with the rock warriors on my display.

    Anything else would be more expensive than they'd be worth to me. I only had a couple of them as a kid, and never had a strong attachment to them. Or any attachment, really.

    I don't know how well a mini-sub would work.

    Quarterly, out of sub or convention 2-packs may be a better way to release them. How ever they go about it, I really hope we see the Meteorbs released in MOTUC!!

    Everyone has their own preferences. For me, though, the feeling of the vintage line not being complete mainly revolves around vehicles and beasts. Battle-Ram, Attak Trak, Talon Fighter, Roton, Stridor, etc. These are the things that I would put in that category. The Meteorbs, for me personally, don't fall in that category at all.

    I still think a small set of PVC's is more plausible, if anything is.

    I'd love to get some meteorbs. Not sure that a mini sub is the way to go, but wouldn't mind some of these guys. Speaking of which, are any of them female? LOL

    I'm not sure how Meteorbs would be done for this line, but I'd imagine we'd get a static figure in animal form a-la cringer, and then a one-piece plastic egg for meteor form. That being said I don't think it would satisfy anybody. Meteorb fans would be raging because of the poor conversion, and Meteorb haters wouldn't buy them to begin with.

    Honestly I don't think the vintage Meteorbs look half bad when displayed with classics. They don't fit in any better or worse than they did with the vintage line.
