    Official Laser Light He-Man/Skeletor Speculation and Discussion Thread

    Here is one of the most recent Q&A from ToyGuru on Mattycollector.com

    Laser Power He-Man/Laser Light Skeletor

    I don't know if these have even been discussed by the design team, but is it possible for these figures to have their original light upfeatures?

    Maybe. But that might put them over cost for a basic figure. No plans for them right now, but our long term plan is to get to all the vintage figures in time. We can't confirm anything past King Hssss for now.

    Hearing that answer, would you pay a little extra to have Laser Power He-man and Laser Light Skeletor light up?

    nope. $20 is more than enough for an action figure.

    Not only would I not pay more, I probably wouldn't buy them at all. I have no interest in toys that light up, regardless of whether or not that would result in limiting articulation or interrupting sculpt (the former of which it would almost certainly do).

    I'd -probably- buy LL He-Man and Skelly. But if they actually light up, they'd be a total pass for me.

    No, I don`t pay something more for them.

    I´m not a fan of figures that light up

    I think Laser Skelly should be a 2-in-1 figure with NA Skelly, not really worth having two separate releases IMO.

    But no thanks, no light-up features for me.

    I honestly can't think of a single example where I'd be willing to pay extra for action features.

    agreed with this post 100%. no need for me to have light up features. they are fun for 1 sec but then on the shelf they just look odd.
    I want NA Skeletor and Rio Blast and I want them now!

    No. These variants don't really interest me all that much in the first place.
    I'm hoping for a Disco Skeletor for the next subscription exclusive! Fully flocked!

    I guess I would if you forced me but I don't really want to. After Battle Armor He-Man came without his action feature (my favorite feature of the Masters line), I'm pretty good without any of the other action features.

    I'd get Laser He-Man if he has the He-Mullet, but Laser Skeletor is far too close to NA Skeletor for my liking.

    I would pay more for the light-up features. Not a lot more, but really to me the light-up feature is what these figures are about.

    I'd also pay a good amount for a re-release of the originals, considering how expensive the figures are now.

    The MSRP of $20 was designed for when the line was selling 7500-10k units, and by most estimates that's increased by at least 50%. I don't have a problem with Mattel turning a nice profit, but I'm not interesed in paying extra to add something to the regular figures.

    How much more are we talking about? I'd go $5.00 more but after that it's a little too pricey. As a compromise maybe they could limit articulation a little to add the light up feature. I would like to see this feature though.

    Absolutely not. Most other toy lines don't charge extra for such things, MOTUC shouldn't either. 95% of these would use existing tooling, anyway.

    PoP Variants are part of the vintage line, too! Starburst She-Ra, Shower Power Catra, and Scratchin' Sound Catra for 2015!!!

    I would reluctantly because I really do feel we're getting raked over the coals at 20 bucks a pop for these figs already.

    Wow! I thought everyone would love to have Laser Light He-Man with his action feature. He seemed to be as popular as Tytus. Too bad he's next years con exclusive. Have to make good use of that statue ya know.

    Sorry, I don't want light up features on those figures. I'd be happy with just plain old figures with standard sculpts and articulation. THey are going to look cool without them anyway and you know they will sell out in a hot second.

    Personally, no. Light up and sound features are more a kid appeal function. Us collectors might be impressed a bit to press the buttons but I generally leave batteries out of toys. Though I'm also someone who finds "light pipe" eyes to be a rather goofy gimmick that hinders aesthetics and have painted over Transformers eyes, so I may not be the biggest fan of such extraneous features.

    I'd have to if I were locked in a subscription, but otherwise I wouldn't by choice.

    I'd do $25 for one or two but they'd need to look like something other than repaints as it's kind of gimmicky....

    First off, I would love to see Lase Light He-Man and Skeletor in the line. The price hike is a crock though.
    It's hard enough now to pay $20 for a figure with crappy paint apps, and loose joints. Imagine paying $30 based on (Grayskulls price) for a figure with crappy paint apps and loose joints. Then again the consolation would be that I have an awesome light up sword... that'll probably flake, and malfuntion. Fix the QC problems and I'll buy Matty.

    how many of you would like the lasers sooner than later?

    I'm sort of fearing the results of this thread as i reaaaaaaaaaaally want these figures sooner than later

    Assuming that these would include electronics and would cost 30US , how many of you are out there wanting these?
