    what figure would you most dread?

    Ok so I did a couple searches and couldn't find a thread quite like this so if I missed it I apologize and understand if it needs to be merged. With all the polls of figures for 2016 and beyond is there any character that you despise enough that would make even the most adament completes in you cringe? What figure would you most dread seeing a classics version of?

    For me there are quite a few easy passes but the character I most dread would be Oolar. I think a naked He-Man is a total waste of a spot and quite ridiculous yet he has enough support that he might happen which scares me. I wouldn't mind a 2.0 He-man with a vintage style or Alcala head though. Just not a whole figure of a barefoot dude with furry underwear and a spear. Talk about most boring design ever.

    So who do you dread?

    'Dread' is such hyperbole. If you don't want the figure, sell it. Or donate it. Or burn it to show your distaste (and be out $25 plus shipping).

    There are plenty of figures that I really don't care to own. If any of them come in the sub, I'll just see if my wife wants them, or sell them.

    With regards to figures I'm not looking forward to, I'd say many of the one-off characters from Filmation. I dunno. Pick one.
    Sadly, you can't divorce emotion from a toyline built on nostalgia.

    Although I would dread about 95% of the variants or any clone type characters, Melaktha is probably the one figure I would dread the most. He's just so plain looking and despite his appearances in the Filmation series, I've never felt any desire to want to see him make it into plastic form.

    Hmm...hard to say. I now own Loo-Kee and I don't plan to get rid of him.

    Eh, ya know what? Nothin'. I can use just about anything for a joke. It's all useful.

    'Dread' is a little strong, but in terms of figures I really wouldn't want to see, especially in a subscription model? Pretty much any of the new comic designs as variants of existing characters, and pretty much any redesigns/repaints/reissues of any existing characters. Outside of the original vintage variants we're still missing, I think the only versions of characters who are already on my shelf I really wouldn't want to avoid having are Filmation Hordak and Filmation Clawful.

    "Disco" Skeletor. I despise that figure with an unholy passion!

    In fact, I posted about it today in another thread:

    I'd be cool with the SoH "bible" version of He-Ro/Dare, but I really don't want the mini-comic version, and I agree on Skeleteen... it's just a bad idea, a bad name, and a bad design all around... it's reeks of a bad idea from the mid 90s (though "Disco" Skeletor still outranks even him in my book).

    Gepple and the other three scientists from New Adventures. Awful designs, and they'd be next to impossible to resell.

    Any figure with the words "smash blade" on the package. Still gives me a nervous tick at the very mention of the phrase...

    Dread is quite a strong word... Unless we're talking about Battleground Vykron or Disco Laser Lot...

    Yet, what I don't want right now is another Plundor or Nepthu instead of Vultak or Granita...

    I'd say Songster really would be a thorn in my side and cause me a loss when I sell him, though I'm out after this year and will finally cherry pick off the marketplace, ebay, and BBTS, so there's very little in the way they can "force" me to buy at this point, unless he's the december figure. I've already got rid of my hydron,and unnamed one, I just have to find a way of selling my flogg, NA skeletor and rumored oolar. The rest I'm thankfully keeping.

    Filmation Hordak.

    He's the most likely minor variant that could actually happen. I think he'd be a huge waste of a spot that could go to an original character.

    I'm pretty open to it all. Even characters I was not particulary excited about came out as nice figures, so I don't dread any of it. If I did, I wouldn't subscribe to get everything.

    Trollans.
    Madame Razz.
    Songster.

    Well, at least we may get lucky enough to dodge one of the three...

    Your unholy passion fuels my insane desire for that figure! It MUST happen! Even at the expensive of your irritation, good sir. I will gladly accept the figure into this toyline for multiple reasons:

    1. It's just hilariously garish and fantastic.

    2. People hate it SO MUCH that it's bound to create tons of comedic rants and maybe even some super haters making videos of the figure melting in a fire or something, which will be AWEOSME.

    3. To finally acknowledge that this toyline was and always will be ridiculous, and that it should be embraced. Disco Skeletor raises it's fists and screams that fact into the sky! Perhaps he's screaming "WHHYYY?!", but the resounding answer will always be: "Because this toyline has anything and everything and it's INSANE!"
