    What next after Grayskull?

    With Castle grayskull now arriving safe and sound for most of us and filling a rather large hole in the collection, it begs the question- what's next for this line on top of the monthly figures?

    Would you like Mattel to gauge whether a new preorder for a new playset would work again? Snake mountain perhaps? Or something smaller like the fright zone?

    Or would you prefer to have some more of the iconic vehicles released?

    Or maybe a specialised sub-line?

    Or are you just wanting the figures to complete your collection now?

    After Grayskull, I think it's only fitting that Point Dread & Talon Fighter come next (and come soon... strike while the iron's hot, you know?).
    After that, I think (in no particular order) we should see Stridor and/or Night Stalker, Roton, The Slime Pit, and a variety of smaller creatures/characters/beasts (Dree-Elle, Meteorbs, that sort of thing... go smaller after the massive stuff).
    I'd be pretty happy with just the above tackled in addition to the regular monthly figures.

    Here's what I'm really after still for Classics…

    Snake Mountain

    Back half of the Battle Ram

    Point Dread and the Talon Fighter

    Stridor

    Slime Pit

    Teela's unicorn charger.

    A few of the "Alcala" monsters. Purple monster He-Man saves the Goddess/Sorceress from in the first mini comic, Ice Hacker, Aramesh demon, Masks of Power Demons, etc.

    Definitely need a Snake Mountain pre-order, along with wrapping up 2014, 2015 and at least another Filmation mini-sub.

    Snake Mountain, back half of Battle Ram, and Stridor would make me happy.
    In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan,
    Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone;
    Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow,
    In the bleak midwinter, long ago...
    ...a stable place sufficed.

    What can I give Him, poor as I am?
    If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb;
    If I were a Wise Man, I would do my part;
    Yet what can I give Him?....[I can] give my heart.

    Hmmmm...but is the Castle Grayskull iron really hot? I figure we'd have to wait to see it's December's sale performance.

    But on the other hand, I believe I read that Day of Sales are icing on the cake. Don't know if that pertains to Castle Grayskull as well since it was the first pre-order of this line.

    Night stalker and stridor are a given,I think.

    Point dread and talon fighter are a must.

    Battle ram,a must

    Single jet sled,would be nice

    Roton,the bad guys need something.

    I actually think doing three towers at different times might work better than snake mountain.

    But honestly,castle grayskull is so massive,I am good with play sets. I would still buy any released,but if no more happen,I will be fine.

    TG has all but poo-pooed the option of another large playset, so I'll limit my reaching for the sky to the back half of Battle Ram.
    Harken the coming of Dragstor!!

    I think Snake Mountain is the natural choice, but I also think from a marketing, production, and sales stand point, too much could go wrong. I think Point Dread leading to the Talon Fighter, and back half of Battle Ram would be awesome.

    The main thing that I am interested in at this point is wrapping MOTU and POP, and getting major NA characters.

    The main character that I want that I don't know if fits into the NA essential category is Crita. That would be my "triumph" figure.

    I am really not that interested in another playset. Cost and space are both an issue. I would want a Filmation inspired Crystal Castle before a Snake Mountain though.

    Otherwise, Point Dread could be neat, and it doesn't hurt that it would utilize the Castle I already have.

    I'm really not that interested in the back half of the Battle Ram, I would rather see the Roton or Land Shark.

    But in the end, my main priority is more POP characters.
    It is spelled "Crita", not "Critta". Misspell her name and Crita will knock the "T" out of you!

    Also...get her into the line!
